Not a big meateater tbh, I don’t go for red meat really so I will leave those off.
1.Turkey
2. Gammon
3. Chicken.

Would usually go for a veggie option though, sorry if this is an unsatisfactory answer.

Hello @anon89873996

Could you rank the following flashing lights in order of preference?

a) A Lighthouse (not technically flashing, but appears to be from a distance)
b) A flashing green man at a pelican crossing
c) A flashing amber light as you wait to drive across a pelican crossing
d) Strobe lighting on TOTP
e) The Kanye West song
f) Flashing lights on an emergency vehicle.

Flashinglight, suppose for a second that your house was ransacked by thugs, your family was tied up in the basement with socks in their mouths, you try to open the door but there’s too much blood on the knob…

…what was your favourite book as a teenager and what do you think of it now?

Originally, I came to the boards through the actual DiS website and I used to post sporadically about 5-7 years ago (I don’t recall what username I had). I ended up coming back because I wanted to get back in touch with an old friend who I didn’t have any current contact for but I knew they had been a DiSer. We carried on talking through the DMs here, I started lurking a bit and then began posting.

I would just like to point out I did NOT click my own AMA in the OP.

In the film Toy Story, Buzz Lightyear initially believes he is a real space ranger and not a toy, and yet he freezes in place when Andy enters the room. Why does he do this?

Hey jazzy, I am not particularly well-travelled so I don’t have a big pool to choose from. I am going to say Manchester: I lived there briefly, it has a couple of my all time favourite venues (The Deaf Institute and Salford Sacred Trinity Chapel), some good little shops and some awesome places to eat.

Quite like the coffee one, it is a nice change from some of the other more common flavours/textures that you get with chocolates.

Are you keeping a tally of the answers for this question, ttf?
