sonicblue -- Internet -- justify its existence
eideteker -- "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" or "They times, they are a-changin'"?
I should think the question is now more appropriate as "Tommy" or "The Times, They Are A-Changin'".
Sometimes it's better to go with the evil you know than roll the dice on new bullshit.
Tell me Dylan had a mod pillfreak phase and maybe my vote will swing.
You see, it's often when we think our lives are the most dynamic that they are the most stagnant. It seems like times are a-changin', but it's the same old boss.
friendship7 -- What's the scariest grocery-made food product? (sushi, egg salad sandwich, chili, etc)
That weird Imitation Seafood Salad stuff.
Jello with canned fruit inside. Who wants that with their salad bar?
If 7-11 counts, those Taquito roll things.
Sushi. Except Harris Teeter. Theirs is actually pretty damn good.
renob423 -- can alligators that get flushed down a toilet really survive in a city sewer?
If a 400-lb alligator can survive being flushed through a 5" diameter hole, he can survive anything.
They can survive down there. I don't know if you'd call it living, though.
Of course not. They're Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Christ.
They'll survive in the sewer, but once that pipe hits the open ocean, it's way too deep for them.
ao -- Why does veal taste so good?
What you're tasting is the sweet sweet essence of unnecessary cruelty.
Given last week's Dirty Animal/Tasty Meat theorem, It only makes sense that an animal that wallows around in its own sweat and shits on itself would be delicious.
Because everything that pisses off hippies is extra delightful. The whole meat part is just a bonus.
Marsala. Or butter and mushrooms.
veejay -- How many non-smokers have been driven to smoking by those smug self-satisfying Truth* commercials?
I dunno about smoking, but they sure make me want to wax my lip, pick my nose, and fart in cars.
Probably not as many as all the smoking bans. Kids love nothing more than bucking the establishment.
Ever since that voice box country singer one, nonsmokers are skipping the smoking and going straight for the tracheotomy.
I can picture it now: Astor Place. Looping jumbo screens showing all the commercials. Some hipster with a bullhorn: "Every year, thousands of ad-weary viewers take up smoking. That's one new smoker for each airing."
thedrandmr -- I schlepped 6 blocked only newly surgicized leg to vote for Jim Webb. What kind of thank you gift should he give me?
Based on the quality typeos in this question, more of those painkillers you spent last week with.
Some brand spanking new roads in the greater Lexington area.
A mug that says "Like I needed another vote in NoVa. Next time limp your crippled ass to Culpeper”.
What he promised all Virginians: A soda machine in the cafeteria.
subbes -- Why do we humans pile dirty dishes in the kitchen sink rather than putting them in the empty dishwasher?
I'd rather not call people who do that "human".
Because "someone else" will put them in the dishwasher.
They have to soak. Yes, even the plastic cup you had a drink of water out of.
Dammit this question has got me thinking about ice cube trays
. It's the same assholes, people!
absolutcalm -- Why has it taken me this long (25 years) to realize that Coffee is fucking Awesome?
Because Christmas is the only time Starbucks is worth a damn, with the Peppermint Latte and all. It's just a coincidence you discovered coffee after 25 years.
You're on your own now, working and paying your own bills. Times aren't so lush that you can turn your nose up on the free caffeine source in the breakroom.
It's taken you 15 years to realize that sometimes the reason why everybody does something isn't because they're sheep, it's because they're in on it.
The mere pittance of caffeine from soda used to cut it. But you're not as young as you used to be.
coldblackncold -- What do you hear when you play the new "Cat Stevens" album backwards?
The new Ted Nugent album.
Something that might be worth listening to.
That's a good question. If we listen to something so outdated and irrelevant backwards, would we hear the future of music?
Cat Stevens is a musician? Who knew.
Last minute submission from soarjubs -- What is the best time of the year to plant a Frantibulon Doomblossom? Why?
October. It will germinate in the dead of winter, absorbing the misery and the cold, blooming just in time to spread malaise across your garden in the spring.
January. The Earthen soil is most similar to the terrain on Frantibulon when it's frozen.
Have you gone insane? Why would you want to plant Frantibulon Doomblossoms? They're the snakehead fish of the flower world. You'll be the death of us all!
Since Frantibulon Doomblossoms only can take seed in a suspension of sand, topsoil, gravel, sugar, and mouse droppings at a constant temperature of 51 degrees Fahrenheit, they must be planted indoors. Time of year is irrelevant.
This or That: NHL Player or Pokémon!
