    What is a better wording for the question about the senses, because no one's answered it properly the first time at all since I started asking it?

    It's not so much the wording, more likely people just reading it wrong.

    Best:
    • Sight: Haven't need Glasses in Years.
    • Smell: Strong, Canine-like.
    • Taste: It's just a good thing to have really.
    • Touch: Quite Sensitive, I hardly ever accidentally cut myself while cooking because I can feel where the knife is and where it would go if I were to start chopping.
    • Hearing: I can just hear the trains from a suburb away.

    Worst:
    • Sight: my eyes tend to tear up without any provocation, this blurs my sight quite a bit.
    • Smell: Strong odours cause me to gag.
    • Taste: some things I just wish I hadn't of tasted.
    • Touch: When I do hurt myself it hurts like hell.
    • Hearing: My Dad often wakes me up while he is going through his morning routine, and then it's the traffic on the road, then the kindergarten next door, then the neighbours ****ty hip-hop music, and my Sister and her boyfriend going at it in the next room.


    Is this better?

    One last try...

    Best:
    • Sight: The Human Body, The Human body is a very beautiful thing, if a bit awkward-looking, for the most part...
    • Smell: Garlic and anything with Garlic in it, pasta sauces, Italian food, Potatoes cooked any way or raw.
    • Taste: My friend Ben's Parent's Cooking, my Friend Renee's cooking, Bolognese, and Aussie Burgers (Beetroot is so delicious on a Burger *drool*).
    • Touch: Every feels fantastic, with one exception...
    • Hearing: SeaNanners, the sound of children playing, the familiar hum of my computer, Feminine voices.

    Worst:
    • Sight: The Human Body.
    • Smell: Most Cleaning Products, Garbage, Public Bathrooms.
    • Taste: Microwaved Vegemite, and Soap.
    • Touch: Stickiness from spilled drinks or sweets.
    • Hearing: Nails down a chalk-board, Frozen food being moved about in the Freezer, the sounds of Women or Children screaming in pain or crying.

    Microwaved Vegemite Toast to be exact, my toast went cold one day in the year 2000 when I was getting ready for Primary School, so my Mum zapped it in the Microwave.

    Microwaved vegemite, eh? That's certainly...interesting. Thanks for your time and for that marvelously unorthodox concept, Black_Pants_Guy. Hope you had fun. Please grab a copy of the home game and some refreshments of the non-microwaved variety as we move on to the next interview.

    1. A few. San, from Princess Mononoke was probably the first, also about the point where my attraction to girls with short haircuts became apparent.

    2. Intellect. Hey, the standardized tests say I'm smart, and I'm inclined to agree. Critical thinking, intuitive grasps, good memory, wide base of knowledge, all important to me. Sure as hell ain't my soccer skills.

    3. Gotta go with the classic. Roses have done much good work for me.

    4. Instant Ramon (Sapporo Ichiban). More seriously, I'm a bit of a nihilist, what is is, and I do my best to deal with reality as it presents itself.

    5. Books. Parents never let me get a console, had to share the PC with the whole house, ergo books. Lots and lots of books.

    6. Uh... in school. I dunno. It's hard to narrow the field down. I will say this; I've decided to decide that 'maturity' can be defined by 'not being ashamed/embarrassed by who you were 2 years ago.' I do not yet qualify for my own definition.

    7. ... Natalie Portman? Were repopulation off the table/not an issue I'd probably grab a good friend of mine. You don't know him, but we've got a total bromance going on.

    8. Sooooo many. History geeking out... I dunno. Talking to Gibbons would be fun, but I'm only saying that because I just read the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. (Is it telling that I'd rather talk to a historian than a historical figure?)

    9. I don't, particularly. Not much of a glory hound. I'd like to do good, but whether I'm remembered or not doesn't play into it.

    10. Ceiling River is watching you procreate.

    11. Force fields seem like a good 'minimize collateral damage' option. Plus, I like the idea of a 'defensive' power creatively used.

    12. Beards. Babies, I can do come the time. But a beard escapes me. Damn you Japanese heritage!

    13. I dunno. Once, in high school, a friend and I started using 'shovel' as an all purpose word, mostly just to mess with his dad.

    14. While o' plenty new Lent's.

    15. Gallows Pole. Technically an old song, but I've got the Led Zep cover in my head.

    16. Minotaurs are cool. Dunno about favorite.

    17. Each of us in our respective homes, going about our daily lives, quietly and subtle passing orders to lieutenants, making plots and counter plots, feints and counter feints. The whole world is our arena.

