Which item in your wardrobe would shock the fashion police? Do you wear it in public?

Если бы полиция моды ознакомилась бы с моим гардеробом, то из шокового состояния ее вряд ли бы удалось вывести даже самому лучшему колдомедику. Ибо почти все - либо ретро, либо хипповое, либо немодное. Зато мне нравится. Хит для создания шока - конечно же, моя мантия, которую кто-то из фандома ГП назвал "профессорской".
И да, я ее надеваю, только не на публику, на публику я вообще не одеваюсь и не раздеваюсь.
Надеваю и иду в ней куда захочу, не только на тематические встречи.

If you woke up surrounded by doctors who told you that you'd been in a medical experiment since birth and that your entire life had been a dream, how do you think you'd react?

I'm not surprised,  because honestly what would be more embarrassing? Finding out you've been a science experiment and now what? I would be very curious to learn how this works. Hi, you're in the matrix, but instead of using your corporeal form as a battery, we're keeping you in a vat to see how you'll turn out. I think you could distil the common literal interpretations of most religions, you'd be at the same end. I'd be wondering what is the point of this whole thing. There'd better be a good reason.  Once I tried to get off the ride and got bitch slapped by moderators. If I were actually in this situation, I bet the device I was in would be called a  self viewer. I wonder if there is a grand goal involved. Is it 16 Candles? I've got a feeling I'd be immediately thrown in prison, or worse. Where's the 72 virgins or Jesus land mansion.

Вопрос дня: Не курить?

Would you want your city to outlaw smoking on public streets? Why or why not?

Естесственно. Даже сейчас хочу.
 Во-первых, это частично избавит как курильщиков, так и окружающих от всевозможных последствий курения.
Ну, а во-вторых, может хоть такими жесткими методами можна будет избавится от разбросаных повсюду окурков и плевков.

Минусом этого вижу тот факт, что если курение запретят на улицах, то существенно увеличется количество несчастных случаев, связанных с возгораниями от сигарет, курением в постели и т.п.

If i were granted unlimited magic powers for only five minutes i would use them to do the following:
1. Heal my mother's heart from all the pain and hardships she's had to endure in her life, to give her peace and comfort, to fill it with joy and hope unlimited.
2. Give my mother the sort of life she always wanted to have, the sort of life she deserves with the basic things needed to live a good life.
3. Erase myself completely from everyone's minds, hearts and lives and disappear forever.

There's little that's shocking about my wardrobe. Everyday I wear gray pants, a button down shirt, and (when needed) hand-painted reading glasses.

Usually I wear tennis shoes, but I have some leather shoes for dress occasions.

Even though there's nothing shocking about my wardrobe, I might get a ticket from the fashion police for dressing the same way every day.  I'm sure  there's some people who think I only own one pair of pants.

That brings to mind the old cliche of, "If you only have three wishes, use one to wish for infinite wishes!". If I had unlimited magic powers for five minutes, the first thing I'd use them for is to give myself unlimited time to use them - maybe make time stand still during that five minutes so I could do everything I wanted or something like that.

Then? Then I'd really get crackin'. :D

Which item in your wardrobe would shock the fashion police? Do you wear it in public?


Ok, the level of offense against the fashion police is, to me, up for debate....

So I have this skirt. It is a ankle-length gray skirt. It is very nice quality. But I have only worn it one time. And apparently, I am not allowed to wear it ever again. :P

I don't know when I got it... the skirt just sort of appeared in the back of my closet, which means that my mom probably bought it for me when I was in high school and I never actually got around to wearing it. But it has traveled with me for years and finally, during Christmas 2009, I decided to wear it to our family Christmas dinner at my Aunt Holly's house in Michigan.

When Andy saw the pictures, he dubbed the skirt, "The Mormon Skirt". And told me I should never wear it again*.

Тады ей надыть говорящего артиста православного театра Чаплина, и прочих членов тоталитарной антихристианской секты государственной, то есть РПЦ арестовать. За то, что они в средневековом одеянии, которые похожи на платья женские, причём ещё и с бородами, демонстративно смеют по стране, и по всему миру разъезжать!

Да ещё в светском, современном государстве - публично поучают морали, нравственности, и своему невежеству, мракобесию, и суеверию, образованных людей. И при этом - ещё живут за счёт государства светского, попирая Конституцию, Уголовный кодекс, и все законы прочие. Да ещё вдобавок, спекулируя на религиозных чувствах граждан, и пользуясь покровительством его высших должностных лиц - используют рабский труд людей!

Например, за мой пятилетний рабский труд миллиардер - РПЦ глава, платить не желает! http://www.pravdoiskanie2009.narod.ru Зато православным орденом награждён Лебедев - председатель Верховного РФ Суда!

