Ceci n'est pas une personne.

Things which the always wonderful perpetualfog wanted to know:

  1. If you had to choose only one drug to be available to you for the rest of your life, which one would you choose and why?
    Good question... There are my three favorites, weed, shrooms, and e. As much fun as weed is, when I have it, I get nothing done, so I think that one is ruled out. Shrooms and E, on the other hand, or things I would do far less often, and seem to have very positive impacts on my mental well being. But, with e, I tend to get hurt (biting my lip, getting scratched up, etc. So, I would have to go with shrooms. Shrooms are a visit with my subconscience, a trip to the play ground, and a chance to let fantasies run free.
  2. If Burning Man banned and condemned drug use, would you still go?
    I think so. As much as I love the art and the drugs, I mostly go for the people. If the people I know and love that go there were to stop, I would likely stop.
  3. Pick one: the beach; the mountains; or the city.
    Mountains. I love the beach, but the beach is always the same. Mountains, you have meadows, forrests, glaciers, skiing, hiking, swimming. Cities, as much as I love all the activities, they seem so filled with negativity. There are the 0.001% of the population that you know and loves and supports you, but the rest want's your money, your parking spot, or you just out of the way. I think that's why few people living in a city will vacation to a city, unless there is something particular in that city they want to see/do (e.g., Disneyland).
  4. Do you believe in destiny? If not, why? If so, would you like to know yours or just let it unfold?
    I think this is sort of the freewill question I was asked before. Logically, I do not believe in freewill (there for everything we do is set in stone). But on an emotional level, I can not except that. So, no, I don't believe in destiny.
  5. If you could relive any one day of your life, which one would you choose? What would you do differently, if anything, and how would that affect the course of your life from then until now and beyond?
    I don't know. I don't think any one altered day would affect where I am now. All I can think of, is climbing the stone pillar over looking Macchu Pichu instead of looking at the utterly disappointing Incan bridge. Or several weekends I wanted to go camping, and no one else wanted to go. I should have just gone.

Now, to continue the chain, the stipulations:

  1. Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
  2. I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
  3. You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
  4. You'll include this explanation.
  5. You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

Questions from bohemianbabe:

  1. Do you know what Ryan means to me
    Ummm... A lot? :-)
  2. What do you think of rate me communities
    I dislike them. The people who sign up for them seem to be insecure, needing someone to tell them the look good. And the people who run them seem to have low selfesteem, and make themselves feel better by telling others they don't look good enough. Then, when the insecure get rejected, they go form their own rate-me community to take out their being rejected on others. But a few people are approved, and rather than LJ becoming one big happy love fest, you end up with a lot of fragmented cliches hyping how cool they are and how everyone else sucks. I see no good that comes from such communities.
  3. What is your view on abortion
    I am pro-abortion. In fact, there are few people who I favor post-natal abortion for... Basicly, I think that people are in their nature, sexual being. And either through accident (ripped condom), negigence (that one drunken evening where you forget protection), fate (the pill didn't work), or criminal activity (rape), and a woman does not want to have a child, or feel she can care for it, or it has massive birth defects, she should not be required to carry it to term.

    The world is hugely over populated, and through out the world there are more children up for adoption than are needed. We do not need to add to the list of unclaimed children world wide.

    Should a mother who does not have the means to care for her child have to keep it?

    Will a woman who did not want the child in the first place make the best mother, or will she resent the child? Possibly, she might make a great mother, but if she doesn't want the child, should she be forced to find out?

    If a child has massive birth defects, whole will care for the child when the parents pass on?

    I think that parents (mostly the woman) has the right to decide if she will have her body hugely changed by birth, and if she has the means and desire to have the child.
  4. What is you view on the current govener race in California
    Since I have moved out of California, I find it highly amusing, and watch it with great humor. But I do think that Bush and his refusal to help with the energy crisis created the problem (the reason he didn't helps, seems to be because California didn't vote for him), and yet the republicans are using the deficit thier leader creared as an excuse to run Davis out of office. If this succeed, I predict that the republicans will try to recall every democrat they can. Recalls and elections are very expensive, and do nothing to help the economy. I hope another democrat is elected, so it backfires on the republicans.
  5. If you could bring anyone back from the dead who would it be
    Einstien. I think he would have a lot to contribute to modern science, and he has the fame and morals to act as a conscience for science. Just look at all he did without computers. Just imagine what he could do with modern technology.
