Title: Questions
Post by: Courtney on July 07, 2008, 07:29:35 AM
So we're learning quite a bit about each other in the How Old Were You thread, so I figured let's expand it a bit and just ask each other questions.

For example, I would ask a question.  You would answer it, with perhaps a bit of explanation or anecdote, then you would ask one.  Let's say you asked me "what's your favorite band?"  The post would go as such:

My favorite band is Travis.  The first song of theirs I ever heard was "Turn" and it's still my favorite and one of my favorite songs of all time.  I saw them in concert twice, years apart, and this most recent time, Fran Healy touched me.  AWESOME.

What's your favorite movie?

(I figured we'd start with an easy one.  Make it as personal or impersonal as you wish.)

My favorite car is MY CAR!! Booyah!! An 02 champagne Audi A6. Good gracious I love my car.

Do you play any instruments?

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: dignan on July 07, 2008, 07:36:42 AM
Sorta jumped the gun and answered Courtney, but I'll also answer Action Batch:

I play keyboard.  Poorly.  And guitar.  Poorly.  Heh, anyway, onto the movie question:


I could probably give a couple answers to that, so I will.  

My favorite movie from my childhood, and one of my first vivid theater experiences, is Raiders of the Lost Ark.  Now, I was kind of a giant wuss as a kid, and so it would seem that a movie where, at the end, a bunch of ghosts fly around and make Nazis (and a Frenchman) either blow up, deflate, or melt, would have given me nightmares.  For reasons I cannot possibly begin to fathom, that never was the case.  I loved that part, and was always completely fascinated with the special effects in that scene.  I would watch that movie over and over again once we got a VCR.  The fact that the rest of the movie is a pretty darn rollicking adventure helps too.  

Some of my favorite movies that I've discovered in more recent years are:
Casablanca
Shaun of the Dead
A Bug's Life
That's probably good for now.

It's summer, so I'm gonna make this summer related: What's your favorite Beach Boys song?  
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: RVR II on July 07, 2008, 07:39:37 AM
The remake of the Mama's & the Papa's 'California Dreamin'.. That's the ONLY song I like by the Beach Boys :speechless:

My favorite genre of Music is Hard Rock (including Alternative & Metal). What's yours?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Courtney on July 07, 2008, 07:59:59 AM
My favorite two favorite genres ever ever are probably mid-90s alt rock and the also 90s Lillith Fair era.  While my favorite artists tend to be more the folksy singer songwriter or indie rock stuff, there will always be a huge place in my heart for Toad the Wet Sprocket, Semisonic, Garbage, et al, and I will ALWAYS love Sarah McLachlan, Cree Summer,  Mazzy Star (who is probably in my top 3 favorite bands ever), etc.

Who was your first celebrity crush?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Action Batch on July 07, 2008, 08:05:39 AM
Duh, I'm a nerd. Carrie Fisher. I had a crush on Winona Ryder (Reality Bytes era), Kim Gordon (sorry Thurston she's just so hot), and then Fight Club came out and I fell in love with Helena Bonham Carter. The big tourist.

Actually it will be Comic Con this month.  I danced competitively up until I was 18, so my summers were owned by dance competitions and conventions, so I didn't get any "real" vacations then, and every vacay I've had since was with my family.

Hmm.. Biggest regret.. Probably getting my History degree.
It never helped me get a promotion at my old employer, and it hasn't been that useful in my Spanish services business :-\
And now have $45000 in student loans to repay :angry:

I really don't have any regrets but if there's something I should have done it's this.

Back when i was looking at colleges I went to Canterbury to attend their open day event. i was staying at a little guest house as was this really pretty girl from up North (Scunthorpe I seem to recall). Anyway we were going to look at different presentations for the college but we were done at around the same time and so, having many a free hour we wandered around the city together, and when it got late went back to the guest house and played scrabble for a few hours.

She was, in addition to being very pretty and Northern (lovely accent on a girl) very bright and funny to talk to. Anyway the evening was getting late and she said "well I'll be going to my room"

To which I replied "Oh OK, sleep well!"

The next day she was a little distant and it was only after we'd got on different buses to go home that it occurred to me that the correct answer should have been "Mind if I join you?"

So yes not really a huge regret but I probably really hurt her feelings there and I think the evening might have ended much better had I really paid attention to what she was getting at  :-[

I still can never tell if a girl likes me incidentally.

Ah crap, well my story is more humiliating and therefore probably worth keeping.

What was your best memory?
The First Date Ann and I had walking around MSU's campus.

So if you could have any super power what would it be?

Not realy a story; just the facts:

What college are you/ did you attend? Graduated?
Title: Re: Questions

UMass-Amherst.  Graduated in '99.

Also, if I could have any superpower, I would have the power to create meat out of thin air.  I would then use my powers to go around and give meat to the homeless people out on the street looking for change.  I can imagine the joy on their faces as I approached them and said, "Change?  I can do you one better, my famished friend!  Here's some meat!" and then they would have such gratitude for my giving them food that they'd weep gin-soaked tears. 

I wouldn't cook the meat for them, though.  F that, I'm not Chef Man.

Its actually been awhile... :-\

But when I was in San Francisco a homeless guy asked me and my cousin for some money, and we were in the right mood, so we bought him some pizza. Never seen a guy so happy for a slice of pizza. I felt bad, he was slightly crazy, when we asked him if he wanted a drink, he asked if he could have a root beer. And when they handed him the root beer he asked the lady..."how'd you know I like root beer?" in a really happy/surprised voice.

I've taken up every big-chance that's been presented since turning down film school when I was 19 in an attempt to help my mother get her life together. That decision backfired horribly, and it was my one regret in life.

His name is John, we've been together about five and a half years.  We're taking a couple weeks without seeing each other because I am mentally unstable.  Long story for a different question entirely.  He has been on here before, under the name Rusty Tecumsah (it's not a sex act, it's his porn name (first dog + street you grew up on), but I don't believe he's ever posted.

EDIT: I thought it said "bf" not "bff" but yeah still kinda works, he's my best friend.  My other best friends are Erin, Quita and Kelly, none of whom post here.   But Quita's picture has been seen on the A Face to the Name thread and her bare midriff started quite the uproar.

What did you think of Amelie the very first time you saw it?

Loved it from the first moment I saw it.

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Courtney on July 07, 2008, 02:24:21 PM
One of my best friends and I are drifting apart right now.  Long story short, he's in love with me and making it more and more evident.  I've been really clear that I love him as a friend and have no interest beyond that.  When I'm sober.  When I'm drunk it's kind of another story, not one that's overly salacious, but one that's definitely had its share of flirting heavily.  When I'm drunk, I'm too much with him, and when we're sober he still can't hide his feelings for me.  So it's just a sad shitty situation.

What is the meanest thing another person has done to you?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Fortis on July 07, 2008, 02:35:20 PM
I lost a little weight before high school. And when freshman year started, me and a friend of mine started to be a little more than friends. And I was still really shy with girls having been a fat kid in middle school when I realized girls were hot. So it took a lot longer than it should have for me to tell her I liked her. And when I finally told her, she was really excited, and told me that she liked me too, things seemed great.

That night she went to a party I decided to ditch out on, the next day I got to school and their were stories of her meeting a guy there and hooking up with him. She tried to act like nothing happened. But I was done with her, its probably because of her that, girls that have liked me have moved on since then because I'm too scared to tell them how I feel.

Not remotely secretly, I will always love Oasis.  "D'You Know What I Mean" is one of my favorite songs ever ever of all time ever.

What band do you secretly love?  Not ironically.  Genuine love.

Ask me in December, which is when I will have finished my studying of the spanish language for 3 months in the Missionary Training Center (MTC). I talked to a brazilian guy who only knew how to speak portuguese 3 months before, and after 3 months in the MTC, he was fluent in English. Same with my brother who spent 3 months studying French, and was fluent after that time.

are you afraid to let people see the real you?

All through High school I didn't even know who I was, so nobody really saw me for who I was. But now that I know what kind of person I am, I don't hide it, because I'm proud of it.

This is tough.  I mean it would be so easy to say slavery or the Holocaust, but those things really affected the culture of those who came after.  Not that it's remotely good that they happened, but goodness came from them, identities were formed.

I just buy it.  We have to go to our local Pan-Asian grocery store (by local I mean the closest small city near us, Lancaster) and that's still a gamble if they'll actually have it or not.   The most reliable place we can get it is at the Fil-Am store in Sunnyside, Queens, just off the 69th Street station of the 7 line. 

It comes in two varieties, regular (which is quite sweeter and less tangy than ketchup) and spicy.

What does your state/country flag mean?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: LBeria on July 08, 2008, 05:31:00 PM
US Flag -- 13 stripes for the original 13 colonies; 50 stars -- 1 for each state (by the way, I work with the daughter of the lady who designed the 49-star flag and THOSE are rare since it was only around for 1 year).

Missouri Flag --  Three horizontal red, white and blue stripes representing valor, purity and vigilance and justice. A circle is centered on the flag surrounded by a band of blue enclosing the Missouri Coat of Arms on a white background. The blue band displays 24 white five-pointed stars representing Missouri as the 24th State. The shield of the Missouri Coat of Arms shows on the right side a Bald Eagle grasping the olive branches of peace and the arrows of war in its talons, representing the strength and powers of the Federal Government. On the left side of the shield (the state side) are a grizzly bear and a crescent moon. The grizzly bear symbolizes the strength and bravery of the citizens of the State. The crescent moon symbolizes the State of Missouri at the time of its induction into the union; a State with a small population and wealth and huge potential. The crescent moon also symbolizes the "second son." Missouri was the second State to be carved from the territory acquired with the Louisiana Purchase. The shield is encircled by a belt inscribed "United we stand, divided we fall" indicating the advantage of the union of the United States.  Two more grizzly bears, one on each side of the shield, echo the bravery and strength of the State's citizens. They are standing on a scroll displaying the Missouri State Motto, Salus Populi Suprema Lex Esto (Let the welfare of the people be the supreme law). Below the scroll are the Roman Numerals for 1820, the year that Missouri became a member of the United States. Above the shield a helmet is depicted, representing Missouri as a sovereign State. A large star surrounded by 23 smaller stars signifies Missouri's status as the 24th State. A cloud around the large star represents the difficulties that Missouri endured on its way to Statehood.  (I used to live next door to the daughter of the lady who designed it)

And, no, I didn't type this all from memory (even though they make us memorize it in all 4th grade classes).  Cut-and-paste buds, cut-and-paste....

Was that last respose WAY too long?  ;)

Without a doubt, Star Wars.  Why?  I own every single Star Wars novel that's been written.  I've read them all numerous times.  I even have the supplemental guides (Essential Guide to Vehicles, Weapons, etc).  I'm working on collecting all of the comic book trades too.  I have a handful of Star Wars mini busts.  Hell, I even have some Star Wars LEGO sets.  It's also extremely hard for people to beat me at Star Wars Trivial Pursuit (I have two different editions of that game BTW).  Oh, and did I mention that I have the Star Wars edition of Monopoly?  I also own a lot of Star Wars video games.  I even collect certain Star Wars action figures when the mood strikes me.

So yeah, I'm a bit of a freak about Star Wars.

So yes, a few but mostly the Warwickshire one (incidentally that would be the one that Frodo would speak in as Warwickshire is the basis for The Shire in Lott).