Вот кого полицейский должен арестовать: тех, кто попирает все законы государства, и основные конституционные права граждан. Да ещё вдобавок смеет средневековую свою моду, и дрист - код Византийский православный, всей стране пытаться навязать! Их судить публично надыть за 1000летний геноцид Российского народа, и за то, что они не желают законы государства соблюдать. И в тюрьме строгого режима - полицейский должен их держать в тюремной робе, до самой смерти их не выпущать!

Unlimited powers for five minutes... I'm going to assume that with these magical powers that I can make shit happen at the snap of a finger.
-Fix the ozone layer.
-Make all the oil/pollution/jank chiz in the ocean disappear.
-Make it so all the soil/dirt on the earth can grow food and stuff. Seriously, like in some places you can't even grow food cuz the dirt is all dry and crusty.
-Garbage? Disappear. (except the recyclable stuff--)
-Clean my room.
-Stop 9/11 from happening.
-Make it so that the X-gene from X-men actually exists. And also make it so I have it and it gave me the ability to fly. Probably telekinesis shit.
-Let's bring back dragons, yeah? But friendly ones from like, How To Train Your Dragon
-Y'know how polar bears don't have land or whatever cuz it's all melting from global warming? Yeah, I'll fix that. Like, make it so the land don't be melting or something. Is it all tied into the whole ozone thing? I'll just make more freakin' polar bears so they're not endangered.
-While I'm at it, make it so all endangered animals aren't endangered anymore. Also, bring back Dodo birds.
-Make Chris Colfer the U.S. Secretary of State.
-Create an awesome charity that helps kids and people with disease or whatever and through that meet awesome celebrities like Chris Colfer and Jennette McCurdy. But mostly Jennette McCurdy.
-Eradicate cancer and AIDS/HIV. Like, it doesn't even exist.
-Anything that's poisonous is gone, too. Why do we even have poisonous stuff?
-Go back in time and start a trust fund for myself so that when I am an adult I'll have millions of dollars.
-And lastly, go back in time so I can actually graduate from high school and college.

First, I'd create a time bubble. It'd let me walk into it and take all the time I needed to get my work done, while only minutes or a day would've passed outside of it.

Second, I'd create some traveling gizmo... whether a magic wand that just whisks me away to wherever I'm thinking, or a magic carpet, or some kind of teleporter. Anything that would let me get where I needed to go without having to spend money for it.

Third, I'd take away my mother's pain that keeps her from enjoying life.

That's all I'd really want. The time bubble could go away when I was done with it. The traveling gizmo I'd keep on hand, though: anything that would keep me from spending money, especially on something that keeps contributing to ecological destruction, or keeps me from having to deal with a government gone insane regarding this asinine "War on Terror," and allows me to see loved ones freely (or just do the daily commute), is priceless. So would be giving my mother her life back.

The rest of life's problems I could figure out and work out myself.

I would create a devise the size of an automobile car battery that had about the same weight. It would be capable of storing for an indefinite period enough energy to run a large household for a five year period. It would be safe and as fool proof as is possible (fools are infinitely inventive). It would have a charging period of a few seconds. The electrical power that it delivered could be adjusted as to voltage, amperage, and phase (might as well dream in color). I do believe that such a device would solve most of the world’s problems. A very cheap source of power would go a long way toward ending inequality and strife. It would also be very easy to manufacture with current tools and common materials. The manufacture would consume less than a watt of power for each unit. It would also be available in a wide selection of designer colors. (Grin)

I would take my first few seconds to freeze time, allowing me to plan out the best things to do, depending on the worlds current situation. I would then alter my body to allow such awesome super powers as, flying, telekinesis, regeneration, speed,  invulnerability, healing, the ability to slow down time, immorality and final I would create a potion that, when drank would give the user unlimited magic powers to the user for five minutes.

Then I would unfreeze time, I would first remove all ammunition from the world and store it in the forth dimension inside of a bag that reduces all contents to a single dimensional form  . I would then craft a pocket watch that, when both had met, would open up in the middle and should a small sting, this string would be attached to the bag, allowing me to pull it back into the three dimensional world if ever needed, however the pocket watch would only work when I want it to, other wise it was broken.

I would then go about doing the things I had come up with during the time I spent when time was frozen until I ran out of time. :D

"Familicide."

Nah, but it is the first thing that comes to mind. What is the price of this magic power?

Anyways I would probably first use the magic to stop time or slow it down to decide what to do. If that kind of cheating is not allowed then I guess go all out. Make myself an awesome castle, summon up some dragons and shit, and leave a bunch of perplexing physical evidence that magic really exists. (Maybe summon some Bigfoots?)

