    Thank GOD this mystery's solved. I haven't had a good night's sleep since June of 1986.

    I wonder if the same guy will spend any time proving that you CANNOT take the miles off of a car by running it in reverse?

    What a great F'ing movie! They definitely don't make them like that anymore.

    Sounds like a project I would've wasted my time trying to solve

    Kudos to the guy who found it, always cool to have some insight as to when that was.

    OK, next mystery--why the hell was there a school bus full of kids at 6:00 pm (the one that picked up Ed Rooney at the end of the movie)? I guess school gets out late in Chicago.

    And then: How the hell does Ferris change lanes without moving the steering wheel at all? I remember that bothering me whenever I watched the movie.



    Anyway, great classic movie!!!

    I don't get it. Doesn't sound solved to me.


    The article tells us which game was being played on the TV but then it says a case can be made for Bueller's scenes in the stadium being filmed at a later date. So how is this solved?? Could very easily be two different games in play here.


    Right? Or am I missing something??

    Oh, I'm sorry. I can't come to the door right now. I'm afraid that in my weakened condition, I could take a nasty spill down the stairs and subject myself to further school absences. You can reach my parents at their places of business. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your concern for my well-being. Have a nice day.

    Anyway, great classic movie!!!
    After driving a rental on more than one occasion in the US I wonder how you can keep a car in a single lane even while flailing your arms round like a mad man at the wheel!...I swear, every rental I've ever had has tried to crash into something and the steering never seems to have any specific control over the direction of travel...It's a wonder there's any people left over there!

    That's because they are rentals and we (U.S. Citizens) are legally obligated to beat the shit out of them.
