Do you hold some conspiracy theory? Tell us!

Conspiracy theories usually attribute to malice that which is best attributed to stupidity, so no.

Would you rather only be able to whisper or only be able to shout?

Whisper. Microphones and amplifiers can fix that if necessary.

Which book has made you laugh aloud?

Many but special mention to The Rats, the Bats, and the Ugly for the armour plated turbo charged chromed golf cart "driven" by an uplifted Rat who thinks he's a lot more mechanically talented than he actually is...

Which series would you recommend watching now?

Of the few I'm watching this season? Sound! Euphonium S2 is probably the best, followed by Days. Kiss Him, Not Me is fairly amusing if you can accept the premise (which sometimes I do have problems with).

It's World Vegan Day! Do you think it is healthy to be a vegan/vegetarian?

Quite possibly since, apart from anything else, it requires PAYING ATTENTION to what you're eating.
And that's actually the first step to a healthy nutrition plan.

How would you introduce yourself on dating app?

Politely, after reading her profile, and referencing common interests.
Dating apps have never really interested me, but after hearing so much about the toxicity that goes on there I'm tempted to run an experiment on say Ok Cupid.
Just be decent, starting with the introduction approach above, generally avoiding being crude, and moving on to gracefully taking no for an answer
Just to see what sort of reactions that would get.

What is the last thing you searched online?

I was curious as to whether the Daddy Bear stuff that Chihaya is a fan of in #Chihayafuru is an in-universe franchise or existed in its own right. Casual googling indicates the former but I didn't really spend a lot of time on it.

What's the best way to apologize?

Truly own your mistake and not quibble about the impact or assign blame to the victim by using a construct like "I'm sorry if you were offended."
No. The right way to do it is "I was wrong and I'm sorry I hurt/offended you." In that form there's nothing on the victim, you are owning your mistake.
That's the critical point but John @scalzi has a much better guide here: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2013/04/15/apologies-what-when-and-how/

When was the last time you spent an entire day without your phone? What did you do?

I don't understand the question. 😜

Is there something you found out about yourself while using ASKfm?

Not really. I snark a lot, especially at the poorly worded questions, but I knew that already.

Where the happiness can be found?

Go home Ask.Fm. You're either drunk or need to spend some time with a grammar teacher.
