If you're (still) a Republican, you just pretend it is all ok.

If you do not have the "switch" to which I referred, you are indeed a very special woman!

LOL Marion. That is why I stated "even though." I'm not the typical woman with the other switch. lol

Women have a switch all right but it is NOT called an "ignore" switch!

Even though I am a woman, I do what most men do. I turn on my "ignore" switch. :-)

Distance. I find the farther the getaway car carries me from the scene, the brighter my outlook becomes.

I have a special place I go to during bad situations. If it's particularly bad I may have to flush twice.

Is this another question about roundabouts and traffic-calming devices?

Your "Bad situation" may be my idea of fun. It's all attitude!

Look straight into the lens and calmly scream, "We're all going to die!!!"

Admit nothing, deny everything and make counter-accusations.

Wait, this question sounds familiar. Didn't they run this one a while ago?

I move to a new state and change my name. That's how I make the best of a bad situation.

(Oh, and I'll be on the road to Lawrence before long.)

Gojira is my hero, yes.

Not elitist, but the original Japanese name sounds so much cooler to shriek out when you knock over Lego buildings.

Not to say I've done that. Just a guy I know.

Pick it up, wash it off, and cook it until the center has reached 160 degrees

Maintain good eye contact, and don't be afraid to throw in a wink or a sly grin.

jonas, like Godzilla? :)

Could this question be any more vague? Are we talking getting home from the grocery store and realizing you've fogotten to buy milk...or something cataclysmic? Of course in my house, forgetting the milk might just cause a catastrophe.

I destroy whatever is in my way.
