This is getting old now so I doubt anyone would ask, but what the heck?!
Ask me anything!

I hope I don't regret this...

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I have no clue what that means.

Split the food in half and give it to both.
Or if I had to choose- Africa. The child in America might be closer to somewhere else where they might be able to access food.

what would you do if you fell out a plane with no parachute?

Scream, hyperventilate and have a heart attack.

what are you afraid of the most?

God, Hell and spiders.

would you rescue linkish from impending doom?

It depends... Am I getting chocolate in return?
Lol. JK. f'course

if not its ok linkish can always save himself.
*Hugs* Aww!

If you had to choose between eating poop and dancing with me, what would you choose?

Have you ever been to America?

Why is the candy castle made out of ice cream?

Nope. Never had a boyfriend either.

Not a lot and not often.

Yup!

What's the scariest thing you've ever done?

What do you do for fun?

What's the stupidest thing you've ever done?

If you had to marry someone on DDO who would it be?

If you had to choose to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Sweet or salty food?

Do you like spicy food?

Ever tried sushi?

Fishing or hunting?

Slapped a boy when he called me a son of a female dog...
Mum got called in school.

Hmm... Not you. You have a girlfriend and I am so not a home-wrecker.
Probably... IDK...
Fanath is a bit too young. So is 9spaceking...

Yup. In the Caribbean, not many people don't.

Ever tried sushi?

Yup. Didn't stay long in my stomach though...

Fishing or hunting?

Never done either. Archery will help with hunting but fishing has always seems awesome to me...

Have you ever been asked on a date?

Who is your favorite author?

Says who, blue shoe?

Do you believe in life after love?

When designing socioeconomic systems that deal with "big data" how much priority consideration should be given to outlier data?

Are you a good dancer?

Have you ever viewed pornography?

Am I as incredibly handsome as I think I am?

Am I as brilliant as I think I am?

What is the meaning of life?

What was your favorite debate on DDO?

No. But I have been asked to 'hook up,' and I reported it to a teacher because we were both 11 or 12 at the time.

I have a few: Sarah Dessen (girly sad books), Rick Riordan, Suzanne Collins, I used to like James Patterson.

Dr Who? Or blue's clues?

I have never designed such systems. But IMO, outliers always matter. Ever individual raw data matters.

Not at all.

*blushes*
By accident. On tumblr... You only make that mistake once...

Am I as incredibly handsome as I think I am?

I believe everyone is beautiful. Therefore, yes, most likely. =)

Am I as brilliant as I think I am?

Everyone is brilliant in some way.
So yes, probably.

What is the meaning of life?

life
[lahyf] Show IPA

noun, plural lives [lahyvz] Show IPA .
1.
the condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally.
OR
a corresponding state, existence, or principle of existence conceived of as belonging to the soul: eternal life.
according to: http://dictionary.reference.com...

JK. IMO, we are here, alive, to worship and pray to God.

What was your favorite debate on DDO?
Poop has DNA.

Yes. I believe in God. I don't mean two people can't be in love. I don't believe that there is only ONE person out there for someone. If you think about it, there are billions of people in the world, you are bound to find a few, you would relate to...
In other words, I believe if I meet someone who is kind, smart and has proper manners etc, I would settle down with them (years from now though). I wouldn't wait for that one person with 'fireworks' or leave someone who is a good person because I feel 'sparks' with someone else.

I have never designed such systems. But IMO, outliers always matter. Ever individual raw data matters.

I danced at an all-girls' party. It was mortifying and they never left me alone for it.

*blushes*

I didn't have time to think about whether I enjoyed it or not. My parents were in the next room and the door was open. I started clicking and slamming buttons fast to change it.

Beauty, IMO, is incomparable, unless the person has a really ugly attitude.

I do neither of those things, but I still find great meaning in life.

Have you read any nihilist or absurdist works?

Nope.
The closest I've gotten to absurdist novels was TMI series, no offense.

What makes you so sure that god wants you to waste your life "worshiping" him?

