in reply to poll ideas quest

What you say!! I got XP as a result of this quest! I just upvoted the comments until I got one point! :-D Seriously. How 'bout we get no points now, but 20 points if you use one of our ideas as a future poll.

What do you take into the bath/shower with you?
  • A rubber duck
  • A rubber camel
  • A waterproof pen so I can code by writing on the walls.
  • An umbrella (so I don't get wet)
  • Why shower?
  • Vroom/Cowboy Neil
What's the best way to prank your cubicle/office mate
  • The old underwear up the company flagpole routine
  • Forging a note from the boss stating that the next project is to be coded in Aramaic.
  • Angry lobsters in the desk drawer!
  • Waiting until they pass out from too much coding, tying them to their chair, naked, with a note taped to their chest saying "Have a happy Saturnalia", covering them in office condiments such as non-dairy creamer, and then wheeling them to a department on the other side of the building.
  • Replace his Perl binaries with Ruby.
What does PERL stand for?
  • Partially Etherial Religious Life
  • Patented Evil-Removing Language
  • Poingent Erudite Ribald Lecture
  • Painless Effervescent Radient Lingo
  • Pasty Elastic Relaxing Larry
  • Very Respected Object Oriented Manufacturer
What's the best part about the Monastery?
  • Our holy water is Mountain Dew.
  • "Hail Larry" rhymes with "Hail Mary"
  • Fewer difficult names (such as Zerubbabel, Eliakim, and Rehoboam) in our holy texts.
  • CPAN gives us a limited sense of what omniscience feels like.
  • We all really dig eachother!
I'm gonna add more! Just you wait!

    -- for using "prank" as a verb.

    I saw (er, heard) that on a kids TV show, and I'm apalled at what they are teaching our youngsters!

    And, behold, half of your request has come true. You can still get XP for a poll idea, but if one is turned to a poll, the pollsters change the ownership of the poll node to you, so monks can vote on it and you can get XP for it like for normal writeups. This is no fresh change now, it's happened a few years ago.

      Yeah, but 20 points ain't that easy to come by on a poll. :) I find it ironic that it was an April 1st poll that got it.
