Blog mom, Teresa, tagged me on the same day that blog sister, Irish Pixie got me (and others) with a "getting to know you" email. sheesh. So here goes...

1: Black and White or Color; how do you prefer your movies? I like both - some movies are great in black and white others in color.

2: What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death? celebrity gossip

3: MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favorite medium for prerecorded music? Since I got the MP3, that is my all time favorite.

4: You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going ... ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run? As long as I could share photos after I got back, sure. Hey, I don't have to tell anyone where I went to share the photos. *grin*

5: Seriously, what do you consider the world's most pressing issue now? I'm going to plead the 5th on this (you all really don't want my rant on the general stupidity of people, the total inability to think logically or analytically, and how that all affects things like the environment etc., etc., etc.)

6: How would you rectify the world's most pressing issue? Start over???

7: You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be? I'll leave my life as it's been.

8: You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be? There's a reason why all those sci-fi stories with time travel don't work out real well.

9: A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole' Opry --Which do you choose? Definitely the opera.

10: What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you'd like to solve? Ask me about unsolved math problems, please.

11: One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal? Choices, choices. Sagan, maybe Riemann, or Hawking. I'd have pizza delivered. I want to talk to these guys not waste time worrying about the dinner.

12: You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky -- what's the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact? Since I already agree with this statement and I'm not doing anything immoral, I don't need to celebrate.

I thought I'd try going after some relatively new people who will have no idea who I am
Blue Tige
and blog sister, Irish Pixie
and Sarah (cause I hear she's very nice and so will probably not come to my house and kill me)


Teresa said...

Excellent answers *grin* I can't believe you took on both of them the same day... although mine is MUCH shorter than Irish's.

First headache free day in a week so I'm on a roll. *grin*

Rave said...

K K K K K, I did it.

But don't think I won't remember this.... :)

Irishpixie said...

Shorter than mine? Ummmmm, I think it's time for an eye checkup. :-)

Off to see who I can tag now.

MathCogIdiocy said...

Irish - Shorter is relative or a place on the number line and a coffee cup is really a donut. *snork*

Rave - liked your answers, but me and my big dog are looking for a tin man, a scarecrow, a lion, a wizard, and a pair of red shoes. *grin*

Rave said...

Well, trust me, I have all of whom you seek living in MY house...AND we're in TORNADO alley to boot....

MathCogIdiocy said...

I think you're scaring me. *grin* Now where are those red shoes? Found 'em!

There's no place like NYC.

Tige said...

Well I checked my email (and missed this originally on your site, sorry) and now I'm here to say I've done this.
