    I would be more likely acting like your brother, being the one to push you out of the way. However, I don't think it's weird for you to think about the cockroach in this way, I just think it's a person thinking differently than myself (AND, not only that, it's pretty cool, too!)

    And the one guy was like "oh I guess you mean breathing like Darth Vadar?" and I said "no, breathing like this vac machine, but I bet Vadar was terrible at sneaking....though I guess he didn't have to be good at it cause he could just crush someone with the Force or something."

    And so forth. But it really tickled me to think about it. I got a huge kick! Even though no one else seemed to find it AS interesting a topic to speculate on.
    Hmmm... This isn't the first thing I would think about when using that vac, though I would be extremely impressed when you brought this up and try to imagine the world as a place that sounded like vacuum, in which case, "sneaking up on someone" would also sound like vacuum.

    Haha, it makes you guys so fun to just hang out with.

    (although I might've let you step in the cockroach, just to see if it'd make a "crunch" sound..)

    Regarding the "B battery":

    Before there were "chips", or even transistors, there were devices called vaccuum tubes which performed the same functions. In order to operate, tubes required two voltages: a low voltage to operate the "filament", or "heater", which generated heat necessary for the tube to operate, and a high voltage which actually did the work.

    The low voltage battery in portable radios was called the "A" battery. The high voltage battery was called the "B" battery.

    You can't find B batteries anymore because there is no need for them. So
    there you have it!
    ...

    Please refer to this site for more info (http://www.angelfire.com/ma2/AdamVon/tobatt.html), I would really not like to type the whole thing out. The gist is that A and B sized were used in old antique radios. They do exist and are still made by Eveready in 22.5, 45 and 67.5 volt batteries.

    Cool, I didn't know that!

    (But I did assume, once you asked, that the answer probably was that they DO exist)

    Of course I wonder about things, but I don't get how it's so different from anybody else. I'm sure that everyone wonders about stuff - and in turn, I couldn't care any less about what's in their heads.
