merci Flavah, bon tant pis j'assume le résultat :-) :

warning : if you understand the following answers, please don't take the road..

1. Tell us how you came across OZZU.

Well that was 2 years ago, when American government and French government weren’t agree very well, G.W.B was being ré-elected, and I was interesting in submersing inside American people.
In fact, I found divides about society and international questions not very far from what I know here.

So, how did I come here? I just tried to re-enact my google search but unfortunately I couldn’t.
All I just can say is thx google.


2. Where in France is Nimes?

Do I need to tell you? northeast , 30 miles, far from Montpellier of course.

… Ok Nîmes is a little “gallo-romaine” town (about 150 000 inhabitants) in the south of France just near the Mediterranean Sea.


3. Do you work for the private or public sector?
I work in the private sector, in a mobile marketing agency as a developer.

4. When did you learn English?
Thx for noticing, at school, and the rest on Ozzu :-)

5. Have you travelled outside Europe?
No, I went 3 days in Spain, one day in Belgium and Half an hour in Suisse and that’s all.

6. Your profile states you like the piano, do you play the piano?
Well, is there a less affirmative verb than “play”?
In fact yeah I’ve got a piano and I play a little bit only classical music but I’m very lazy.

7. How many hours a day do you spend on Ozzu?
On some busy days I don’t even spend a minute; in fact I would need some 48hrs days.
Sometimes I’ve got a little more time, most of time I try to follow some discussions but when I decide to take the time to post a message it can increase pretty much my average !

8. Who is your hero?
J.S.Bach

9. Finish this sentence "My life's motto is..."
A Honda CBR 1000 … no my English is not so bad.

Well I will say "convictions might be more dangerous enemies of truth than lies” Nietzsche

But if I have to answer tomorrow, I probably would say something else.

10. What other languages do you speak besides English & Français?
Tambien hablo un poco español.

11. How often do you change your bathroom towels?
Well, it’s a variable data based on 2 parameters :
-The count of towels I own in my studio.
-The count of days between 2 visits at mum’s.

12. Do you have a good relationship with your parents?
Excellent! (see #11).

13. Would you rather kiss a jellyfish or step on a crab?
Can I choose witch one to step on? I’d rather step on the … splouitch !!!

14. What accomplishment(s) are you most proud of?
I would probably link this question with #23.

15. What are some of your favorite movies?
Taxi driver, le déclin de l’empire américain + les invasions barbares (hi Flavah),etc.
putting ones rather than other makes no sense, I don’t have favorite ones.

16. Guilty pleasures & bad habits (cigarettes, gum, candy, etc) Give us the dirt!
Give someone the dirt?

17. What did you do last weekend?
Went to mum’s, barbecue.

18. Any useless talents? (double jointed, tongue can touch nose, great animal noises imitations, etc)
Nope, perhaps things related with piano, left hand and right hand disconnected euh … independent with one an other … arggh how could you say?


19. Do you own a car? If so what kind?
Yeah, a Nissan Micra
http://www1.autoalanverkkopalvelu.fi/mediakone/aineistot/22/nissan_micra.jpg


20. What are you most afraid of?
Man


21. What is your favorite time of day?
My favourite time is when I wake up at the time to stand up, but I realise it’s not a working day. So I sleep again.
I would make ring an alarm just to make me feel this delicious moment of lucidity.

22. Pets?
A white cat, named Maurice.

23. If you could choose another career, which would it be and why?
In fact I answer myself this question 4 years ago, I told to myself there were 30 years of careers left to me, was I going to spend them asking me “why didn’t I choose this?”.
I started a new life in computing developing, started from zero with vocational education, and I love my job now.

24. Name 5 things that irritate you (pet peeves)

-piano
-athletics middle-distance and long distance running

26. Who would you like to see as the next GTKY victim? (please make sure to pick someone who frequents the site often.)
I took a look to the past GTKYed, and Roarmerow and also my whistleblower Joebert have been already picked :-).
Well just a little more time …

27. Do you have any favorite musicians/bands?
First of all, See #8
Then some others classical Artists
I also like 70s rock music too, Janis Joplin, Hendrix, Jefferson airplane, deep purple, led zep, Canned Heat, Soft Machine ..

28. Anything exciting to share with us?
#8

Juan, coge la jaula de pajaros y bajala al jardin de joaquim

And also :

Les chaussettes de l’archi duchesse sont elles sèches archi sèches ?

34. Have you done much traveling in your lifetime?
I’d rather say not enough.

I think nothing is really something.

37. how's the weather in nimes in january?

I enjoyed reading those questions. I have always been a fan of the way in which you have picked up English in the last 2 years.

You understood most of the questions there, you should be proud.

hi Meman,

68. Have you ever said "Sacré bleu!" and made a monocle pop out?
Lol no never, so far.

69. What does "Sacré bleu!" mean?
It’s a very archaic expression, a kind of old fashion curse, no one uses it.
I just made a research because I had no idea of the origin.
It’s like, “par le sacre de Dieu”, or “God damned!” but “bleu” had replaced “Dieu” (God).

70. Do you see the channel tunnel as a French creation, an English creation or a Joint creation?
In fact I never ask myself this question and this is the first time I see it mentioned. Well I would say it’s a joint creation.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_Tunnel

71. Should French lessons be mandatory in English schools?
Why should they be? I don’t think so.
I think English is the most universal language and everyone should be able to choose additional languages.

72. I heard a rumor that when the French government started using wheel clamps to penalize motorists who park in restricted areas the French people went around putting super glue in the wheel clamp locks, Even if the clamp wasn't on their car, as a protest against them. Is this true?
Lol, Never heard about this!

73. Have you ever been arrested?
No

74. What do you think is better? To go to prison for something you believe in, Or stay free and not try to make a difference.
I think it would be easy to tell first of course, but I confirm it, I’m not posting from a jail :-)
Probably because, in a democracy, there are no many symbolic reasons to go to prison.
Here in France, we’ve got an “alter-mondialist” called José Bové, who went to jail, for vandalism on economic symbols like Mc Donalds or genetically modified cornfield.

75. Ever stolen anything?
Yes, when I was kid, I’m not able to steal anything right now.

76. Favourite Programming Language (if any)
I work most of time with PHP at my job, but I think the best of the best, the super league of programming is C++, it is based on C a great language, a kind of macro assembly(I love assembly too, it’s great to see how do languages work in the CPU and the RAM), and OOP added. The unique real OOP language, Most of the OS are made with at least 80% C/C++.

Unfortunately it’s a long time since I last used it.

77. Vegetables or Fruits?
Both.

78. Explain what is your favourite (video) game without using the letter S!
Oulipotage ?
I love AOE and AOM, I love a game with a context referring to antiquity and mythology. I only like gaming while I can learn and get back to an old time.

Tssssssss ! 8-)


79. what is your favorite book
I will say : “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”
Well it can be strange but I’m very interested in left-hand filiations of Nietzsche works. In fact I don’t really agree to say that "left-hand Nietzscheism" should be an oxymoron :-)
By the way this book above is the top of his works to me.


80.What do you think of john mayer, or john mayer trio
In fact I had to make a little search, to see who was John Mayer.
I think he is too contemporary for me so that I could know about him and give an opinion.
You see, I know much better classical music times and 70s :-)

LOL I've also heard "Sacré français!" though I think that's also an old expression. I last heard it in a house song by dj dimitri from paris.

Very interesting answers. It's been a pleasure learning about you! Your car is so cute! I haven't heard someone mention a Micra in forever!
