twicketface -- Snowball fights - overrated or underrated?
Overrated. I've never been able to stay in one for more than a few minutes. Even if I'm not getting hit, my gloves are all soaked from making the snowballs and it's cold out there and it sucks.
Underrated. Few things short of foam-bat therapy can release tension as effectively yet harmlessly than a snowball fight.
Fights? In my experience, somebody throws a snowball, nobody's into it, and then he's the dick of the day.
I have a shitty email to forward to you.
verymandy -- I relax with Friday Polls.
I relax with Vicodin.
This, like many other reader-submitted questions, is not a question. It's a text box, people. Not a soapbox.
Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
pooplord -- Other than dry skin, can you think of any reason why my legs are so itchy in winter?
Just because you're wearing long pants doesn't mean you aren't allowed to shave your legs once in a while.
eideteker -- Do they know it's Christmastime at all?
If they aren't going to be getting a haul of toys and candy, maybe it's better they don't.
Oh they know. They know, and they love it.
They'll say whatever will keep Bono making a fool of himself on TV.
If by "they" you mean all those PC Zombies who've been trained to chant "Happy Holidays" on command, I'm guessing they don't.
funboytim -- What's the deal with gay cowboys and pudding?
It's a metaphor on the most basic and sophomoric level that's being ironically aggrandized in the name of inteligent film.
The West, like a Snak Pak, is a treat that must be savored before it is carelessly thrown away. But like the plastic cup of the Snak Pak, the memory of the West will live on forever. I'm not sure about the gay cowboys part though.
The paradox of pudding is a lot like a gay cowboy: take milk, heat it until it boils, and then cool it again. The beginning and the end products seem smiliar, but the heat in the middle has altered the structre entirely.
Pudding, like gay cowboy love, is perishable. It only can last on the range if it's given the proper care, tenderness, and refrigeration.
clockwatcher -- What's the first thing I should do when I get to DC next week?
Stand on the left side of the escalator.
Wander around in front of the White House and talk about how the Capitol Building doesn't look like how you thought it would.
Talk real loud on the Metro about how crowded it is and how you can't understand how anyone would go through this hell every day.
Find yourself an on ramp for 495, pull up right to the merge triangle thing, park in one of the moving traffic lanes and throw on your blinker.
absolutcalm -- Why did black people create Kwanza? Is it ONLY to further confuse the white man?
Do you really think white people pay enough attention to Kwanzaa to be confused by it?
Black people didn't invent Kwanzaa, Hallmark did. They had to think of something to do with their Mahogany line.
It was a failed attempt at scoring extra vacation days. If the Jews can have like eleven days off every September, can't black folks have off the week between Christmas and New Years? Nobody really works then anyway...
Black people can't resist buying gaudy crap--but Christmas decorations have always been either too waspy or white-trashy. With Kwanzaa, black people finally have tacky decorations they can call their own.
bobwhite -- What's worse, a surprise two hour meeting that you lead, or being anally raped by a mountain gorilla?
A surprise two hour meeting that you lead
Being anally raped by a mountain gorilla
if you're leading the meeting, how was it a surprise to you?
chaoticgoodnik -- Jefferson wrote "It is in Pennsylvania that the two characters seem to meet and blend, and form a people free from the extremes both of vice and virtue." Discuss.
There's a reason why they call it Pennsyltucky.
All those "Blue Ball: Someplace between Intercourse and Virginville" T-shirts are starting to make sense.
Pennsylvania is the place of origin for both Iron City and Yeungling. Extremes of vice and virtue, indeed.
Pennsylvania was the middleground between the Northern and Southern states of Jefferson's time. Like Craig Kilborn once said, "where the rampant industrialism of the North meets the casual racism of the South."
calamine_tea -- lighter or matches?
Lighter. Steadfast and reliable.
Matches. Transitory, disposable. And there's nothing like that first drag with the sulfur burst mixed in.
htothem -- Why am I in such a pissy mood?
Have you not shaved your legs in a while either?
ao -- It is a failure that you allow people to repeatedly ask how many questions they get and what they can do with them. Those people should be removed from the gene pool. How best to remove them?
I find it more of a genepool removal offense to suggest that I have failed.
It's about time we had a Friday Poll rivalry. Well done.
Again. Text box, not soapbox.
turkishturki -- What is the deal with gay cowboys and pudding?
I mean...there's cows...that make milk...but what is the deal with cowboys and the pudding?
WHO WAS THE AD GENIUS BEHIND THIS ONE?
They should call them puddboys!
Dude, pudding is delicious. Everyone loves it. Gay cowboys are human. They have blood in their veins. They love pudding as much as the rest of us.
friendship7 -- Why is Dave & Buster's so expensive?
Yuppies will pay any price to relive their Dig Dug high-scoring days.
If kids could get drunk at Chuck E. Cheese, it would be more expensive too.
Think about the overhead. Games are enormous anymore. Then you've got pool tables and shit...their costs must be astronomical, and therefore must be passed directly onto you.
We were all so well conditioned as children to beg money from our parents to play video games, that when we're at Dave & Busters, it doesn't feel like our own money and we spend it more freely.
demoninmyskull -- When I do get World of Warcraft what do you think will happen to my social life?
Depends. Horde or Alliance?
Side effects of World of Warcraft include: weight gain, decreased libido, and increased use of the word "goblin"
You're considering playiing World of Warcraft, so your social life can't really get much worse now, can it?
It's social...demented and sad, but social.
soarjubs -- Who would win if an Aquabear fought a Landshark on the beach? (And none of this 'what species' crap you biology fags)
A Caspian Aquabear, sure. But a Savannah Landshark? Forget it.
renob423 -- who shot JFK?
Lee Harvey Oswald
subbes -- Where the hell did my Sharpie go?
It fell behind your desk.
Probably in the pen cup somewhere.
When did you last use it?
Check your purse.
Favorite Modern Christmas Movie:
A Christmas Story
The Nightmare Before Christmas
And finally, with 2 days to go: On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being "I'm offended by this Christocentric question" and 10 being "giddy with magical glee", how Christmassy are you feeling *this* week?
