Quickie Questions

Go To

This thread is for quick questions. A "quick question" is a question which has a relatively quick, generally factual answer; a question which is not likely to inspire an extended discussion.

e.g.

Quick Question: How tall is an average ten-year-old boy?
Not a Quick Question: Why are Americans obsessed with guns?

Quick Question: Why is ALS sometimes called Lou Gehrig's Disease? Who was Lou Gehrig?
Not a Quick Question: In Alan Dean Foster's Thranx Commonwealth series, is Pip a Mary Sue?

Get the idea?

...Uh, I dunno, but that made me think of that one Looney Tunes cartoon with Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny.

No, all the characters were musical instruments like the princess was a violin and the prince was a saxophone I believe.

No, this is more of a utilitarian thread for those who are just looking for a simple answer to something bugging them. Kinda like Random Complaints but more focused.

[up][up] Yeah, that sounds about right.

It sort of reminds me of the It Just Bugs Me namespace.

Huh, is it a coincidence that I mentioned Looney Tunes?

Oh wow! I remember this! My music teacher (her name is Mrs. Decker, and she is one of the best teachers I've ever had) let us watch this in class.

It's spelt "quiche".

Hey baby, let's go back to my place for a quiche.

You know what's bugging me right now? This Giant Bomb Quick Look.

Specifically, why all the Brad Garrett hate? I don't think they said why he sucks or deserves a game that's all about killing him (which I find unfunny and, to be honest, a bit disturbing), outside of the implication that Everybody Loves Raymond was a bad show. Seriously, did I miss something?

It's a shame, because I found some bits of the video pretty funny.

It's a shame no one knows he played The Big Dog in the modern classic Two Stupid Dogs...

Also, speaking of Everybody Loves Raymond, I once stumbled across an article about the show written by some guy who hated the show and thought that everyone with anything to do with it still being on (in 2004) should be killed. My then-broken/nonexistent Poe's Law device being inherited from my mother, I took it seriously and thought it was infuriating.

^He did? I watched that show as a kid and never knew. Now that I think about it, Big Dog does sound like him.

I could have, but the forums usually provide better discussions.

Possibly true. I don't, in fact, ever look at You Know That Show.
