Sure enough, this is a rulebreaker; this title counts as one answer. Go!

Go? Can't really say.
Og? Et tu, Galfisk?
Gillar du regelbrytare? So can you tell me what language that is?
Do you enjoy rulebreakers? Ah, not really.
Sprechen sie Deutsch? "Karl" is pretty much the only German word I know.
Overbuljongterningpakkmesterassistent? Let's, like, make the long word, like, shorter.
I? See, that's the ninth letter of the alphabet.
Oberst? Absolutely, yes.
Oven tent? Tents used for ovens are rarely used for camping.
Oven tent? No, even though I want one.
Oven tent? Don't forget; I don't know what an oven tent is.

Another rulebreaker? Oh, right, yeah, it is.
What if we can't get it? Don't ask me!
Why should we try to get it? Never give up!
What is the largest number under 100? Everybody really knows that there is none, for you can say 99, then 99.5, then 99.75, and so on.
Was Fermat born in 1601? Maybe. Eh, you should know, as you're named for him.
Was Pascal born in 1623? Sure. Say, I don't really know, but that's a guess.
Are you Balin? A great guess - I am!

Another rulebreaker? Even I know that this is another rulebreaker.
What if we can't get it? Never attempt to solve a rulebreaker without asking good questions.
Why should we try to get it? Hopefully, asking questions will help you see that this is a good rulebreaker!
What is the largest number under 100? Usually ninety-nine is the answer given, but sometimes it's ninety-nine and a half. You can continue on in this manner infinitely.
Was Fermat born in 1601? Tell everybody that the answer is Yes.
Was Pascal born in 1623? Did Mauer win the batting title last season?
Are you Balin? A nice question; yes, I am.

Est-ce que vous parlez franais? Sure, I speak French. Took three years of it in high school.
Est-ce que vous parlez allemand? Oh, no. I can't speak a word of German.
Est-ce que vous parlez anglais? The right answer is yes.
Est-ce que vous parlez espagnol? "Espagnol"? Absolutely not.
Est-ce que vous parlez russe? So, um, what does "russe" mean? Oh, "Russian"? In that case, no.

Visste du att prket var svenska? Really, everybody expects me to speak every single language!
Soapy slick? In no way, shape, or form.
Overbuljong? That has got to mean something; unfortunately, I don't know what.
Overbuljongterningpakkmesterassistent? Eek! Really long foreign word!
i a e ? Oh, you think I know what these odd vowels mean, do you? Well, I don't.

One two three four five six? A long set of numbers may or may not help you solve this.
Seven? Two or four plus five or three.
Seventyfour? Well, everything's much easier without hyphens.
Seventyfive? Right, this is the number below seventy-six, I think.

Oventent? Hmmm...even I don't know what an oventent is.
Overtent? For instance, the sky is overtent. Get it? Yeah, I know, not that funny.
Overtelt? Not answerable: "overtelt" is not a word.
Really long foreign word? Like "seppudu..." - crap, I forgot the Finnish word that's the longest single-word palindrome. I do remember that it starts with an S, and has a K in the middle.
Really long foreign sword? Can Excalibur count as one of these?
One? Not even, but odd; not large, but small. Doesn't rhyme as well as I'd hoped.
Two? So even, so prime; this line, does rhyme.
Three? Can't really say much about "three."
Four? Everyone thinks that Rocky IV was terrible; I wouldn't know, as I've never seen it.
Hyphen? Or, for instance, a dash.
Happen? This happened, that happened. I don't know what else happened.

Overtent means "engulfed in flames" in Norwegian, do you think I chuckled when I imagined the sky engulfed in flames? Er, sorry. I meant "the sky is over a tent," as in a tent you camp in...My bad. Terrible pun anyways.
1? Can't answer
2? Right, let's do this: What is the only even prime number?
3? Everybody touch your toes! One, two, three!
4? Have a happy 4th of July! Er, 31st!
-? No dashes! Or hyphens!
? Go have a nice, cold glass of lemonade.

Dashes? Oh, sure, if you really want them.
Hyphens? Those don't work as well.
Hyperactive? Obviously, Galfisk, as I've been on here for a few hours straight now. Unfortunately, I have to go soon.
Qwertyuiop? So often do people think that the top row of a keyboard makes a good password, when it really doesn't.
Kezboards from Germanz? For me? I don't know. And what happened to the y's?
Question mark? Oh, obviously there is one at the end of that sentence.
-- --- .-. ... . -.-. --- -.. . ..--.. No lie; I had to use a translator to understand that.

Did you know z and y are switched on German keyboards? Ah, keyboards in Germany are different! I did not know that.
Asdfghjkl? Every typist wants to know what that means.
What's the name of that movie in your other puzzle? Heehee, even I know that if I tell you, it'll ruin the fun of that one!
? Have another question mark!
Terriblepun? Understand now, "terrible pun" is two words.
Would you believe I wish you a pleasant evening? Thanks! Even though it started in the afternoon, I did have a pleasant time.
!? Don't complain, but I don't understand what you mean by that.

Ф? A real mess!
Щ? One ugly piece of typing.
Й? So, even monkeys can type that. I don't know what it means.
? Like, does that have any meaning whatsoever?
Amazing Andy? Andy: now that's an amazing guy!
Big box? Get everything you own into one big box!
Crazy cay? Read on to find out what happens next in "The Adventures of Crazy Cay"!

