A Feud for the Isolated (Crossposted at Giraffeboards) [Game Over]


Object of the game:
Give the most popular answer for each category. You want to match the other people in the game.

Rules:
1. No reading the thread before answering. This is on the honor system.
2. Formatting rules must be followed (see below).
3. Joke answers will not be considered, as it is not fair to other players.
4. Google (etc.) is allowed, if you desire.
5. Maximum 50 entrants, and I'll score it when I have time.
6. There is no Rule 6.

Formatting rules:
To make semi-automated scoring possible, and my job easier, make your post look exactly like this:

1. answer
2. answer
3. answer
4. answer

No double spacing, no smilies, no urls, no periods, no quote marks, and no punctuation if it is not necessary. Put "pass" if you want to leave an answer blank. If you feel you must qualify your answer, do it AFTER THE LIST!
If you donít format like this, your answers might be DISQUALIFIED.

Here are the rules. PLEASE read them!


~~~RULES~~~

1. DO NOT READ THIS THREAD BEFORE YOU POST YOUR ANSWERS, lest you see the other answers. Scroll really fast to the bottom, or hit "end" on your keyboard. We play by the honor system. There is a chance you won't get in the game after it's gone to two pages, it's just the way it goes. There is typically a lot of chatter posts that aren't answer posts, so give it a shot anyway!

2. Object of the game: Try to think of the most popular answer, to get the most people matching you. Google is allowed, if you desire.

3. Formatting rules:

If formatting is not followed, your answers might be DISQUALIFIED!

1. answer
2. answer
3. answer
4. answer

Make your list look like the one above. No double spacing. No periods (except for the one following the number.) No quote marks, no punctuation if it is not necessary! No smilies! No extraneous bullshit is allowed. If you feel you must qualify your answer, do it AFTER THE LIST!

The reason this is so important is because I cut and paste all the answers, and I have to edit each answer to make them identical. It is a lot of work, so please make it easier on me. Thanks.

Scoring - All matching answers will be worth 2 points each. For example: If 4 people match that means they each get 8 pts for that answer. No matches = 0 points.

The game will end when I feel that no more people are going to play, or a maximum of 50. I'll score as fast as time will allow.


Good luck!

1. Besides toilet paper, name something you have that a neighbor might try to borrow.
2. An eye for an eye is one expression that contains the word 'eye'. Name another.
3. Complete this sentence with one word: The true measure of success is having a great ___.
4. Name something that burglars check to see if a family is out of town.
5. If you're right-handed, name something you just can't do with your left hand. (Or vice-versa.)
6. Name something little kids hate to do.
7. Besides an engine, name something under the hood of a car.
8. Name something people put their name on.
9. Name a mammal you wouldn't kiss on the lips for any money.
10. Name an annoying sound that comes from a neighbor's house or apartment.

I can write with my off hand it just isn't very legible. However, if I had to use chopsticks with my left hand as my only source of food intake, I'd die.

needscoffee - please repost your list in single spaced, as requested in the OP. Thank you.


ETA: This is the slowest Feud I've ever seen! But I forgot to announce it in my Omnibus Feud thread in The Game Room. Headed there now.