Ear plugs might help...the soft ones that you squeeze to get into your ear.

@ Dim:  George Carlin when he was doing his usual life observations and random thoughts (less so when he got on one of his Rpublican/Conservative rants)

Before I offer up a question of my own I want to address an earlier Q...

What's the best method you can think of for dealing with a person you share a bed or bedroom with that snores?  Feel free to be creative.
 There is sometimes an underlying medical cause.  I speak with authority on this as well as experience.  I was diagnosed with 'Sleep Apnea ' (pronounced 'ep-knee-a').  

Basically part of your throat, (I think it's called the epiglottis)  the part that covers your windpipe when you ear, drink, and so on, covers said windpipe when your sleeping restricting air, and by extension oxygen from getting into the lungs, and the bloodstream.

The body, sensing that it's not getting enough oxygen, sends a message to the mouth to open, as it feels that it's suffocating.  Despite that, the amount of oxygen they receive that way is surprisingly ineffective.  

The sound of the 'snore' is air trying to move past it, causing it to vibrate.  So the subject is frequently gasping for breath, and even when they appear to be asleep,  So as a result of being deprived of spleep, and more importantly, oxygen, the subject feels tired, run-down, listless, etc.  

I suffered this malady unbeknownst to my friends, family, and co-worker/roommates while I was in the army and afterwards as well.  It didn't matter what I did, what position I switched to , side, back, stomach, I always snored.   and those breath-rite strips, while helpful to those with a mild case of Apnea, did nothing for me.

I ended up going to a VA Hospital in Pittsburgh to get tested for Apnea, and to possibly get equipped for a C-PAP or BI-PAP, two similar yet different types of breathing apparatus. ( I don't remember what the abbreviations stand for) 

Basically you get an air pump/combined with a humidifier, which pumps moistened air through a hose and onto a breathing mask that covers just your nose.  It stays in place via an elastic harness, or web that fitted on your head.

 The premise is that the pump is calibrated to compensate you for the precise amount of oxygen that the subject is missing.  Also it provides way more oxygen than could ever possibly be provided by breathing through your mouth.  So your body gets the oxygen it needs, and the involuntary need to keep your mouth open is suppressed. 

On a side note, there are people whose case is so severe, or they feel uncomfortable/claustrophobic towards the breathing mask, that they opt for surgery to fix the problem.  Also, there is a company that advertises fixing Apnea w/o surgery or a C-PAP or BI-PAP & mask. 

I don't know if this applies to the person in question, but I hope it helps...

(dang it! TOO SLOW!!!)

@gammer:   deal with it honestly, & right away...

Probably the Polar Bears, but the animal I really want to see is the Tasmanian Devil, only I think I'd have to go to Australia to do that. I don't know if there are any in zoos outside of Oz.

If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?

I would run for Kitchen Staff Supervisor.  That job's simple.  I'm in charge of the security forces in the country, and my main task is to make sure that the ruler of said country doesn't get assassinated.  If he does, I'm fired.

Favorite comedy group?

Edit: I don't think this one ever got answered, so I'll answer it.

If you were in a horror movie, what would your character be named, what would they be like, and how long would they survive?

Alexandra Cannon-Fodder.  She would be the one who twitches at every single sound imaginable and would only serve to try to outscream infants who were dragged into the theaters by parents who were too cheap to hire a babysitter.  She'd physically last the entire movie, but just before the last half hour, she'd stumble upon scenes of the most utmost horror, involving blood, guts, and gore abound, and would scream herself hoarse, then become introverted for the rest of the movie and spend it curled up in the corner, curled up in a fetal position and chewing on her lower lip until she drew blood on it, thus destroying her mental health completely and rendering her completely useless and (thankfully) silent for the rest of the movie and any subsequent sequels that may spring up.

I either have band practice, or I go to a little thing my friends call T Time, where we go out and get Chinese food and drink beer, and usually throw in some tea at some point.

Or else I like to make love.  You know why?  Because it's Wednesday.  And Wednesdays are usually the night that we make love.  Conditions are perfect...there's nothing good on tv...conditions are perfect.



Ever been in a bar fight?


I haven't personally been in a bar fight.  A bar fight happened amongst my friends and some dongs while I was getting a hot dog from the hot dog kart.  I jumped into that only to save one of my friends from swinging at a cop.  I also left a bar about twenty minutes before the girls I was with got into a brawl with another set of girls.  I probably would have gotten hit by a shoe or two, as that's what happened to my friend Rich who stayed.


Oh for God's sake...


So are you a town mouse or a country mouse?

More a town mouse than a country mouse, though I do like to be able to get away from the hustle and bustle now and again.


Oh and, nice answers to the horror movie question, Dim and Tripe!

It depends.  I mean, I have many favorite bands, many more than ten.  But if it was, say, The Strokes.  They're fine.  But I'm just not a fan.  I'd sooner pay 100 bucks to see Travis than 25 to see The Strokes.

Ben & Jerry's Creme Brulee makes me very happy, as does Dove's carmel pecan stuff.  My favorites ever were Edy's Dreamery Coney Island Waffle Cone and B&J's Concession Obsession, but both have been discontinued.  Coney Island was basically the same as Americone Dream, but the cone bits in that are too hard for my tender teethies.

But that's a horse of another color... :rimshot:

Grilled onions...very nice touch which reminds of the mouth-watering Middle Eastern fries I once had in the South Street district of Philly , but the dressing & cheese...ewwww!  :D

Several. From earliest I can remember to latest.

-A three-foot gingerbread man who lived in a cave.
-A series of tiny creatures who lived in my body, all inspired by the things I saw on TV. I had the angel/devil-on-my-shoulder thing, plus I had a little boxer who punched my double uvula around, plus an Elvis character who played my ear drums. I had no idea who Elvis actually was at the age of four, and for some reason I thought he played drums.
-three wisecracking, floating jack-o-lanterns.

What's your favorite ABBA song?



Hey Courtney, if you had, say, a Zenith portable DVD player, it's quite easy to make it region-free and thus allow you to play DVDs of shows like Life On Mars.  www.videohelp.com has the info up in their "DVD hacks" section.  I think I have the ZPA-314 or something like that, you just punch in a code on the remote and can make it play all regions.  It's pretty sweet. 

Also, according to the amount of times played in my iTunes playlist, my favorite ABBA song is "One Of Us," followed closely by "My Love, My Life," The Winner Takes It All," "The Name Of The Game," and "The Visitors (Cracking Up)."  I'd say of those, "Visitors" is actually my favorite. 

And, to Tripe's question, my own country would be populated by bellhops.  Only there, they would be the ones to order US around.  We'd really be through the looking glass with a reality like that!

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Tripe on July 10, 2008, 09:57:54 AM
I was "caught by an angel" once. what i mean is this. I was climbing about in the house when I was quite little and I'd manage to get quite high up on a cupboard when i lost my footing and fell backwards. I was small enough and up high enough that i should have snapped my spine but instead i felt something liked arms grab me under my arms and my descent seemed to slow till i gently rested on the ground. Now was it all just perception, probably but was it odd and strangely comforting absolutely. :)

I have another story but it's more spooky than ethereal and it involves one of my older sisters (who passed away when I was seven) so I'll not share it in public but if your interested drop me a line.

A few: The presentation of my v-card, which I mentioned in another thread, took place on a mini-trampoline;  in the grass just outside of the large outdoor theater in our home town; and the parking lot of a church was pretty core (in a car, not on the pavement or anything). 

EDIT: oh and this isn't "doing it" necessarily, but I have pulled an Alanis, if ya know what I mean.  (think the lyrics to "You Oughta Know.")

It's a toss-up between inside the revolving door of a photography darkroom, or the front seat of an '89 Firebird.  While driving south on the I-15.

You wanna field this one, Onil?

The woods. Not weird enough? How about being completely naked within ten feet of the restroom/parking lot area? And the woods weren't even all that dense. We got out of the car and went around in a big circle, winding up practically right next to the parking lot. How we didn't notice it until after we were done is beyond me.

It was pretty awesome, though.  :clap:

When I realized how great of a game Zelda: Windwaker was, even though I hated the graphics at first. Now its probably my second favorite zelda game, and I love the graphics.

Also when they revealed the Wii Remote and the kinds of game you will play for it. I knew playing Metroid and Zelda and Medal of Honor would be different from that day forward. I still have trouble playing FPShooters with two joysticks since the wii came out.

I absolutely love Top Gear on BBC America!!  Actrually, I'm having withdrawals because the hotel I'm staying at doesn't carry that channel.  I just hope the new American version they're pitching doesn't suck as much as it looks like it will.  You just can't replace Clarkson/May/Hammond!!  And I want a Bugatti Veyron (http://www.bugatti.com/en/veyron-16.4.html)!!!

Everyone thinks 'cause I'm a girl that I shouldn't like cars and guns -- but I ALWAYS watch the Barrett-Jackson classic car auctions; LOTS of major league baseball and pro football; and collect more guns than most of my male friends.

Title: Re: Questions

I worked as a loader at UPS in college, loading boxes onto a truck at the height of summer.  The inside of the trucks were around 100 degrees, so we were advised to bring cool, cool water.  One day I accidentally built a wall of boxes over my bottle of water early on in the shift and about an hour or so later I just passed out and pitched forward and bounced off one of the big boxes I had just placed on the floor in front of me.  I came too pretty quickly, one of the supervisors jumped in right away to see if I was okay, and then they took me out of the truck and made me sit in the shade and bought me a bottle of Powerade.  Then five minutes later, they suggested I get back in the truck and finish out my shift. 

That job sucked.

Oh you mean like turrets?
Honestly I can't think of any right off the top of my head. But I do have this funny story:
While going to college I worked as a 'stock boy' at a grocery store. One day a Mother and 3 little girls walked by me in the isle while I was stocking shelves. They smiled and said hi to me...except for the last little girl. She was the youngest...probably 3 or 4. This little one looked up at me, stared into my eyes and shouted "FACK!".
The mother wasn't that embarrassed, but she apologized and whispered: "she has turrets".
As soon as the mother and little girls were out of ear distance, I pretty much died from holding in the laughter.

When I was little I went to a school two minutes up the road from my house. So I was able to toddle home for lunch.

One day after lunch I was heading back to school, walking backwards so I could wave good bye to my mum. As i did so i tripped over a ornamental rock that was placed with many others around a little grass verge. Unfortunately on the other side of the rock were the jagged shards of a milk bottle one of which opened my wrist nice and wide (the scar is pretty small now but it actually went almost all the way across).

My mother ran out to see what had happened and had to tell me that no, the wouldn't be able to "just put a plaster on it" at school (actually looking back on it I might well have bled to death had she not been keeping an eye on me).

After dredging that back up, lets be more cheery, what is your happiest childhood memory?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: gammer on July 11, 2008, 06:56:40 AM
My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring, we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum. It's breathtaking. I highly suggest you try it.

Good Crazy, almost everything, I love women.
Bad crazy: The tendency among some women to say "I'm a girl I can't do that" where "that" is some small household maintenance task or traditional "boy" skill (which is why I love that teach girls tech campaign).

