In this I will answer any questions that you have (provided they are appropriate). I reserve the right to not answer any questions that I feel like I do not want to answer or it is inappropriate for me to answer.

I will also be doing HOYs (honest opinions of you), but remember that they are honest opinions so if you've had negative interactions with me (not applicable to many people) then it is preferable that you don't ask for an honest opinion.

With that all sorted, let the questions begin ...

Ah, this brings back memories, lol.......

(I'm on your side, btw -- honest opinions should be honest, though some people think you should sugarcoat it no matter what. I'm not one of those people.)

Anyway... I don't believe I've interacted with you before, so an honest opinion probably wouldn't say much (unless you've just really, really hated my posts or something, lol), so I'll just ask... what's up?

Yeah, I don't think we've interacted much. From what I know you're really intelligent. Especially in economics related topics and you're one of the most intelligent people on the site in regards to economics too. I haven't really seen any other posts by you other than economics related ones so I can't really go into much more depth than this at the moment.

I actually don't really remember why I called myself famousdebater. I guess I was interested in debating and found this site and when it told me to put in my username I thought of a username that was the closest to suiting what I was doing which was debating.

Do you like coffee/beer, and if so, what are your favorites?

I don't drink beer and I don't particularly like coffee but out of the two I'd have to say coffee.

I think that you're a really great contributor to the site and your opinions are very strong (which is a good thing). I especially like how you stand up for others when they're accused of something or are in an argument with another user. Regardless of whether I think that you're right or wrong I find those kind of actions admirable as an alternative to just sitting and watching people without actually doing anything.

Honest opinion of me?

I haven't had many interactions with you however you seem like a user with a lot of debating potential and you're very intelligent with your ideas. I really liked your new tournament idea and really hope that it happens . Other than that I haven't really had many interactions with you.

Do you like this video? https://m.youtube.com...

I do think that it has a good message and a good explanation however I do believe that some of the stuff is a little bias and untrue. A linear sequence can run on a finite planet that is recycling, reusing and reproducing materials at a huge rate for example which is basically the complete opposite of what she says. Regardless, I did like the message and I do believe that the materials economy is in crisis however what she says is a bit exaggerated. Yes, we are using more than we're reproducing however it isn't going to go to point at which she implies.

Would you rather live under totalitarianism or anarchism?

Anarchism. I've seen totalitarian places and trust me, they aren't good places to live in. The state governs absolutely everything and in essence dictates the people's lives which violates their human rights. Anarchism wouldn't be my preferred ideology however I do think that it is a lot better than totalitarianism. It does have its negatives because rule enforcement is significantly more difficult in these societies however what's important is that human rights are not being directly violated and at least we can say that we have a choice in our actions. I understand that anarchism could be chaos but let's look at this realistically - most people are sane and would live pretty normal lives. The minority may do bad things but then it's up to the people what the punishment is and if the people get fed up with criminals they could easily make punishment harsher for those caught which ultimately acts as a deterrent. Anyway, there's a lot of factors to consider put overall I'd probably have to go with anarchism.

Presidential candidate?

Probably Hilary Clinton. I mean, there are people that I do support more than her however they are pretty minor libertarians who probably won't be elected. With all things considered (including likelihood to win), out of the presidential candidates I support I'd have to go with Hilary.

Economic system?

Capitalist, more of a free market economy.

Political ideology?

Center / slightly right libertarian.

You're an extremely talented debater and an increasingly good contributor to the forums. You did beat me on a gun ban in the US debate however that was when I was a noob and I'm determined to give you more of a challenge when rematch. You were one of my first friends on DDO and you're a talented voter too. We also agree on a lot of issues so we have more time to discuss and debate the few issues that we disagree on.

Rank the following movies in order (1 being the best)

Casino Royale (2006) - 1
Quantum of Solace (2008) - 4
Skyfall (2012) - 2
Spectre (2015) - 3

You're one of the best active debaters on the site and you're definitely one of the sites greatest active forum contributors (which is pretty obvious considering your post count and just by viewing your general forum activity). I know what we've disagreed on a few things in the past although I still hope that we can talk and discuss things. You're an epic site president and your time and commitment to DDO is admirable. Voting is also one of your talents. You're vote quality goes up there with the likes of whiteflame, YYW, DK and Raisor which is something that you should be proud of.

It isn't worse than Quantum of Solace but it isn't as good as the others imo.

A mixture of horror and mystery.

Movies: The ring, star wars (all of them), Harry Potter (all of them), all bond films, Maze Runner, Scorch Trials, Divergent, Insurgent, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Macbeth, H&G Witch Hunters and San Andreas.

