I know a great number of highly-educated yet unemployed US citizens who blame their government and society for all of their woes, and want to move to Canada where they can not work and get free health care just for being alive. Where shall I put them?

1. Describe yourself in 5 adjectives.<br><br><br><br>
2. Is there a political cause (apart from veg*nism/AW/AR) you particularly care about or identify with?<br><br><br><br>
3. What movie has affected you the most?<br><br><br><br>
4. What's your favorite mattress flying at you 500 mph?<br><br><br><br>
5. If you were on a stranded island and could take only one record with you, who is your favorite comedian beginning with 'm'?<br><br><br><br>
6. From all the things in your life th<br><br><br><br>
7. Together with Alfred the Great, Henry is traditionally called one of the founders of the Royal Navy. There are good reasons for this - his reign featured some naval warfare and, more significantly, large royal investment in shipbuilding (including a few spectacular 'great ships' such as the Mary Rose), dockyards (such as HMNB Portsmouth) and naval innovations (eg the use of cannon onboard ship - although archers were still deployed on medieval-style forecastles and bowcastles as the ship's primary armament on large ships, or co-armament where cannon were used). However, it is a misnomer since Henry did not bequeath to his immediate successors a 'navy' in the sense of a formalised organisation with structures, ranks, formalised munitioning structures etc, but only in the sense of a set of ships (albeit some spectacular ones).<br><br><br><br>
8. What do you find the most important aspect of the fir<br><br><br><br>
9. Didn't you say that they never went there to begin with (and what did he say about it with such fiendish fervor), so would you have shown them the way covered in dry leaves and illuminated by the faint lanterns?<br><br><br><br>
10. Do you feel VB interviews are more about the interviewer showing his/her perceived wittiness than getting to know the interviewee?

Question limit: <span style="color:#0000FF;">I don't care, just keep 'em short. I am genetically predisposed to ignore large blocks of type on internet forums written by people who don't know the meaning of the words "paragraph" and "return key".</span><br><br><br><br>
Gender: <span style="color:#0000FF;">XY</span><br><br><br><br>
Birthday: <span style="color:#0000FF;">May 3, 1970</span><br><br><br><br>
Age: <span style="color:#0000FF;">See birthday (above); do math.</span><br><br><br><br>
Location: <span style="color:#0000FF;">Where I am is where I'm at.</span><br><br><br><br>
Dietary Path/Reason Why: <span style="color:#0000FF;">It's the right thing to do and a tasty way to do it.</span><br><br><br><br>
Fave food: <span style="color:#0000FF;">Piping hot gazpacho soup.</span><br><br><br><br>
Brief intro: <span style="color:#0000FF;">There is not much I wish to reveal about my personality or life for fear of looking really uninteresting and downright boring. I'd rather hold back let you use your imaginations to find me mysterious and curiously complex, if not altogether irritating. I like toast, puppets, and getting free gifts with magazine subscriptions. I like short walks on long beaches, nonrhyming couplets, and that feeling you get when you sit on a seat that a complete stranger has just warmed up.<br><br></span><br><br>
Picture: <a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v689/zorg-industries/22955450abefb121b5.gif" target="_blank"><span style="color:#0000FF;">This is a picture, albeit a moving one.</span></a><br><br><br><br>
Website: <a href="http://web.qx.net/lhaddix/htoad.htm" target="_blank"><span style="color:#0000FF;">You might want to turn your sound way up for this one. It is work friendly.</span></a>

What is the strangest thing you have ever seen in RL?<br><br><br><br><span>Probably the one time I was riding my bike down some local trails that cut through an industrial section. It was there that I saw a man and a woman in their mid- to late 40sshe with her pants down bent over a VW bug, he with his pants down loving her from behindall this from no more than twenty feet away. And they just continued on with less shame than you would expect from a couple of dogs rutting in the park.<br><br><br><br>
What made it worse is that I was alone and had nobody to make a punch-buggy joke with.<br><br></span><br><br><br><br>
Do you ever pick your nose?<br><br><br><br><span>Only in my car where no one can see me.<br><br></span><br><br><br><br>
What are the similarities and differences between hogtown and cowtown?<br><br><br><br><span>Can you use either of them in Scrabble?<br><br></span><br><br><br><br>
What is the meaning of life?<br><br><br><br><span>Some would suggest you live like you were dying, but in my experience people who know they are dying are downright miserable and seldom have much fun with it. So I suggest you live like you were living. I don't know. If you ask me we're all alone in a godless universe with just the beer light to guide us.</span>

