    Roommate wanted

    I have an extra room here in my apartment. To help with bills, I'm going to rent out the extra room. I'm making up a questionnaire that any applicants will need to fill out, do any of you have recommendations for what questions I should be asking?

    I'm reminded of a list of new security measures The Onion recently released- if I were you, I'd do the same (to make sure you don't get the wrong type of roommate).

    Here's the link:

    Edit:

    Okay, I just read these again, and while not all of them would apply to you, they're still pretty damn funny

    Here are some possible questions...

    1) At what volume do you play your music?

    2) What styles of music do you listen to?

    3) Do you plan to have many guests over?

    4) Do you have a significant other?

    5) How late do you go to bed?

    6) How early do you wake up?

    7) Do you classify yourself as messy or clean?

    8) Do you talk/walk in your sleep? Do you snore?

    9) How long do you generally spend in the bathroom in the morning? (Assuming you're sharing this as well..)

    10) Are you willing to make an effort to keep the apartment clean -- or if he is only allowed using his room, the same goes for that.(not just tidy, actually clean.. vacuuming etc.)

    You nust need to ask the most annoying things ever!

    Do you eat with your mouse open and do you lick your fingers noisily.

    BTW anyone who answers YES to those two questions is NOT invited to the SitePoint UK meet. and I am not budging on that one!

    Do you attend Chocolate Lovers Anonymous? I'm beginning to think that this is a serious problem.

    do you have pets?

    do you expect to keep any?

    are you employed, legally?

    can you cook?

    why did you leave your last place?

    do you have a sense of humour?

    Just tell people to apply in person, conduct interviews for a week, and pick the most congenial/goodlooking/whatever person.

    And just as a general note... if you can get a girl over a guy to room with you'd I'd do it. In general girls are cleaner and less noisy. Plus maybe she'll have friends.

    Try living with college girls who like to party. They are by far more noisy and abnxious than guys. Generally guys are content to drink beer and get some sEX. Girls when they party they go nuts. And the prep time with girls running around the apartment alf naked trying to get ready to go out. Damn what a pain

    for($c 0$c $mood$c++)
    {
    print 
    "Meow!";
