If you had the chance to have dinner with 5 famous/important people, who would you pick?  (Dead people are allowed.. Though I hear ghosts are often not very hungry)

Kurt Vonnegut, Winston Churchill, George Clooney, Ryan Adams, and Emmy Rossum.

Your dog is very cute.

Thank you.  I agree, but I can take no credit for it.

Favorite reality TV show?

I've been going back and watching all the back-seasons of Survivor lately.  So, I guess a tie between that and "Scream Queens".
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

What will happen to this thread when you sober up?

It will live on in the smile of every child, in the heart of every soul who dares to dream, and eventually on the 5th page of the Xix & Xax forum.

In the meantime, the rum must flow!

Is attention to spelling and grammar something that some people just have a knack for and some people don't?

I notice that some people, regardless of how many times they are corrected, continue to make the same spelling and grammar mistakes. Meanwhile, a person (let's say... Polkablues) can write with impeccable spelling and grammar even while drunk. Or are you just not that drunk yet?

Are these language skills innate, or are the people who can't write well just lazy sonzabitches who never bothered to learn good?

It wasn't an admin. Just checked the moderation log.

I will leave the witty version of this answer to Polka.

I assure you, I am soused.  If anything, my (written) grammar and vocabulary tend to improve as I get drunker.  I don't think language skills are innate, per se, but there are certainly people who are more naturally gifted (I don't really care for that term, but it'll do) with language, in the same way that some people are naturally gifted towards math, music, art, or whatever.  More than anything, I feel like it's an inclination towards language, and thus a greater desire to understand the structures of written communication, that makes the difference.  In other words, education gets you up the hill, but it's the passion for it that gets you rolling down the other side.

Polkablues, why did classical gas's awesome post disappear just now?

Having fortunately caught a glimpse of it before he deleted it, I can only imagine he had second thoughts, but I'll still answer it to the extent that I remember what he asked.

There is no difference between an escort and a prostitute.  Those are essentially marketing terms; there is no fundamental difference in what they denote.  The illegalization of sex work in a modern, secular society is a travesty and a hypocrisy, and an affront to the concept of personal freedom.

Practically speaking, finding your new friends at 1:00 in the morning, the internet has superseded the era of streetwalkers and brothels.  If you're in or near a major city, it's a simple enough matter to find an escort service or listing/review board for independent escorts ("providers", in the current parlance), and finding the sexual artisan to fulfill your needs.  Steer clear of your craigslists and your backpages.coms; you're as likely to find yourself in a law-enforcement sting as to find what you're hoping for.

See, I get verbose when I'm drunk.  And I wish classical gas hadn't deleted his post, because I'm sure there were questions I haven't fully addressed, and I have a metric shit-ton of wisdom to share.

Wow, that must've been an awesome question!

He was asking about the price of French whores, right?

Sorry guys, I couldn't keep that question posted.  It was full of incriminating stuff.  Besides, I wasn't really looking for advice, although I appreciate the response.  It wasn't really a matter of 'hey polka, is it morally right to hire a hooker in these economic times?', as it was 'hey polka, i'm gonna hire me a hooker, what do you think?'  And so, I did take your advice (or didn't, I can't remember) and I looked through craigslist and backpages until I found a darling young woman from a country that no longer exists.  She's real sweet...I think we're married.

Which brings me to my next question: what do you know about faking your own death?  and is that really the answer?

What kind of rum? Neat or with a mixer? On a related note: favorite cocktail?

This is "ask Polka", NOT "Ask 2pac".......  Though, if he ever comes back, that would make a great TV show...... Just saying...
Fuck this place..... I got a script to write.

All the benefits of suicide and none of the downfalls? What are you even waiting for?!?

Currently, Bacardi Gold, since Trader Joe's had it on sale for $9.99. I don't drink spiced rum, since I'm older than 19 and I'm not a girl in a sorority. My drink last night was a rum and diet coke, about 1 part rum to 2 parts diet coke. If I'm ordering a cocktail somewhere, I usually go for vodka tonic with a nicer vodka like Chopin or Belvedere. There's a restaurant near me that serves a drink that's essentially an Old-fashioned with fresh ginger, and it's pretty fantastic.

I know it's not my place to answer, but i'd say 7. You don't want to go into a diabetic coma
