I got lost in Brink Hall today. Just like old times.
Anyway, I have a super cool idea for an R project that will involve a lot of frustration graphing. It will involve heat maps and crossword puzzles…that is all.
In the meantime…
3801. Who is your favorite Lord of the Rings charater and why?
I’ve neither seen nor read any LotR (and don’t intend to). However, seeing as how the next 15 questions are so are about the series, I’m just going to make some crap up like I know what I’m talking about. Okay? Okay.
3802. In the Lord of the Rings…how do the characters go on when the forces against them are so powerful?
Do Hobbits have powers? If so, powers. If not, PO-TAY-TOES.
How can they go on when so many awful things have happened?
Boil ‘em, mash ‘em…(yes, this IS the only LotR reference I know. It IS LotR, right? ‘Cause I’m fully prepared to reference this at least two more times).
3803. What is it that makes Middle Earth worth saving?
It’s the crème filling between the two hard cookies of Lower Earth and Upper Earth.
3804. Is Frodo making a personal sacrifice by taking the ring to be destroyed?
Only if it’s his ring. I’d be pissed if I found a cool ring and had to burn it/throw it in a pit/incinerate it with soul power/whatever the hell he’s supposed to do with it.
3805. What would you do in Frodo’s place?
Go reincarnate some dodos, just so I could run a farm called Frodo’s Dodos.
3806. When you saw the two towers did you really want the Ents (Treebeard etc.) to get involved in the war?
Sure, why not?
3807. Why didn’t Merry and Pippin just allow the Ents to take them home to the shire?
‘Cause the Ents were too busy making fun of Pippin’s name.
What could two tiny hobbits do in a great war?
Advocate tiny peace.
3808. Why did the elves go to Helm’s Deep?
They weren’t having fun in Helm’s Shallow.
3809. Who is the most heroic LOTR character and what makes them a hero?
Stevie. He’s heroic because he has to deal with Hobbits.
3810. What characters in LOTR put their own interests before the interests of all?
Petey. DAMN YOU, PETEY!
What characters put the interests of all above their own interests?
The unselfish ones, I would think.
3811. Aragorn left the elvish girl he loved. How could he leave someone he loved?
Frodo stole their engagement ring.
Isn’t love the highest thing that there is?
It’s not higher than Upper Earth.
What could he possibly have valued higher than love that he left her for?
Tacos. Everybody loves tacos.
Do you agree with him?
3812. What LOTR character displays the most humanity?
3813. What did you notice that was different between the Two Towers book and movie?
The first involved reading. The latter involved watching.
3814. Why is Frodo so kind to Gollum?
‘Cause Frodo’s a nice guy?
3815. You are in Helm’s Deep on the eve of battle. Do you put on a suit of armor and fight, or crawl into the caves and hope to be protected?
I hop in the Batmobile and zoom out of there as quickly as possible.
3816. What have you risked your life for?
PO-TAY-TOES–okay I’m done.
3817. With the constant threat of violence, war, nukes, terror, chemicle weapons, etc. aren’t we all in a similar position to those in the Lord of the Rings?
You callin’ me a HOBBIT?!
3818. How can we go on when the evil in this world is so powerful?
Out of sight, out of mind.
How can we go on when so many awful things have happened?
Repression is a powerful thing.
3819. What is it that makes our Earth worth saving?
3820. Who’s responsibility is it to save our world?
3821. Who was more technologically advance in LOTR, the ‘good guys’ or the ‘bad guys’?
The neutral guys. They have Apple products.
3821. What was Tolkien saying by causing the Ents (trees) to come together with the river (by breaking the dam) and over throw Sauromon?
Haha, flashbacks to Howard the tree in Fallout 3. Weirdest. Quest. Ever.
3822. Should Wormtoung have been killed?
That sounds like a Pokemon.
From what little I’ve seen of Gollum, he’s obnoxious.
Why or why not?
However, nobody should be killed because of that.
3823. In the battle for Middle Earth, which LOTR character would you most like to be like and why?
I’d like to be the guy who wins.
3824. Which character do you think you actually WOULD be the most like?
Gollum’s obnoxious, so I’d probably be him.
3825. What is the overall ___ that you took away with you from this movie?
lesson or message?
It doesn’t matter if you’re hobbit or human…potatoes rock.
3826. Why do most people associate being spiritual or connected to the world as being a hippy?
3827. Why is passion and honest emotion equated with hallmark cards?
Are they? The only thing I think of when I think of Hallmark cards is my dad.
3828. What words set off alarms in your brain?
I have an alarm in my brain? Why the hell doesn’t it go off when it’s time for me to get up in the morning?! Slacker brain.
3829. Are you dancin in the dark?
Haha, I should, given how I dance.
3832. Is hell REALLY other people?
Sartre was spot-on.
3833. Or would it be more hellish to live totally without other people?
No. No it wouldn’t. Hell = other people.
3834. Legos or linkin logs?
3835. What books have you read more than once?
I actually haven’t re-read a book in a long time, what with my trying to finish my 200 Books list. Though I did re-read The Caine Mutiny for like the fortieth time a few years back.
3836. Do you get different things out of reading a book a second time a year or more after reading it the first time?
Is it because you are a different person after time passes?
Yeah, in a way. You’ve acquired more knowledge about the world and are able to reinterpret the book in a different light given what you now know.
3837. The person who goes to ____ is not the same person who comes back. Fill in the blank with anything you think fits.
3838. Quick! Empty your brain here!

