Wacky advice from us!

    mega1posted 7 years ago

    I'm planning an advice hub where somehow or other people will ask advice - the advice will be wacky - I think it would be great if I could get one or two other hubbers to also contribute their advice (on the same questions) and so instead of it just being my wacky advice, it could be two or three different wacky advices!  yea?  If you're interested in being an advice giver, email me.  If you have a pressing question you need some wacky advice on, ask it in this thread! 

    I'm taking today off, but will get back to this tomorrow - this gives you time to really think up some good ones!

    Have a great spring day!

        you have wacky questions, we have wacky advice - we just published our third hub on this -  Wacky Advice for Your Perfectly Wacky Predicaments -Week Three

        and while it isn't always advice, it is usually our opinions.  So between GlassSpider and Mega1 you can just imagine what kind of answers people get! big_smile

        So, your question is - What should you do when "my husband gets soooooo tired of my questions when hes trying to fall aslep after working 10 hours and then "killing enemy soldiers" for another 6...  " ?

        That's a very good wacky question.  Our first!  We will get on it right away - tomorrow probably because we will need to really think over our answers.  Of course, you know you are going to get entirely different advice from Glass Spider and me - we are so very different!  So tune in tomorrow here in this thread - we'll let you know when the Wacky Advice hub is up and running!

        until then - keep those wacky questions coming people!

    Are you talking about collecting questions and then answering them in ONE hub, or ...? How is what you are suggesting different from the current "Question" option people have here, where anyone and everyone who is willing supplies an answer?

    Just curious, not antagonistic.  Would like to understand better what you are thinking.

    1. mega1 profile image79
      mega1posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      these questions would be purely for fun - wacky questions that deserve wacky answers, nothing serious.  Glass Spider and I would have a lot of fun responding in great silly detail to a silly question.  I guess we would start with one Wacky Question and then people could leave more questions here or in the comments on that hub and we could answer one or two or three more in another hub and it would just go until people get sick and tired of it.

    I feel like we're a couple little kids with a lemonade stand by the curb, only it's like 2:00 pm on a Tuesday when everybody is at work and we just can't even sell one class of warm lemonade.  So then somebody's mother goes and gets some ice to put in it and somebody else brings some cookies out to give away and they tell us to be patient.  So then we're still waiting all grubby and tired and it's 5:00 and finally some dads come driving by and take pity on us.  We end up with a profit of $3.00 and here comes the ice cream truck, so you know where our profit is going!   That's exactly how I feel.  I can hear the ice cream truck music, now - "Old McDonald had a Farm.  EEE III  EEEE III  OHHHH"

    with all these big budget films being released in 3-d, is it possible all films will be in 3-D someday? is this the future of movies?  after all, when talkie movies were first introduced back in the 20's, it didn't take long before all films started to become talking movies, to where silent films became the thing of the past.  then when color films were introduced, it started to slowly become a standard to where almost all modern films are in color these days.

    i guess what I'm trying to ask is, do you think 3-d is the next evolution of films to where ALL movies will eventually be in 3-D format?

  46. Stevennix2001 profile image83
    Stevennix2001posted 7 years ago

    i say that also because of the new revolutionary 3-d televisions being released.  therefore, it's looking to be more of a possibility than ever before.

        yeah, but we're still years away from that though.  besides, with the new 3-d tv's being released and more big budget movies wanting to cash in on the 3-d gimmick.  it's starting to become more of a possibility now.

  47. mega1 profile image79
    mega1posted 7 years ago

    that's a super question.  and I will look into it - off the top of my head, just because nobody is really listening right now -  this is what I think of when I think of all 3-D movies -

    I think in the way, way future we will have little entertainment implants (like memory receiving chips) inserted right into our brains and we can just close our eyes and be totally immersed into a movie (we will subscribe to these) sort of like virtual reality - sort of like that movie where the big corporations implant those devices in people?  Only we will pay for this and just go lie down and be IN the movie for an hour or two!  TOTAL IMMERSION!  3-D will probably be perfected to the point where people can participate somehow first, at the movie theater, before we get our "entertainment implants" 

    Similarly, we could play tennis with Venus and Serena or play soccer with our favorite team or some such with a sports chip implant. We could race cars, hunt down escaped criminals, solve mysteries etc. etc.  Good idea?  Ok - somebody will do it!
