Ask @Nullzone42:

I've got some pretty valuable MtG cards(4th Edition mostly), with the most valuable probably being some dual lands(Volcanic Island, Tropical Island, Badlands). Would you suggest I sell them to a shop or try to sell on Ebay?

Let me start by saying I have never tried to sell cards on the open market, so I'm only going off observed wisdom.
Now, more to the particulars...it depends on what you want out of them and how much effort you want to put in. As a general rule, it is my understanding that selling to a card shop will only net you about 50% of the market value of the card, while selling on ebay tends to start off at 55% and often goes up from there. Obviously the latter is more work, but may be worth it if you just want to liquidate these things.
There are a lot of factors that can affect the market value of your cards though (some positively), so regardless of what you opt to do I would do plenty of research first. There's a lot of information at the mtgfinance subreddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/mtgfinance), may prove useful. And you can always just ask them for advice too :)

what do you do for fun??>.... (: (;

Answer these questions, apparently. :P
For real though, games! Board games with friends, video games by myself, helping others enjoy these things via convention volunteering/magic judging... all of it tends to revolve around games. GAMES ERRYDAY.
If not that, then I enjoy listening to music, reading (preferring comics or novels), or even dancing.

What is your favorite fandom that would work well if it was reimplemented into a board game?

Just in terms of licensed properties, Sherlock would be way easy to make into a Scotland Yard/Letters From Whitechapel variant, I think.
For a more fandom-theme-as-mechanics sort of game...I'm not sure. Night Vale could be an adventure game of some sort, though the goal is not particularly clear. It'll never happen, but I think it would be cool to see the Magic universe expanded beyond their card game and novels. Something like that might work.
Hell, I'd take Pacific Rim rockem sockem robots.

If you had limitless resources, what would be your ideal Halloween costume? --@celeloriel

Master Chief, Iron Man, maybe one of the Daft Punk robots...hard to say. I like Deadpool and admire Deadpool cosplayers but don't think I could do him justice, personality wise. Others...not sure. My fandoms are all deep enough that I could find a character I wouldn't mind costuming as in every one of them.

what do you look for in a girl>?

This is kind of hard to answer; relationships are honestly new to me so I guess I just haven't figured out entirely what I'm looking for, but these all seem like they're fairly honest answers if I stop and look inward.
If I had to think about it in broad terms, the things that I find attractive include a strong sense of self, a good sense of humor, and having something that you love and want to share with others. I've already mentioned physical features that I find attractive - go back through my old answers for that stuff. Having similar interests/philosophies is obviously a big plus, though I wouldn't expect to agree on everything with a partner (the degrees to which I'm willing to concede a difference of opinion varies by topic), and in fact would almost prefer NOT to be completely alike - it seems to me that the broadening of horizons from different viewpoints is part of what makes a relationship worth having in the first place.

Are you spiritual and/or religious?

Yes and no. I believe in the existence of a higher power. I was baptized as a teenager. I reject most of the institution of religion however as I have found it frequently contradicts itself and acts out of self-interest before the interest of others. I don't believe it's my job to convict anyone else of my beliefs, either - people may (no, MUST) come to their own conclusions. I don't pray, I don't read a Bible or anything...I'm pretty secular overall, I just still hold the core belief that there is something greater in the universe than ourselves.

what is love?

(baby don't hurt me...don't hurt me...no more)
No really though this is super nebulous and I feel like any answer I give would be inadequate, if you want to know something more specific try asking again maybe?
I may just not be in the right mindset for this particular Q, I dunno. Feel free to ask back though and I'll try to answer better with some clarification.

What is your favorite type of sushi?

I haven't tried much sushi. I've done california rolls and eel rolls, neither was particularly good (it wasn't horrible, but I didn't care for it). And I've had ahi tuna once in my life sort of by mistake and really didn't like that, so the combination of these details makes me think I wouldn't really like traditional sushi very much. Which is sad, because it's a very elegant looking food and I like experiencing culturally representative foods.

What were your thoughts about that guy who won the Houston PTQ with six Elvish Archdruids? Many think the punishment was too light and his store about not noticing dubious

I only vaguely remembered this happening so I went and read up on it.
Short answer: His punishment was, by policy, exactly what it should be.
Long answer is too long for ask.fm, so I posted it on tumblr: http://nullzone.tumblr.com/post/62923396139/from-the-desk-of-a-magic-judge

How often do you go to parties?

Rarely. Chronic anxiety makes it difficult to be around lots of people I don't know plus a lot of external stimulation (noise etc). Without something to focus on I get overwhelmed quickly, so I tend to do best when there's a game to play, or someone there I know I can just converse with and tune out a lot of the extra stuff.
Sorry I'm boring :<
