• Poll: Have you ever been mortal?

    And if you have, did you get wrong for doing something you had no memory doing? I've never even been tipsy never mind mortal. I'm a lifelong teetotaller.

  • Poll: Who else thinks Answers has taken off at warp speed today?

    I've used up my eighty answers on P&S alone and I've only covered the questions that were posted in a three or four hour period. I'm not used to this anymore, I mean, it used to be like this in the good old days of the mid noughties but not any more. All they need to do is to make us unlimited again and I'll be happy.

  • Poll: Straights: When did you decide to be straight rather than gay or bi?

    Obviously, you made the conscious choice to be straight as many people have told me I made a choice to be gay so it must be the same for you.

  • How did Cutna die in House?

    I've just watched his funeral episode from series five, which means that I watched his death episode an hour ago but I wasn't paying attention and actually went for a shower while it was on. You can guarantee that when I don't pay attention, something happens. Unfortunately, I've deleted it from my planner so I can't go back... show more

  • What are your Independence Day plans?

    Happy Independence Day to our American brethren ... and sistren. Before you say it's not Independence Day, it is 4th July in the UK by two hours and since the original borough of Washington is within the boundaries of the town I live in, we mark it a bit.

  • Poll: Why don't people like questions about it getting light?

    I've asked whether its getting light three times now and all three times I've been reported within minutes of it being posted. I can't see why anyone would have a problem with it.

I'm interested to know what time it starts getting light where everyone is. In the North East of England at the moment it's about two thirty and since I work nightshift, I'm often awake all night on nights off, like tonight. I know that if you're closer to the equator, it will be later.

  • Where do strict muslim families go on holiday?

    Genuine question. I was just looking at photos of my last big holiday in Aruba and it got me wondering where devout muslims go on holiday as you don't see many niqab-wearing ladies on package holidays to the sun.

    Genuine question. I was just looking at photos of my last big holiday in Aruba and it got me wondering where devout muslims go on holiday as you don't see many niqab-wearing ladies on package holidays to the sun. I know the Hajj is a sacred obligation but I do occasionally watch Muslim TV channels and from what I can gather, the Hajj can be very expensive. Do they even go on holiday? I also know that financial credit agreements (usary), celebrating birthdays etc are frowned on.

Do you have a landmark local to you that has a similar affect?

In the background, none of the extras were using knives and when I visited Miami a few years ago, my friends and I went out for lunch and they were surprised when I used a knife AND a fork. I know you are a sophisticated people but was wondering if it's a cultural thing.
