Ask Me Anything

Posted by SwagtronYOLO , Mar 22 2015 · 1,706 views

Realized I hadn't done one of these in a while.

So, yeah, literally any topic is on the table (within bzp rules of course).

Just know that while my username is currently Nigel Thornberry, my actual understanding of zoology is rather limited. XP

How do you feel about misleading literally several people regarding the scope of your knowledge of zoology by falsely adopting the name of a most respectable man?

 

You are walking through a park when you suddenly hear a satisfying crunch under your feet. (you were wearing big ol metal boots because of reasons) You look down and see a crushed 2x2 brick. Looking closer, you find it to be wearing a tiny little name tag. "Samantha." At last, your quarry has been found, yet you have already destroyed it. What do you do?

@Capn Submiki - My dreams are dreary ethereal experiences where the most insane and peculiar events unfold in a disorderly fashion. So... maybe.

I got a letter from Samantha, actually. She's apparently gone backpacking through the Atlantic Ocean to find herself. So... that's a thing.

What is your name? What is your quest? What is your favorite color?

Sir Fumptlebumper Stalgerbert.
I desire all of the grail and doesn't afraid of anything.
Don't make me play favorites with my children.

Did I ask you about playing chess in your last AMA blog entry?

Do you play chess?

Not sure if you did. I have played chess, however it's been a while. I don't know too many strategies, but I do remember how all of the pieces move. My last match was with my brother some time ago. I won. Before that I faced my cat. I think we called it a draw.

Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup?

Oh geez, I love all of these starters... I think I'd go with turtwig because I have so many other water and fire starters raised.

Where are the fillings?? :music:

I ate them. I ate all of them.

WHERE ARE THE BODIES

Pfft. Like I'd tell you. I bet you don't even own a sombrero!

If you could be anyone/anything for a day, who/what would you be?

What is your favourite food?

How many languages do you speak?

I think I'd be a bird of some sort. Maybe a raven or a seagull. Owls are cool as are hawks. Flying sounds nifty. ^^

Freshly baked bread still hot from the oven is probably one of the best things ever. I also like French Buttercream that I've made before. Super decedent.

My first language is English. I still don't know how it works, honestly. I studied Spanish for a little over three years, but by now most of it is forgotten. I have also picked up a few Japenese words from being weeaboo trash and watching subbed anime instead of the dub.

If you were given the opportunity to travel back to any time in your life, essentially given a do-over, would you do it? If so, what time would you go back to?

 

Did I ever ask you what your favorite Andersen story is? What's your favorite Andersen story?

 

Favorite season. What and why?

 

You've been Toph, Nigel, and (I think) a character from a game. What's your next identity?

 

Are you an outdoorsy person? Do you like camping? Have I already asked you this? (I think so.)

 

Do you wish you knew more about zoology?

 

What's your favorite time period to research, if any?

 

Favorite baked good to eat? Oh you answered that above. How about to make?

 

Speaking of which, what got you into the cuilinary arts?

If you were given the opportunity to travel back to any time in your life, essentially given a do-over, would you do it? If so, what time would you go back to?


I honestly have no idea. I had this tendency to look back on my life a lot and wish I could change a lot of things during my middle school and high school days. I'd try and be less anxious, I wouldn't have over-thought literally everything, I would have put more effort into being happy. Had I known then what I know now, I think maybe things could be very different for me, for better or worse. But would I really go back to a time where I was constantly miserable and second guessing every aspect of my life? I'm honestly not sure if I would want to relive that.
 

Did I ever ask you what your favorite Andersen story is? What's your favorite Andersen story?

The Little Mermaid has always had this enchantment to it that drew me in. Maybe it was the comparison and imagery in an underwater kingdom (the way her garden glowed like the sun, or how merfolk could not cry and therefore felt greater pain, etc) that really stuck with me. The ending to that story really showed how much Andersen believed in the good in people, and I honestly think that's incredible.
 

Favorite season. What and why?

I love every season for different reasons, however I've long thought of winter as my favorite. Being able to see everything calmed and quiet is very serene. A few friends and I recently went to Lake Eerie which is still frozen over. Normally there's a lot of wind and the noise of the waves. Seeing it so quiet and still is an impossible sight at any other time of year.
 

You've been Toph, Nigel, and (I think) a character from a game. What's your next identity?

Another game character. A group of members and I will be donning the personas of characters from Bravely Second; a sequel to Bravely Default. My character is the one with the sweet hairdo.
 

Are you an outdoorsy person? Do you like camping? Have I already asked you this? (I think so.)

I do enjoy walks outside, however I'm normally a shut-in out of habit. I will say mosquitos are my least favorite animal. And yes, I think you have asked me this before. XD
 

Do you wish you knew more about zoology?

Actually, I do. I was always interested in animals as a kid, but I was a poor student. I remember being interested in Honors Bio in high school, though dissection did make me queasy.
 

What's your favorite time period to research, if any?

