  2. 1. Biologically seen, I'd call myself sixteen. Which is what I am anyway.

    2. Never trying. If you fail, you can at least say you've attempted it- And that's something in its own right.

    3. Most of the time because we have to.

    4. I'm not much of a talker, but I am human- And I can't realistically do everything I say I'm going to. So, saying.

    5. Injustice.

    6. Working in a biochemistry laboratory.

    7. I always try to improve myself and I'm slowly working towards the career I'd like.

    8. I'd probably be taking less risks.

    9. Somewhat. I've chosen my high school and organized my social life.

    10. Doing things right, to be honest. I'm a bit of a perfectionist.

    11. I'd tell them.

    12. Live life without ruining other people's lives.

    13. Yes.

    14. Well, yeah. My earliest writings when I was a kid were absolutely horrible- A garbled, absurd mess. But I'm sort of content with the way they are now, even though they can still use refining and improving, and always will.

    15. I hold my fork in my right hand and my knife in my left. Even in fancy restaurants.

    16. Because different people find different things entertaining.

    17. Parasailing; The cost and the lack of a possibility to do it in what is the flattest country in the world.

    18. I should probably throw away the two halves of my broken DS Lite.

    19. I'd move to Luxemburg because it's so pretty there, and I'd still be close to my fatherland.

    20. No. xD

    21. Worried genius. Being worried is something that fluctuates, and if I were a joyful simpleton I'd get into accidents much quicker.

    22. Because I am who I am.

    23. In the way of being someone anyone can talk to about whatever they want, yes.

    24. Losing touch with a close friend. It feels much more awkward.

    25. Having met you people. ♥

    26. Never be able to make new ones. It'd make life difficult, but at least I'd know what I'm now happy to know of.

    27. If you're clever enough to get around challenging, yes.

    28. No.

    29. No to both.

    30. Probably the time I spent with my first girlfriend.

    31. When I heard a certain song on YouTube, of a genre most of my closest friends could guess. :p

    32. When you're able to.

    33. Everything you have achieved so far.

    34. Yes.

    35. Because they are founded and run by humans.

    36. Yes.

    37. I don't have a job as of now, but if it was the job I want to have, no.

    38. Pffffft- I'm in school. Can I choose a midway? |D

    39. No.

    40. Yes.

    41. Everyone.

    42. Attractive, yes. Famous, no.

    43. Being alive is a biological state, truly living is enjoying life.

    44. Never.

    45. Because the first direct result is almost always a negative one.

    46. Wear more... Flamboyant isn't really the word, but clothing and accesoires.

    47. Whenever I'm cycling to and from school.

    48. Music, my friends and family, creative writing. And yes.

    49. No.

    50. Depends on what the decisions are on.

    That was fun. ^^

    1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Ageless. Mentally I don't have an age, I'm just me.
    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying is, in the moral abstract, worse, but failing can have negative practical consequences. They kinda balance out.
    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? Because without doing the things we don't like, we can't do the things we do like.
    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? I'm a writer. Speech is my business. Is saying more than doing so bad?
    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? I'd double the planet's size. More room for all 7 billion people seems like a good idea to me.
    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Doing absolutely nothing in peace and quiet. Besides, happiness would make for an awful economy. Nothing would ever get done.
    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? I'm settling for what I'm doing, for lack of a better option.
    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? I wouldn't. I live my life how I live my life. No amount of philosophising would change what I'm comfortable with.
    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? I haven't at all. My single attempt at controlling my own life and doing what I really wanted to do was thwarted at the last minute.
    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? I'm worried about both, to the point of inaction.
    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do? I defend her to the best of my ability. As I have done before, and as I hope I always will.
    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Offering someone advice who doesn't understand language is a fool's errand.
    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one? Yes.
    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? Are they not intrinsically linked? True creativity is doing things differently in the pursuit of perfection. Doing things differently simply just for the pursuit of unobtainable perfection can be considered insanity.
    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people? Many things. But then, everyone else does many things differently from other people. The trick is to find people whose differences line up and stick with them.
    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? Because being happy is subjective. Everyone's form of happiness is different.
    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back? I want relative freedom. Practicality is holding me back.
    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Many things. But the problem is more that they won't let go of me.
    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? Canada, for no good reason.
    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? Only once. Pushing it more does literally nothing.
    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? The latter. Happiness is more important than intelligence.
    22.Why are you, you? Because I am not anyone else.
    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? I couldn't judge. I would certainly hope so.
    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? In this day and age, the latter. You can always reconnect with the former, the latter is harder to do.
    25.What are you most grateful for? Relative stability.
    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? I'd rather lose my old memories. As nice as some of them are, I believe in forward-thinking.
    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first? No, it's not. But it's easier to choose what is reasonable and go with that.
    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true? Yes. I survived.
    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now? No. And no, it doesn't.
    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special? I wouldn't remember, honestly. Any given memory is special because it can't be recreated, however.
    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? When in harmony and conversation with genuinely nice people.
    32.If not now, then when? When it is time.
    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose? Everything you have achieved before.
    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? Yes. But silence is the best form of conversation.
    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? The religions don't cause the wars. The people interpreting their words do.
    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil? No. Not with a human, biased mind.
    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? No. A million dollars is not a lot of money. And I wouldn't want to stop working because of a single windfall.
    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? The latter. Work you enjoy isn't really work.
    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? Probably closer to a thousand. But it's a day I know, a day I'm comfortable with. I understand it, it understands me, and I'm safe in it. Is that so bad?
    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? Too long ago.
    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? Those that meant the most to me.
    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? That would depend on what happens in the last 10 years of my life. But broadly, no.
    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living? Being alive is surviving. Managing to carry on until the next day, and the day after that. Living is having a reason to be alive: surviving for the sake of something important. Something tangible, and irreplaceable.
    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?If you know it's right, you probably wouldn't be calculating risks and rewards. Calculation is to determine what is right.
    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Because of practical ramifications that result from our mistakes.
    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? I would live more.
    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? As soon as I read these words.
    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? I love things - or people - that give me a reason for existing and the knowledge that my life means something.
    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that? I don't remember what I did last week. I don't really remember what I did yesterday. Five years ago is long gone.
    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? A mixture of both. Some decisions are inherently out of my hands.[/quote]

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?

