    Has anyone noticed that each week Zoe has a new outfit on ? Now if she is living inside the robot, how does she get a change of clothes >

    And how does she know how to drive one? Did she already get a driver permit? What's the legal age to start driving, especially a truck, in Caprica?

    If a 10 year old boy in Georgia can figure out how to steal his grandmas caddy, I think a teen aged computer hacking/programer can do it dispit(sp) the body she is in.

    I'm pretty certain that she's of legal age. 1) In the flashback of when Ben was being questioned in the police station it was pretty clear he was being treated as an adult not a kid. THat was a year earlier when they would have been 14. 2) Will Adamas grandmother said that on Tauron boys are considered adults at 12. I'm sure the age is similar in all the colonies. On our own culture people were considered full adults as soon as they reached puberty until less than 100 years ago. In most of our worlds cultures they still are considered adults at puberty.

    Concerning the clothes, it could be a generative program like someone already suggested or it could be a conscious decision by the producers (with no necessary explanation) to show her humanity. Remember she isn't really *inside* the robot physically but it is her psyche. By portraying her with a change of clothes every week we see that her psyche is just as human as our own. Concerning the driving, well she is in a robot that can think approximately as well as a human. Humans learn the fundamental rules about the world and then are able to extrapolate to new situations. Driving follows these rules and if you remember back to when you started driving there was no problem figuring out the controls. Most of the problems were with dealing with traffic and the rules of the road rather than physically operating the machinery. Combine that ability with perhaps some prior knowledge by Zoe and there is really no difficulty at all.

    your all forgetting V-world. In there you can fly a viper, so why cant you learn to drive? I think thats where she got the skill from, ages before the series. After all new cap has cars, and we've only seen a small % of the V-world. I think this makes more sense then random chance, even though i was driving on my farm at 10 lol
