A 'Pit Stop'

'Balancing Life', Sunil's blog (link on the right panel), has listed *this* blog among 'Interesting Pit Stops'. I did not know what a pit stop meant so did some online searching.

Here are some of my findings:

1 - a stop at 'the pits' during an automobile race In motor sport, a pit stop is where a racing vehicle stops in the pits during a race for refueling, new tires.... The 'pits' usually comprise
of a pit lane which runs parallel to the start/finish straight ...

2 - a stop (as during a trip) for fuel, food, or rest or for use of a restroom.

3 - a temporary deviation from a direct or usual course. Eg: "a career pit stop...where he worked temporarily in between TV jobs"

4 - a popular slang for a toilet break.

    A pit stop is like a rest-inn and not a rest room. The underlying theme seems to be that there is a 'pit' and there is a 'use' (fit/fill/pour...).

    Now, people have different views of the same object. For eg. take a mechanic at work; he views the pit stop as his working place. So it all depends on which angle one observes from ones cockpit !

    Holy... Pit !
