I'm borrowing this from another board of which I'm a member, but it's a thread that's gone on for 46 pages and which has lasted for years. We don't mind necroposting in this thread, so newbies, go ahead and post!

Here's the idea:

This is a great way to find out a little more about each other.

I'll start it off by asking a question about you (as long as it's not rude). The next person should answer that question and ask a question in turn.

What about window screens?

Eek. Disobeyed Rule 11.82b: Answering a question with a question shall be forbidden.

What was the question?
 
Posted by CrawGator (Member # 392) on October 20, 2005, 15:47:
 
I never did anything despicable to one of my ex girlfriends. However, as far as family goes, it's a toss up between rigging my brother's bedroom doorknob to shock him when he tried to get into his room, and duct taping his arms and legs while he was sleeping off a night on the town.

Let's get the opposite of the question Spiderman posed.

Posted by Rhonwyyn (Member # 2854) on October 20, 2005, 19:30:
 
ApologetiX! But wait, they're not obscure.

I like Patmos. They're a Moldovan group fronted by an amazing violinist. They play all sorts of really cool folk songs and classical stuff. I'll have to upload a song or two for you to hear.

Do you use correct fingering when you type?
 
Posted by MacManKrisK (Member # 955) on October 20, 2005, 19:35:
 
Yes, absolutely!

What is your favorite radio station?
 
Posted by Rhonwyyn (Member # 2854) on October 20, 2005, 19:50:
 
Oh man, that's a hard one to choose. I have three:

WITF Local public radio station
I like its afternoon news programs and weekend programming. Can you say "Car Talk," "Michael Feldman's Whaddya Know?," and "Prairie Home Companion"?

WDAC Somewhat more conservative Christian radio
This is the station I get best at work, so I listen to this practically every night. I really like it 'cause I get a lot of news that I wouldn't get if I watched local news or listened to NPR. It also plays radio dramas like Bookshelf Adventures and Adventures in Odyssey. They also broadcast Focus on the Family and Family Life Today. David Jeremiah has been going through a series on Revelation and End Times. Definitely gives me something to think about while I'm proofing ads!

WJTL Contemporary Christian radio
I listen to this when I'm not in the mood for WITF's classical music and on my way home from work. I used to listen to Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory on my way home from work, but I haven't been in the mood for far-out stuff recently.

What are your fave TV stations/channels?
 
Posted by maximile (Member # 3446) on October 21, 2005, 03:36:
 
BBC2 and C4.

What's your worst habit?
 
Posted by Swiss Mercenary (Member # 330) on October 21, 2005, 10:59:
 
That would be picking my nose and then eating it (yes I know very disgusting)

Have you ever got so drunk you do not remember what you did?
 
Posted by Stereo (Member # 748) on October 21, 2005, 11:02:
 
(Second edit - beaten twice!)
 
Posted by Sxeptomaniac (Member # 3698) on October 21, 2005, 11:02:
 
I have never been drunk at all. (though I do drink)

(And I know exactly who Patmos is, Rhonwyyn. They played a few concerts at the college here, though I couldn't make it to them.)

Who do you think is the most interesting historical figure?
 
Posted by Rhonwyyn (Member # 2854) on October 21, 2005, 11:46:
 
Moses. If you read the Tanakh, he was definitely a quirky guy!

What's your collegiate alma mater?

EDIT: If someone else submits a post while you're still composing yours, don't worry about it (Stereo). It's okay. We'll just have more questions to answer! [Big Grin]

My birthday (hey, it's a holiday to me!)

What's the weirdest name in your family (for example, I have a cousin named Fairy-Mabel)
 
Posted by Stereo (Member # 748) on October 21, 2005, 13:31:
 
My family name can be a male first name, and my brother's first name is composite, so he is the three-first names guy. (And being a girl with a first name that can be a family name - if you forget the final 'e' - you can imagine how many times I've answered phone calls asking for Mr. (my last name) (my first name).) Not quite what you expected, but funny enough, I hope.