Either way, IF he exists, then I would rather worship him, than not. I want to worship him and thank him for my life and all my blessings- food, shelter, air to breathe, my family, friends, grades, school, all my opportunities etc.

Do you think "worship" should be prioritized over enjoying worldly pleasures?

Yes. At the same time though, I have enjoyed a lot of things in this world.

Do you think "worship" takes priority over seeking progress?


Yes. If I pray to God, he will give me blessings and later on, I will be hopefully granted access to Heaven. I would rather not progress here and go to Heaven, than progress here and possibly go to Hell.

What's your opinion of secular humanism?

I need to do more research on this and let you know.

What was your favorite debate on DDO?
Poop has DNA.

I meant a debate that you were a part of.
Someone challenged me to do a debate whether students should be able to drop out of school because they thought I'd have been an easy win since I forfeited my first two debates. I had time then and I think I did good.
OR
Who's more awesome? with MyDinoHands... It was hilarious.

I wouldn't say that there is only one person in the world who you can share true love with (in fact, I think there are plenty) but I do believe that true love exists. One day, you will find someone who you are inexplicably attracted to, and hopefully they will be in the socioeconomic position to support married life. I am not much older than you, but I have read much on the subject, and experienced much as well, and I can say confidently that I have truly loved. Those these loves have been lost, or fallen apart, I still believe that it was true love. Now I simply hope to find lasting true love (and I think I might have!).

Am I as incredibly handsome as I think I am?

I believe everyone is beautiful. Therefore, yes, most likely. =)

But am I more beautiful than everyone else? (A clue: Yes)

Beauty, IMO, is incomparable, unless the person has a really ugly attitude.

Then I am gorgeous. Call me ganymede (jk).

Am I as brilliant as I think I am?

Everyone is brilliant in some way.
So yes, probably.

But am I significantly more brilliant than most people? (A clue: Yes)

I don't know you well enough to tell.

Annie, plz.

What is the meaning of life?

life
[lahyf] Show IPA

noun, plural lives [lahyvz] Show IPA .
1.
the condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally.
OR
a corresponding state, existence, or principle of existence conceived of as belonging to the soul: eternal life.
according to: http://dictionary.reference.com...

JK. IMO, we are here, alive, to worship and pray to God.

I do neither of those things, but I still find great meaning in life.

Have you read any nihilist or absurdist works?

Nope.
The closest I've gotten to absurdist novels was TMI series, no offense.

You might consider reading something like The Stranger. It can be very enlightening.

What makes you so sure that god wants you to waste your life "worshiping" him?

Either way, IF he exists, then I would rather worship him, than not. I want to worship him and thank him for my life and all my blessings- food, shelter, air to breathe, my family, friends, grades, school, all my opportunities etc.

But what if you waste your life doing these things, and die only to find A) he doesn't exist, or B) he didn't care if you worshiped him or not as long as you were a good person or C) he wanted you to worship him by enjoying the world.

Do you think "worship" should be prioritized over enjoying worldly pleasures?

Yes. At the same time though, I have enjoyed a lot of things in this world.

I consider myself an ethical hedonist, so understand that this is where my confusion with your philosophy arises. I simply believe that striving to bring yourself and others worldly pleasure is of the highest virtue.

Do you think "worship" takes priority over seeking progress?


Yes. If I pray to God, he will give me blessings and later on, I will be hopefully granted access to Heaven. I would rather not progress here and go to Heaven, than progress here and possibly go to Hell.

I meant societal progress as a whole. Do you think scientific/social progress should be impeded in order to better allow the worship of the abrahamic god?

What's your opinion of secular humanism?

I need to do more research on this and let you know.

Alrighty.

What was your favorite debate on DDO?
Poop has DNA.

I meant a debate that you were a part of.
Someone challenged me to do a debate whether students should be able to drop out of school because they thought I'd have been an easy win since I forfeited my first two debates. I had time then and I think I did good.
OR
Who's more awesome? with MyDinoHands... It was hilarious.

