It's Friday Poll Time!

Poll #1102189 Friday! Friday!! Friday!!!

htothem -- If renob423 feels that writing questions every day (for 5 years) is easy, why doesn't he submit more to QOD? Are you sure you want that? Weeks and weeks of questions about what's wrong with Joe and Uncle Lucky's pumpkins? My real question - If/when I get sinus surgery and they accidentally mess with my brain, what super power will result?

You will become living detector of truth and lies: if you are told a lie, your nose will begin to bleed. The bigger the lie, the worse the nosebleed. They'll call you Bleedoccio.
4(30.8%)
Now that the usual snot exit route has been tampered with, you'll be able to restrict its movement. Eventually you'll be able to distribute snot stores elsewhere on your face, altering your apperance and making you Snotface: Maestra of Disguise.
3(23.1%)
You are blinded when surgeon accidentally severs your optic nerve. As they recover from their weakened state, nerves in your nasal cavity consume your eye sockets, giving you Daredevil-like sonar, except for smelling. You'll be known as Snifftrix.
1(7.7%)
Your brain will become more sensitive to ESP. Unfortunately, this manifests as crippling sinus headaches, for which you return to the surgeon furiously demanding another procedure. Nobody will ever know how for a short time, you had a superpower.

absolutcalm -- I'd like to take this moment to plug my new blogsite, Big Adventures of Little Pee Wee. Question? Uhm... I don't know.. blah,blah,blah, Cowbell. While I'm complimented that you think the Friday Pollsters are an audience worth targeting, that's a shittyass question.

observacious -- A man on the train was yelling, "In the year 2012...the buildings will tumble like washer/dryers...we will all be dancing with the stars. We will be dancing with the wolves. The wolves will be hungry." What does that mean?

It's a variation on Andy Warhol's 15 Minutes of Fame theory: with the surging popularity of reality shows, anyone can be a celebrity. When we're all dancing together in the spin cycle of life, how can we tell the stars from the wolves?
3(23.1%)
If Kevin Costner goes on Dancing with the Stars, I can guarantee that show one more viewer.
4(30.8%)
By 2012, the idea of corporate advancement working like a ladder will be no more: CEOs and Admin. Assistants will be in a constant state of flux, leaping ahead or falling behind one another. Dancing together, the wolves will eat the stars alive.
3(23.1%)
Just when you think they have used up all the reality show ideas they could possibly come up with, the Fall of 2012 brings us "Wave Pool Synchronized Swimming with the Stars". First up? Harvey Kaitel.

TWOFER!!! calamine_tea -- What is Skeeta The Clown doing these days now that -thanks to the hip-hop community- "skeet" has a whole new context? So this must be how renob423's inside joke questions seem to him. They're a lot funnier when you know what's going on.

He kept the name, changing his schtick from "jolly advocate for North Carolina" to "Homey the Clown for the New Millennium".
1(7.7%)
Breathing a long sigh of relief now that he no longer has to live a lie.
5(38.5%)
He's still in the postcard-clown biz. There's plenty of states that need a clown mascot where what they lack in understanding of the hip-hop culture, they make up for in admiration of the clown-culture.
3(23.1%)
Hello? What is the hip-hop community doing these days now that -thanks to Skeeta the Clown- they have this fun new term to toss around?
4(30.8%)

TWOFER!!! calamine_tea -- And, exactly how many Skeeta The Clown postacrds do you have stashed away Mae? Picture it: Summer, 1994. While calamine_tea and I are on a college tour of Virginia and the Carolinas with her folks, we find a postcard tucked away in a truck stop that reads "Hello from North Carolina" featuring a simple white background and a grinning clown holding a North Carolina pennant on a pencil. We laughed about it for hours and went on our merry way. A few years later, I found the same postcard while in NC, bought a stack of them, and have been sending them to her every couple of years since.

popespydie -- With christmas on it's way the networks have decided to sprinkle christmas shows during primetime starting this week. Why don't they just save them all until the week of christmas and play them all in a row?

