Post WTF?
This is a thread where you can ask (or answer) any random "WTF?" questions that spring to mind.


Here's one to start on: WTF is the difference between corned beef and pastrami?

They're both cured beef products, initially brined in a solution of salt, spices, sugar and sodium nitrates and nitrites. Both are beef brisket.

The only difference is the seasonings, pastrami is usually coated in crushed peppers and other spices, corned beef is not.

Since they don't change after they die, they just use a recent pre-mortem photo as a mirror.

It has to do with water displacement.

Exactly. Or, in other terms, it has nothing to do with weight, it's all about density.

A big boat full of air stays on the surface of the water for pretty much the same reason a big balloon full of hotter air (or helium) floats up into the sky.


WTF? There was a show on TV not long ago with a countdown of the best commercials throughout the Superbowl's history. Most people agree that the commercials are the highlight of the Superbowl. So why not just get rid of the whole football part of the Superbowl? It's just distracting filler.

Post WTF? Cowboy Junkies
I downloaded Velvet Acid Christ's Lust For Blood the other day. I was listening to it while getting ready to go out Saturday night and all of the sudden, in the middle of Crushed, the song segues into the Cowboy Junkies' Sweet Jane. I don't own ANY Cowboy Junkies. I'm so disoriented by the switch that my first thought was, wtf? VAC wrote this??? Then I realized how insane that thought sounded and emailed my download vendor who fixed the problem. I now have a complete, CJ-free version of Crushed ;) Man that was freaky though.

What night?
Thursdays are a weeknight, so that's understandable.
By contrast, Saturdays are almost too crowded.
But Fridays, which aren't a weeknight (except for peeps who work on Saturday), have been pretty barren.
WTF?

Err, I mean, "...or so I'm told."



WTF is the deal with people pissin' with the toilet seat down? I mean, everybody has to poop at some point, and I can't imagine anyone wanting to sit in someone else's piss sprinkles. So why do people assume that someone might want to sit in their piss sprinkles?

That's why I carry a small spray bottle of disinfectant when I go on the road
Plus, I keep one in the bathroom of any place I work

well, darling, for the first time in 15 years the U of M has declared a snow day... I know my car doesn't have the clearance that I seem to think it does. or quite the traction than my bug did.

UofM actually closed before my school did, amazing. my school (st thomas) decided at about 10am this morning that closing at 3:15pm was a good idea.

i seem to always buy good snow cars- high clearance, good low gear, front wheel drive with plenty of weight. some day I may even be able to afford something with "traction control", which is even nicer. wo my new WTF would be "WTF would you drive around in a low-slung underweight sports coupe with rear wheel drive in the upper midwest?".

and yes, it seems I work with a bunch of sissies. a foot of snow? I can see if it was something like double this, and I can also understand wanting to take off if your kids were getting sent home from school. but, it's about 10" over 12 hours- nothing like the 2" per hour they're getting in duluth, or that you get near any of the lakes. and, not a single person who scampered hurriedly out of here today has a kid who was going to be stranded because of an early school day.

Suck it up. It's a (relatively mild) blizzard, not a hurricane.

And, for the record, UWEC has not had a snow day where classes were canceled in something like 22 years (or that was last count when I went there). Classes were occasionaly optional, but that was more for wind chill than snow fall.

Granted, i'm not going to be doing any extra traveling over the next couple of days, but, if i were *horrified* by the prospect of driving in a heavy snow storm, I'd find some other place to live.

A badonkadonk is a kind of comfy seat, so this phrase seems to indicate a posterior fattened up through laziness and much time spent in this seat. You woudn't look good with a big ass.

Most people don't understand those things well, so goths are nothing special in this regard. Either that, or the unbearable weight of existing has crushed their very souls, wrapping them, shroudlike, so that the mere thought of smiling is so foreign, so distant.

I'll go with my first guess, though.

WTF? Those Cinnamon-Melt things at McDonald's are only $1.39 and taste just like a Cinnabon. Actually <i>better than</i> a Cinnabon, which always seem to have way too much margarine in them.

Overheard in a teleconference on blogging:

"It's no longer only for the 14 year old goth teenagers somewhere in the Midwest."
