I found this new site to waste time in. It's called Answerbag.com. A site of a million questions and millions of answers. At least it seems that way. The questions are posed by flounders like me and answered by flounders like me. The questions range from damn interesting to about as dumb a question as you will ever read in print.
In order to build interest and keep folks coming back, it has a convoluted system of points you can earn for good answers, good questions, and just participating. You can also get negative points from people who don't like your answers or your questions. I was into it for several days before I even had a clue about the points thing. I was answering questions just because someone asked. If you are opinionated like me, this place is opinion heaven. Watch out though. Piss off the wrong person who has a higher level and you can get slapped down hard when they take away points from your total.
So far I have done okay. I reached the second level today and well, I guess that makes me not the new guy anymore.
A couple of decent ones
Can Terrorism be considered a legitmate means of warfare?
Why do Americans hate Socialism so?

How do you feel about toast? Be honest.
There seems to be no end of subjects that people ask questions about. From silly to serious, this site is like the ultimate one minute forum site. One hit answer and you are out of there. Or you can linger and make comments on other answers or your own.
If I get my nerve up, there is one question I have been chewing on for several days now. I thought about it but could only come up with the one answer I had right from the beginning
Just what do you suppose might go through your mind if you were standing buck naked at the Bus Stop in wing tips and argyle socks?
My Answer - Well the other day I thought I probably should have worn warmer socks.
