Better Know a Sloth! Part 4

After many weeks of no new questionnaires, I finally have a new one for you all, thanks in most part to da wonderful comb. And to quote him, "One word answers are for losers," so really try to answer these, guys! It is fun if you really try, I promise. ;)

1) What kind of a driver are you? And if you have yet to drive a vehicle, what kind of driver do you anticipate yourself being?

2) Do you tend to save money, or spend it?

3) What do you spend most of your money on?

4) What kinds of things do you like to do when you go on vacation?

5) What is something crazy you'd do if you had the money?

6) Are you a verbal gamer? (Do you tend to talk to your computer, or do you just sit there and quietly fume when something goes wrong?)

7) What superpower do you want? Why? What would you do with it? (Note that "every superpower, or the ability to do anything, or something like that is not an acceptable answer.)

8) What are some of your guilty pleasures?

9) What is your preferred method of torture? (Let's keep this clean and humorous, if you don't mind. Eg. Locking someone in a room with bars or glass walls with a whole bunch of adorable fuzzy creatures on the other side that want so badly to play with and be loved by him but they are just out of reach..." Darn...now I have to think of something new...)

10) Is there anything your family eats that most other people would probably find absolutely horrid and disgusting? If so, what?

11) If dacomb built a cabinet for sloth, what would it look like?

12) If you could train a monkey to do three things, what would they be?

13) How good are/were your grades in comparison to what you consider to be your level of intellect?

14) What is one kind of food that you are really picky about? (Eg. Your spaghetti has to be cooked just the right amount of time and the sauce has to have just the right consistency and meat:tomato sauce ratio.)

15) Tell us something random about yourself.

8 comments:

  1. 1) I am a defensive driver with tendencies towards speed. I have an affinity for racing games and have such studies lines and techniques but generally don't put them into practice. I have however drifted down off ramps for fun...

    2)I go through bouts of both spending and saving, I tend to budget for my non-critical spending though

    3) Goram student loans, a full quarter of my monthly income goes to ONE student loan...

    4) Sleep....

    5) If I had the money I would build myself a nice Bond villianesque lair. Complete with an old-fashioned Frankenstein type workshop. Tesla Coils and all.

    6) Don't really talk much while gaming unless I get Very agitated, which isn't very often

    7) Advanced technological aptitude in the vein of Tony Stark. Or just his ability to pick up women ;)

    8) I am a miniature war-gamer... Also I like J-Pop....

    9) Setting ring back tones to songs that people hate, for instance Still Alive for my younger brother

    10) I've had snake, grasshoppers, chocolate covered ants once, but that was part of survival training that my father put us through when I was younger.

    11) Geez, it would look like a normal kitchen cabinet with plenty of room for cookies!

    12) Smoke, what else would you train a monkey to do?!

    13) Um, in theory I'm one of the smartest people of my generation. I walked into one of the top ten schools in my field and was accepted immediately. Don't quite feel that way anymore though....

    14) Corned Beef Hash and Eggs Overeasy with a side of home fried potatoes. My father is the only person who has ever cooked them to my complete satisfaction.

    15) My parents wanted me to be a music major. >.>

    1) Me, driving? Look out. I'm an average driver I suppose, is scared a description? because it fits fine. ;)

    2) i save until I go shopping. ;) (i don't have my license... shopping is limited here)

    3) Clothes, socks, video games, more socks, music... some more socks... hair accessories... you get the picture... i like socks ;)

    4) Spelunking. I love rocks and caves... it's so entertaining.. I also like to sleep in the hammock... (where ever that is)

    5) Psh... I'd buy this house, remodel the entire thing and restore it to amazing.

    6) Something goes wrong? nothing ever goes wrong.... if it does i just ask my wonderful brother to fix it... i'd say i'm not verbal... but i do have physical giveaways... if i'm really concentrating my tongue sticks out ;)

    7) Invisibility and morphological powers. (turn into animals/etc)

    8) fluffy socks, brownies and kongregate ;)

    9) Shrinking people and keeping them in hamster cages. Mwuhahahahaha

    10) I eat artichokes... most people don't? But i really don't think there is anything too bizarre about us...?

    11) Psh... It'd be big and purple and green and brown and squishy, and similar to the wardrobe in Narnia... it's huge inside... we can shove anything in there. I mean anything. ;)

    12) Fly. Speak. Be my servant. Good monkey. (yes, I'm a Wicked fan... why to you ask?)

    13) They are normal to my intellect... i'm smart... less so in science

    14) Hmmm... I do like my salads a nice way... but really, I am not too particular...

    15) I'm actually a rather shy person.

  3. 1)I don’t drive and I anticipate being a careful driver

    2)I spend money, what else would I do with it? Most is spent on candy :)

    3)Oh…I should have read this before I answered the previous on I guess. I also spend money on books and TV series.

