htothem -- Does Omaha have any redeeming qualities?
popespydie -- What is with the 6 month delay from the bbc shows in Britain and the US? (it's not like they need to translate)
Sometimes I wish they would.
The anglophile fanboys need enough time to create a demand for this awesome show that's cooler than anything on TV because it's British.
They have to wait long enough to decide whether to simply air the show for Americans or to make an American version of it.
For authenticity's sake, they ship the DVSs over on replicas of the grand ocean liners of the early 20th century. They usually get caught up in customs, then there's the whole region conversion issue...it's a disaster.
observacious -- Dance Dance Party Party: fun cardio workout, lame social experiment, or secret lesbian orgy? Man, you guys open my world up to the craziest shit.
Fun Cardio Workout: It's the fun of dancing without the rules of aerobics.
Lame Social Experiment: Let's see what happens when otherwise socially adjusted women decide to dance together in the middle of the day under fluorescent lights without alcohol. Do they feel free and liberated or ugly and unwanted?
Secret Lesbian Orgy: They're the only women who really want to dance with other women. Straight dance with other women to see how much attention they get from the nearby men comparatively.
twicketface -- What's preventing the creation of Spaceballs II?
The universal lack of John Candy.
They don't make sequels to Mel Brooks movies, they make musicals, which are turned back into movies based on the musical that was based on the movie. Seriously, how long do you think it will be before History of the World, Pt. Musical?
The prequels were already laughably stupid. Even Mel Brooks couldn't parody material that bad.
Ever since Lone Star got elected president, he lost his edgy smuggler appeal.
absolutcalm -- As the creator of debate, I contest that, while not always whiny, its ALWAYS been uninformed flame-trolls, misuse of logical fallacies and calling to friend's lists for back up. He did say real or imagined By the way, why the hell does anyone post there anymore? I don't.
For the same reason anyone argues on the internet: to prove they're superior to all the other unwashed morons sitting at home on a Saturday night testing the limits of Godwin's Law.
Because they really, really, really, really, really believe someone gives a shit about what they think.
Shattering the foundation of your opponents' arguments by pointing out how stupid/heartless/bigoted/etc. the opponent themself is, in the Rock/Paper/Scissors of online discussion, good ol' rock: nothing beats that!
Got a head full of ideas but no time to research them? Come on down to debate
! No discussion, no matter how absurd or baseless, will go unchallenged. Like making posts that get lots of comments? This is the community for you!
coldblackncold -- On the real, what is the deal with the pumpkins?
Still no clue. The followup Kim Gordon question makes me wonder if it has to do with the Smashing Pumpkins, but I doubt it.
They start becoming popular every year around September, peak in late October, and then dwindle out thorough the end of the year. They're good for baking, make snazzy decorations, or can be hollowed out and carved into a "Jack-o-Lantern".
He just made it up to see how long he could get us to think about something dumb he made up. He doesn't know either.
's middle school, they called all the slutty girls "pumpkins". Granted, it was middle school, so that was pretty much any girl that had big boobs, whether she ever even touched a boy or not, but still. Slut = Pumpkin.
Does anybody know what the hell the pumpkin business is all about?
26giraffes -- There's that book called "Everyone Poops". What else does everyone do?
Everyone Lies When Asked If Now Was A Good Time To Call.
Everyone Hopes They Were The First One To Try On These Shoes.
Everyone Checks Out Their Pores When They're Alone In A Mirrored Elevator.
Everyone Thinks All The Other Cars On The Road Are Driven By Idiots.
renob423 -- why does anyone give 2 shits about halo? we need another halo like we need another WWII fps. in fact why does anyone give 2 shits about fps in general, these games have not changed at all since doom. why waste all this new technology on a fucking fps?
Because everyone, everywhere would love nothing more than to pump off a shottie in some alien's face. This is as close as we're ever going to get. Even if aliens ever landed and started a war. Office pussies like us wouldn't last a second.
FPSes are the same, RPGs are the same...with the exception of Katamari, the Sims, and most games on the Wii, there hasn't been a game made since Doom that wasn't just a variation on a pre-existing theme.
Pfft. As IF. There's plenty more forgotten battles of WWII to make FPS games out of!
eideteker -- Why did livejournal eat my poll answers this week?
It knew, like most of the choices you make in your life, that you were picking the wrong answers.
You actually have to click on the little circle until the black dot shows up. Clicking in the general vicinity of the answer you want isn't going to cut it.
Uh, huhuhuhuhuh. Livejournal ate your pole.
The other day, soarjubs showed me this link where some clearly defeated music reviewer compares the recent releases of Soulja Boy and Bruce Springsteen. It's a good read in and of itself, but the real fun is in the comments section, where it has sparked a curious debate. Most of the comments are awesome, but which is the most awesome comment:
...uh really? compairing those two is like compairing stilletos and tennis shoes...ultimately they're shoes but are also functionally incompatible...so to compare Bruce and his anticipated record sales to Souljah Boy is woopid...
the reason u probley not herd of Souljia Boy is because u a lame. You must be white because everyone else heard it but u??? U a lame and [profane] everybody else who got something bad to say about Souljia Boy cause ya'll some lames.
SouljaBoy PWNS Bruce wht ever her name is......GO AND BY 3 COPIES OF SOULJA BOYS CD!

As I begin a regimen of Airborne to combat what I suspect is an oncoming cold, I want to make sure all of you know the power of the 'Borne. This shit works. Contrary to popular belief, it's not just for preventing colds, it also works during the cold to shorten it and speed recovery time. Recently, I asked for cleaning product recommendations; got any recommendations like this one to make?