Had this been a new phenomenon, I'd say it was the network's first line of defense against the effects of the writer's strike, but since we've been enduring four weeks of dredge like A Full House Christmas Carol for years, it's hard to say.
2(15.4%)
The Networks do it to boost sales for the advertisers for the entire month, not just for one week. Nothing says "hey, let's go to the mall tonight" or "I should pick up Season 1 of Heroes on DVD" like It's a Kid 'n' Play Holiday.
4(30.8%)
In fairness to some of the less...critically acclaimed holiday specials. With some time between them, even a special like Yu-gi-oh Yuletide can seem as top-notch as Hanukkah with Harry and the Hendersons.
3(23.1%)
They say a live frog will sit on a frying pan until he's cooked if you slowly turn up the heat over time, but if you dropped a live frog on a 400° skillet, he'd jump right off. Think about it.

subbes -- What color is Thursday?

Green.
2(15.4%)
He was wearing a yellow tie. It must be Thursday.
2(15.4%)
Wooden.
5(38.5%)
A little lighter than Wednesday but a shade darker than Friday.

renob423 -- can you turn into water? is someone pissin in my sink? are there clones out there? why are the bones weaker? what are you doing with all the printer cartridges? what best powertool slasher flick? (i had a whole 2 weeks to come up with stupid questions)

Of course you can. Say you're my cousin and you pass out on the cement around the pool and turn over in your sleep and fall in and drown and break everyone in the family's heart because you had so much potential to do such a boneheaded thing.
0(0.0%)
Nobody's pissing in your sink. It may look and sound like there is, but that's just water coming out of the faucet. Unlike piss, you can wash your hands and brush your teeth with it, so it's okay.
1(7.7%)
Yes.
8(61.5%)
Is this clones/bones thing a two-parter? What bones are weaker? Chicken bones? Clone bones? For real, if you want to start having decent answers, your questions have to at least make sense.

eideteker -- Why are you naked?

Get the hell out of my office.
4(30.8%)
I figure I'm being more true to myself, more honest, more open...naked, if you will. Maybe you should take a page from this and be a little less clothed yourself.
0(0.0%)
I'm not just naked, I'm totally nude.
3(23.1%)
I'm not like, held down by your societal constrictions, man. I don't have to do what everybody else does just because that's what you think is "normal".

friendship7 -- Taking into account that a minimum of human interaction is desired, where can I find the strongest cup of coffee outside of my house?

The vending machine in the Jiffy Lube waiting room.
3(25.0%)
The deli on vermont Ave with the bitchy cashier girl who doesn't speak, just rings up your order and glares at you until you pay her.
1(8.3%)
If only CVS sold coffee. I have to believe they have a company policy against hiring human beings. Damned if I've ever seen one working there.
2(16.7%)
Gas stations and truck stops on major interstates. Nobody is considered a "local" there, the business model is to get you in and get you out. Always pay in cash, no chit-chat.
6(50.0%)

Best result of the Hollywood Writers strike:

Seeing how helpless those vacant talking heads like those twats on The View are without someone to tell them what to say.
5(38.5%)
With no new shows coming out, I have time to catch up on all the movies shows on DVD I've been meaning to watch.
2(15.4%)
Watching the networks cringe now that they finally realize their outdated system of programming and advertising is.
4(30.8%)
The Amazing Race came on earlier than scheduled (same if you're a fan of Big Brother).
2(15.4%)

Worst result of the Hollywood Writers strike:

Shows like Lost, 24, Heroes, et. al. being postponed to late 2008 or 2009, or even risking their return at all.
5(38.5%)
Trying to feel sympathetic to a group of people who make $200,000 a year on average fucking up our entertainment over principle and a small amount of money.
2(15.4%)
Having to suspend your disbelief that "Ladies Week" is a theme they're doing on purpose and not just packaging up old reruns.
2(15.4%)
Providing the networks, entertainment magazines and critics a decent excuse as to why TV sucks so hard.
