I thought someone might speculate that they're in order of the brackets, so I made the list alphabetical, not saying either way if you have that category though...

I'm guessing the categories are based off of quotes from literature? You know, from those papery things called books people used to read.

I believe I know the 'common theme' of the category names. But I am not in the competition, so I do not know if I should commment? So, I will make my comment cagey.
I think they are all related, in some way, to a man of literature who had friends who were interested in a popular theory of the time about the Earth. Am I right cagey Bat Guy?

Hmmm...
-Monty Python's Flying Circus
-Beetlejuice (Tim Burton)
-James and the Giant Peach (Roald Dahl)
-Not sure where this comes from
-Jules Verne
-Edgar Allan Poe
-Ben Franklin
-I'm not sure what "The Gates" refers to...the art installation in Central Park by Christo and Jeanne-Claude? The short-lived TV show?...???

The only theme I can seem to come up with is something about unexpected change/results. Hmmmm indeed.

I haven't got the foggiest of what the themes are about. Now, if these would have a Dutch interpretation, it might clear things up...

So these are the categories we'll get if I make it to the next round of the MIT?

Anyway, I love the "Thorsday" one. "Tor" is "Thor" in Swedish, "Dag" is "day" in Swedish, and "Torsdag" is Swedish for Thursday. :P

May fifth was dubbed thorsday because that's when the movie Thor came out.

And Wednesday comes from "Odin's Day" and Friday is from "Freya's Day"...not sure about the others, though. :)

Interesting side note...before the Roman Catholics invaded the Germanic regions, Freya's Day was considered a lucky day (since Freya is the goddess of luck) and thirteen was considered a lucky number, making Friday the 13th one of the luckiest days you could have! The Church didn't like that, though, so they spread the opposite as true. :P

I think I've heard about that before.

And I know that Wednesday is before Thursday, and Friday is after Thursday, and that Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards. :P

I'm a bit worried "Devoured by a Rhinoceros" leaves too much open to interpretation...
