read more than speak, would be a fair assessment. I don't find it very intuitive though.

100. What's the fastest you have driven in a car?

I don't have a licence so I've never driven very fast (instructors won't let you :D) I love being driven though, and I love being driven fast. Fastest a car was moving with me in it was 230kmh, on a japanese highway. A friend was taking me to Fukushima to see some caves. The road was perfect and empty, so he just stepped on the gas... I slept through most of the ride though. It was amazing how you couldn't feel the speed - good car + good road, you'd never know it was going that fast if the meter wasn't showing it... doing 70kmh in a Yugo feels faster and more dangerous :D
Quote:
101. If you could have the ability to time-travel, would you?

Of course. Everywhere. Constantly. In fact I'd probably keep tampering with it till I messed up the spacetime continuum and undid the Big Bang or something.
Quote:
102. If you could have any superpower? (time travel would be mine)

well since I got time travel as part of the previous question... :D Being invisible would be wicked. Also superhuman strength and speed could be put to some very creative uses........ mind reading would be handy, but ultimately depressing. nobody ever thinks anything nice.....
Quote:
103. (Beer and Pizza) or (Wine and Cheese) ... ? (with that question's set up you can see that I do a bit of programming ... lol)

hmmm.. Champagne and Blueberries? also Champagne, Tiger Prawns and Avocado. That's really perfect. Especially while in a jacuzzi.

In a binary choice between the two offered, Wine and Cheese. I'm not fond of either beer or wine, but I prefer wine to beer, and I prefer white wine to red. I like pizza though :D And adore almost all types of cheese.

104. You wake up to find all the keys on your keyboard have been swapped around, will you still be able to type ... ?

yeah I never look at the keyboard anyways.

105. Do girls fart? (This is an argument that we always have when we go away for a weekend in the early hours of the morning.)

Of course they do. Just not as obviously - or with as much relish - as the boys. You've probably never heard one do it, and you probably never will - but I assure you they do. It's a physiological inevitability :D (I don't, of course. I'm unique that way.)

Anyhow I'm guessing that's actually 'paste what you copied last'? Well here goes:
106. Copy what you pasted last.
107. What (if anything) are you afraid of?
108. What did your wedding look like?
109. Tell a joke ...

Quote:

Roaches, giant grasshoppers, big fat bugs. Not spiders, not scorpions, not snakes, not lizards. But big bugs gross me out.

108. What did your wedding look like?

like this:
Image
There's a few more shots online that you can see here.
It was held in the botanical garden so everything was quite green and lovely. There was a string quartet playing Strauss' waltzes and there were square glass bowls of giant juicy red cherries on ice and cocktails and food I never got to taste cuz I was running around so much but people were coming up to me for weeks afterwards to say 'I loved your wedding, the food was AMAZING!!' so I was really sorry i never tried it... the catering guys were great, I asked them to make everything as unusual as possible, and they really came up with some very creative combinations...
Quote:
109. Tell a joke ...

A rabbit is walking through the jungle and suddenly he looks up and spots the elephant sitting up in a tree.
so the rabbit asks him 'elephant elephant, what are you doing so high up in that tree?'
and the elephant says 'eating cherries!'
rabbit: 'But you're sitting in a walnut tree!!?'
elephant: 'I brought cherries.'
Quote:
110. Favorite chocolate?

Richart of Paris. Expensive as sin but my god I've never tasted anything like it. They've got amazing flavors like curry chocolate, kumquat chocolate, jasmine tea chocolate, anise & fennel, cinnamon, rose, ginger, redcurrant, lemon grass... they really taste amazing. Sadly the only shops in europe are in paris and milan.

111. Did you know that in cricket the number '111' is also called a Nelson?

nope. in fact I don't know anything about cricket except that is is a little bit like baseball except with many more convoluted rules which I can't understand. Plus there's gotta be something wrong with a sport in which a match lasts for five days, right? And they have a break for lunch and a break for tea!!???
Quote:
112. Make up a limerick about Post-it notes.

To take an affair and just roast it,
nothing says it like a post-it.
you could write him a letter,
but only one thing is better -
break up with the guy with a post-it!
Quote:
112b. Can you all give her a break?

I know this one is not for me but just for the record - bring it on. no mercy required.... :D
Quote:
113. folded or crumpled?

folded in spirit, crumpled in practice.
Quote:
114. Media Player or Winamp?

media player, I must confess. there's something about winamp that unnerves me, on a completely irrational level.
Quote:
115. Quick reply or advanced reply?

mostly quick, if i'm not excessively quoting or inserting or whatever.....
Quote:
116. 1 or 2 screens connected to your PC?

one 20" computer screen and one big-a** 36" tv.

You know, for the longest time I thought you were Scottish. I kept processing your screen name as some corruption of Caledonian. :lol: So, I'm glad to get at least one moniker correct.

ha ha ha :D do I seriously come off as Scottish? Celandine is a proper female name, originally Greek (just like Lidia) - and also a name of a little yellow wild flower... I don't know many traditional Scottish names, but Irish names can be quite beautiful - my friend Deirdre taught me a few a long time ago and I can't remember them now and I hate myself for it!! Kayleigh is also a really wicked name, but that I think is English.....

eh :scratchhead: Is this some sort of weird intellectual joke :?:

Quote:
In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem (American English) or Pythagoras' theorem (British English) is a relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle. The theorem is named after the Greek mathematician Pythagoras, who by tradition is credited with its discovery and proof,[1] although knowledge of the theorem almost certainly predates him. The theorem is as follows:


You'd go to a party dressed as ... errrrm ... a thingy :?: Really :?: :shock: What's wrong with Penguin Parrot or maybe a Poo :?:

thanks :D yeah it was nice. I'm not too keen on weddings - in fact I probably would have happily missed my own if my attendance wasn't a pretty basic requirement.... but it did turn out a pretty cool event in the end.

ha ha ha yeah I guess you could call it that... I guess I was just trying to give a reply that would qualify as thinking outside the box. or, in this case, triangle. :D
