Wearing a dress and singing “dancing queen” in a biker bar.

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought , I think you misunderstood the question, you have to NOT LIKE what you’re doing. ,..

CWOTUS's avatar

I have a list of people whom it would be my gleeful misfortune to murder. Slowly. I really don’t want to. Please don’ you t’row me in de briar patch!

Mantralantis's avatar

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought – Ha! That really is a good one.

Deliberately humiliate myself in public.

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

@boxer3 FOR THE LAST TIME I WILL NOT DO THAT WITH YOU!!! STOP ASKING

@Mantralantis Thanks! Hope you are enjoying Fluther.

GabrielsLamb's avatar

@digitalimpression You actually know someone you would want to make THAT happy?

@anuf I’m really good at making myself look bad publically anyway. I think it’s genetic?

My answer… At this point in life… Not very much honestly.

*I don’t know anymore I like that much anymore.

But that being said… I just changed an answer for CW grammar issues

Mantralantis's avatar

@digitalimpression – Eww! Gross! Haha!

Mantralantis's avatar

@digitalimpression – Um, know…thank God. Its just a qeustion really.

Blackberry's avatar

Taking it in the butt.

gailcalled's avatar

@GabrielsLamb: It’s “pubicly,” please. And what does that omnipresent * signify?

I cannot imagine such a scenario. But I guess that I would pick a beloved person up at the Albany airport after dark on a winter’s night.

GabrielsLamb's avatar

@gailcalled Thanks sorry They are typo’s not stupidity I promise. It was also supposed to say “anyONE I like anymore” but I messed that up too. I’m a bad typist at best.

Mantralantis's avatar

I was just forced to edit my qeustion…AGAIN!! Jeez, what’s wrong with this site. Am I that hard to understand. Jeez, louise.

gailcalled's avatar

If you enjoy and take pride in being a sloppy writer, find another site. Proofreading isn’t all that difficult.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Writing Guidelines.
“While these rules may seem strict and arcane, it’s imperative to keeping the level of discourse at the highest quality.
Please give us your very best efforts, and don’t take it personally if you have a question pushed to editing to fix some typos. We’re sticklers.”

Mantralantis's avatar

I suppose some of you are NOT sticklers for sending such comments in a PM though are you?

Mantralantis's avatar

@gailcalled – What?! Am I supposed to be writing a novel here or something?!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I mean, the writing guidelines.. and the statement that I posted… are available for anyone to read. Not only available, but suggested. I was just trying to help, but whatever.

Mantralantis's avatar

@ANef is Enuf – So where did I go wrong then, you tell me?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Mantralantis I didn’t mod you, so I’m not even sure. I’d guess it was for an excessive use of capital letters and you had a misspelling in the original question, if I remember correctly.
We all have to follow the same rules. I’m not sure what to tell you. It’s not personal.

linguaphile's avatar

I like the question, so to get back on track…

The worst thing I could do would be to go back to where I was 1 year ago. That’d make someone very happy, but I’d be thoroughly miserable!

Mantralantis's avatar

Capital letters!? Oh, my lord in heaven!

Mantralantis's avatar

Behold! Loosen the neckties of all your tissue-boxed rules! Haha.

GabrielsLamb's avatar

@Mantralantis Nobody despises “boxed rules” more than I do but if you stick around for a while and try, you’ll find this to be the best community of people on the net. The best people demand the best from the company they keep. If it were anywhere else in the world, I would have said go piss up a rope these particular people deserve better so.

Try and I promise you will have fun here.

tinyfaery's avatar

Cooking. She’d never do that to herself, though.

Mantralantis's avatar

@GabrielsLamb – Sometimes I must speak my mind when I feel it counts but at the moment its actually a strange mix of fun and being annoyed at the same time. But being asked to edit your qeustion, more than once mind you, for no clear enough reason, is enough to be annoyed AND insulted at the same time. Thats not fun. It’s not all “best people” as you may think. Please don’t repress yourself.

MRSHINYSHOES's avatar

Doing anything that goes below my moral standards, and my standards are pretty high.

Mantralantis's avatar

For everyone that didn’t DISSECT my question and answered it with hilarious and interesting comments, I thank you.

Bellatrix's avatar

I think being filmed doing pretty much anything would be my worst nightmare. I also don’t like having my photo taken. I am really very camera phobic and have been for years. I would do it though if it was important to someone I love.

When I was studying, I had to do a piece to camera and I honestly thought I would vomit.

Or walking along the edge of a cliff or a glass floor in a tall building. (Why would anyone want a glass floor!) I would probably have to crawl across the glass floor, but I would do it if the person really needed me to.

Defacating on myself.

@Mantralantis Is it so hard to not be sloppy?

JilltheTooth's avatar

@FutureMemory : Apparently it is, for the younglings. Or the Nooblings. Whatever the appropriate designation is.

digitalimpression's avatar

@GabrielsLamb I’ve been lucky enough in my life to know several people whom I would eat poo for at the drop of a hat if that’s what had to be done.

gailcalled's avatar

@Mantralantis: With great restraint, I won’t edit this for usage, punctuation or grammar:

But being asked to edit your qeustion, more than once mind you, for no clear enough reason, is enough to be annoyed AND insulted at the same time. Thats not fun. It’s not all “best people” as you may think. Please don’t repress yourself.

I repeat myself; why would you stay at a site that you find both annoying and insulting?

I might make you happy, briefly, by answering a question that I have to read twice in order to understand. Who gains? (I won’t use the Latin. Yes, I will. “Qui bono”?)

digitalimpression's avatar

@Mantralantis The question made perfect sense to me from the jump.. not sure what happened there.

FutureMemory's avatar

Putting the thread back on track:

If you had to make someone you know happy by doing something you didn’t like, what would be your worst case scerario?

Going out for drinks and a steak dinner after being baptized at a local church gathering.
All 3 activities would be completely foreign to me.

Mantralantis's avatar

@digitalimpression – Thanks. Obviously I’m not sure what happened either, digital. I think I make myself pretty clear on how anyone can understand my qeustions.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Really @Mantralantis , you don’t know what happened? Maybe not if you don’t have a spellcheck. Firefox has a pretty good one built right in that helps you avoid problems like your misspelling of the word “questions”. It helps me out most of the time, but of course some will always slip through.

Blackberry's avatar

@FutureMemory I don’t get it…..lol.

FutureMemory's avatar

@Blackberry I’ve never had a drink in my life, and I’ve been vegetarian for 22 years. You already know about my atheism :)

Blackberry's avatar

@FutureMemory That’s some conviction you have there. O.O Admirable.

Ela's avatar

Out of the current 43 answers given I’m counting 12 that actually answered the original question….....

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Gotta love the Social section.

linguaphile's avatar

@EnchantingEla And for a great question, too! And here I go again—

I would make my mom really happy if I moved closer to where she lives, but I can’t—Where she lives, there aren’t any jobs in my field at all. Giving up everything I’ve trained, studies, prepared and worked for would probably be one of the worst things to ask me to do.

augustlan's avatar

As a mod, I really wish folks wouldn’t publicly nit-pick new members about their errors. Please, guys… be nice. Flag it and resist the urge. Thank you.

Ela's avatar

[off topic] Love your mask @augustlan!!

augustlan's avatar

@EnchantingEla Thanks, love. Jeruba costumed my “A” for me. :)

Blueroses's avatar

I’m with @Bellatrix about hating camera lenses on me but I’d suck it up and make a special exception if it would make the right person happy. I’d also probably try to at least act like I enjoyed eating tofu <shudder>.

Ela's avatar

This will probably get modded but I honestly don’t care..
I’m sad she quit…I hope everyone is happy now.

don’t get much of shittier than that… IMO
