He was predicting social distancing because of coronavirus.

Has Paul lost any money due to this stock market downturn?

lovelyritametermaid asked
In "Within and Without You," why is George talking about the space between us all?   

Beatlebug answered
It was a reference to the long-forgotten Indian Flu epidemic of 1967, when people were practicing much of the social distancing techniques that we employ today, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ahhh Girl answered a bit later
He was predicting social distancing because of coronavirus.

Beatlebug inquired
In Dear Prudence , John says "the clouds will be a daisy chain". Will the clouds actually drop out of the sky and form a daisy chain? Will the clouds look like a daisy chain? Is this some kind of surreal yohnandjoko humor? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?! 

and Ahhh Girl inquired
Has Paul lost any money due to this stock market downturn?

To answer Beatlebug's question:

Indeed, the clouds will form a daisy chain-like circle, but they will stay in the air. You see, in cloud culture, the "Daisy Chain" is a fun and popular dance for get-togethers. John had insight into this behaviour, often unnoticed by humans, not only because his "mother was of the sky," but also because Yoko was a woman, and therefore "the other half of the sky".a-hard-days-night-george-9

I'll just let someone answer AG's question, to give it a chance:

No. All of Paul's stonks are invested in sheepdog breeding and frozen vegetarian food, and since neither business has been affected because they are both considered essential, Paul has not lost any money a-hard-days-night-george-9ahdn_john_08_gif

No not quite. Due to popular demand for anime-inspired Beatles body pillows, the Beatles decided to write an imaginary boyfriend type song - "Hold Me Tight " - dedicated to said fans, as anime-inspired Beatles body pillows did not exist at the time. It was indeed decided that Paul would provide lead vocals for this charming fantasy, for it was agreed upon that Paul is the most sexy. Jane Asher was not brought in to discuss about the situation. So the answer is no, not quite. However, only a week later, anime-inspired Beatles body pillows did indeed become available for stock, so fans could substitute the song with the body pillows instead.

Why did the Nixon administration attempted to deport John Lennon from the United States from the year 1971 onwards?

There are two theories. First, like countless millions of others, Tricky Dick was devastated by the Beatles breakup and badly wanted them to reform - which he felt couldn't happen as long as John and Paul were on separate continents. And second, that Nixon had received music-industry knowledge (directly from Elvis Presley) that John was assembling a supergroup, "The Bed-In Bedouins", featuring johnandyoko alongside Curtis Mayfield, Marc Bolan, Glen Campbell and Jerry Garcia; Nixon believed that no one band should have that much concentrated star power, and vowed to prevent it from happening.

Why did Paul ask his girl to close her eyes before he'd kiss her?

I'd give him a hug, before asking him for an autograph. Ringo deserves many hugs.

Why was "All Things Must Pass " left out of "Let It Be "?

Paul didn't like the idea of telling people to Let It Be when All Things Must Pass anyway. He felt George's song made his song redundant, so he told George to save it for later.

In what notable fashion was All Things Must Pass eventually released?

In order to prove the point of the lyrics, John and Paul thought it would be effective to take a pass on it.

 

Why didn't "anybody" respond to Ringo's request to "rock on" during the recording of If You've Got Troubles?

The first 1000 copies were released in a limited edition mini-skirt, taken from old unused unsold Apple clothing stock, however, due to the mess Apple were in, the 1000 copies were put in one mini skirt. This was the inspiration for Apple releasing such items as 'Penny Lane ' horse thermometers, microwavable 'Here Comes The Sun ' ice-cream cups and 'I Want You (She's So Heavy') weighing machines which played a small section of either part of the song depending on the weight recorded.

George answered this in 'Only A Northern Song ', written to address that one specific song. All lyrics explain why the song was kept in the vaults as does Paul's trumpet playing (he wanted to play a mean trumpet solo on 'IYGT' but was vetoed when John hid the trumpet).

 

If 'One and One Is Two' what is "One and One and One"?

What infamous event happened in 1964 that caused John to leave "The Beatles" and form "The Other Beatles without The other 3 Beatles"?

John decided that the bowl cut fashion, was indeed a lousy choice, as he believed that in no way would it gain massive popularity with a teenage audience. He decided to leave the band so that his new band could adopt a teddy boy look, something he grew up with during his troubled childhood. The remaining Beatles eventually renamed themselves to "The One Less Beatle Beatles"

What significant occurrence happened on the day of John's birth?

Breaking up the Beatles......but the prank went too far and the boys took it too seriously, and they accidentally actually broke up. It was still quite a laugh, though. 

 

Why was George's hair so fantastic at all times?

George Hair-rison was born to a lineage of prominent and professional barbers, leading him to develop a strong sense of hair fashion at a young age. In fact, it was actually him that gave the idea of all the Beatles wearing a mop-topped, clean boy image compared to their previous scruffy, teddy boy look.

What character did Ringo cast as a cameo in "Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" and why?

He played Leia's secret lover from the outer regions.  There's that once scene in the movie where they are in the car and they break out into song.  He was cast because George Lucas was actually one of the biggest Beatles fans ever.

 

Why was he not in Star Wars Episode VI?

When it was revealed to the cinematic audience that Leia's love interest was actually Han Solo, viewers began to question the discrepancies between Leia and her love interests. As a result, Ringo Starr (bless his soul) was unfairly cut from production of "Return of the Jedi", with an off-screen death used to justify this. However, it was actually hinted that Ringo would return in the prequels and the sequels, as the genius remake of the original trilogy on Blu-Ray DVD's featuring all new (and as we all know, all perfect) CG animation also include a small scene where it was hinted that Ringo would cast as a dark Sith lord.

Which movie did Ringo return to in later Star Wars productions, and as who and why?
