I've been on DDO for 1 year and have recently achieved 3,000 posts, so I thought I'd have an AMA.

I have told you this before and I will say it again -- I have never interacted with you in the past, and have only debated you once in which you forfeited, so I don't know.

Best friend on the site?

Preferred presidential candidate in the US for 2016?

Personal opinion of who is the "best" debater on the site? (One that is active, or one that is inactive -- can be the same user if applicable)

You're a good debater and are becoming a fairly good voter. Your debating style is a lot like mine used to be. You're also a decent person.


Best friend on the site?

YYW, Voice-of-Truth, Diqiucun_Cunmin, 16k, ResponsiblyIrresponsible. Basically the five people I've talked the most to on non-serious stuff.


Preferred presidential candidate in the US for 2016?

I dunno -- maybe Bernie Sanders or even Hillary Clinton


Greatest fear?

Fear that life will become boring, with no reason to live. I'm not afraid of death so much as afraid of being put into a situation where I want to die.


Personal opinion of who is the "best" debater on the site? (One that is active, or one that is inactive -- can be the same user if applicable)

I don't think it's appropriate to answer this publicly; PM me if you really want to know.


Do you speak any other languages?

Yes.

Christopher Hitchens' "Arguably," Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons."

It's a name I created for my email ID many years ago, with my nickname "Tej" (pronounced with "t" as in "tea," "e" as in "bet," "j" as in "jump.") and short for "reticulated python," which used to be an animal species I was especially fascinated by.

You're a good debater and are constantly improving. Sadly, the RFD's I've seen from you haven't been so good. As a person, I haven't interacted with you enough to know.

House, M.D.


Favorite sports team(s), if any?

N/S

English, biology.


Mac or PC?

A Mac is technically a "personal computer," so I'm not really sure what you mean. If you mean laptop vs conventional PC, laptop.


Wait Wut:
If you were being forced to release a deadly disease on a major metropolitan population, what would it be and why?

Infertility - counts as "deadly," technically fits the term "disease" (just not an infectious one), and because it would reduce populations.


Would you rather be as small as an electron or as large as skyscraper?

As small as an electron.


White America or Kim?

what?


Are you a Basic Bro?

what?


Why are there 100 reasons to love the cat?

Because cats are adorable


What are the 100 reasons to love the cat?

I dunno


Other:

No.

Nobody.

Why ask such weird questions?


If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

(1) Get infinite wishes
(2) Save the world and animals, create the society I'd see as ideal
(3) A sandwich with lemonade


Is there someone you look up to? Why?

Airmax, because of the endless perseverance and determination he has in moderating the site and remaining calm and cool regardless of situation.


If you had to do the exact same thing for the rest of your life and nothing else, what would it be?

DDO


Scariest moment of your life?

One moment when the dog went missing and we thought he had ran out, and I got all shaky and stuff. We found him in the bathroom, and I literally cried with relief next to my mom. That was scary.


Honest opinion of meh?

Lots of fun to talk to, but way to far-right on issues. :P

You're a pretty good debater, but I haven't really seen excellent RFD's from you.

Creative. I like it.


Would you rather be as small as an electron or as large as skyscraper?

As small as an electron.

Same.


White America or Kim?

Songs used by the U.S military to deprive prisoners of sleep as a means of torture. Be advised that both are really horrible:

Same
(3) A sandwich with lemonade

Best wish ever.

Airmax, because of the endless perseverance and determination he has in moderating the site and remaining calm and cool regardless of situation.

This is the first good answer I have ever gotten to this question, lol.

Good answer. :)

Lol, thanks. Just know that there are people even farther right then me (and that's kinda scary).

Thanks! Yeah, I don't like taking the time to really vote and make superb RFDs. I usually target FFs and concessions. Lol.

What do you enjoy specifically about House M.D?

Why would you find being as small as an electron as better than a tall skyscraper?

If you only had three wishes it would be impossible to wish for infinite wishes. SO what would your first wish be again?

Who do you look up to in your life aside from DDO? Or who so you wish to be most like in your life?

What career are you most interested in? Medical Doctor?

The medicine and the humor.


Why would you find being as small as an electron as better than a tall skyscraper?

