Why another one?

Because I felt left out.

Isn't there enough of these all ready?

Apparently not.

What is the average monthly rain fall of the Amazon basion?
Title: Re: Stargoat's The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth, so help me FSM
Post by: Stargoat on October 02, 2012, 12:45:48 pm
Effectively 0.  Amazons do not allow themselves to be scalped and have rain to fall on their skulls.

What is at the centre of the Earth?

Where is Donald Duck?

What is over there<

What is over there>

What is up there^

What is down below this?

Too many questions yet?

Or too few?

if a wood chuck could chuck wood what is the price of cheese on the former planet Pluto?

Tomato Ketchup or Tomato Sauce?

What is the forgoten condiment?

Post by: Stargoat on October 04, 2012, 02:45:58 pm
A iron?nickel alloy, perhaps nearly as hot as the surface of Sol.  How cool is that?  Is it what is responsible for the magnetic fields?  Science is awesome.

Not anywhere near me.  That duck is annoyingly hard to kill.

The Atlantic Ocean.

The Mississippi River.

At the moment?  Hmmm.  Geese I expect.

The Mississippi drainage basin (though just barely).

Nope.

I'm doing OK.

At this moment, futures contracts for cheese on the former planet of Pluto are trading for effectively zero.  The spot market is somewhat on the sparse side.

The forgotten condiment is edible lube.

Do you realise you have missed out on of the questions there?

Post by: Stargoat on October 05, 2012, 07:09:51 am
I do now.  And to answer the missed question:  Tomato ketchup belongs nowhere near a hotdog.  Tomato sauce is useful mainly for pizzas and some curries.  So I'll go with tomato sauce.

My favorite flavor of chewing gum is Topps cardboard.

I said off because twalker asked if the thread even.  I replied, no, the thread was odd.  I think we can all agree on that.

I did not anticipate any questions to be asked at all.  Mostly, I wanted to belong to the community, so I made a thread similar to other peoples'.

Likely in someone's ear.  I cannot say for certain.

Do you in fact just fast forward the show to the end while your better half is not there?

what is your reaction to Ghostbusters?

No.  The shows are usually formulaic enough that it's easy to guess.

When I was about three, I thought it was rather scary.

Are you the brain specialist?

what is the air speed velocity of a heavily ladden plumber?

what is the air speed velocity of a verticaly plummiting African Swallow with a coconut tied underneath it?

Does the plumber migrate to Spain in the Summer?

Post by: Stargoat on October 12, 2012, 12:39:43 pm
Q: Are you the brain specialist?
A: I am neither the brain specialist nor a brain specialist.

Q: what is the air speed velocity of a heavily ladden plumber?
A: 0.  plumbers are always lightly ladden.

Q: what is the air speed velocity of a verticaly plummiting African Swallow with a coconut tied underneath it?
A: Depends on the gravity of the planet the swallow is on and the length of the cord from the coconut to the swallow.  On Earth with a short tether, I estimate roughly 120 miles an hour or comically fast.  Whichever is more amusing.

Q: Does the plumber migrate to Spain in the Summer?
A: Depends on the local government of the plumber's wintering ground.  For example, anarcho-syndicalist communes are typically very poorly run and therefore have low emigration rates.

Q: If we abuse it will we loose it?
A: No, we will develop a resistance.  It will be necessary for new and more exciting experiences such as injecting heroin into balls.

Q: is it safe to dance?
A: Only if we bounce around like medieval jackasses.

Q: and if your friends don't dance?
A: Then we can only hope they are good in the sack.

Q: favorite color?
A: Blue

Q: book?
A: Difficult choice.  Either Persuasion, Moby Dick, or Life on the Mississippi.

Q: author?
A: Hmm.  I suppose it depends on my mood.  At this exact moment, Neil Gaiman.

Q: if poozle have noodles for breakfast how high can the sailboat fly?
A: According to urban dictionary, a poozle is something naughty indeed.  So I'm going to have to say - "Sailboats do not fly, but failboats will fly as high as is necessary to get the job done."

Let's see how you answer the following  ;D

Is England the European nation that nurtured, developed, and ultimately adopted the fundamental principles of the Enlightenment, or was England the nation in Europe that was left out, particularly as evidenced by the failure of the 1848 revolutions to penetrate deeply into English culture?

impressed with my answer to your last history question?

Not as impressed as your choice of Shaw's motorcycle.  Including the relatively small scale Spanish Revolution to my list of WWI, WWII, and the Spanish Influenza (is that what you call it in the UK?) is a decidedly Eurocentric approach.  It ignores the fall of the Qing Dynasty and the rise of the Chinese Communist Party, the Armenian Genocide, the Russian Revolution(s), etc that were far more destructive in terms of the loss of human life.  I include early Japanese invasions of China as a part of WWII, as the Chinese sensibly include that.

Let's see how you answer the following  ;D

Is England the European nation that nurtured, developed, and ultimately adopted the fundamental principles of the Enlightenment, or was England the nation in Europe that was left out, particularly as evidenced by the failure of the 1848 revolutions to penetrate deeply into English culture?

England is an odd case.  It's a highly stratified society, one that never had the revolutionary expulsion of lordship leadership as we saw in most other major European countries.  Further, the role of the state church in England would also seem to be anti-Enlightenment.  There are strong signs that even today, this stratification harms English society.  For an example in the news today we need only examine the anti-working class sentiment that caused so much pain at Hillsborough.

That being said, it was the Royal Navy that in so many ways defined modern professionalism and the creation of the middle class - in addition to saving the world from tyranny.  This is a contradiction even of itself, because the middle class as referenced above does not include the lower deck, a place of brutality, squalor, and in some times and places out and out slavery.  (ie Spithead and the Nore)  If we feel like being cynical, we could state that the enlightenment in England never got much further than the sitting room at more well-to-do homes.  Putting that aside, the wooden walls served England well in more than one way.

The lack of revolutions in England should be seen for what they really mean: England was country that did not need a revolution to achieve enlightenment ideals.  Institutions like the Royal Society, the Royal Navy, the Methodist Church, and the many many clubs of England served the function of a barricades in the streets in other countries - including to a lesser extent the United States (on both barricades and institutions).

I hope not.

I am for all puddings, except for boiled babies and pudding pops. Yorkshire is a particular favorite.

I am for Valentine's Day, in so far as it promotes inappropriate and immodest behavior, but especially garters and suspenders.

MBA classes until 10:00 PM, followed by work the next day.  Friday night should be fun though.  Perhaps certain people could send photographs of their own Valentine Day's proclivities to relieve my distress.
