For all you drummers out there, a clock that ticks with the sound of a drum, and then chimes each hour with a different drum solo, chosen by the clock's owner so they can recognise which solo is which hour. Not to be used any where near bedrooms, or any room in which you intend to be sane for any length of time.

       //Not to be used any where near bedrooms, or any room in which you intend to be sane for any length of time// I have the same issue with regular ticking clocks. They annoy incessently until I either take their batteries out, or break them mercilessly.

       Could you possibly say that they wound you up? Or made you a bit cuckoo? Or would you slap me for those awful puns? You're going to slap me aren't you?
quaero curvus, Aug 13 2005
  

       I'll slap you if you keep using bloody question marks all the time.

       be fair, he only uses one at a time, he is not the type that will add a question mark for every one he needs in a paragraph. For exapmle: //Could you possibly say that they wound you up? Or made you a bit cuckoo?? Or would you slap me for those awful puns??? You're going to slap me aren't you????// That is something that would make me slap someone for.

       True but it has a cumulative effect even when single ones are used.
pooduck, Aug 13 2005
  

       Well you can't help but use question marks when what you are doing is asking questions. Maybe I could used full stops, then one oversized compound question mark at the end. But that would have been poor grammar, and even more annoying.
quaero curvus, Aug 13 2005
  

       I s'pose you could stop asking questions...
pooduck, Aug 13 2005
  

       What, forever? How could you possibly never ask a question ever again? See! I just asked two without even realising! Or did I?

       //How could you possibly never ask a question ever again?//   

       Sit in a dentist's chair for eternity. With your mouth full of whatever-it-is they stick in there.

       But then you'd never say anything again. And you'd never get to annoy [pooduck] again.
quaero curvus, Aug 14 2005
  

       Perhaps [pooduck] should have simply told you to stop saying everything in the form of a question. And yes, for your information, I fully intend you to slap you at some point in the future.
hidden truths, Aug 14 2005
  

       Perhaps [pooduck] shouldn't put me in a position to ask questions then. And I'm sure fairly soon you can slap me.

       par-baked, methinks. I have had a few of these. The first one just stopped working. The next spontaneously combusted in the middle of a solo... The last one I had died in a hotel room in LA, in very mysterious circumstances. All I can say is that it involved a lemon and a red snapper fish and _someones_ vomit. You can't dust for vomit, you see?
Dub, Sep 10 2005
  

       You started the incessant question mark use before my anno, [quaero].
pooduck, Sep 10 2005
  

       Have we lost track of the idea here? What was the idea anyway? Are question marks contagious? Drums-Tick [+].
wagster, Sep 10 2005
  

       See! At least [wagster] agrees with my question mark use. Damn straight. I think it's about time all of our sentences ended with question marks, don't you?
quaero curvus, Sep 11 2005
  

       //I think it's about time all of our sentences ended with question marks, don't you?// Talk to the average teenager, and you'd think they did. AQI. Grrrr.
coprocephalous, Sep 12 2005
  

       Well I'm a teenager (For another 2 years, dammit), and I don't end all my sentences in question marks, do I? Oh wait...
