get me back on board

Tomorrow. Once again, I apologize to everyone who has donated to Spirit of America by accepting my offer for post requests and questions answered. It's been a bit of a crazy week here, but I do hereby promise that tomorrow you will find all the answers to the burning questions asked (up to 100) and I will also begin the process of writing posts for everyone who paid for and suggested a specific topic. I thank you for your patience - but most of all, I thank you for your generosity. Please don't forget the drive for 50k. Thanks.


I'm in for $100 regardless of how many you get through. It's not like you've been slacking off.

Same for me w/the $150 matching pledge, even if you don't make it to 150 answers anytime soon. ;-)

I'd hate to find myself proven wrong as to how many you'd answer, and have it be too late to make the donation (and have it count for the drive, at least!).

Besides, the quality of answers so far are worth at least $1.50 each (assuming you only make it to 100...).

Sh*t Michele,

What do you have to apologize for? My $50 for the questions and $50 for the post is in, whether you get to writing them up or not. You've gone above and beyond as anyone who's moved themselves would know (Fortunately, I've only experienced it once, in 6 moves since I left the Navy)

Concentrate on yourself and your family during this high stress period (Next to loss of a child, husband or job, moving and buying a new house is the highest in measured stress levels). Us stalkers, er, fans will understand.

Question the first:

Why is it the world never rememebers the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-schplenden-schlitter-crasscrenbon-fried-digger-dingle-dangle-dongle-dungle-burstein-von-knacker-thrasher-apple-banger-horowitz-ticolensic-grander-knotty-spelltinkle-grandlich-grumblemeyer-spelterwasser-kurstlich-himbleeisen-bahnwagen-gutenabend-bitte-ein-nuernburger-bratwustle-gerspurten-mitz-weimache-luber-weimache-luber-hundsfut-gumberaber-shoenendanker-kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm?

Question the 2nd:

Wenn ist das Nunstuck git und Slotermeyer?

(OK, here's the answer)

Ja! Beiherhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt gersput!

Nice try, Charlie, but I stopped taking questions days ago.

Well, the 2nd one was clearly a freebie, since its the World Funniest Joke.

And I suppose the first one may as well go unanswered, and quite fittingly so!
