    1977. What happened at that time?

    If you drove your Chevy to a levee, what state is that levee in?

    Alternatively, if you drove your Chevy to a Levee en Masse, what would you say when you met Napoleon? What if you met Robespierre? Marat? Hell, what if you met Murat?

    In that vein, do you agree with me that if, after the battle of Ligny, Napoleon had sent Ney after Blucher instead of Grouchy, he would have likely won Waterloo? Ney was always brash, and Grouchy too cautious, and Grouchy failed to press Blucher, and lost him, and Ney led an un-ordered cavalry charge that ended in complete destruction, losing Napoleon practically all his cavalry.

    If the Hindenburg hadn't burned, do you think we would still be having airship cruises over the atlantic? If not, do you WISH we would? Cause, y'know, airship cruises would be pretty sweet.

    Probably tell them all "Hi" and leave before all hell broke loose. >.>

    In that vein, do you agree with me that if, after the battle of Ligny, Napoleon had sent Ney after Blucher instead of Grouchy, he would have likely won Waterloo? Ney was always brash, and Grouchy too cautious, and Grouchy failed to press Blucher, and lost him, and Ney led an un-ordered cavalry charge that ended in complete destruction, losing Napoleon practically all his cavalry.
    While I may study a lot of war and history, sadly, Napoleon is one of my weak points, so I couldn't say.

    If the Hindenburg hadn't burned, do you think we would still be having airship cruises over the atlantic? If not, do you WISH we would? Cause, y'know, airship cruises would be pretty sweet.

    Yes, and Hell yes!

    She's my niece. Does there have to be any other reason?

    If you were sitting on the dock of the bay, what would you be doing while there?

    Why'd you pick what you did for your avatar?

    Is there anything about you that you think people should know that they won't get from just reading your posts?
    If so, what is it?

    Cuddly. Friendly.


    What is the square root of Pi?
    Mmmm.... pie.... *drools on the thread*

    What's your favorite OOTS strip?
    I love the background comments in #40. I like a lot of the early ones, mostly for the gags that rip on the rules.

    What's your favorite Erfworld strip?
    I only read the first handful of Erfworld strips, hated it, and never read another.

    How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
    Not quite sure what this question means... maybe I'm too tired after a long day...

    Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
    While I would love to tell you the large group, the answer is probably my most loved.

    What is your favorite word?
    I love all words. Probably comes from being a writer. But just to be nice, I'll give you two words: Onomatopoeia and defenestrate.

    What is your least favorite word?
    I really don't know if I have one. Every word serves a purpose.

    What makes you enthusiastic?
    My children.

    What disappoints you?
    My children. ;)

    What sound do you love?
    I think the sound of a child laughing is the most awesome sound in the world. Kids don't fake-laugh the way adults do. It's genuine and pure, and it's awesome.

    What sound do you hate?
    My alarm clock.

    What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
    I regularly think about teaching.

    What profession would you not like to participate in?
    Firefighter. I don't know about anybody else, but when a building is on fire I'm going to try to get out not in.

    (disclaimer: my father is a retired firefighter. I've heard too many stories.)

    What's your favourite place in the real world?
    Hmmm... At the risk of sounding too much like Dorothy, there's really no place like home.

    And not in the real world?
    Azeroth

    Favourite book?
    Hmmm.. I have a few.

    The Stand, by Steven King
    The Sleeping Dragon, by Joel Rosenberg
    Jhereg, by Steven Brust
    Hunt for Red October, by Tom Clancy
    Ten Little Indians, by Agatha Christie

    Favourite movie?
    I love all the Star Wars films, even the prequels that everybody else seems to hate. Some other favorites include (but not limited to): History of the World Part 1, Sneakers, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Bull Durham.

    Favourite TV serie?
    I don't watch much TV at all. About the only thing I watch currently (other than sports) is Mythbusters. Some past TV series that I've enjoyed include (but not limited to): The Sopranos, M*A*S*H, Cheers, Night Court.

    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
    Being a good father.

    3. Roses or orchids?
    Roses.

    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
    I'll be sounding a bit like a broken record, but my kids. Every day is interesting.

    5. How did you get to be so awesome?
    Other than my kids (who don't know any better yet), I'm not sure who says I'm awesome.

    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
    Hmmm... April of 2001... I was the new father of a 3 month old; I worked for a company that I expected to be at a long time (I was laid off in '03); I hadn't even given a thought to doing any sort of professional game design/freelance work.

    I'm not coming up with anything for the second part of your question, though. Sorry.

