I have no idea about maths - I went to a rubbish school ho provided a really poor education and wasn't allowed to take higher maths. Google calculator tells me that the cube root of 512 is 8 but that's cheating



I'm not that into the Beatles but I'd say 'A day in the life'



I can see 102 jellybeans - counting parts of jellybeans as a whole



do I win a jar of them? Are they vegan?

What do you think is the best thing that can be made from soybeans? Not like a meal, but soy milk/tofu/edamame etc.



What is the strangest dream you remember having?

Who is the person that most inspires you?



What do you want to be when you grow up? (sky is the limit)

I think Soy milk is the best thing that can be made - I prefer rice milk nowadays but soy milk enables people to substitute for cows milk and is really popular now. I never used to eat breakfast because I didn't like drinking cows milk - didnt have any breakfast for most of my life until I discovered soy milk.



The strangest dream I remember having? I've had a few recurring dreams which I always find fascinating. Also I've had a few where I've dreamed I'm falling and when I hit the ground I sort of jump myself awake in bed? I quite like that I think.



A few years ago when me and the wife were staying in a hotel I dreamed there was an evil baby in the minibar - that was scary I was apparently talking about it in my sleep. I used to sleepwalk a bit when I was younger and apparently told my parents I'd smasked the car up with a pan of socks.

I don't really have a single person that inspires me - I find sport inspiring in general; Usually I think tales of ordinary downtrodden people who make good are inspiring but I can't thnk of any offhand.



When I grow up I want to be able to spend lots of time with my family - Ideally I'd like to have a business that runs itself and I can live off the profits and have a good time. Unfortunately I have not got there but I'm still growing up.



I don't want my kids to follow the same paths that I did. I wish I'd done something like 'Politics, Philosophy and Economics' at uni but I ended up doing a more vocational degree which assured me of a job rather than a 'floury degree'

If you were an animal, what kind would you be?



If you were given £1,000 and told you had to spend it within an hour, what would you do with it?

If you could only have one item from each of the food groups for the rest of your life what would you choose and why?

I'd like to be a tiger but I'm too docile so I'd probably be a sloth or something - I'm very risk averse, not an adrenaline junkie, I'd rather cuddle up and watch telly.



I could spend £1,000 on CD's in a lot less than an hour, same with books - I have wishlists a mile long programmed into my phone so there would be no time wasted - just let me know when the money's in my bank and the time's started.

Hmmm, I'll need to google to see what I can choose here . . . I'll use the Vegan Food Pyramid (http://www.veganfoodpyramid.com)



Veggies - Brocolli - Self explanatory, it is lovely



Fruit - Mango, yummy but a bugger to prepare



Whole grains etc - Noodles - I don't see why I would need much else;



Fortified Dairy Substitutes - Soya Custard - I could drink this by the carton



Legumes etc - tofu comes in here so I'll take that



At the top - nuts, a bit generic but I love to nibble on nuts . . . .

Didn't I already do this? I don't know who I admire tbh, I can see the faults in everyone. Can I say Muhammad Ali which might be a bit of a cop out but I do admire how he was prepared to put his entire career and life on hold for his principles.



Alcohol - Cider probably, Westons is nice (and vegan). I quite like a whisky for my spirit but if I'm out and about I'm a G&T man . . .

I reckon the Tories are more or less in which might be a shame, I don't think Goggsy has done much wrong but I think changing governments every now and again is a good thing - Labour have been in too long and Tony just turned them into an evil bunch of lying crooks.



I do support devolution and I think Scotland would be better off as an independent nation but I don't think Westminster will let it happen until the oil is more or less gone, then we're fecked anyway. I'd like to see Scotland given more devolved powers in the short term. Independence would be difficult to achieve for lots of reasons but I'm all for it - you can keep the Queen.

Earth - I love nature, love being in the hills and the countryside. I'm not a firey person and I don't like too much water. I aint airy fairy either.



I just googled a test which confirms I am earthy too!

Fawlty Towers rocks.



Have you ever met anybody just like Basil Fawlty?



Marooned on a deserted island - which particular CDs do you own that would keep you going until you were rescued?

No, thank god I have not met anyone like Basil Fawlty although it's nice to have characters. I once stayed in a B&B with a workmate and we were convined the owner was a serial killer - he kept alluding to his wife, who we never saw and he was barred from all the shops and bars in the village . . .



Desert Island CDs - That's a hard one, I'd have to have an array of different types to suit my different moods. I don't want to be all Alan Partridge with the old 'greatest hits' but maybe Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan 'compilations'. Ride the Lightning by Metallica for heaviness, No angel by Dido for chilling, the Holy Bible or Generation Terrorists by the manics . . melancholy and the infinite sadness maybe.



I'd have to get rescued soon though - I don't like to stick with the same music for long . . .

Thanks The Lurker (or maybe former lurker? )



This week's interview will be up soon...there's a bit of a delay.

The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol
