    Do you enjoy jazz? If so, what's your favorite? I'm a rocker dude! I'm not really into jazz though I do find some of it pretty interesting at times. And, Django Reinhardt kinda blows my mind.

    Do you like to cook? Any personal specialties? I love to cook if it can be barbequed. I can grill up some killer ribs, and my favorite, Ribeye Staek.

    Is arts education important? I think so. It helps you develope mental articulation and introduces the brain to diverse cognitive skills that help us solve intricate problems.

    I thought of some more.

    What were you like when you were my age (24)? What were your aspirations? What was your job? How did you wear your hair?

    When is the last time you used a Band-Aid?

    You speak very highly of your wife, but what positive characteristics do you bring to the relationship?

    Would you say you have a tight-knit (nuclear) family? What about your extended family?

    What were you like when you were my age (24)? What were your aspirations? What was your job? How did you wear your hair? By the time I was 24 I had a major epiphany concerning my life. I just got dumped by my longtime girlfriend and decided my life wasn't going the way I wanted. I cut my hair off, it was '91 and I went 90210 with the hair style. Hey, the chicks dug it and I dated some of the most georgeous girls ever in that time. I mean hot chicks that wouldn't give me a second look with long hair. I was at this party one time and this OK looking girl comes up to me and had the guts to tell me "You are by far, the best looking guy I have ever seen." I didn't know what to say I was obviously flattered, I just said thanks and walked off. I wish I would have asked her out and made her day. You know? At that time I moved back in with my mom and stepdad and went to school. I worked part time at a wharehouse as an inventory specialist. Unfortunately I dropped out of school to work construction and did for years.

    When is the last time you used a Band-Aid? About two weeks ago when I was going through testing for some heart issues. They hit veins or I would usually just let it bleed.

    You speak very highly of your wife, but what positive characteristics do you bring to the relationship? I'm the down to earth type of dude, I'm an observer. She comes up with the ideas and I analyze them to see if we can improve the process. She can question peoples actions at times and I've been there and done that so I just explain to her the different views that I've aquired. I forgot one thing, I am an excellent sperm donor.

    Would you say you have a tight-knit (nuclear) family? What about your extended family? I'm close to my mom and dad but not the rest of my family. We just really don't see things the same anymore, as I said before I come from a family of hard core bikers. Most of them have grown out of it but some of them haven't. We just don't really keep in touch. I moved several states away and don't get back to Cali much.

    I'm glad you're having fun. I've been around three or four blocks several times. I've probably got 50 more stories just as or more interesting, I just need to be asked the right questions.

    Agreed.

    To the Doc; What question should we have asked you? Answer that one.

    If you could kill someone, without ever being punished, who would it be ? And why ?

    If you had one million dollars, just one million, what would you spend it on ?

    What is the hardest song you've ever tried to learn (no need to have mastered it) ?

    What job did you want to do in life when you were 6 years old ?

    What has been your worst nightmare ?

    Do you have any phobias ?

    Describe the guitar of your dreams (CS, Relic, whatever) !

    Did you find my questions annoying ?
    There's so much gear I want that the whole list would make a highway to hell if it was ever written down.

I don't even entertain the thoughts really. It would definitely be a political killing, in a certain part of the world that has a certain climate, thats to political for this board though so I'll refrain from any further comments on the matter.

    If you had one million dollars, just one million, what would you spend it on ? Only one mill? Well, I'd have to say that I'd pay off my existing debt, buy the wife the new van and invest the rest in index funds. With that I could quit my job, that I hate and live off of the proceeds of the investments. I would probably start a little shop building guitars. I really like to build things, I'm kind of a perfectionist so I think I could do a pleasing job.


    What is the hardest song you've ever tried to learn (no need to have mastered it) ? All of them. I can only play a couple. I'm really not a great guitarist, I can't really even play an entire song. I know about ten chords and the entire pentatonic scale, thats it. I only had about six months of practicing about an hour a day. Now, I can only play about 5-10 minutes at a time before I have to stop.

    What job did you want to do in life when you were 6 years old ? I really wanted to be an entrepreneur. I don't like stupid people telling me what to do. When I was in grade school my teacher had us write our obituary. It was really funny all the things I said about myself. I was like a junior Warren Buffet, I had my hands into everything.

