The one that's always bugged me is

put item 2 of the rect of someObject into tVar

Rects have a defined order of items, and I can never remember whether 
it's "left,top..." or "top,left..." and I end up looking it up every 
time. I'd love to have a more normal (all right, English-like... 
there... I've said it) way to remember and write this.