    18. Of course I defeated you, with a simple but elegant plot that cut through the Gorgundian Knot that was our game. I probably turned your right hand with cunning argument or, given compatible tastes, the ways of love.

    19. Serious. There's no end of silly here itP.

    20. Not sure, actually.

    ... OH GOD THERE'S SO MANY!

    1. MMm... MIB? Not familiar with the first.

    2. Here in sunny Colorado? I'm going to bet hells yes. Makes me wonder why I'm here answering questions.

    3. Spot. He's my Dalmatian. Had him since I was 2.

    4. Eggs. I'm good at eggs. I'd say my guacamole as well, but that's not like a whole meal. Usually.

    1. Hey look! Personal! It's a long story, actually, but short version is that 'JJ' is less embarrassing than 'JuJuBee.'

    2. Depends. If it's a stranger, I might be to embarrassed to correct them, or assume they know where their going. Some friends I'd tell right off, some I'd keep shut and try not to laugh.

    3. Did you check your pockets? I always do a 'slap slap slap' check on my pockets for wallet keys and cell phone whenever I stand up. I tend to fidget, so I often leave stuff on tables/chairs when I get up, but the slap check keeps me all together.

    4. At the moment, my Kindle

    1. And now, the million dollar question... Which Roman Emperor is known as 'the Apostate'?
    2. KITTY!
    3. Ummm... liberal arts major.
    4. Ooo... tough call. Recently, the Thog lamp-shading how the audience glosses over his evil was pretty fun. So that sticks out.
    5. Parson twolling Ansem.
    6. Eh. On the one hand it's good to keep the two separate, on the other, I don't want to have a 'persona' so much as just be me. So I'd say it doesn't at all, and/or that there's no difference between the two.
    7. Here, now? Divorced from the situation and deploying only rational logic? Based only on the qualifiers of 'loved one' vs. 'large number'? Strangers.
    8. The.
    9. Cellar door.
    10. Endorphins!
    11. The American political system! Half Life 2.
    12. Jimi Hendrix
    13. Girl talk. Gives me a migraine and I don't even get migraines.
    14. The American political system! (For real though)
    15. Unemployment.

    1. Solids, dark or earthy, and whom am I kidding. Whatever happend to be at the top of the drawer and weather appropriate.

    2. Not much of a hoarder. My cool stuff shelf is much more broad than deep. (That is, many unrelated objects)

    3. Just the one. And it's from a long dead PbP. I dunno. I'm kinda attached.

    4. *looks at student debts* *looks at current income/schedule* It's within the realm of the possible. Eventually.

    5. The Swedish stuff my grandmother used to bring over has held my heart for nigh unto two decades. Or like, a decade and a half. I dunno, details from before age 5 are kinda fuzzy.

    6. KITTIES! Well, not at my new place, but if I could.

    7. Nope. Not even ironically.

    1. Been better, but not all bad.

    2. Depends on the mood. I think when I was younger I liked red, still a good choice.

    3. Strawberries.

    4. Cookies and cream is a good 'anytime' option.

    5. Pah-nananah-nah-nah...

    6. NG

    7. Blue, though when I used to play I'd either go white-red, green-red, or white-blue-green.

    8. 42 is no more or less trite than any other answer I could give you.

    9a. A process within the human species which has been selected for within either individuals or populations, generally referring to the overriding of individual needs for large genetic/societal success.

    Also, one hell of a rollercoaster ride.

    9b. An important subset of the above.

    9c. A complicated issue. One the one hand, a highest goal. On the other, is it moral to restrict the freedom to restrict other people's freedom?

    10. N/A

    11. Human flesh.

    12. Carbon, mostly.

    13. First, a counter query: why don't we have a Playground Prom? I'd show up in a tux. Second... well, convention dictates that there be some sort of romantic/potential romantic interest between asker and askee. On the other hand, I, being single, asked platonic friends to my high school proms. On the other other hand, I did ask girls not guys, so it's not a totally neutered choice. So I'd say no one, because I am a bit of a romantic, and I go to dances with naught but my current SO. I might attend as part of a 'group' as opposed to coupled pairs.

    14. The Let's Play Archive got me hooked on the SA LP forums, and I've edited some Tropes for science content, (Lego Genetics, if I remember correctly. Just to point out that there is an Earth standard code and that taking genes from one species to another is MUCH easier than trying to code for a protein from the ground up. Like, ridiculously so... anyway.)