    Considering I don't remember it, then no, it was not important.

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

    Every memory from my childhood is special to me.

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

    Everyday.

    32.If not now, then when?

    As soon as I have the means to do so.

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

    My life.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?

    Yes.

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

    Because it is human nature to seek conflict.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

    Yes. My instincts always lead me right.

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

    I would not because I love my chosen career path. I would instead give the money to my dad so that he may quit his and live a comfortable retirement.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?

    If I enjoy what I do then it isn't considered work to me, it's considered playtime so I'd be getting both.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?

    More like 23 times. This is my 23rd December 23rd.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

    A few days ago.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?

    No one. I would instead wait until tomorrow to begin my rebellion against the world as I would no longer have my morality chains holding me back.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?

    Hell no. My life is more important to me then that nonsense.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

    Your state of mind.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?

    The moment the opportunity to act is upon you.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

    Pride.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

    Nothing because I already don't give a damn about what people think of me.

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?

    When I read that question.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?

    I love in my own way and those I love understand that.

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?

    I don't remember things from five years ago today so five years from now I won't remember things from today.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

    I never listen to what other people tell me to do unless I agree with them and think it's a good idea. Anything I do is because I want to or because my instincts say it's a good idea.

    1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

    I have always been here.

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?

    Depends on what it is that you're trying or not trying.

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

    Because sometimes we need to do things we don't like to be able to do the things we like, and some of us can't do all the things we would like to be able to do due to time constraints, talent constraints or I don't even. Point of the matter, that's life for you. Next.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

    When all herps are derped, will you hurr more than you have durred? Seriously, don't you just LOVE formulaic questions like this?

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

    There is far too much that is just plain wrong about this planet for me to choose just one.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

    Whose happiness? Your personal happiness, or that of other people? Be more specific please.

    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?

    Honestly you can't generalize that question. There are bits of this and bits of that to everything.

    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

    If the grandmother had wheels, would she be called a bus? Most likely, if the average human life span was 40 years, society as a whole would be different, and far be it for me to speculate how humanity would fuck THAT up. XD

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?

    To an average degree, I suppose.

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?

    Both.

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?

    Sounds like one hell of an awkward situation. And it would probably change my opinion of said people greatly. >>;

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

    ... A newborn child would not be capable of understanding what I have to say to it anyway, so the point is moot. I would probably take a page out of Pratchett/Gaiman and say "Welcome to the world. You get used to it after a while."

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?

    Depends on the degree of closeness said loved one has, the magnitude of the lawbreaking and how much I could get away with it. I love how generalizing questions like this tend to be when in reality, you'd have NO freaking idea what you'd do if an actual situation demanding it would come along.

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?

    Insanity and creativity often go hand in hand. I often see the insanity going alongside creativity, but I don't think I've ever seen pure insanity as creative.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

    I hold my writing utensils in a strange way.

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

    Because I'm not everyone. Zetta duh.

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?

    It's a tossup between learning Japanese, learning to fuck around with Audio Software and learning to fuck around with metalworking. All of which are stopped by lack of time, lack of how to figure it out, and to be honest a bit of a lack of drive too.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

    I think everyone does, intentionally or not, and they let go of it when they're ready.

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

    Off the fucking planet, that's where. Humanity is rapidly ruining everything else.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

    No, because I know it doesn't.

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

    I'd rather be somewhere in the middle.

    22.Why are you, you?

    Because I am. That's all there is to say about it.

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

    Sometimes, I guess.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?

    Dunno. Can't say I've faced either.

    25.What are you most grateful for?

    Good question. I'm not sure.

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

    Both sound equally depressing.

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

    Probably.

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?

    Can't say it has.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?

    I can't say I remember a specific time five years ago when I was extremely upset. Which only shows how much it matters, I suppose. XP

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

    Shrug.

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

    Shrug.

    32.If not now, then when?

    Again, shrug.

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

    Once again... Shrug.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?

    Nope. The scene described makes no sense.

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

    Because they don't support love, and because humans are frigging idiots.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

    I don't believe there's a universal good and evil. Just a whole damn lot of perspectives. It's possible to know how you feel about things and how certain societies consider things. I suppose that if you truly believe in something, then doubt isn't going to factor into it unless something shakes your beliefs to the core. But I'm going on a tangent here. XD

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

    I don't have a job, so I wouldn't be able to quit it, wouldn't I? XP

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?

    That honestly depends on how I 'm feeling at any given moment! xD

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?

    Sometimes, but not always.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

    I dunno, usually my armblades light my way.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?

    Realistically speaking, anyone I would want to visit are more than a day of traveling away from me. So I guess I'd spend time with my family.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?

    Pfff. No.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

    Being alive is a biological condition. Feeling like you're "Truly Living" is a completely subjective emotion.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?

    Depends on how much you trust your own judgment.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

    Because sometimes the repercussions of a mistake could do a hell of a lot of damage, and then avoiding a similar mistake in the future may prove rather meaningless.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

    I don't think there's anything I'd do differently, honestly. XD

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?

    When I read this question, my attention was pulled to it. Hurrr. XD

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?

