2013-12-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you and Ray King were trapped in a blender, how would you escape?
(bradleyankrom from NYNY)
I need some more context. Where is the blender? A standard kitchen? (Harry Pavlidis)
2012-12-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Let's say you're shrunk and placed in a blender next to Ray King. How do you escape?
(Billy from Ocean)
Is Ray King also shrunk to roughly the same size (or scale of size) as me? In either case, I would probably treat it as a hostage negotiation, with the unfortunate property of me being the hostage. (Russell Carleton)
2012-08-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)How would you get out if you were placed into a giant blender alongside Ray King?
(dipotonotdipoto from brooklyn)
I wouldn't. Why fight it? I'd be honored to make up some small part of a Ray King-based smoothie. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you get out if you were placed into a giant blender alongside Ray King?
(dipotonotdipoto from brooklyn)
I don't have a great answer for this, which makes me unqualified to work for Goldman Sachs (hooray!). But I will note that it took me Ray King's entire career, plus four years of inactivity, before I finally realized today that his name is Raking. Not quite Grant Balfour or Dave Heaverlo, but an underrated pitcher aptonym. (Sam Miller)
2012-08-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you get out if you were placed into a giant blender alongside Ray King?
(dipotonotdipoto from brooklyn)
I don't have a good answer for this, so I'm going to open it up to the audience... how would YOU get out if you were placed into a giant blender alongside Ray King? (Bradley Ankrom)
