Finally, a DOTW I know, albeit superficially and curious to know more about
1) What according to you is the best weapon to be used in a war and why?
Deception. A well planned gambit can be a game changers. And that which yields is not always weak.
2) The best:
b) Book you have ever read: Green Eggs and Ham. Nostalgia speaks.
c) Movie you have ever seen: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Nostalgia speaks again.
d) Visual you have ever seen: The look in a dogs eyes when you come home
3) Your favorite:
a)sound and why : The baying of a hound dog, it is just something out of this world
b)room in your house and why: My bedroom, because I conduct the most fun activity of my life there - sleeping
4) What is your highest/ultimate ambition in life?
I want to grow old and really really senile, so I can drive everyone batshit crazy!
5) Are you superstitious? If yes, what is your pet superstition if any?
Not really, but I cross myself everytime I drive by roadkill
6) Do you believe in the institution of marriage (why/why not)?
No I feel that marriage is an old archaic institution that really doesn't hold much meaning. People get married for all sorts of frivolous reasons. A relationship is something intimate between two people and I don't think you need rituals, a legal paper and all that jazz to have a happy and fulfilling relationship. I beleive in commitment, and feel that when two people commit to each other thats all that there ought to be. You don't need to get married.
If in a relationship that lasts, I probably would get married though because I think one still needs the social and legal benefits of it. I wish more countries were like Sweden where you didn't have to bend and conform.
7) How would you react in following situations:
a) you found out that your best friend stabbed you in the back. You confront them and they are ashamed of the act and ask for your forgiveness remorsefully? I'm a naive softie, I forgive very easily
b) If your boss insults you in front of others for a minor fault of yours I wouldn't take a job where my boss is a jerk. If I end up with such a boss I would quit or them in serious trouble with HR
c) If you are in a position of power and get an opportunity to misuse it for your benefit without the scope of being found out. Ah, I don't know. I like to believe I have good ethics, but I'm human too and succumb to temptation. I may give myself small perks, but I would never do wrong by anyone else in the process
d) stuck in an elevator full of bimbos you dislike I'd hope someone makes out so I can take a video and leak it
8) In a potential love interest:
a) the personality trait most attractive to you: good conversation is sexy, I dig people whom I can hold good conversations with
b) the physical feature you dig most: eyes and smile
9) What is the best revenge according to you?
It depends on the person. For people with a conscience forgiveness is the best revenge. For arrogant people humiliation is the best revenge. For sociable people isolation is the best revenge. And sometimes, total annihilation is the best revenge.
10) 10 years down the line, how do you picture your life?
Ah, I day dream a lot, but other than that I don't see more than a few moments ahead in life
11) What is your biggest
a) regret in life so far, if any? I don't believe in regrets. I stand by everything said and done, embracing the good and the bad.
b) achievement in life so far, if any? I made it out alive this far. Thats something eh?
c) weakness I'm a genuinely nice person
d) strength I'm a genuinely nice person
Yes, its a double edged sword.
12) From among IF members
a) most similar to your own personality Pinkfreud/Omnipotent Taco
b) you are most likely to lose a debate to if ever There is no such thing as losing debates. No matter how informed and articulate the other side is, clearly they are wrong and just being delusional about winning. Jokes aside, if people are able to present their arguments in a polite, well balanced manner - I'm always willing to see the other side. Even though Ajnu is always on the opposite side of me in all moral and religious debates, I usually respect and understand her POVs. Even though Gauri_3 strongly leans towards many conservative/GOP policies and I bleed blue, I can see where she comes from. Even though Axeion believes that sexual orientation is a choice, which is the exact opposite of what I believe, I'm able to understand and accept her perspective on how she presents it.
c) most intriguing among strangers All the strangers who have intrigued me have befriended me
d) has the best sense of humor according to you DejaVu
e) is the most balanced personality you have seen on the forum SheldonBazinga, BheegiBasanti, DejaVu, you
f) you find most irritating Ah this is a loaded question - but I'm easily irritated - I get irritated by nonsensical spammers, patronizing pricks, holier thanst thou preachers, relentless perverted flirts, diabetic sweeteness, obsessive fans, even more obsessive haters, misogynist bas***ds, bitchy gossip girls, holy book thumpers, mountain out of molehill makers, weird gibberish spewers, serial MID makers...so on and so forth...
13) Lastly, write a few words about me from what you have noticed so far (I couldn't resist this golden opportunity, so making hay while the Sun shines )
I think you are one of the smarter and saner members. You're not obsessed about any celebrity or show. I've seen you steer clear of drama. Your posts are usually constructive. IF would be better if more people were relaxed like you.
I think you can be exceptionally eloquent. That one testimonial you wrote for Axeion was wonderfully penned. I was actually jealous, that I didn't write something that neat.
You are quite a friendly sociable person. And I think socially incompetent people like me can drive the socially mannered people like you up the wall at times. Sometimes I'm quite baffled at how my friends tolerate me.