A month ago, my sidekick and I was working on a Saturday morning and out-of-the-blue asked me if it would be cool if he could go home for a few minutes. I'm an uber-laid back guy and responded, "Of course." He came back 45 minutes later telling me that I just saved his life. I kind of chuckled and uttered, "Okay". He laughed back and shared with me his diabetes was acting up big-time. He took a shot of insulin before work and went home for another for which I guess was unprecedented for him before noon. Sadly, 2 weeks later he did end up in the hospital for a short stay b/c of his diabetes. He's cool now, and I hope the big guy stays healthy!

I very very very occasionally take a couple of generic Ibuprofen's. My body doesn't react well to medication, and ever since I was a little kid I've hated taking any medicine of any kind. For example, I took one Tylenol PM once to help me sleep when I was sick while camping once. I didn't sleep at all that night, and 6 hours later, I got way loopy for about an hour and then crashed in a way deep sleep for a few hours...Whats bad is I have misaligned knees from genetics so I often have back pain if I stand up too long, so sometimes I wish I could take painkillers.

Oh well...

Ok firstly yes, a sort of a Floridian one. :)

Secondly, oh yes I love the theatre and especially one's where the action uses more of the space. My favorite type of stage is a thrust one, one day I'd like to build a renascence style wooden o theatre that would present plays from and inspired by the Elizabethan, Jacobean, Carolinian and Restoration periods.

However using the space and "coming out and bothering the audience unimaginatively" are two different things. Oh and I have a strong inner groundling so feel free thespians come out and plaaaaayyyy!

Yes I have, that guy was in a cast for a while.  :rimshot:

I have not. The only thing I've broken was my right hand. They called it a hockey fracture, whatever that means. And I was single at the time, which sucked for me! I kinda wish I would break my nose, it's really pointy. I realize that I'm reaching critical arrogant vanity levels but seriously I wish my nose would somehow get broken. I wouldn't want to plan it, because if something went wrong and I damaged something internally that I needed I'd be pissed. So I wish that my nose would break in some kind of door slamming accident. Or me being drunk at the bar and calling the wrong guy an Australopithecus Africanus.

Call me typical, but I love "These Dreams."  If we're talking karaoke, I can always be counted on getting drunk and busting out "What About Love."  For working out, "If Looks Could Kill" is always at the top of my playlist.  So it's a three-way tie.

Giles.  Though he perhaps became less important as the series went on, I felt he actually grew more rounded as a character and his surprise entrance against "Evil Willow" was awesome.  A pity the proposed "Ripper" series never got off the ground.  I also liked Faith, but for completely different reasons.  ;)

Title: Re: Questions

My favorite place in the world is somewhere I've only been once but I really want to get back to visit again....

In 1994 when I was in college, I spent a month in England on a theatre tour and while I was there I visited Warwick Castle.  There's an overlook where you can stand and see the orchards, the River Avon, and all of the countryside below.  That is my favorite place.  I use that memory when I'm overstressed and need to relax.  It was also there that I realized how much I missed my current husband (we were only dating then).  I really, really hope that someday I can afford to return to England and take my husband and my kids to see what a beautiful place it is.

I keep up with LOST, House, The Office, South Park...uh...hang on, that can't be all of them.  Oh yeah, American Idol (though I kind of zoned out during this last season...twas kinda dull), whatever happens to be on HBO at the time (Generation Kill was pretty good last night).  That's about it, I think.  Lately I've also been watching a lot of Ninja Warrior.

I used to keep up the old-fashioned ways:  watching it when it was on or taping it and watching it later.  Now I have the whole DVR thing, so I tend to DVR if I'm out and watch as soon as I get back home. 

What's your favorite Beatles album?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Dim of the Yard on July 14, 2008, 06:43:50 AM
Love, the most recent Beatles album (excluding Across the Universe) with all of the remixes of their songs.  Mostly everything in this album came from the Beatles tracks, save for a few guitar licks written by George Martin for 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps,' and it's an absolutely rockin' album.  I'm not sure if liking a Beatles album in which the only Beatles involvement was OKing the thing, but it's a hell of an album.

The runner-up is the White Album, and in third place is Rubber Soul, if only because of the song Run For Your Life.

Have you ever fallen for a scam?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Fortis on July 14, 2008, 10:19:44 PM
I was in San Fran with my cousin and his friend...who I will call Philip (his real name). And we were walking out of the subway, when this guy walked up to us with a piece of cardboard, some pocket lint, and 3 soda caps.

He told my cousin's friend Philip that if he gives the guy a dollar, then he will give Philip two dollars if he can guess where the pocket lint is after he moves around the bottle caps. Simple enough right? Same old scam.

So this scam guy was smart, he let Philip win every time until Philip had twenty dollars on the table. When Philip realized how much money that was, he got cold feet. But this guy was good, he had a seemingly "random" guy come up and put twenty dollars on the table, and win forty. So Philip felt better about it after that. The guy let Philip win again. Philip now had forty dollars, and the scam guy said, c'mon double or nothing. Philip agreed.

Now I knew what this guy was up to, so I didn't actually put any money on the table, but I was helping Philip out...but when forty dollars was on the line...I lost it. This guy had such good slight of hand, I had no idea where the lint went...even though I'm usually pretty good at noticing slight of hand. Philip looked at me in fright asking for help. He was screwed. And when he lost, the guy walked away with all of Philips money.

Later we saw him scamming somebody else, with that same "random" guy that comes up and bets money and loses when the person he is scamming gets cold feet. Philip was really humbled that day.

Universally, the ballpark. The smell of expectation, beer, consuming ridiculous amounts of Twizzlers, and tens-of-thousands of people smiling. The kid in me turns it to 11 there, and there's no other place I'd rather be.

The runners-up were the floor at a Weezer concert.(the sing-a-longs and dancing are very intoxicating) & Pasqual's in Madison (I don't have any notion on how they compose their veggie-burger, but it's the most delicious thing I've ever had in conjunction with the chips & salsa they provide).

Looking back on it now, it's remarkable to me that any member of the M.A.S.K. team was able to hold down the side-jobs that they had when they weren't performing M.A.S.K. duties.  Take a look at Youtube, at any clip where they show Matt Trakker assembling his team:  Brad's in the middle of a guitar solo at a sold out concert, and just takes off...I would have to think that would put him and his band in violation of whatever contract they had signed with the venue and the show's promoter...Hondo is teaching a class and just runs right out in the middle of the school day...and Dusty's working in a pizza parlor and just runs out right in the middle of spinning some pizza dough.  Why were these people holding down those second jobs, anyway?  They're like, in charge of defending the nation against VENOM, one time a call's gonna come in and Hondo's gonna be like, "It's Parent-Teacher night, Matt, I just can't make it."

I'll answer Steve-O's and re-pose TeamRAD's question.

Do you keep in touch with any of the friends that you made in elementary school (or your national equivalent)?

I run into a few elementary school friends on occasion, and I had one in my Chemistry class in the previous semester, but I don't keep active contact with any of them.  The only one I keep in at least sporadic contact with, she's changed so much since we got out of high school, and we're on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to interests and, regrettably, maturity, that it just feels awkward talking to her now, despite how close we used to be back in the day.

Whoo.  Awkward confession out of the way.  Now back to TeamRAD's question:

Milk.  It used to be beer or tequila, but I can't have those anymore (stupid prescription medications!!!).  Milk helps me deal with the heat when it's really spicy.  Otherwise, sweet tea is my secondary choice because sodas just increase the gas problems....  ;D

Yes....when I was in London there were a bunch of French students on a trip to the Museum of the Modern Image and they were setting off the fire alarms, jumping the turnstiles, and being generally....um....French.... ;D  I saw their advisor/chaperone and told him that I had paid my ticket just like everyone else and had not been allowed yet to enter because of the poor actions of his students and asked him to get his students under control (to the great relief and cheerleading by the Security officer behind me).  When he said, "You're just a stupid American and we don't have to listen to you," the "ugly American" came out and I quite easily reminded him of how quick the French listened to the Americans in WWI and WWII and proceeded to give a detailed history lesson in the lobby of the museum.  The students stopped running and watched the spectacle; the Securtiy guard was laughing; the chaperone was insulted (I didn't care); and the ticket agents refunded my ticket price and gave me a voucher for the museum store.  When I finished my rant, the students left -- along with a nice escort from the Metropolitan Police who also said they enjoyed the show -- and I was allowed to roam through all the exhibits as I pleased.

At work, what's the most outrageous experience that you've ever had with a customer?
Dear Penthouse, I always thought your letters were made up and that sort of thing would never happen to me but the other day at work

OK so I worked in a branch of World Market for a while running their wine department, but I also helped out around the rest of the store. So one day a local Anchor Woman who's probably the most famous in the Detroit Market (not least for asking questions such as "how tragic was it?" to the reporter who had just described a plane crash in which all but an 18 month old child were killed) came into the store.

Now she swanned around the place looking at everything on sale (and world market is not exactly your priciest of retail establishments) before asking to see the clearance section where she proceeded to try and haggle down the price even further. Then at the register she tried to get some sort of quantity discount (not that she had bought a large number of any thing but rather that she was buying a lot of stuff period).

Apparently they don't pay too well at the news.

I'd like to see people be able to translocate like they did on Star Trek. It would be awesome not to have to travel anywhere, just disappear and reappear where you wanted to be.

Realistically? I think it would be neat to see everyone driving a viable alternative to gas-guzzling cars (although I do love muscle cars).

Speaking of muscle cars, what's your favorite car from the 1960's-70's?

My companion would be a loveable 12-year old Cockney chimney sweep, and he'd regale me with soot-covered song and dance.  Oh, what a scamp he'd be!

After his untimely death at the hands of the Cybermen, my next companion would be Ezeza, an Amazonian princess, but not Wonder Woman.  She'd be headstrong at first, rushing into danger without thinking of the consequences, and thus provide lots of headaches for me.  But eventually, she'd mellow a bit, and learn to use her head as much as her heart. 

I'd abandon her on some far off planet, probably called Rylos or something like that, and feel really bad about it, but ah well, what can you do?  My final companion would be Toni, an American girl who talks with a really exaggerated American accent as if to hide the fact that she's actually British or something.

And I'd keep the TARDIS the same as it currently is.  I quite like it.

I used to wear my Star Trek movie-style (II through VI version) in the Homecoming Parade for the local university each year.  Actually, there was a whole "ship" of us in "Starfleet" and we hosted conventions and such.  It was fun getting to know some of the stars who came to the middle of the midwest to see us geeks, but we also raised a lot of money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis.  My current husband has told me that he remembers laughing at everyone walking around in their uniforms at the parade -- but then I had to remind him just how fanboy-ish he'd been in college!!  ;D

I never really participated in Halloween when I was younger and as an adult...it's not for me. costumes that is.  Howbeit, I had an Underoos collection that was unmatched in my childhood, and it more than made up for the lack of Halloween shenanigans back then. Now as an adult, Halloween's all about the movies on AMC during the month of October. I waste SO much time watching them annually. I watched Halloween 6, twice, last year. *shakes head*

Tetris.  My library wasn't all that big, and I wasn't good enough at video games to get into too many of them when I had the NES, but I could play Tetris all day.  I didn't even mind that my cartridge could never save my high scores.  It was just fun.

I would make a sequel to the SNES game "Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars" by Square Enix. I would invariably be the same, but due to technological updates, game play would last somewhere around 7,428 hours.

