2(40.0%)
Are we talking about ice cream? I like ice cream.
1(20.0%)
Soft sounds easier and I'm not really up for making big decisions today.
2(40.0%)
Whichever one doesn't result in me getting bonked over the head.

renob423 -- i just told a bunch of little brats that live around my apartment, that don't speak english, to quit throwing their ball at my window. does this officially make me "that fucking asshole who yelled at us" to these kids?

No more than the time I recently complimented some high school kid's shelltoes made me that lady who's like her mom's age trying to be cool or something.
0(0.0%)
Yes. And the next thing they throw at your window will likely leave some sort of stain.
1(20.0%)
Not only that, you're that fucking asshole who doesn't understand they don't have anywhere else to play because they get in trouble when they ride their Razrs in the hallway and their parents said they had to go outside.
3(60.0%)
You'll also get treated to a staredown whenever you park your car so you can wonder whether or not they have the guts to do anything to it, and if so, will it be that bad.

renob423 -- why aren't any adults watching them?

If they're like the kids across the hall from my old apartment who used to kick their soccer ball against my door, it's because mom and dad are at work and grandma fell asleep in front of the TV.
1(20.0%)
Because there's so many eyes and ears around the apartment building, that if something happens, someone will be there to help them. But not discipline them of course. Anyone who tries to tell me how to raise my kids is going to get their ass sued off.
1(20.0%)
Because their parent's little angels would never do something that bothered other people.
1(20.0%)
As if having their parents there watching them throw balls at your window would make any difference.

I may have brought this up before, but one of the blogs I read the other day was making fun of some typo in a news headline and referenced the "Moops". She then felt it was necessary to link to a YouTube of the bit.

Give your readers some credit. If you don't know a reference that common, you don't deserve a link. And if you have to watch the link to understand the joke, it's probably not going to be that funny to you.
1(20.0%)
Link it. The more the merrier. Plus, that's funny and I'd like to watch it again.

There's a sticker plastered on the sides of the buses in DC that says "Why Travel Any Other Way". The question mark is suspiciously absent. Why travel any other way? Check all that apply:

I like to get to where I'm going without adding upwards of an hour of extra waiting time

This week, there was a power outage at work. My boss, who's out at a meeting, called to find out why his email wasn't working and I told him the situation. He asked me when the power would come back on. While I said I didn't know, I would rather have said:

Lemme go check my crystal ball.
1(20.0%)
As soon as I figure out which of the wires I disconnected did the trick.
2(40.0%)
After the fifth person asks me when it's going to be back on or if you've given the okay to go home.
0(0.0%)
The president of Virginia Power is holding on the other line so I could answer this call. If you hold on a second, I'll switch back to him so he can tell me. He knows that you want to know more than anybody else on earth.
