Burgers with pickles or onions or both?

All the pickles and all the onions.

How do you stay strong for others at times when you can't even be strong for yourself?

I'm not too likely to be much help to anyone, much less myself in times of weakness. Should I be, I endeavor to pay it forward, so to speak, in the good faith that others would so the same for me.

What is your favorite type of exercise? Witty Rabbit

The proverbial long walk in the park.

Would you be happy without money?

Only if everything were free.

Does your name have a meaning? What is it?

Your doom.

How many kicks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Cacodemon?


What do your doodles look like?

If you run away from your problems, does it count as exercise?

Yes, because I've been doing it all week and now I need a nap.

What was the last thing that made you laugh? Witty Rabbit

My cat.

What is the best way to say goodbye?

Saying, "goodbye."

15 years of hard labor... could you handle it?

All work and no play makes Tim a very dull boy.

What was the best meal you’ve ever eaten?

The first time orange chicken touched my lips I realized what Cloud 9 felt like.

What's your morning routine?

Get out of bed. Check email. Pee. Stumble back into bed pretending like I have five more minutes when I have roughly four. Stumble back out of bed, get dressed, remember if I peed. Have breakfast or some edible equivalent. Pack my backpack and head out the door to the bus. I remember it's the weekend and walk back to bed.

What makes you lose your temper?

Humanity, more often than not.

How was it?

Tantalizing. *licks pizza sauce off fingers*

Does emotion drive thought or does thought drive emotion? MonkeyMagicEden

As any other breed of animal, humans behave instinctually, first and foremost. I would imagine that such emotions as fear, anger, hunger, lust, jealously, and so forth determine our frame of mind before we can form higher thoughts from them.

Do you think emotional dependency in romantic relationships is inevitable? Why? Diāna

I've long understood love to be putting someone else's happiness before your own. I would think that would indeed suggest a certain dependency by definition, but certainly a pleasurable one should the person no the receiving end be worth it.

How do you deal with the lame haters?

I don't. They have to deal with me.

How do you personally define success? What does a successful person look like to you? Witty Rabbit

Living a life to its fullest. Anyone who does would certainly look like someone who would never willingly give it up.

Are you "with" or "against" vaccines? Why? Diāna

I'm "with" the immunizing the public from contagious disease and "against" the opposite of that.

What kinds of storylines would you like to see more of on television or in the movies? Have you found shows that have those storylines? If so, which ones are they? Witty Rabbit

Time-travel (or time-loop) is a treasure I don't believe television or cinema has ever mastered terribly well since Terminator 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, despite all of its strengths, was hardly a believable period piece. Looper was a breath of fresh air though and one of the reasons Rian Johnson directing a Star Wars film.

What TV show has gone off the air that you wish would come back?

I can think of few shows that either gracefully took their bow or embarrassed themselves to the point of cancellation that I would want to see return. Let the past be the past is something I would usually say for most franchises with few exceptions.

I would be more than happy to see Dexter redeem itself if such a thing were possible and with every year that goes by, Firefly only seems farther away from a possibility. A new Star Trek show is probably the show I'm most excited for until I see or hear something I don't like about it. Stargate Atlantis would at the top of my list –that show was robbed before its time had come.

If the city you live in was being evacuated due to some kind of natural disaster or other catastrophic event, where would you go? Have you ever thought of this before now?

I have no idea and the thought of my apparent unpreparedness is just slightly disturbing, to say the least. Depending on the disaster, my only forethought would be to safer, higher ground.

What types of sites did you spend a lot of time on when you first started using the Internet? Witty Rabbit

Geek sites, primarily. Video game news, comic book superhero sites and whatever form YouTube existed as at the time. My internet diet hasn't changed much in that time beyond perusing many more local and world news sites and podcasts as a journalism major.

Can you dab?

I know not this "dab" that you speak of. It is the Devil's work.
