with today's cable and satellite set-ups, idk about you but I personally wouldn't like to flip through 400 ******* channels.

1. It's an instinctual visual guide to the question. Incase the person cannot hear or understand what has been said. (you'd be surprised at how many visual ques are used when speaking).
2. Maybe they have a set-top box with no external controls.

Agreed on the rest though.

Oh and in response to 8. obligatory "yo mamma" joke even though it makes no sense.

1. As someone has already said, visual cues help when asking questions.
2. It's an investment. You spend the time searching for the remote to save yourself future trips. Instead of getting up every half hour, or two minutes, depending on how much you like the show you choose, you invest time to find the remote to solve your future problems.
3. The phrase doesn't mean what you're implying. It's more along the lines of, you want your cake to look at, but you also want to eat it. I believe the Italian equivalent is "you want your wife drunk but your wine bottle full". You can't have both.
4. It's just a funny saying, no need to get your panties in a twist.
5. Not everyone notices everything that happens in a film. Sure, the big stuff is pretty obvious but things happen in the background, or someone could be focusing in the wrong space.
6. This is a politeness. Don't be pedantic over it, the person is simply asking if you have the time for them to ask a question. This is your opportunity to turn someone down before they spew a long question, or a question that demands an answer.
7. New in this instance does not mean a new item, but a newer item than previously stated. This is like asking, how can that be a new car if another car already exists like it? Well, the car was recently made, so it is new. A newer, improved version of something is new and improved.
8. Sure life is the longest thing anyone will do, but that doesn't mean it isn't short. We get a handful of decades on this world, a world that has been around for billions of years. In the scheme of the universe, and even the world, our lives are just a minuscule piece of an enormous puzzle. We spend time worrying and caring about frivolous things that don't matter in the long run, because life is so short. In respect to ourselves it's the longest thing we do, but in regards to anything less selfish, it is a single point in an infinite line. (inb4 wibbly wobbly, timey wimey).
9. Some bus stops have multiple buses.
