friendship7 -- How did Thomas Friedman get published? I have been shamefully lax in my newsfollowing this past year or so, and being my last day at my dicklick job and all, I'm not going to spend it researching and forming an opinion on this fellow. Butterbean vs. George 'The Animal' Steele.
George 'The Animal' Steele.
observacious -- Would you see a play called "My Mom's Meat Purse"?
As long as it's not my own mom.
Meh. Saw the movie.
eideteker -- Why does it seem like there are fewer questions this week? What can we do to vouchsafe the prosperity of our beloved weekly poll?
The open-ended question terrifies most. We must rely on the strength of the willingly creative to carry on.
Quality, man. Not quantity.
If certain people didn't squander their questions every week, we'd be just fine.
New blood is necessary! Alert...um, some community that does LJ Reviews!
ao -- Today's question is In honor of your brother seeking gainful employment instead of painful employment - Since my bosses are getting me a temp, what should I have that person do? What is it with you people and office slaves
Load the company website's meta tags with dirty words.
Lower everyone's chairs by 1" while they're at lunch.
Have him grind your CC rep to exalted.
Instruct him to casually mention how excellent a job you are doing under the pressure of assuming another your former co-worker's responsibilities and how you really deserve at least a 9% raise because of it.
veejay -- Will the time and creative energy Mej will likely devote to her new job negatively affect the quality of the Friday Poll answers?
I'll just have to personal stuff on personal time. At least for the first few months.
The Man will not keep the Friday Poll down.
Quality, man. Not quantity.
TWOFER! absolutcalm -- What is the geekiest star wars reference you could possibly slip into casual conversation and not be stared at and ridiculed? The ridicule-free references that the average nongeek might get version:
"These aren't the [thing] you're looking for."
Referring to someone as "Jabba."
Suggesting someone has come over to the Dark Side.
Likening someone to a Wookie.
absolutcalm -- What is the geekiest star wars reference you could possibly slip into casual conversation and not be stared at and ridiculed? The references you could drop without the average nongeek understanding or likely noticing version:
"[Place]. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."
Referring to someone as a "Moff."
Suggesting someone has a high midi-chlorian count.
Likening someone to a Twi'lek.
twicketface -- Why is printer ink so goddamn expenseive and difficult to find the right one at the store?
Items distributed in hypodermic needles are often goddamned expensive.
Like the Chris Rock Cheap Gun/Expensive Bullet theory, hippies have somehow made toner unnecessarily expensive in an attempt to diminish paper waste.
It's an elaborate ploy to keep Kinkos in business.
You CLEARLY aren't getting the same spams I am.
renob423 -- will the enxt evolution of humans be through video tape?
Sometimes I wonder if you have a bingo roller full of words that you use to make up your questions.
In four hundred years, our eyes will have adapted so that we can watch VHS tapes without the aid of VCRs.
If that's the case, the next evolution of humans is going to somehow involve dance recitals and graduations and whatnot.
I don't think so. I would have evolved into an Oompa Loompa years ago.
coldblackncold -- __________ is totally bananas!
That adorable Gwen Stefani
This produce aisle
soarjubs -- A ghost + A dracula = A ghost dracula? (ghost blood?)
Dude, give it up. Ghosts don't bleed.
I don't think a ghost and a dracula could procreate.
Not only would ghost draculas keep regular ghosts away from my house but eventually there's be more ghost draculas to get rid of the regular ghosts.
Somebody better start up a Ghostdraculabusters team stat.
Not only is this my last day at this job, but I have worked in this neighborhood since April of 2001. Which of the following crazy bums will I miss the most?
The young ripped black guy with the do-rag and the headphones who yells about Jesus.
The big Santa-Claus looking sweatpants-wearing one who scares me.
The wheelchair guy who threw a cigarette at me that one time.
