Kyouya - Outside the Lines

Why are there roadsigns that say speed detection devices are being used? Isn't that pretty obvious? Is there somewhere in the country where they DON'T use speed detection devices?

Do they actually use planes when they have "speed checked by plane" signs? I can't say I've ever noticed a plane swooping around over roads checking the speed of cars.

EDIT: Is checking speed via plane just a US thing?

Does it annoy you when people make journal entries without any paragraph breaks?

Are you sick and tired of Christmas yet?

Are any of you NOT celebrating this year whatsoever?

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you'll go down in history!

What sort of names did the other reindeer call Rudolph?

"Rudolph the red-light district"
23(34.3%)
'dolph Hitler
12(17.9%)
"Sexybuns"

Why did Santa ask Rudolph to guide him?

His red nose can illuminate an extra 2' through the fog more than other reindeer
3(4.5%)
When flying almost blind through the fog, it's best to have the most expendable reindeer in front, in case you crash into a mountain, maybe the rest of the reindeer might stop in time
12(18.2%)
Rudolph, the emo reindeer, is a friendless loner and harboring deep, violent anger towards his fellow reindeer. Santa wanted to keep an eye on him in case he pulls out a gun
17(25.8%)
He was the only reindeer that wasn't nursing a hangover from the last reindeer game
24(36.4%)
Santa's fond of things that glow
10(15.2%)

How did the reindeer love him?

Like a brother
2(3.0%)
Like their new team captain
2(3.0%)
The 'Ribbed for his pleasure' way
23(34.8%)
In a stalkerish, obsessive fixation that nothing can deter, except prison or death
16(24.2%)
They loved him long time
23(34.8%)

What did they shout out with glee?

"Hurray! Rudolph's a jolly good fellow!"
3(4.5%)

Why will Rudolph go down in history?

For safely leading Santa's sleigh through a dense fog one year. It was a slow year and there wasn't much else to report that year
9(13.6%)
He's a deer that can fly. Duh

Do you find that Livejournal has ruined you for traditional message boards?

I do. It's hard to tell who is replying to who, and it bothers me that the posts move around when they've newly been posted to. All in all, the system just doesn't work for me anymore.

For as along as I can remember, I've always heard people say, "You know what they say about people who kiss with their eyes open," but I've never actually heard what people say about people that kiss with their eyes open.

So my question is, what do they say about people who kiss with their eyes open?
petit prince

this is actually a serious question

for those of you who pluralize with apostrophes, how do you decide when to use the apostrophe? i don't quite get how you can write a sentence like "my friends are taking their dog's out for a walk." why does it not click that you don't need an apostrophe on dogs when it did click that you don't need one on friends?

What is the absolute worst movie you've ever seen?

I lost 2 hours of my life that I will never get back watching Body Double last night, and I thought it was one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life. It was confusing, poorly acted, and the lead guy was awful and completely unattractive.

Also, who fucking kills someone with a weird oversized drill that PLUGS INTO THE WALL?

Christmas presents

Do you suppose the kids running their new RC cars up and down the alley outside my window have any idea how annoying it is?

Did you know that RC cars come with horns now? With a button on the remote handset? So they can blow the horns from over one hundred feet away, as long as they're in line of sight?

for those of you who've seen the Breakfast Club;

do you whistle along during that whistling part of the movie?

Edit: also...

I'm watching Breakfast Club via Comedy Central and they're bleeping the curse words out and one of the things they're doing is "ass*bleep*" vs asshole. what's the point? is it really any better to hear a little kid call you an "ass" instead of an "asshole"?

What's in a name?

Does someone's name make them more or less attractive to you (sight unseen, or not)? For instance: does someone with the name Larry or Dick give you a less attractive impression of the person physically, as opposed to someone named Rob or Josh? Does someone with the name Agnes or Edna give you a less attractive impression than a Christine or a Vicky?

Livejournal is wonderful and all that but I was wondering if there is a kind of program I could download from somewhere that will allow me to have a journal offline? Something like LiveJournal but just for myself.  I could use Word but I'd rather have something thats better suited to what I want

I'm sorry, I completley suck at explaining myself sometimes!! If you understand any of this and can help me out I would much appreciate it!!

Checkers ?s

When playing checkers do you like to make the first move?

Do you play with "flying kings" (where kings can move as far as they want in diagonals like a bishop in chess, but jumping over only a single, opposing piece in each jump)?

to go or not to go?

this year i was planning on going to my girlfriends family gathering for christmas.
we were then going to go to my family gathering straight afterwards.
last year she came to my family gathering, but i didn't go to hers (i wasn't invited and her family is more... uptight about strangers coming to gatherings than mine).

However, mum and dad got bad news a few days ago about my brother and so dad went to see him, meaning he may not be back for christmas. a lot of family members aren't coming for various reasons, so instead of the usual 20+ people, there will be mum, nan, my aunty and me and my gf when we come.

i feel kind of bad that mum will be at home on Christmas all by herself, preparing the meals etc by herself, so i was thinking i could go there in the morning to be there and help organise everything.
but then i would miss out on my gf's family christmas.

what do you think i should do?
go to my gf's family christmas and then rock up to mums, leaving her to prepare everything herself?
OR
go to mums and help out, leaving my girlfriend to go by herself to her family thing, yet still come to mine for the 2nd time when i haven't gone to hers?

Uno. Do you have bookshelves? Regardless, do you keep books elsewhere?

I'm trying to name my new kitten..

I need suggestions for my new kitten's name... she's black, plushy-coated, and very playful. I kinda want to name her after Eartha, my black cat that died last April (see the black cat in the icon), but I've never named any of my pets with duplicate names. She looks like the cat in this picture:



We're leaning towards Shideezhi, which is Navajo for  "younger sister"- since she'll be the youngest of our pets and I got her as a stray on the Navajo reservation. She's very cuddly and playful, and I'm loving having her company.

Other suggestions have been Yzma and Darcie. Any input?

I'm not really excited about giving any of them.

3. If you're making cookies for Christmas, what kind are you making?
I'm making cookies for Christmas Eve. I already made some sugar ones, and I have Mexican Wedding cookie dough chilling in the refirgerator.

Computer Question. HELP!

So I was deleting all my DVD files off the computer when I came across a folder with a huge ass name & an even huge-er text file contained within (which wasn't there a week ago). When I read the text file, I was all "huh?"

So can someone please tell me, what the fuck is it? The text in the file is talking about debuging shit, enabling cloaking & disabling shutdown.

Have you ever watched the show Assy McGee (WARNING: link probably NSFW unless cartoon asses are ok) on Adult Swim/Cartoon Network? What do you think of it?

Yes, and I think it is hilarious. The intro is so dead-on, just like an 80's cop show.

checks and laundry

1. When I got married, I didn't change my last name. My husband's family sent us checks for Christmas, but the one to me has my first name and my husband's last name. What should I do? Think I can deposit it?

2. How long do you have to go without doing laundry? And I mean by wearing clean clothes every day? I think I can go over two months -- the limiting factor is actually my socks. In terms of underwear and clothes I can go for much, much longer. Do I own too much clothing?

While on the subject of the holiday season

1.) Did you ever get nothing at all for Christmas/whatever holiday you celebrate?

2.) Whats an estimate of the least amount of Christmas/Holiday gifts you've ever gotten in one year? (i hope that made sense, im a bit tired)

3.) What would you do if you had a friend that complained because you got more stuff than she did, and complained about getting nothing this Christmas, even when you went out of your way to get her two or three somewhat expensive presents?

4.) Is there any non-confrontational way to stop a jealous friend from complaining/being jealous/bitching?
