Which movie do you think is overrated?
Good Will Hunting, but by no means because of Robin Williams. The man gives an Oscar award-winning performance that's otherwise unworthy of being in such a mediocre film.
Why are gamers so selfish?
I think there are gamers who happen to be selfish and some gamers who happen to be very unselfish. What plastic you're holding doesn't correlate with much beyond sore thumbs after long periods of time in my experience.
Which meal was so good that you can't forget it?
The time my stomach endured three alarm chili, a falafel, and a cheese danish for dessert all in one sitting. I'm glad I lived to tell you this.

What was the last song you sang out loud to?
"O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!"
Don't ask.

What was your first paid job?
Hmm, probably my very first freelance article for GamesRadar.
It's Saturday! What are you doing today?
Not yet for me as a Pacific Northwest US guy! But when it is, large amounts of literature, Netflix, and caffeine shall be consumed!

What future invention are you impatiently waiting for?
Teleportation. Public transit's a beast.
How old were you when you first remember tasting peanut butter?  Toronto Lydia
I was but a wee lad of no more than five years of age. 'Twas a hot summer's day when a solitary peanut butter cup graced my taste buds; that sweet, sweet marriage of nutty, sugary goodness. I bow to no nut, but if there ever was one I was impossibly fond of, then I fear the peanut would be one.

How do you stay fit?
Reading and writing burns more calories than you'd think.

The punchline at the end of the yoke.

Many of the questions on this site are heavily focused on a small number of topics: sex, religion (or the lack thereof), social justice, more sex questions, etc. What other topics would you be interested in talking about on here?  Toronto Lydia
The unadulterated joy brought by peanut butter to humanity.

Do you think there's value in always deliberately taking time to think about someone else's comments before responding to them? Or is it dishonest to not quickly provide your gut reaction in discussion?  Martin J. Clemens
It depends on what they ask of me. I like to think a conversation is always an exercise in your eyes and your ears –if not simply all of your attention, as I would hope the deaf could forgive the metaphor. If simply speculative and in short supply of empirical evidence to be drawn from, I'd surmise that a gut reaction would suffice for want of anything more impersonal.
Value is a nigh impossible to separate from fact, so I rarely concern myself with "objectivity" so much as educated guesses in practice. If I should ever be asked to go with my gut on a topic, I believe it to be a request for my most honest answer. Speed is everything for revealing our most telling opinions on something or ourselves. Time, it seems, is the luxury by which we so often indulge in self-conceit and creating "little white lies" is most tempting. I'd like to think that only the best Freudian slips are the quickest, if not the hardest to let slip away from the tongue.
To what extent do you pay attention to fashion trends? Do you think of yourself as a fashionable person?  Toronto Lydia
Fashion is in the eye of the beholder and should be the pleasure of the wearer. I am not one to sacrifice comfort for relevance, nor a budget for a fad. Roughly 99% of my wardrobe has consisted of the same kind of blue jeans and T-shirts I've worn since I was a kid (now different sizes, of course).
I have too little investment in the fashion industry as a consumer to care what scraps of cloth I throw onto myself, save for the fact that it be clean, comfortable, and generally unobjectionable in good company. And I tend to frown on wearing what probably cost another person their well-being to make for me at an outrageously unjust cost half-a-world away.

Would you rather live in the mountains or on the beach?
Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day,
To find our long-forgotten gold
