Behka’s Enquiring Minds Recap: Week of October 13 [OPINION]
I'm always looking for excuses to get a survey on the website - so you can get more points. I see what I do on the air as a way of conversing with you - but most of the time it's just me talking. So with our surveys, I ask, and you answer. Here's a look back at some of your answers for our questions - I couldn't possibly go through them all, but here's some of the ones that stood out. On Monday I asked you about aging. Which ages were your favorite, and what are you looking forward to about getting older?
Overall age 24. Well??? I am 35 and not wanting to think about getting any older... But I guess about 65.
That is true - I know I'm not looking forward to more ailments, but I am looking forward to the smarts that come with experience.
VERY AMBITIOUS. It would be awesome to rack up the triple digits.
I would like to be 25 again. I made some decisions then that I would probably change if I was given the chance.
On Tuesday, I talked about a your favorite commercials. Boyfriendo and his kids have a couple of them that we have to always stop at if they're on.
WHY CAN'T WE JUST GET IN THE RUNNING CAR?! And then, there's this:
We have to stop every time and sing along with that hold music. So I thought I'd ask you guys about your favorite commercials! Most of you had a pretty consistent favorite: The Geico Humpday Camel.
Most of you had different reasons for liking it, though.
Because he's cool!
I like it because it's funny, and doesn't need to be dirty.
I like it because my wife has camel lips.
Nope, I'm not gonna comment on that last one. No sirree.
During the day I stream your station in my office here in NJ. The adopted pet commercials you play are very funny.
Oh, awesome! I had no idea anybody off in New Jersey would be catching us, but hey, I'm all for it.
On Wednesday, I asked you about holidays. This week we had Columbus Day, and I was wondering why we even still celebrate it, really. So I was wondering about what holidays you'd like to create? Do you want a day off after the Super Bowl? What about the first day of school - a day off for the parents? What would you like to make a holiday?
The great Earthican tradition of Freedom Day from Futurama is celebrated by expressing one’s freedom any darn way you choose.
I love you.
It's times like this that I wish the polls and surveys weren't anonymous just so I could find you and give you a huge hug.
On Thursday I asked about movies - bad ones. How far into a movie do you have to be before giving up on it? Or will you watch the whole thing, regardless of how bad it may be? Will you ever walk out of a movie in a theater (since you paid and all)? Name some movies that were so bad you actually stopped watching it before the end.
I pay -I stay. Two-lane Blacktop with Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith was terrible. The film burned up at the end, something it should have done at the beginning.
I know what you mean, I feel like if I paid for that much entertainment I should get it, even if it's bad entertainment. I felt that way about Wild Wild West, that Will Smith movie. I wanted to leave so bad, but I just couldn't.
If watching a movie on tv, I usually know by the first 15 minutes if I'm going to watch it all. I have sat thru bad movies at a theater just because I paid for it and usually I am eating that expensive popcorn & coke so don't want to waste my money. Last bad one I sat thru was Cowboys vs. Aliens. It was pretty bad, but the popcorn was great!
Yeah, at home I'll shut something off within a half an hour if it's that bad. But hey, popcorn is delicious. Somehow it's just different at the movies.
Bad movies are like bad concerts, I don't care that I paid for it if it was that bad i'll leave. I'll give it at least halfway to catch my attention.
I don't know if I've been to a bad concert, but I must have. Maybe nothing's just coming to mind instantly, but yeah - the option to walk away is pretty strong when it's a movie like Waterworld (which I DID see in the theater, thank you very much).
Anyway, that's it for this week's Enquiring Minds. But, I'll have a bunch of brand new ones next week, so come back and take some more surveys. Make sure you go back and take any of the other surveys you may have missed and you'll get points to win prizes!