    What has been your worst nightmare ? Again, I really try not to think in these terms. But I quess if I had to come up with something, it would be that my kids didn't end up having a happy life. I hate to see the people I love suffer.

    Do you have any phobias ? Not really.

    Describe the guitar of your dreams (CS, Relic, whatever) ! It changes with my mood. Right at this moment I'm GAS'n hard for a CS Charvel. If you asked me the same question next month it'd probably be something different.

    Did you find my questions annoying ? No. Sometimes it's just hard top come up with how I'm feeling and put it into words. I usually draw on my past experiences to come up with the answers that I want, to truely portray how I feel.

    Favorite phallus shaped food?

    Top 5 animals you would like to be if you weren't human.

    If you could go on vacation right now, where would you go?

    You have your choice of rifle, shotgun, and handgun for the zombie apocalypse, what would you be three choices?

    1. A Stud Mustang
    2. A Golden Eagle
    3. A Bengal Tiger
    4. A Cheetah
    5. One of those special donkeys that perform down south of the border. You know what I mean?


    If you could go on vacation right now, where would you go? The white sands of Fiji. It's fall down there right now and the wife and I could try to get sand in places we didn't even know we had.

    You have your choice of rifle, shotgun, and handgun for the zombie apocalypse, what would you be three choices? Three 12 guage pumps with breacher barrels, it would greatly simplify the use and selection of ammo. Zombies are under the control of a Bokor so a few bullets aren't going to phase them, you'd need to blow off body parts for them to be terminated.

    Here's a funny story I came across.

    ONLY A MAN WOULD ATTEMPT THIS

    Just try reading this without laughing till you cry!!!

    Pocket Tazer Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife. A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this:

    Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse- sized tazer. The effects of the tazer were supposed to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety....??

    WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home. I loaded two AAA batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed.. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button and pressed it against a metal surface at the same time; I'd get the blue arc of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs.

    AWESOME!!!

    Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Julie what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave.

    Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn't be all that bad with only two triple-A batteries, right? There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking that I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target. I must admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second) and thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat. But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did want some assurance that it would work as advertised. Am I wrong?

    So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and tazer in another.. The directions said that a one-second burst would shock and disorient your assailant; a two-second burst was supposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; a three-second burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water. Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries.

    All the while I'm looking at this little device measuring about 5" long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference; pretty cute really and (loaded with two itsy, bitsy triple-A batteries) thinking to myself, 'no possible way!' What happened next is almost beyond description, but I'll do my best...?

    I'm sitting there alone, Gracie looking on with her head cocked to one side as to say, 'don't do it stupid,' reasoning that a one second burst from such a tiny little ole thing couldn't hurt all that bad. I decided to give myself a one second burst just for heck of it. I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and.
    AHHHHHHWWWWW SH*T. . . WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION . . . WTF!!!

    I'm pretty sure Jessie Ventura ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on the carpet, over and over and over again. I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, both nipples on fire, testicles nowhere to be found, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs? The cat was making meowing sounds I had never heard before, clinging to a picture frame hanging above the fireplace, obviously in an attempt to avoid getting slammed by my body flopping all over the living room.

    Note: If you ever feel compelled to 'mug' yourself with a tazer, one note of caution: there is no such thing as a one second burst when you zap yourself! You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor…A three second burst would be considered conservative?

    IT HURT LIKE HELLLLLLLLLLLL!!!

    A minute or so later (I can't be sure, as time was a relative thing at that point), I collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape. My bent reading glasses were on the mantel of the fireplace. The recliner was upside down and about 8 feet or so from where it originally was. My triceps, right thigh and both nipples were still twitching. My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs. I had no control over the drooling.

    Apparently I pissed and sh*t all over myself, but was too numb to know for sure and my sense of smell was gone. I saw a faint smoke cloud above my head which I believe came from my hair. I'm still looking for my testicles and I'm offering a significant reward for their safe return!

    P.S... My wife, can't stop laughing about my experience, loved the gift, and now regularly threatens me with it!

    If you think education is difficult, try being stupid!!!