Have you considered partaking in debates that are a bit more "cerebral?"

How can you be so sure that true love doesn't exist?

Do you believe in life after love?

... IDK.
I don't believe in that 'one true love' and fireworks etc...

But you believe in god? WTF M8. You think it's totally real that some totally undetectable bearded man in the sky controls everything, but you don't believe that two people can be totally and uncontrollably attracted to each other???

Yes. I believe in God. I don't mean two people can't be in love. I don't believe that there is only ONE person out there for someone. If you think about it, there are billions of people in the world, you are bound to find a few, you would relate to...
In other words, I believe if I meet someone who is kind, smart and has proper manners etc, I would settle down with them (years from now though). I wouldn't wait for that one person with 'fireworks' or leave someone who is a good person because I feel 'sparks' with someone else.

I wouldn't say that there is only one person in the world who you can share true love with (in fact, I think there are plenty) but I do believe that true love exists. One day, you will find someone who you are inexplicably attracted to, and hopefully they will be in the socioeconomic position to support married life. I am not much older than you, but I have read much on the subject, and experienced much as well, and I can say confidently that I have truly loved. Those these loves have been lost, or fallen apart, I still believe that it was true love. Now I simply hope to find lasting true love (and I think I might have!).

You didn't get it. I don't believe in one true love. I believe people can fall in love etc. But I don't believe everyone has one designated person to fall in love with and if they don't meet that person---
I get it now. I phrased this wrong. I believe there is such a thing as love. I don't believe in soul mates.

When designing socioeconomic systems that deal with "big data" how much priority consideration should be given to outlier data?

I have never designed such systems. But IMO, outliers always matter. Ever individual raw data matters.

Take a statistics class.

I have.

Have you read The Black Swan or Antifragile?

Nope.

Are you a good dancer?

Not at all.

How do you know?

I danced at an all-girls' party. It was mortifying and they never left me alone for it.

You are going to allow others tell you whether or not you are a good dancer???

I am going to let me tell me I am a bad dancer.
That doesn't mean I have stopped dancing on the whole though.

Have you ever viewed pornography?

*blushes*
By accident. On tumblr... You only make that mistake once...

Did you enjoy it?

I didn't have time to think about whether I enjoyed it or not. My parents were in the next room and the door was open. I started clicking and slamming buttons fast to change it.

Mmm then perhaps you should give it a try? LOL!

Pornography is wrong.

Am I as incredibly handsome as I think I am?

I believe everyone is beautiful. Therefore, yes, most likely. =)

But am I more beautiful than everyone else? (A clue: Yes)

Beauty, IMO, is incomparable, unless the person has a really ugly attitude.

I don't know you well enough to tell.

I'll pretend I didn't see that innuendo and move on...

I'll look for it.

What makes you so sure that god wants you to waste your life "worshiping" him?

Either way, IF he exists, then I would rather worship him, than not. I want to worship him and thank him for my life and all my blessings- food, shelter, air to breathe, my family, friends, grades, school, all my opportunities etc.

But what if you waste your life doing these things, and die only to find A) he doesn't exist, or B) he didn't care if you worshiped him or not as long as you were a good person or C) he wanted you to worship him by enjoying the world.

Then, what do I have to lose?
I'd still be sort of a good person.
I am enjoying the world. I travel. I read etc.

Do you think "worship" should be prioritized over enjoying worldly pleasures?

Yes. At the same time though, I have enjoyed a lot of things in this world.

I consider myself an ethical hedonist, so understand that this is where my confusion with your philosophy arises. I simply believe that striving to bring yourself and others worldly pleasure is of the highest virtue.

Hmm... I think we can do both at the same time. We can worship and enjoy the world.

Do you think "worship" takes priority over seeking progress?


Yes. If I pray to God, he will give me blessings and later on, I will be hopefully granted access to Heaven. I would rather not progress here and go to Heaven, than progress here and possibly go to Hell.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I am a weird person. Although I believe in God, I am for it. He wouldn't let us achieve something if He doesn't want us to.