What do you consider 'crossing the line' of cheating (lunch, after hours work, kiss on the cheak, mouth to mouth, mouth down south.. :speechless: )? :o

When it comes to cheating, my general rule of thumb is "if you have to ask, you already know."  You know when you're crossing the line with someone.  It's a feeling.  If you're asking when you APPEAR to be crossing the line to another person, like if you are going to get caught, then that's another story.  Those last two, obviously.  The kiss on the cheek, hmm, can be.  Some people are very casual with the cheek kisses, some aren't.  After work hours, just together?  Or in a group?  Lunch is pretty innocuous.  But like I said, you know when you're about to cross a line.  So, people, don't do it.  Cheating is NOT cool.

I'm interested in other people's take on this.  Let's keep this going.  Where do you think the line is?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Tripe on July 20, 2008, 10:48:31 AM
Personally I think its when in your head you replace the person to whom you are committed with the one with whom you are having the dalliance with. Therefore it varies between people.

I'll leave the question open to the floor.

I personally have crossed that line more than once: Not once though since getting married, but back in the 90's, I had some drama (including a couple of married women and lived to tell about it  :speechless: )!
..And as my 20 year class reunion is coming up next weekend, I know some ex's will be there and the wife is leaving for Mexico this Tuesday, so there is that nervousness and some thoughts about 'what if'... :scared:

I'll leave the question open to the floor.

I have to agree with Tripe on this one....  When you start replacing the significant other in your mind, that's cheating.  Now, I'm not talking about fantasies -- those little thoughts that occur but you know would/could NEVER EVER happen.  Like when you have that childish crush on your favorite movie star and you know he/she will never know you exist but you think/dream about living the rest of your days in fashionable stardom.  (Quit laughing!!  Y'all know you've had them too!!!)  ;D

However, if you're in a "committed" relationship and you're replacing the person you're supposed to be "committed" with with another person -- then you're really crossing into dangerous territory.

I also like the response that if you have to ask you're already in trouble.

Now, the next part of the answer poses more questions -- what if you and your significant other (husband/wife/partner/whatever) are in agreement of boundaries that to others seem like cheaing-type behavior?  You're not cheating because you've agreed to the terms, but where do you draw the line?  Or, do you even care what others think?

Am clicking the Play Count tab on iTunes.  The top five most played are (and they're not my favorite songs, just the most played):

1. "General Specific" by Band of Horses
2. "Under the Moonlight" by Travis
3. "Good Day to Die" by Travis (although this is actually one of my favorite songs ever)
4. "Minnow and the Trout" by A Fine Frenzy
5. *ahem* "Let Love In" by the Goo Goo Dolls.  It's a good song, dammit!

My greatest fear was the mere thought of never being able to obtain peace-of-mind or worse, become jaded, stemming from everything I've been through in my past. Miraculously, I managed to forge through it, obtain peace-of-mind, and there isn't a hint of cynicism in me. I'm a pretty jovial guy.  That WAS my one literal fear. I'll toss a silly fear out there, I fear that Spiderman 3 has killed its film franchise. The suits will have to contact me in 7 years to help write the reboot. ;)

Looking back at all the movies you've seen in the theater, which one do you look back upon and ask yourself, "Why did I see that?"?

Batman and Robin.  I can never, ever believe that I actually used to enjoy that crap as a kid.

I have to ask: What in the movie made you cry?

Not quite the movie, itself, admittedly.  It's more the realization that I was a phenomenally stupid kid.  This was, sorry to say, one of my favorite films growing up.  When I was much, much younger, my friends (who my mother babysat during the summer), my siblings and I all used to pop this movie in and have a complete ball.  We were exactly the age the movie required us to be--young enough to not care about the science, young enough to think that if they're in a movie, they must be good actors, and young enough to find all of the puns and sight gags funny, yet still innocent enough to completely miss every single instance of Poison Ivy's garden-based innuendo.  My buddies and I would watch this at least every week, and it never got old.

It pains me to watch this movie now.  Not because of how bad it is, but because I know that somehow, in a most bizarre way, I still have relatively warm and fuzzy feelings surrounding this movie, despite how bad it is.  I don't consider myself a film snob by any means, apart from perhaps the fact that Terry Gilliam's my favorite director, but I still find it ridiculously embarrassing to say that I enjoyed Batman and Robin.

And that's why Batman and Robin made me cry.  Back to you, Johnny Unusual.

What's your favourite anthology in any medium?

My favorite is the first Cerberus comic book anthology.  I hunted down this series after I found out that it had a character that was inspired by Groucho Marx, and after tearing through this, I not only fell in love with the short-haired, gray aardvark, but I also fell in love with comics all over again.  Thanks, Dave Sim!

Arg...okay. There is only a few, while I don't really cry during them, I do get a bit misty eyed. The movies that have made me misty from time to time would be Big Fish (love that movie), Return of the King...and, um...dang, there are a couple of mormon movies that make me misty eyed each time I watch them. One of them is about Joseph Smith, the other is a mormon WWII movie.

Depends on my mood and where I'm driving.  On road trips from Chicago to back home, I'm always with my boyfriend so we have to compromise on music (I'm an indie snob, he likes Wu Tang) so it's usually Andrew Bird or Amy Winehouse, the music we agree on.  If I'm by myself, it means I'm back home (I don't have a car in the city) so I like to listen to music that makes me feel like I'm back home (Mazzy Star, Toad the Wet Sprocket, other 90s stuff).

What is something embarassing that makes you cry?  (par examplah, I cry at Hallmark commercials.)

I cried like a baby during the media coverage of Tim Russert's death.  What makes this embarrassing is that I have never seen this man doing what he did best, I had barely known this man from watching MSNBC's coverage of the primaries, and the only real exposure to Tim Russert that I had before the man died, despite the fact that he had been on Meet The Press for about as long as my younger brother has been alive, is flipping through his book Big Russ And Me.

What two things do you commonly associate together that other people probably would not?  (For example, because Tim Russert died during Father's Day weekend, I think of him whenever I think of Groucho Marx and Harry Ruby's song 'Father's Day.')

Wow, the truth sucks.

To be honest, or truthful, I'd say smoking pot. Both my parents, on either side of the North American continent, thought it was just a phase, or fad, I was going through. These days, or more specifically, the last 8 years, I haven't touched the cannabis. But I think about her often. I miss her. And maybe one day when I have a job that doesn't require me to carry guns, or pee in a cup at random, I'll visit her again. I think about her, a lot.

What law in your country do you find outdated and ridiculous?

OK it's still my country even though I don't live there any longer.

The Bleeding TV license fee. Yep you can be jailed or fined if you don't cough up over 100 quid for the pleasure of watching TV, all TV, even the stations that have ads so that the one TV company that didn't used to have a commercial arm can stay in business. And at heart this license exists in order to prevent the Nazis from winning the Second World War.

Mind you it took about 90 years for the opening hours to be changed from what they had been set at to keep the munitions workers from not  turning up to the factories soused and thus endanger the effort in the Great War, so the license fee may still be with us for a while.

What law in your country do you find outdated and ridiculous?

If I can change the word "country" to "state," I would think that the most ridiculous and outdated law  in my state would be the law that states that it's illegal to play blackface onstage.  Just be warned, I may have only formed this opinion after I watched Epic Movie out of morbid curiosity, which parodied The Da Vinci Code's albino monk character by having a black man play whiteface.  This was an absolute affront to comedy itself, as the fact he was playing whiteface was the ENTIRE JOKE and nothing else was ever made of the fact that he wasn't a real white man, and was therefore my entire basis for my opinion.

As you can obviously tell, I'm ignoring the whole "blackface is offensive" aspect of the law simply to complain about Friedberg and Seltzer.  But I'm not entirely sure if whiteface was banned in New York theater.  I should look into that.

OK what is your ideal girl/boy like?

The one I've got right now; Kind of dorky and rather laid back, yet assertive when he needs to be.  Just enough interests in common that we have something we can talk about, but enough different that we can take each other outside of our comfort zones without it getting too uncomfortable.  Being able to tolerate an extended amount of time with my sister certainly doesn't hurt.

I would drive what I used to drive in the Army. The Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck, or HEMTT. The bobtail version of this truck would carry the PAC 2 or 3 Launching station. That's PATRIOT Advanced Capabilities 2 or 3 Launching station. And of course. PATRIOT itself is an acronym. It stands for Phased Array Tactical Radar Intercept On Target missile. Kind of a loose acronym, but I think it exists in spirit. The last year I was in the Army, I helped the Norwegian Royal Air Force put their NASAMS missile system into practice in the national capitol region. NASAMS used to stand for Norwegian Advanced Surface to Air Missile System, but when we (the Americans) bought it, it became the National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System. Ha ha.

Did you watch the show Chuck? you excited for season 2?

I am!  It started out a bit slow, I didn't really care for it, but it got better and better.  I'm pretty stoked.  And I have a crush on Chuck.  Tell no one.  Sarah Lancaster will also always be the chick from Saved by the Bell: The New Class to me.  Tell no one that either.

FTFY.  It stands for "Fixed This For You," and I can never remember this, which is always fun when I see it used in forums and spend a couple minutes trying to figure out what it means.  For some reason, I'm prone to thinking it means "For the fucking YES!" until I realize that they changed the quote.  THEN I remember what it means.

Yes, that's always fun.  And no, I'm not being sarcastic.

I went to Camp Widgewagan Girl Scout Camp when I was 9 (I quit Girl Scouts literally the moment I got home, I was only still in it so I could go to camp.)  I remember it being moist and musty.  Camp-smell is a real thing, like wet wood, grass and humidity.  Everytime you'd pull your clothes out of your bag, they'd be wet.  I remember being very disappointed that Bug Juice was just Kool-Aid (not that I wanted it to be the blood of insects by any means, I just thought it would be more interesting) and it was the first place I ever heard the real Brothers Grimm fairy tales (sisters getting mutiliated, murder, all that fun stuff).  All the counselors and CIT's had monikers like Fozzie and Tink.  I was insanely homesick.  I think I was only there a week or two.

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Plastic Self-Cleaning Duck on July 23, 2008, 11:46:22 AM
High school. Good times or bad memories?

Very bad memories.

My grandfather was dying of cancer, in the middle of that my grandmother had a stroke (mentally effected her instead of physically so she had to be watched all the time).  When they were occasionally in the hospital it was wolf down dinner and then I had to spend my evenings doing my homework in the waiting room while the adults visited them then home and straight to bed.  When they were home the whole house was a sick room (and smelled like it) so I didn't dare ask anyone over and had to worry at school all the time that my clothes smelled of it.  My Mom had to quit work so she was a full-time caregiver...meaning no money coming in from there.  Just from the grandparents' savings and Social Security.  So, we never had any money.  I got about $50 worth of new clothes at the beginning of the school year (late 70's) and that was it and only had spending money was if I didn't buy lunch at school (I couldn't get a job - Mom needed me at home).

And the people at school never let me forget it for a minute ("Don't you have any other gym shoes? Why not?").

The first two years were bad times, because I was the smart, geeky, quiet kid that everybody liked to pick on.  The last two picked up steam because I learned how to become a smartass and benefitted wonderfully because of it.  I got good grades all throughout, I ran Crosscountry and Track through most of high school, and the first two years of drama club were amazing and funfunfun, and the last two sucked donkey balls.

Final verdict?  Ehhhhh.

I'd love to build a Elizabethan wooden O theatre, much like the Globe in London and put on performances of Elizabethan and Jacobean playwrights plays. There are tons of plays that are great but rarely performed and it'd be nice to give them some time on the stage again.

I might even expand it for a brief season each year to plays in the spirit of the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods much like the RSC does at The Swan each year.

I'd do a spin-off of The Simpsons focusing mainly on Bart and Lisa.  I'd age them up considerably, old enough to send them away to a cheap, affordable college just in the area, with just low enough standards that Bart will be able to stick around, but with a few really neat professors (whether cute or skilled, it doesn't matter to me) to keep Lisa from getting too bored with the easy coursework.  It'll also be close enough to home that if the writers run out of ideas for Bart and Lisa, they can focus on the parents, or maybe Maggie, for a few episodes.  Because those kids need to just grow up.

Title: Re: Questions

I'll say Schipperke, but with reservations. They're great little dogs but you have to get one from a reputable breeder, one that really works to breed the nasty out of them. Because they have a tendency towards nastiness. Otherwise, they're a lot of fun -- a big dog attitude in a little dog's body. I love things that are bigger on the inside than on the outside, things that don't look like anything special but have a lot going for them inside.

Anyway....

About 3 or 4, I didn't know chocolate liqueurs actually had real alcohol in them, and oh were they horrible (oddly now I love the things)

First real taste of alcohol was probably 9 or 10 with some wine at dinner.

What's you favorite type of chocolate?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: LBeria on July 24, 2008, 12:17:39 PM
Anything chocolate is my favorite!!!  Are you kidding???  Do you have to be specific in that kind of answer???  ;D ;D ;D

I prefer milk chocolate to dark chocolate but I know the dark is better for me.  And, yes, I did think that baking chocolate was edible by itself once when I was a kid -- I'll NEVER do THAT again!!!

If you could have anything you wanted dipped in either gold or chocolate, what would it be and which covering would you prefer??

P.S.  To Johnny Unusual -- I did the "comic book/gaming/nerd-ish" store thing back in the 1990s....  It was fun but you had to deal with a LOT of crap from people who wanted to just wander around and touch everything and buy nothing....  That's why now I have the other half of the store I had online -- people who want to touch it have to pay for it first!!  And, if they ask too many stupid questions ("Are you open?" when I'm sitting in the store; "Is this stuff all for sale?"; and "Why won't you give me the price I want for my stuff?" were some of my favorites), I can just DELETE them!!! *evil laugh*

Wonder Woman....before the late '60's "Diana Prince" thing.

EC Comics (Tales from the Crypt, etc.) or Warren Publications (Creepy, Eerie & Vampirella)?

On a more somber note, where were you when you first heard about a plane flying into the World Trade Center?

At work - a place that verified information for mortgage lenders and banks.  We weren't allowed radios so a client told someone during a phone call.  Then we started hearing from other clients that the Pentagon was attacked and then that someone had heard that an attempt had been made on the Turkey Point Nuclear Plant (here in Miami).....

We asked the manager if we could bring a radio so we could hear what was happening.  She said, "It will still be on the news when you get home tonight."   ::)

I was sitting at home, watching TV before my afternoon classes.  Both Mom and Dad where both home.  I actually didn't get the impact of what I was seeing right away, but I did call my parents into the room figuring it must be important.  In all honesty I knew little about the center before that happened.

While I was road-tripping to Louisville for Krazyfest 5, I stopped at a Subway somewhere off I-65 in Indiana. I'm still under the assumption that I was the very first person who ever asked for a Veggie Delite sub at this particular Subway. It was so bizarre being asked repeatedly if I was sure I didn't want any meat on my salad within bread.  I had to have been asked 5 times and pointed at the menu that yes, it's real, I'm not making this up! It provided some much need levity while trekking 260+ miles across Indiana. Louisville... *thumbs way up*

What a ______!! (fill in your own blank)

I was at home watching a live broadcast from New York when they switched the camera view to show the first impact.  I saw the other one coming and hit the second tower while I was on the phone with my husband trying to convince him I wasn't crazy and making it up.  Just as the second one hit, we both went silent and then the email alerts on his computer started going off telling him to lock-down the armory he was working in.  We're in the Bootheel of Missouri -- if the terrorsists were going to attack us, they'd either be totally lost or the rest of the world would be gone.  However, I didn't sleep for over 48 hours because I was monitoring the news constantly.

And some say that's why I'm as crazy as I am now... :P

Quote from: TeamRAD

Yes I do and I'm not ashamed to admit it!!  I even have a new blanket and pillow that I'll be taking to the hospital with me.  It's a pillow of Cheese's head (you have to be a fan of "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" to understand) and a blanket with him on it.  I really like the character and I figure if I'm gonna have to be somewhere dreary, I can still be a kid about it!

No, but during student orientation at my first college, myself and many of the other students of the floor that I was sleeping on were up, trying to work on our schedules for the Fall, and a whole mess of people from the floor below marched through wearing togas and chanting, as can be expected, "Toga!  Toga!  Toga!  Toga!"  They seemed surprised when none of us joined in.  They didn't seem to realize that we wanted to get our classes squared away.  They also got in trouble with the people who organized the orientation the next day.  They apparently pissed off a lot of people with that little toga parade.

I have both a brother and a sister, but I have never come to blows with either.  They've come to blows with each other, however.  They can't stand each other.  My nickname (one of many) in the family is "Switzerland," because I act like a buffer between and two and end up trying to break up their fights.  If we ever go on long car trips in the same car together as a family, I'm usually the one in the middle, keeping those two the hell apart.  Somehow, they still manage some very violent thumb wars.

What historical place, not a tourist attraction or monument, would you like to visit?  I mean a place where something important happened.  I'll give my answer as an example.  I've always wanted to visit the remnants of Bletchley Park where Alan Turing and friends gave those dirty huns a cryptological beat down.

What's your favorite part of the Whedonverse?  Buffy?  Firefly?  Angel?  Dr. Horrible?  Already stoked on Dollhouse without even seeing it?  The show that could have been/could be Ripper?  Anything!

Buffy, and by a fairly wide margin at that, even though I could easily lose seasons 5 and 6, and most of 7, and be perfectly content to have constructed a show where those seasons didn't exist, it's still easily my favorite.


What planet would you most like to steal?

Jupiter.  Obelisks, be damned!

Who is your very favorite character in literature?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Fortis on July 28, 2008, 11:56:26 AM
Probably Eowyn from Lord of the Rings. She has the most interesting story in there, and her characterization is so deep and tragic. They got it right for the most part with the movies, but the way Tolkien uses his words really makes her story the most beautiful one I've ever read.

I'd have to go with Bigwig in Watership Down.  He's a great officer and incredibly loyal, and is hotheaded enough to completely relate to, even though he's a rabbit.


What's your favorite catchphrase or running joke from Rifftrax?



Well, I find that my friends and I tend to say "Magneto? Cerebro."  a lot.  So I guess that.

What's your average distance and time it takes traveling to a destination by road?

Depends where I'm going.  Work?  About 15 minutes/15 miles.  Band practice?  About 40 minutes...no clue on the mileage there, I'll just say 45. 

What's your favorite level from a videogame?  Mine would have to be in Goldeneye 64, the one where you start out in jail, and have to break out and take out all the video cameras without being spotted by them, gather up a bunch of evidence, and then escort Natalya out of the base.  And if you just try to plow through it, a whole flood of guards will show up and kill you.  It took me forever to figure it out, until the day I realized I had to hang out back at the jail cell and lure guards in to their deaths, and take them out with short, controlled bursts from my machine gun, and then methodically and stealthily make my way down the halls and take out the cameras one at a time.  Some games, such as Time Splitters or Perfect Dark, have done similar levels, and done them as well if not better, but Goldeneye was the first time I can remember using a sort of "be patient" strategy like that.  Awesome.

So again, What's your favorite level from a videogame?

For that I would say, yes. But to be completely honest I will throw in that the thought does cross my mind sometimes.

Nope. It's not like I had bad times in high school, but I was in a rather precarious situation outside of it concerning my foster home. You want to talk about stressful, holy cow...I had to be out of it within a week of graduating. So after I graduated, I immediately bolted and moved onto the next stage of my life. I went back to my 5 year reunion for some closure, brighten many faces, but it isn't anything but history to draw upon for anything I create in the future. I'm comfortable with that.

There are many favourite moments, such as Daisy suddenly getting much hotter in series two, but the scene that I remember the most is the slow-motion face-off between Tim, Daisy, and a bunch of horrible youths.  It's foreshadowed earlier in the episode, and the pay off is hilarious.

I grew up in The Shire (really I did, Tolkien based his hobbit homeland on South Warwickshire and North Oxfordshire) and like JRR I too prefer the countryside (Mordor is based in no small part on Birmigham, go take a visit sometime and you'll see why most likely). My mothers house backs out almost immediately onto the Welcombe Hills, this is what they look like:

What's the Greatest bridge you've ever been across? (me: New River gorge in WV, and the the new Cooper river bridge in Charleston, SC :o )
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Dim of the Yard on July 30, 2008, 06:32:28 AM
It's not a famous or even an infamous bridge by any stretch of the imagination, but I'll have to say the bridge over Lake Sacandaga in New York State.  The bridge is prominent in my childhood, and is a thin and narrow little thing, without all those huge guardrails, those sidewalks around the edge of the bridge, or even massive framework holding it up.  It's all well and good when you go over it, but when you go under it on a boat (or on dry land, if the lake dries up enough, like my family did once when I was really really little), you can see how little support the bridge actually has, and it's either a miracle of modern bridge-building or a death trap.

My fondest memory about that bridge is my sister telling me that if you make a wish and hold your breath as you cross a bridge, it will come true.  So we made a wish and held our breaths.  I was the only one that held my breath on the entire span of the bridge, but the bridge also spanned more than a mile long.  My brother and sister swore I was a little blue after that little trip.  And my wish didn't even come true!

So many memories...I would say watching it for the first time with someone I love, which made it all the better.  But for individual moments, lessee...

First off, Brian to the rescue!:  "I'll put it in Tim and Daisy's room." *cue Magnificent Seven music*

Daisy being allowed a box instead of a dog as a child.

Jaffa cakes!  Yaaay!

Tyres.

"No, it made me want to DROWN things!"

The most memorable moment, for me, however, would have to be the entire sequence where Tim and Daisy are deciding what to do on their night out, culminating, eventually, in Daisy's Elvis impression.  

And now, back to our game.

Lake Huron, it's the Great Lake I'm most familiar with. I taught a couple of campers to swim (or started them on their way) in the Lake and I used to do the polar bear swims in it.

Which event has had the most profound effect on your life ?

One night in Iraq I was sitting in the tent when we got contact. I threw on all my gear, grabbed my rifle and headed out. I was in Launcher platoon, in an Air Defense Artillery PATRIOT Missile battery. So our job was to go "down range" and protect the launching stations. Well, the Army Corps of Engineers had built up these "berms" around all of the launchers. So what we did was used the recesses of the berms as a makeshift fighting position. So, in front of me was an attack of an unknown magnitude, and behind me was a PATRIOT launcher, that if activated would shoot off a missile and would most likely incinerate me. It was right then, that I realized that I was there by no other means but my own. Nobody else was responsible for putting me there in that terrible situation but me. And it was very liberating to finally accept, not think, or know, but accept: 1. the enevitablity of death, and 2. I was solely responsible for my actions and decisions.

