My brain keeps trying to make this thread be about plate tectonics:

Was Boca-River Plate the biggest sports showdown in history?

Cognitive dissonance every time!

At the moment, the threads "Vegetarian in-law at carnivore family dinner" and "How do I go about selling my car?" are listed next to each other in the IMHO forum. My brain merged these two titles into one:

"How do I go about selling my dinner?"

I just read a thread title as "Prunes Flying The Wrong Way In Movies"*.

*instead of "Planes Flying The Wrong Way In Movies". Maybe I was fantasizing about an animated WWII film featuring the California Raisins as a crack fighter pilot squad.

Not really misread, but when I saw "How about harvesting the whole potential energy of the atmosphere?" my first thought was: If you liquefied it, you would have one heck of a torrent coming down...

Also I keep reading "Brand names that are JUST a surname...". I keep expecting a list of things like McDonald's, Sears & Roebuck, DeLorean...

In view of recent horrible events, I'm sure I'm not the only one to read this thread's title as Wilson's Mass Killer. Problem need help

"Dogs using earbuds for sleeping can help to sleep better?"

Help the dog or help you? The former I can sort of see but questions about putting them on the dog arise. The latter I don't think so.

What sort of music would a dog like to sleep to, anyway?