    15. I try not to. Consciously. Escapism is fun and all, but when you start to 'identify' with fictional characters... I dunno. It doesn't seem healthy to me. What is is, and I've got a pet peeve about bad analogies. The most accurate map of the territory is the territory. And I'm not going to find myself in someone else's book.

    16. Yeah, blisters are bad. Don't work well with sandals though.

    17. My grandmother will write me out of her will if I get a tattoo.

    18. ... myself?

    19. Biggest compliment... when the pretty girls smile at me when I hold doors open for them. It's a nice habit of courtesy to get into, and, here's a hint, it's the smile that makes the girls pretty.

    20. *extracts list of favorite authors* Anything mildly positive from any of these fellows would do.

    21. Me.

    22. Handclap to bro hug to catch the fingers to pound it.

    23. See you tomorrow then?

    24. Here?

    25. It's been a while, but it's basically been my internet handle for a while.

    26. I dunno. I like the people.

    1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?

    Not that I remember. Perhaps when I was a teenager.

    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

    Uhm. I have a Bachelor's? I can paint miniatures adequately? I can run a campaign, kind-of?

    3. Roses or orchids?

    Orchids. I have some right here. The roses stay outside.

    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?

    Food :P
    In more sense than one, though. I love good food, and I love cooking.

    5. How did you get to be so awesome?

    The same way anyone gets to be anything. Practice.

    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?

    Hmm. . I have just spent three months working out a problem in one of our lab machines and had to file for an extension on my master thesis because of that. If I knew the problem ten years ago, I'd have my diploma now

    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?

    Hmm. In general terms? A good looking, smart and funny woman who is attracted to me and also knows how to build shelter and scavenge for food, because I can't do any of those things. I don't personally know any person fulfilling all of these criteria, though. Perhaps some celebrity.

    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?

    I like explorers. Charles Darwin, maybe. Or Livingston. Or von Humboldt. I'd probably go with Darwin.

    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?

    I've always wanted to discover something important. Since all continents are taken already, finding a new animal species would be pretty nice.

    10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

    I don't like them much, really.

    11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?

    Mental domination. A mind controlled giant radioactive lizard would be fantastic for research. Hellooooo PhD.

    12. Beards or babies?

    Babies. Not that beards aren't cool, but I love beards.

    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?

    Tons, actually, all the time. The newest one I remember was last saturday, during a DnD game. "Factotate". Changing someone's character class to Factotum.

    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?

    Well, let's go by parts.

    "whilo": Totally a shortened form of "whilom", which I had to look up online. It means "at one time". "Plen" is from "pleni-", which I vaguely remember as being "full of". The ending "-ulent" means "abounding in".

    So:
    "Whiloplenulent" totally means "Having been full of something at an earlier time".
    "This glass of milk was full, but now, being empty, it is merely whiloplenulent."

    15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?

    I just had a Modron in a D&D game that made Shakespeare poetry "more logical". So, I have "Shall I compare thee to a specific point in time of a annual season that is seen as aesthetically pleasing by humans" stuck in my head. I.e "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day".

    16. Favorite mythological monster?

    The Kraken.

    17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?

    Final battles need lava. I propose a volcano lair.

    18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?

    Probably not. I'm a horrible fighter, so if I can't talk you out of it or bribe you, I'll lose.

    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?

    Silliness is fun. I get enough serious questions all day.

    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?

    Boredom. I'm also fairly certain I have answered these exact same questions before.

    Eldanny, can I call you Eldanny?
    Or is it Eldaniel?

    Sounds silly, really. If you need a nickname, I go by "Andy", usually.

    Anyway, where did you spend the best vacation ever?


    Thailand, somewhere in the north in the mountains for two weeks with a native guide. Not the "usual" backpacking, mind you. Still tourist vacation with hotels and busses. But I liked it.

    What color(s) do you prefer to wear?

    Dark green and blues I like best, but for convenience, I also have a lot of black.

    What do you like to collect?

    I have a collection of warhammer miniatures, among them some I never play with but just like to have because they are pretty. I also collect coins from countries I was on holiday to. I also have a plant collection from old botany lessons and the post cards I was collecting as a kid are still gathering dust on the attic.

    How many avatars do you have?

    This one and a steampunk version from an old theme week. For some reason, I never have any good ideas on what to do for theme weeks, or my requests get ignored.

    Are you ever coming to GenCon?

    Very unlikely, as much as I'd like to. Intercontinental flights are out of my price range, and to even get to the US, I'd need a biometric password, which has a waiting time of near a year and costs hundreds of dollars.

