Would you rather be an African elephant or an Asian elephant? Why?:
Would you rather freeze to death or burn alive? Why?:
To Freeze to death would be less painful, I'm fairly certain. And seeing as the pain involved is the only part of death that really worries me, I'll opt for that one.
Name three movies you like:
Only three? Fine: Brazil, Fight Club, and The Big Lebowski.
Name three books you like:
What's with this three limitation? The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Illusions, Die Unendliche Geschichte.
Have you ever fallen in love with a fictional character? Which one(s)? Why?:
As Darkmoon said: "Death, from Neil Gaiman's Endless. Doesn't everyone?" :)
And others I can't recall at this particular moment.
Republican, Democrat or other? Why?:
I feel the concept of an organized political party (of any kind) goes against the fundamental idea of a true democracy and drags the government in question closer to an oligarchy.
Attendance percentage at high school dances?:
What television shows do you watch regularly?:
A medical procedure.
The death penalty is...:
A form of punishment.
How do you take your coffee?:
If I'm making it, Turkish. Otherwise it really doesn't matter as long as there is no milk in it (milk substitute (soy, etc..) is just fine).
How do you take your tea?:
Straight, unless the style in question requires otherwise (like chai).
Who's your favorite teacher/professor?:
I preferr not to rank people like that, there are *many* teachers/professors that have left a profound impact on my life.
How do you feel about your parents?:
They are my parents, and will allways be such. I love them dearly, though they often make decisions I disagree with. They are a source for both great sadness and joy to me.
What sort of music do you listen to?:
List five or ten bands you listen to.:
InSoc, Flogging Molly, Sting, Dave Matthews Band, MSI, Autechre, 'Mu'-Ziq, Oingo Boingo, Tal Consort, Enigma, Primus, Eminem, DMX, U2, R.E.M., Prodigy, Tom Petty, Boiled In Lead, Moe!Staiano, CMU (even though they've split up), David Byrne, . . .
(and those are just the ones I listen to often!)
Do you use public transportation?:
yup, all the time. I don't have a car (mostly by choice).
Ever told someone you love him/her?:
Morning person, night person or both?:
er, neither? both? I really don't care all that much how light it is outside, as long as it's not so bright it hurts my eyes.
half-sister (who is just slightly over half my age).
What are your friends like?:
Amusement parks are?:
enjoyable enough, particular when they are crowded and the psychology/sociology nut in me can have a heyday people-watching.
annoyingly poorly done. They could be so good, if only they were implemented properly.
Any phobias, traumas or other weirdnesses?:
yes. To explain (or even list) them is beyond the scope of this post.
