Well the Trojans were all jerks, and I've never heard of the City of Durex... Personally, I prefer Thebes.

I have an epic 4 inch plastic figurine of a Minotaur swinging a huge battle ax that came with my Collector's Edition Age of Empires II. It's been sitting there for close to 5 years now.

Spirituality in a science-driven world. How does one reconcile a need for wholeness with the knowledge that we can probably never know everything? (There you go.)

Find an object near you that you like and tell us a bit about it.

Shown holding a plastic fork for scale.
I do a lot of woodworking, and I made this guy back in high school or junior high. His head, arms, and legs all turn, and I came up with the design myself with a regular legoman and a ruler (and a lot of squinting). People can't usually figure out how his legs both work with no visible joinery, but the hardest part was probably making the head without a lathe, and painting the face.

The writing table/desk behind me. Built by myself as a 4-H project two years ago, it's not very deep and excessively tall and wide; it looks pinched and needs a few inches cut off of the bottom of the legs to actually serve as a comfortable writing table. The square legs are made of a golden stained ash with a single stripe of dark walnut down the centers of the sides. The theme continues on the top, with a pair of stripes of walnut running horizontally. I would hate it if it were not for the two exposed faces of curled white ash on the top and front edge, which would totally kick the ass off of any bit of maple.
Obviously, I like my wood. :)

Edit: Ninja'd. I'm not going to delete that response, though.

Cook from scratch? Hah. I can barely do better than fried egg sandwiches. :lol:

Gas or diesel?

At 23 minutes, that's one slow ninja... kinda funny that we both happened to pick things we had made.

I do like kiwifruit. I wish I liked to eat the whole thing like a peach, as I'm told many people do, but the skin is just a little too tough/fuzzy for me to handle. I would never buy them for this reason - too much work to peel/scoop out. Perhaps it's partly to do with the fact that they need to be picked unripe that makes them tougher when they get to these northern parts - fresh fruit is always better ripe-picked.

The time I turned left in front of someone out of inattention (20-ish years ago). It pretty much finished the car (frame bent, not worth fixing), and it started a chain of damage to a couple of disks in my neck that now really causes me problems. I might need surgery within a decade to stop the damage to the nerves going down my arm, unless I can really really stick with my physio exercises. >.< (No severed or unusable limbs though, so it's all good.)

Whatever the typical cruise speed of a 737-400 is - about 780km/h, apparently. On land, I don't think I've exceeded 170km/h.

How many books do you own (approximately)?
Bonus question: How many of them are unread?

I'm going to guess, but I'd say something like 250... the bulk are split between novels and various non-fiction interests, and then a lot of handbooks/textbooks I use for work/used for school. I realized earlier today, actually, that I have five books on concrete.

I would say I've read the majority of 80% of them - most books I acquire with a specific intent to read them, so it's rare that I would have it if it were just going to sit on a shelf. That said, I asked for the Silmarillion for Christmas one year and I have no intention of ever reading it.

Balance a chair on my forehead. A useful skill to have, and I recently perfected it at my friend's wedding. (I knew how to do it before, I only perfected it recently, so I suppose that doesn't count)
If you mean actually taught myself, and include tutorials, then I recently taught myself how to write Android apps.
