    I mispronounce things all the time, so I wouldn't say other people's unique pronunciations vex me. As long as nobody's an a-hole when you're trying to understand each other, everything's fine. Most of the time, mispronunciation can be humorous or adorable.

    Why veterinarians are more likely to survive the zombie apocalypse.

    Best reply I've ever heard to this is, "Do you hate birds and bats? Because you don't get to have many of those if you kill off all the mosquitos." I don't know how true that is, nor have I spent any thought on the value of that trade, but there it is.

    I find things to enjoy about all seasons. But it's probably just the romanticized versions of them as we really only have 1 season here.

    Getting to Know You, May 2018

    While there would be a strong temptation to visit various times and places in the past, I would choose to live maybe 200-ish years in the future. 1. If I find myself in an post-apocalyptic wasteland (and we assume it doesn't kill me) I can spend my week trying to figure out what happened and/or having the greatest Fallout LARP experience outside of visiting Russia. I come back with as much specific future knowledge as I can and maybe try to ward off the end of days. 2. If society isn't a smoking crater, but is instead 1984 set in 2284, then I return with a memorized a copy of the Idiots Guide to Our Glorious Regime, some invasive future tech thought-crime surveillance equipment, and a loose plan for regime change. Viva la pre-revolucion! 3. If I get there and it's Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism, then I'm not coming back.

    No and no.
  10. I don't understand the question. Like, what are the parameters of this "frozen" time? Is this a once in a lifetime thing, or do we have the ability to do it repeatedly? Can/do you interact with people or stuff in this frozen hour? Can you unfreeze people to join you? The way I'm reading this question currently is, "what would you do with 1 extra hour in your lifespan"; and my answer to that is "probably nothing special."
  11. I don't know if the limit is a discrete number, but I have way too many shoes regardless. And yet, somehow, still don't have a "proper" shoe for every occasion.
  12. Combined, 20+ years of Shotokan, Muay Thai, and wrestling. Though I have been a giant slug and done none of that in the past 3 years.
  13. Succubi.
  14. Done since late February/early March.
  15. Nope! My housemates have 2 black and white cats, which is the closest I've been to owning a black cat.
  16. I think I got it. I was sick for about 6 days, which is the longest I've been sick in decades. Overall, it wasn't terrible though. I spent a lot of time sleeping.
  17. In the last 3-4 months I've lost about 20 lbs, repainted a few rooms in my house, and bought a new truck.
  18. I don't know that I'm well-equipped for any of those positions.

    Happy Birthday Vitm !

    Thanks y'all.
  20. What, exactly, has prompted the observance of Easter in the last few years? It went from a holiday that was largely ignored by the secular world to one that shuts things down inconveniently like they're Chick Fil-A and crowds the roadways for sunrise services when you're trying to get home in the wee hours. This was the one holiday I was super-excited to be done with when I stopped being Catholic 20-odd years ago, and here it is bothering me again.

    I drive almost every day. I just got a new (to me) truck in Feb and it's my first automatic transmission vehicle. I was 16 when I learned to drive, and that was a combination of my dad teaching me and Driver's Ed in the summer between 11th and 12th grade. I don't know if I have any particularly noteworthy, or humorous in the retelling, stories about driving.

    Don't feel bad, I didn't learn how to ride without training wheels until 3rd or 4th grade, I think. Though that would have made me about 7 or 8 as well. I know more than one deaf person that ride motorcycles. So, there's hope?

    I learned to swim the summer we moved to Florida. My mom enrolled my sister and I into swimming classes at the community center because our house was on a canal and she wanted us to not drown if we fell in.

    Without any restrictions or parameters to the question, the answer to this should always be omnipotence.