And then at the end maybe magic away some of the pollution. It's not like this is a chance that will come around very often.

I don't think five minutes would be long enough to solve the political problems worldwide. I am not sure what could be done with that but if I still had some magic left I'd try to magic up some cures for malaria, AIDs, and Alzheimers.

I wouldn't believe the wizard who granted my such powers, and with much attitude I would flick my hand at him and scoff; as I did so, however, a purple mist would explode from my palm and destroy the wizard! So since the magical powers only lasts for five minutes, they would be gone with wizard and I couldn't ask him to give them back to me. Later in life I would probably think it my imagination and go crazy.

If you could give one friend a superpower, which friend would you choose, and what power would you give him or her?

My adopted sister is my best friend - I'd give her the power of teleportation. This way, she could pop in to see me, her son, her sweetheart, etc. any time she needed/wanted to.  Unfortunately, I'd give her ability limitations - such as it'd be a single-person ability, meaning she couldn't teleport people with her.  It'd be both a blessing and a curse, unfortunately.  Blessing: people wouldn't be able to take advantage of her. Curse: she wouldn't be able to teleport others out of danger.

Perhaps, I'd give her the ability to teleport others, but at a cost - at 1 year per person, per trip. This way, she could save someone under dire circumstances.

I don't know... maybe she wouldn't want the ability at that price. Still, it'd keep others from using her as a taxi... :)

If you were granted unlimited magic powers for just five minutes, what would you do?

Okay, so I'm taking an art history class that I really like, so that will probably affect my answer. And while the magic power only lasts five minutes, whatever spells I cast should be permanent... I would change my body to look similar to Venus in Botticelli's Birth of Venus, I would then transport myself to Italy so I could see Michaelangelo's David, and while a standard power might be something having to do with money, I am no exception to that, but I think that it should be legal as well, so I'd go back in time (can't all powerful wizards do that?) and (okay I'm kind of harnessing Back to the Future here) leave a note for myself - like in a safe deposit box or something, with the winning scores of major sports games that you could win a lot betting on. Or, you know, I could do the money thing the easy way and just conjure it up so I'd have it, but in this day and age I'd still have to be careful spending it, cause if you suddenly appeared with like a million dollars and spent it, the government would be questioning you. But I think if you conjured money you should make enough to pay the tax man so no one cares where it came from. Okay, clearly I have too much time on my hands now, cause this is far too detailed for a simple question that I'm sure should be answered with something simple, such as:
invisibility or disappear/reappear or flying or something like that. Those would be cool too, but I would think with unlimited magic powers, you'd have the equivalent of three wishes that you cast yourself, so I would change my body (less painful and easier than surgery and certainly more permanent than dieting), get money (somehow) and then maybe cast a spell for the unlimited ability to disappear/reappear anywhere. That way when the 5 minute magic wears off I would have exactly what I need to be happier, provide for my family and have more fun when I have the time. 

Writer's Block: Merlin revisited

If you were granted unlimited magic powers for just five minutes, what would you do?

1) Heal those who are sick.
2) Put my ex on a remote island and make him think of all the pain he has caused our daughter.
3) Give my daughter enough money to get through her education so she wouldn't have to worry about the financial strain.
4) Stop the wars and do away with Al-Qaidea and all criminals.

Just to name a few :)

Writer's Block: Merlin revisited

If you were granted unlimited magic powers for just five minutes, what would you do?

Change the court decision in 2000 so that Gore had been president instead of Bush and the entire world would be in a different situation than it is now.

This might require a little post-revision tune-up with the remaining 4 minutes, so that "the Arab Spring" still occurred, though maybe find a way to rescue the guy who immolated himself (the event which set everything off).

Then see if I could cure all mental illnesses worldwide including excess greed, and make malaria and polio and TB extinct.

By then I think I'd be out of time.

Writer's Block: Say goodbye to Kansas, Dorothy

If you woke up surrounded by doctors who told you that you'd been in a medical experiment since birth and that your entire life had been a dream, how do you think you'd react?

It would kill me that I didn't have my sons any more, but then I think accept it and move on. What can you do? Nothing...anger, sadness, depression, fear and worry are pointless. Wherever you are, whoever your with, no matter what's going on, you can't change the past, ever, so deal, no matter how terrifying or angry I might be... you still have to deal and move forward. Course then I would demand to know what's my purpose, and what was the purpose of the experiment? And what do I have to do for them now. (And this may sound silly, but, I'm going there anyway) ... I'd ask if Gale Harold was real. I'd be crushed if he wasn't, but it would almost make sense, in a bizarre, weird, twisted sci-fi way, as how could a man that perfect and beautiful exist? :) 
Yep, clearly too much time on my hands at the moment.
