Yes, you can ask me anything, personal or impersonal, coherent or incoherent, general or specific. . . If I don't know the answer, I will make something up.

I thought you could weave straw into Gold. If you can do that, I'm not sure why crafting a sword should be much of a challenge.

How's it goin?

Yes, but you have to be able to pull it out of the stone yourself to show that you are worthy to be King Airmax.

How's it goin?

Okay. I got laid off in mid-December because of the dropping oil prices, so I've been spending a lot of time catching up on projects, which mostly includes making knives, but I haven't been doing much of anything the last few days, which is why I've been on here so much.

Who will win the Super Bowl?

Ravenclaw.

It's a little bit more of a challenge because symmetry is important when making a kingly sword.

Maybe but wouldn't an assymetrical sword leave wounds that don't heal as easily in a sword fight?

Yes, but it wouldn't be as elegant. The sword needs to be worthy of Airmax.

I don't know what a pokemon is. All I know is that it has something to do with Japanese animation.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

To be able to move things with my mind. I used to just want to fly until I saw "Chronicle" and realized I could fly if I could move things with my mind. I wonder why Jedi's don't realize that.

What is your dream profession?

Philosophy professor

What is your proudest moment?

Graduating from nuclear power school.

What is the biggest regret you are comfortable sharing?

Having a relationship with a woman on the internet for four years without meeting her.

If you could send yourself a 3 word message at some point in your past, what would the message be and to what time would you send it?

1997: Frippy is fake.

Who is your celebrity crush?

Alison Brie. It may be somebody else tomorrow, though. It changes all the time.

If you could exist in one fictional world, what would it be?

Harry Potter. And hopefully I would not be a muggle.

Thank you kindly! Very interesting hours. I highly approve of Alison Brie; I have a thing for funny women, and it helps when they are stunning.

Before I met tulle, I was also in a relationship with a girl I didn't meet in person for four years. We started in high school, before webcams or skype were things. I was fortunate in that she was real and we stayed together for 6 more years after that, but times have definitely changed.

I probably should have guessed philosophy professor, given your username.

Hiroshima. That's the first city that entered my mind when I read that, but I wouldn't drop a nuke there. If I had to drop a nuke somewhere, I'd drop it on Ar-Raqqah in Syria.

You sure that wouldn't motivate extremism?

It might, but it would kill a lot of people who need killin'.
