Air Bag
Wednesday, August 24, 2005

Sorry about the lack of updates, was at a meeting in Utica for a few days, working on that big Digicom merger...

So whats with the name "air bag" anyway? Now we all have gotten used to that name, so it sounds very normal to us... But when you really think about it, it is a dumb name for what the object is. What about something like safety cushion? Or collision buffer? Or gas accelerated transonic ballistic nylon emergency barrier?

Ok even if I cant think of something better, air bag is a bit stupid... You dont call a hose a "water tube" do you? Or the car itself, is it a "people box"? Just saying, its a pretty nice invention, maybe a better name would help it out.

    What about things like Lobster.

    A Mobster is one who Mobs. Is a Lobster one who Lobs? Or Cheese. Think the word cheese. Stare at it for a bit. What a weird word.

    Want a tough time? Try to think of a self describing word(s) for Poloroid.. .Instant Optical freezing paper dispenser?

    Hi, from Guarda, Portugal.
    I love you city: I just loved NYC...I am still working on my thesis on French antiamericanism so airbags aren't quite my cup pf tea. Yet...Portugal, among other dire records, is number one for car crashes...strange country. I'll keep surfing the net up up the way to the Fith Avenue and your blog see you.
    Thank you for going to anti-isms.
