blipadouzi: Dad in the Spotlight July 23rd - 27th

Recommended Posts

Wow man.  Four week family reunions and visits.  That is crazy, but sounds like a lot of fun and really gets a good chance to meet with family members.  Been to a lot of places.  I would love to visit the wilderness up in Canada too.  Gotta be majestic.  Well, if you ever make it to Louisiana in your future trip endeavors be sure to look me up.  :2thumbs

Friday!!! Time for Questions!

 

* You're a Jack-of-all-trades, but can you make a good cup of coffee? Explain your methods.

 

I make an awesome cup of coffee, I almost opened a coffee shop once, but I was missing funds.

 

1) I keep the beans in the freezer if they were bought more than 3 days ago

 

2) ground the beans until they are the consistency of cinnamon

 

3). Put 1 tablespoon of ground beans per 2 cup of water in the filter

 

4) regardless how many cups of coffee you want to drink, make a full pot (so if you only want 2 cups of coffee but your machine makes 12 cups, then make 12 cups... You're technically only wasting the extra water)

 

5). Most coffee pots boil the water perfectly, so it's just a matter of waiting till its finished the cycle

 

6). The *INSTANT* the cycle is over, empty the filter to prevent oils from dripping into the pot and spoiling the brew

 

* If you could be given ANOTHER talent or ability, what would you want it to be?

 

This is a tough question actually, because anything I cannot do, is usually because I don't want to.

 

But to give an answer...

Realistically, handiwork

Fantasy, the ability to transform into any animal I choose

 

* Why does grape flavor smell the way it is when actual grapes don't taste or smell anything like it?

 

It's grape concentrate that gives off the commercial grape smell. Buy a bunch of grapes, mash the in a blender, then pass the whole thing in a strainer.

 

Does it smell the same now?

 

* How would you build a space station that would attract aliens?

 

I make a gigantic Christmas tree with flashing lights the size of cars :P

 

* How much wood can a woodchuck chuck?

 

About 3 branches, equalling roughly 1.5 lbs in all.

 

* Why doesn't the armpit hair have split ends?

 

Because it falls out more frequently, and the oils from pit juice keep them fresh and tender lol

 

* You and your lady are going to watch a movie, what three types of movies would you choose?

 

Out of the 1,300++ movies we own, and the weekly marathons we have, that's impossible to answer.

 

A perfect example, we are having a Morgan Freeman marathon this weekend which will range from Comedy, Dramatic, Fantasy.

 

But if we are just chilling out, our most frequent genres are Fantasy, SciFi and Historical

 

* At a movie theater which arm rest is yours?

 

Both are mine :P

 

* Why is a birthday cake the only food you can blow on and spit on and everybody rushes to get a piece?

 

Because there is nothing better on Earth than cake. Mmmmmmmm caaaaake.

 

* Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

 

The tune itself was written by Mozart and as a result free of royalties being that it is so old.

 

The tune is also very suited for children's songs to help memorize limericks, poems and school lessons.

 

The tune is also used in the song 'Baa baa black sheep' and 'what a wonderful world', the latter made popular by Louis Armstrong

 

* What is your favorite word?

 

Tesseract

 

* What is your least favorite word?

 

Paraskavedekatriaphobia

 

* Do you scream on roller coasters?

 

In truth, I've been known to fall asleep on roller coasters... and I live 20 mins from Six Flags Montreal, so it's not for lack of trying.

 

I think the flights I took as a teen in a CF-18 and CF-104 took the thrill of coasters out of me.

 

* If today was your last day on Earth and tomorrow aliens were taking you away to travel through space, how would you spend your last day on earth?

 

Calling all my friends and family to say "I told you they existed!!!" lol

 

* If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

 

You've succeeded, as failing was your goal.

 

* If money doesn't grow on trees then why do banks have branches?

 

To hide the fact that they also have roots. :P

 

* What looks sexy on a woman or a man?

 

If I understand this correctly... What looks sexy on both a woman or a man??

 

A tie (as in a cravate)

 

* Have you ever gone cow-tipping?

 

Does my sister-in-law count?

 

* Have you ever posed as a nude model?

 

Not for an artist or anyone prossional. Just for a private photo session with my current wife.

 

* If you had to be an animal for one week, which animal would you choose to be? And what would you do?

 

I would be a Peregrine Falcon, and would fly from coast to coast discovering our magnificent continent.

 

* Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?

 

Of course, they are made from animals :P

 

My retort... If most vegetarians do not eat meat because it is cruel to butcher animals for food... why do they feed meat to the dogs they own?  What's the difference?

 

* What music do you listen to the most?

 

Country, Alternative and Soft Rock

 

* Why is Grape Nuts cereal called that, when it contains neither grapes, nor nuts?

 

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=grape+nut+cereal&l=1

 

" Post was a patient and later competitor of the 19th-century breakfast food innovator, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg. Despite its name, the cereal contains neither grapes nor nuts. The cereal is actually made from wheat and barley. Mr. Post believed that sucrose (which he called "grape sugar") formed during the baking process. This, combined with the nutty flavor of the cereal, is said to have inspired its name."

 

* It is more worthwhile and satisfying to improve the world or appreciate the world?

 

We cannot improve the world, only the population within in. The world has done fine on its own up until now, and humans are of this world and are just another aspect of the nature of this world. So I say just sit back and enjoy the ride. 

