    5 Question Fridays

    1. Has Social Media eliminated the need for message boards?
    2. Shopping. Done?
    3. What's the average $ you spent on your parents for Christmas?
    4. On a scale of 1-10 rate your Christmas Light Display.
    5. Were you anticipating any catastrophe today?
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    Re: 5 Question Fridays

    1. No .. I prefer message boards over the social media. I use social media to just keep in touch.
    2. Nope.. still have those damn stocking stuffers to buy!
    3. I don't really talk to my parents so I don't buy them presents.
    4. I give Coastal a 7 this year!
    5. NO, however I was expecting some form of mass shooting, but that happened last Friday. I hope and pray there is not any other idiot out there today that is going to plan something stupid.

    1. No, but it has reduced the needs/usage of them.
    2. Almost- just got some stocking stuffers
    3. 0- we do a random Secret Santa exchange so if I don't get one of them I don't get them anything
    4. 0. The inside of our house is decorated like crazy but we never got a chance to put the outdoor lights out this year.
    5. no.

    Re: 5 Question Fridays

    1. No, as I don't use Facebook/Twitter etc. but then again message boards have replaced usenet/news groups so who knows what the future holds.
    2. Sadly no.
    3. About $100.00 each
    4. 1 as I don't have any so I really should have scored a 0.
    5. Nope.

    1. Message boards aren't a need, but there will be people that prefer them over social media so that their family can't see the f'd up stuff they say.
    2. No, a few odds and ends left
    3. $25 - $50 for each
    4. zero on the outside about a 5 for the inside on tree and mantle
    5. there is always a catastrophe somewhere, but I didn't think the end was near

    1. Don't think so. Message Boards allow for more thought out and prolonged arguments to be made where social media is for short and immediate bursts.
    2. Just finished
    3. Combined (parents and in-laws): $300
    4. 2
    5. Nope
    COMING SOON...

    2. Shopping. Done?Done before it started. No money left after that 18k salary to pay my regular bills.
    3. What's the average $ you spent on your parents for Christmas? Not a dime. They'll get their present when they die knowing they created nothing that made a difference in this world. Don't **** to have kids if you have nothing to offer your offspring but your problems.
    4. On a scale of 1-10 rate your Christmas Light Display.Haven't ever set up a Christmas display.
    5. Were you anticipating any catastrophe today? Nah, the calendar was never finished.

    Re: 5 Question Fridays

    1. Has Social Media eliminated the need for message boards?
    It's kind of a flawed question. Message boards are social media. If you're asking if newer social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. will replace message boards, then my answer is no. Message boards serve a different purpose than a Facebook or Twitter feed. Also, it's a bad strategy as someone who provides any kind of forum or content service to put all of your content in the hands of a site or service you don't control. You could set up a discussion forum on Facebook, but you have no control or say in how it's run. And if Facebook goes under (which is always a possibility), you've lost all of your content.

    2. Shopping. Done?
    Haven't started yet.

    3. What's the average $ you spent on your parents for Christmas?
    $100 each

    4. On a scale of 1-10 rate your Christmas Light Display.
    Griswold

    5. Were you anticipating any catastrophe today?
    Apparently there's a killer blizzard about to hit NYC that no one knows about ...

    1. Apparently, considering half or more of you douchebags rarely show your face around here anymore.

    2. Been done.

    3. About $75-$100 each.

    4. 8 outside, 10 inside. Wife really goes to town.

    5. Not on Friday, but the expected weekly catastrophe showed up again yesterday afternoon.
    There's battle lines being drawn...Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
    We better stop...Hey, what's that sound? Everybody look - what's going down?
