In theory it's only of instrumental value, but you never know what knowledge you may want later, so in practice I consider it to have intrinsic value, and I seek to remember any knowledge I think I can remember, and I desire more knowledge.

Hmm... this is difficult. I like many different shows for many different reasons. Currently, I'm really into RWBY.





Do you think that your current you would approve of the you that you will be in 20 years?

If you include rock concerts in your definition of "performance art" then Pearl Jam performing an acoustic version of Black was breathtaking. If you don't include rock concerts, but you do include theater, I would have to say Shakespeare's Two Gentleman of Verona was a wonderful play. If you don't include theater then, ummm ... anything else that doesn't include a mime works for me.

Do you prefer the Beatles or the Rolling Stones?

The Beatles. IIRC, the Rolling Stones have like, 5 songs I really like. The Beatles have entire albums.

And I'm not talking about mainstream songs, I'm talking about Blackbird or Real Love.

1, Spanish.

Yeah, I can't speak English, being my second language, I have never cared about pronunciation and all my communication on English is text based. This means, effectively, that if you phoned me you'd probably have to speak very slowly so I could gather what you're saying, but that it'd be hard for me to say something back (or it'd come up as gibberish because I'd not know how to pronounce it right.)

No. That's not to say I won't sit down and watch one, but thinking to myself that sitting for two hours to focus on one story is not something I go out of my way to do. That said, I ended up sitting down and watching many throughout my college career.

Does the term "fhqwhgads" carry any emotional resonance with you?

Last (and only) new car I purchased was a 2003 Chevy Cavalier (green, no options, even had crank windows). The last used car I purchased was a 2003 Ford Taurus (silver). I named them both Captain Stinky (as I have named all the cars I've owned and will own).

No, but I was sitting shotgun when the car I was in got totalled. I still have a fear of being in the car when someone else makes left turn to clear the intersection when the light turns red. I'm too smart to trust people to stop for red lights (and too impatient to care about fact #1 when my light turns green and I'm first in line to go).

Honestly I can't give the "gritty" details, it's just on, at low volume. Mike Huckabee is blabbing on about his dumb book to S. E. Cupp, so I'm not missing out on much I don't think, but I like watching C-SPAN and try to pretend to feel smart ... :P

There's a bunch of cool people around, some interesting topics, and enough moderation to actually make sure that discussion stays reasonably civil and sensible, unlike some other sites I've passed through where "because FREE SPEECH" was an argument used by the mods to allow pretty much anything not illegal, regardless of the consequences. This is a good place, seemingly good people who can disagree politely, and the Science/maths slant, plus the opportunity to discuss the interesting bits of xkcd strips, are why I'm here.

I'll stick around for a while. I don't plan a time limit on how long I stay in a place online; usually it's until something like "Too few people to talk to", "<Incident> has occurred and that makes this not feel like a safe positive space any more" or "<Poster> has behaved towards me in a manner I don't find acceptable and no action is being taken" that trigger my departure from somewhere. That or I just find myself stretched too thin and don't feel I have time to read the fora any more, though that's more of a fading away than just leaving.

So. What's the most unusual way you've ever travelled somewhere?
Unstoppable force of nature. That means she/her/hers.

Probably when I travelled about 40 miles across the English Channel with my family in summer 2013. To go to several of the Channel Islands for sightseeing.

Got there by sailing on my father's little second-hand former racing yacht.

I go to China, to any city that's big from my point of view but not big from a Chinese point of view. Even if all expenses are paid, I'd like to stay with a guest family if possible to get to know the culture. I know so little about the Chinese culture even though I'm surrounded by Chinese people at work. Some other countries like Khazachstan are also not well-known to me, but they have way less population and economical influence.
I take 2 days to visit the main touristic places (Great Wall, Terra Cotta army, Forbidden City) since I've never been to China, and then I visit the family and get to know as much about their everyday life as possible.

I like the 2-player card-game variant of Settlers of Catan, at least the old version. It's got the good part of Settlers of Catan plus the good part of card games like Magic, where you can have your own deck and use the luck of dice strategically to your advantage.

I've never really cooked... sometimes I put a couple of things in the microwave for me and my brother. Once I had to do it for us two and my dad when my mum was out in the evening. It didn't go badly, but how good do microwaved ready meals get, really?

Sorry, took a while to think about that one. I would love to play a musical instrument. Played the violin (badly) as a kid but never got to the point where it gave me pleasure, but I love music. I would love to create music. However, as with learning more languages, I know I don't have the free time.