I browse 4Chan every once in a while, but I'm not really a member of any other forums, no.  I left them all after I started to really dig it here.  I kind of didn't like the MST3k Discussion Board too much because I always felt so self-conscious posting there, and the other board I was really big on was a board for a popular Anime show at the time, and I left to try and prove a point.  A few people decided to leave the board for whatever reason, and everybody replied with, "Pssh.  You'll be back in two weeks, tops.  Everybody who says goodbye always comes back."  This made me irrationally mad, so I made a topic saying I was leaving and I never went back.

Do you know of something that can make you irrationally mad, yet is so ridiculously minor, you don't really even understand why you're getting that worked up in the first place?

"I'll make brain stew for dinner when I'm the cook, Jack!"

Hm...  There's a city farm just down the road from me that I went to as a kid, so I probably saw Cows there.  My first real memory of cows though was when I was 7 and we were driving through France.  My mother pointed to a field and said, "Look! There's some sheep!" when in fact she was pointing out some very obvious cows.  It's running joke in our family to this day, if we're in the same car and see some cows, someone will pipe up "Hey! Look! Sheep!" :)

From the RAD soundtrack, Break the Ice by John Farnham. You can't imagine how badly I wanted to take on Helltrack after hearing that song for the first time. That song has been on an endless loop in my head for over 20 years. It pretty much represents everything I love about the wonder that's RAD. Well that, BMX, and Lori Loughlin.

Sign me up for the General Manager position of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Brewers are on solid ground, and Pittsburgh needs all the help they can get. They have a beautiful ballpark, the great city of Pittsburgh, and history...but lacks a winning season since the early 90's. I'd hire Keith Law to be my main man. We'd bring Moneyball to the Pirate's organization and become relevant in four years. It would rule!

What's your favourite episode of Batman: the Animated Series?

I'm not really much of a Batman fan outside of the 60's series (and the little figures which were in Cinnamon Toast Crunch & other GM cereals from this spring/summer, they were cute), but I have caught a few episodes of TAS in the past. It served as my introduction to the Scarecrow, and I really dig him. Fun little tangent...from UGO...

Strangely, the Scarecrow was passed over as a potential villain for the '60s Batman TV show - perhaps he was thought to be too much for young audiences, or perhaps his scare tactics might not fit within the humorous framework of the show.

Actually, I don't consider playing RPGs (role-playing games for the uninitiated) a sport, regardless of those who consider themselves "pros" and get paid by companies to go on ESPN and play Magic: The Gathering or some stuipd game like that.  But, I did nearly end up with a concussion once when some of us were playing and I had ducked under the table to pass a secret message to another player (who is now my husband) and started to stand up before I was completely out from underneath.  That hurt like Hell!!  :-[  Not only did I hit my head on the table, but I also whacked it on the metal braces underneath that hold the slides so you can extend the table and put extra leaves in to make it longer.  THAT hurt!!

If you'll count tears of laughter as a valid answer, then yes -- Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and Top Gear (both on BBC America) get me watery-eyed with laughter.  The guys on Top Gear are hillarious and I wish the shows weren't delayed by 3 years.  I like Ramsay's shows on BBC more than the ones he's done for American television because the British ones are more real -- actual shock-and-awe over how awful they are instead of people trying to mug for the camera and become famous like they do here in America.

I like this question so I'll post it again...

What movie did you cry during that you would be completely embarrassed about other people knowing?

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Keroppi20 on August 06, 2008, 02:58:00 PM
And since I'm strong enough to admit this earlier I might as well make it into a question: Does any tv show regularly make you cry? Cold Case totally makes me cry every time.
If you'll count tears of laughter as a valid answer, then yes -- Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and Top Gear (both on BBC America) get me watery-eyed with laughter.  The guys on Top Gear are hillarious and I wish the shows weren't delayed by 3 years.  I like Ramsay's shows on BBC more than the ones he's done for American television because the British ones are more real -- actual shock-and-awe over how awful they are instead of people trying to mug for the camera and become famous like they do here in America.

What movie did you cry during that you would be completely embarrassed about other people knowing?

I LOVE Top Gear, I hated the delay and having half of the program cut out so I have downloaded all of the full episodes  on my computer and I am now all caught up with the true seasons  :D  I can tell you where to get them from if you want  :)

Okay back to the question:

To say that I cried like an infant at The Notebook would be offensive to infants.  That movie literally destroyed me.  But that's pretty common amongst the ladypeople of the world.  I also bawl every time I watch The Many Adventures of Winne the Pooh.  And while not a movie, I cry buckets at most Hallmark commercials.  The one in particular that almost drove me into traction was the one where a woman buys a card because her brother just got his first place living on his own, and she goes over there and you find out he has Down's and he makes her dinner.  I sobbed for like two hours.

So I want to know what love is.  I want you to show me.  How do you personally know it's love?

I'm not, but my husband is licensed for all types of military vehicles including the M113A1 Armored Personnel Carrier.  I have, however, driven WWII Jeeps (used to own one) and a White Scout Car (like a half-track but with wheels in the back instead of tracks).  You don't need special licenses for those -- so when the guys at reenactments trust me, they let me take them for a spin!  ;D

Aaahhh...poopie....

What MST3K or RiffTrax'd movie would you actually LIKE to see re-made into a good or even great movie?
That's a tough one!  I'd say maybe either the RiffTrax Star Wars Prequels (they couldn't be any worse!) or maybe a remake of Red Zone Cuba (one of my all-time favorite MST3K episodes).

Dag guys!!!  Can't a gal get an answer in???

Many many times.  And as ragey as it makes me, mostly I just get happy I made a popular thread.   :P  But I think my record is six before I said screw it and closed the window ragily.

What the hell went wrong with Family Guy?

Shitty lazy writing.  But that didn't so much go wrong since that was there all along.  I know people like it, but it is the most lazily written show on the planet.  It has its moments, but it bothers me from a writing standpoint.

Probably Requiem.  But LOTR had a gorgeous score.

Don't worry, Onil, I won't let the other boys ignore you.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?

Far more than necessary, but probably fewer than most of my female friends.  I'm not even going to bother counting.  We'll go with 50.  Only three pairs of which are heels.  Most are flats, five or six are flip flops, and another five or six are Chucks. 

Do you currently own any stuffed animals?

Yes.  I still have my teddy bears, Amanda and Mr. Bear, as well as my giant Pooh Bear and my Stitch (and yes, by the time that movie came out I was far too old for stuffed animals.  But I LOVE that movie and had to buy one.)  But they're all at my parents' house.  I still assign emotions to them and I didn't want to move them from their home.

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Dim of the Yard on August 06, 2008, 08:57:44 PM
Which album has been the most influential on your life?

Ima Robot's Disconnect.  I fell in love with one of their singles from the album, Creeps Me Out, because the chorus more or less illustrated what I felt about my boyfriend at the time, and I think it either pushed me to break up with him or helped me laugh off the relationship and help get over him faster.  In the meantime, this album was just so rocking that it got me out of my "Classic rock is the only music I will listen to!" phase and helped me come to terms with the idea that, yes, modern music DOESN'T suck hardcore.  Ima Robot is still one of my favorite bands of all time.

What brand of deodorant do you use?

Ban.  Just because I think the name is funny.

(keeping with music) What was your favorite concert that you attended?

Rolling Stones.  They came to a local arena in 2005.  It was a ridiculously small venue, I got tickets for my birthday, and they were absolutely rockin'.  I loved the show to pieces.  They played all of my favorite songs, including a few songs off of their new album, and their keyboardist was at the perfect volume: loud enough to complement the instruments without taking over the rest of the band like he has in a few other tours, as my best friend's father pointed out a couple of times when he popped said tours into the DVD player.

What band is so unappealing to you that, if they were touring with your favorite band, would cause you to think twice before going to one of their concerts?

Most bands that play country and western.  Garth Brooks stands out, if only because that's one of the only names I can think of off of the top of my head.

Who is your current favorite artist (music wise)? (Apocalyptica is mine)

Ima Robot.  It was the band that restored my faith in modern music.  A close runner-up is Paul McCartney, who only loses out because 'Ebony And Ivory' drives me up the wall.

Whoa, that's a tough one...seeing Weezer at the Inland Invasion in San Bernardino, CA a few months after the release of the GREEN album. I flew out to be a part of it, and it didn't let me down whatsoever. Singing & dancing with what seemed to be an infinite amount of Weezer fans to Surf Wax America on the hill, will forever be one of the best moments of my life. It was a super feeling that they were fully back even if it was sans Matt Sharp.

What band is so unappealing to you that, if they were touring with your favorite band, would cause you to think twice before going to one of their concerts?

It's a tie between Bright Eyes & Death Cab for Cutie (Oh.My.God, please take my ears, now)

Who is your current favorite artist (music wise)? (Apocalyptica is mine)

Anything Ben Weasel related.

Do you still have something of yours that you had when you were a kid, such as a baby blanket or a stuffed animal?

I wish. When I was placed in a foster home, I basically had most of my things lost in the transition. I'm thankful for the few photos I received from my grandparents as a reminder that yes, I do have living proof, outside of my word, that I did possess a childhood at some time.  :)

But I made up for the above quite a bit in my adult life...I own every toy I've ever wanted.

Is there a band all of your friends like but that you dislike, or vice versa?

Yep, everything that's on modern rock radio sans Weezer, The Hives, The Pixies, and a few select others. Anything but talk-radio drives me bat-shit crazy for the most part.  :)

The same as my dream car -- the Bugatti Veyron....  It's got 987 bhp (brake horsepower)!!  You gotta love it!!

Oooh!!  And they're coming out with a convertable version -- which seems really stuipd if you're going to be traveling at 253 mph (it's top recorded speed).  ;D

Do you have a favorite beer?
I used to, but since I take meds that won't allow me to have alcohol, I can't drink them anymore and I don't know which would be my favorite.  I used to drink Budweiser (I live south of St. Louis so that was great when A-B still owned their own company), Michelob Dry (they don't make that anymore), Killian's Red, Fosters, learned to drink Busch from my grandmother who also taught me to keep score while watching STL Cardinals games every summer as a kid, lots of others I can't remember anymore, and had a blast trying lots of new types of beer in London.  I liked Zima (yes, I'm that goofy), but it's a "malt beverage" and not a lager or an ale -- so it's not actually beer.  But, it's great with lime in it and looks really cool with green (or any) food coloring in it for holiday celebrations!  ;D

That's an amazing beer. Whenever I hit up the Flat Top Grill, I always have a bottle of Tiger or Phuket...and sometimes, both. They are both so tasty and complement a meal wonderfully. Sadly, I've never seen the Tiger in the Woodman's cooler (microbrew heaven)...which is kinda odd.

My favorite...will forever be...

Obama or McCain? 
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Dim of the Yard on August 07, 2008, 10:18:59 AM
Obama, and I'm especially hoping that he elects McCain the Secretary of Adorable Robot Bedtime Stories.  I'm a little bit too fond of my quick and shoddy Photoshop job to want it any other way.