    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
    I've never really liked questions like this, to be honest. I would find it terribly boring to have only one other person that I could ever interact with. I mean, my first thought was to try to think of a hot chick, but that would get boring after a while (if it didn't kill me ;) ). Then I tried to think of somebody witty I could talk to, but eventually stories would become repeats and the conversations would become boring.

    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
    My great-great-great-great grandfather. For two reasons. First, to the best of my knowledge nobody has ever been able to trace the family tree back any further than him. I want to know more. Second, there's a family rumor that he came to America (it wasn't the United States yet, he arrived in the 1760's) because he and his brother killed a tax collector in Germany. I want to hear that story!

    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
    The only thing I care about is that people say, "He was a good father." Nothing else really matters to me.

    10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)
    Won't be any bonus points. But there's one of a white cat faceplanted into the arm of a sofa that makes a comment about Mondays. It always makes me laugh.

    11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
    Hmmm... a shrink ray, to make him small enough to squish like an ant on the sidewalk.

    12. Beards or babies?
    Who says the two are mutually exclusive?

    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
    I've made up plenty. Can't recall any off the top of my head, though.

    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
    The distinct sound made by my brain as it explodes trying to come up with witty and clever answers to questions...

    15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
    Nothing really stuck in my head at the moment.

    16. Favorite mythological monster?
    The Jersey Devil.

    17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?

    18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
    I'm too meek to have an arch-nemesis...

    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
    Serious.

    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
    I was bored...

    Favorite color?

    Favorite ice cream?
    butter pecan

    What is your theme song?

    What is the color of your aura?

    What does your essence taste like?
    Beer. :D

    What’s your elemental affinity?


    Who would you ask to the next Playground Prom, if we had one?
    I'm so shy I barely found dates for my real proms (which were over 20 years ago *cough*). I only got prom dates by asking friends. I don't know that I'd like to go through that sort of stress again...

    Are you part of any other online communities?
    I'm on Facebook. I post regularly on the Kobold Quarterly forums. I still post a bit over at Wizards. I'm "tech support" over at the gaming den (a buddy owns it, and he needs the help). That's about the extent, I guess.

    How often do you clean out your PM box?
    The PM I received reminding me about this is the 7th message in my box (including sent). I'll go delete that when I'm done with this reply.

    What fictional character do you most identify with?
    I don't. I mean, I don't ever watch a movie or read a book or whatever and say, "ZOMG! That's totally me!"

    Socks: Yes or no?
    If I'm wearing shoes, yes. (I hate sandals.) If I'm not wearing shoes and it's winter, probably but not always. If I'm not wearing shoes and it's any other time of year, probably not but sometimes.

    Quote Originally Posted by Savannah View Post

    Zherog was the name of one of my old 2nd edition D&D characters. When I got back into playing D&D when 3.0 launched, I decided to recycle the name (since the original Zherog didn't do much and so didn't have much of a history). When I registered for the WotC forums back in '01, I needed a screen name. Something or other glitched when I tried to use my first initial and last name, and so I needed a name and decided to use my character's name. I've been using it onlline ever since.

    And to explain the name itself... It's a bastardization of "Jhereg" - a novel by Steven Brust, and the name of a creature within that novel (and the rest of that series). I liked the look of it, but thought it needed to start with a Z sound instead. Then I didn't like the last syllable, and swapped the e for an o.

    Why'd you pick what you did for your avatar?
    Over on the WotC forums, my online persona at the time was very exaggerated as a flirt and a drinker of Guinness. (In fact, had I not found the Castle of Fun rp forum over on WotC, I likely would've been banned.) The character Zherog on the Castle of Fun drank copious amounts of Guinness in the bar. When I joined another message board (The Nifty Message Board) that had a lot of former WotC posters, I had the freedom to have any avatar, rather than the limited list WotC had at the time. I found a picture of a pint and used that. When I came here, I started with the same picture, and at some point many years ago Rawhide commissioned one of the avatarists to make my current avatar for me.

    I do like Guinness in real life. But I don't drink it nearly as much as my online persona did back then.

    Is there anything about you that you think people should know that they won't get from just reading your posts?
    If so, what is it?
    There's a lot to me that can't be gleaned from reading most of my posts. I suppose if somebody went to the trouble of reading everything I wrote online (here and elsewhere) they could learn that I'm a 40 year old father of 2 kids ages 10 and 9 who works a "day" job as a computer programmer for the world's largest generic drug manufacturer and works a "night" job as a freelance game designer. They'd know I coach soccer and basketball, have season tickets to the Philadelphia Union, that I'm a big Phillies and Flyers fan, and that I love playing games with my kids. That I'm a college grad who found college to be generally fun but useless in the grand scheme of things. And a lot more.

