Right, been double-tagged. Now, I realize it's a bit hypocritical of me to deny outright an irritating tag thing when I would absolutely answer the questions from it.
tagged me and... I'll just answer the questions. I won't accept the rules. It's not like I signed a contract or anything.
So... from 1: How awesome are you?
Between 7/8ths and 5/3rds, depending on the day and current opportunities.
2: What fascinates you?
Quite a lot; Mostly learning things that open up new possibilities. And when I get someone else to have an "ah-hah" moment.
Also, when couples do a "couple thing". Like picking up an argument from last week, or finish one another's sentences, or share a glance and smile as they remember a good time. It gives me the same feeling as holding a kitten.
3: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
They weigh 8.6 lbs as an adult. So I'm going to guess their caber toss limit is under 10 lbs. 2 lbs might be pushing it, if they don't have a good strategy.4: Where will you be in 5 billion years?
Almost certainly dead. Unless I'm quite fortunate to survive, in which case I'd have to be on another planet (this one would be et by the sun by then) and I'd be trying to figure out how to fit my new bank card into the new reader because technology always finds a way to progressively grow more annoying.
5: How was your day today?
Tolerable. I slept a lot, chatted with friends who are vacationing out of state, and played a chunk of Far Cry Primal. It crashed on me in a recent mission, so I'm doing this now.
6: What is the answer to everything, the Universe, and life? Not the other way around.
7: What is your favourite type of landscape?
Anything I'm flying over in a video game. (Because the real thing makes me a bit nauseated, claustrophobic, and I crash a lot in games where it's less of a problem)
8: If you had a tame dragon for a pet, what would you do?
How big, and how smart? Because if he's smarter than me, I'm probably the pet. Otherwise... I dunno... arrange a comfortable, non-flammable nest? Take him/her on walks in the park, to freak out other pet owners? If it's big and flies, probably find out how to travel to visit friends... and worry constantly about feed costs for what amounts to a fighter jet.
9: Is this the real life?
I'm pretty sure it's a real life. It's a bad risk to treat it as anything else.
10: Is this just fantasy?
Check your genre. There's no magic, no faeries... we're clearly modern and nonfiction.
11: Is there anything that you are working on?
Outside of videogames? Applying for disability... and I have a couple groups helping me figure out WTF I can do and should work towards.
12: What is your favourite meal?
It varies. The important thing is quality. I mean, "pizza" technically includes the barely edible crap from totinos. I guess the perfect meal would involve a little shrimp tempura, a steak sandwich on really good wheat... and some buttered corn.
13: In a small town, every man must be shaven, and the barber will shave all those who cannot shave themselves. Who shaves the barber?
I know this is a set theory thing, but if he shaves himself, that's in addition to the folks who can't shave themselves. And it's not like humans can only fit in one category.
asks:1. What is... your name?
2. What is... your quest?
My current main quest is figuring out what the hell I'm doing in life. Which isn't working. I'm just grinding side quests until I stumble across whatever hint I missed.
3. What is... the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Google pegs this at 24 mph.
4. Would you rather fight 1 kangaroo sized duck, or 100 duck sized kangaroos?
Who is the bastard with these bizarre attack animals? A duck the size of a kangaroo would be kinda like an emu. Far Cry has taught me that they'd kill me. A hundred tiny kangaroos is a bit like being mobbed by squirrels who can't climb, but have frightfully powerful rear legs. I guess the latter, because I could probably crush them by rolling over them, but... ugh. I'm worried it'd be like losing to Squirrel Girl.
5. Have you ever invented something that actually worked?
Not lately. I've totally had some stopgap solutions in college that didn't totally suck. Like getting everybody on my floor to deal with a one-inch gap between the screen and the window... with duct tape. >_<
6. What song is currently stuck in your head?
7. Watch this. Now what song is stuck in your head?
8. Now that's over with, do you have any exciting plans for your watchers this year that you can reveal any details about?
Nah. Wish I did.
9. Light side or Dark side?
I hate binary "morality" systems like the Jedi. Both are pretty damn big on evil. I mean, if it had ever occurred to Obi-Wan to maybe not let his mum die in slavery... hey! Maybe he wouldn't have fallen? Honestly, the light side has been really consistently useless. I can't see myself following either one because I possess an iota of common sense.
10. Pick up the first book you see, open to page 13 and read the 13th sentence on the page. What was it?
Nah, that came up with a boring sentence not worth typing.
11. Do you think we are alone in the universe?
Unless we figure out a good way to deal with how mind-blowingly HUGE space really is, I think every species in the cosmos is pretty fucking alone.
12. Is magic real?
No. But... we're getting kinda close to having holodecks!
13. If you had a time machine, when and where would you go?
I'd jump ahead a fair distance, bring back a ton of science, and one lottery #. The medical knowledge I'd bring back would save a ton of suffering, and I'd have patents for a lot of very profitable toys. I'd also be able to make enough "campaign contributions" to make the country stop sucking... until I got assassinated. Guess I should leave my past self a note to pick up in the future about what attempts are made on my life... >
Other than saving the present, I guess I'd do fun things in the future. I mean, that's where the cool technology is going to live. Functional holodeck, direct neural interface... I could spend quite a lot of time living in a fantasy world where life is good, a loved one with traits conforming to my fetishes exists... and... I don't know what else. I'd be weeping tears of joy with just that much.
No, I'm not tagging anyone. That's fine.
