1. On a computer, why isn't the opposite of "shut down", shut up?
2. Why is it that you can make it rain by washing your car, windy by clearing away all of the leaves from your lawn, and cause the price of gas to fall $0.10/gallon six hours after you've filled your whole tank?

I would love to know. In fact, if you have some ideas for the prevention of such madness, please share it with the rest of the class.
Peace, love and serenity now,