    I love a lot of different things and I'm pretty sure that my actions express it. ^^

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?

    My memory is not THAT good. Either way, I've done absolutely nothing of consequence in the past few days, so. XP

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

    I find that there are always some things inherently out of our control, others that are all us, and some that are a influenced by us and by others to various degrees. I find there's a healthy mix of all in my life right now. ^^

    Welp. Closer inspection of my mind after answering these questions indicates absolutely no change in the degree of freedom it has. In other words, the thread title makes an empty promise and the original person responsible to the cliche title of this copypasta should be sacked. And by 'Sacked' I mean 'clubbed over the head, stuffed into a sack and thrown into the river.

    1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Forever in teens. I'm immature but mature when needed.

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying. You're left with the regret of not trying, whereas failing does hurt but at least you know you tried.

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? Sometimes we do things we don't like because we have to, to get to what we do
    wanna do. If we don't do things we want to then we mustn't have really wanted to do them.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? Both about the same. I talk a lot through being a journalist, however I'm not one who does nothing.

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? That people don't look badly on those who're different.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? What I do now.

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? Only in this past year have I felt like I'm truly controlled it.

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? Both. I like to do the right thing, but everything I do must be done right for my pride.

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start
    criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do? I will stand up for her. Friends mean everything to me and I will not see one hurt.

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? They wouldn't understand what I said so I wouldn't.

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one? Of course.

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? All creativity can be seen as insanity, it depends fully on your outlook on life.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people? Everyone is different, therefor everything everyone does is different in it's own way.

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? Again, everyone is different. Not everything I love will make others happy.

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back? Currently, write an article for Bulbanews. What's holding me back is not having a laptop which works until Sunday.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Yes, shyness.

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? Somewhere in the US. I have friends there and it sounds nice.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? Just once, pushing it more won't speed it up.

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? joyful simpleton.

    22.Why are you, you? Just because I am me.

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Always.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? Both are bad. Losing touch with friends is bad.

    25.What are you most grateful for? Being given the chance to do what I've wanted this year. I've done well and I'm proud of myself. :)

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Lose old ones. Not being able to make new ones would be a very sad thing.

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first? Of course.

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true? Yeah, quite a lot but I'm over it.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now? I do remember it, and no it doesn't matter now.

    32.If not now, then when? ...

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose? I haven't gotten it yet, but I'll lose everything I've managed to earn.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? Yes

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? I have little idea.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil? No, good and evil is not set in stone. The evil can become good and the good evil.

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? No.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? More work I enjoy doing.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? No, everyday is different.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? earlier this year.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? My closest friends and family.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? No, being famous and attractive doesn't interest me enough to lose 10 years.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?Being alive is being alive but not feeling like you're alive to be doing something. Being truly alive is knowing you are doing something which proves you are alive.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right? You stop calculating the minute you go for something, and I don't anyway.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? It's human nature. And we're scared of what people will think of us when we make said mistake.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Nothing, apart from be a bit more reckless in things.

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? This afternoon in the rain.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? I love my friends and a lot of different things. My actions everyday express this.

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day
    before that? Or the day before that? Probably not, I have a lame memory.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? Depends on said decision.
     
  8. 1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

    As old as I am.

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

    Because we don't know how to make sense.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

    The pen is mightier than the sword, but actions speak louder than words. I've said what I've done and done what I've said I'll do.

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

    The world? Pfft. I'll do the world a favor and give myself a damn tan.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

    Not working.

    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?

    I believe in what I do and settle for just...doing.

    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

    The same way I would with any other lifespan: find a way to lengthen it.

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?

    I'd like to say quite well.

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?

    I don't worry.

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?

    I defend her, simple as that. I won't stand for people talking about others behind their backs, especially if it isn't true.

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

    I wouldn't. No sense talking to something that won't understand me.

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?

    Depends on how serious a danger they are in.

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?

    Reverse that.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

    Yeah, I'm just different.

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

    Because generalizations suck.

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?

    Rule the world, but sadly, I don't think people would like that.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

    Oh, thank you. I forgot I needed to pee.

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

    The UK, and hang out with the awesome members over there.No offense to awesome members here and other places, but there's just a larger amount in a much smaller area over there.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

    If it did, I'd actually do that more.

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

    I don't worry, but I'm not exactly the joyful type. I choose "Wookiee" as my answer.

    22.Why are you, you?

    Because fuck you, that's why. I love that quote, sorry.

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

    Eh, don't really care.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?

    Um, I have internet, and friends on that. I doubt the loss of one friend will affect me that much.

    25.What are you most grateful for?

    Star Wars: The Old Republic.

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

    I don't remember much anyway XD

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

    If you need to challenge it, then it isn't really truth, is it?

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?

    My video games haven't caught on fire, so no.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?

    I can't say I've ever been upset, even mildly.

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

    Receiving my N64 when I was 4. Thanks for setting me on the gaming track, Aunt Patty :D

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

    Any time I'm on stage, acting.

    32.If not now, then when?

    Any additional times I'm acting.

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

    Nothing.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?

    Yes. Telepathy ftw.

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

    Just because they support love doesn't mean they won't do whatever's necessary to bring that "love" everywhere.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

    Yes. I often ask myself, "What would Qui-Gon do?"

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

    No. That job could earn me additional monies.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?

    If I enjoy doing it, I'd obviously like to do it as often as possible.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?

    Each day is a unique experience.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

    I usually light the way with my glow-in-the-dark paleness.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?

    The immortality-giving man.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?

    My ideal job has me becoming famous, so no.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

    Being alive is existing. Truly living is having and understanding a reason to exist.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?

