» The most childish thing you've done as an adult

adults playing childish wars
First the adult stuff, before I get to the childish part: my parents bought a new house last year, its garden slopes down a little and downhill lives their somewhat unfriendly neighbour. When the house was constructed 20 years ago, a pipe was installed wich diverts our rain water to the (then bare) land downhill. It's a plastic tube with a diameter of roughly 15 cm and it ends where the slope increases to a 45° angle on the land of mr. Friendly. Right behind it, an old oak tree (on his land), behind that, his swimming pool.
Please note that this setup for a water system is very commom in the region, and meant to avoid inundating lower land with mudslides and enabling the lower person to collect the rain water for irrigation purposes. Also, our pipe was there before his house or his pool were built. The oak also rather liked the abundant water supply in the otherwise rather dry region.

This set-up is however what started the childisg war between mr. Friendly and my father.
Mr. Friendly comes round to our house (to welcome us to the neighbourhoud, we fools tought at first), but quickly demands we remove the pipe, as he fears it will undermine his oak, which will then fall onto his swimming pool, which would be a disaster since his grandchild is coming to visit and might at the time be swimming in it and be killed by the falling tree.

And argument ensued in which my father tried to convince the low living creature that century old oaks do not tend to fall over overnight because of a little water; that the situation has been as it is from long before he purchased the house and seemed to have been unproblematic during all that time; and finally that it was after all mr. Friendly's tree. If he was so concerned about harm it could do, he would simply cut it down. (upon which he was kicked in the leg under the table by my mother, who didn't want the tree to unblock their sight on the lowlife's house.)

However, no reason was to be found, upon which my father exclaimed the now immortal line: "Fine. If you want to act so childish, I'll give you what you want and cut the pipe. But if you ever set one step in my garden again I'll set loose the dogs."

Que an hourlong search with our sixth sense to locate the pipe, 3 hours of digging it up, one of cutting it and two more to distract it to a spot in our garden where we could use the water anyway.

...and finally: 10 minutes of carefully placing the cut off end of the pipe at 20 cm of the border between mr. Friendly and our garden, at such an angle it seems to be purposedly placed there to direct its muddy waters all over his garden gnomes. We so hope he's going to call the police to it, only to be able to say "this piece of rubble? Must've forgotten to clean it up. Did he really call you guys up for that?"

» The thing I've been most ashamed of doing with a penis

Not me but my whole country
Every year, Van Dale, Belgiums most respected dictionary, elects the 'Word of the Year'. The winner for 2008 is 'swaffelen'.

It's a verb which means "to delibarately swing a penis against a person or object, with the objective of arousing oneself or another person."

Just imaging hearing that on the morning news while living there and you know why I haven't left my room since. If one of you could e-mail me some food rations, it's be much apreciated.

Proof on this link: woordvanhetjaar.vandale.nl/

(I've tried running the definition through Babelfish, but was utterly disappointed by their refusal to translate the word 'geslachtsdeel'. It's the most polite and SFW term for 'male genitalia'... And what the fish are bindweeds???)

» My sex misconceptions

how many again?
"Up until the age of 12 I thought that women had 3 completely seperate holes with a gap between each. The front (for wee), the middle (for sex) and the back (anus)."

unfortunately, there's more where that came from...

» I don't understand the attraction

What people want:
- a nice conversation with their friends
- a lovely alcoholic beveredge of their choice, served in the right glass, at the right temperature and accompanied by their favourite kind of nut/chip/olive/tapas
- their favourite music playing in the background
- comfy chairs
- safety and no fine for drunken driving
- a clean toilet
Where to get it: at home.

Instead, people seems to prefer pubs to fulfill the above-mentioned needs, yet this is what they get:

- a semi-dark room filled with smoke and other undefined but horrible smells
- either badly served foamless beer or sour wine in a glass that still has the previous girls lipstick on it
- a ruined voice and ears due to a failed attempt at conversation over the loud and obnoxious music.
- wobbly barstools
- the risk of ending up either dead (because some drunk crashed into your car) or fined (for drunken driving), or both (in case you drunkenly fell off a wobbly barstool)
- peanuts that have been in closer contact with the toilet than you'd ever want to be yourself.

Seriously, can someone please explain me what is so good about pubs that you'd be willing to put up with all that for?
