Subject: D&E Quiz Answers!
Ok -- here we go, starting from #10.
The correct answer is "Todd Masco", although we awarded 1/2 point for the answer "Laura Lemay" and for "Like I remember. Uh, doesn't this have something to do with a story Dan wrote. Maybe they're CCONs? Thank you."
The answer we were looking for was "Get dressed, make a telephone call and then it's back off to the Mall!" However, Eric correctly pointed out that the answer should be "sleep!" because the full lyric is "Wake up in the AFTERNOON 'cause morning comes around too soon. Get dressed make a telephone call and then you're back off to the mall. Tough white adolescent anglo-saxon mall boys." We accepted either answer.
The correct answer is psychobitch, of course.
The correct answer is "whatever", however we accepted Joby's "He lived on my floor freshman year in Morewood E-Tower, then demonstrated his wisdom by transferring to a state school. (SUNY Stony Brook in his case.)" as being TECHNICALLY correct. Answers we did NOT accept were: "He is the guy who originally played Eric on CMU 15217 but was later replaced with Mike Darweesh", "An AI experiment set up by Dan under a crack house in the South Bronx" and "Some bunch of nuts".
While there is no definitive answer to this, we accepted "Depends on the time of day", "Depends on the phase of the moon, the weight of the nearest cow and the price of eggs in Poughkipsie, NY", "Life Sucks, and Chuq is the reason why", "Rob is the piper" (see #5) and "Life is great. No, really".
As all d&e'ers should know by now, it means you're just being set up for the bigger fall. We also accepted "You're about to be hit by a Mac truck", and "It's time to pay the piper".
Trick question -- there are no happy and fulfilled d&e'ers. Not surprisingly, most people got this right. Gray gets -1 point for his answer: "Me."
The correct answer: to combat international terrorism and protect the interests of (corporate) America. However, we also accepted "Because of those Andrew bastards!" and other answers of this ilk.
The answer we were looking for was "wHATEver", however we also accepted "We HATE eVERyone" and awarded a half point for "I'm not sure if you knew this but I never really liked you", "I'm going to kill you last", "Penis" and "Kill me".
So the scores for everyone who sent me responses are:
And since Eeyore sent me the following message just now:
From: email@example.com (Elliott C. Evans) Subject: Whatever To: firstname.lastname@example.org.COM How does it feel to be old enough to be a dead actor?
his score gets dropped to 0.
Not surprisingly, Eric is the clear winner. Congrats, ERIC! BTW since nobody got #1, I thought I'd just leave it till the end.
The answer is, of course (hi Nate !):
Coquagline- highly toxic description: A synthetic chemical produced strictly for plumbing clogs classification: Amphetamine with tendencies toward hallucinogenic addiction: High street name: BANGSTILL slang names: Stiff, sit shit, pink death, powder load composition: Lithium chloride,Dihexel-finalbimorphate 6 Dextrose,Hydrochloric magnizophate,Benzoplasma production: In household kitchens and bathrooms without copper fixtures. Can be bought from wholesale chemical houses [strictly protected, MUST HAVE PLUMBING LICENSE AND VALID PLUMBER'S DRUG TEST CARD TO PURCHASE]. legality: Illegal for abuse forms: Pills and powder, rarely but sometimes liquid storage: Room temperature [anywhere above 88 degrees will turn mixture to highly toxic fumes] length of effects:6-74 hours measured effects: 0 min. Ingestion. 1 min. - 5 min. The drug is absorbed through mucus membranes. 5 min. - 40 min. The drug hits the brain and effects are perceived immediately. Some describe it as "an orgasm out of nowhere." The user feels intense pleasure accompanied by an actual orgasm. This stage lasts for over thirty minutes and the user is immobile in his chair or in the area where the drug was ingested. The user generally has a pleasurable expression but experiences severe body seizures. Researchers speculate that at this stage the drug affects the sexual response system of the brain, as it causes the user to have an extended orgasm of up to an hour in duration. 40 min. - 2 hrs. The user feels neither drained nor tired after the orgasm. In fact, he seems to have more energy than usual. He cannot sit still and seeks oral gratification. To satisfy this intense urge, the user will place almost anything in his mouth. With so much energy, the user is extremely hard to control. Most users choke to death at this point. 2 hrs. - 6 hrs. The user is full of energy and will sometimes see hallucinations. A fear of closed spaces occurs. The user must be outdoors or violent behavior may result. Once outside, the user will seek to smell everything. 6 hrs. - 8 hrs. Through this phase, the user focuses almost entirely on the intense pleasure gained from smell. Users have been observed to be totally absorbed for hours by the aroma of a single flower. Users describe this stage as a loss of self and a breaking down of the ego. It is unclear whether the smells perceived are hallucinogenic or actual. 8 hrs - 24 hrs. In this stage, smells are still perceived, but intense pain comes from the kidneys, due to the filtering of the drug from the blood stream. The drug becomes strongly basic. The kidneys are partially dissolved and permanent damage occurs. Most users pass out or go into shock at this point. It seems that the users who survive this phase are mostly heavy heroin users under the influence of both drugs at the same time. 24 hrs - 74 hrs. The user is suddenly relieved of pain through the urinating of the drug's by-products. The user is again euphoric and continues on another extended orgasm lasting from one to three days [depending on dosage]. The user is capable of little activity and will be wracked by convulsions. This stage is characterized by a complete lack of desire to eat, drink or sleep. 74 hrs.+ At this beginning of this period, most users die of starvation or dehydration. The survivors usually enter a deep depression lasting between a week and a year. Suicidal tendencies are exhibited throughout and a full 70% of users kill themselves.
