Return of the Feud, number 2. [CLOSED]


Here are the rules. PLEASE read them! No new twists this time.


~~~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 will 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!

Read the rules!

1. Tell me something many people do just once a week.
2. Name a reason a person might wake up at 2:00 in the morning.
3. Name something you haven't done since high school gym class.
4. Tell me something you can buy that costs a dollar or less.
5. Name a board game, other than Monopoly.
6. Name a commute time length that is a deal breaker for a new job.
7. What is the first thing most people do in the morning?
8. Tell me a type of gun that doesn't shoot bullets.
9. Name a place you might not get cell phone reception.
10. At your job, out of the 60 minutes in each hour, how many do you spend doing actual work?

I'd be interested in seeing an age comparison of the people who are saying you get up at two to go to the bathroom to those who say you do it because the baby's crying.

Re. number 1, the "take out the trash" once a week answers have me surprised and grateful too; we have trash pickup on Mondays and Thursdays, and the other side of our town has Tuesdays and Fridays. Hubby grew up in a town 4 miles away where they had trash pickup 3 times a week, Monday Thursday and Saturday. It took him a couple of years to stop expecting to put out the trash 3 times a week.

Defensive Indifference, I missed the obvious "church" as well!

And I didn't realize how many people buy gum (maybe because I don't)