    That would depend on how much you actually care about something.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

    we are afraid of failure, but just because you make a mistake doesn't mean you fail.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

    I don't care if people judge me. I just do things.

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?

    I'm an actor, so I pay attention to my breathing a lot.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?

    I always express my love of things.

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?

    Yes.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

    Both.
     
  9. 1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
    Over 9,000?

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?
    Never trying.

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
    Because to do the things we like, we must first do the things we don't like. Or something like that.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
    Hopefully not.

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
    Too many changes I'd like to make to just choose one.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
    Playing video games and drawing.

    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
    I'd like to think that I'm doing what I believe in, but there's always room for error.

    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
    I think society as a whole will be different. Impossible to tell.

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
    A high degree, in some things.

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
    The only things worth doing right are the right things.

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
    I set them straight.

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
    Don't be an asshole.

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?
    Depends on the person and the law.

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
    Welcome to my daily life.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
    I eat tuna sandwiches in a weird way.

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
    Because everyone has different tastes?

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
    I want to learn how to play an instrument. I'm just very, very lazy.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
    No.

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
    Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
    I do it simply to spite the elevator.

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
    I already am a worried genius, and lemme tell y'all, it sucks.

    22.Why are you, you?
    Little bit of nature, lots of nurture, the usual.

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
    I certainly hope so.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
    They're both terrible in their own way.

    25.What are you most grateful for?
    Oxygen's pretty great.

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
    Lose all of the old ones.

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
    No. It is not possible to know any truth without the proof won from challenging it.

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?
    I don't think so, but if it ever does, I have contingencies.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
    I don't even remember five years ago.

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
    If I can't remember five years ago, how am I supposed to remember my childhood?

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
    Three weeks in August, though apparently it was not as requited.

    32.If not now, then when?
    Tomorrow. Procrastination is fun.

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
    Your pride and self-worth.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
    Yeah, I suppose.

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
    Because humans suck at interpreting meaning from text.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
    Of course not. They're human words.

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
    Don't have a job, but in this economy a million dollars wouldn't be worth quitting anything.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
    Less work.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
    Yes.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
    Brighter days than these.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
    Can't make that choice.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
    No.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
    I'm in the state of being alive right now. I am not truly living. It's a subtle difference.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
    If it's right, then now. If it's only what you think is right, than keep evaluating.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
    Because we're tired of hearing the collective laughter of a thousand idiots at our failures.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
    A lot of things.

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
    Now. Thanks a lot, question.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
    Many things. I hope my actions have shown my love, but I am not arrogant enough to assume that they have.

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
    Ahahaha no.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
    Hopefully for myself, but chances are there's influences from others.
     
  10. 1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
    Gooooosh. I’m one of those people who looks quite a bit younger than I am. My little sister (younger by six years) hardly ever gets handed the kid’s menu in a restaurant—that happens to me. :p If I was just looking at a picture of myself in a plain white t-shirt and jeans (clothing can signal age differences) I’d say thirteen or fourteen instead of seventeen.

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?
    As with many things, it depends on the situation. However, being the academic that I am, at times failing is worse for your GPA then never taking a course, so often I would say failing.

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
    Because we’re stupid and smart at the same time. We know what is good for us, even if it may hurt. Depending on the person, that may be delayed and substituted with a less-helpful alternate activity.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
    Well, if you’re talking while doing it for sure.

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
    Biodiversity. Yes, extinction is natural and way to help maintain creatures that can fulfill or make new niches effectively, but humans are altering the rate of extinction by our harmful activities. With a double hit, the increased biodiversity wish can take out pollution and other harmful substances as well.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
    That would depend on the person. If you spawned happiness dollars like drops in Minecraft, it would be at whatever profession one liked best. If the drops came from other people, that would be much harder to figure. However, I think that professions such as bakeries and circuses would be good, as people love eating and laughing.

    For me personally, I would be quite happy studying my little gerbils all over Mongolia. In more objective terms, rodentology would make me happy, or at the very least, a zoologist with a specialty in rodents.

    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
    I’m sort of in-between, due to money issues. One aspect is my work at McDonald’s. I rarely went there before I got that job, but I need the money to go to the best college for me to make the world better for my gerbie babies, as well as the animals of the world.

    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
    Forty years? I would probably do the same in the meantime, but after I have gotten my dream job (which isn’t that far-fetched—research science in zoology and rodentology) and reached all the legal ages, I’m doing dangerous things like sky diving, trying fugu, and so on.

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
    Dude, I’m seventeen. My parents control a lot. Other than the little things like choice of extra curricular activities (within reason) and clothes, they still determine where I’m going to school, what menial jobs I take for money currently, how I use that money, and so often. However, when taking school into account, I control a lot. How well I do is connected to what I can do in the future with my freedom when I am out of the house.

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
    Doing things right. For some reason, I’m a stickler for results.

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
    I would probably be quiet and take it for a while, then blurt out defenses when the anger grows too much.

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
    It’s a baby. It can’t understand something as complex as that. However, let’s say I mentor this child (after somehow winning my affections or sense of duty) to about nine or ten when they begin to get a sense of abstract thought. My advice would be simple—“What you do now with what you can control can affect what you do in the future. Think, and distinguish what can and can’t help you.”

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?
    It depends which loved one (my parents had me late, and no menace is behind this at all, but they don’t have much time left), what situation, and what laws I would break.

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
    I don’t think I’ve lived enough to see that.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
    For sure, I bet few people lick their guinea pig to win his affection in more animalistic grooming. :p

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
    Because they’re not me. It may be simple, but it makes sense. Not everyone will like everything.

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
    I’ve always been tempted to see if I could break down a wall with my fists or feet, even if it was just drywall, to test my strength. However, I’m fearful of the consequences of mess, severe injury, repair, and angry landlords.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
    The carbon dioxide in my lungs from me holding my breath for some reason.