Same question, hopefully with a more coherant answer: Obama or McCain?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Tripe on August 07, 2008, 10:31:23 AM
Do I need to answer this one, I think I'm one of the more vocal Obama supporters on this forum :)

Do I think he's perfect, nah far from it, but he's far and away a better choice than more of the same from McCain (amusingly while a Conservative will disagree with me on the why, most of them don't like McCain either).

Plus Cthulhu isn't running officially.

Shall we keep this going a bit longer?:

Obama or McCain? 
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Johnny Unusual on August 07, 2008, 10:43:44 AM
Well I can't vote on this election (but there are certainly many Canadians who wish they could) I would definitely vote Obama.  Not just because I'm a liberal guy, but also because McCain was once an interesting well-spoken and likable conservative who sort of became a sad sell-out of a man.  I agree Obama isn't perfect, but at least he seems confident, well-spoken and not completely ruined by the system... yet.

Yep, multiple versions and in the original languages. It's not bad. As for English translations I rather like the Moffatt and either King James or Douay-Rheims translations.

Nobody would ever guess I'm the son of deacon  ;D

That didn't sit well with me, and my diplomacy skills came in handy as I just muttered, "Alright tough guy...." and for some reason he let me go but not before he expressed to me, "Your lucky I'm not going to kick your ass."

Oh my god, the poo I've been through at Wrigley.

This is a sign that I listen to my iPod much more than my iTunes

5. Lilum (the opening theme to Elfen Lied)
4. Love Without Anger - Devo
3. America, F*** Yeah (from Team America: World Police)
2. Holiday Song - The Pixies
and inexplicably
1. Stand back, for your own safety - The Aquabats

The number one is a 6 second intro clip to the rest of the Album.

AHAHAHAHAHA, I'M SO LAME!  They're mostly episodes of the Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel radio series.  Here's the list, in order:

1. The Who: Quadrophenia- The Punk And The Godfather
2. Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel: Original 1932 Radio Series- 5 minute excerpt (Fly By Wheel Tours)
3. Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel: BBC 1990's Remake- Finding Foo Foo
4. Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel: BBC 1990's Remake- The Stolen Rembrandt
5. Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel: Original 1932 Radio Series- The False Roderick

These aren't even my favorite episodes!  I adore the original series stuff, especially the five minute excerpt, but Finding Foo Foo is a weaker episode, and The Stolen Rembrandt is just a rehash of stuff found in Animal Crackers.  Laaaaaaame!

Gym class, watching everybody terrorize the gym teacher.  The room kind of sobered up after a bit when she said that her father might have been in a plane crash, but we didn't hear exactly what that plane crash was until next period, when the teachers (PS - Yes, teachers.  Not professors.  I was in middle school when this happened) sat us all down in one of the classrooms and explained to us what happened.  I got to see it for myself at lunchtime, when the principal put the news on in the back of the room.

My parents also picked me up from school that day, a rarity.  They both worked 9-5 jobs, and my siblings and I usually walked home, but as a precaution, everybody who worked at the state was told to go home early.  As a side note, my parents worked, and still work, at the assembly building in the state capital of New York.

I've never taken it before until now, and the results...

I'm an INFJ: Introverted/Intuitive/Feeling/Judgment (44/50/12/33).

I possess the Idealist Portrait of the Counselor...

Counselors have an exceptionally strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others, and find great personal fulfillment interacting with people, nurturing their personal development, guiding them to realize their human potential. Although they are happy working at jobs (such as writing) that require solitude and close attention, Counselors do quite well with individuals or groups of people, provided that the personal interactions are not superficial, and that they find some quiet, private time every now and then to recharge their batteries.

Wait, there's even more...

They are highly private people, with an unusually rich, complicated inner life. Friends or colleagues who have known them for years may find sides emerging which come as a surprise.

Spot on! *thumbs-up, Tripe*

I'm an ESFJ: Extroverted/Sensing/Feeling/Judging (33/1/62/1)

Guardian™ Portrait of the Provider (ESFJ)
Providers take it upon themselves to insure the health and welfare of those in their care, but they are also the most sociable of all the Guardians, and thus are the great nurturers of social institutions such as schools, churches, social clubs, and civic groups. Providers are very likely more than ten percent of the population, and this is fortunate for the rest of us, because friendly social service is a key to their nature. Wherever they go, Providers happily give their time and energy to make sure that the needs of others are met, and that social functions are a success.

Highly cooperative themselves, Providers are skilled in maintaining teamwork among their helpers, and are also tireless in their attention to the details of furnishing goods and services. They make excellent chairpersons in charge of dances, banquets, class reunions, charity fund-raisers, and the like. They are without peer as masters of ceremonies, able to speak publicly with ease and confidence. And they are outstanding hosts or hostesses, knowing everyone by name, and seemingly aware of what everyone's been doing. Providers love to entertain, and are always concerned about the needs of their guests, wanting to make sure that all are involved and provided for.

Friendly, outgoing, neighborly - in a word, Providers are gregarious, so much so that they can become restless when isolated from people. They love to talk with others, and will often strike up a conversation with strangers and chat pleasantly about any topic that comes to mind. Friendships matter a great deal to Providers, and their conversations with friends often touch on good times from years past. Family traditions are also sacred to them, and they carefully observe birthdays and anniversaries. In addition, Providers show a delightful fascination with news of their friends and neighbors. If we wish to know what's been going on in the local community, school, or church, they're happy to fill us in on all the details.

Providers are extremely sensitive to the feelings of others, which makes them perhaps the most sympathetic of all the types, but which also leaves them somewhat self-conscious, that is, highly sensitive to what others think of them. Loving and affectionate themselves, they need to be loved in return. In fact, Providers can be crushed by personal criticism, and are happiest when given ample appreciation both for themselves personally and for the tireless service they give to others.

William Howard Taft, Barbara Walters, J C Penney, Ray Kroc, Louis B. Mayer, Sam Walton, Dolley Madison, and Dave Thomas are examples of Provider Guardians.

Ok I'll answer for my missus here because the 40s are really her thing, and the one actor she likes most of all is Claude Rains, but really he's very good in pretty much everything he's in. Not sure if he counts as a movie star though. He was very prolific but I'm not sure if he ever really attained Star status.


Ok I'm ENTP

Quote
Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving

"Clever" is the word that perhaps describes ENTPs best. The professor who juggles half a dozen ideas for research papers and grant proposals in his mind while giving a highly entertaining lecture on an abstruse subject is a classic example of the type. So is the stand-up comedian whose lampoons are not only funny, but incisively accurate.

ENTPs are usually verbally as well as cerebrally quick, and generally love to argue--both for its own sake, and to show off their often-impressive skills. They tend to have a perverse sense of humor as well, and enjoy playing devil's advocate. They sometimes confuse, even inadvertently hurt, those who don't understand or accept the concept of argument as a sport.

ENTPs are as innovative and ingenious at problem-solving as they are at verbal gymnastics; on occasion, however, they manage to outsmart themselves. This can take the form of getting found out at "sharp practice"--ENTPs have been known to cut corners without regard to the rules if it's expedient -- or simply in the collapse of an over-ambitious juggling act. Both at work and at home, ENTPs are very fond of "toys"--physical or intellectual, the more sophisticated the better. They tend to tire of these quickly, however, and move on to new ones.

ENTPs are basically optimists, but in spite of this (perhaps because of it?), they tend to become extremely petulant about small setbacks and inconveniences. (Major setbacks they tend to regard as challenges, and tackle with determination.) ENTPs have little patience with those they consider wrongheaded or unintelligent, and show little restraint in demonstrating this. However, they do tend to be extremely genial, if not charming, when not being harassed by life in general.

In terms of their relationships with others, ENTPs are capable of bonding very closely and, initially, suddenly, with their loved ones. Some appear to be deceptively offhand with their nearest and dearest; others are so demonstrative that they succeed in shocking co-workers who've only seen their professional side. ENTPs are also good at acquiring friends who are as clever and entertaining as they are. Aside from those two areas, ENTPs tend to be oblivious of the rest of humanity, except as an audience -- good, bad, or potential.

Some Famous ENTPs:
Alexander the Great
Confederate General J. E. B. Stuart
Sir Walter Raleigh
Fictional:
Mercutio, from Romeo and Juliet
Horace Rumpole, from John Mortimer's Rumpole of the Bailey series
Dorothy L. Sayers's detective Lord Peter Wimsey


Does that sound right?

Post by: a pretty girl is like on August 15, 2008, 07:02:58 AM
Apparently I'm this: INTJ

All Rationals are good at planning operations, but Masterminds are head and shoulders above all the rest in contingency planning. Complex operations involve many steps or stages, one following another in a necessary progression, and Masterminds are naturally able to grasp how each one leads to the next, and to prepare alternatives for difficulties that are likely to arise any step of the way. Trying to anticipate every contingency, Masterminds never set off on their current project without a Plan A firmly in mind, but they are always prepared to switch to Plan B or C or D if need be.

Masterminds are rare, comprising no more than, say, one percent of the population, and they are rarely encountered outside their office, factory, school, or laboratory. Although they are highly capable leaders, Masterminds are not at all eager to take command, preferring to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead. Once they take charge, however, they are thoroughgoing pragmatists. Masterminds are certain that efficiency is indispensable in a well-run organization, and if they encounter inefficiency-any waste of human and material resources-they are quick to realign operations and reassign personnel. Masterminds do not feel bound by established rules and procedures, and traditional authority does not impress them, nor do slogans or catchwords. Only ideas that make sense to them are adopted; those that don't, aren't, no matter who thought of them. Remember, their aim is always maximum efficiency.
In their careers, Masterminds usually rise to positions of responsibility, for they work long and hard and are dedicated in their pursuit of goals, sparing neither their own time and effort nor that of their colleagues and employees. Problem-solving is highly stimulating to Masterminds, who love responding to tangled systems that require careful sorting out. Ordinarily, they verbalize the positive and avoid comments of a negative nature; they are more interested in moving an organization forward than dwelling on mistakes of the past.

Masterminds tend to be much more definite and self-confident than other Rationals, having usually developed a very strong will. Decisions come easily to them; in fact, they can hardly rest until they have things settled and decided. But before they decide anything, they must do the research. Masterminds are highly theoretical, but they insist on looking at all available data before they embrace an idea, and they are suspicious of any statement that is based on shoddy research, or that is not checked against reality.

Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Dwight D. Eisenhower, General Ulysses S. Grant, Frideriche Nietsche, Niels Bohr, Peter the Great, Stephen Hawking, John Maynard Keynes, Lise Meitner", Ayn Rand and Sir Isaac Newton are examples of Rational Masterminds.

Strange that.

I'm an ENFP (Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving).  Here's the description from Wiki:

Quote
ENFPs are initiators of change, keenly perceptive of possibilities. They energize and stimulate others through their contagious enthusiasm. They prefer the start-up phase of a project or relationship, and are tireless in the pursuit of new-found interests. ENFPs are able to anticipate the needs of others and to offer them needed help and appreciation. They bring zest, joy, liveliness, and fun to all aspects of their lives. They are at their best in situations that are fluid and changing, and that allow them to express their creativity and use their charisma. They tend to idealize people, and can be disappointed when reality fails to fulfill their expectations. They are easily frustrated if a project requires a great deal of follow-up or attention to detail.

