    I'll pick the one with whom I share two important things. (Well, they're important to me )

    The BBC's decision not to play 'Ding Dong, The Witch is Dead', which has made the charts here following the death of Margaret Thatcher:

    Showing proper respect
    Showing proper respect, but I still secretly wish they'd play it
    Rank cowardice
    Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!"

    An appreciation of trees and the movie Castaway.

    Misplaced propriety, though I find the response of requesting that song in Thatcher's honor to be a little...complacent.

    1) Am I being churlish?

    - Yes, you are, sekret Thatcher-/Major-/Blairite.
    - Nah.
    - Maybe.

    2)

    Neil Kinnock

    1. Maybe

    2. Michael Foot used to quote Gulliver's Travels, which made me like him a lot, but he was no leader.
    John Smith would have been a great PM.
    Neil Kinnock is mostly a prat.

    Not as pets () but which do you find more appealing:

    Puppies
    Kittens
    Lambs
    Polar bear cubs
    Baby tapirs

    Polar bear cubs, despite the cat obsession. ETA: Baby tapirs are very cute.

    as a name for a polar bear:

    Knut ()
    or
    Tosca?

    You got them both.

    Neither Knut nor Tosca really captures the appeal of the polar bear cub (or sentimental anthropomorphism as my ex-husband calls it)

    Which will die out first?

    Tigers
    Orang-utans
    Polar bears
    Black rhinos
    Something else magnificent

    Yes, I know scientists have their DNA, but........in fact all kinds of buts.

    Fair enough.

    1) The black rhinoceroses. Great minds think alike.
    2) I think every ice dancer should be granted a two-yell career allowance, but no more than that.

    snow leopards or clouded leopards?

    bad ideas:

    political ice theater
    or
    taking part in the Antarctic Ice Marathon?
