    Q. Oracle - I'm having a shocker of a day at work! Tell me something funny about Coldplay that we don't know, so I can smile and forget my troubles..... Thanking you kindly and hopefully!

    The Oracle replies:

    The first time they played Glastonbury, their then Tour manager took them to the wrong gate to load in their gear with very little time to spare. As they were first on that Sunday morning, they had to run across fields with all their stuff to the New Band's Tent, which was about as far away as it could be. They just made it in time to play.

    Q. Dear Oracle, Do you happen to know if ducks have armpits?

    The Oracle replies:

    Given that they don't have arms... no!

    Q. Hi, Oracle. I have a question that urgently needs to be answered before I get my ass sued! Ok, so I've been writing songs, and the other day I listened to a bunch of Coldplay songs backwards. Surprisingly, some of their songs sound awesome when played backwards. So I was thinking of reproducing the melody of these songs played backwards and adapting them into my own songs. Is doing this against the law? Could I get sued?

    The Oracle replies:

    Well, you didn't come up with the melody did you? So technically you are still taking someone else's work - backwards or otherwise!

    Q. Dear Oracle, I need you to answer this question that is important to me... you know everything and you will know the answer to this. Do you think that I should become a mormon just to be with a girl... I like the girl, she is very into that religion, I'm not... but I'm sure she will be glad if I join, I don't like religion but I like her... what should I do?

    The Oracle replies:

    Personally I would say don't do it. I don't think you should do anything that extreme just because you like someone. If you can't be together in harmony respecting each other's beliefs, I don't see how it can work out. Many people do convert to be with someone but I think that's a huge sacrifice. As you say you're not into religion I wouldn't consider changing unless the relationship grows, maybe then you could consider exactly what compromises you would both be prepared to make.
