    1) 'on' and 'at' are synonymous in that context. 'on' refers to located on top of, whereas 'at' refers to a general point in space. 'in' is incorrect in that context. It means, *inside the sidewalk.

    2) You nearly missed the plane, didn't you?

    3) Gee is a variation of Jesus. Both words begin with the sound represented by the letter "g". It's common. Adults, as well as children use it. For example,

    EX: Gee, Mom. Do we have to have liver for dinner?

    A: Do you know when the bus comes?
    B: Gee, sorry, I don't.

    4) Gosh is common. Both men and women use it. I'm not sure who uses it more, though. Tom Hanks, a famous US actor uses it.
