Return of the Feud, number 6. [GAME OVER]


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. Only answers that are "serious" will be scored. Joke answers will not be considered, as it is not fair to other players.

3. Formatting rules:

If they are 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 we have 50 entrants, or when we feel that no more people are going to play. I'll score as fast as time will allow.

Good luck!


1. Name a unit of measure that is "made up" (i.e. “smidge”).
2. Name something you'd throw out in a bout of spring cleaning.
3. Name a seed that is used as a spice.
4. Besides blood, name a bodily fluid.
5. Name a constellation that is in the Zodiac.
6. Give a common brand name for laundry detergent.
7. Name a synonym of drunk.
8. Name your most hated household chore.
9. Name something that flashes.
10. Name a type of seashell.

I genuinely did try to come up with an alternative for #1, and I did consider RCH/GCH/BCH (see? Too many variations to be popular), but surely I won't be the only smartass? I mean, the clue is in the question!

Is it an in-joke? I put conch because it was the first one I thought of.

It seems a lot of people aren't getting the joke, so I wouldn't worry about losing 100 points.

For those of you who don't know, back in the beginning of these Feuds I had the same question, and almost everyone said "conch". After that, when an answer was extremely popular, that answer was called "the conch".

Somebody else can probably explain it better.

Deep Purple, "Maybe I'm a Leo" from the Machine Head album.
I'm a Leo too, and sure enough that's what I went for.

I was born when the Sun was in Aries, which means everyone thinks I'm a Taurus. But I picked Virgo because that feels to me like the standard stand-in sign. Like, if you want to introduce a character as believing in astrology, you'd have them say "I'm a Virgo".

I don't think that there are going to be very many points to earn on that question for anyone, though.