Hmm, interesting question. I'm not much of a history buff to be honest. I more so just look up what happens to interest me.
 

Favorite baked good to eat? Oh you answered that above. How about to make?

I do enjoy tempering as a method for baking. Something about it just feels rewarding be it chocolate or pastry cream.
 

Speaking of which, what got you into the cuilinary arts?

Admittedly it was a rushed decision. I was a senior in high school, I was super anxious about my future, and I knew I didn't want to go to a four year college totally undecided. I knew myself, and I didn't want to wind up with something totally pointless for a degree. I knew I was more of a kinetic learner, and I had made gingerbread houses at home for the holidays. So, I decided to try my luck at applying for culinary school. I went into baking because it required more patience and seemed a bit more easy going than cooking.

And honestly it's something I enjoy more than a desk job, even if the industry is weird.
 

Should I do an AMA?

I don't see why not.

Do YOU own a Sombrero?
That information is classified.

No. All many space.

I will allow this. Also thanks! Though admittedly it is a goofy industry to get into. XD. (Then again, what isn't?)

Why?


I've asked this question many a time. Why are we here? Why is anything here? Is Earth the only planet with life or are there others out there separated by a sea of nothing? Is this universe even real? Am I even who I think I am or am I merely being controlled by a higher being beyond my comprehension who is using this vessel in a similar way I control an avatar in a video game? For that matter, is free will even possible, or is my brain designed in a way that ultimately my decisions are made before I am aware of the choice? Would that make a moral code to adhere to moot, or is there truly a perfect set of values to follow? Is such a system even possible in a world that is often so complex and cruel? I like to try and think logically and objectively about things, but is that truly possible when I am subject to personal bias out of my nature?

I dunno man, but it would probably make for a decent sci fi book.

tekulo, no matter how bad 2017 is, it will be better for me knowing that you went into it with the username "swagtronYOLO"

A winter holiday being celebrated in November? Obviously this can only be the work of...
http://vignette4.wik...&path-prefix=enFAIRY GODPARENTS

September 14th 2016 will forever be remembered as the day Tekulo became The Smoothest Person to Ever Live







How am I supposed to travel all of these islands?


Lapis Lazuli your water wings let you fly across the galaxy I think you can handle three islands








Hmm... I really have no strong opinion of either of them.
Both of them probably suck.

Gathered friends,

We are gathered here today to honour the passing of Tekulo. Killed by a shark and shot by a bow. Some would say no one deserves such a death. Others say he was asking for it.

Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.

Ramen.

Try not to worry too much about it. Deep breaths. Scented candles. Meditation.

Imagine a whale.

A majestic, fabulous whale.

She's coming to say hello.

She's getting kinda close and invading your personal bubble.

There's not enough room for the two of you!

No, whale, noooooo!

I thought about it, but that led me on this existential space-out stream of consciousness metaphorical...thing.

It was weird.

So, lesson learned: when interacting with the personification of a concept, don't try to employ that concept on them.

The joke's always on you. You're glue in a rubber band world.











INDEED, THE INTERNET SPOILS ALL.

I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT CLANNAD, BUT I DO KNOW THAT THIS STATEMENT IS COMPLETELY AND ANNOYINGLY TRUE.

(ALSO WHY ARE WE TYPING IN ALL CAPS?)











What is the location of a 2x2 LEGO brick that goes by the name Samantha?

"She's looking for a decomposed laptop that sports a five o'clock shadow."
----------- Sumiki's Dad on Samantha's Whereabouts

Ah, yes. "Hello, I'm calling on behalf of someone on the internet who says she didn't get her Delorean. No, I dont actually KNOW her, per se, or have proof she didn't get it, but she hates phone calls so this is a completely viable alternative." :P

Most people think puzzle games through and figure them out through intelligence and wit.

I just smash the square peg into the round hole until it breaks the hole big enough to go in.

Tekulo is the supreme overlord of lameness and illusory instigation and is far inferior to the illustrious and estimable Nuile, esquire, who is so awesome that a mere glimpse of his debonair, dashing handsomeness and general coolness blinds and in some cases melts eyeballs (note that I am not liable for any injuries acquired through staring at me) and is tall and eminent.

Tekulo in the Green → Black Six
Hello! Today it occured to me that I chat with a handful of staff members both on and off the site. this also made me realize they report directly to you. Whatever gossip they have spread about me behind my back, I assure you, is the truth (unless it isn't).

I remember wheb (edit: wheb is totally fetch and is in no way a typo)

Meanwhile my wardrobe is so vanilla that people chase me down the street asking me for ice cream.

Made my day. I would totally upvote this more than once if I could :3



I found a Voltex amiibo once. It was pretty terrible.

That's why I just don't follow Tekulo. You should try it =D

Important

I get that, but that's not enough. Love can't be reliant on truth, I don't want someone not to love me because we don't believe the same truth.

Love is unconditional, love loves despite flaws. Love is selfless, kind; it protects, it hopes.

Love stops hate.

Love will win.
