Do You Feel Lucky?

(and feel free to comment! My older posts are certainly no less relevant to the burning concerns of the day.)

ASK A QUESTION, GET AN ANSWER!

Got a question? Any question?

Post it in comments!

I may answer it in comments directly, it it's an easy one. But if it is a MEATY QUESTION with a SAUCY ANSWER (or saucy question / meaty answer works too, I suppose), I may post your question and my answer too, as the next installment of my regular feature, Ask A Question, Get An Answer!

I stress: it can really be about anything! As long as you don't ask me about my penis length, that's kind of a sore topic, an embarrassing topic for me. See, I found out I was wrong about that one. I'm still kind of adjusting to the "new reality." But anyway, sure - anything else!

Hey, say for instance if you ask me a question about quantum physics? I will do my level best to give you the best true answer I can, based on my own personal experience. Or personal questions, don't even worry about it: ask away! Questions about my sexual, medical, or romantic history, well...! I don't mind you asking! Ask away. Long as you don't mind I might respectfully decline to answer! Probably not in most cases, but probably in some of those areas, there will be some declines. See, there's a lot of overlap in a few of those areas, and a lot of it involves other people's business. Which by habit and natural inclination, I tend to treat in confidence.

Still, that's no reason not to ask! No question too hard. No question too personal!

If you think about it folks, there really is no such thing as a "too personal" question. It's impossible for the question to be at fault! There could only be a "too personal" answer. And in that case, it falls to the answerer, who has 100% discretion to respectfully decline. The question wasn't too personal, but to answer could have been: discretion exercised.

I tend to be a private person, by preference more than by vulnerability. But I have no secrets really. Only confidences, and healthy boundaries.

Hence, I'm not sensitive.

FIRST!

Haha, sorry about that.

dogimo said...

Man. This is up for the whole day, and no comment. :-(

Is it because I swooped in and bogarted firsties? If so, I'll make anybody a deal: if the first NON-me commenter starts off their comment with "FIRST!", I will delete my own two prior "garbage comments" so that the real first person gets firsties. That's fair!

Warning, though: it may take me a while to validate comments on this one. So if you're going to put in your bid for firsties, you takes your chances either way. Somebody else might "show you up." "Pip you at the post."

I WIN!

wait...


aw. shit.

TimT said...

THIS BLOG WEARS THE AWESOME PANTS! Which is just as well, because it would be rude if it didn't have pants on.

dogimo said...

Mel! You do win! I HAVE YOUR CLOCK!! I AM SENDING IT TO YOU!

Thanks for reminding me.

@TimT: thanks, man! It's funny but not necessarily ironic that I just took my pants off for the evening. Like, right before jumping on the internet.

Alicia said...

Haven't actually gotten around to reading any posts yet, but I'm sure they deserve a comment, so GOOD JOB DOGI!

dogimo said...

THANK YOU, Alicia! I feel cautiously, courageously optimistic that I'll prove equal to your as-yet untested confidence.

Mel said...

With just a slight tweak, that big-ass button on the front of your blog could have been written by my mum.

Clean your whole room AT ONCE!

dogimo said...

Now that would be a handy button.

*tap* *tap* Is this thing on? *tap* *tap*

I’d like to dedicate this next song to Joe at Consider Your Ass Kicked!

You are far and awaaaaay, my most imaginary friend

Is there a reason why your blog keeps appearing on then disappearing from my dashboard? This seems to be something only you can accomplish, making me think it's a problem at your end and not at mine. It's most vexing.

dogimo said...

I'm sorry to hear about the problem, Milissa! If the cause is on my end, I'm afraid I don't know what it is. I haven't done anything to my blog template since before google took over. It's pretty much plain vanilla, out-of-the-box functionality, no special customizations to either hide or make my blog appear elsewhere for others.

It's always visible on my own Dashboard!

Milissa said...

Harumph!

dogimo said...

This post was previously called: Consider Your Ass Kicked! NONSPECIFIC COMMENT PAGE, and the post went:

I just put this up for people who have nothing to say about this post or that post, but who would like to place a comment on the WHOLE BLOG AT ONCE.

Or also, maybe fight me about it. Come on, bring the critique! I'll either defend myself against your risibly specious blather, or endorse your wholly valid point! Or stake out some middle point between the two.

It's also possible I might keep my own counsel. I've been increasingly known to do that.

Ask A Question, Get An Answer #1: How Do You Have SO MANY WORDS?

Mel said...

I have a question.

So, hypothetically if you had this friend, right, and she liked to buy clothes and do shopping over the internet and she had a particular site she regularly purchased from called asos.com and a package arrived from them of four skirts but she didn’t recall making the order, so she checked the date and the order was placed when she was in another city visiting a friend, so then she wondered if she’d placed the order in a moment of drunken sincerity, but she checked her asos account and no order was placed by her and then she checked her credit card statement and no money had transacted for the skirts, so clearly it was just a computer error on the part of asos.com and it's someone else's order, so my question is…

It's totally okay for her to keep the skirts isn't it?

More info to help you answer ...

THE SKIRTS ARE IN HER SIZE.

Men and women have "separate but equal" public restrooms, I presume so as to reduce the possibility of either sex sneaking a peek at the naughty bits of one of the other sex.

Well, if gay people enjoy the sight of same-sex privates, should there be additional "separate but equal" public restrooms for them as well?

It's difficult to ask this question without seeming like a raging homophobe, so I appreciate your discretion.

JMH said...

I have a question. Is that obvious? That's not the question. The question is:

Why do people like to eat things stuffed with other things?

dogimo said...

This one's going to take some thinking.

Hmmmm.

dogimo said...

JMH, I want you to know I haven't forgotten your question, but I have been hung up conducting research.

Hung up, and I've also been slapped in the face!

But it's an important question, and I won't take no for answer so sit tight.

dogimo said...

Sorry for the delay, JMH!

Question: Other than death and taxes (naturally), what do you rely on?

dogimo said...

Interesting question, Stephanie: on what do I rely?

I'll go take a flying stab at it.

dogimo said...

Stephanie, thank you for your question!

The Commonwealth Games are occurring at the moment and the question everyone is asking...

Well, can he?

What is the difference between believing in Unicorns and believing in God?

dogimo said...

Easy!

Billions of people have seen God dancing in the light behind the eyes of the one they love. Quite literally: billions of human beings, by their own testimony and by their various (far further afield than the merely Christian) creeds, have seen this.

Throughout history, the only people who have ever seen unicorns dancing in the light behind the eyes of the one they love have been either scumbags, perverts, pedophiles, bestiality aficionados or virgins. The total number of these unicorn-soul-seers is estimated to be in the low hundreds. It could conceivably be as high as the low thousands, if we allow that few who saw such a thing would report it.

They would quite rightly fear the consequent lynch mob mentality their "quirky" attitudes towards animal abuse, cryptozoography, and primary education would bring out the murderer, the Cain, if you will, the animal, the predator in all of their otherwise decent, law-abiding family members and indifferent yet largely pleasant and indistinguishable neighbors and coworkers.

I say: take them out back to be shot.

Any other question? And...how are you, sir! Good to see you! I am once again trying to get "back" to writing. Alas, the flesh is willing but the spirit is LAME.
