Silly geese, waiting until after time was up to ask...
1. What are your three siblings like and how is your relationship with each of them?
2. Do you enjoy watching or playing football more?
3. How surprised and how dismayed were you by our Giants abysmal play this season and what do you think is needed to get us back to the Superbowl?
4. When was the last time you went to Giants game?
5. What was the best game you had in high school? (Define best however you want team victory, personal stats / interceptions etc.)
1. Eldest sister just married. Sweetest and most caring female in the world. Much respect for her, and the person I can confide in and trust the most. I still haven't gotten completely over her moving out.
Second eldest sister is a year older than me. Our relationship is strong love/hate, and as such, she has the closest relationship with me. One moment, she'll can be very kind and loving, and the next, she'll be picking a fight with me for the hell of it. She is the one who introduced me to the world of manga. She's also incredibly possessive, prying into all parts of my life. She loves putting me in uncomfortable situations, whether it being asking personal questions or getting very uncomfortably physical. As of recently, though, she now has a reason to, since my eldest sister moved in with my brother-in-law and my parents are rarely home due to work.
My younger brother is in high school. Smart fellow, and very easy-going. He makes for a great throwing partner and a Player 2, for tossing around the football and playing video games respectively. He's very fun to converse with. Lucky for him, my sister doesn't bother him at all.
2. Definitely watching football. While playing football was fun, it was very stressful, particularly since I had to play all sorts of coverage against highly skilled and taller receivers as the primary corner. The first weekend before the first two games were awful, as I was constantly worrying about making a fool of myself being beaten by receivers.
3. As distraught as I was, I wasn't surprised. Eli's offensive line is horrendous. They can't block at all, whether it be for the pass or the run. As such, I don't blame Eli too much, as he has proven to be one of the decade's elite. Also, Pierre-Paul has been a non-factor for the pass rush since forever, and that's incredibly disappointing. They need a stronger O-Line which would allow for Hillis to have breathing room to run, and also for Eli to make the throws to his talented receivers. Oh, and they need a pass rush defense.
4. The tale of two-halves against Tampa Bay a year ago.
5. Much of the weight was placed on my shoulders in games. If I played the shutdown corner well, we would win. And if not, we would lose. Badly. Favorite game happened in my junior year, held the receiver I was assigned to to two receptions for 30-something yards, and returned an interception to set up an offensive touchdown before the half.
I wasn't a great corner by any standard. A solid starter, yes. But I was inconsistent.
6. If you were given a full athletic scholarship to play football for any Division 1 university what school would you go choose to play for?
7. What was the last movie or book that made you cry?
8. What to you is the best restaurant in the tri-state area and what do you usually order when you eat there?
9. What do you think is the most controversial opinion that you have?
10. What is your favorite branch of natural science and why?
6. Wow, talk about a godsend. Either UMich or Georgia Tech.
7. A Walk to Remember. I don't cry to entertainment often.
8. I've always eaten at different restaurants whenever I've taken a trip to NYC. I can't remember the names. My ultimate favorite restaurant is called Douglass Pizza and Grill in New Brunswick.
9. I believe homosexuality is a sin, but that marriage equality must be legally recognized under the supreme law. The controversy about my opinion goes both ways, so I do feel lonely on this subject. People of my faith are disgusted by the fact that I believe gay marriage should be legalized (thereby expressing their lack of understanding of the Constitution), while others assume that I regard homosexuals as sinners (thereby expressing their lack of understanding of the implications of sinning).
The latter particularly frustrates me, and continuously hounds me sayings like "You think gay people should be imprisoned?" Of course not. While I believe homosexuality is a sin, I believe that pre-marital sex is forbidden. I also believe that drinking alcohol is forbidden.
Bam, I've broken both of those rules. Doesn't make me any better than the homosexual I view to be a sinner.
10. Biology, since I was quite good at the subject. Easy memorization. Also, learning about the intricacies of bodily functions is always a plus, along with dissecting a frog or two.
11. What is your favorite branch of social science and why?
12. Favorite Super Smash Bros. characters to play with?
13. What is the best relationship advice you've recievied?
14. Top seven all time favorite NBA players?
15. My birthday / halloween party was last week and the theme was video game characters, if you would've attended who would you have gone as?
11. Economics, since it is a nice compromise of theoretical concepts and quantifiable data, while most other social sciences, to my understanding, revolve around abstracts.
12. Zelda, Marth.
13. 'Patience inspires your lover, so demonstrate yours every time you can.' That's probably the reason I'm largely impatient on pretty everything that doesn't involve my lover.
14. Meh, the seven all-time are sort of indisputable. I'll give my seven all-time favorite: Tim Duncan, Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson, Bill Russell, Jason Kidd (DEM FINALS >.<), Allen Iverson, Dirk Nowitzki,
16. What is one trait you picked up from your parents? (One from each)
17.What is your biggest concern when you think about the future?
18. How do you go about developing your moral views and what plays the biggest role in ultimately determining whether you deem something as right or wrong?
19. What do you think are the top five best virtues and worst vices respectively that person can have?
20. If all salaries were the same what would you do for a living?
16. I inherited my father's looks and hot-headedness, and my mother's sensitivity and hair type.
17. The value of the dollar. I'm thinking of investing in gold.
18. Largely off of metaphysical religious elements (Holy books, sayings), and my interpretations of said beliefs. The role of the religious scholar is incredibly dangerous, as the punishment given for every individual who follows a wrong decree or suggested interpretation falls upon the scholar.With the way modern day scholars spout out nonsense, I feel as though that has been lost.
19. Best virtues:
-...the polar opposite of everything above...?
