a: red car ~
b: wearing your lingerie

What:

"Red is the most popular colour, for several reasons. First, red is sexy. Having a red car is like wearing your lingerie on the outside: it says I'm a fast-living, fast-loving, fast-moving individual. It means that you'd be driving a Ferrari if it weren't for minor budgetary constraints. The other explanation for the popularity of red cars is that a lot of people are secretly pretending to be Postman Pa"

a: red blood cells ~
b: oxygen barges

What:

They move oxygen around the body the way barges moves stuff up and down the Mississippi river. Of course the red blood cells have can only carry 4 oxygen molecules / cell. But there are many of these little boats, about 45% of the blood, so the system works pretty well.

a: buffered water solution ~
b: carpeted room

What:

"You can think of pure water as a very echoing room. Every small sound bounces around and sounds very loud. By contrast, a buffered water solution is like a room with all the floors and walls covered in carpet - small sounds get swallowed up by the carpet and are harder to notice, but you can still hear large sounds."
