Questions for the modern world

Shawn Klein has a coterie of questions that desperately need answers. Or not. Sample:
10. Is there another word for synonym?

11. Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all?"

12. What do you do when you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?
And my favourite:
6. I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "Where's the self-help section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

If you didn't know the word "dictionary", where would you look it up?

(Ok, so maybe that was better before the Web.)

Why are things that go by ship called cargo, and when they go by car it's a shipment?
