renob423 -- (inspired by this week's abundance of fart questions) where were you the last time you let out what you THOUGHT was a fart, but was actually a very wet dump? and what did you do to cover your tracks afterward? did someone bust you shitting yourself?
Sounds like a question from Buddy Cole.
No, for god's sake no that has never happened. How does that even happen? Who shits themselves? And from the way your question is phrased, who shits themselves regularly?
Seriously I don't even know how to start giving "yes" answers to this. If I could think of some wacky scenarios for this to happen I would but what?
Sparky says this is a guy-specific question and you should not reveal this to women. I'm stunned. Is this your karmic payback for never accidentally finding blood stains on your pants?
absolutcalm -- 300 just came out and there's all this bullshit about political context-- Pick some random awesome 80s movies and come up with their inappropriate political subtexts.
What people don't notice about Overboard is how it glorifies the white sex slave trade. Once you think about how the movie shows a rich blonde woman fall off a boat and suddenly is living in a pigsty with her captor, you’ll never watch it the same way.
If you think about it, Look Who's Talking is just an anti-abortion fable. Seconds after conception, and even in the first trimester, the fetus is portrayed as having thoughts, emotions, and a personality.
If the Death Tax isn't eliminated soon, people are going to start taking extreme measures to get around it. Just like Weekend at Bernie's.
With the rich Beckersteads [Israel] thinking they can take her family's land with "documents", Cassandra and Hoops fought back by throwing a rock concert, similar to Palestinian Freedom Fighters throwing stones in Gaza.
clockwatcher -- Has anyone else ever skipped answering the friday questions because they could not come up with a suitable question?
If I did that, I'd never answer the poll at all.
I am comfortable in the knowledge that I cannot come up with suitable questions and will merrily continue answering yet not asking.
They can't all be home runs, and sometimes the weakest questions turn out great. Don't be shy.
I've never thought that. My questions rule.
eideteker -- What's the least prestigious world record?
Most Action-Oriented PowerPoint Presentation.
Most Consecutive TLC Remodeling Program Marathon Viewing Hours.
World's Smallest Pancake.
World's Largest Collection of Bed Bath & Beyond Coupons.
subbes -- Who poured beer on my weave?
If I find out who did, I'm going to tell her something about her bitch ass.
I'm guessing either Deelishis or Buckeey.
I ain't got no weave. This shit is natural.
soarjubs -- Ken or Ryu?While this is similar to the recent Favorite Streetfighter 2 characters question, it is a crucial statistic to capture.
friendship7 -- I went to a wedding this weekend that was missing all of the following features: speeches, toasts, sit down dinner, music, tables at the reception, decorations on the getaway car, alcohol, and fun. Tell me where and how the "rehearsal dinner" was.
In the McDonalds bathroom hunched over a dripping pregnancy test.
Behind the 7-11 baked out of your gourd.
Scanning the crowd at the International Arrivals terminal confused and concerned.
In a stark white room with no furniture listening to a child playing the same note for different lengths on a plastic flute.
observacious -- As someone who is not the least bit Irish, should I avoid wearing green on St. Patrick's Day in order to not be a poser or should I wear lots of green to make up for my inferior (that is, comparatively sober) ancestry?
I don't think wearing green on Saturday is going to make up for your inferior ancestry, but it's a start.
Irishness is just an excuse. St. Patrick’s Day is just about food coloring and binge drinking. Wear all the green you want.
At least you admit you're not Irish. Most of the people who claim to be Irish on St. Patrick’s Day are about as "Irish" as most southerners are "an eighth Cherokee". Who's the real poser here?
March 17 is the day the Irish get the upper hand. It's the one day a year we're celebrated for our negative stereotypes and the rest of the world wants to be like us for a change. Quit trying to glom on our holiday.

Given the bear of a week I had last week and how I'll be spending Wednesday - Sunday working probably 16 hour days, tell me a thing or two about your jobs. At your job, does the "we always did it this way so that's how we know this is the only way that will work" theory of shooting down new ideas prevail?
No. My work is quite receptive to new ideas.
Depends on the person in charge of the process in question is. Some refuse to change anything, others are open to new things.
I always figured it was because I worked in Associations that the "the rules only apply to some people; other people get rules written for them as they go, and this group over here doesn't have to adhere to rules" mentality of asskissing and gladhanding was so rampant. What about your job?
I don't really deal with anyone whose ass needs kissing so I don't know.
We have to keep a spreadsheet of what the bigwigs have promised to whom to make sure we don't suggest to the wrong person that they have to do what the rest of the plebes do.
Rules are rules and processes are processes. Either do them or don't.
You have a major work event coming up that everyone has known about for the better part of a year or longer. The deadline for all preparations for this work event is Close of Business Thursday. When is most of the preparation work for this deadline done?
Throughout the year, things are done as they can be done, sure some more attention is paid to it in that last week, but everything is ready by Thursday if not before.
Three weeks after the deadline, questions of when the preparation work is due by start arising.
Saturday was St. Patrick's Day. I:
Went to an Irish Bar because that's where all the fun and excitement is on St. Patrick’s Day.
Avoided Irish Bars at all costs. Having been foolish enough to try things like this before (NYE at Times Square, 4th of July on the National Mall, etc) the standing room only/1 bartender to 100 customers thing doesn't appeal to me.
