    Default Why is it that...?

    Just been to the theatre. Why is that the people who have booked seats in the centre of the row are always the last to turn up?

    It is an instance of Reilly's Law** in action.

    And why is it that many places show opening/pub food times as 12p.m.? There is no such time any more than there is a 12a.m. 12 is the m and therefore cannot be 'p' it or 'a' it. What's wrong with 12 noon (or midnight if necessary)?

    And why is it that the person in the front at a set of lights is the last person to see they have turned green.

    And why do I spend twenty minutes looking for something, getting more and more frustrated and then Mrs C comes along and points to it immediately in front of me?
