Interviewing the fora

Postby Gunfingers » Fri Feb 06, 2009 3:21 pm UTC

Instead of just interviewing one person, in this thread you post an interview question, and the next person to post will answer the question and pose another for whoever posts next.

I shall start:
So, unknown next poster, how old are you?

Because I get a lot from the fora. It ammuses me; it gives me something to do when I'm bored; it educates me; I have made friends through it; I get a sense of belonging due to the great community.

Yes, my wife & I have two cats.

1. Dory is a domestic short hair (or some such). Very pretty fur, almost has a violet tint to it.

2. Kala is a persian/himalayan mix and has beautiful fur and the sweetest blue eyes I've ever seen (which makes her pure evil, since noone can resist them).

What's the one vice you just can't quit?

That crispy clear kind of autumn afternoon weather that usually involves walking through dry leaves.

Right now, would you rather jump through time one hour back or one hour forward?

One hour back. Having more time is definitely better than having less time. That way I could spend an extra hour procrastinating and not doing my homework. As a bonus, jumping back in time is a more severe violation of physics and therefore would be more awesome.

Postby Zohar » Fri Feb 06, 2009 6:10 pm UTC

Wow, that's a tough one. I'm vegetarian, BTW.

Anyway, it would start with a great salad with lots of tasty stuff in it - apples, raisins, nuts, cherry tomatoes, lettuce etc. Also, there'll be freshly baked bread with excellent room-temperature butter and incredibly stinky cheeses. Maybe some antipasti to go with it.

For the main course, I think maybe whole wheat pasta with an interesting sauce.

For desert, something that combines hot and cold. Warm cake and ice cream, for example. Apple cakes are always good, or gooey chocolate cakes. Cheesecakes are usually cold.

This would probably change if it were hotter. Also, I'm assuming zero calories and as much space in my stomach as needed. :)

Humans probably taste gross because of all the inorganic and processed foods they eat, so I don't think I would ever eat them. Unless I was presented with a survival situation with no other solution.

Right now it's probably one of the new Threadless shirts just delivered to me, because they're hilarious and I really wanted some new t-shirts. Otherwise, probably my big grey wool coat, just for practicality's sake. And it gives me +5 serious points.

Ooh, tough one. I clench, and try to release it in a slow, controlled manner, while moving. That accomplishes three things: 1) people are less able to pin it on me, 2) over more area, the smell is less concentrated, and 3) hopefully I have enough ability to control the noise factor by controlling the speed of release.

How much pleasure do you get out of discovering something that nobody else around you has?

Funny you should ask. Regularly I don't go for too long, I forget lunch a lot, but even then I snack. But yesterday I just didn't eat at all, so unless there was a longer time that I don't remember, it would be 31 hours.

Is there any movie or band or book that you love so much that if someone said they hated it, not just didn't like it, but absolutely couldn't stand it, that you would have a hard time having a relationship with this person? Either romance or friendship.

I would probably make some sort of post alluding to an easy method with which to enlarge one's penis. Or how to procure cheap and authentic Rolex watches. Since, you know, it just so happens that the last post quite a few members make here is exactly this.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL, FOLKS! I would subvert the genre by backing up my claims with sweet, sweet truth! Essentially, my absence would be a small price to pay for a fora full of well-endowed, rolex-wearing gentlemen.

I think relativism of any sort leads to an inevitable stalemate, where no objectivity or empiricism can be agreed upon. Which eventually makes any sort of communication irrational, unstable, and valueless.