Champions delight in novelty. They are optimistic, enthusiastic, and vivacious, craving expressions of strong emotion. With a dramatic flair, they share their experiences with others, hoping to reveal some universal truth or win others over in support of a cause. Attuned to possiblities, Champions scan their environment, probing the emotions, needs, and motivations of others. This sensitivity sometimes conflicts with their intense drive for personal authenticity. Spontaneous and personable, they attract others to their company.

But I kind of hate these things.  Yeah, mine was pretty accurate, as are most people's, but there's A LOT of repeat questions and like anais said, they're worded to fuck with you.  Plus I've encountered enough people who really stake their entire beings in this test, like they present "well I'm an INFP" or whatever when you first meet them, and all of these people are lame.  (those who were in the chat when I told the story of my stalker, he was one of those.  So word to the wise - if someone presents themselves as their Myers Brigg score like it matters in anyway, they will probably stalk you.)

Continuing on a theme here... Who's your favourite film star from the 80s?

John Cusack.  Shocking I know!

What's your favorite 80s movie?  And when I say 80s movie I mean a movie that is just that: 80s.  Not like Ordinary People, which happens to have been made in the 80s.  A movie that embodies the decade.

I got my horsemanship merit badge in boy scouts twice...which is weird since me and horses have never gotten along. Don't get me wrong, I like riding them, and they are beautiful animals, if a little smelly.

But I've always had bad experiences while riding them, they always get really restless and nervous when I ride them for some reason. And I've had a few close calls falling off of them and such. So I usually just avoid situations where I have to ride them (living in an area in vegas where lots of cowboys live lends more opportunities to ride horses than one would think).

But yeah, got the merit badge. Plus riding Epona in Ocarina of Time, Majora's mask, and Twilight Princess is a lot of fun...

I guess that counts as the last question posted, so....

The question of your sexuality has never crossed my mind, Isaac, but if I was pressed and forced to give an answer about your sexuality, and without taking your answer to Mr. Basehart's question into consideration, I probably would have guessed that you were straight.  So, not only do I now know that you are not into dudes, but I had a suspicion that you weren't, before your grand announcement.

If you could erase one person from existence (besides Hitler), who would it be?

I don't really think I would erase a person from history.  Whether what a person does is for the better or for the worse, people have either learned from the experience and improved the world in some way based on said experience, or in some way gained at least a little bit of entertainment from it.  Everything goes in to the worldview that we have today, and without a certain person, we would be missing a building block of what makes that up, whether it is a minor or major piece of what makes up that world.

I guess I'll pass the decision on to BTA.

If you could punch one celebrity in the face, who would it be?

Tom Cruise.  It may seem like a stock answer, but I can't watch an interview about him without wanting to punch him in the face, especially if he's advocating Scientology in some way, whether saying it's the best thing ever or using it to describe why he things Psychiatry is the worst thing ever.  He just seems prone to punching in these interviews.

I also went to hollywood for the first time...which sucked, it looks so glamorous on TV, but you go and its in a really crappy part of town, and its really dirty. And the only memorable thing about it was a guy walking up to me convinced I was a celebrity and begging for my autograph even though he wouldn't answer me as to what movie he has seen me in.

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Fortis on August 20, 2008, 01:45:03 PM
Spooky...I was just talking in the chat room about my scary arby's experience. There is an arby's across the street of my work...and I really like bacon cheddar melts (I'm not ashamed), and I also like them because they are one of the few fast food chains that doesn't give me the runs, and they serve pepsi products, so I can get a mountain dew.

Thing is...there is this road in Vegas called Rancho. Its infamous for people running red lights, speeding, and overall having a scary driving experience on it.

Well...across the street from my work, is the arby's. The street I have to drive across in my car...is Rancho. Now keep in mind, this is the only intersection on Rancho, that doesn't have a light...people who are speeding from the North to South and vice versa...don't have to stop. But those going east to west and vice versa...don't have a light to make it easier turning...or going straight. I needed to go straight...yeah, lets just say, and old lady didn't turn fast enough on her right of way...and it made me have to wait a few extra minutes to cross the street.

When you have an opening...no matter how small, you pop the clutch or put the pedal to the metal, because you don't get another opening like that for several minutes at a time on Rancho. And in 110 degree weather with no AC and the sun has made your truck go into an upwards of 130 degree heat, and your steering wheel may just give you third degree burns...Three minutes...is an eternity.

The one and only time we had Arbys, we went through the drive up window and there was someone in front of us fighting with the person at the window.  I mean full on yelling the manager's got her finger on the button to call the cops type fighting.  We opened our window to try to hear what they were yelling and this is what we heard in the redneckiest southern accent imaginable which I've always found strange because we're in PA:  Gimme my money back you dumb fucking whore!  Then they drove off.  Now we yell that at each other and the kids every now and then.  I don't remember what Arby's food tastes like.

I was in the 1989 San Francisco Earthquake.  Luckily the only ones lost in that earthquake that I knew was our fish. However, since I walked into the large broken fish tank with all the dead fish on the carpet I have been afraid of fish.  During the earthquake I was outside pretending to surf on the shaking ground.

When I was in High School I stole a car. It was my friends car. The police had stopped him, and confiscated the car because his license had been suspended. They parked it at a gas station, he gave me the spare set of keys, and I stole the car. I felt like my doppelganger, Ronny Howard.

Recently I rewatched Assassins, with Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas.  It's a decent action flick, but contains an a situation so contrived as to only happen in movies.  Basically, upon their first encounter the two assassins both escape each other, with Stallone trying to track Banderas down.  Reasoning that Banderas might try to leave the country, Stallone steals a taxi and manages to pick up Banderas who flags him down to get to the airport.  It's completely ridiculous.  Then I found out it was written by the Wachowskis, and I shrugged my shoulders.  :)

I've performed in a lot of plays.  I've mostly been extras, such as a Messenger in Macbeth and a random Russian who gets to dance with Tevye in Fiddler On The Roof, but I've also taken a few leading roles, such as Frenchie in an abysmal production of Grease.  Oh, that play was awful.  The casting was terrible, the director had no idea what she was doing, we didn't get the official music for the play until one week before the play opened (!), and I didn't get a role that I wanted (a role that actually had a few singing lines to myself, since Frenchie does not have any single lines to herself and I consider myself a stronger singer than an actor) because I apparently TOOK THE AUDITIONS TOO SERIOUSLY.  What the hell?!

My favorite role was the Pope in Nature And Purpose Of The Universe.  It seems that whenever I get a role as an extra, I get cast as a male.

If you could be in any play that you wanted, and be cast as any character that you wanted, what play and character would that be?  (The role doesn't have to be gender specific, either.  I'd totally play Chico in Animal Crackers, for example.)

Perhaps Biff Loman in Death of a Salesman.  Realistically, I wouldn't be a great choice for the bombastic, crazy father, but it's such a brilliant play that I would've loved to have been in it.

Let's count all the nerd things.  It's at The Franklin Institute, a science museum geared towards kids.  It's an exhibit on Star Wars and its real world science counterparts.  There's a home made Rifftrax shirt.  There's two nerds wearing plastic Star Wars watches from Burger King.  And there's cosplayers pointing props at us.

I've only ever read a couple of autobiographies, as I prefer biographies, as they seem to give a much rounder view of someone's life (thoug less intimate).  I really loved Michael Powell's autobiography, but I'm going to say it's the worst, because half-way through, after 1500 pages, the bastard gives up! Right in the middle of his career, before the controversy over Peeping Tom (which he refers to in the book, and promises to get to, but never does) - he just wraps it all up in a paragraph, saying that he's decided to stop, and enjoy the sunset or whatever... Dagnammit!

Also, slow drivers are the ones who cause more problems than speeders even if they stay in the right lane because everyone has to try to get around them.

Short hair. It would be soooooooo much easier to take care of. And, like Abby from Riding with Death, I don't look good bald (although I have shaved my head before)

The proletariat do.  Workers of the world, do not be lulled into complacency.  You shoulder the burdens of the world yet reap few, or none, of the rewards.  There will be a time when equality isn't a dream.

No, I shan't because I am not a citizen.  I am a man without a country at the moment.

What television programs (new or returning) are you most looking forward to this fall season?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Courtney on September 11, 2008, 04:42:28 PM
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.  I'm not above the life of a shipper and I want Barney and Robin to get together NOW.

I'm also looking forward to the return of 30 Rock, The Office, and in newness news, I'm not ashamed to admit I'm loving new-90210.  It's filling the teen soap void left by The OC and giving me some lovely 90s nostalgia in the form of Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor.

What new TV show (this season or in recent memory) were you most disappointed by?
Title: Re: Questions

The Nine.  It had a terrific, tense and stylish pilot that left the show nowhere to go but down.  And down it went, like Kirstie Alley on a crafts service table.

Did you ever watch every episode of a TV series in the days before DVD and TiVo made it easy to do so, and if so, what series?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: mrbasehart on September 11, 2008, 07:56:41 PM
The one I avidly watched was Star Trek: The Next Generation.  It came around tea-time in England and was played on a channel with no ad breaks.  I pretty much watched the entire thing on TV before I bought them on DVD years later.

I watched every episode of Ally McBeal and it's not in DVD in America (note to self: get a flipping multi-region player already, gah), and I have seen absolutely every episode of *hushes so not everyone hears and makes fun of her* every incarnation of Saved By The Bell (regular, College Years, New Class, AND the made-for-TV movies).  I too probably watched all of TNG, but I'm sure there's a few I've never seen.

OK not due to general out look (or narrowness of a certain part of my anatomy) but more due to the fact that I often have to sort things out for people who shouldn't need said thing sorting out (my siblings mostly).

Hank Hill, While sometimes he's in the wrong on King of the Hill, there are many episodes where I watch it and can feel at least a little fellow feeling with him.

Good question, lets do it again

The entire cast of Lost. Except, since my life isn't actually in danger, I am learning to embrace the Chaos.


Also: I have seen every episode of Quantum Leap. All in the days before DVD!

I would love to think I'm like Charlie of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He's completely wacked out and always does the things he shouldn't. He's got no sense of responsibility or purpose but he's funny as hell, man.

Rant in E Minor is really, really, really good.

The original Batman series from the 60's. Will it ever happen?

I have seen absolutely every episode of *hushes so not everyone hears and makes fun of her* every incarnation of Saved By The Bell (regular, College Years, New Class, AND the made-for-TV movies).  I too probably watched all of TNG, but I'm sure there's a few I've never seen. 

I believe I've seen all of the TNC but don't remember anything from it other than Lindsey. Hang Time was better than TNC!

Yep, Autumn is the season when the Celtic New Year falls. I love Autumn, the beginning more than the end but in general it's my favorite season.

It even gave us one of my favorite Justin Hayward songs even if the message of that is rather less positive on Autumn:

TNG = Star Trek: The Next Generation, I've watched most but probably missed a couple.  TNC = The New Class, and yeah I saw it all.  I figured I'd quit while I was ahead, but hell I also saw all of Hang Time and California Dreams too.  DEAL WITH IT!   :P

What's your favorite apple related dessert/treat?

I am a simple girl with simple needs and I love just apples and peanut butter or almond butter.  

EDIT: SNAP.

What's your favorite unconventional or exotic fruit?

Kiwi, if that can be considered unconventional.  For actual exotic fruit, black persimmon.  SO GOOD.