    4)I don’t go on vacation very often, but when I do I like to relax and explore a lot.

    5)I’d buy slightly more candy than I buy now.


    6)I’m very quiet and never talk to my computer, unless my computer speaks up first. If something goes wrong I try to fix it rather then fume.

    7)I would like to be able to stop time and teleport like Hiro Nakamura in Heroes :D By stopping the time I could just do anything I want and escape you other lame flying/invisible/flamethrowing “super” heroes!

    8) I’m not guilty, that other guy did it! I swear!

    9)Torture? That’s so mean :/ Why do you make so mean questions? You meanie!

    10)I’m very picky when it comes to food, so I don’t eat weird stuff that people would find horrid and disgusting. I mean, unless you find pizza horrid and disgusting…but then you’re just weird.

    11)It would be 30 feet wide, 7 feet tall, made of pure titanium with pretty paintings on it. It should be capable of storing hundreds of trolls with no possibility of escape.

    12) I would train it to cuddle, snuggle and huggle like a real Sloth.

    13) My grades are slightly above mediocre, and my level of intellect is slightly below “low”, I don’t think of myself as a very intelligent person. Being smart is too much of a struggle, I’m too last to make an effort.

    14) What kind of weird questions are these? o.Ò My food have to…errr, I dunno…taste good?

    15)Nothing is random about me. Nothing.

  4. Realized I missed one, so...here it is again. Only complete this time.

    1) I am a very dangerous mix of absentminded and intelligent. For some reason, I assume that only logical things will happen while I am driving, and that everyone knows how to dive well...unfortunately, this is not the case, and no matter how well I know this, I just can't be bothered to remember it while I am behind the wheel. Fortunately, I am also very very very lucky.

    2) I tend to save up large amounts of money, and then it all over the course of a few days or weeks...I blame my friends for this.

    3) I spend most of my money on food, since for some reason, everyone in my group of friends has parents that don't like stocking the kitchen with anything but the ingredients for a meal that would take an hour or so to make.

    4) When I'm on vacation, I like to do the same things I do when I'm at home: hang out, do nothing, and sleep, just in a different place. As long as my room is nice, and I'm not bothered to go out and sight-see or somesuch, I am happy.

    5) If I had the money, I would probably splurge on buying a whole bunch of movies, tv shows, and video games. This is crazy because I believe these things have no real value, but I love them so.

    6) I scream at my computer in my head, and do little dances for joy without moving. You'd probably not really notice that I was doing anything but sitting with an intensely blank stare if you watched me play. I do tend to smile and laugh out loud though when something really funny happens in chat. The "out loud" part is rare, though, and I think it scares my roommate when it happens.

    7) I want to be able to move atoms/molecules. Not necessarily rearrange them and make new things, but move them as I see fit. This way, I could walk through things, which I have wanted to do forever, mostly because I'm lazy and hate having to walk two miles when it could take me a quarter of a mile if I went in a straight line. I would also enjoy walking through peoples houses in the middle of dinner time with a vacant look on my face and pretend to be a ghost. I would also eat whatever I wanted, and then once it metabolized, just let big globs of fat fall out of me. Messy, but darn useful! Oh...I would also support my lazy lifestyle but not doing a darn thing, and just robbing people when I needed cash. But only those that could take/ wouldn't notice the loss.

    8) Popping zits, picking scabs, watching old Disney movies and pointing out all the sexual and racist stuff (did you notice that the chain gang in "Robin Hood" is compsed completely of raccoons? I mean, wth?!?) and listening to pop music like 'N Sync and Britney Spears, and many many others. In short, I hate myself and most of the things I do, but they feel sooooo good.

    9) I would force them to listen to things like Kids Bop and the Jonas Brothers for hours on end.

    10) When my Dad cooks a whole bird, be it duck, chicken, or what have you, he serves the back. It looks absolutely vile, so I avoid it like the plague. I don't even like eating the pieces that have touched it. My mom and brother seem to avoid it too...my dad is usually the one that ends up eating it, but that is still after all the other pieces have been eaten, so I have no idea why he insists on putting it out there.

    11) Well...I would say that if anyone else built us a cabinet, it would be difficult to tell that that was what it was, but in the case of dac, I guess it would have to look good and professional...hmm. I'm thinking it would be a massive cabinet with ladders leading to each drawer, and each of those opened to reveal a nice comfy bed. The sides would be soundproof, and we could all nap in our own individual drawers. 'Twould be fantastic. Now I want one, though. D:

    12) I would train him to grant me wishes...so I guess I only need one of those three things! Am I fantastic or what!?

    13) In the last 5 or 6 years, I have gotten terrible grades...which is just sad, because I have just gotten smarter. I believe my IQ is above 130 or something, not that IQ really counts for anything. I am ridiculously intelligent when it comes to almost anything but my own emotions. I just hate school and find the whole thing close to useless.

