Say that Arnold murders his best friend, Bill. Arnold confesses his crime to the police and is arrested, etc. After doing some grieving, Bill's family decides that they forgive Arnold, and that they do not want him to have to spend the rest of his life in prison. Assuming that the prosecutor/judge have the ability/authority to set sentences as they see fit and are not technically obligated to go with Life in prison, even for murder...do you think that in such a case, assuming Arnold has no prior record, that they should follow the wishes of the victim's family? Or should they still insist on giving Arnold a life sentence?

Do you have any real life friends/acquaintances who scoff at the idea of online friends? I want to send a little care package to my friend across the country, whom I've never met in real life, because she is going through a rough time. I met her through an online game we both played and now we're Facebook friends.

One of my real-life acquaintances thinks this is weird. Do you?

What do you use in the bath/shower to get all the dead skin and crap off your arms and the like?

How angry do you get when you can't pass someone that's going 5 under the speed limit?

Why do you think it hurts when gas builds up in your intestines?

When buying a used car, what is most important to you to look for? (e.g., mileage, color, etc.)

Did you see the new MAC advertisement? With the female bodybuilder? Is she hot, or super hot?

Did you know Mc Donald's uses robots for their fries and drinks?! What do you think they'll replace human labor with robots for next?

Have you ever bumped a parked car and not left a note? Was there any damage?

You order a burger at a fast food joint without lettuce/tomatoes/something easily taken off. You are not allergic. Do you take it off yourself, or get it remade?

Are you allergic to anything? Have you ever had someone challenge your allergy? What happened?

[music |Frank Zappa - Call Any Vegetable]

If you live with any companion animals, what are their names? Where did their names come from?

I live with five cats, and a rabbit. From oldest to youngest, the cats are named Arlo (after the singer Arlo Guthrie), Juliana Catfield (after alternative rock icon Juliana Hatfield), Victoria Jolene (the first name was chosen out of the air, but the middle name is after the Dolly Parton song), Adina (after the song by Rancid), and Roland (after Roland Deschain, the main character in Stephen King's The Dark Tower). The rabbit is named Strawberry after the character from Watership Down.

Creep moment of a lifetime: I happened to be walking to my front door as the pizza man was knocking so I answered the door 2 seconds after he knocked. He said, "Man, I wish everyone opened the door that quickly." It's like I was standing at the door waiting on him. I gave him a $7 tip on an $9 order in hopes he will never speak of it again.

What was your last "perfect timing" moment? Or creep moment?

I want to sell my stuff [Jan. 6th, 2013|06:07 pm]
The Question Club


I am going to have a moving sale at the end of this month.

What is the best advertising plan? I plan to run an ad in the paper (for the whole week, or is that overkill?) and put up signs pointing people down our street. Anywhere else I should put up flyers to draw people in?

I have a ton of bigger ticket items and I'm not sure how to price them. I am selling a king bed frame w/ mattresses, couches, table&chairs, coffee tables, dryer, etc.. Any tips on the big ticket items?

I have decided to part with a significant portion of my book collection (I donated about 150 books already but I still have ridiculous amounts of books to move). My books are all clean and in good condition and almost all are known writers and books. How much should I charge for a hardcover? A paperback?

I am bad with pricing. :/

Any other tips on having a successful sale?

ETA: We're too far from the nearest CL location to make that prudent.

Did you read any of the Bill Peet books as a child, or have you read them to your own children? If so, which one's your favorite?

(I pulled a stack of half a dozen out of the library this afternoon on a whim and have been having a merry old nostalgia fest, but I adore Cowardly Clyde, Chester the Worldly Pig and The Whingdingdilly)

Alternate question: do you typically watch more movies or read more books in a given year?

Say that your child (real or hypothetical) attends a public school. It's teacher starts using religious themed stickers like this as rewards for a good job on homework, tests, etc. According to your child, the teacher does not otherwise say/do/teach anything overtly religious in the classroom. Would you do/say anything about the stickers?

I think it might simply be that I've had the bad luck to have had some especially nosy, pushy teachers (and other female adult authority figures) during my childhood and adolescence, but:

Did you ever have a teacher or other adult authority figure who just could not accept that not all children want or need to be friends with all the other children in the group?  Do you recall having the usual sorts of conflicts with other kids, but once this adult got involved there was pressure on you and the other kid to not only resolve whatever issue you two had, but to become genuine BFFs as well?  

dk/dc/what: Stephen Fry needs to go on the Colbert Report, y/y?

I saw this gravity/physics based computer game at the library ages ago and can't find it now. Basically you've got a ball and you have to run it through obstacles to level up. Sometimes you can turn off gravity. It was 2D and 'atmospheric'. Does anyone have any idea what it could be? Or any similar games?

How much do you like your job? (if you have one, that is)
What jobs, if any, would you rather have?
If you don't absolutely love your job, what keeps you there?

I'm rather in the dumps about my current job, if you can't tell. Although I am definitely happy to have one.
