I hate the terms "poo," "poop," "pee," "peepee," and such. It drives me up the wall. The so-called "swearword" versions don't bother me at all, however. Somehow, I think the other versions should be swearwords, instead. Somehow they seem more offensive.
This Week's Trivia
There was once a French soft drink named Pshitt.
No joke. I'm sure it was sounded out the same, too. Maybe it was named for the sound that the bottle makes when you open it, but its a bad name anyway.
Last Week's Polls
Do you think "big box" stores amplify kids' screams?
- Second was it was annoying. And it is only one of the reasons I hardly go into Walmart anymore. The other is...
- The first, which is all that you hear is the ads and music blaring over the sound system. After I got really sick a few years ago, being in Walmart for an extended period of time (over 10 minutes sometimes, 30 minutes at the most) makes me feel sick with an upset stomach or lightheaded and I have to leave. I think its the sound barrage to my brain. Ads and crappy music and video ads in almost every isle and too much conflicting music in the movie and entertainment isle (where mom and dad like to linger) I think literally shorts out my system, and I feel sick as a result. I sit in the truck, nowadays.
- Oh, and StormRider: I think that there is subliminal messages in the music and ads they blare. Would explain why you feel compelled to buy stuff when you step into the store. Maybe that's why I get sick.
Do you think architects conciously create those stores' shape to amplify kids' cries? (joke poll)
- Third was a triple tie of Comment, they want to torture us (I knew it!), and it is a weird unconcious desire for the construction crews to build them that way. Maybe they are being subject to subliminal messages, too?
- Second was another tie, this time of we're all in a social experiment we didn't know we were in (the worst!) and it is a secret government plan to make us all insane. Argh, I knew it! Get the aluminum hats, everyone! Quick!
- And first was you think it is just the shape of the store, not any evil intent or anything. You think...
Ever gotten lost in a game? (In a building, etc.)
- Second was one guy who said Comment. But sometimes in-game maps can let you down...especially if they don't show if you're on the second floor or the first one. They just show you where you "are."
- And first was a tie of only with really big complexes. Rivet City was my nemesis in Fallout 3. Vault 34 was my nemesis in New Vegas. Worse was that you're getting irradiated while you're lost. And Nchuand-Zel in Skyrim is mine, as well. Just as bad is that it always freezes while I'm in there, so I haven't explored it in ages.