    Quote Originally Posted by wxdruid View Post

    hmmm.. As I said before, green is my favorite color. But I don't actually wear it often.

    I'm most comfortable in jeans and t-shirt (or shorts and t-shirt in the summer). For work, I typically wear either black or tan pants and a variety of shirts or sweaters that don't really favor one color.

    What do you like to collect?
    I have a very large baseball card collection, though I haven't purchased anything new in at least 7 years, maybe longer. I also seem to collect game books -despite how many I have, I keep buying more.

    How many avatars do you have?
    On this site? One. I have my original pint of Guinness that I use almost everywhere else, and on WotC I have an Elan avatar that Rich made for me way back before the comic was all that popular.

    Will you be attending GenCon?
    Yes! This will be my 9th consecutive year.

    What type of chocolate do you prefer?
    Dark chocolate.

    What type and how many pets do you have?
    I prefer dogs, but at the moment we have two cats.

    Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel?
    No. ;)

    I couldn't say that, so the question is moot. ;)

    Have you ever played the Elder Scrolls games? If yes, which one is your favourite?
    Never played.

    What genre of books are your favourite?
    I like... well, I like a lot really. I've read a lot of what gets classified as mystery and thriller. I wish I had time to read more, actually.

    Do you read often?
    Oh, hey look. I answered this (in part) in the previous answer. And that was without scrolling down, too.

    I read every day. I read a lot of reports and documents at work, I read the news, I read forums. I suspect, though, you meant whether I read for pleasure often. And the answer to that, sadly, is no. I read something before going to bed - typically a page or two or five of a book or magazine. I'm a very slow reader, and have a large backlog of stuff I want to read.

    What was the last book you finished?
    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

    What's your favourite book of all time?
    I've answered this above.

    Wow! I think I'm actually caught up - at least as of the time I logged in earlier. There's probably new stuff waiting for me....

    Up. It feels like making progress.

    Do you like radishes? If so, can you conclusively prove that you're a human being, cause I'm doubting it.
    To the first part, yes. To the second part, I don't recall ever claiming to be human. ;)

    What's it like being a parent, having others who depend on you for everything? I'm not one, so I'm curious.
    It is: Exhilarating and frightening; uplifting and depressing; energetic and exhausting. And a gajillion other adjectives. We're in a good stage right now (my kids are 10 and 9). They're largely independent for a lot of things, but still think my wife and I are awesome and they want to be around us and do things with us.

    I find myself sometimes saying things I swore I never would ("because I said so, that's why!") and doing things I never imagined (such as coaching soccer - until 3 years ago, the extent of my soccer knowledge was "don't use your hands.").

    I'm often amazed when I see my own life experiences all over again through their eyes. Things we old farts take for granted such as the smell of the flowers in spring and sound of birds singing after a rainstorm are new and exciting to them. And as a parent, if you open your mind a little bit, you can experience the newness of those things all over again. Another fun one is when they hear old songs or watch old movies you love. My daughter is a big Queen and Aerosmith fan; my son is a huge Star Wars fan. If I sit back and close my eyes, I can experience those things all over again.

    It's truly heartbreaking when they hurt, physically and emotionally. I'm learning that the physical hurts are probably easier. For example, my daughter recently was a silent victim of bullying in school. She also recently fell while riding her scooter and landed on her face. It was way easier to deal with the physical injuries (cuts and bruises only, thankfully) than the emotional ones -- especially that no matter what we say and do, she still felt she couldn't talk to us about it at first.

    It's uplifting when they do good. I mentioned previously we have two cats. One of those was a stray my son found and we took in. She was young when he found her, 6 to 9 months old. And she was likely dumped rather than wild, because she wasn't completely afraid of people. My son insisted we needed to save her, and when he learned that it was a bit expensive (we were going to get her fixed, and release her if she ended up being feral) he brought us his piggy bank.

    It's inspiring when their minds soar, unbound by limitations placed there by life's experiences. There's no reason, in their mind, why we can't put a colony on the moon or even Mars; there's no reason we can't use less and reduce waste; there's no reason we can't just teach people to stop abusing others. In their mind, there's no reason they can't become world-class musicians or soccer superstars or a doctor that cures cancer. Life truly has no limitations until you learn to place them there.

    It's mundane and droll and boring when day after day is a cycle of Time to get up for school/Do your homework/Get ready for karate or basketball or soccer/Do your music practice/eat your dinner/brush your teeth and get ready for bed/Good night and have sweet dreams. Routines come easily, and most of the time they're a good thing. But it's important to sometimes remember to break the routines.

    That's my short answer, anyway. ;)

    Black and tans, Y/N?
    Why isn't, "Hell yes!" a valid option?