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
    Chicago, Illinois. I have a feeling I will never be able to drive well, so having everything (including some awesome museums) nearby in a city with a lot of flavor would be great.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
    Occasionally. I just like pushing it. :p

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
    Worried genius. I’m fearful of ever losing my intelligence.

    22.Why are you, you?
    I am me because I have a certain, specific gene combination and life experiences.

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
    Not always.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
    A good friend moving away, as I will have more difficulty contacting them.

    25.What are you most grateful for?
    Bah! I can’t decide. If it had to be one thing, I would say logic.

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
    Because I have things and people that can help me regain memories, or ideas of them, I would prefer the former. I may not be the same ‘me,’ but I’ll still have a loving environment.

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
    Science says no. Everything must be tested.

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?
    No.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
    No, and no.

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
    What, am I casting a Patronus now? :p
    I would say it was getting my first gerbil. I went over to my little sister’s friend’s house and picked up the gerbil she was too young to care for properly. My little Jeran made me so happy. What makes it special is that I carried the life of something tangible (well, touching fish could kill them) in my hands.

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
    My black belt test. The adrenaline and racing heartbeat when I saw the belt being carried under my sensei’s arm was so exhilarating. Everyone got tacklehugged. The feeling I was worthy of something, finally good at something unrelated to school was amazing. That was nearly a year ago.

    32.If not now, then when?
    Further in the past, I was ecstatic when I got Pokemon Diamond. It was not only an awesome game, but a gateway to friends as I had an icebreaker with something we shared.

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
    An enjoyable job and comfortable pay, if poor school performance is being mentioned.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
    With my boyfriend. He is so kind and understanding of my shortcomings and differences.

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
    Because humans are animals at their basest level. We kill those different and possibly harmful to us to protect ourselves

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
    No.

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
    The current McDonald’s one, yes, as that would pay for school for the rest of my life. The remainder would go into savings and wouldn’t be touched.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
    More work that I enjoy. For example, at my summer job at a humane society, I worked nine hour days. At the end, I was tired, but I loved the job. At McDonald’s, I work 2.5 hour, and I’m dead exhausted. It doesn’t help that I hate the job.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
    No. Days may carry a similar pattern, but the events in them can differ.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
    If this is symbolic, I cannot recall. I’m usually quite thorough with a cause that is controversial.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
    My boyfriend. Yes, I may be skipping out on my parents, but they mean something different to me. It’s not bad, but the connection we had is withering because of my steps to independence. My wonderful man is a connection that I chose to make, other than being happy with what I was given. That’s one difference between friends and family I find important.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
    Bah ha ha! I’m happy with my looks, but famous in what way? If it was for a scientific breakthrough, yes. If it was for a YouTube video, heck no.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
    I don’t know for sure, but I think the latter means exploring everything and trying new things instead of staying in a rut.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
    When you need to make a life-threatening decision right then.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
    Because we fear repeated consequences.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
    I would go naked in good weather. Clothes are restricting, and it would be nice to be free for a bit without being labeled a sex offender. It may be silly, but it would be nice to do every once in a while.

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
    Just a few seconds ago when I read this. Before then, when I was making sandwiches at McDonald’s.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
    For objects and causes and such, I love animals, though I am not one of those people that cry at euthanasia and animal death in general. Unless it was unjustifiable, I understand that those things happen. However, as mentioned before, humans are accelerating the death of species. My recent actions haven’t been many, unfortunately. At least I haven’t been buying endangered animal products and have been practicing basic energy saving procedures.

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
    I will remember bits and pieces of the most distinct parts of Christmas, as it was a holiday of note, but probably not the days before it.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
    It is a combination. For some things, I can’t make the decision for various reasons, such as inexperience and age. I cannot think of important decisions I have made outside school already.
    Darn. I just realized how most of my life has revolved around school. :p

    WARNING: Heavy snark approaches.

    1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

    I'd be 23, because I'd still have been born on the same day despite not being aware of it. Also, this question is retarded.

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?

    Failing, since if you never try you clearly don't care enough about the endeavour to make it worth your time anyway.

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

    Because that's life.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

    Considering I never shut up half the time, probably.

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

    I'd like to scorch a small town by the name of Bolton with a large laser, burning it to a crisp and rendering it completely uninhabitable until the end of time.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

    Comedian, if I had to guess. This question is also stupid.

    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?

    Bit of both.

    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

    I probably wouldn't.

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?

    Probably controlled it a bit too much. I like control.

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?

    Doing things right. I generally have no issue doing things others would consider morally wrong if it gets me what I want in life.

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?

    Tell them to shut up and drink their god-damn tea. In silence.

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

    I wouldn't, because newborn babies can't understand English yet. There's another stupid question.

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?

    Yeah, and I'd do it again.

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?

    To me, insanity and creativity usually go hand-in-hand - wherever you see one, you usually find the other.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

    I generally do most things differently to everyone else.

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

    They have a conscience, I don't, so I find trolling awesome and they think it's "mean."

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?

    Nothing and nothing.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

    No.

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

    I'd probably go to Kefalonia. Even if the financial issues creep up on me while I'm there, I'd probably end up dying from sunstroke long before it ever had a serious impact on me.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

    Yes and no.

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

    Genius is always better than simpleton, so genius.

    22.Why are you, you?

    Why are you repeatedly asking stupid-ass questions?

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

    Hell no. My personality is the kind that'd clash with itself if I was around someone else like me, which sort-of prevents me from ever getting along with...me.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?

    Probably the latter since it can be avoided.

    25.What are you most grateful for?

    Being me, because me is awesome.

