    I - What is your idea of perfect happiness?

    Ignorance? I'd hate to be perfectly happy, except for short periods now and then.

    II - What is your greatest fear?

    That religion shall destroy humanity.

    III - What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

    Laziness; incapability to finish all the things I start.

    IV - What is the trait you most deplore in others?

    Ignorance, religiousness.

    V - Which living person do you most admire?

    Richard Dawkins, I suppose. James Randi is a close second.

    VI - What is your greatest extravagance?


    Does my home theater with 37-inch plasmascreen count as an extravagance? I watch a lot of movies and want to see and hear them in high quality, so I don't think my equipment is extravagant at all, but I suppose some might think so.

    VII - What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

    If religious piety is considered a virtue, then that one for sure. I'd rather consider it a vice, though.

    When I think it benefits the people around me or the society as a whole more than speaking the truth.

    IX - What do you dislike about your appearance?

    I'm fine with my appearance, but occasionally, when I need to reach something on the top shelf, I'd like to be a bit taller.

    X - What living person do you most despise?

    The pope, and all the other religious leaders.

    XI - Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

    "No se", which is Finnish and means basically "oh, well". It creates some confusion with Spanish-speaking people, I've noticed.

    XII - What or who is the greatest love of your life?

    Dark Tranquillity. Duh. :Smug:

    XIII - When and where were you the happiest?

    When I saw DT live for the first time, I suppose.

    XIV - If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

    I'd like to be omnipotent.

    XV - What do you consider your greatest achievement?

    I hope my greatest achievement is still to come.

    XVI - If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what do you think it would be?

    A dead corpse.

    XVII - Where would you like to live?

    The moon. (I'm fine where I am now.)

    XVIII - What is your favorite occupation?

    Ice-cream taster. (See above.)

    XIX - What is your most treasured possession?

    My DT collection, I suppose.

    XX - What is your most marked characteristic?

    I'm rather easy to approach, even (and especially) by those who generally shun other people, I've been told. I'm also a militant atheist.

    XXI - What do you most value in your friends?

    Reliability.

    XXII - Who are your favorite writers?

    Esko Valtaoja, the aforementioned Dawkins, Tolkien, Sundin, Stanne.

    XXIII - Who is your favorite hero of fiction?

    Jesus. Too bad he doesn't exist.

    XXIV - Which historical figure do you most identify with?

    Lalli (as far as he can be considered historical - I don't care for the mythological part).

    XXV - What is it that you most dislike?

    Injustice, religion.

    XXVI - What is your greatest regret?

    That I've wasted too much time regretting things.

    XXVIII questions -

    I - What is your idea of perfect happiness?


    A good life, lived outside the social idea of a "comfort zone".

    II - What is your greatest fear?

    To spiral yet again in the horrible world of office work and procrastination.

    III - What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?


    I tend to judge others and condemn people who's behavior I disapprove.

    IV - What is the trait you most deplore in others?

    Dishonesty and also I have an aversion for those who submit entirely to social pressure.

    V - Which living person do you most admire?

    My friends. (sorry I can't be more specific, you wouldn't know their names anyway)

    VI - What is your greatest extravagance?

    Weird is normal, normal is weird. I carry a plush platypus just about everywhere I go, it's become my mascot.

    VII - What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

    Caution or prudence. It can be good as a basic but heck, life is for bruises and scars.

    VIII - On what occasion do you lie?

    As rarely as possible. I would rather keep my mouth shut than tell a lie. I have been reprimanded for my frankness.

    IX - What do you dislike about your appearance?

    haha. I only dislike that sometimes, like all humans, I care about it.

    X - What living person do you most despise?

    Anyone who believes their life is great because of their 2 SUVs in the garage, the home theater system and a collection of shamwows of every color. I also highly dislike hollywood and popular music promoters.

    XI - Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

    From Québec: 'sti which is a shortened version of hostie, a swear word. It serves a similar (not identical) purpose as "fuck". You say "fuckin' crazy", I say "'sti que c'est fou".

    XII - What or who is the greatest love of your life?

    Well I can’t really tell since I haven’t died yet. So far I’ve met 2 women that I know I will never forget. I also have a soft spot for skydiving.

    XIII - When and where were you the happiest?


    On stage, during my first improv match in 2006 and on July 1st 2009 I was 13,500 feet in the air and was falling down at 200km/h.

    XIV - If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

    I’d give myself a bit more self-confidence.

