If you had to be on one season of a reality TV show, which show would you choose?Witty Rabbit
The laziest part of me wants to say Big Brother and the adventurous part of me wants to say The Amazing Race just to travel more. I'm not sure what lies in between that. Maybe Survivor just to lie around on a beach all day in the middle of nowhere?
What would you name a newly discovered planet?
John Jacob Jingle Heimer Schmidt
Do you ever hold yourself responsible for the feelings of others?
I hold myself responsible for respecting their feelings, but I am not typically subject to changing what feelings they may already have.

As much as I'd love to visit the future birthplace of Mad Max, beat the heat and travel to Europe, I say.

By being productive. Getting something done that needed to be helps remind myself that I was of some use.

A good, long sip of a cool frappucino and a big Neil Gaiman book.

Should spending time abroad be made an integral part of every child's education?Lucas
Assuming that most families could afford it, absolutely. Exposing children to new places and people is the key to shaping more informed and well-rounded adults. Living should be much more of a foundation of an education than it is and not the office work that it's treated as. Most students in Europe aren't unfamiliar gap years between high school and college to work, save money, and travel abroad and they're usually better adjusted for it.
What can you think about for hours?
"How can I get to sleep?"
What was your greatest holiday adventure?
My family never went far for the holidays, at least as long as we celebrated any, but I can recall fighting my grandfather and my uncle in an epic lightsaber battle once.
How did you transition from being an evangelical Christian to a Messianic Jew to an Agnostic? Those are three very different belief systems!Witty Rabbit
My parents were mostly to thank for our initial religious transition. Thanks to a variety of poor experiences with my Sunday school and the bad taste that was left in my parents' mouths sitting in the pews, it wasn't hard for us to leave sometime when I became a teenager. I was too young at the time to really harbor any spiritual motivations of my own at the time. That my parents thought it best for us had to be enough.
Leaving the church meant leaving literally every friend I had at the time behind as well and as a homeschooler, I was left pretty much on my own. We studied the Torah and watched video tapes of Messianic Jewish rabbis from home, celebrating all of the Jewish festivals: Purim, Passover, Hannukah, Sekot, Yom Kippur, and so forth. Our interaction with the online community we were a part of dissolved rather unceremoniously as well, which left us with little interest in religion at all, though I had probably given up religion myself long before that.
My family had a stint as conspiracy theorists for a time, but I like to think the internet had made my parents both a lot more liberal and much more informed than otherwise. I considered agnostic a waypoint between belief systems and I'm probably more of an atheist than anything else. I think that's where I'll stay until further notice.

The spicy curry and Mexican food that gets me into trouble.
Tell about your favorite teacher!
Which worries you more – doing things right or doing the right things?
No good deed goes unpunished and for every person who does right there is wrong done to them. A job well done is a rare thing, but it is rarer for someone to do the right thing expecting nothing in return. Whether I always have the capacity to the latter is an uncertainty that sometimes worries me.
What are your religious beliefs? (Feel free to ignore if you are uncomfortable in answering.)
I was raised an evangelical Christian, a Messianic Jew, and an agnostic and I can honestly say that I've enjoyed the third of those the most.
