20 Questions Tuesday 6:

Here we are with 20 Questions Tuesday part 6. Today’s questioners are Dustin, Der Kieselbach, ACW, Kim, Wifey, and the Anonymous poster from Thursday’s post. Without further ado, the questions…

1. Why are Vanilla Frosties the devil?
Because they are ever so tempting…

2. Is it wrong to take pictures you find on the web that were created by other people, download them, and then alter them with Photoshop for your own personal benefit?
Firstly, if “own personal benefit” is defined as “monetary profit,” for shame! When one “steals” (uses without permission) images from the Internet, one should credit the source of the original image. If the original author of the image asks you to remove the image, you should also do that as quickly as possible.

3. Why do some people insist in this day and age that they still don't need cell phones?
I am not convinced that all people do really need cell phones. That being said, I do think that most people could benefit from having them, or if they have them, making sure they are charged and on.

4. Why are cats wonderful?
Cat’s are wonderful because cat owners know that any and all affection from cat to person is because the cat has deemed the person worthy of affection. Cats do not need people (they knead people, but that is a different story), and that independence is what makes them wonderful. People who dislike cats dislike the fat that they are not necessary to the cats.

5. Why do people always say "I wish I hard curly hair" when they have no idea how much trouble it is to maintain?
Grass is always greener. I remember as a kid wanting straight hair so I could rock the feathered bangs, like that blonde shark-jumping replacement guy had on the last couple of seasons on CHiPs.

6. Knowing your distaste for hippos I have to ask, have you ever seen Kozo the dancing hippo?
Sadly, Yes.

7. What are the odds that the vanilla frosty is here to stay?
Pretty good. I have heard of other regions having them as well as Central Ohio. So far Northern Virginia, Michigan and a couple other places have the delicacy as well. Hopefully they will not make this one of those “suck you in and leave you hanging” limited time offers.

8. How long will it be until Little Man is asking to go back to Chicago to see his trains again?
I am not sure he will ask about Chicago again. He has multiple train DVD’s that he enjoys watching over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

9. After seeing a trailer for a movie where a comedian runs for president and wins, do you think there is a comedian out there who could handle the job?
I think there are many people out there who are imminently qualified to be President of the United States. That being said, I do not think that there is any comedian out there who has the political connections to get anything to work in the government. Do I think there are some comedians out there who could win via their popularity? Most definitely. Would they be good presidents? Heck no. Who would I like to see as President? Bobcat Goldthwait.

10. Which do you think gave a more accurate representation of the sport it makes fun of: Talledega Nights or Dodgeball?

11. Are kids like gases? No matter how much time you give them they still take the full amount of time to get ready.
Kid’s are like gasses in many many ways. No matter how much you give them, they can always take more. No matter how much space you have for them, they fill it up completely. It is amazing especially when you think about how small young kids are…

12. If you were one of the seven dwarfs, which one would you be?
Was Sarcastic one of the dwarves? If not, I think I would be Snarky.

13. Why are gouchos popular right now? I mean, they only make women look shorter and wider.
Fashion these days is not about making the body look better. There are soooo many fashion trends out there right now that accentuate the wrong aspects of people’s figures it is disturbing. The really bad thing is that these fashions are being recycled from previous trends. More specifically, Gouchos typically hit women at the wrong part of their leg so it shortens them, and since they are usually short-waisted and flair at the bottom, they lengthen the torso and highlight the width of the woman’s hips. These pants force people to focus almost exclusively on places that women typically do not want others to focus. Ladies, when a pant makes a mannequin look hippy, this is not a good style for you.

14. What was the last book you read?
Trickster’s Queen by Tamora Peirce

15. What addictive element do you think McDonald’s uses in their French fries?

16. What’s the best age to get married?
For me, it was 23.

17. What’s the best age to get divorced?
I do not think it is so much an age as a time frame. That being defined by as soon as you know that your relationship is irrepairable.

18. If you buy life insurance, aren’t you just a pessimist?
More of a realist, I would say. We are, by definition ephemeral beings. We do not live forever and therefore it is only prudent to take measures that could potentially help those left in the wake of one’s passing

19. If you don’t buy life insurance, aren’t you just a frivolous freak who deserves what happens to you and your family?
No, people who don’t buy life insurance are optimists.

20. Do you remember sleeping at all?
Interesting question. Now I know that it was originally posed to add doubt in my mind about the whereabouts of my wife whilst I slept in Traverse City, but I am going to respond to it in a much more general sense. The whole point of sleeping is to let your mind rest and recuperate. So in answer to your question, “No, I do not remember sleeping, but I do remember that I did sleep.” For the record, I slept in front of the inwardly opening door just making sure that Wifey did not go “meet” you on our vacation.