Shows: Sherlock, Doctor Who , Dragon's Den , Mr.Bean , The Big Bang Theory , The Great British Bake Off, The Chase, Countdown, Pointless.

Biology.

Mac.

Common cold - because there wouldn't be any fatalities and everybody would have to stay at home on DDO and long 10K character 4 round debates would be done in days.

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

Small as an electron because if I was as large as a skyscraper I'd probably be killed by the military.

White America or Kim?

White America

Are you Basic?

Other:
Yes or no?

No (I'm a pessimist)

Who dunnit?

Me.

If you had to ask me a question, what would it be?

I dunno, I'll get back to you on this when I think of something.

If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

1. Infinite wishes

I don't really need to say the other two because I'd have infinite wishes. I only need the one.

Is there someone you look up to? Why?

I look up to a lot of the philosophers that have shaped our understanding of the world, sense and God as we know it today. Despite being an atheist, I still look up to philosophers that provided arguments for Gods existence and the supernatural because they have been so crucial to our understanding today. There's a bunch of individuals so I'll list as many as possible: hume, descartes, socrates, plato, aristotle, hippocrates, kant, st.anslem, etc.

I also look up to people like Lenin, Trotsky and even Hitler (not for their actions or beliefs) but of how persuasive and good at speeches they all were. They were all (especially Trotsky, brilliant strategists too).

If you had to do the exact same thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I dunno ... maybe debating or watching debates so that I continue to grow in my knowledge.

Scariest moment of your life?

When I was 10 I skidded on ice flipped forward, my bottom lip was torn off, my knee was dislocated and I chipped my front two teeth. It happened in less than 20 seconds but it felt like it was 5 minutes long. It was really scary.

Honest opinion of meh?

You're an amazing debater (a lot better than me) and your views are a lot more defined than mine are. I think that we disagree on a lot of issues but that ultimately means that we have a lot of room to discuss our different opinions on issues and hopefully learn from each other. You're also a lot better at mafia than me.

Yeah. The possibility of destruction has a way of shaping choices, doesn't it.

White America

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You, good sir, are the first person on this site to ever answer this question without me explaining it. (You do understand it, right? Lol). The score is now 5/1.

Are you Basic?

Other:
Yes or no?

No (I'm a pessimist)

Same

Who dunnit?

Me.

Oh same.

If you had to ask me a question, what would it be?

I dunno, I'll get back to you on this when I think of something.

Aight.

If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

1. Infinite wishes

I don't really need to say the other two because I'd have infinite wishes. I only need the one.

Lol same. Many people just list 3 wishes and don't even give this possibility any thought.

Is there someone you look up to? Why?

I look up to a lot of the philosophers that have shaped our understanding of the world, sense and God as we know it today. Despite being an atheist, I still look up to philosophers that provided arguments for Gods existence and the supernatural because they have been so crucial to our understanding today. There's a bunch of individuals so I'll list as many as possible: hume, descartes, socrates, plato, aristotle, hippocrates, kant, st.anslem, etc.

I also look up to people like Lenin, Trotsky and even Hitler (not for their actions or beliefs) but of how persuasive and good at speeches they all were. They were all (especially Trotsky, brilliant strategists too).

Good answer. Nice and thought-out. The first of it's kind for me, lol.

If you had to do the exact same thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I dunno ... maybe debating or watching debates so that I continue to grow in my knowledge.

I would say, "What I have been doing for the entirety of my life as I have lived it to the present." That is technically one thing, and I wouldn't be limited to anything.

Scariest moment of your life?

When I was 10 I skidded on ice flipped forward, my bottom lip was torn off, my knee was dislocated and I chipped my front two teeth. It happened in less than 20 seconds but it felt like it was 5 minutes long. It was really scary.

Ow. Much hurt.

Honest opinion of meh?

You're an amazing debater (a lot better than me) and your views are a lot more defined than mine are. I think that we disagree on a lot of issues but that ultimately means that we have a lot of room to discuss our different opinions on issues and hopefully learn from each other. You're also a lot better at mafia than me.

Thanks! But I am by no means the best. My views are defined more because I have been here for a while, and I already had them (albeit different) when I joined. I used to be a nationalistic, neoconservative authoritarian, but I have recently made the transition into a government-hating, paleoconservative Libertarian.

Like you said, a difference in opinion is a good thing. Much discussion can come from it, as well as learning.

I might be better at Mafia, but I am still a noob, lol.
Suh dude

I will also be doing HOYs (honest opinions of you), but remember that they are honest opinions so if you've had negative interactions with me (not applicable to many people) then it is preferable that you don't ask for an honest opinion.
