Apparently, I’ve been tying my shoes incorrectly all my life. I’ve been tying the granny knot, which comes untied easily and tends to be oriented toe-to-heel instead of side-to-side. I tie my shoelaces right over left, then right loop over left loop. Fortunately, it’s easy to correct: reverse the first step. For me, I have to do left over right, then right loop over left loop. Do they take away your kindergarten diploma for this?
I watched Aliens today. In the scene where the ship is dropping to the planet below, the pilot says over the radio, “In the pipe. Five by five.” I realized that despite having seen this film several times, I had no idea what she meant, other than some general notion of well-being. My curiosity was piqued, so I looked around online and discovered that by “in the pipe,” she meant the ship was following the correct course, and by “five by five,” she meant her radio transmission quality was perfect.