    XV - What do you consider your greatest achievement?

    Like Villain said, I’m pretty sure it’s still to come.

    XVI - If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what do you think it would be?

    A Koala. Cute and cuddly yet aggressive when needed.

    XVII - Where would you like to live?

    Just throw a dart on a world map. Specifically, I loved Ireland and Greece but I’m also curious about every other country I haven’t yet traveled to. I must admit that Dublin, economy not considered, seems like a swell place to live in.

    XVIII - What is your favorite occupation?


    Travelling and skydive.

    Can I say sex?

    XIX - What is your most treasured possession?

    Arms and legs. You can do a lot with those.

    XX - What is your most marked characteristic?

    Physically? Scar on my chin I guess. Psychologically it’s either my sense of humor or my frankness.

    XXI - What do you most value in your friends?

    Honesty towards themselves and others and open-mindedness

    XXV - What is it that you most dislike?

    Hypocrisy

    XXVI - What is your greatest regret?

    The 3 years I spent doing nothing.

    XXVII - How would you like to die?

    With as little regret as possible.

    XXVIII - What is your motto?

    Life is a rollercoaster or a tea party. You choose.
    I also enjoy this quote from the song White Knuckle Grip by Wovenhand:
    Come on boy
    Come up with somethin'
    Or go home go home with nothin'

    I - What is your idea of perfect happiness?

    Two options:

    a. Dying in my sleep tonight.

    b. Promise me today
    I'll have a Chevrolet
    with whitewalls on the side,
    One boy, one girl
    comfortable lies

    II - What is your greatest fear?

    Having now reassessed and redefined my priorities, not making it in terms of those.

    III - What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

    There's so many I really don't know what to choose. Inability to express myself adequately is pretty high on the list. Oh, and I look like a mildly ill alcoholic, this isn't impressive either.

    IV - What is the trait you most deplore in others?

    Nothing much really. I don't like stupidity, but I don't hang out with many stupid people, so really there's not a lot to deplore.

    V - Which living person do you most admire?

    Hmmm... picking one is hard. I am thoroughly impressed by, say, priests who spend their life building schools in Africa and don't kill themselves in the process.

    VI - What is your greatest extravagance?

    Again, nothing much really. I like punk rock.

    VII - What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

    Ha-ah! This is really asking for it, right? Next question.

    VIII - On what occasion do you lie?

    Many. To protect people I love, mainly.

    IX - What do you dislike about your appearance?

    Eczema, bags under my eyes, bad teeth, and some excess fat around the waist.

    X - What living person do you most despise?

    Everyone who thinks that spending 1000 dollars on a single night will make them happy - that's bloody stupid.

    XI - Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

    "A bit".

    XII - What or who is the greatest love of your life?

    Hang on. "What"? Does this mean I can mention, say, LOLcats? Anyway, I don't know the answer to this one. There's people I have loved, but most outside observers scream hallucination.

    XIII - When and where were you the happiest?

    I think I have two of those moments. One, when my parents allowed me to go see Bad Religion live some 100km from where I lived, in 1994. Two, on March 17th, 2009, slightly before midnight.

    XIV - If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

    One: spare me more of these days.

    XV - What do you consider your greatest achievement?

    Probably getting my current job. But also getting my friend Alessandro his current job, through coaching and moral support. That was pretty neat.

    XVI - If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what do you think it would be?

    Something fiery and useless, like Chinese fireworks.

    XVII - Where would you like to live?

    Maybe in America, but I'm too much of a chicken to do that.

    XVIII - What is your favorite occupation?

    Daydreaming.

    XIX - What is your most treasured possession?

    My computer.

    XX - What is your most marked characteristic?

    Awww smarts.

    XXI - What do you most value in your friends?

    Same.

    XXII - Who are your favorite writers?

    Bulgakov, Steinbeck, Shriver, Welsh.

    XXIII - Who is your favorite hero of fiction?

    Clarice Starling.

    XXIV - Which historical figure do you most identify with?

    Elizabeth the Ist (not the movie version).

    XXV - What is it that you most dislike?

    Pain.

    XXVI - What is your greatest regret?

    I don't really have many of those, I try and fail all the time, but at least I try.

    XXVII - How would you like to die?

    Painlessly, soon, without too much noise.

    XXVIII - What is your motto?

    Accusing the world
    But you're playing the game
    Scream till it hurts
    But it's always the same
    Wake up in a fog
    Can't remember my name
