This or That: Pro or Con

This one turned out much better than I expected. I was merely hoping for a flush, but I do believe it was a full house! Collapse )

Let's start with the lowest-scoring participant of the week. I guess even when you're flipping a coin you can get tails 11 out of 13 times. Congratulations, chaobell on your stellar 2/13!

Second place was a draw (ooh double pun) between segue and turkishturki with 10/13! In the game of This or That, these two fellas are a pair of Jacks.

First place also was a draw. Two gunslingers at high noon. They were here last week, making their debuts in the rankings pulling down second place showings. But this time it's for keeps. Sweat beads on their foreheads as they pray for that last magic bullet. Lady Luck aiode and the King of Hearts ccjohn take the pot with 11/13!

And now, since I seem only to be able to post polls these days:

Things I have learned about Japan based on the behavior of my neighbors:

  • The television sets in Japan have a calming influence on infants. Should your child be crying loudly, simply turn your television up so that it is louder than the baby's cries. This will soothe the baby into a calm quiet.

  • In Japan, doors are specially designed so that if the person you're trying to visit is not at home, knocking on the door constantly for 10 or more minutes will cause the desired party to be transported to the residence in order to accept the visitor.

    More facts to come as observation and research continues.
