* So there's this quote- it's the page quote for GravityIsAHarshMistress- where Bugs says "I know this defies the law of gravity, but I never studied law." If he knows something defies the law of gravity, that means that he knows what the law of gravity is. So how does not having studied law help, if it just means he doesn't know ''other'' laws? He could have gotten the same point across by saying "I ''think'' this defies the law of gravity"- in that case, it'd be leaving open the possibility that he was wrong.

** Answering this one myself, after a bit more thought: Bugs' statement isn't based on AchievementsInIgnorance in and of itself. Rather, when you say "study law" you're talking about laws of government rather than immutable physical laws. What he's doing is just redefining the law of gravity as a law that can be broken.

** Because shaking him isn't outrageous and more of an issue since it could be seen as normal or imitated. Putting him in a washing machine is obviously not good, and less likely to be imitated or misconstrued.

* Why is it that in "Baby Buggy Bunny" they edit out the scene where he shakes Finster, but not the scene where he puts finster in a washing machine and then throws him at the ceiling and "forgets" to catch him? Keep in mind, Bugs has figured out that Finster is not really a baby at this point. Even if it's because it ''looks'' like child abuse, so is putting the kid in a washing machine!

* In "RabbitFire", Daffy gets a book titled ''1000 Ways to Cook Rabbits'' '''from Bugs' rabbit hole'''. The question is, why would Bugs own a copy of a book about cooking his own species?

** Simple--he stole it from an enemy as a souvenir. Besides, it only makes sense that he'd read up on the opposition in his spare time.
