Four For Friday
Q1 - Turkey: If you had to pick the biggest business, political, or celebrity turkey of 2009, who would it be and why?
Q2 - Lights: If someone driving toward you has his car's high beam lights on when you feel they shouldn't be on, do you ignore it or do you flash your lights in an attempt to get him to turn them off?
Q3 - Change: When you pay for an item at a store and the amount due comes to something and change (e.g., $5.47), do you attempt to pay the exact amount (i.e. do you dig around in your purse or pockets to find the 47 cents), or do you simply pay with bills and pocket the change for later on? If you're not the kind to pay with exact change, how do you feel about the people in front of you who do?
Q4 - Invention: If you could invent something that hasn't been invented yet, what would you invent?

Q1: Um..I don't know. I pretty much think everyone is a tool right now, so I can't really narrow it down.
Q2: I don't do this. Some people say it's an Urban Myth, but I've heard that gangs initiate new members by killing the drivers of cars that flash their lights at them. I'm not sure if it's true, I'm just saying..
Q3: I don't usually worry about digging for the change. I hate when women in front of me have to put all of their things back in place though, it's so annoying. MOVE.
Q4: I would invent a washing machine that automatically dumps the clothes into the dryer and starts it. Putting clothes into the dryer is just annoying.
Q1 - Turkey: Mmm... even though the reason for his turkiness happened in 1977, I'm gonna have to say that Polanski is still one of the biggest turkeys today. Sarkozy's gotta be pretty close for so ardently supporting Polanski, saying that just because he's managed to evade justice for so long, charges should be dropped.
Q2 - Lights: I always flash my lights. 99% of the time the other driver turns their high beams off. I also flash my lights at those who are driving around at night or through thick fog without their lights on. But 99% of them don't turn their lights on anyway. Kinda weird if you ask me.
Q3 - Change: I don't use cash. Those who do, and insist on paying with exact amounts, don't bother me at all.
Q4 - Invention: Easy. A machine that can clone your body, making a perfectly healthy copy, and transfer your consciousness over to the new body.
Q1 - Congress, all of them. What a bunch of self-serving idiots!!! If we were as stupid as they think, we would need all the governing that they want to force on us!!!
Q2 - I flash my lights to get them to lower their high beams and I mutter curses when they don't.
Q3 - I always try to pay the portion of change that I can. I usually know how much change I have in my pocket, so I will give what change that I have to have larger change. For instance, if I have 23 cents and I spend $10.66; I will give them $11.16 to get back 2 quarters.
Q4 - I still want to invent the jerk seeking missle. When somebody cuts me off in traffic, launch; KABOOM!!!!!!
A1 - Turkey: I can think of several, but one would be Madoff. It takes a real idiot genius to loose 50 billion! And even more appalling is the complete lack of oversight by bigger idiot genius's in the SEC!!
A2 - Lights: I close my eyes and hope for the best! :) ha, ha, ha
A3 - Change: I'm the one who likes to get it over with as quickly as possible. All that left over change finds its way into my "piggy bank", where one day I'll be able to "retire" on such change - yeah, who are we kidding!
A4 - Invention: Can't say, I haven't patented it yet and don't someone stealing my ideas yet!!! :)
