I am not there yet, but surely it won't take that long. I'll consider it done already. So, I'll do an AMA.

Ask and I shall answer.

Would you ever consider moving to America to take advantage of the Alcor cryopreservation center, so you can be resurrected 200 years from now after you die?

Because cities would look like this: https://eoshorizon.files.wordpress.com... And for a Medievalist, that's very depressing. :)

But by this time they'll have virtual worlds so sophisticated that you can just transfer your consciousness to this world. These worlds will consist of anything you can imagine, including the Medieval.

What do you think should be done to help stop the deforestation of the Amazon Rain-forest?

Did you ever slip/trip and fall?

Did you ever choke on food or beverage?

What internet browser do you use?

What is your opinion of the United States in general? Will that opinion ever change?

Isn't that because it's a European cultural thing to dismiss utilizing a wider range of the Y axis as "horrible modern architecture?"

It's not a joke. Those are perfectly legitimate questions.

We both know that no reasonable person would, even in an AMA, make known to an internet stranger their credit card and social security information or where they live.

Excuse me folks, I totally forgot this.

Consumers should refuse to buy products made from the material, and there ought to be imposed regulation that limits deforestation.

Did you ever slip/trip and fall?
Yes. It's very rare, though.

Did you ever choke on food or beverage?
No.

What internet browser do you use?
Firefox.

What is your opinion of the United States in general? Will that opinion ever change?
I like the concept of the country. Anyone, no matter his cultural and ethnic background, has a lot of opportunities there, and adapting is very easy. I detest the political spectrum, however, and especially hate the foreign policy, which many Americans sadly support. My opinion on the country has changed throughout time from very positive to negative. I don't think my current opinion will change; I know and like the good parts of the country, but the bad ones are too strong to ignore.

I'll answer the most interesting ones.

First name:
Mirza

Sex:
Man. As if it weren't obvious. :)

Relationship status:
Single.

Ethnicity:
White. Specifically, Bosniak.

Religion:
Islam.

Political ideology:
Libertarianism, mostly on the social side.

Preferred form of government:
Republic.

Preferred economic system:
Mixed economy.

Height:
188-189 cm. That's a bit above 6 foot 2.

It used to be dark blue, but I love different colours when applied to different environments or objects. I like dark blue clothes. I love grey walls and buildings (and I love grey weather). Generally, dark colours, mostly blue and grey.

I have a lot. Most of them are from Bosnia or Serbia, and they tend to be emotional songs.

One of them is called "Queen of sorrow", sung by one of the best singers alive. https://www.youtube.com...

In no particular order: FIFA, Football Manager, and World of Warcraft.

I am exceptionally good at reading people, to the extent they can be analysed from the behaviour they display. When I see in them what I do not like, and realize that their activity combined with their negative traits is causing or will cause damage one way or another, I tend to be irritated and want to humiliate them.

It's one of the reasons why I don't bond with many people here. I know them well, and others do not.

What's your honest opinion of me? (it is a question)
You seem to be a very promising person, both in terms of intellectual potential and as a member here. You seem nice and collected overall. :)

Here is a question for you, do you think I am a villian, anti hero or hero. Hero being amount to all good, anti hero beong somewhere in the middle not always good yet not always bad or the villian usually all bad?

Also would you do stuff for the greater good of all human kind even if millions died?