    14) I am very picky when it comes to pie. VERY picky.

    15) Love is one of, if not the most important things to me. If there is one thing I want to accomplish with my life, it would be something I'm not comfortable saying, but if there were TWO things, the second would be finding true love. The sad thing is, I'm too lazy and scared to go find it. I want love to come to me.

  5. 1) What kind of a driver are you? And if you have yet to drive a vehicle, what kind of driver do you anticipate yourself being?

    - I'm a nervous driver since I don't trust ANYONE on the road... be that as it may, I like to drive fast and sometimes without noticing I'll steadily begin accelerating more and more.

    2) Do you tend to save money, or spend it?

    - I save loads of money. You wish your bank account looked like mine.

    3) What do you spend most of your money on?

    - When I do spend money it's usually on food or entertainment (gadgets/games).

    4) What kinds of things do you like to do when you go on vacation?

    - Sleep (with company preferably).

    5) What is something crazy you'd do if you had the money?

    - I would periodically take in people who live on the street. Give them shelter and food. A chance to get employment and get their feet back on the ground. Once they're able to take care of themselves and find their own place to live, I'd find the next person to help.

    6) Are you a verbal gamer? (Do you tend to talk to your computer, or do you just sit there and quietly fume when something goes wrong?)

    - I rarely show emotion while on the computer. Like droops, if something's really funny I MAY laugh out loud.

    7) What superpower do you want? Why? What would you do with it? (Note that "every superpower, or the ability to do anything, or something like that is not an acceptable answer.)

    - The ability to heal myself and others. I'd go around healing, duh.

    8) What are some of your guilty pleasures?

    - Being an incorrigeable flirt, being snarky, being lazy.

    9) What is your preferred method of torture? (Let's keep this clean and humorous, if you don't mind. Eg. Locking someone in a room with bars or glass walls with a whole bunch of adorable fuzzy creatures on the other side that want so badly to play with and be loved by him but they are just out of reach..." Darn...now I have to think of something new...)

    - Hmm... I'd chain someone to an uncomfortable chair in the center of a pitch black room and make them watch non-stop Teletubbies.

    10) Is there anything your family eats that most other people would probably find absolutely horrid and disgusting? If so, what?

    - Cow tongue, probably.

    11) If dacomb built a cabinet for sloth, what would it look like?

    - Amazing... like every other piece that he creates. (I lack imagination. Sue me.)

    12) If you could train a monkey to do three things, what would they be?

    - The top three things in my life that take up the most time and I enjoy doing least. (My day job comes to mind)

    13) How good are/were your grades in comparison to what you consider to be your level of intellect?

    - Much lower than they should have been. I hated school and I concentrated far too much on gaming.

    14) What is one kind of food that you are really picky about? (Eg. Your spaghetti has to be cooked just the right amount of time and the sauce has to have just the right consistency and meat:tomato sauce ratio.)

    - Buttertarts. My buttertarts must be at a certain level of delicious. They should not have nuts in them. I can take or leave the raisins. They must taste fresh and NOT taste oily.

    15) Tell us something random about yourself.

    - I have never broken a bone in my body though I have had stitches once.

  6. 1) I'm a pretty rare driver actually. If you see me on the road, you probably wouldn't notice me, unless you tailed me, which irks me greatly. I'll slow down in the no passing zones for that one.

    2) I tend to spend my money over the course of a while. To be literal, I save it to spend later. Who doesn't though?

    3) I spend a bit on alcohol, cigarettes, a few indulgences, and the normal other things.

    4) I don't really go on vacation. Camping, I guess. It's nice to get away from civilization. (already a small town boy, but still...)

    5) If I had the money, I'd probably quit working, and live as is normally. Or get a bomb shelter. Not for fear of bombs, for a getaway that's just cool.

    6) I actually catch myself saying the sentence I just typed. I usually catch a typo, or ambiguous meaning, that way. Other than that, it's a laugh from those 'just perfect' times for it.

    7) I'd prefer to control wind. Original, no. Useful, yes.

    8) I bite my nails. Habitual, yet soothing. I enjoy multiplayer gaming...offline. Yes, I know, a monster! I also enjoy old school games.

    9) I would torture people with only giving them Pong to play. Ha! Some whine about new-gen games...think about it.

    10) Well, I rather love sour kraut. Everyone else hates it around me. (maybe it's the gas afterward)

    11) I think it'd be like a tree with a sloth as a secret handle. It'd probably be full of Sloth merchandise. Maybe he'd even sell his badges from there...

    12) I'd teach him to throw the feces at the deserved, to be a masseuse, and to play games. Come on, awesome partner. Plus, he's throw his feces at the friend that cheated and I'd get a back rub later. (after he washed his hands)

    13) Well, as soon as I hit high school, my grades dropped from straight A's. I didn't turn dim-witted, I just stopped caring about a letter on a piece of paper. I knew it, I just didn't feel I had to prove it. Complicated, sure.

