Triple-choice game

Yeah, I, uh, accidentally deleted the entire fricking thread while trying to delete a double-post. I'll contact the Spacewranglers to see if it can be restored, but probably not.

For those of you who might not be familiar with this game, the rules are simple. Each poster gets to answer one of the previous two questions by choosing one of the multiple-choice answers. After you have answered, you then get to ask a new question. The forum I originally stole this from had a either/or format, but this one has evolved into a one hand/other hand/gripping hand format in keeping with the strip's title.

Any questions? Good.

So, for deleting a 250+-response thread, I am:

A) an incompetent yutz.

B) a complete boob (and not the good, jiggling kind, either).

C) a wretched wretch.

I'll say B. But, if it's not good and jiggling, doesn't that make it an incomplete boob? ;-) (I will now be in pain by the female readers of this forum)

I think phpBB runs off of mySQL. I'm not sure how it (phpBB) handles deleted posts, though... if it deletes it on the spot (Might be a bad idea, since a DELETE query is one of the most processor-intensive SQL calls you can do), you're screwed. If, however, it simply gets marked as 'delete later' and is deleted en masse with anything else that needs deleting for the day, you might have a few hours left to contact a Wrangler. But, I wouldn't count on it.

Which, of course, brings me to the question...

What should CaptainSpam do next?

A) Shut up about his knowledge of mySQL, since nobody cares how geeky he is,
B) Shut up with his stupid boob jokes, or

I choose "A" not because I don't care how geeky you are, but because boob jokes are always funny and because you shouldn't just shut up.

How do you know she's a witch?

A) She weighs as much as a duck.

B) She turned you into a newt.

C) Well, she <i>has</i> got a wart....

I kinda like C:

I mean, didn't Wretchy Wretch have all those cool toys, cash, cars, robots and planes and things?

I mean wouldn' t that be fun... huh...? Oh... nevermind.

psst... need new question, Scott! :-)

Best quirky British cartoon of these three? (so, no bringing up Wallace & Grommit, for example)

A) Dangermouse
B) Count Duckula
C) Rex the Runt

Dangermouse! Dangermouse! Dangermouse! :D


What is your name?
What is your quest?
What is your favorite color?

Nicholas "CaptainSpam" Killewald, global destruction, and red.

Heh... Matt, mebbe reposting the rules would've been a wise choice. :-)

Scott, the idea's a bit more like, you answer the previous question and then throw up a new multiple-choice question. FUN! YAH!

Favorite type of waveform (Any purpose)?

A) Sinusoidal
B) Sawtooth
C) Square

PostPosted: Thu Sep 26, 2002 2:14 pm

Sinusoidal because it's all "Outer Limits-esque". 8)



Gamera, or

Gojira! He is, after all, King of the Monsters! And there's just something unbelievable about a giant turtle that flies by shooting jets out of his rear leg holes <small>(whereas a giant city-ravaging lizard with atomic breath is, of course, the very picture of credulity)</small>.

Where's the better place to spend those two precious weeks off each year:

a) The Island of Misfit Toys,

b) The Island of Dr. Moreau, or

c) The Islands of Langerhans?

Triple Choice Game

Har! Definitely Islands of Langerhans...and getting in touch with my inner self. Also because I work on the Island of Misfit Toys. OK, it is still Zeptember...

1) Led Zeppelin I
2) Led Zeppelin II
3) Led Zeppelin III

Been listening to the Rocket, Monkey?

Hm, although <i>II</i> has "Moby Dick" and "The Lemon Song," I'll have to choose <i>III</i>. It's got "Out On the Tiles," "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp," and "Gallows Pole" <i>as well as</i> "Immigrant Song." And, really, how can you dismiss a heavy metal song about the Viking invasions of Britain? That's right, you can't!

What's the better example of the darkness that lurks within the human soul:

a) <i>Heart of Darkness</i>, Joseph Conrad ("Exterminate the brutes!")

b) <i>Taxi Driver</i>, Martin Scorsese ("You talkin to me? You talkin to <i>me</i>?)

c) <i>Garfield</i>, Jim Davis ("I hate Mondays!")

<small>Yay! Another cheerful one!</i>

Garfield, by far. Greed, gluttony, slothfulness, pride, envy... it's all there in one evil orange package. Jim Davis did a good job of illustrating the evils of humanity (Garfield) in conflict with the innocence of life (Odie, Nermal) and the sanity of mankind (Jon Arbuckle).

Best food reheated (or not)?

A) Pizza
B) Casserole
C) Taco Bell

Definately pizza - I just prefer the way the cheese reheats :).

Reusing questions from the previous incarnation of this thread would be
a) unimaginative,
b) completely pathetic,
or c) An extremely good idea if I could only rememeber any?

PostPosted: Tue Oct 22, 2002 8:17 am

C. It'd be a spiffing idea, given that the other thread was nuked. (looks at Matt) :-)

Prefered flavor of slushie?

A) Red
B) Purple
C) Green

(Yes, for slushies, flavor is more equivilent to color than whatever they say the flavor is)

Works the same way as Jell-O an' I like it Green.

Best of the worst:
1) Story of Ricky (Ricki-O)
2) Thou Shall Not Kill, Except...
3) Any Ed Wood film

Dude, Ed Wood, of course! Any transvestite that could come up with Plan 9 From Outer Space, the only movie where alien vampires reanimate the dead and send their zombie army to attempt to conquer the Earth has got to be a genius!

Unfortunately, his genius did not lie in filmmaking....

On the subject of movies, what's the best version of these three retellings of the exact same plot:

a: The Road Warrior

b: High Plains Drifter

c: Waterworld

Road Warrior

It doesn't make any sence at all, but the others didn't have cars.

Okay... umm....

Nip & Tuck

Under The Lemon Tree


Tales of the Questor

Hey! Waterworld had a car!

Ooo, tough choice. I gotta say, Tales of the Questor. Hell, that beginning sequence with the Bruce Cambell/Evil Dead reference is worth it alone but the rest of the story doesn't disappoint either.

Manliest Western Actor: Randolph Scott, Clint Eastwood or John Wayne

A) Clint Eastwood - he did dangerous unknown better than anyone (IMNSHO of course)

Q) Best thing about Halloween is
a) The candy?
b) The costumes?
c) The Fright Night crossovers?

Costumes, of course. I always make it a point to attempt to predict what the most popular class of costume will be and see if I'm right. This year, I'm predicting... either Powerpuff Girls or random patriotic. I'm still thinking there's SOME holdover from last year.

Favorite thing having to do with time?
a) the GMT time zone
b) the International Date Line
c) Daylight Savings Time