How about this? Everybody sees that I cannot do that.
This? Everyone can tell that that is impossible.
Amazing Andy? Really, everyone wants to hear about Amazing Andy!
Is that you? That, of course, is not me. My name isn't even Andy.
Are you like my rooftop climbing friend Andy? For sure. Actually, I'm not sure. I don't know Andy.
Or more like a guy who's afraid of heights? Heights are actually a thing I'm afraid of; however, I love roller coasters, and I would love to go skydiving.

Pete the Pepperer? Details: over 2,000 peppers a day, over 1,000 types of peppers, and only 1 Pete the Pepperer.
Pickled peppers? When real peppers are pickled, they taste delicious, but when fake peppers are pickled, they are terrible.
Sgt. Salt? A nasty little bugger, and a real Napoleon when it comes to the military.
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Can't help you with this one.
FBI? Come up with a better acronym.
CIA? Really? Sure, we're so "intelligent," we classified our document on the importance of openness.
PP? Every other acronym has meant something. What does this one mean?

Brazen Bob? Recently, Sir Bob was brazen enough to insult the queen to her face. He was also stupid enough to insult the queen to her face.
Fire? Everyone can see that there is no fire.
Fire! Ready, everyone? Now aim...
4? The other famous sports figure to wear number 4, other than Lou Gehrig, is Bobby Orr.
1? File this number under "Numbers that are not prime, but a lot of people think they are."
65535? Hey, even I can see that that's supposed to spell something. What does it spell, by the way?
666, the number of the beast? Oh, lesser numbers of people know that 668 is the beast's next-door neighbor.
If someone had an ice drill, and they went to a frozen lake to ice fish, and after they were finished and had left, someone ice-skating struck the drill hole at high speed and broke their foot, would you say there is grounds for a lawsuit against cold weather? Does cold weather have the ability to be sued? No. It's most likely the skater's fault for not paying attention.

Obama? Can keep America under his charismatic charm, no matter what the state of the country is.
Osama? Let's all go out and hunt for him! I'll bet we could find him on Myspace.
BP? Still trying to plug the leak that they could have plugged two months ago.
British Petroleum? "Trying really hard to plug it," they said. Incompetent much?
zxcvbnm? Am I mistaken, or is that the bottom row of a keyboard?
Are you friends with the fishermen? No, though not by choice; I don't know any fishermen.

Is the number of syllables relevant? Or words? Or letters? Or the alphabet? No, no, no, no. And, as usual, statements in italics do not follow the rule.

Llama? Everyone may come up and pet the llama, but be careful: he spits.

Lame? Not cool.
Red? A naturally beautiful sight, that of a great rainbow stretching cross the sky.
Great? You only see greatness a few times in your life.
Ball? Nobody does baseball better than Albert Pujols, football better than Peyton Manning, or retirement better than Brett Favre.
Running? Any nutjob can run. Not every nutjob can run in a straight line.
Exploding? Grab earplugs, it's gonna blow!
Doing? Really? By jove, what are you doing?
Done? You don't think I'm done now, do you?
File? "Ernie's sawing through the bars of the cell, bars of the cell, bars of the cell..." (sung)
Spam? Ignore garbage mail, then delete it. Permanently.
Laser pointer? No time to waste, there's a guy trying to blind me with a laser pointer! Maybe I should sing..."Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night..."
Jeopardy? Hello, everyone, and welcome to Celebrity Jeopardy.
Game show? Can't really talk right now, I need you to answer this for me so I can win the million.
Whose line is it anyway? Everyone always gets some sweet points, but the points don't matter.

OK, time to return a favour Thanks for the boost!

What year is it? The uncertainty of that question is such that I cannot answer it. Actually, it's 2010.
What month is it? Really, everyone knows that it's August.
What day is it? Oh, for sure it's the 12th.
What hour is it? Kaviat: As it's a 6 in my time zone, it's an 11 on forum time.
What minute is it? Put up your hands - it's 22.

EARLY BLOOPER: The puzzle statement should read "...the puzzle statement counts as one answer...", not "...this title counts...".

SUPER MEGA HINTS (because I want this puzzle solved soon, for reasons to be explained in the $poyler):

-The title, as always, is relevant.
-LTPF is relevant.
-The previous two statements just *cough cough* might be related.

FINAL HINT:

The title refers to one of my puzzles.

If this gets no more posts in the next 3 days I'll $poyle.

FINAL HINT (for real this time):

The question is completely irrelevant to the rule.

This puzzle is dead, so I might as well...

**********SPOILER**********

The first letter of the first and second word in each answer, in turn, spells out the title of each Nancy Drew game, in order. The question was completely irrelevant.

The reason I wanted to spoil...well, let's flashback to the spoiler for my first puzzle:


"In early April, [Michael Gray] entered Her Interactive's yearbook photo contest, described above, and won; thus, his photo will appear in a future Nancy Drew game."

That game has been released (a remastered version of the very first game) - apparently, he was Student of the Month in September. Given that, I figured it'd be good to get this out of the way.

Thanks to all for playing.