If I was as big as a tall skyscraper, it would cause levels of intimidation enough to jeopardize my safety from other normal-sized humans.


If you only had three wishes it would be impossible to wish for infinite wishes. SO what would your first wish be again?

Actually, I was just trolling on those wishes. All I'd like is "a sandwich," which is metaphorical for I don't like the idea of my getting three wishes of my choice -- it seems too powerful and too unfair.


Who do you look up to in your life aside from DDO? Or who so you wish to be most like in your life?

I don't wish to be like anyone, but for the people I admire, look at my photo album of the same name.


What career are you most interested in? Medical Doctor?

No. In a realistic world, I'd want to work in research, specifically in ethology. If "most interested in" includes an ideal world, I'd become a reputed writer. My life plan is to get a degree, work in research for a while while writing simultaneously, and then slowly transition to writing once I am secure financially.

Trump

Clinton

3. Who should I vote for in the end?

Between Clinton and Trump, Clinton.

4. How does one know when they have fallen in love?

Idk

5. How does one know when it's time to end the relationship?

Idk

6. What's your view on the morality and legality of abortion under varying circumstances, i.e. different stages of pregnancy, accidental pregnancy vs. rape, etc.?

Abortion should be legal in all cases with consent of the mother for up to 24 weeks of pregnancy. I think it isn't immoral as well.

7. How can one know that the external world exists and isn't just an illusion?

You can't know for certain, but many things -- such as abductive reasoning -- suggest the existence of an external world.

8. How can one know that the universe and all of us didn't just pop into existence a few moments ago with all of us having false memories of a past that never really happened?

One can't, but by probabilistic reasoning, this one makes a lot more assumptions than other propositions.

9. How do you feel about Downton Abbey?

Haven't watched it - based on the "sneak peak" advertisements, not good.

10. How do you feel about the Big Bang Theory (the TV show)?

I dunno. My mom loves it though.

I forgot to get to this. I sincerely apologize for that.

You're a fantastic debater, and are the one I've most enjoyed debating. I dislike to use the style you use personally--since I see it as lacking emotion and being overly mechanical--but it works for you when it comes to winning debates, and it's a great style (just not something I personally like). I thoroughly enjoyed our debate, and you were very convincing while using your statistics, and I think your defeat of me was justified. That was a lot of fun, so thanks! You're also a fun person to talk to and I can see we think in a similar way--we should talk more. You're new to mafia, so there's room for improvement, yet thus far (without any offense) I don't see you as a phenomenal player--but you're smart enough to improve swiftly.

Honest opinion?

I forgot to get to this. I sincerely apologize for that.

You're a fantastic debater, and are the one I've most enjoyed debating. I dislike to use the style you use personally--since I see it as lacking emotion and being overly mechanical--but it works for you when it comes to winning debates, and it's a great style (just not something I personally like). I thoroughly enjoyed our debate, and you were very convincing while using your statistics, and I think your defeat of me was justified. That was a lot of fun, so thanks! You're also a fun person to talk to and I can see we think in a similar way--we should talk more. You're new to mafia, so there's room for improvement, yet thus far (without any offense) I don't see you as a phenomenal player--but you're smart enough to improve swiftly.

This made my day, thanks :)

We should talk more

1. If you could have one superpower, what would it be? What would you do with it?

2. If you could travel back in time, where would you go?

3. If you could have one profession, regardless of current feasibility, what would it be?

4. If you could know one thing about your future, what would it be?

5. If you hadn't discovered DDO, what would you have most likely done with the free time?

I really wouldn't want to have one at all. Having one merely removes the constraints that make life interesting.


2. If you could travel back in time, where would you go?

The period of the French Revolution.


3. If you could have one profession, regardless of current feasibility, what would it be?

My "dream profession" is pretty feasible. I'd like to work in research (specifically in evolutionary biology and ethology), and then transition to writing.


4. If you could know one thing about your future, what would it be?

I would like to know if I get to write a bestselling non-fiction book.


5. If you hadn't discovered DDO, what would you have most likely done with the free time?

Very tough question. I really don't know. These days, I keep forgetting what I used to do before DDO. Perhaps read more or blog. But my writing, etc wouldn't have had nearly as much quality as it does thanks to DDO.
