Re: 20 Questions - Round 12

A man is not dead while his name is still spoken, some have said, although for the purposes of 20 questions this is not particularly helpful.

Has this man had his works converted into TV and/or film?

Re: It's gay to walk fast

I've heard that lots of unreliable gays are known to regularly engage in breathing, clearly suggesting that gayness is an airborne affliction. A follow-up study on the issue discovered that gay men who have refrained from breathing for over a week week rarely express interest in sexual activity or d...

Re: It's gay to walk fast

What Fluminator appears to have been observing is that, when approaching a group of reliable gays, they invariably move with remarkable speed in the opposite direction. I have no reason to doubt the accuracy of this observation, but suggest perhaps that there is value in adding various control group...

Unfortunately Mrs Oct is depressingly thin on the ground when it comes to other well known relatives, and I don't think Kieffer Moore's WAG would pass the dart test...

Was he a man of such impressive virtue and self control that he would often test himself by sleeping with beautiful naked young women so he could actively resist their temptation?

Re: 20 Questions - Game #8

Well, the core rules are that at least 50% of people must know of her, so moderately well-known... Not strictly true. The rule is that if you throw a dart out of the window at least 50% of the people you hit should know who they are. Now if you took a literal interpretation of this rule you could a...

Maybe we better stick to actual "human" humans to avoid any further confusion. Lots of difficult questions in this one.

Re: 20 Questions - Game #7

You kind of threw us off with the "human" answer there. In no way is Woody human. He's a toy that comes to life; he always maintains his separation from the real humans. In many ways Woody, much like Winnie the Pooh, is more human than any of us. I think you can fully justify his humanity artistica...

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

The land will become a paradise of peace with zero cruelty, much like you get in places like Mars. How do Americans feel about violenc...

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

All of that being true, mental health issues do not coorelated with acts of violence. You are not more or less likely to be a perpetrators of violence if you have mental health issues. You are, on the other hand, more likely to be a victim. So not only is it a red herring, which does nothing to hel...

Re: Revenge vs Draw

I am new to online Diplomacy, but not new to Diplomacy in general. I am currently in an anonymous game where 2 players stabbed me, one by going all-in against me, which left their rear totally exposed. Another power may solo due to bad tactics by a third player and the one player going all-in again...

Basically Mrs Oct's Great Gran was up the duff in Liverpool around the start of WWII. The Blitz happens and she's considered vulnerable and evacuated to a nearby village, which happened to be across the border in Wales. Baby is born, has "Wales" written on his birth certificate, and mother and child...

Kieffer is considerably more Chinese than he is Welsh, and considerably more English than he is Chinese. He only qualifies for Wales because (in the finest traditions of all internet conversations) because of the Nazis
