Via Krefey, I’m not part of one of those weird pass-it-on things that shows up in the blogoblong on occasion.
Rules of the game:
- Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
- I respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
- You update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
- When others comment asking to be asked, ask them five questions.
And the questions I was asked:
- If you had the chocie to remove either Star Wars or Star Trek form existence, which would you choose to discard to the eether?
- If you could have any single (ie just one, not single as in not taken) woman be with you for life, who would you choose and why?
- Dumb but attractive, or intelligent but plain?
- If you could be anyone that has ever existed who would you be?
- If you could alter the principle laws of physiscs as we know them, what would you change?
OK, here goes:
- Tough call. I’m gonna go with Star Wars, much as I personally prefer it, because I think Star Trek has done more for us in terms of introducing and exploring new concepts, while Star Wars was kind of a samurai VS Nazis funfest. Of course, if this subsequently removed Indiana Jones from existence, I’d have to change my mind. And whichever one lets Red Dwarf stay, stays. Erk. This is why I’ve abstained from time travel.
- Suzie Marie Toller. Spoiler for Wild Things… She’s wealthy, attractive, intelligent, doesn’t let the rules and mores of society hamstring her ambitions, without being amoral.
- I’m definately intelligent but plain. Then again, given free reign I can also be dumb, and attractive in a gravitational sense. If you doubt that, lie next to me on a waterbed. ^_^
- I’m tempted to say Andrew Tridgell, but I’m not sure I’d do as good a job of being him as he does, and that’s not something I’d wish on the world. This also applies to most of the other names of existent or formerly existent that come to mind. The more I think about it, the more I realise that not only am I prolly the best at being me, I’m also currently the me I’m happiest with, or all the mes that have existed. Sure, there are mes I’d rather be (ie. exactly now, but ~50kgs lighter) but they haven’t existed, so they don’t count. Yes, it’s a cop-out. If you insist I pick someone, go with Tridge. He seems to have been doing (and still is doing) the sort of thing I love doing, for a long time now. Although, right now I’m at the start of that process (I hope) so I don’t think I’d gain much.
- I’d remove entropy, or at least make it some kind of controllable particle. The impending heat-death of the universe worries me.
