I'd guess negative on norovirus by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Sep 09, 2010 at 10:47:28 AM EST
only that the one time I had it, all I wanted to to was sleep or rush to the toilet. Guts hurt, everything hurt. Couldn't really do much of anything.

I tried to sleep my day away by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Sep 09, 2010 at 10:53:11 AM EST
but ended up too sore, so I'd get up a few hours on the couch, sipping water, until I went back to bed for a nap. That was my Saturday.

sorry to respond here, but can't make top-level comments at work.

there are some very bad translations of the bhagavad gita which really ought to be consigned to the fire. but that's not the spirit of your question.

I don't feel like submitting a Change Request by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Sep 09, 2010 at 11:11:49 AM EST
to allow enough poll options to deal with bad translations. The Bible alone would need slots for "Good New For Modern Man" and other bad translations, notwithstanding all the sectarian issues (I'm not even supposed to like the King James version).

WIPO: Anything by that slut, Chelsea Handler. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Sep 09, 2010 at 04:03:01 PM EST
Also, squirrels sleep at night, so you have some other critter awakening you. My guess would be 'possums.

well, someone's gotta write the potty-mouth humor.

Also she is my age and looks easily mid-40s.

She needs de-tox and a cryo-stasis chamber. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #10 Thu Sep 09, 2010 at 09:06:21 PM EST
Forced sterilization too, for the sake of humanity.

She revealed why she's such a coked-out attention whore in Rolling Stone -- She's still jealous of the attention her older brother got from the family after he fell to death from a cliff. What a twunt!

wrt the poll by lm (2.00 / 0) #8 Thu Sep 09, 2010 at 07:24:15 PM EST
So far as I can recollect, the Bible is the only book I've ever burned. And, believe it or not, I've got a stack waiting to be burned once I find a convenient place to start an appropriately sized fire.

No decent recycling service? Or you need kindling?

It's a traditional thing by lm (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri Sep 10, 2010 at 08:08:41 AM EST
In some ways, I'm a pretty conservative guy. One of those ways is holding to the ages old practice of burning religious items when damaged beyond repair rather than tossing them in with the rubbish.

Aside from that, it's usually good for gasps of shock and horror in casual conversation among acquaintances when I mention that I burn Bibles. Most people immediately assume that my motives are exactly opposite to what they are.

And I happen to lick shocking and horrifying people. I'm a bad man.

Yes, you are a bad man. by ambrosen (2.00 / 0) #14 Fri Sep 10, 2010 at 08:46:19 AM EST

It's bad to lick mundane and comforting people, too. Without their consent. With their consent, well, you know, it's none of my business.

My public burning of Acts of the Apostles by johnny (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Sep 10, 2010 at 07:58:32 AM EST
Will probably be not so public, but rather on my back deck, on the weber grill. I'll only burn enough pages of it to start the charcoal. But I will, if I can figure out how to do it, make it a live webcast.

A lot of organizing needs to be done, and fast, if I'm going to make it to the CNN chryron or whatever they call that thing that scrolls.

She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)
