    This had nothing to do with words. If anything, it`s a short film about segues. HAHA!

    This reminds me of when my uncle asks me (yes he STILL freakin asks me this. I`m 23 years old.) "Why do feet smell and noses run?" and "Why can you drive on a parkway, but you park on a driveway?"

    @ pui: Why does night fall and not break? Why day break and not fall?

    "Why does night fall and not break? Why day break and not fall?"

    because the sun breaks over the horizon in the morning and falls below the horizon at night

    @edana42 It`s just a play on words. The same as the "Why do feet smell and noses run?"

    Pretentious, self-indulgent, and ultimately meaningless. People say they "like it" out of fear that they didn`t understand something.

    That was creative. If there was any overall statement to be made, I didn`t see it. Just a general playing with words and their many meanings. It`s abstract, just take it for what it is.

    Frustrated because you didn`t get it? I understood it perfectly and enjoyed it.

    This is a video short from NPR`s Radio Lab. The topic of the day was "Words." I found the video quite enjoyable, as it does a good job of showing how one word (eg: "play," "blow," "break," "split," etc) can take on so many meanings and, relatedly, emotions.

    took me a little while to see what they were doing but once I did I thought it was pretty cool. I suspect the people who don`t like it are the same people who get mad when a movie doesn`t have a neat and tidy ending...

    It doesn`t have to be "neat and tidy", just not ultimately pointless. If they were going to put this much effort into it, why not have the words form coherent statements?

    They include things like dripping SNOT (maybe suppose to be "edgy" or something?) as well as a load of feel-good "We are the world" type nonsense. Bleah.

    ok so there are 9 words, PLAY, BLOW, BREAK, SPLIT, RUN, FLY, FALL, LIGHT, and SPACE each word has many meanings and representations, and the video as a whole is not meant to mean anything, it`s just a representation of meaning... if ya catch my drift?

    @duffy--I didn`t see it as pointless. The statement is simply that words have many meanings. The dripping snot was referencing the word "run," and was preceded by a "run" in a stocking (coming off of "split")and a man going on a "run," and followed by "run"ny paint, "run"ning water, "run"ning a red light, a boy "run"ning away, and a "run"way, which has a plane "fly"ing by...etc, etc, etc. You don`t find that play on words enjoyable? If not, that`s cool, but recognize that it isn`t pointless.

    Nicely done, and the meaning was caught early on. But in the end, rather pointless.

    @ edana42: I wasn`t really expecting an answer to an abstract question.

    Good job at completely missing the point.