NO! And never again.
3842. Does any part of your own body disgust you?

The Most Interesting Man in the World, of course.

3848. Paper or plastic?

Not as loose as a moose.
3856. What’s your favorite animal out of these: emu, otter, duck billed platypus, moose, skunk?

Orlando Bloom, Justin Timberlake, Joan Jett, John Denver, Baby Eve (the first human clone), Jennifer Lopez, Johnny Depp, George W Bush, David Bowie, Charleton Heston, Ralph Nader, Moby, Jeff Bridges, Kelly Osbourne, Frank Zappa, Bill Clinton, Britney Spears, Osama Bin Laden, The Pope, Eminem, Madonna
Aren’t a few of these dudes already dead? I pick…The Pope, Bill Clinton, David Bowie, Moby, John Denver, Madonna, and…why not? Bush.

Whoever wanted it and was the first to ask for it. Any takers?
3863. If you could grant immortality to one person who you do not know personally but know of (writer, politician, etc) who would you give it to?
Probably no one. Immortality would be a pretty crappy thing to have bestowed on you if you didn’t want it. There really wouldn’t be anything you could do about it, either.
3864. Name a person you love:
Name a person you admire:
Name a friend:
Name a relative:

Depends on the people and the context.

3868. Finish the sentences.
In a world where:
Avril Lavigne rules
Together, they were:
Why do so many movie trailers start off by saying ‘In a world..’?
Because it adds DRAMA!
3869. Make up a superhero with really unhelpful powers:
Captain Apathy and his sidekick Meh.
3870. A couple of days ago this guy won 14 million dollars and tried to donate 1 million to the salvation army. The salvation army turned the money down saying they didn’t want dirty gambling money.
Did they do the right thing?
I don’t know about right vs. wrong, but I think they did a foolish thing. He (hopefully) didn’t’ acquire the money illegally, so why is it “dirty”?
3871. If you had a spare million for charity work who would you donate it to?
Probably the Humane Society.
3872. What’s the craziest most shocking moment of rock and roll history that you can think of?
I have no idea.

Life sentence. I’d say capital punishment for this and the next, but that seems so inefficient and ineffective the way we have it now that it wouldn’t be worth it in my opinion.
Illicit drug sales?
Jail. Community service.
Again, illegal drugs? If illegal, jail time + possible rehab. If regular, party times and required sharing.
I can’t remember the difference between robbery and burglary. Burglary is actually just the breaking and entering portion of “I’m going into this dwelling to steal stuff!” isn’t it? So jail. Community service. Having to pay for the damages.

Do they have to be living?

3877. What is your new year’s resolution?
Stop being an idiot. It’s not going so well.
3878. Should the U.S. focus more on the threat from N. Korea or Iraq?
Antarctica. The penguins are ANGRY!
3879. Would you ever have plastic surgery?
3880. How can George Bush be considered a Christian when he a war-monger and the ten comandments say do not kill?
Good question. Ask a Christian.
3881. What is the most inetesting premise for a reality tv show that you can think of?
I thought that dream I had a few weeks back about “Neil and Prey” was a pretty awesome premise idea.
3882. Who is the Hollywood Star next to die of a drug overdose?
Hopefully none of them, but the odds of that are pretty much zero.
3883. Do you find yourself caring a lot about online people, even if you haven’t met or spoken to them off of the computer?
3884. When you hear the song puff the magic dragon what do you think?
Pete’s Dragon. Just ‘cause.

Pretty much everything.
3893. What are you not able to do alone?
Be with others.
3894. Do you feel more connected to earth air fire or water and why?
I always used to think I had power over the wind, so I guess I’ll have to say “air.” I’m an air sign, too, after all…
3895. Which two words belong together and why: life, seawater, chocolate, blood, hair piece
Life and seawater, because the former probably originated in the latter.
3896. If con is the opposite of pro, what’s the opposite of progress?
Old joke is old.
3897. Have you ever wanted to meet the inspectors with the numbers for names(i.e. inspected by 36)?
3899. If you could change 1 thing you did in the last 24 hours, what would it be & why?
I would have gone and exercised today. Was too depressed this morning to do anything.
3900. What is the most bizarre thing you’ve ever done?
Um. Do you know me?