Now, on a scale of 0 to 10, how would you rate your humanity score? (0 being Devil bred, and 10, free pass for Heaven - or whatever after-life bliss you believe in.)

(Rhon, two or more questions at the same time would quickly become confusing, I believe.)

Actually, anytime of the day but if I have to choose, lights on.

Posted by Rhonwyyn (Member # 2854) on October 23, 2005, 21:26:
 
I'm not sure which is worse: being overweight or still having somewhat minor acne at the age of 25. I'm really considering being tested for PCOS. So yeah, I'd change either of those.

Getting married.


What was the best day in your life so far?
 
Posted by dragonman97 (Member # 780) on October 23, 2005, 23:54:
 
Hmm...I don't think I've lived quite long enough to have a 'best day' - not one that I can recall anyway. I've had a number of very good ones, though. Today was a pretty decent one, and it's carrying through into the night when one considers all the free espresso I ended up getting. [Wink]

Favorite Sci-Fi author?
 
Posted by Tom- geeking around (Member # 2876) on October 24, 2005, 08:15:
 
Terry Pratchett. But his books rather belong into the "fantasy" section.. So I guess I have none..

Are there any "tiny details" that piss you off beyond belief? (ie: someone left the toilet seat down).

Thomas
 
Posted by Stereo (Member # 748) on October 24, 2005, 09:10:
 
I'd say people who mix up science-fiction and fantasy. (Don't feel too bad, Tom, you seem to know the difference. [Wink] )

It's not a book, but the "Scopes Monkey Trial" was totally perverted when made into a movie. For example, in real life, Scopes wasn't a science teacher; he was a football coach the ACLU recruited as a test case.

Posted by MacManKrisK (Member # 955) on October 26, 2005, 09:26:
 
How do I take it? or how do I prefer it? (I'll answer both)

I take it practically any way if I'm desparate.

I prefer it with a little sugar (no artifical crap, please), some powdered "whitener" and a little splash of milk.

Do you play any musical instruments, and if so what?

Yes I have and still do.

But let me explain. Currently we are ridding ourselves of Fujitsu hard drives. The ones that few years ago had defective controller chips. Well the company that w3aranteed the systems checks these bunk drives when they get them from us. So after one fails I make sure that it will never operate again. A few choice bounces off the work bech suffices.


What is the longest that you have gone without sleep?
 
Posted by dragonman97 (Member # 780) on October 26, 2005, 11:07:
 
Hmm...longest without sleep? I believe that'd be somewhere around 27 hours - during an all-nighter spent w/a friend. Then again, there was HOPE5, but I might have cat-napped a bit -- same probably goes for some of my travelling, where I didn't bother to sleep the night before.

It looks to me like the city question wasn't exactly answered - I don't quite grok "Milton Keynes" as an answer to that. I was meaning to take that one, so here goes: New York. Runners up would be: London, San Francisco, Boston, and Seattle - in no particular order of preference.

Too many interesting things to explore, but only a few I could build a career on. Don't take me wrong, I like programming a lot, but I feel like I'm missing so many wonderful opportunities...

Um. Apparently I'm as confused as you now. Do you take issue with my calling Toronto a "big" city? It's certainly larger than the city I grew up in (pop. 18k) or the one I live outside now (Ithaca, pop. maybe 80k when the students are here). Or maybe you can't believe I like Toronto more than the other cities I listed.

By the way, by "LA" I meant "Los Angeles", not "Louisiana".

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
 
Posted by Steen (Member # 170) on November 27, 2005, 13:05:
 
First, we must define what, in general, is a pin. A pin is generally a length of stainless steel, generally sharpened on one end and topped by a generally larger bit of metal on the other which, as a matter of general hearsay, is generally about one millimeter in diameter. Generally the material is generally stainless steel. Generally stainless steel generally is made up of iron in general.

It may be worth noting here that it is not considered polite to make voodoo dolls and stick pins in them due to people using the words "general" and "generally" too often.

For the sake of simplicity, we will assume the pin is made up entirely of iron, as this is the element in most abundance and, of the three main elements that make up stainless steel, has heaviest mass per atom.

