    1. I would get rid of all weapons, oil and majority of penises (to limit the breeding of human kind)
    2. Bearman. I would inflict unbearable consequences.
    3. I know someone like that. I don't talk to her.
    4. I would play with hand puppets in front of a mirror.
    5. Nothing, I think it would annoy him/her the most.

    Great questions this time, sorry for the answers that suck.

    1. If you became ruler of the world, what three things would you do first?
    -Find a good advisor, and not a really shady one that would kill me like in the movies.
    -Begin the building of my castle/statue/shrine/whatever.
    -Outlaw Guitar Hero.
    2. If you were a superhero, what would be your name and what powers would you have?
    The Blue Ribbon. I'd have the ability to drink a ton of PBR, and make Megadeth albums blast your ears wherever you are, and therefore all the chicks at the party would magically disappear. :lol:
    3. You can ask one question to someone who knows EVERYTHING. What do you ask?
    Is there any way to hack the online ordering on the Pizza Hut website so I can get free pizza?
    4. If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?
    Sneak into "employees only" rooms at important places, see if people talk about me when I'm not around, "haunt" people, and... ... yeah, probably what Zach said.
    5. If you saw a mythical/religious deity walking down the street, what would you do?
    I'd ask them to sign up for the UM forums and end the "Satanic?" thread on the SX forum.

    -Call my mom
    -Pace around nervously
    -Start writing my acceptance speech

    2. If you were a superhero, what would be your name and what powers would you have?
    Miss Manners. I would save the world from ill-mannered people by being more formal than necessary.

    What is my purpose in life?

    4. If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?

    Take photos with my phone IF I HAD ONE ( :mad: ), then go up to it and try to say something if it were a nice deity. Otherwise I'd keep my distance.

    This is a little early, but I have to get up at the asscrack of dawn to head east to see the band over the weekend & won't have time to post this tomorrow. So here goes..

    1. If you had the ability to legally change your name, would you? To what?
    2. What do you with with change that you receive from banks/purchases/find on the ground?
    3. Which do you use most, cash, check, atm/debit card, or credit card?
    4. Would you rather live a safe, stable, moderately interesting life or one where every day was dangerous, volatile, and different?
    5. What do you think you'll be remembered for when you die and, if you could, would you change it to something else?

    3. Cash
    4. Stable but reasonably interesting
    5. Nothing yet, haven't been around long enough...

    1. I wouldn't change it. I'm sort of used to this one.
    2. I buy coffee @ university.
    3. Mostly Visa Electron, which is a debit card.
    4. I'm a hermit, I don't care about danger & excitement.
    5. That's a tough one. I have to think about it before I can answer.

    1. If you had the ability to legally change your name, would you? To what?
    Barry McCokiner (say it aloud... it's funny to me)

    No seriously, I do have the ability to change my name. No, i wouldn't. Wasn't this a question on The Men's Room a few weeks ago?

    2. What do you with with change that you receive from banks/purchases/find on the ground?
    It all goes in a blank cd spool lid (turned upside-down of course, so it now resembles a bowl or some such thing) and once a bunch accumulates, it's basically beer money.

    3. Which do you use most, cash, check, atm/debit card, or credit card?
    Lately it's been cash because my account is overdrawn, but normally it's debit card.

    4. Would you rather live a safe, stable, moderately interesting life or one where every day was dangerous, volatile, and different?
    depends on how long i'd live with the second. I prefer to have a safe, stable life with a few days interspersed with dangerous volatile stuff.

    5. What do you think you'll be remembered for when you die and, if you could, would you change it to something else?
    I dunno. Haven't done anything great with my life so most people won't remember me.

    1. Possibly. Don't know to what, though.
    2. Use the quarters for laundry, save the rest for other purchases. I'm one of those annoying people that have to have exact change.
    3. Cash
    4. Safe, stable, and moderately interesting. Throw in several concerts and I'm happy.
    5. Probably the loyal, down-to-earth guy. But who knows, things change.

    1. If you had the ability to legally change your name, would you? To what?
    I don't know. But yeah, I would. I have a theory about that.

    2. What do you with with change that you receive from banks/purchases/find on the ground?
    Same as Zach. :lol:.

    3. Which do you use most, cash, check, atm/debit card, or credit card?
    Credit card. I never write checks. I never get late on card payments either though.

    4. Would you rather live a safe, stable, moderately interesting life or one where every day was dangerous, volatile, and different?
    #2.

    5. What do you think you'll be remembered for when you die and, if you could, would you change it to something else?
    I wouldn't change it because it is going to be awesome.

    1) Phil Latio, Harry Pairatestes, seriously, probably wouldn't change it, unless I could legally change it to "Fuck Off" :Smokedev:

    2) Use it as currency, it all gets spent just the same....

    3) Mostly cash, all gas goes on the debit card. Rarely use credit cards unless i'm travelling.

    4) A little of both would be nice..... :Spin:

    5) Probably be remembered for my slightly off center & politically incorrect sense of humor. Doubt I'll be remembered for much else...

    1) Max Powers
    2) Collects in various piles on my desk, dresser and bookshelf.
    3) Debit exclusively.
    4) Safe, stable and moderately interesting life until I accomplish everything I want to do, then when I'm really old, the latter.
    5) Honestly, I live a very introverted life and not many people know me that well. I would be remembered as the person who played guitar and listened to strange music.:lol: I would later in life hope to make at least one good contribution to science and music. So...uhhh maybe something around those lines.

    1. If you had the ability to legally change your name, would you? To what?
    Never.

    2. What do you with with change that you receive from banks/purchases/find on the ground?
    Spend it on various items

    3. Which do you use most, cash, check, atm/debit card, or credit card?
    Cash/debit

    4. Would you rather live a safe, stable, moderately interesting life or one where every day was dangerous, volatile, and different?
    Safe environment. I'm such a wuss.

    5. What do you think you'll be remembered for when you die and, if you could, would you change it to something else?
    It's too early to tell what I'll be remembered for, hopefully it's something good. In that case I wouldn't want to change it.

    Yes

    Living in NYC makes for pretty boring weather most of the time, but when I'm at sea the weather is more intense, if that makes me any more badass.
