    What IS Mind the Gap? I may have the answer

    "Mind the gap" is a warning to train passengers to remind them of the sometimes significant gap between the train door and the station platform. It was first introduced in 1969 by the London Underground rapid transit system.

    Some station platforms on the London Underground are curved. Since the cars are straight, the distance from the platform to the car at certain points is greater than normal, and the phrase "mind the gap" is painted in capital letters along the edge of such platforms. A recorded announcement is also played whenever a train arrives at a station, consisting of "mind the gap" repeated several times, followed by "stand clear of the doors, please," and "this train is now ready to depart".

    So after looking into this, I have decided that Frozen is obsessed with, and has a fettish for, trains and and their gaps.

    Mind the gap.

    I'd go for the gap of time lost or gained when switching through time zones...

    Or the gap in age between FF and his Wife / Mom.

    They're really giant boomerangs and we wear parachutes. When we're above our destination we jump off and glide gently to the ground... come to think of it... Fuck trains, we need to Mind the Gap >.>

    What if you jump too early? Does the boomerang fly into you and cut you up?