For the pin to be sharpened implies that the shaft must, of necessity, be larger than the point. Since the point must have at least one atom in it, the shaft must then have at least two. The head of the pin must also be larger than the shaft, ensuring that it contains at least three atoms.

Next, we have to determine what would constitute dancing on the head of a pin. Since the head must be larger than the shaft of the needle, to properly dance on the head of a pin implies that an angel must occupy at least three atoms worth of the head of the pin, otherwise the angel is simply dancing on one or two iron atoms and cannot be said to be properly dancing on the head of the pin.

I would imagine such a dance would involve standing astride two atoms and alternately placing a foot on the third, then returning it to it's starting point. The angel puts it's left foot in, for instance, then takes the left foot out. Then puts the left foot in again and, perhaps for variety, may even shake it all about. Perhaps a bit of a spin and then repeat with the right foot.

Or maybe it's the other way around. The question of whether angels lead with their left or right foot while dancing is beyond the scope of this answer, however, and will be left up to the reader to address.

Now, the head of a pin will be somewhere between three atoms and one millimeter wide and dome shaped. Using the formula for the area of a surface of half a sphere, we are going to assume I did the math and it rounded nicely to .015 square centimeters. Using some more extreme math wizardry and google, we continue to blatantly plagiarize numbers from some other site, claiming the work as our own and we come up with the size of an iron atom and inevitably, the number of atoms of iron in the head of a pin. No, really, it's exact. Spheres pack perfectly with no wasted surface area. Leave me alone.

Oh, the answer was 4 x 10^13. Precisely. And you're not allowed to question it when we divide that by 3 and come up with a maximum of 1.333 x 10^13 dancing spaces on the head of the pin later.

Now, we come to the all important questions of cover charges, bouncers who don't let angels in, devil worshippin' dance music that drives them away, spilled drinks and vomit on the floor that make part of the dance space unusable, long lines for the bathrooms and the price of a ping pong ball related show in thailand.

Err... wait, that was my last club experience. Moving on.

We now have a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 13,333,333,333,333 dance spaces available on the head of a pin. But, as anyone going to a club and seeing that maximum occupancy sign can attest, dance space will never equate to how many individuals will actually cram themselves into some nook or cranny on the floor when a good song comes on.

Given that angels are friendly critters and that only one foot actually need be on the ground at any given time, a single three foothold dance space can actually contain two dancers where one of the angels has a foot up in the air. The angels would then take turns putting a different foot in the air, shaking it wantonly no doubt. Perhaps even showing an ankle if they -really- like each other.

This gives us a minimum of 2 possible angels and a maximum of 26,666,666,666,666 angels. And can you even begin to comprehend how much goodness 26,666,666,666,666 angels in one place would represent. The number alone just sounds holy. Or something.

And the follow up question is: Why did I waste ten minutes doing this?

Plain or Peanut M&Ms?

Peanut!

Have you broken your New Years resolution(s) yet? If so, what was it?
 
Posted by Ugh, MightyClub (Member # 3112) on January 05, 2006, 20:52:
 
No, but only because I don't believe in making New Year resolutions. I resolve to do things when I damn well please [Smile]

Why don't we celebrate the New Year on the first day of spring?
 
Posted by Stereo (Member # 748) on January 06, 2006, 06:53:
 
For the same reason a new day begins at 00:01 (that is, just after midnight) - to leave us some hope better things are coming.

Who are you thinking about?
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on January 06, 2006, 10:20:
 
Amanda. As always.

What's one thing about your pesonality you wish you could change and why?

I wouldn't mind being more sociable.

How did you find out about GeekCulture?
 
Posted by Rhonwyyn (Member # 2854) on January 08, 2006, 20:28:
 
I found it on /. and now I visit GC much more than /. Sometimes I even forget about /. until someone on here reminds me! (I know, I know. Bad Geek! [Razz] )

If you had $1 million and could ONLY give it to charity, which ones and how much to each? (May be in percentages.)
 
Posted by JulioC (Member # 4370) on January 08, 2006, 20:33:
 
Id give it to myself- Im my own charity [Wink]

If that doesnt count, then Id hand it out to public schools and get some libraries filled.

