Coin toss

You toss a coin up in the air and catch it in one hand.

Do you look at it in that hand?

Or do you catch it and slap it on to the other hand?

Or do you just let it fall and look at it on the ground?

(My answer: I toss the coin up in the air and lose track of it until it bounces off my forehead. But if I manage to catch it, I slap it onto the other hand. And disregard the results if I don't like them since the coin usually gets turned over in the transfer.)

On one's info page, at the end of the livejournal option bar (that allows you to add that person as a friend or select the post as a memory), there's an icon with a magnifying glass that will search the journal for you. I've tried the function, and it always seems to link me over to other people's journals with the results, so I'm guessing that it also scans that person's friends list too.

Do any of you know how to adequately use this livejournal tool?

i bought an old book for one of my friends yesterday. it's printed in such a way that the text is only in the middle of the page, i.e. the margins are a couple of inches, so the text area is about the size of a playing card. when did they print books like this?

(there's no date or edition number in the book, that page seems to be missing)

With recent goings on in the news here in the UK, with Holly and Jessica also with Michael Jackson coming over to the UK to promote his album (Note, I am not saying Michael Jackson is an active pedophile), I thought I'd ask somewhat topical questions, be it an old question...

Should Sarah’s law be passed? Will there ever be a time when it can be passed? Is there an effective alternative? What did you think of the mob attacks on known active pedophiles after Sarah's case? Have these cases changed the way in which you educate your children on the dangers of straingers?
Do you think Michael Jackson should be allowed in the UK? Do you think that forbidding him from the UK is overkill?

Let's say you're playing the game show "Pyramid." (Yeah, I know, bear with me...) The topic comes up "Things you don't want to play chicken with." What clues do you give?

Let me start you off:
1. Trains
2. Parked cars

Your turn.

Do you rip open the wrapping paper on presents? Or take your time and carefully open it? I rip em open, cuz I'm impatient...If you take your time opening it, why? Do you save the wrapping paper or bows for later? Doesn't it all go in the trash the same way?

What's a hemi?

So there's that truck commercial where the dad hold's his son up to the engine and says, "Can you say hemi?"

The commercial never explains what that is. The commercial is obviously for a demographic that isn't me. Thank goodness since I have no desire for such a truck.

However I am curious... what the hell is a "hemi" as far as cars and trucks go?
