This Friday's Poll comin'atcha live from my unnecessarily awesome hotel room (but notably less awesome free "high speed" internet connection) in Coronado, CA. Attempts to resist California time adjustment proving moderately successful: am not quite 7:30 groggy, but am not really 10:32 chipper.
coldblackncold -- Rick James vs. The Juggernaut
friendship7 -- Are rejects and tools like ballers and rappers?
If wishes and buts were clusters of nuts, we'd all have a bowl of granola!
Rejects and tools exist, no matter the subculture. While some ballers and rappers are rejects and tools, not all rejects and tools are ballers and rappers.
In a word-association sense: one rejects bubblegum wrappers, and a baller sounds like it could be a tool.
Anyone who has ever seen a hip-hop video knows the answer to this one. Lookin' at you, Diddy.
eideteker -- What is a Richard hatch?
The place Dharma REALLY doesn't want you to find.
A 12-minute celebrity.
A fantatsic name for a gay bar.
ao -- Are sweat shops really that bad? Little Timmy..err..Chang would be out dirty and naked in the streets instead of behind a sewing machine anyway.
It's 12 more cents a day than they'd be making otherwise.
The real crime would be letting those keen eyes and nimble fingers lie idle.
If 14-hour days and slave wages were good enough for my great-grandmother, they're good enough for Timmy Chang.
And seriously, what does a little naked Asian boy need with Nikes? *I* need Nikes. He doesn't know shoes from Shinola.
absolutcalm -- I just learned that June 1st is the official beginning of "Hurricane Season;" what's the starting dates for some other non-seasonal seasons?
May 25: Toe Season (interestingly enough, May 15 also marks the official beginning of Intern Season in DC).
February 15: Peeps Season.
October 1: Layering Season.
January 19: Empty Gym Season (otherwise known as the Offical Ending of New Years Resolutioneer Season).
observacious -- When I'm in a department store and finally see something I like, why does it always turn out to be a "Petite” size? (Sorry, if I offend the short girls, but they’re the bane of my shopping experience.)
Fuck that. Why is it whenever I finally see something I like it's a Medium? Who the fuck wears Medium?
Shit like this is why I can't shop at places like Ross or Marshalls.
I'm SORRY we didn't get all of our inconvenient short clothes out of there before you decided to go shopping, Your Tallness.
My mom used to use the phrase "my eyes are bigger than my stomach" - maybe your tastes are taller than your clothes.
soarjubs -- What if you could turn your hand into a spider?
I'd always be able to find a seat on the bus.
The ol' spider-on-the-shoulder move would be a whole lot funnier.
I'd totally have like six fingers.
subbes -- What's the best way to resign?
Charge into the boss' office, slam your post-it resignation letter down on his desk blotter, pump both fists victoriously in the air, give him the fingerguns, spin on your heel and never look back.
Using words cut out from the newspaper, fax in a demand for your back vacation pay.
Remove all personal effects from your desk and disappear. Do not return phone calls, emails, or any other attempts at communication.
Sit your boss down and break up with him, using every "it's not you it's me" line you've ever heard, in both real life and fiction.
twicketface -- Will COPS ever lose its viewership?
As long as there are cans of High Life and lonely Saturday nights, there will always be COPS viewers.
As long as places like hospitals and Jiffy Lube waiting rooms keep putting their TVs on those brackets from the ceiling out channel-changing reach, there will always be COPS viewers.
As long as there are rambling drunks in suburban Dayton determined to wander around without pants, there will always be COPS viewers.
As long as there are Floridians with more tattoos than teeth, there will be COPS viewers.
renob423 -- when you google search your name, do you find another person with that name?
Nope. You wouldn't believe it, but I'm in the Peace Corps, a crew star at Dartmouth, and a teacher in Illinios.
Unless your name is Flabibor Mahasiabolmy, you're probably going to.
I only ever look for other people when Googling my name.
Take the quotes off. That should fix it.
At hotels, do you take extra little shampoo bottles and stuff?
Only if there's something really awesome or unusual, like mouthwash or fantastic moisturizer.
On the last day I take the new ones that I hadn't opened yet.
Every day the new shampoos in the room go straight into my suitcase.
Sometimes I even raid the maid cart while nobody's looking.
