People often focus on the things they'd love to change about their lives. What parts of your life would you choose to keep exactly the same? My sense of humor.
Have you ever said something to an online friend that you would never say in person? Do you think it's easier to discount real feelings when a relationship takes place largely online? Can the emotional disconnect become habit-forming? I have given several online friends my bank account information so that I can be given part of my rightful inheritance from relatives I didn't know existed.
If humanity were to become extinct, do you think another animal species would evolve to take our place? What lessons do you think they'd learn from our successes and failures? Monkeys will take over and will fight the penguins....so...no.
How do you think online dating has changed the way people meet and form relationships? Do you think it's increased or diminished the superficial emphasis placed on looks and financial status? I think online relationships have taught us that most women online are either prostitutes or peverted men.
What is the worst movie you've ever seen? Did you sit through it or walk out? What made it so dreadful? Any Hallmark Hall of Fame feature. I walk out on them.
What's the most unusual food you have ever eaten? Have you ever consumed anything without knowing precisely what it was and gotten sick when you found out? Hot dogs. Well, one time in history class our teacher fed us hot dogs while reading Upton Sinclairs "The Jungle" about the meat processing. Most people ran out and threw up. It was awesome.
If you were forced to live forever at any age, what age would you choose, and why? What if your memories stopped at your chosen age? How would that impact your decision? These questions are a paradox within themselves.
If you could experience being dead for one day to learn what happens in the afterlife, and were guaranteed to return to life the following day, would you do it? Why or why not? I wouldn't do it because I would be a raving lunatic afterwards. Moreso than I am now.
What is the absolute worst song ever written? For what amount of money would you consider listening to it over and over again for 24 hours? Any song by James Taylor. 97 Gazillion dollars.
Do you get offended if someone repeatedly checks their mobile phone when you're out for lunch or dinner? If so, do you usually say something? No, because no one eats meals with me. *Sad panda*
Has anyone ever unfriended you without explanation? Did you ask why? Have you ever deleted someone from your friend list without saying why? Yes, on Facebook. I didn't ask why because she's my ex.
How do you feel about human cloning? Do you think the long-term societal impact will be positive or negative? Why? My answer would depend on how much maintenance a clone would need. If not much at all, then heck yes, so it can do my job while I stay at home and make love to my hot wife who hopefully isn't a clone.
What's your favorite cult film of all time, and why? What are the essential ingredients for a cult classic? Monty Python and the Holy Grail because of the absurdity of the comedy. An essential ingredient would include not being popular at first.
What was your last random act of kindness? Do you believe in karma? It was back in 1993, when I gave a monkey some banana bread from my lunch at a zoo. Since then all monkeys have loved me.
If you could wake up and spend 24 hours in an online game with any weapons/powers, would you do it? If so, what type of game would you choose, and why? I would be the guy who gets nothing but "draw four wild cards" on online Uno. I would be champ in no time!
Do you believe the groundhog can accurately sense the approach of spring? Even if you don't buy it, are you happy when the little guy doesn't see his shadow? I believe the groundhogs are more accurate than a meteorologist is. Either way, weather is weather.
What animal best represents your inner spirit? If you had to wake up as an animal, which one would you choose, and why? Are your two answers the same? Why or why not? I think my favorite animal has been well documented on here, so figure out the answer yourself.
Given the choice, would you rather sleep in or eat a delicious breakfast? Is there any food you love so much that you'd wake up at dawn or travel a great distance just to eat it? I would rather sleep in and go somewhere that advertises "Breakfast 24 hours". Seriously, you can have bacon and eggs at 3 in the afternoon if you wanted to.
What is the one simple indulgence you could never live without? Would you consider giving it up permanently for any amount of money? The Internet. No amount of money would be enough.
Have you ever made up an excuse to avoid a social obligation so you could spend the evening by yourself? Do your friends and/or family understand when you need some quality time alone? Yes, I have avoided people and event before. Usually no one understands that I need some "me" time every once in a while.
Have you ever had a crush on another LiveJournal user? If so, did you confess your feelings? What happened? Yes, I do. I don't think I've ever expressed my feelings due to my own incompetence. Nothing happened except for that unsightly singleness part of my life.
Thank you, LiveJournal. Now I have no writer's block.