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

    I'd gladly lose all my old memories in a heartbeat to be honest, most of them are a waste of brain-space.

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

    Yes, you don't have to act like a petulant teenager to understand the truth.

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?

    Once, but it wasn't worth worrying about anyway. You see the true value of things when they are lost, and that particular thing turned out to be worthless.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?

    Nothing happened 5 years ago. You like throwing in these asinine questions don't you?

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

    I can't remember that far back, and even if I could Question 26 would have deleted it by this point.

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

    When I left Bolton, because Bolton is a shit-hole that deserves to be nuked.

    32.If not now, then when?

    When should Bolton be destroyed? As soon as possible.

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

    Still working on the gigantic laser, so bear with me.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?

    No, because conversations generally require talking by definition. Dumbass question...

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

    Because love is the root of all evil, obviously.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

    No, because everyone has a different idea of what good and evil are. Except love, that's obviously pure evil and anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong.

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

    Probably not.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?

    The latter.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?

    No.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

    Never, because I usually turn the lights on before I enter dark rooms. Wait, was that an expression? Then it was stupid.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?

    This is realistically improbable on so many levels it isn't worth thinking about.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?

    Let's see, reduce my life expectancy for two things I couldn't care less about? No thanks.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

    The former sucks and the latter is awesome.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?

    Why not just cut the crap and do what is right from the beginning? You save so much time that way.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

    There are other ways to learn, and those other ways tend to be less humiliating/painful.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

    Come on, this is me, I do not give two shits what you peasants think of me. I would do nothing differently

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?

    Just now that you mentioned it, ass.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?

    Love is evil. Next question.

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?

    Sorry, my memory really doesn't extend that far back.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

    I make my own choices, why let anyone else decide when you know best?

    In closing, I have only one word to say about these "questions:"

    Rex Resident Furry

    1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
    Too young to use the internet.
    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?
    You can never try anything without the risk of failure. If you can't take that then get off the internet.
    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
    Because if you got your way all the time it wouldn't be life.
    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
    I rather enjoy spinning tales, communication is my business.
    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
    Nothing. Changing something will always make something else worse.
    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
    Being an author.
    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
    Sacrifices must be made for the greater good, as it were.
    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
    Let's go back in time to when the average life span was 40 years and find out.
    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
    Probably more then most, actually. Being the puppeteer gives you that right.
    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
    Perfectionism is a fun little thing, isn't it?
    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
    Tell them to shut it, obviously.
    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
    Newborns don't understand language. Giving them advice is pointless.
    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?
    Yes.
    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
    Insanity is a legal term. Creativity has no connection.
    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
    Weave stories.
    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
    Because I have a very warped mind.
    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
    Nothing, actually. I'm fairly satisfied with my ability to do things.
    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
    Nope.
    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
    California. Sick and tired of this damn cold weather.
    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
    No, I have a thing called patience.

    I am the sum of my experiences.
    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
    I have traits I'd like in a friend, as well as traits I wouldn't. I'm not flat enough to say all of none.
    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
    The latter, as you won't necessary disconnect from a friend that moves away.
    25.What are you most grateful for?
    My abilities.
    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
    I'd rather lose then not be able to create.
    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
    Obviously.
    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?
    Yes.
    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
    Everything matters. As stated above, I am the sum of my experiences.
    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
    I don't remember my childhood. I lost those memories last time I defragmented my brain to make space for more important information.
    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
    Last time I was manic, say... Four months ago?
    32.If not now, then when?
    When ever I feel like.
    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
    Situational questions aren't very good rhetorical questions.
    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
    No, that's stupid. A conversation requires verbal contact. Unless you're telepathic at least.
    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
    Because Love is a jealous, hateful thing.
    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
    No. The world isn't black and white.
    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
    Fuck no, $1,000,000.00 is nothing.
    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
    I'd rather do more that I enjoy.
    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
    No.
    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
    Real deep question, mang. This is basically every day, being me means taking risks.
    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
    Fuck that, too much traveling.
    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
    Kill myself faster to prove I'm shallow? Thanks, but I'll pass.
    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
    There is none. Like it or not, you're living when you're alive.
    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
    There is never a wrong time for Logistics. Unless an All Devouring Black Hole Loan Shark is barrel rolling down the hall in your general direction.
    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
    Because there are better ways to learn.
    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
    People judge me?
    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
    That's one of the noises that you never really notice.
    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
    Love is jealousy, so no.
    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
    No, I'll likely remove this from memory so I can remember more important things.
    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
    As a puppeteer, it is my job to make my own decisions. And maybe some of yours as well.
     
  13. 1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
    21

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?
    Never trying. At least if you fail, you can get a good story out of it and some life experience...I should be willing to try more thing

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
    Try as we might, it impossible to do what we want to do all the time. Honestly to get where we want to go we have to do stuff we don’t want to or don’t like...like how I had to do this entire post when I only want to answer one question on it.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
    Probably, I talk about doing a lot of stuff and then lose the nerve to do it. Trust me, it’s for the best.

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
    I’d want to reduce the cynicism by about three-quarters. Far too many killjoys in the world today.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
    Working in some historical archives or a library somewhere. It combines several of my favorite things in one occupation~

    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
    Tough question...a little bit of both honestly.

    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
    I’d be married with kids by now probably. I’d also be quicker to make decisions.

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
    The first of several of my religious based question. I got Baptized as a Christian back in 2007 which altered the course of my entire life. I can honestly say that the decision was the single most important one in my life because I’d be a far different person (and a far less pleasant person).