    14) I must cook my own chicken noodle soup. Even if it's Campbell's in a can, I need to personally cook it. Although, I love the one I make. (I don't make the noodles though) I'm OCD on that.

    15) I'm picky about music. Country angers me, rap puts me to sleep. I have musical 'paths' I follow. It was on Megadeth for a few years, and currently am on the Edguy/Kamelot path.

  7. 1) What kind of a driver are you? And if you have yet to drive a vehicle, what kind of driver do you anticipate yourself being?
    (Never driven, but) I'd like to say defensive, but I think I know myself better than that. Idiocy pisses me off, and there's a lot of that on the road.

    2) Do you tend to save money, or spend it?
    Umm, generally spend it, but that's mainly because I have virtually no money to speak of most of the time, so saving isn't much of an option.

    3) What do you spend most of your money on?
    As said above, not enough for much discretionary stuff - basic sustenence, then books.

    4) What kinds of things do you like to do when you go on vacation?
    Flake out and relax. Sometimes travel to interesting places and look around, but usually just curl up and sleep in for a change.

    5) What is something crazy you'd do if you had the money?
    Pay the rest of my university money so I didn't have to rely on my parents and thus could speak my mind without fearing monetary reprisals (long story short, my mom and I have a lot of disagreements).

    6) Are you a verbal gamer? (Do you tend to talk to your computer, or do you just sit there and quietly fume when something goes wrong?)
    Depends on how bad things are going. If things go a little wrong (ie: ambushed by a random weakling in a FPS or running from Greyditch in Fallout 3), I'll happily curse the game, enemies therein, and anything else involved out. If things are REALLY bad (say, pinned down and surrounded by snipers in Farcry 2 - the most recent experience), I just make a face and either struggle through it or reload.

    7) What superpower do you want? Why? What would you do with it? (Note that "every superpower, or the ability to do anything, or something like that is not an acceptable answer.)
    Hmm...I'd have to say either telekinesis or the power of absolute command (like Lelouche in Code Geass - if I give an order, the person has to do it). Both would be so useful.

    8) What are some of your guilty pleasures?
    Hitting on some of the girls in sloth and listening to genitorturers (a really weird band)

    9) What is your preferred method of torture? (Let's keep this clean and humorous, if you don't mind. Eg. Locking someone in a room with bars or glass walls with a whole bunch of adorable fuzzy creatures on the other side that want so badly to play with and be loved by him but they are just out of reach..." Darn...now I have to think of something new...)
    Hmm...First the person must be tied up such that I can reach most of their body, then the tickling begins. Once I get bored, I find out what kind of music they hate the most, then put that on loop and leave them tied up until I decide to tickle them again (and if I don't like the music, it gets turned off during tickling).

    10) Is there anything your family eats that most other people would probably find absolutely horrid and disgusting? If so, what?
    My mother's chicken stew (it's this horrible light brown paste with unidentifiable chunks in it...I find it disgusting but the rest of my family loves it)

    11) If dacomb built a cabinet for sloth, what would it look like?
    A really well engraved wardrobe-like thing (if you've seen the BBC performance of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, the wardrobe in that is the kind of thing I'm thinking of), with sloths along the sides and doors and Zil_'s face at the top. Handles would all be limbs of sloths, the branches of a tree to which a sloth carving clings or miniature sloth carvings. Within there would be many compartments containing a variety of slothly implements, including (if not in use) the Trollslayer TM. Other items might include documentation of slothly culture and social rules. Two compartments would be padlocked and bolted tightly - one contains the supply of grey goo and the other the supply of ban goo. Keys are to be carried by mods and access is strictly forbidden except during incursions of trolls or spammers.

    12) If you could train a monkey to do three things, what would they be?
    Hmm...clean my place, fetch me the drink of my choice (and thus the ability to determine which bottle contains the requested drink) and to dispose of its own waste in a sanitary manner. If I had only one choice, the last one would take primacy.

    13) How good are/were your grades in comparison to what you consider to be your level of intellect?
    Somewhat lower than they should be - a lot of the marks I lose are due to silly mistakes (dropping negative signs, miskeying calculations in my calculator) rather than actual ignorance.

    14) What is one kind of food that you are really picky about? (Eg. Your spaghetti has to be cooked just the right amount of time and the sauce has to have just the right consistency and meat:tomato sauce ratio.)
    Any kind of mixed drink - I tend to make them much stronger than many people do...what's the point of a screwdriver if it tastes just like orange juice? (Drunkeness is the side effect, not the goal)

    15) Tell us something random about yourself.
    My top left front tooth is porcelain. The original one broke when I landed on the ski of my Dad's friend when I was 8 or so.
