Nope, never enough money and I work on weekends. All cons are at weekends.
Ever shot a gun before?
Yep. My father taught my brother and I how to take care of and fire pistols, shotguns, and a variety of rifles back when we were kids. I remember when I was about 6 or so firing the 10 gauge shotgun but not holding the stock firmly against my shoulder. OW!!!
When you were a kid did you ever fall out of a tree?
No, I didn't climb trees. I wasn't an adventurous kid.
Owns an Animal Crossing game.
No. The only contact I've ever had was reading The Terrible Secret of Animal Crossing. That was enough for one lifetime. I'm too old to find it anything but creepy any more, even if I hadn't read that.
Why do people like Asuka Soryu?
I can only assume they're masochists. That or they find her sexy enough to excuse the crazy.
Have you sent anyone a PM before?
More than enough times.
What are you procrastinating?
Finishing the very necessary research on a novel I want to write.
Do you have any major personal projects you're working on?
Only working very slowly on my gaming backlog. Or does trying to buy a house count as a project?
Have you ever seen a UFO?
Not really but I have seen fighter jets and helicopters.
Why are you acting so suspicious?
No reason. *puts finger on ear and talks into shirt sleeve*
Ever been naked in public?
I've been to a nudist beach, yes.
What do you dislike about the Escapist?
I feel stupid here, sometimes. I suppose it's because I don't really live in "the big bad world" yet.
Are you a member of any other forums outside of the Escapist?
Yes, HvK Gaming.
What is the last number of pi?
It's like the Tao--those who know don't tell and those who tell don't know.
Would you prefer to live in a world ruled over by Lovecraft's Mythos of entities or the Norse pantheon?
Compared to Chthulhau, the Norse gods are harmless.
Do you believe in aliens?
I believe there is life on other planets, but not the type that has any sort of interest in us.
Want to go to space?
Absolutely, but I'd prefer to do it in the Enterprise rather than the Millenium Falcon. More cozy and food replicators that would create any feast I want. :D
If you were given a spot in a One-Way-Trip to create a habitation on Mars would you take it?
It would depend on the who was going with me. I'd probably prefer to stay on Earth with all the shiny things and no portals to hell.
If you've done neither, would you rather sky dive or scuba dive?
Of the two, Sky dive.
Embarassed for having any phobias?
Not so much embarrassed, but we do enjoy a good laugh about me being afraid of woodlice. I know they're only little, but they creep me right out and I worry that if I can see one there's thousands more in the wall or ceiling. Luckily people know not to act on it by throwing them at me or stuff, because they know I know their fears and the retaliation will be much worse.
If someone wants to talk about something you aren't familiar with, do you try to stop them, take it as a chance to learn, or go along with it with a sense of indifference?
Well, there was this one guy I knew that would do it so relentlessly and constantly that I had to try and stop him sometimes, but otherwise I'll remain indifferent to it, possibly coming less indifferent as I learn more and it catches my interest.
What wakes you up in the morning?
My alarm clock--at 5:15 AM!!! I hate working early in the morning, sometimes, but it's nice to get off early in the day.
Why did Santa Claus permit the other reindeer to terrorize Rudolph for years until Rudolph proved useful?
Because the only way Santa punishes bad behaviour is by gifting lumps of coal, which isn't really a good way to punish bad behaviour.
What did the robot say to the centipede?
Beep-boop, son. Beep-boop.
What was the centipede's reply?
"Don't call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease!"
Have you ever gotten sunburned?
As a pasty-ass whitey, of course I have.
Have you ever gotten a warning on this site? If so, what for?
2 warnings--both for Low Content. The second one I got when I was a MOD!!! D:
If you could be a Mod for a day and your actions wouldn't be held against you what would you do?
BAN ALL THE PEOPLE then have a party with myself.
Nah, there is a few people that clearly need a good banning though.
What was your favourite subject at school?
Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, you know the only ones that had some level of difficult therefore the most interesting, though I liked most of the other ones too, I always thought learning was fun.
What is your favourite sport to play?
My favorite sport to play was baseball. Sadly, I haven't played it since I was 9 years old. D:
Do you sleep in as long as you can get away with?
I'd rather get up early every morning. Lately the trend has been around 12:30. :/
If you made a horrible mistake of some sort, would you rather be (and have every one else be) unaware you were the culprit, or would you rather be aware and able to make amends?
Frankly? I'm the type of guy who admits to mistakes most folks (including past Bosses) would have preferred I not admitted to. As such I must say that it's entirely dependent upon the situation. :/
Is Cotton Candy the creation of PURE EVIL?!?!?!? :D
Anything that looks that big but is that light must surely be witchcraft.
A rocking guitar solo or epic drum solo?
Dang. Probably the guitar solo, but now I feel like apologising to the world's great drummers.
Do you still fear Copper Zen flaunting his ban hammer, or do you laugh in his face and give him a wedgie?
I laugh in his face and dance on his grave! ^_^
...they stole it from us...my precious...
When was the last time you had a hangover?
