    Is the word "anymore" a proper word, or is it a common mistake like "alot"?

    In Spanish, vowel abbreviations are doubled, so "EEUU" means "Estados Unidos", or "United States".

    I want to like Futurama but I didn't like the pilot episode. Does it get better? (like 30 Rock did)

    Do you mean the Season 1, Episode 1 pilot, or the re-release pilot (after Fox un-cancelled them)?

    At any rate, different people have different forms of humor. I, personally, think that Futurama is possibly the greatest comedy series created in the 90s, and it is still my favorite comedy show to this day. They have a lot of nerdy humor and "smart jokes", and inside jokes for people who have read famous books or seen famous movie/TV series, like Star Wars. It's not slapstick humor; if you think that The Three Stooges and Beevis and Butthead are funny, then you probably won't enjoy Futurama.

    But Futurama has a very large fanbase, and it remains one of the most popular comedy series today. To understand some pop culture jokes (such as "Good news, everyone!"), you have to have seen Futurama. I think if you watch a few more of the episodes, you'll be able to determine if you like it or not.

    I found out today that the answer for the NHL is no. The Kings are currently tied for the best playoff start at 10-1, so any champion would have at least 1 loss.

    Does anyone know about MLB or NBA?

    The NBA I can say for sure is no, and as for the MLB, I think the answer is also no, but I don't really have any proof to back it up.

    Pre-1969, the only playoffs were the World Series. Teams that swept were:
    - 1914 Boston Braves
    - 1927, 1928, 1932, 1938, 1939, & 1950 New York Yankees
    - 1954 New York Giants
    - 1963 L.A. Dodgers
    - 1966 Baltimore Orioles

    During the single-round division playoff era (1969-93), the teams that swept both their league playoffs and the World Series were:
    - 1976 Cincinnati Reds
    - 1989 Oakland Athletics

    I believe it definitely does. In my opinion, seasons 3 and 4 are the best, and then the movies aren't so great. I've only seen a couple of the newer episodes, but they seem to be better than the films were. I think the pilot episode was a little weak, but it definitely gets better in my opinion.

    Ah, ok, thanks. I take it that since they starting having the LDS, LCS and WS no one has swept them all.

    Interesting. I assumed that someone in one of those 3 leagues would've swept their way through the playoffs.

    In the Princess Diaries movie, when the queen first told Amelia "Princess of Genovia" before Amelia said shut up,
    was there an error? It sounded like she she didn't say "of Genovia" but something completely different.

    Well, since everyone is annoyed by different things, there are only annoying people if you allow yourself to be annoyed.

    If I had a standard deck of 52 playing card and shuffled it thoroughly, what are the chances of 2 cards of my choice (suits don't count. Only the value of the cards. Like 10 and 5 or Ace and King) appearing right next to each other when I look through the deck?

    I could be completely screwing this up, but I think it should be something like 1/13 x 1/13 which would come out to be that 1/169 times you try this it will work.

    Seriously, careful on taking my word for it.

    I think it's actually 1 in 13. Because when you look through the deck, you will always find one of the cards at some point, because it's in the deck, so the probability of finding the first card doesn't matter. The probability that's relevant is the likelihood of the other card you want being next to the first card. There's four cards of each value in the deck, so the likelihood of whatever card you want being next to the first card is 1 in 13.

    For example, you look through the deck and find a king. The chance of an ace being next to it is 1 in 13.

    I hope that makes sense. I have a nasty feeling that it doesn't.

    Closer, but still wrong.
    You will find a "first" correct card 8 times.

    Could you please explain this mechanic for my sleep deprived mind? I legitimately forgot what I was supposed to be doing.