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
    Ahaha, I definitely have to go with doing the right things :D

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
    Hm, interesting...I would certainly call them out. If I have respect and admire them, hopefully they can take it lol

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
    Err, I’m gonna assume you mean write it down on a notecard to give them when they’re older. In which case I’d say to don’t sweat the small stuff. Oh, and don’t let that dramatic girl in second grade take your favorite pen...oh wait that’s two pieces of advice. Moving onward!

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?
    Of course I would. Sometimes doing the right thing involves breaking the law sometimes. Actually it depends on what I’m saving them from to. If it’s my uncle and it involves money, I’m not saving him~

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
    I...honestly can’t say I have. I disagree with anyone who says insanity is what drives creativity. Sometimes it does, sometimes it destroys it. It really depends on your definition of insanity and mine is very subjective.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
    I...have no idea.

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
    Again I don’t know. It would make things a lot easier if they did though. Errr, just kidding ^^;

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
    I want to go to China one day. Lack of money is holding me back lol I’m determined to make that dream come true though.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
    My paranoia

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
    Washington State because I need to get out of my bubble just a little bit and see the rest of my country.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
    No and no. Seriously, you only look stupid trying to press an elevator button more than once.

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
    Joyful simpleton~ I worry too much as it is.

    22.Why are you, you?
    I’m the way I am because of genes and what people have said to me. I’m still dismantling all the stuff that caused me to doubt myself so much.

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
    I don’t think I have yet, but I’m working on it.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
    Depends really. I’ve had both happen. I’d say the second one because it’s kind of depressing to lose touch with a nearby friend. Good friends are hard to come by so it’s hurtful to lose them,

    25.What are you most grateful for?
    My relationship with God. I...can’t even explain who I’d be without it.

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
    Let’s be clear that I never want either to happen. For the sake of this question, I’d rather lose all my old memories because the fact that I can always make better memories gives me so much hope.

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
    Um yeah...Say I just ASK someone a question and they tell me a truthful answer. I haven’t challenged anything and I got a truth. (honestly why does the ‘truth’ have to be this philosophical thing all the time?)

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?
    I haven’t died and gone to hell, so no.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now? Actually I do and yes it does matter unfortunately. Iirc, it was five years ago. It turns out I annoyed my friends and instead of them manning up and telling me, they went through another friend. I never trusted any of them again and it does affect my relationships now.

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
    My brain failed and I cannot recall childhood memories for the moment.

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
    I feel passionate and alive now honestly. I take my good and bad days in stride because those are what means to truly live. Not gonna lie though, I do have my days of feeling down...like today.

    32.If not now, then when?
    When it’s time I guess

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
    Money most likely.

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
    No, usually if I sit with someone and say nothing, it’s usually not good.
    .
    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
    Ahaha, finally, the question I want to answer. Religion isn’t the issue here; its people’s ignorance and sometimes fear. No amount of wishing religion didn’t exist will ever improve the world. Let’s fight the real enemy.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
    Yep

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
    Nope, a million dollars only gets you so far. Ask me that question if I won a billion dollars or something.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
    More work that I actually enjoy. I don’t have much to do at Old Navy and sometimes it’s still too much because I don’t like it.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
    No...(what kind of questions are these?)

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
    Do I even want to try to answer this question? No, no I don’t.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
    What a horrible, horrible, depressing situation—and a lose-lose one at that. I’d put some names in a hat and choose, honestly.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
    Pfft, and give up on my dream of living to 111? Besides, I’m pretty awesome the way I am imo.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
    Being alive: Just surviving. Truly living: Enjoying your life and actually having joy that no one can take.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right? After you’ve calculated the risk and the rewards, duh. Now it’s time to throw off your fears and go for it.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
    Because making a mistake sucks and it does not feel good usually and it’s sometimes painful. We humans try our best to avoid pain (disregarding masochists or something), but we still need those mistakes.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
    I’d be more open with my feelings, but there’s a part of me that’s always afraid of saying the wrong thing.

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
    Last night.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
    I truly love God, but I need to do a better job with my recent actions showing it though. Thanks for the heads up! (Maybe doing these questions was therapeutic after all)

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
    Seeing as sometimes I can forget what I did ten minutes ago, I don’t think I will remember. However I will remember what I did December 26th because a) it’s my dad’s birthday b) I’ve been dating my boyfriend ten months on that day.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? I’m making all of them myself. Not gonna lie, that’s a scary thought sometimes.
     
  14. Mr.RMA

    Mr.RMA Magearna before it was cool

    1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
    Considering, my overall obnoxiousness and immaturity, I'd go with something around 12 or 13

    2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?
    Depends on what the cost of failure would be. Generally though, if there isn't too much to risk, (And by too much, I mean, like your life or something) I'd say never trying.

    3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
    Perhaps morality, or the lack of ability to do such things, or maybe we're all just really stupid. I know a lot of people who would agree with me on the last one.

    4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
    No question, yes.

    5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
    Umm...hatred? Possibly? World peace would be a nice thing, as impossible as it seems to be.

    6.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
    Doing absolutely, and positively, NOTHING for as long as I please, being the lazy-ass that I am. Afterwards, with the fortune I'd receive from that, I'd go off doing anything my mind is set on doing on that particular day. (Doing nothing will most likely still be a part of my daily routine though)

    7.Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
    Sadly enough, I've been settling for what I've been doing for a while now. I'd like to change that, but for now, that's just how it's been.

    8.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
    Considering what I do health-wise, I'm probably not gonna have to worry about living beyond 40 anyways |D Seriously though, I'd probably start planning out what to do with my life a bit more. I'd definitely try to improve my social life, seeing how I won't have all that much time to find anyone who actually finds me halfway decent.

    9.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
    I'd say I've had around a 50% control of the course of my life, with the other half coming from the lack of where I live, what I look like, and who my family is. I'd say religion as well, but I believe I could change my faith truly at any time, I just choose to remain with it.

