This is my first rulebreaker. I will spoil it as soon as somebody ask a question whose answer is "Sherlock Holmes". There is no special reason for that other than I really like him.

P. S. Please don't ask too many questions at the time, because it isn't so easy to me to create an answer.

What do you think about the letter string "abcdefghijklmn"? about "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"?

What do you think about the letter string "abcdefghijklmn"? "Dnghdsgfsh" is the best letter string I have ever seen! It's fun, very amusing, I would say it's fu**ing eccentric, so damned cool.
about "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"? "Ezgfjadlshgdlasj" is a very good string, too.

Is the string "a" too short?
Do you like to talk about detectives?

Is the string "a" too short? "A" is not too short string, it can be very large sometimes. Some great things occupy only few cc's.
Do you like to talk about detectives? Eventually, just one barrel per day is enough. Two barrels per day are very good, but three or more bd are very bade, take care.

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.

Sorry, there was a typing error in my previous answer, it should be "very bad", not "very bade"

Who has been getting a lot of face time on the LTPF recently? ;) Ahoy, Dref! Your question is damned good! Here's one computer acronym: CD - "Compact Disc". BB I am. Hey there, could somebody make conclusions and solve this?

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain. I think that there was enormous amount of barrels needed to store few kiloliters. Barrel - eleven liters, drop - 1 cc, and now it isn't hard to calcualte the rest.
Drama, Info. Tech., or Electronics? I would choose electronics. Koreans used to prefer drama, but they turned to info. Brian likes tech and hates drama (at least I think so, correct me if I'm wrong).
Limited quantity. What about that? If you want to say that there's great deal but limited amount, every human should hurry up.
Limited quality. I think that quality is more important than quantity. There is God, and he'll give us enough. God thinks that every humen being is the same.

Cross posting alert... I noticed that, but thanks anyway.

Do you like puzzles? Yes, I do. But, I don't like every kind of puzzle. "Do it for yourself, go ahead, and everything will be all right", said Cesare. That means that I prefer puzzles I like, in my case that are story puzzles rather that these with, for example, one word as a statement.
Do you like to solve puzzles? That is correct. Basically, I'm spending much time on solving puzzles, doesn't that mean they're great? They are. Even cigarettes are not so good, cigarettes are making lungs bad, that's the reason I'm not smoking.
Do you like to host puzzles? You're asking THAT??? Be careful with questions. Dear Tommyp, you are doing a lot of good job in them, can't you imagine that I'm creating all this puzzle because I like it?

Dref
SH? Hello again, Dref. Nice to see you. I'm thankful to you and all other people for solving this bullshit :)

SS? You are all making a good progress, just go ahead. Sorry about waiting for my answers. Good job! But, these questions doesn't make any sense. However, you could ask such questions if you want, I'll answer on them, too.

Sorry for waiting, people, but I have to think a little before posting each answer.

What is the name of Sherlock Holmes? I.m sure that he has it. Seems funny, but that's the point of doing Baker Street puzzle. Huh! Hm... Coincidence? No, I don't think so.
"s. h. e. r. l. o. c. k. h. o. l. m. e. s."? a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a.

Watson? My dear fellow Watson... What would I do without him. Is there somebody who watched the movie "Without a clue"? My dear fellows, that movie is absoletely not true. No, it is not. NO. NO!!!!!!!!!!
do you know him? He is my best friend and my colleague. I can't do anything without him. I'm the best consulting detective on the world. He's the colleague of the best consulting detective on the world.

What is your name? Um... You can see my name on the blue headline of my posts. Do you think it's not noticable enough? If so, Dietmar should do something about it, don't ask me, ask him.

well it was worth trying :) It surely was :)

abcde? Express answer is always the best one.
fghij? Another letter string, very useless, especially because there is no good answer on it.
aeiou? "Enter this site and you'll never get out of it", don't you think so? :)
aaaaa? Everything posted in this post doesn't make any sense, but answers are here anyway.

Or long? This is much better, thanks. Though I can answer on everything, don't ask me bad (long) questions again, because they are very confusing.
