Was Terrence Howard really the distant uncle of Regis Blackgaard?

How did Zachary Sellars get up the Whit's End stairs to the second floor?

How did Glenn Adams manage to be so aggravating and not get physically injured?

(P.S. This is my 1500th post.)

Does it ever mention Whit's End having an elevator? I only remember the servant staircase and the main stairway. This was a 1930s style building, before many things were handicap-accessible.

I was just kidding around, but there might actually be one.

My question is, "Can burglars get into Wooton's house through the slide?"
No because he waxes it every day!

How is Odyssey not famous after Novacom?

You would think that at the very least, someone g-man would check up on Odyssey every now and then, to make sure that no evil corporations are rising with Dr. Regis Blackgaard as—I said too much.

Why are there all kinds of churches in Odyssey, yet only two denominations are mentioned?

Some could be non-denominational churches.

Well, I don't know about Gorbachev, but I suppose because Dr. Dobson was sort of in charge of everything at FOTF, they stuck him in just for fun.
And also, since Hal Smith was so well known for his role as Otis Campbell in the Andy Griffith Show (Parley Baer, voice of Joe Finneman and many others, also acted in Mayberry as the town mayor), it was kind of a tribute to Hal, I guess. Many other "things from the real world" are spoofed, indirectly mentioned, or otherwise referenced in the show.

Just some info!

Does Wooton realize he's not accomplishing anything except annoying Mr. Whittaker on the cover of the new Official Guide? (I'm looking at the cover just now and happened to notice this.)

What happens to the person whose body you take over when you use the Transmuter?

How does Whit keep the government from breathing down his neck? If the Imagination Station is dangerous enough to cause physical harm to Aubrey, you would think that the government would be pretty interested.

Why would Bernard Walton's grandfather spend all that money on twenty-seven pigs? (Even with Garvey Hiram Meltsner's lisp, he should have been smart enough to not pay the exorbitant fee.)

Because he thought he was getting 2,025 pigs, which would make it
about 10 bucks a pig.

But, then again, how long ago was it? If it was when Grandpa Walton and G. H. Meltsner were young men, that still would have been a high price. For that would have been in the Twenties-Thirties era, when things were quite cheap.

That's true, but it doesn't help at ALL when figuring out why G. H. Meltsner was asking for all that money!

Some people just think they have a superior product when they don't, or they think they can take advantage of some chump, or both. If we're asking "why" questions, then why did Grandpa Walton pay all that money?

As the roommate put it, it "was still a pretty good bargain".
