My husband works at hungry howies. He gets min wage while in store. They have to CLOCK OUT for deliveries and gets $1 per delivery, plus tips

Thank you so much for answering! Sorry, I obviously can't count.

As for the drinking game. Take a drink when:

The FBI doesn't call for back up

Someone goes into a coma

A new character speaks and dies in the next scene

Claire gets into a car with a stranger

Someone says "death is beautiful" or "death is a gift" or "ultimate sacrifice." Some kind of death glorifying.

We used to drink when Joe typed furiously or slammed his computer closed but we have to work and be functioning.

Thanks for the Woman in Black suggestion, I'll check it out.

I am so thrilled about this AMA. My husband and I love this show and we don’t normally both enjoy the same things. Also, we’ve developed a pretty bad ass drinking game and any excuse to get drunk and try to remember lines of Poe is sure to be a good time. Ok questions time

1) How the hell can Joe last at least two days after getting stabbed twice and still manage to walk pretty easily?

2) Did you practice your furious typing often? The furious typing is my favorite part. I have no idea why. It cracks me up. What do you personally think about to make your hatred towards the keyboard so pronounced?

4) The Following is one of only a few new shows to be a breakout hit this year. What do you think it is about the show that has attracted (and kept) so many viewers?

5) Is the show going to branch out to other Romantic writers or just stick with Poe? I know you have no control over that, just curious. That part about the show has been a personal letdown to me. I know that network shows like to write to the dumbest person watching but the writings are used in such a superficial way, it’s kind of distracting.

6) I am secretly hoping that the point of the show is to develop a cult from the viewers. Like with subliminal messages. I mean, it would totally suck to be part of a cult and not even know but it would be one hell of a twist ending. I guess that isn’t really a question.

Also, it’s pretty critical but Starlee Kine’s recaps on Vulture are really, really hilarious. http://www.vulture.com/2013/04/following-recap-season-1-the-end-is-near.html

Thank you, can’t wait for the Finale, and good luck with the show!

I don't know if it's the same in Denmark, but I work with the homeless in Florida and a lot of our homeless that are not seeking stable housing (it's about 25% in our continuum) have simply stopped trying. We have those that have mental illnesses and such but due to foreclosures, job loss, cut in state aid, they've just come to the conclusion that the more they try the more they lose.

Do you see this among the homeless in your area that are no longer seeking housing?
