Hey, thanks for not ignoring my inebriated questions, Mory!

1. Adventure games. TLJ, case in point.
2. Hmm.. puzzles, they're more straightforward. Strategy can get chaotic.
3. Not very far, beyond just showing how it's done. I'm pretty good at accepting "no".

Okay, I want to jump into this conversation as a girl's perspective.

I am very self conscious and for a long time, I thought I wasn't worthy of love, since I never got much guy attention, and when I did, they treated me like crap. And if you look in the "What Do You Look Like" thread, I'm not too bad looking. My Louie was pretty shy, and self conscious, and after we had started flirting more, I was the one to kind of ask him if he was going to ask me out. He is the hottest guy in the world to me, although a lot of my friends say he isn't really anything to drool over. But I love him so much, and had a crush on him the first moment I met him (even though I was with someone else... but he was treating me like crap), that looks aren't everything to me. He is so sweet to me, more than any other guy I've ever been with, always telling me how beautiful I am and helping my low self esteem. So, I think what I'm trying to say, is that it doesn't matter too much if you're shy, geeky, or even not good looking (not that I'm saying anyone here is ) that if you get time to get to know the person, it'll be maybe more likely for something to happen then expecting a girl to ask you out of the blue.

I am very self conscious, always putting myself down, and I think I'm geeky since I like games. I, for the longest time, thought I wasn't likable, so I think I may be a "shy, geeky girl", and I found my shy, geeky guy. Just become friends first, and ease your way into it.

Sorry for that kind of tangent. Now for the questions;

1. I think movies are more fit for drama. In games, especially if it's a cartoon, I just feel a little more detatched from it then a movie. You can get more emotion from actors in a movie, when (usually) the characters in the games have pretty bland faces, and don't show much emotion, especially real emotion.

2. Strategy is more itnersting to me, because I'm quite bad with solving puzzles. I like to think what could happen, and make strategies than try to solve a puzzle I don't get in the first place. Now, if you're talking about which game I prefer, it would be puzzles. I get a little tired of RTS, unless the story is amazing.

3. I wouldn't go very far into getting someone to like something I like. I'm a right wing fighter I think, I'll argue until the person at least sees my point of view, which stubborn people never do. But I'm very self conscious, as I've said, and I'd think they're judging me for what I like if they don't like it. So I give them the recommendation, hold my breath, and apologize profusely if they don't like it. lol

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't see Maq had already posted. The next person can just answer his questions then.

1. One or two days, depending on how far the trip goes.
2. I guess about 15 hours.
3. Tidy. Well, not exactly tidy like everything is in its right place, but I try to keep the house clean and neat. I usually succed quite well in that.

Those answers don't agree with me. I feel like I'm a mistake. Me and tons of other people like me. Thanks a lot, tsa. Thanks a lot. Unless you meant something else.

I'm afraid I didn't mean something else. I have a heart condition from birth. My heart looks quite different and doesn't function nearly as well as 'normal' people's (is there really someone on this planet who can be called a normal person? I don't think so). The only explanation I have for my physical shape is that Nature made a mistake when I was in the womb. I think it's the same with homosexuality. However, being born with a deviation from the norm doesn't make you a bad person. It just shows you that life is not fair. You have to deal with it whether you want it or not.

Okay, questions!

1. Would you enjoy living in a world where all humans had both male and female sex organs?
2. Would you enjoy living in a world where humans had no sex organs at all?
3. In either of the above two cases, what would you like your gender presentation to be? Feminine, masculine, or something in between?

  1. I don't see why not.
  2. Well, it's kind of doomed. But if there's cloning or something like that, then definitely.
  3. Gender presentation? Ha! Gender is irrelevant. When the superficial distinctions between genders go away, so do all the gender roles. There won't be men's clothes and women's clothes: it'll all be comfortable, and it'll all have pockets. There won't be men's behavior and women's behavior, or men's jobs and women's jobs. There is no "feminine" and "masculine", and those concepts would disappear as soon as we started looking the same.

    ..of course, I expect that all sorts of new superficial divisions between people would pop up, just because that's how we do things. In any event, my presentation of myself would be exactly the same as it is in this world. I am myself, I don't need shorthand to tell you that.

=============================================

  1. What sort of music would you be in the mood for right now?

  1. I'm listening to mid-eastern based electronica, and it is working for me.
  2. I'm looking forward to the baked wild king salmon with fresh, organic, raw veggies that I will be having just after this.
  3. A fantasy, with some adventure!

  1. Seeing Harry Potter 6 in a nice big empty theater and discovering how great that movie is.
  2. Nothing, really: it's been a pretty uneventful week. I've mainly been procrastinating, and I'd be lying if I said I'd do it differently given another chance.
  3. Bruno Delbonnel, the director of photography of Harry Potter 6. (He also did Amťlie and Across the Universe.) When the movie ended and I saw his name on the screen, I said to my father, "I have no idea who that is, but he's a genius.". And so he is.

============================================

  1. Do you stop noticing flaws in a story if it's got enough real momentum to it?
  2. Do you think every story needs to end with a climax?
  3. What story do you feel ended too soon?

1. I don't stop noticing flaws in stories, but that doesn't keep me from liking it as long as the story has "real momentum".

2. No, I don't think every story should end with a climax. I think it should have one near the end, but then it needs to wind down the story, either tying up all loose ends, or leaving a few things unanswered. It should not try to be selling another game. Dreamfall, although I love it, seemed to have an ending like a climax, when I thought TLJ had a good "winding down", even though there were things left unanswered.

3. A story I felt that ended too soon...Not sure if you mean movie, book, or adventure game. I'm just going to go with an adventure game, and say the story in "Dark Fall". There were so many unanswered questions he refuses to answer, like what the Dark Fall is, and the characters were amazing. But that was hard, because I know I've felt that something ended too soon, but for the life of me, I can't think of one.

-----------------------

1. What is more important when you have both in your life; work or school?
2. Do you study regularly if/when you were in school?
3. Did/do you used to procrastinate on school/work assingments, and if you do, was the end result just as good as if you hadn't?

  1. Work, I guess. I've never been in that situation, though.
  2. No, I never studied.
  3. I did procrastinate, and no, the result was not "just as good" as if I hadn't. I knew that going in, though. I never cared enough to do the work.
