    Talking Question of the Day

    Ok, time for a new game. Each day I'll ask a question. All you have to do is answer it. Aside from the general community guidelines, there are only three four rules - 1.) only I may ask the question of the day, (if you have a suggestion, PM me with "QotD Suggestion" and nothing else in the subject header, with your suggestion in the message body of course), 2.) there is no wrong answer, 3.) you may not answer previous days' questions, and 4.) you may not quote this post (other posts however are fair game). Let's get started.

    Question of the Day
    --> It's been a while since we've had a death match here. So let's have another one. Who would win this fight? Darth Maul or Darth Vader?

    Previously Asked Questions
    4 June 2008: What would you do if you could rule the world for a day? (Remember, no real world politics or religion allowed. Just giving fair warning here.)
    2 June 2008: What is your favorite childhood memory?
    1 June 2008: What fast food place do you prefer - McDonalds or Burger King?
    31 May 2008: Ok, something is horribly messed up here. No QotD in almost 72 hours, my biological clock is WAY out of whack, and I just cooked an entire box of extra-creamy macaroni and cheese for myself at 5 in the morning. What's wrong with this picture?
    28 May 2008: What would you rather have - an iPhone or a BlackBerry?
    27 May 2008: Who would you rather see live? Blue Man Group or the Rolling Stones?
    26 May 2008: What was the last CD/DVD you bought?
    25 May 2008: What are your thoughts on the new Indiana Jones movie?
    20 May 2008: What was the last SitePoint book you read?
    19 May 2008: If you were told you could have one ton (2,000 pounds) of anything you wanted, what would you choose?
    18 May 2008: We all have skills we wish we could improve upon, but for some reason can't, no matter how hard we try. So in the spirit of the Question of the Day, I'm going to ask you, what one skill do you wish you could improve upon?
    17 May 2008: Imagine you're about to be stranded on a tropical island for a long time. You can bring one set of clothes, a CD (no CD player) and a book. What would you take with you?
    15 May 2008: I know it's too early to officially tell, but do you honestly think the Chicago Cubs have a chance of making it to the 2008 World Series given the way they've been playing so far this season, or will they have to endure "100 Years of Shame"?
    14 May 2008: You have just inherited one million dollars. However, the terms of the will state that if you help 30 people within 30 days by spending every single last cent of that $1,000,000 you will be rewarded with an extra $10,000,000. Failure to do so will result in the forefeiture of the $1,000,000. Now, legalities aside (since this is a "what if" thread), what would you do with one million dollars?
    13 May 2008: How long have you gone without sleeping?
    12 May 2008: What would you do if SitePoint went out of business tomorrow?
    11 May 2008: Which animal makes the better pet? A dog, or a cat?
    10 May 2008: If a Predator and Terminator were to fight each other to the death, who would win? (Note: the Predator is NOT allowed to use the self-destruct device on his left arm.)
    9 May 2008: With gas prices reaching $4.00 a gallon here in the US, what are YOU doing to save money at the pump?
    7 May 2008: What movie are you going to go see in the theater this weekend?
    6 May 2008: Who's more annoying? Big Mouth Billy Bass or Ren and Stimpy?
    5 May 2008: If the Energizer Bunny and a cymbal monkey were to see which lasted longer, who would win?

    The Energizer Bunny of course would win, it has longer ears than the Cymbal Monkey and whiskers as well. Big advantage

    You're wrong, Datura. The cymbal monkey... because he had a Duracel in his back. It's so obvious that that's the only correct answer!

    --> Why is the Energizer Bunny pink ?

    Shaun, you can't quote my post. Please remove the post you quoted. (Furthermore, only I can ask the question around here.) Seriously, it's in the thread rules.

    (This post on the other hand CAN be quoted.)

    It's a well-known fact that pink things are more aerodynamic and thus lose less energy to air resistance.

    I think the monkey with the cymbals would win. It can clout the pathetic rabbit with them.

    As long as the monkey with the cymbals continues, he'll keep the rabbit awake. This means the monkey HAS to stop before the rabbit can do so. Logical conclusion: the rabbit will win.

    I suppose if the monkey won - it would be a cymbolic victory.

    Assuming that the volumes of the bunny's bass drum and the monkey's cymbals are roughly the same, then the monkey will win because it takes more energy to drive lower frequencies at the same relative volume hence bunny keels over first. *nod*

    Judging from the bunny's cousin - the hare, that lost to the tortoise, I'd say the bunny is full of steam and that the monkey will win.

    I'm not sure know who would win but I bet the tournament would sound pretty cool though.

    All you need now is to add Big Mouth Billy Bass to the equation you will have full band.

    It's my thread. Besides, I plan to archive previous questions in that post, and therefore quoting it after a while would mean that people would have to scroll VERY FAR DOWN just to read the quoted reply.

    I think the success of the challenge hugely depends on what rules Dan gives the contestants

    the cymbal monkey coz the energizer bunny uses way to much energy trying to hold those big ears up, he is also embarrassed over the size of his ears (you can tell this by the way he is hiding back those big sunglasses), a feeling and condition which also drains much of his energy away from him.. so this psychological condition caused by his big ears are causing his disastrous and dramatic end...

    Or how hungry your avatar is. (But don't worry, I don't see the rules changing any time soon.)

    Don't worry.

    Whatever they change to I'll still find a way to break them on purpose so that Dan wouldn't notice.

    I'm not really sure, but I tend to think they'd both look run down after a while.

    New Question --> Who's more annoying? Big Mouth Billy Bass or Ren and Stimpy? (Kudos to McStompin for this one.)

    (And yes, I added a new rule - you cannot answer previously asked questions. That should be the last change for a while; I also clariified the suggestion idea as well.)

    I can handle a half hour Ren and Stimpy show but I don't think I could take more than five minutes of Big Mouth Billy Bass!
