The Lightning Round is simple: I have to answer every question, so long as it's off-topic and not one of the exceptions (very personal stuff or work-related things).

When I click "upload music" and select a folder, it displays an animated uploading icon and says "added 0 of 24 tracks." But then I leave and come back an hour later and the tracks still haven't uploaded! What do I do?

I'm not sure what you're referring to.
Outta my way, Gyorkass!

My future sister in law lives in the Baltimore/DC area, so I have a feeling I'm going to be traveling there fairly often. What are your recommendations for microbreweries to tour/visit/drink their beer? I bought some DuClaw beer last time I went and I liked it, and obviously, Dogfish Head is a big one, but any other suggestions?

When you use the word libertarian what do you mean? Do most people mean the same thing? Do you split libertarians into right and left? Or libertine and non libertine?

On a very basic fundamental level, those that believe in personal sovereignty.

I have a splinter near my cuticle and it's almost popping out. Should I break the skin and dig it out to stop the pain, or deal with the pain for a few more days until it finally crawls out?

I'd just pull it out.
I'm impatient.

Other than in the idiom, have you ever actually heard someone say "to-mah-to"?
Dan Szymborski

I have, because I know people from England
but I've sure as hell never heard anyone say po-TAH-to, so let's call the whole thing off

If Hilary wins the presidency and all along it was just a ruse for her to get back at Bill by having sex in the Oval Office......and she chose you as her version of Monica Lewinski...would you do it?
Dan Szymborski

That's kind of a weird question, but while I would admire the deviousness and high-concept of the plan, I'm not into power.
