Ooh, me too, me too!
Born in 1986 (to make it easier if this thread survives longer than a couple of weeks
This changes depending on my mood, but Les Misérables
by Victor Hugo, To Say Nothing of the Dog
by Connie Willis, The Doll
by Bolesław Prus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Doll_%28novel%29
) and The Trilogy
by Henryk Sienkiewicz (don't bother reading this, I am aware of no non-abysmal English translation - in fact, it's my dream to produce one eventually) are among the top contenders.
...fine, I'll go with The Doll
Like with books, this changes quite often, but Fight Club
, the Lion King
, the original Star Wars
trilogy all come to mind.
Favorite Sci-Fi universe?
Does fantasy count? In that case, the Witcher universe. If not, I'm torn between Star Wars and Star Trek (yeah, I'm boring).
Favorite non-fiction book?The Selfish Gene
and/or Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus
What is your dream job? (doesn't have to be real)
Martial arts teacher or translator. Funnily enough, both are technically a possibility, but highly unlikely.
If you were a pro wrestler, what you be your intro music?
Can't imagine, I don't like pro wrestling.
Philosophy on love?
Love is both underrated and easily narrowed down just to the "butterflies in stomach, romantic-sentimental obession" kind of love. Much to love's detriment.
If you were a world leader your major concern would be?
Trying not to let my enthusiasm for "fixing" things turn into abuse of power.
Which will happen first: regeneration or cybernetic implants for lost appendages?
Implants, by a large margin.
Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Wars - for the original trilogy. I'm torn on which expanded universe is better.
Your thoughts on the military?
Like war's, its existence is probably a necessary evil. I'm anti- anything military to the point of having a stick up my butt, though.
I'm a Catholic as far as the sense of identity/belonging goes, my actual beliefs are closer to liberal Protestant, sprinkled with bits and pieces from many other religions and philosophies. Or to put it another way - I believe there are only two religions in the world (when you strip away the unknown, dogmas and religions tradition) - the religion of love and the religion of fear. Guess which I pick
Favorite alcoholic beverage?
No real preference - there's just too many types of food for me to settle on one.
Either going blind or finding out that I utterly can't trust my own mind (e.g. that I am schizophrenic).
Yet to come, or so I hope
I dunno. Too shy and self-conscious to go to a rock concert. Too lazy to go to a classical music concert.
