eideteker -- If I love the Friday Poll so much, why can't I marry it?
Hold the phone, pal. There's enough hubub over who can marry whom these days. Let's take this one step at a time.
The Poll isn't really the commitment type. It has so much love for everybody that it wouldn't be happy tying itself down.
I guess you could, but think about the ceremony...yeah, awkward.
The Poll is there for you every week, just like you are there for it. Do you really need some piece of paper from the government to validate your love for one another?
observacious -- Is it wrong that anymore I only log into LJ for the Friday Poll?
Sounds like somebody needs to make better use of their RSS Feeds.
Sometimes I feel like the old ponytail guy at the bar, but I just can't bring myself to get on Facebook. MySpace was so goddamn stupid that even though everybody tells me Facebook is better, I'm too burned to trust it.
As long as you don't stop anytime soon. Pollketeers like you keep this little dream alive.
Wrong? Perhaps for the greater LJ population who are suffering the absence of your insights and comments. A huge compliment to me and the rest of us who play every week? Definately.
twicketface -- Hire movers or pester friends to help?
If the total number of children involved (both the moving and the friend's) X the number of rooms in the place being moved into is greater than 5, hire movers.
If the number of times you have helped the friends move + the number of times the friends have helped you move / the years since either of you have participated in one or the other's move is greater than 2, hire movers.
If your annual household income / the square footage of the place being moved out of is greater than 50, hire movers.
If your age in years is greater than 30, hire movers.
haveyaseenlucky -- This year's alrington county fair theme is "The Magic of Arlington" What will next year's be?
Arlington: the Land of a Dozen Alphabets.
Enchantment A Few Feet Above Sea Level.
¡No hay apartamento demasiado pequeño para su familia grande!

pooplord -- Punny names for pets: funny or lame? Example: Chairman Meow.
In case you weren't sure, the correct answer here is "Funny". How about these awesome Punny Pet Names brought to you by Google?
Johann Sebastian Bark.
Oinko von Pigsmark.
absolutcalm -- I only just learned about "Twilight" last night at work, and apparently ITS A BIG FUCKING DEAL-- if you're a teenager. What other BFDs are out there that I don't know about, so I feel old as fuck? Shit, like I know. ONTD is all over Twilight. I always skipped over the posts because I didn't know what it was about, then I saw the trailer at the movies.
I'm sure we're all aware of it, but does anyone understand High School Musical? Seriously, wtf is it? Like Saved By The Bell with songs?
Jonas Brothers? What?
The Cheetah Girls, or something. And why the hell are all these things coming from Disney?
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be watching Gossip Girl because it's good or because I sometimes read things meant for teenagers.
segue -- Can one pool really change the world, or just bring it together for 16 days?
If all the people who came down with a rapidly mutating, highly contagious, flesh-consuming disease had all been in the same pool at once, it probably would change the world.
Zsa Zsa Gabor has to die someday. If odds like that aren't enough to unite the world in one pool, I don't know what could.
Imagine a 16-Day Global Kegger. Everybody's got to pitch in if it's going to work at all.
Ask any ten year old boy, and they would tell you that if they were to have a pool in their backyard, the world would be forever changed.
renob423 -- do you know how much fuckin noise yall day ppl make? how would you feel if i mowed my lawn blasted my shitty music or hammered something at 4am? some of us need to sleep so we can be up making sure the world keeps turning during the wee hours of the morn! Three of the statements below about my neighbors living in the apartment across the hall are true. You choose which one is false.
The daughter, who appears to be about seven or eight now, screams, shrieks or squeals constantly. Whether she's chasing her brothers down the hall, excited about what's on television, or who knows what else, it's at her highest pitch and volume.
A guy who may or may not live with them knocks on the door for upwards of 10 minutes at a time, straight. Constant knocking. He'll stop to go out for a smoke, and do it again. This can go on for hours. It doesn't occur to him they may not be home.
Since it's an apartment building, there's not a whole lot of space for the boys to play soccer, especially when it's raining. So they do what any child would do: kick the ball against the wall between the hallway and my apartment.
When not ignoring the knocking guy, the door is usually propped open (they've got to ventilate the hideous smells they've created in their kitchen) which is excellent when combined with the recent debates on money and what to do with Grandma.
So I went to get breakfast yesterday at the cafe in my building (Cosi). They do this deal in the morning where if you get a bagel and a coffee, it's cheaper. So I got the bagel and a large iced coffee. They rang the things up separately, and I said I wanted the combo deal. They told me iced coffee doesn't count as coffee for the combo because it's more expensive. I said it was the same stuff, but quickly realized there was no winning in this situation, so I just paid it. How do they justify charging more for a cold cup of yesterday's coffee than a hot cup of today's coffee?
You're paying for the time and overhead it took to store the coffee overnight.
What do you think, ice just comes out of nowhere?
It's to encourage you to buy the drink that comes in the biodegradable paper cup instead of the evil plastic cup.
It's for the service: if I bought the small-coffee's worth of hot coffee that I just paid for and poured it into a cup of ice myself, it would turn into a watery, not-iced mess.
Okay, Seth Rogen. To look at the guy, I would think he's like 30 - 33. He's freaking 26. Evan and I recently started watching Freaks & Geeks (thanks to the urging of haveyaseenlucky) and he was 17 in that. And he looks EXACTLY THE SAME as he does now. What's the secret?
It's all the pot.
He's a vampire that sucks the THC out of other stoners' blood.
And because I can't help but passing it along, "Monkey Uses Frog as Sex Toy" (you can figure out whether or not it's safe for your workplace based on the title)
