By definition, I use "a set or established belief or principle" to describe dogma which is the name I ultimately decided to give to my favorite character I've ever invented. Dogma, as shown in my avatar, is basically the embodiment of neutrality and justice that roams the world mercilessly erasing all of the corruption in the world by liberating animals, destroying religions, collapsing governments etc, etc... He's androgynous (neither male nor female), but I refer to him as "he" simply because he's the evolution of a once psychotic male character (the converse of the new character I'm developing who's similar in nature, but originally female). Dogma's essentially a super strong, super fast, hyper intelligent inhuman superhero who stars in the game I'm developing.
Most people think my name represents the movie of the same title, though I've only ever seen a couple minutes of it and haven't been interested. Others think that because my username is Dogma, I must be innately religious if not Roman Catholic. This couldn't be further from the truth. Only 10% of people think it references the Yu-Gi-Oh! card, Destiny Hero, Dogma which is only vaguely accurate in that that's where I first found the word being used as a name and liked it.
</wall o' text>Have you ever met anyone famous?
Don't think so. I'm not really interested in celebrities, let alone meeting them. I'm more interested in the people who remarkably aren't
as popular as they deserve to be.Do you live with any companion animals?
Not right now, however in the past I've lived with, counting backwards, 2 chinchillas, 8 ferrets, 1000s of seahorses, 2 shrimp, 4 fish, 3 dogs, 3 parrots, 9 cats, and a hamster.
If I could choose any animal to take care of right now, I'd say an iguana. Firstly because they're cool and underappreciated and secondly because I know them to be natural vegans.Do you live with any companion humans?
No one I'm willing to openly admit I still tolerate. >_>Where is your favorite place that you have visited?
Akihabara (Akiba, or Denki Gai ("Electric Town")) in Tokyo, Japan. It felt really surreal to step into the origin of cyberpunk fiction (let alone a foreign non-English speaking country). Akihabara had no shortage of electronics, anime and manga either. To this day I maintain that I enjoyed it more than my trip to Disney World. And that's saying a lot considering it was raining a lot while I was in Japan and I hardly bought anything.What do you enjoy most about being veg*n?
I guess the slight fuzzy feeling of sanity in my consciousness. Beyond that, it mostly serves to burn a painfully sharp contrast in my mind with everyone else around me.With whom would you most love to have dinner?
I guess my Finland penpal. Don't really care if it were dinner or not. A waffle in a dry cleaning room would do.Do you have any secret talents?
Secret? Eh... I kind of like surprising people with my gaming skills. Multiple times I've picked up games I didn't own and had played very little of, but did incredibly well in (I think I just formulate strategies a lot faster). I got really good at Soul Calibur 2 really quick and I still remember picking up a controller at a friends house one day to play some Halo 2 and lobbing a plasma grenade into his face from all of the way across the map. My friends get sick of playing against me frequently, especially with games I actually own.What dish/recipe can you make that knocks people's socks off?
Uhhh... I really like the burritos I've made, but it's like, 3 ingredients plus a microwave. O_oWhat's your favorite restaurant?
Can't think of one that doesn't serve meat.What do you do to cheer yourself up when you're feeling blue?
Hmm... depends. Usually I just put on some music and do something shallow and absorbing, like game grinding or watching TV.What's your biggest cooking/baking disaster?
Back in middle school, I think, I had a cooking class and I got paired with the jocks. They were convinced that of all of the options we could have made, we had to make banana pudding. Not only was it poorly made, but the bananas were brown, mushy and rotten when we got them and someone may have mentioned that they had found them in the trash somewhere.
I don't even like bananas all that much to begin with.What's the one food/product, that you'd love to "veg*nize"?
Cheese without a 4$ pricetag. Though to be more specific, I would relish a vegan ravioli and vegan pineapple pizza calzone.
