Assorted Formspring Questions pt. 10

Sometimes I answer the Formspring question of the day...most of the rest are anonymous. If you want a question answered for the next Assorted Formspring Blog, ask me a question.

What do you think the world will be like in 50 years?

Everything burns.

SeanPoindexter responded to Formspring

What movie are you most looking forward to seeing?

Thor and Conan the Barbarian.

Note: that's two different movies...though it would be awesome if it weren't.

Did you know Extreme Noise Terror are vegetarians &/or vegans? Apparently that's what that song 'Murder' has been about this whole time.

Are they even still around? Anyway, songs promoting vegetarianism aren't anything new, even by bands that aren't vegetarian. I read in an interview with Layne Staley that he wrote the lyrics to Man in the Box after having dinner with some vegetarian friends who described the living conditions of stock animals on corporate farms. Though Staley was not--to the best of my knowledge--a vegetarian, he found the it fascinating to imaging a human being dealing with those same conditions.

What do you do on Friday nights?

It depends, but I usually try to do something with my wife. If she's busy or has other plans, I either stay home and play Xbox or go out with my friends. Sometimes they come over here since most of my friends live with parents or room-mates and I have my own house. I've also got a nicer TV.

I'm not much of a bar person anymore. I don't like shelling out the money and, because of my health, I can't drink alcohol anymore. And most of the bars in this part of the country are packed with smokers--though Joplin is close to outlawing smoking in public establishments, which I'm all for. Yeah, yeah, shut up! How would you like it if I pissed on your clothes? Now imagine my piss causes cancer.

Sorry, got sidetracked there...

Anyhoo, since I don't bar hop or get plastered, I usually prefer a night with my friends. And sometimes I just want to stay home alone.

Do you use OpenOffice?

No. I use Word and MS Office.

Why doesn't spell check work on OpenOffice?

Probably because it's free.

If I ran out of an anti-depressant or other similar medication couldn't I eat the brain of someone that was on the same medication & it might tide me over in a pinch?

Yeah, that would work. Do that.

If you could be the president or leader of your country for one day, what would you do?

Have the following people shot: Glenn Beck, Karl Rove, Carrot Top, Fred Phelps, Nicholas Sparks, that rapping guy from the Rebecca Black video, Ann Coulter, All members of Lynard Skynard past, present and future; Simon Cowl, the "Dude, you're getting a Dell!" kid, Ron Paul, Jim Shinn, that guy who blew a grand at the Blackjack table next to me last weekend (you know who you are, you son of a bitch), Sean Hannity, Jared Loughner, Toby Keith, Ayn Rand (I know she's dead...dig her up and shoot her anyway), The Situation; Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, Rosie O'Donel, Snooki, that one dentist out of three who doesn't agree that Trident helps fight cavities, Charlie Sheen, Sarah Palin and that kid who knocked up Bristol Palin, the little black kid from the PSP commercials, Patricia Heaton, Rose McGowan's plastic surgeon, Muammar Gaddafi, whomever is trying to re-make They Live!, the live studio audience of Two and a Half Men...

This is a long list. It might be more expedient for me to just name the people I wouldn't have shot...

Do you believe in DNA?

Yes, Mr. O'Reilly.

Shouldn't Verminaard be the name of a guy that's always jamming rats & bugs onto his balls?

How do you know he wasn't?

If you could only drink one thing for a year and it couldn't be water, what would you drink?

(If you're brave you'll send this to all your followers). What's your honest opinion of me?

I don't know you very well, but you seem like a lovely person.

You can choose any two people, real or fictional, to watch having sex, for either comedic or erotic purposes, Which two and why?

Robocop and John Galt. Just think about it.

SeanPoindexter responded to destroytheearth

what's the youngest age a person could be for you to do these stuff with? sex- hook up- blow- go out-

I have a simple mathematical formula for this predicament: [(X/Y) + Z]/P = A

X = the height of the girl (in inches) multiplied it by the current age of my mother,

Y = the square root of my current weight

Z = my current age

P = the number of beers I've had (min = 1)

If A is < than age of consent, add 2 to A and repeat until A = or > local age of consent.

(If you're brave you'll send this to all your followers). What's your honest opinion of me?

Pretty awesome!

Why do women wait until you're JUST about to move on, then decide to pay attention to you again? Is there some, like, cocktease instinct?

One thing I think a lot of men forget is that women are human, too. And just like men, sometimes they like someone more on certain days than others. Yes, some women (and men, for that matter) enjoy playing with people's emotions by running one way then the other. But, more often than not, they have moods and emotions that lead to them wanting someone more on one day than they do on the next. Believe me, this is as irritating for the woman experiencing it as it is for the man at it's target. We all look for that perfect person, but people are complicated--we don't act the same every day. If you are dealing with this problem with a specific woman, the best thing you can do is to be as consistent with her as possible. If this means just walking away from the whole idea of a romantic relationship, so be it. When she sees that you can't be led around like a pony, she'll either a) lose interest, b) keep doing what she's doing with minimal results, or c) realize that she doesn't want to risk losing your company. Regardless, you'll get the result you want: that shit will stop.

On SGU when they have that archive uploaded to the ship from the planet of their descendants, if there were porn in there (& there probably is). Even though it's made by their great to the Nth degree grandchildren. Would that still be incest to fap to it?

I think it's only technically incest if you actually have sex with a family member. I don't really know: this isn't my area of expertise.

If someone had a brain damaging disease, like syphilis, prior to their infection with vampirism, would they still carry some of their altered neurology into their new form?

I'd say it would vary on the disease or damage. Vampires can regenerate brain tissue, but whether they can regrow brain tissue lost before they are turned is a difficult question. Since my books don't really deal with the vampires as much, it isn't something I've put much thought into.

Do you find it hard to write your books with other people around?

No, as long as I have on headphones and they aren't bothering me.

The Westboro Baptist Church has 71 members, last count. Unrelated, what kind of charge could someone get if they killed 71 people?

Multiple counts of 1st and 2nd degree homicide; unless you could convince the prosecutor or jury that all 71 of them attacked you at once and it was self-defense.

Do you ever listen to a particular band or genre when writing a certain kind of scene or passage? Like detailing a fight or something tragic?

Not in particular. I do listen to music while I write, but I don't have to have a certain kind playing. If you're interested in the kind of music I listen to while I write or edit, I have a twitter set up to post what I'm listening to as I work:
