    The flip-flops with the opener sound intriguing. Maybe that's what Jimmy Buffett was wearing when he stepped on a pop-top.

    Jimmy Buffett or James Taylor?

    EDIT: Make the opponent run along the baseline, Sentinel.

    Continental grip. I once experimented with a slight backhand grip, which helped my kick serve and ruined my slice serve. I lost more spin on slice serves and speed on flat serves to make the extra spin on kick serves worth the change of grip.

    One-handed topspin backhand: Eastern grip with a high start and loop like Lendl and Becker, or start low with an extreme Eastern grip like Sampras and Federer?

    Wow, this getting to be an actual tennis thread. That'll have to stop. But, while we're on it...

    Eastern BH grip a la Boris et Ivan.
    [I'd take the Roger/Pete overall game and career stats, but on sheer backhand goodness, there's really nothing like Lendl's running Bh pass or Boris Becker pouncing on a BH return]

    Okay, first date:
    take her someplace really cool
    or
    you take her somewhere fun?

    Psychiatrists argue that a first date is most likely to eventually result in a relationship if the circumstances of the date stimulate the neurotransmitters produced in the usual conditions of "falling in love."

    Cynical scientists would argue that adrenal-producing activities would be the most likely to induce the feelings of "falling in love" in a first date with a woman. Scary movies, exciting amusement park rides, or other shared adrenal-producing experiences produce neurotransmitters that increase the likelihood of a couple bonding, according to many psychiatrists.

    Intelligence agencies use this sort of information in a cold and calculating way. I hope I never view love in such a cynical manner. Spies still believe that love is the easiest way to manipulate emotions.

    ANSWER TO THIS OR THAT QUESTION:
    Take her on an activity that stimulates neurotransmitter in a positive and bonding way.

    Cynical about love in the calculating manner of a Cold War spy, or embrace the woman you love in an always trusting way?

    Me. I am the trusting type.

    Its your first date. Make it clear you want to sleep with her at the outset.
    Or go slow.

    You deal with smarter people at each new level, and have more autonomy.

    Moscow in the summer, or D.C. in the winter?

    Can't have this thread on page 2, even though it seems to be losing steam. Ignoring the fact that I haven't been either place, I'll pick

    Moscow in the summer, even though it's apparently full of spies.

    hummingbirds or quail (to look at, not to eat)?

    Hummingbirds (There is a bush right outside my kitchen window that attracts hummingbirds, and I enjoy seeing them. Photographing the hummingbirds is also a good way to test a new camera or lens)

    The San Jose Sharks or Chicago Blackhawks?

    Stay in Cleveland


    (if he does move, maybe go to the Bulls?...granted, pressure from the 'ghost' of Michael Jordan, but with the talent they aleady have that'd be an interesting team)

    This one.

    Did Dedans accidentally not leave a question, or is his answer also a brilliantly cryptic "this or that" question?

    The ghost of Michael Jordan, wandering the casino labyrinths and blowing his fortune.

    Moscow in the summer, Copenhagen in the summer, or Stockholm in the summer?

    Make new friends.

    Your new friends turn out to work for the country's domestic intelligence service, and due to incompetence and mistaken identity, you are drugged, interrogated, and told to leave the country and never return,

    ~~~or~~~

    your new friends turn out to work for the country's most dangerous
    organized crime organization, and due to incompetence and mistaken identity, you are drugged, interrogated, and told to leave the country and never return?

    This is a no-win situation. Most girlfriends and wives have a compartment in their brain that stores every perceived transgression, so disagreeing with her will eventually come back to haunt you. Going this route is fraught with unknown dangers...& likely to result in a few days of no rooting...

    For one year, you must eat dinner exclusively at your favourite Italian restaurant, or at your favourite Japanese restaurant?

    Japanese, sushi is by far my favorite food but it can be really expensive especially when i go at it so I will probably end up not eating sushi that often

    Nice one. I'm goin' w/ Spock, because he was namechecked in a Beastie Boys song ... ~"Like a pinch in the neck from Mr. Spock"~

    Any guesses as to the title? Bonus pts for the name and year of the album.

    tough choice, but I'd go with the healing, having sex with chocolate seems too messy and gives me weird flashes of CHOCOLATE EASTER BUNNIES GONE WILD!!!

    spiders or cockroaches? (not for sex...well, I guess that's your call)