And your question would be....?
 
Posted by JulioC (Member # 4370) on January 08, 2006, 20:43:
 
Do beige socks go well with white shoes?
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on January 09, 2006, 07:08:
 
Amanda would suggest the answer is yes -- she is *always* wearing two completely different socks.

Personally, however, my socks have to match, and so my answer to your question, is no.

Do you have any particular routine or habit that you do every day that you get miffed if its interrupted?
 
Posted by YaYawoman (Member # 4505) on January 09, 2006, 07:13:
 
I love my morning coffee,smoke and newspaper. If it gets interrupted I feel cheated.

When you argue do you finish it so you can go to bed with a clean slate, or do you hold it in and continue the next day?

I try to finish. He's not always so willing.

Least favorite smell?

Isn't the bedroom stuff supposed to be kept in the bedroom? Bad Xanthine, no cookie! [evil]
 
Posted by Xanthine (Member # 736) on January 09, 2006, 10:37:
 
Oh bloody hell. I knew someone was going to take that the wrong way. I was talking about arguments.

Bad zesovietrussian! No cookie for you either!
 
Posted by Stereo (Member # 748) on January 09, 2006, 13:18:
 
Ok, over with the nonsense, on with an answer. My least favorite smell that comes to mind is the one emitted by a chocolate factory. It's halfway between chocolate (yum!) and burned rubber(yuck!). So there I go sniffing around, trying to find out which one it is most like, and end up with a bad taste in my mouth. So it's the smell I'd avoid if I can.

Red, white, or rosé? with extra point for: wine or cider (or other)? sparkling or flat? and ice, fire or standard?

I'll take a good solid red any day of the week. Sparkling wine? Not on my watch. Flat and standard, all the time. I'm not much of a wine drinker, though...mostly because I'm snooty about my alcohol, and thus it's not a habit I can much afford. More of a beer 'n whiskey girl m'self.

Who's your favorite vocalist? This can be singer, rapper, or just somebody that you love to hear speak.

Right now? Ella Fitzgerald. Changes, depending on my mood though.

What's your ideal pet?
 
Posted by Grummash (Member # 4289) on January 09, 2006, 14:00:
 
Cats - low maintainence, stylish, etc etc


Minimalism, or clutter?
 
Posted by Ugh, MightyClub (Member # 3112) on January 09, 2006, 14:10:
 
Ideally, minimalism. In actuality, clutter.

Have you ever jumped out of an airplane for fun (while it was off the ground, to be specific)?

Can't say I have. Wouldn't mind, though.

What's your favorite prank?
 
Posted by Richard (Member # 2868) on January 10, 2006, 13:48:
 
Unplugging the phone cord from my parent's computer, then telling them to call AOL Tech Support.

Are you a Cat or a Dog person?
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on January 11, 2006, 06:16:
 
<flame-war-ignition>
Definitely dog. Cats are boring, and stupid.

Have you *ever* been really screwed out of a lot of money by a business? (Forget personal loss.)
 
Posted by Stereo (Member # 748) on January 11, 2006, 07:45:
 
Nope. I almost got screwed of a small amount by Columbia House (they wanted me to pay for a DVD they never sent me in the first place). I managed to have them call the recovery dogs off my a... I mean, my back.

Will you buy one of the new Intel-based Macs (MacBook or iMacs)?
 
Posted by Scubbo (Member # 4832) on January 21, 2006, 05:48:
 
No, because I <<gasp>> don't use Macs at all.....

/me covers his head and hides from the pitchfork-wielding mob

I know, I know, you can't be a proper geek unless you use mac and/or linux, but I love my games far too much to convert!

Have you ever woken up and not realised you did something the previous night until someone told you/you heard about it/you read about it on the internet?

Scubbo asked:

Not exactly, but I was quite surprised to see footage of me juggling and acting goofy at a midnight parade being shown on a local news broadcast the following day.

Which brings to mind the question: What's the most embarassing thing you've been filmed/videotaped doing?
