Why does a chicken cross the road in Iceland?

Fork or spoon?

Did you smoke a big ol' cigar the day your daughter was born?

Oh, don't worry, that cat will carry off your body, so you'll be able to live in our place!"

What, to you, are the qualities that make a good person? The qualities that make a good man, that make a good woman?

What things have you learned about the other staffers in their respective question threads that you particularly appreciated learning?

What last words would you pass down to humans in the upcoming generations? How about to this fandom and this forum?

Hmm, following a set of questions like that makes me feel a little silly for deciding to ask this, but eh.

Do you have any hats? If so, which ones are your favorites? What compelled you to buy hats if you have them? If you don't, why not?
Should hats be a form of currency?

By our powers combined, you are...?

PROTIP: his real name is Tengu "The Kami" Amaterasu

You told! >:(

Why does a chicken cross the road in Iceland?

With great caution. These people can't drive. I doubt they're even aware that the funny stick coming out of the steering column is for making a turn signal.

Fork or spoon?

SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!

Did you smoke a big ol' cigar the day your daughter was born?

No, but I did cut her umbilical cord. WITH MY TEETH.

OK, not with my teeth but with surgical scissors. Still, that's something I can lord over her for a lifetime. "I cut your cord, you know! Don't tell me you have to listen to your music loud!"

What, to you, are the qualities that make a good person? The qualities that make a good man, that make a good woman?

A good person is able to put themselves in the place of others and treat them with respect and compassion. This can take so many forms, like giving someone your last cigarette, donating to charity, or diving in front of a bullet to save someone else's life. It's just a way of living, and I don't see much difference between what makes a good man or a good woman in that regard.

What things have you learned about the other staffers in their respective question threads that you particularly appreciated learning?

What I think has been great about this experiment is that every staffer has been very sincere and forthcoming. It's been a real pleasure to see even very guarded staffers shrouded in mystery and intrigue speak so frankly about themselves. I hope it's made everyone feel closer to them.

What last words would you pass down to humans in the upcoming generations? How about to this fandom and this forum?

"Friends don't let friends listen to James Taylor."

Barring that, "Above all else, love one another. Life is incredibly short, and in this brief time you have here, live as you truly want to live, but try to leave this planet a little better than you found it."

Fandom:  "Keep creating!"

Forum: "A forum is only as good as the posts in it. Don't wait for good content; make it."

Do you have any hats? If so, which ones are your favorites? What compelled you to buy hats if you have them? If you don't, why not?
Should hats be a form of currency?

I have two hats: a straw fedora-type thing and a wool cap. I really need to get an ushanka in time for winter. That would be my favorite, because it keeps me so damn warm in the winter that I hardly need a coat at all.

Hats should indeed be a form of currency: the bigger they are, the more valuable they become. That guards of Buckingham Palace would be able to retire in style.

By our powers combined, you are...?

COLONEL Planet. I outrank that blue-skinned freak.

Are trees falling?

What do you do when you lose power in your household?

How prepared are you at a moment's notice for any kind of emergency?

Guess I should answer these before the thread gets archived.

Are trees falling?

Probably!

What do you do when you lose power in your household?

This hasn't happened to me in years. But I do have plenty of candles, just in case.

How prepared are you at a moment's notice for any kind of emergency?

In my home and at my job, I know where to immediately go in the event of a big earthquake. Pharmacies sell simple respirators in the event that a volcanic eruption sends ash our way. I'm also on the third floor, in case there's a flood. Still not ready enough for an asteroid striking the Earth though.

What about a zombie apocalypse, an alien invasion, or telemarketers?

I am prepared for all three of these in the same way - chainsaw-mounted flamethrower.

How old does your daughter have to be before you teach her the art of using the chainsaw-mounted flamethrower?