    What type of chocolate do you prefer?

    White. I also enjoy all kinds of fillings: nuts, honey, spices...

    What type and how many pets do you have?

    None, sadly. I'd love to have all manners of pets, but I don't have the time, the space or the money to properly care for them.

    Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel?
    [/QUOTE]

    I don't think we actually have a channel that just does weather around here. But I do a lot of field work over the summer, so the weather homepage is actually my browser's start page at work, and I have a weather RSS feed.


    What question would you like to be asked?

    I have no preference either way, here.

    What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?

    Snuggliness. (Is that a word? My browser says it isn't). But my standards for cute might be different from some people. I think lizards, spiders and octopodes are just as cute as baby kittens. Also, it should probably be an indoor pet.


    What is the square root of Pi?

    Pi is not a tree, and trees rarely have square roots.

    What's your favorite OOTS strip?

    Can't name one from the top of my head. But I like the really silly jokes.

    What's your favorite Erfworld strip?

    I don't actually read Erfworld.

    How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?

    IRL I'm cripplingly shy and would never talk about my personal life. I also have "deer in the headlight syndrome": when asked a surprising question, I can effortlessly manage to just stare at someone in silent shock until they drop the question and talk on by themselves to stop the silence. I've managed several minutes before. I also don't like to be close to people, and I hate crowds. In here, I'd like to think that I'm moderately personable, and very wordy.

    Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
    Loved ones. I only feel bad for strangers on an abstract level.

    What is your favorite word?

    Splanchnic. It's delicious.

    What is your least favorite word?

    Deadline.

    What makes you enthusiastic?

    Weekends. Field Work. Cold weather always improves my mood, too.

    What disappoints you?

    The wrong weather. Long laboratory sessions. Results I just know can't be right but will take a week to redo (had some of those, recently).

    What sound do you love?

    Rain. Howling Wind.

    What sound do you hate?

    Cars. The cockerel my neighbour has in his garden. (Clearly illegal, but no one cares). People talking loudly in public.

    What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

    I've always wanted to be an explorer, really, but that's not an expression. Hmm. Sailor?

    What profession would you not like to participate in?

    I've done factory work at an assembly line as a holiday job. It's mind-numbing and you literally feel yourself getting stupider with every hand movement.

    None within arms reach. Seven kinds in my fridge at the moment, not counting grated cheeses or products containing cheese.

    Will you go quietly when they come for you?

    Unlikely. As a kid (and teenie) I was known to bite, kick, flail and scream. I doubt I have changed that much since then.

    What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?

    Distance. Or words. Directed to someone else, who can kill them for me.

    From is more likely

    A crush on a fictional character? I suppose I had a crush on any of Charlies Angels when I was a kid... but that would have been an actress as opposed to a fictional character. So The real answer would be "no, not really".

    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

    Self-confidence. I look ten years older than I actually am, but act ten years younger. Why? Because I can!

    3. Roses or orchids?

    Roses.

    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?

    Coffee. Beer. Repeat.

    5. How did you get to be so awesome?

    I cannot answer this question under copyright infringements. My publicist has asked that this question be delayed until you all buy my book "Smellie doesn't necessarily mean stinky..."

    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?

    I wish I had kept making beer ten years ago, rather than dropping off until recently. What I could have been brewing now... *daydreams*

    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?

    Mountain_Faerie.

    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?

    Hmmmmmmm... I'm not really sure. I know so many cool people now, that I don't know who else I would have liked to speak to. Maybe Tolkien.

    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?

    I want to be remembered for my staunch refusal to ever purchase "Just for Men" hair-dye.

    10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

    What's a lolcat?

    11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?

    What super power would I want to use? Gigantic decaf tranquilizers. There is no other documented use for decaf...

    12. Beards or babies?

    Beards.

    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?

    Effimation. If two people spontaneously perform the same act at the same time. Not to be confused with 'jinx', as in when two people say the same thing at the same time.

    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?

    no.

    15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?

    Anything by Jethro Tull.

    16. Favorite mythological monster?

    Satyr.

    17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?

    In a coffee shop. Critiquing local art and music. It will be a war waged by seeing who is more hipster.

    18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?

    I'm a friggin' hippie dude! You can't hang with this! Unless, you happen to wear a beret and have a soul patch. Then I'm screwed.

    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?

    Blue.

    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?

    What else am I supposed to do on a lazy Saturday?
    Unofficial Brew-Meister in the playground. Just ask!