What's the first concert you ever saw?<br><br><br><br><span>With my dad because I begged him to take me, Rush on their Signals tour. Sometimes, when a Rush song comes on the radio late at night and I close my eyes, I can still smell the pot.<br><br><br><br>
On my own I saw General Public at Massey Hall for my 14th birthday. It was great and all but I'd've given my left nut to see The English Beat.</span><br><br><br><br><br><br>
What's the first CD you bought?<br><br><br><br><span>I'm going to super-size my answer, no charge:<br><br><br><br><b>First vinyl album:</b> The Police: Outlandos d'Amour<br><br><br><br><b>First 45:</b> Jon and Vangelis: Friends of Mr. Cairo<br><br><br><br><b>First CD:</b> Love & Rockets: Express<br><br><br><br><b>First MP3 download:</b> Styx: Mr Roboto<br><br><br><br><b>First MP3 deleted from my hard drive:</b> Styx: Mr Roboto<br><br></span><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
What's the last concert you attended?<br><br><span><br><br>
I went to the Virgin Music Festival last September mostly to see Wolfmother and pay $4 for their wide selection of two beers: Bud and Bud Lite.<br><br><br><br>
But as flawlessly as the Aussie trio rocked, I don't think corporate sponsored outdoor festivals should be considered proper concerts.<br><br><br><br>
So I would say it was Hawksley Workman at Massey Hall in late July. He did a stripped down set just him, a guitar (or four) and a guy on a piano and it was easily one of the best (and, rather surprisingly, funniest) concerts I have ever seen. But that is probably only because Disturbed cancelled their Toronto show, and the London (Ontario) and Montreal shows were sold out by then. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:"><br><br></span><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Have you ever bought and extended disco remix of anything?<br><br><br><br><span>No. But I downloaded the Scissors Sisters version of Comfortably Numb once just because I thought it would annoy my friend Dave. (It did.)</span><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Do you sit up front with a hand full of ones, or sit in the back and keep the tips for yourself?<br><br><br><br><span>I just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show Mack Daddy style. I hate the guys who put bills in their mouths and lay on their backs on stage. I don't know who I feel more sorry for. Any guy who would do that. Or the woman who would degrade herself like that for a mere fiver.</span><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I know a great number of highly-educated yet unemployed US citizens who blame their government and society for all of their woes, and want to move to Canada where they can not work and get free health care just for being alive. Where shall I put them?<br><br><span><br><br>
Prison.</span>

<b>What's your favorite beer?</b><br><br><br><br>
It changes all the time as I try new beers and get sick of old beers.<br><br><br><br>
Currently, for no real reason, my beer tastes are incredibly patriotic: Cameron's Aubern Ale, Sleeman Fine Porter, J.P. Brickman's Pilsner (The J.P.B. Amber is good too).<br><br><br><br>
In the summer I enjoy Grolsch Blond and/or Amseterdam Blond.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>What beer are you dying to try?<br><br></b><br><br>
Dogfish Head's Punkin Ale. Have you heard of it? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
I'm trying to find <i>anything</i> even remotely Dogfishy here in Canada, but five liquor stores and two unanswered emails to the LCBO later...nada.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>What do you think is the #1 misconception about beer?<br><br></b><br><br>
That low carb beer was a good idea.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>If you were floating in a raft in the ocean, and the ocean were made of beer, where would you pee?<br><br></b><br><br>
It depends on what kind of beer it was. If it was an ocean of Heinken then it already tasted like wee.

<b>Have you ever lost your swim trunks when swimming?<br><br></b><br><br>
No. But I once, at the age of about six or seven, tried to poop in a lake with disastrous results.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>Have you ever swallowed your chewing gum?<br><br></b><br><br>
No. I don't swallow.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>Did your chewing gum ever lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?<br><br></b><br><br>
If I so much as suspect that my gum is even <i>thinking</i> about losing flavour, I spit it out and start a new piece. So, no. Final answer.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>Did you ever see your mommy kiss Santa Claus?<br><br></b><br><br>
No.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>Do you ever nibble on pencils?<br><br></b><br><br>
These lips do not touch wood.<br><br><br><br><br><br><b>Did you ever get a staple stuck in your finger?<br><br></b><br><br>
Yes. (True story.)
