Why did I make the thread DISappear?
But smooth as horseradish.
Something either will or won't happen.
·Monday - Red, cos it's the generally the first monolexemic term a culture and it's language will develop after having only terms for 'dark' and 'light'. That and it's the first one in the list of rainbow colours.
·Tuesday - Orange, cos that's second one in the list of rainbow colours.
·Wednesday - Yellow, cos that's third one in the list of rainbow colours.
·Thursday - Green, cos that's fourth one in the list of rainbow colours.
·Friday - Blue, cos that's fifth one in the list of rainbow colours.
·Saturday - Purple, cos that's sixth one in the list of rainbow colours.
Sunday - Brown, cos Indigo and violet are just kinds of purple, if we're being honest. And after Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green, language generally develops a term to describe Brown before Orange, Purple and Pink (of which the former two have already been used - bad luck Pink, but you're just a whitey-red, aren't you?).
^No emotion. Only a system, and thus order. And Harry Hill says - 'you've gotta have a system'.
Indigo is a kind of blue.
That noise. THAT NOISE
I have actually spent a lot of my life telling people things were dark blue when they have argued with me that the things are in fact purple. I love the colour purple though, when it is a real purple. Am I more sensitive to changes between the blue and violet part of the spectrum? (That's one of your AMA questions btw)
Do you like carrots? They have no real effect on vision sensitivity... but they used to be purple. You can still get them from fancy suppliers, I think.
And also yellow ones. Coloured carrots = good. Carrots in general, I do like them, but there are better vegetables.
When I had a test at the optician's I came out with technically better than 20/20 vision. So maybe I just have super power vision or something idk. Anyway I'm still right about indigo
Mix and Match your perfect fast food meal deal

Yes I will go large, thank you.
You're a man of great self-control
Can I have a Pizza Hut Ice cream factory pls?
Failing that, mint choc chip ice cream. Or failing that, anything without raisins, sultanas or currants in will do.
The ice cream factory is fucking great
You can get a cola from anywhere.
But not my AMA thread, so I shan't intrude, unless I just did.
Cola for me, Tango for you. Can I have a taste? I might want that next time.
knock yourself out.
describe it in great detail please.
Great detail hath already been written: http://craftytrekky.blogspot.com/2010/12/mr-crafty-his-terrible-glove-problem.html
( They're called POW!s because of http://craftytrekky.blogspot.com/2009/11/super-action-hero-fingerless-mittens.html )
to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them?
I'm not in the least bit concerned that you skipped my question and answered others below. Your not the only person it has forced to procrastinate. You don't really want to know what happened to the last guy who couldn't decide, though.
And then again a little bit the morning after.
Give or take a few quid.
what would it be and why?
Too obvious? My car? Too obvious?
Laptop, then. Cos MsWza uses the good laptop we bought together for creative and productive stuff to do with her course. I use the netbook I bought myself and use it to waste time on the internet. I've almost convinced myself that if I had a bigger/better laptop that I'd be more creatively productive.
And if he had the Wu on his side, whish DiSers would you pick to back you up and why?
·RZA v theShipment, obv. I ain't going into battle v the Wu without that fella.
·Method Man v Method_Mandrill (close battle)
·Raekwon v sean (head chef play-off)
·Ghostface Killah v kik (it'd k-k-k-k-kick off)
·Inspectah Deck v Old_Anonymous_Comments (questions v silence)
·U-God v You (obv.)
·Masta Killa v foppyish (not on the front line, but it's not the same without 'em)
·ODB v OTP (imagine)
Really genuinely sad this can never happen.
If we picked St Cronin
He can square up v Cappadonna
what would you call it?
Not sure why.
I'm either making love or getting it on.
I only had a fraction of this amount to answer last night :(
call West Dunbartonshire Building Standards about heat loss calculations etc, and call Kingspan about heat loss calculations etc.
I do like the idea of being a woman for a bit. They're an enigma.
But who? Tough one. Kim Deal? Can't think of anyone cooler.
If I went for someone like Maggie G, Katie Puckrick, Kirsten Dunst or whoever then I'd never get anything done.
But there not proper dinosaurs, so I'll say Triceratops cos they look pretty damn fearsome, yet they were just mere herbivores.
which could be bought out on cold/cloudy days to cheer everyone up?
Please arrange for it to happen.
People forget that traders need access to Dixons! Though they do say it'll help people in wheelchairs.
I don't do enough work, mofo.
Only due to news reporting though. The public was rooting for Alien:
but i cant remember it
can anyone remind me of it?
I think the context is like a letter to somebody maybe. And it starts
WHERE DO YOU GET OFF
I've heard the line used as an exclamation a few times. Not sure of any specifics. Good line though.
It was all quiet for a while.
But we're jumped-up indie-pricks, becoming ever more self-absorbed, looking for validation, so it's more of a thing now. :-/
who would it be?
n.b the space time continuum would be fine
I'm not big on the details of history...
Obvious ones are obvious.
Maybe the leaders of the Conquistadors when they were sacking the Americas. I'd love to know what the Incas and Aztecs could have cooked up if they hadn't been wiped out.
Cromwell? Did the outstanding hard work of ousting the monarchy, but got drunk on power and suppressing stuff and we ended up back where we started. Have I got that right?
But if the space time continuum would be fine, what's the point?
I was 'clean' back then.
It seemed that way, anyhoo.
Marilyninthesky asked you if you could be a woman for a day who would you be, you didnt answer that........but I notice that your profile pic is looking good......it is very convincing....is that you?
Or alternatively just answer Maz's question......
or answer which diser you would like to befor a day (or anyone)
oh marilyn, and your disregard for thread logic... i'll get to it.
(my profile pic is defo looking good, but it isn't me, it's maggie gyllenhaal)
which diser would i be? difficult. i'm tempted to plump for one of the rapscallions. but i imma go for you instead. from what i can tell, you like a similar type of lady so i've a feeling your mind wouldn't feel too uncomfortable.
Least: wES (it confuses me)
(a good pun subthread is always a beauty to behold though)
Probably not. So I'll go for the original Nasty Nick - Nick Cotton. He was so awful to Dot who, even years and years ago (when I last saw an episode of 'stenders) was a placid old soul who didn't deserve one jot of his hassle.
Muzik magazine or Jockey Slut?
By an long, long shot.
Also RIP: Smash Hits*, 90 Minutes, Select, Sleaze and The Face. I read thee avidly as a keen, but stranded, Lincolnshire young-un.
*Got quite excited the other day cos I thought Smash Hits had been relaunched. Alas, it was a Gaga one-off. It was the old blocky logo though wot got the pulse racing.
Ok, which magazine do you prefer? Razzle or Club International?
And it Reminds me of the dog in Jonny Briggs, so that.
Club International's a ridiculous name for a magazine.
It was gonna have a list of things underneath it but after it posted like that by accident I decided I preferred it that way. Your answer does not disappoint, well done
Have you ever tried to balance that beam?
I've always imagined that they'll never be quite as soft as they seem.
I'm the face that you have to face, mirrored in your stare.
I'm what's left, I'm what's right, I'm the enemy.
I'm the hand that will take you down, bring you to your knees.
So who are you? Yeah, who are you?
Well... seeing as you've got the same surname, you must be my cousin. And my first name is even sillier when you look at the broader picture. The first and last letters of my first and middle names match up with the first and last letters of my sisters' first and middle names. Surnames match, too, obviously. Twee nomenclature from my parentage, huh?
I've reminded you that we have usernames for a reason. Just because I'm paranoid, don't mean they're not after me.
For Who deceives me once, God forgive him; if twice, God forgive him; but if thrice, God forgive him, but not me, because I could not beware.
What is your preferred type of writing implement (pencil, felt tip, biro, etc)? Be brand-specific if possible.
#1: Parker Sonnet stainless steel ball-point pen w/ black ink.
A bit like (but not quite exactly) this:
Got an engraved one from my folks when I graduated, bless 'em.
Lovely pen. Sturdy, with no frills.
#2: Bic biro 4-colour.
Like this: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2415884043
But not quite enough love to join that fb group. Also: yellow barelled Bic fine biros & Crystal barelled Bic normal biros.
#3: Crayola wax crayon: Shocking Pink.
Honourable mention: Stabilo Boss original highlighters.
I like your choice of crayon. +10 points
I'm assuming there's no second hand.
^The closest equivalent I could get to this:
Streetfighter is also acceptable
But I don't really play Tekken, so I'll opt for Streetfighter. I started out with Blanka and Chun Li, but soon started opting for Ken.
interesting choice, although for me it's usually Paul Phoenix, Kazuya or Nina Williams.
Streetfighter wise, usually Ryu simply because in the earlier games he usually was the easier character at stalling/frustrate people by just hitting them with a barrage of hadouken's followed by shoryuken when they tried to leap over the top...good times.
Fender or Gibson?
Island discography pick: Wu-Tang Clan (including solo albums) or SFA?
Have you taken dancing lessons?
What's your dream car?
What do you collect (besides CDs)?
If you could take all the time you have spent Dising and apply it to something else, what would it be?
Which 3 DiSers would you sucker punch in the face if you could do it without them ever knowing it was you?
-Fender, cos I learnt a little bit on a cheapo pointy-headed Hondo Strat when I was younger.
-I like 'em both, and much as I like 'em to pieces, I'm not actually that massive a Wu-Tang superfan (in comparison to many out there - the username just seemed like a good idea at the time.) But even though I'm a fan of SFA it'd be the Wu, for sure.
-I went to a salsa class thing for a while.
-#1: E Type Jag. #2: Mini cooper. #3: Lotus Elise.
-Don't really collect anything else.
-Learn some 3DSMax/Sketchup/Solidworks/etc & sleep.
-Sucker punches? Not my style.
Good call on Wu, Fender and the Jag.
Check out this sucker punch at about 1:15 http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=9079845155332174375# and then replay at about 2:00. What a little bitch huh?
Sports brawls? 'Little bitch'?
<swingers>I'll make Gretsky bleed, the little bitch.</swingers>