20. I'd probably be as much of an art-nut as Acidrain. A book illustrator or painter.
21. Do you subscribe to any academic journals and if so which ones and what have you learned from them?
22. If you had to spend the rest of your life either deaf or blind which would you choose?
23. What would you do if you recieved a Death Note?
24. Favorite ride at Six Flags and what other theme parks have you been to?
25. How are sound waves, or photons, or odors, or flavors, or touches, detected by a sensory organ and converted into electrical impulses that provide the brain with information about the external world?
21. I don't have a subscription to any academic journal. I do read the weekly The Economist and Forbes, as well as my father's InformationWeek. I was introduced to cloud computing through InformationWeek, as well as the downplays of the threat of IT outsourcing due to cultural and communication gaps.
22. Deaf. While not being able to listen to music would be a pain, less assistance would be needed for daily tasks for being deaf as opposed to being blind.
23. Neither heaven nor hell, but into oblivion? Same as Light, except I probably would not seek to muscle my way into the circle of those looking for me and arouse suspicion. Crushing evil would be my priority.
24. Nitro was my first roller coaster (as it is for most) and thus holds a special place in my heart. I accompanied two friends on my first time on the ride, one of whom was also a roller coaster rookie. Unlike me, though, he was frightened and didn't want to ride. The other one forced him to, saying that he'd enjoy himself. On the slow ride up to the first arch, the scared friend broke down into tears, and the one pushing him to ride starting crying also, afraid that the roller coaster would kill the scared friend through cardiac arrest or something.
The scared friend went on to enjoy himself throughout the rest of the ride, screaming in excitement, much to the fury of the other guy. Was laughing my ass off the entire way.
25. ...that's sort of like asking how wind exerts a force on a low-density object, propelling it in a certain direction. From my understanding, the cochlea transforms the vibrations picked up the middle ear into "messages" for an auditory nerve to pick up, for instance. I'm not going to pretend I know any further specifics.
Actually screw it, might as well abuse you till the end. ^_^
21. Why am I Friar Lawrence?
22. There are various theories/models/ideas about the ultimate nature of the cosmos. There's the various string theories where the universe, matter, and energy are high dimensional strings. There's an informatic view of the universe, seeing the quantum world as nothing more than a logical structure with packets of digital information.
Ignoring all embarrassments you may have, what do you think is at the bottom of the universe, the ultimate nature of the cosmos?
23. Do you think, in the long run, assuming we don't kill ourselves off, that the traditional systems of morality (religions from antiquity, etc.), are evolutionarily viable, or do you see them dying off as global society develops further?
24. What is your view of abiogenesis, and the creation of life from a spontaenous evolution of inorganic materials and specific conditions (horrible paraphrashing but you can look up abiogenesis if you don't know it~)?
25. OMF is a natiion/city state that just went some plague or seige. There are a number of survivors and they must band together to survive and escape, or die. Who is surviving and who is dying first? Why?
Much better :3
21. You seem resourceful and like to remain a moderate on certain issues. Much like Friar Lawrence.
22. Embarassments ignored. I believe God exists everywhere, in all realms we believe exist through any and all theories as well as the universe as we understand it. I am inclined to believe the informatic view, as it is the most reasonable and extensive attempt to conceptualize the existence of our universe.
23. I'd have to disagree with you on the "development" or "progression" of our society. For our society to abandon its traditional systems of morality would be more indicative of moral decay, which has happened quite a bit over the past millenia. As much as we would love to consider our collective tolerance and understanding of one another as progression (of which it is), self-identity crisis conflict would inevitably take place on a massive scale, leading to chaos. We will either kill ourselves off, or the world will end, whichever occurs first.
24. I have heard of it, but I'm willing to wait for more to be learned about it by scientists before coming up with any conclusions. At most, it is worth looking into, but not an area of research that has as much of a devoted interest as say, astronomy.
23. What is the bolded part about? Do you have some kind of animosity towards the wealthy?
24. How do you think the world will be different 300 years from now?
25. In the classic trolley problem, (it's in the spoiler tag below if you aren't already familar with it) what moral obligations if any does the bystander have in that situation? What would you personally do if it were you in that position?
23. Of course not, lol. At the time, I simply found them to be snobby.
24. China would be the global leader, with the United States reduced to a third world country (RON PAUL, PLEASE SAVE US). However, due to public pressure, the Chinese financial system would operate heavily on the mechanics of the free market than socialism.
25. The bystander has no moral obligation. There is no "right" or "wrong" in the matter, as he is not responsible for what happens to any individual on the track, simply because it is not his outright duty. Any decision that he makes can be either interpreted as either right or wrong depending on different rationalizations.
I would switch the track over to the track with one person. I view five lives to be more important than one.
Until the very end~ because the Nurse wouldn't give up before it's over
(and thank you for your answers to my other questions, that was so much fun to read! <3)
22. If you could hold everyone's attention in the world for five minutes, what would you tell them?
23. What is your favourite arc of Fairy Tail and why?
24. Did you randomly choose Romeo and Juliet or do you actually like this play? If the later, what do you like the most about it?
25. In literature, mythology, manga, movies, comics, tv series, etc., which characters do you consider as true heroes? And why?
Glad you enjoyed it <333
22. I would tell them to seek to inspire others through acts of kindness and goodwill alone. Talk will forever be cheap. Action will have true effects.
23. Edolas Arc was fantastic, one of the most well-written arcs of any manga I have ever read. While the fights were lackluster, the drama and suspense more than made up for it.
24. I like it. Well, I did play Tybalt in the middle school production for it, so yeah. The elements of compromise and unnecessary conflict are very well highlighted.
25. Manga: Akise Aru from Mirai Nikki. He had the courage to sacrifice all chances he had with Yuki to ensure Yuki's safety. The noblest of true heroes.
And that concludes the final tour of my shop
Stay observant, my comrades.
And thank you.
