People you may like

What's the weirdest deja-vu experience you've encountered?

All deja-vu experiences are weird, so I can't pick just one.

How much money do you need to feel rich?

About half my current annual salary in my bank account, after all debt and bills have been paid.

If you had to choose, would you go to the Light or the Dark side?

Light side, I think, although the dark side is tempting...

Should schools offer cash bonuses for good test scores?

No. That would only encourage cheating, and it would discriminate schools where there are students with learning difficulties, mental conditions, etc.

What would you ask the President?

Hey Barack! You seem like a nice guy in general, but what's with all these drone strikes? Shouldn't you at least be more than 95% sure that you're getting the actual terrorist, and without collateral damage?

Do you believe in destiny? What's yours?

Not really, but who knows? If I have a destiny, I will find out eventually.

How often do you change your mobile phone?

On average, every 1.5-2 years, roughly. The last switch was after a little over 1 year, the switch before lasted between 2 and 3 years.

Do you trust people easily?

Yes, but not unconditionally. It really depends on what I intend to trust them with, but I generally trust people unless they've given me reason not to.

Have you ever seen that clown at Walmart that hides from gay people?

I've never even been to a Walmart store before, so I wouldn't know. Have you seen him?

What's cool nowadays?

Who knows? Those who _think_ they are cooler than anyone else are just being superficial. What counts, is what you personally like.

What is something you do every single day?

Wake up. And I plan to do that every single day for the rest of my life! :-)

Cake or pie?

Cake. ("Thank you for flying Church of England, cake or death?" "I asked for the vegetarian." "Ah, yes, the vegetarian, yes! There we go, Mr. Hitler. There we go... Like a bit of wine? Thank you very much... you Nazi shithead!")

What’s the one most important thing to get done today?

Get home? It's getting pretty late, and I'm still at the office....

Is it easier to forgive or forget?

It's easier (and better) to forgive, and never forget. If they pull that shit again, your trust will diminish for each time. There are, however, some occasions that do not deserve forgiveness, to the point where you just need to cut that someone out of your life. Revenge is usually not a good thing, though.

What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in life?

I don't think I've actually encountered my most important lesson yet. The best is yet to come, I believe.

How many times do you hit the snooze button before getting up?

I constantly lose count, but I think the most has been around 10 times. Yes, I'm that kind of guy...

Do you like Coke or Pepsi? Why?

Mostly Coke (Zero), but it really depends on my mood of the day. I'm not locked to one single brand, so both Coke Zero and Pepsi Max rank pretty much equally high on my scale.

What is the best movie you have ever seen?

RED [2010], with Bruce Willis, John Malcovich, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and a lot of other big names. Of the ones I've rated highly in the past, RED is the one that still holds up after several re-watchings.

If you were a farmer, what would you grow?

Whatever requires the least amount of effort to grow. If it's something that needs constant care, I won't be able to do it well.

What should there be in a perfect city?

Excellent and easy public transport, many sights to see, good opportunitites for basic shopping needs, good cultural offers in general (shows, concerts, etc).

What's your favorite drink?

Non-alcoholic? Coca-Cola Zero. Alcoholic? Kilkenny or Guinness (beer). Spirits? Maybe Jack Daniels (mainly because of the sweetness, compared to similar types).

What's your dream car?

Electric-powered, self-driven, autonomous. No specific brand comes to mind on this, but a mix between Google's research project and Tesla might sound tempting.

Which country do you most want to visit?

Besides re-visiting USA, I might want to visit Australia, just to have been there. Japan is also up there somewhere.

How often do you go to the movies?

On average, around once or twice every 2 months. That's at an actual movie theater, and not just movie watching in general.

What's the longest you've gone without sleep?

Maybe around 48 hours, but that was long ago, and by forcing myself (at a LAN party event when I was younger).

What is one thing you are sure of?

Nothing, come to think of it. I can't even say life, because what if even life as we know it isn't real? What if we're just beings living inside an advanced computer simulation, and we just don't know it yet? (Watch "The Matrix" films, and "The Thirteenth Floor", and you might see what I mean.)

You're stuck on an island. How would you spend your time?

Building shelter, gathering food, trying to find a way to communicate for help, in some way or another.

If you had three wishes, what would they be?

Financial wealth (to the point where I don't have to worry/think about it), healthy body (and at a weight/size I'd be comfortable with), the ability to travel or observe through time (to be able to see the past or the future). That last one might be difficult, though. ;-)

Which foreign country do you dislike the most?

If I could pick from any country (even one I've never been to), I'd say North Korea. None of the countries I've visited so far have hit my "dislike" list, though.

If you were an activist what would want to protest against?

Breaches of basic human rights, as a general topic. If I have to pick something more specific, I would protest against punishments/judgements that do not fit the crime (and also where no actual crime has happened).