 

* Is it true cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

 

Must be the make-up and plastic noses lol

 

* Whats your favorite horror movie?

 

Saw... It's the only one I don't fall asleep on and/or laugh hysterically while watching.

 

* Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

 

Because round boxes cost more to manufacture.

 

* If work is so terrific, how come you get paid for it?

 

Because my family owns all my time... and they need to be compensated for renting me out.

 

* If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?

 

Purple

 

* Why are there no size "B" batteries?

 

B size batteries did exist once and were most common in tube transistor radios. As the tube radios became less popular, so did the B battery. No one ever thought to use them in other devices nor to reattribute the label to a new battery model.

 

Think you got enough questions there Kilgore? Damn :lmao2

 

Nope lol

 

1. if nothing sticks to teflon what makes th teflon stick to the pan?

 

Think of it like paint, sticky and adhesive when wet for application. Non-stick, hard and smooth when dry.

 

2. Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

 

Do you really think the bottle is 100% devoid of glue when you throw it out?

 

3. Is it wrong for a vegetarian to eat animal crackers?

 

Read my reply above :P

 

4. If people from Poland are called ""poles"" are people from Holland called ""holes?""

 

Nope, because Holland has 2 Ls rather than 1

LMAO

 

5. Can you cry under water?

 

By cry, I assume you mean shed tears and not actual crying, as you'd likely drown. Yes you can shed tears underwater, they just don't run down your face :P

 

6. Is there an abbreviation for the word abbreviation?

 

Yes, it is: abbv.

 

7. Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?

 

Because Megatron is building them a sky bridge to LA

 

8. Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

 

I eat hypothesis for breakfast and theory for lunch. So, no

 

9. How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work in the mornings?

 

The plow is parked in his garage... d'uh :P

 

10. Why is it that when you transport something by car, it is called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it is  called cargo?

 

That's actually people misusing words they don't understand. Cargo, is the item being transported, be it by aircraft, boat or land vehicle.

 

Shipment is the act of transporting cargo.

 

My turn, why do we park on the driveway and drive on the parkway?

 

11. If you throw a cat out a car window, does it become kitty litter?

 

Only if you're driving in Nevada (chose that state at random, no directed jokes intended)

 

12. What is another word for thesaurus?

 

Lexicon

 

13. Why is abbreviation such a long word?

 

Read above, there is an abbreviation for abbreviation.

 

14. What do they use to ship styrofoam?

 

In a box.

 

15. When sign makers go on strike, what do their signs say?

 

Seriously guys... Is this the best you can come up with?  No questions on getting to know me better, filling in stories I cut short, or details I obviously left out?

 

These are questions I answer on ask.com or Yahoo when I'm bored. I don't mind the occasional goofy question to make things funny, but I'm writing all this on my iPhone. I've been at it for 3 hrs now.

 

Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying this, and I'm having fun giving serious answers to your goofy questions lol... But I do this all day long at work.

 

Caller "I installed a Microsoft update and it told me to reboot... I cancelled out and now nothing works, what should I do?". SERIOUSLY?!?!

 

So since there is no tone of voice on here, I want to clarify that I'm not mad. But I am mentally drained.

 

16. Is it okay to shoot tourists during tourist season?

 

Only if you obtain a license.

 

17. Why can't we tickle ourselves?

 

Who says we can't?  I successfully tickle my feet.

 

18. Why does the word 'monosyllabic' have five syllables?

 

Because it has 5 sets of vowels.

 

19. Why do they call a building a buildingwhen it is alread built?

 

*sigh*

 

20. If seven-elevens are always open, why do they have locks on their doors?

 

They are automated security locks that activate when the silent alarm is tripped to trap any crooks inside while waiting for the police to arrive.

 

21. If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest have to drown, too?

 

Ha ha

 

22. If honesty is the best policy, then is dishonesty the second best policy?

 

If honesty and dishonesty were the only 2 options in the equation, then yes. Because dishonesty is the worst policy.

 

23. When a cow laughs, does milk come out of its nose?

 

Only if it drank some before hand.

 

24. If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how will anyone ever know?

 

That's how we ended up with British spelling vs USA spelling.

 

[glow=yellow,2,300]More Questions!:[/glow]

 

* Name two of your favorite coffee/expresso drinks.

 

French Vanilla coffee at Tim Hortons and a Quadruple Espresso at StarBucks.

 

Addition, if we expand that to include any hot drinks. Then Apple Cider, and White Hot Chocolate

 

* If you could safely take a ride in a barrel down Niagara Falls, would you?

 

*If* being the operative word... Yes. But there are no barrels that I could comfortably fit into lol.

 

* Back when you were baking muffins, did you ever think of a woman's "Muffin Tops"?

 

I was newly married to my pregnant wife when I worked there (first wife), so I'd definitely have to say yes.

 

And in all honesty, we don't have the thinnest clientele at bakeries :P

 

* Given a choice of 6" in height, converted 6 inch = 15.24 centimeters, would you be 6" taller or shorter than you are now?

 

I'm sorry, but I honestly don't understand the question.

 

* When you build your miniature city, will you be a miniature citizen in it?

 

I honestly never considered that. But I will add it to my outline as a "maybe"

 

Where would you live?

 

At the airport lol. I had not considered yet how I would be adding buildings to the maquette.

 

What job/role/function would have?

 

SR-71 Pilot :D
