Place your Random question HERE... :)

So, the idea of this topic is that we can post random questions here...

For example... First question:

- There are squirrels in Switzerland?

If you read them in an Aussie accent with an intonation at the end... well it kind of works?

Squirrels are acturally rather rare.

Skweeee-yer-ulls, however, are somethat thicker on the ground in Switzerland.




(And no, I can't even begin to pronounce 'Chuchichäschtli' correctly, so we're even .)




Next question:

Is the Slug Apocalypse upon us?

(Killed 208 of the evil critters this morning. And all their kin, and their kin's kin were back in time for lunch. I fear we are doomed.)

Re: Place your Random question HERE... :)

Dear fellow EF member, I really need your advice on what could be a crucial decision.

I've suspected for some time now that my GF has been cheating on me. The usual signs...phone rings, but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My GF has been going out with the girls a lot recently, although when I ask their names she always says, "Just some friends from work, you don't know them."

I sometimes stay awake to look out for her cab coming home, but she always comes walking up the drive as I hear the sound of a car leaving, around the corner, as if she has gotten out and walked the rest of the way. Why? Maybe she wasn't in a taxi at all?

I once picked up her cell phone, just to see what time it was. This caused her to go completely berserk. She quickly snatched the phone out of my hand and cursed me hysterically, screaming that I should never touch her personal property, then accused me of trying to spy on her.

Anyway, I have never broached the subject with my GF. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her. I decided I was going to park my BMW F650 next to the garage and then hide behind it so I could get a good view of the street around the corner when she came home. It was at that moment, crouching behind my motorcycle that I noticed a small amount of cooling liquid leaking at the rear from under the seatbank.

So...is this something I can easily repair myself or do you think I should take it back to fatmanfilms?

Yes, but that one looks too serious... this is just for Random and not "so serious" questions

Well, dear fellow member, if this one is real, there is a high chance that she MIGHT be cheating on you...

You could start doing the same... and see which is her behavior

Anyways, If you dont feel "well" with her, then why keep staying with her? Technically, there ratio of women/men its of 7/1... so... you can just pick another one... And you could even choose from 7...

You might have missed the question in the last line maybe..

I'm agree.

Why are my folks in the process of making an elaborate Christmas recipe?

I think it's genetic.
