pooplord -- Apparently the Utah government has been doing the 4-day (still 40-hour) workweek for a year or so now and 85% of people adore it. Pros and cons of the entire US moving to this system?
Pro: going out on a Thursday night would not result in a wasted Friday morning. Con: going out on Wednesday night doesn't seem close enough to the weekend to warrant going out and wasting Thursday morning.
Pro: Federal holidays that fall on a Monday will mean a 4-day weekend. Con: Federal holidays that fall on Fridays will likely be ignored.
Pro: it's not any less time in the week, it's just reorganized so you'll have just as much time to waste as before. Uh...Con: all that time you would be wasting work on Friday could be spent at home or out doing things you enjoy.
Pro: the added day off would spread out the crowds making it easier to run errands all three days. Con: many of the places you need to run errands at (Post Office, Doctor) would likely assume the schedule too.
htothem -- I recently discovered what a juggalo is. Are you down with the clown?
Ugh. This is real? This can't be real. This looks like a gang from an 80's movie that's got a rumble with the rollerskating girls.
The reason only two jurisdictions consider them a "gang" is because no other cops believe they could convince the public to be scared of these losers, and if they did, it might make people less scared of actual gang members.
Dear Juggalos: when people say they're scared of clowns, it's because they think that creepyass clown is going to rape them or turn into something other than a clown and kill them. It's not the clown part itself that musters up fear.
"If this music touches you, and you get some positive experience from it, we would be honored to have you consider yourself a Juggalo" "A Juggalo is a frame of mind & what not. " It's like being a hippie: poor grooming, bad style, & a state of mind.
absolutcalm -- I haven't done a question in a while. Are all the poll questions this dada-esque lately-- and who is to blame?
The question-submitters. Come on, guys. We all know shitty questions make for a shitty poll. Take this one, for instance.
Me. The longer I tolerate the nonsense, the longer it will go on.
eideteker -- What does the Internet's ability for us to despoil ourselves on twist endings (Orphan, Perfect Getaway) mean for the future of movies?
Funny how the internet can spoil the plot of movies, but when the internet tells us that GI Joe is going to eat balls by the handful, people still go see it and are surprised that they didn't like it. Spoiler! It's gonna suck!
I have no idea what the spoiler is for those movies. From what I can tell, one is about Wednesday Addams and the other is like The Beach. To keep us unspoiled, Hollywood needs to keep squeezing out uninteresting turds we can't be bothered with.
If they're smart, lots more spoiler fakeouts, ala Hermione Dies. But they're not (e.g. G-Force).
So THAT's why movies have been such formulaic uninteresting, creativity-free tripe lately! They're afraid to put in interesting twists because we might get spoiled!
renob423 -- how does anyone actually enjoy coffee? it has to be an aquired taste because even "good" coffee tastes like dirt to me. what other beverages are aquired tastes? (jack danials has got to be one i've never had "good" whiskey in my life)
Whiskey. I'm convinced anybody who says they like whiskey/scotch/burbon only says so because they think they're a hardass for being able to choke it down.
John Hughes died. Very sad, and thank you for putting Simple Minds in my head for what will probably be days. You've seen poll after poll asking what your favorite/the best of his movies were. But the man had his hand in a few steamers as well. Worst John Hughes Movie (that you probably didn't know was a John Hughes Movie):
Work has been talking about how we can increase our presence on WEBTWOPOINTOH and how to effectively use it as a professional networking tool. I said in the meeting that if I needed to use Facebook or some other application for work stuff, I'd make a separate account to interact with work people (other than the work-friends that I can make blowjob jokes with). They all thought I was insane. Pollketeers, if your job decided that you needed to start "networking" on Facebook for professional means, would you make a new account to separate your personal and professional profiles?
