Rory, over at aguycalledbloke is asking some nutty questions. I decided to pick a few to answer just because hey, sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you don’t.
What if we could upload our consciousness into a machine – would you do it and why?
No. Why? It would be too much like immortality and I believe that it is the knowledge that our time here is limited, that we only get this one chance that gives our lives meaning. Plus you can’t drink coffee as an upload and life without coffee is just not worth living.
Does anyone really … erm, vanish with out a trace
Yes, and I know where they go but I’m not telling. Psssst, see the next question for a hint.
Pixies exist right?
Oh definitely! Of course what most people don’t understand is that they’re really just intrusions into our dimension of pan-dimensional beings. A lot like hummingbirds and elves.
What’s the best thing you have ever broken??
My hip! Man I loved that hip too. It was all neat and flexible, the orthopedic surgeon tells me he can put in a new one but my mom gave me this so I think I’ll hang on to it for awhile.
What was the strangest punishment your parents ever gave you as a kid?
None. I’m one of those children, a simple “I’m very disappointed with your behavior” was enough to send me into tears and swear off the offending activity for life. I still won’t ride a bicycle on the street after dark.
Okay, if l asked you to describe yourself using just one word – JUST ONE – which word best describes your whole personality?
Smartass. That’s one word right? Although most people would probably describe me as “eclectic” because “weird” might get the shiznit slapped out of them.
OK, that’s it from me tonight, I’ve got to go power up the improbability drive which requires a cup of really hot tea.
Back to you Rory ~Peace ~JPP