    10.Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
    Doing the right things. Don't get me wrong, I hate when I don't do things right, but my morals come first. It may not seem right to some at times, but if it appears to be the right thing in my mind, then I'm gonna do it.

    11.You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
    I'd probably tell them to lay off the criticism, politely at first, but if they persist, I'm going to make sure that they cut it out, and cut it out immediately.

    12.If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
    Uh...I think I know where this question is going, but still, mind if I wait until I'm sure they understand human speech?

    13.Would you break the law to save a loved one?
    I'm probably gonna sound like a law-abiding bastard on this one, but, honestly, it depends on what they have done, how much proof is evident that they did it, and/or what the consequences are for them and to a lesser extent, myself if I get caught. If their life is on the line, I'll probably be more inclined to save them, but only if I truly believe that what they've done, or not done, is truly something I believe doesn't call for their pending punishment. Like I said, law-abiding bastard.

    14.Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
    Many times. You have to really look at some things with open eyes in order to judge them as one or the other.

    15.What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
    Well, I talk to myself a lot...sometimes sing spontaneously as well...is that different?

    16.How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
    A little thing called personal preference.

    17.What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
    Go diving somewhere up the northern Atlantic. Money, money, money.

    18.Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
    Probably, but I think I don't know what it is yet.

    19.If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
    England. No need to learn a new language, the accents are pretty great, and I like me some fish and chips.

    20.Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
    No, and, well, no, though I sometimes press the door-shut button a lot in hopes that it closes faster. Sometimes I prefer those small moments of privacy.

    21.Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
    I'm already the latter, so perhaps it'd be interesting to be a worried genius. After all, it's usually easier to make a name for yourself that way.

    22.Why are you, you?
    To avoid any anger arising from a religious answer, I'll say, genetics, and how I was raised.

    23.Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
    I can't tell for certain. At times I feel like I'd be an okay friend, and at other times, I feel like an absolute idiot who I'd never want as a friend. All depends on the day.

    24.Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
    In this day and age, it's usually pretty simple to stay in touch with someone who moves away. Patching up relationships on the other hand, not so much. I'd definitely consider that worse.

    25.What are you most grateful for?
    Family, no question about it.

    26.Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
    Tough one, but I'd go with never being able to make new ones, simply because there's too much that's happened to me already, even at my young age for me to want to forget it all.

    27.Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
    Perhaps, if you're beyond sure of it already.

    28.Has your greatest fear ever come true?
    No, and though I know it may happen someday, I hope it never does.

    29.Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
    Hmm...well, that would be when I was in 6th grade...most of my issues that I remember are only times where I got mildly upset, so, no, and of course, no.

    30.What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
    Ugh, this is a tough one for me, and it usually changes every now and then, but one memory I'm very fond of is the time where I went fly fishing with my father in Wyoming. It was a pretty simple thing, but then again, like many memories, that's what I feel makes it particularly happy for me.

    31.At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
    I'd say the most recent time I've been on the stage. Gotta love the Theatre.

    32.If not now, then when?
    4:30 PM on a Saturday. (What's that? I'm a smartass? Why yes, I believe you're right!)

    33.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
    The real question I believe, is, what do I have to gain from achieving it?

    34.Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
    No, usually I feel the exact opposite.

    35.Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
    It's just what we, as humans, do. We fight upon disagreements. Religion just happens to be a major disagreement, and many of us completely forget what those religions stand for, and do very stupid things because of it.

    36.Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
    No. I'm gonna be somewhat blunt here when I say, there's absolutely no way to separate what is good and evil into two simple categories. That's just not possible with the vast amount of differing opinions of people.

    37.If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
    Uh...I'm in school, so I guess I'd leave that up to my parents, though I'd think it's best they keep their jobs. That money can disappear quickly if it's not handled responsibly, and it's not guaranteed to be there forever. A million isn't an infinite quantity.

    38.Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
    More work I actually enjoy doing. Considering how more jobs reward you more based on how much work you do, I'd like to enjoy working to get my next pay raise.

    39.Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
    You'd better believe it.

    40.When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
    Hard to tell. I'm not very aware of the beliefs of the majority of my friends, or other people I encounter often. I'd like to believe though, that someone out there is always there with the same idea.

    41.If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
    Well, considering how money is not object in this tragic event, I'd take it upon myself to visit every one I can find before the day is up, though family and close friends would definitely come first.

    42.Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
    Tempting, but, life is more important to me, and if I'm going to become famous, I'm going to have to work for it. Attractiveness isn't gonna happen, so I've already accepted that as well.

    43.What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
    ...poptarts? Nostalgia Critic reference aside, I think the difference is if you truly enjoy living or not. If you do, then that's truly living.

    44.When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
    Vague answer dead ahead: Just when the time comes.

    45.If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
    Fear of consequence. I don't think anyone would want to show that they're flawed, and more specifically, get any kind of punishment or retribution because of it.

    46.What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
    I'd be a little less afraid to speak my mind more often. Yay for another vague answer!

    47.When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
    Just now. Thanks for that.

    48.What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
    I'm just gonna pick one specific thing, 'cause I love a number of things, and that'd be the any New England sports team. I choose this, because almost every day I openly express my love for the Patriots, Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox, etc.

    49.In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
    Probably not, because I don't remember the ones from 5 years ago. Perhaps Christmas may still linger in my memory, but that'd be just about it.

    50.Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
    I always make my own decisions, because even when I let someone make the decision for me, I've decided to let that person make the decision in the first place.

    Seems I mention being human once or twice here, which kinda contradicts my entire robot persona, but...then again, who gives a crap about that? I was trying to sound semi-serious here anyways.
