    And I would be Leonardo DiCaprio


    Or Cary Grant. Actually there are a lot of great male actors who I think are a combination of gorgeous and interesting.

    Yeah I did see her in lost in translation. Its not my favorite film but I do like Scarlett as an actress, she comes across as so sweet all the time it would be interesting to see her cast as something a little more hard. I think I prefer Natalie Portman, she seems to have more range and she's just as beautiful.

    Check out the weird face shape shifting:

    Right now? Eating breakfast. Usually a protein shake that consists of 2 tbsp of flax seads, 1 scoop of protein powder, 7 baby carrots, 1/3 cup blueberries, 3 medium strawberries, 1/2 cup soy milk, 1 cup water. Blended on high for a minute. It's filling and--obviously--pretty darned good for you.

    Long term? Building wealth. This isn't some quest driven by greed. It's driven by the knowledge that in this world freedom to do the things we want (as well as the ability to retire in comfort and die without pain) comes with a price tag. I fully intend on being able to pay that bill.

    Aside from the above mentioned priorities? I love to travel. Next year I'm going somewhere in Europe or Turkey. After that I'd like to go to Southeast Asia (perhaps, Thailand and/or Vietnam).

    Work. My boyfriend. My family. Health. My home. Warm weather (I hate the cold). Good exercise. Television. Internet Access. Air. Food. Running water. Heating & air conditioning. My car. Good sex. My cats and dog.

    Nobody's perfect!

    Ugh. Really, neither. . . but Depp sounds a lot more interesting.

    I know little about either. Though, Gable looks a little more attractive.

    BUTLER!!! Both men are good looking, but Butler is hot as hell. Plus (IIRC), Butler isn't a total prick. Wow. I would probably leave my happy home for him.

    Easy. Judy Dench. She's amazing.


    No. Though, I've been right near there to Cádiz and Sta. Maria. I hitch-hiked from the straights to Bilbao the summer of '94.

    It wasn't rude. I actually thought it was an interesting question.

    You've had an interesting life. Sound like it would make a good movie. Mine has been much more linear. Anyway, a lot of obvious questions have already been asked. So let's see what I can come up with:

    1 Top 5 Favorite Movies

    2. Favorite Mark Walburg movie. Have you seen Fear?

    3. Top 5 US presidents.

    4. Female Celebrity you'd "switch teams" for? Or maybe which one would you sleep with if you had to either watch a Nick Cage marathon or have sex with the female celebrity of your choice?

    5. Do you have a "list" of celebrities you have carte blanche to have sex with should the opportunity ever arise (that's very common with heteros) and, if so, who's on it? My wife's list consists of Brian Setzer. My list has included Phoebe Cates ever since I saw this scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

    6. How many speeding tickets have you had in your life?

    7. Ever been in jail?

    8. A genie grants you three wishes, witha ban on the "more wishes" type wish. What do you wish for?

    9. An asteroid is heading for earth and will wipe out all life within twelve hours. What do you do?

    10. Fzvorite Band

    11. Favorite Philosopher

    Superstring: Easy. Judy Dench. She's amazing.

    Well I am shocked! Wasn't expecting that and it's a damn good answer. Smart, talented and god if only its possible to age as well as she has.

    This one is always difficult because I'm always looking for that movie that just AMAZES me and there are few. For example "Return of the King", "Dune" (Lynch version) and "Schlindler's List" amazed me when I first saw them, but I can't sit through them over and over. Once was enough. But there are movies that didn't knock my socks off, but I can watch anytime, anywhere. So, I guess my definition of "top" movie is one that I can sit through, over and over again, and enjoy each time.

    1 - "The Matrix"
    2 - "Michael Clayton"
    3 - "Ocean's 11" (and, no, I not all that fond of Clooney, but he does pick good roles)
    4 - "The Bourne Supremacy" (though, any of the "Bourne" movies will do)
    5 - "The Planet of the Apes" (original)

    [honorable mentions]
    6 - "Aliens"
    7 - "Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan"
    8 - "The Fifth Element"
    9 - "Casino Royale"
    10 - "Dune" (Lynch Version)

    Easy. "The Departed". Though, anything with Wahlberg in it is good. I loved "The Big Hit" and "Shooter". Wahlberg was, as I mentioned, one of those guys (early in my puberty) that made me think, "Uh, I'm not like other guys. . . "

    1 - Abraham Lincoln - Preserved the union.

    2 - George Washington - Could have been king. Very flawed, but his contributions were, ultimately, to the benefit of the nation.

    3 - Teddy Roosavelt - A liberal (Republicans were the liberals in his day). Yes, a liberal, and one of the best kinds. He was the first president, for better or worse, who saw the federal government as a tool for social good within the nation.

    4 - John Adams - Sucked as a president. But overall, one of the best men to ever occupy the office (he believed, tentatively, in suffrage for women [a full 150ish years before it became law], and was a paragon of fiscal virtue and cultural equality). History's view of him is changing, especially thanks to McCullough's research on him.

    5 - Thomas Jefferson - One of the less-good of the early men to occupy the office, but ended up being one of the best presidents overall; doubled the size of the nation and set up many of the institutions that helped make the USA great.

    None. I'm gay. There are plenty of hot women out there, but they just don't give me a woody. Any male celebrities you'd "switch sides" for? Probably none. Nope. Gash ain't my thing.

    Do you want them in order alphabetically, BMI, chronologically by birth date, or in order of my willingness to stalk? But really:

    Edgar Ramirez
    Gerard Butler
    Dave Salmoni
    Jamie Bamber
    Bear Grylls
    Vin Diesel
    Mark Wahlberg
    Channing Tatum
    Ryan Bader

    I admit, I have a thing for dumb-jock-meat-head type men.

    None. The only "moving" violation I ever got was for running a stop sign five years ago. 14 years ago I did get my license suspended for driving un-insured (I was pulled over for expired tags). I then, like the dumb kid that I was, drove without a license and got caught--again--and had my license suspended for five years. I still drove, just in AZ and not Ohio until my suspension was over.

    For driving under suspended license when I was 20. In Arizona I was at "The River" (tubing on the Salt River is their equivalent of going to the beach), and brought bottled beer with me (which is illegal because of the possibility of broken glass + rocky river banks + bare feet + septic water = very bad). They actually paddy-wagoned all of us to jail (we were totally blitzed) and I spent five hours in the slammer 'till my room-mate bailed me out.

    1 - I'd wish I had gone to med school and become an orthopedic surgeon as was my desire through my childhood. It still brings me to tears thinking about the time wasted in my early 20's. I got great grades in school, but once out, I puttered about the country, burning through my inheritance, fooling myself into believing that it would never end. It did.

    2 - I'd wish for money. I'd love to spend a few years traveling. How much money? Uh. A billion would be good.

    3 - I'd wish for something (though I don't know the words) like: "the best schools in the world and a balanced federal budget in the USA" (can I combine those wishes?). Those two issues solved, I think that most other issues would be reduced (poverty, crime, etc).

    I'd take my boyfriend to the Rocky River Reservation (there's a spot that tranquil and relatively undisturbed where I go to to fish, swim, hang out; it's my place of Zen) and spend the last hours with him.

    HIM. From Finland.

    Hmmmmm. Hobbes. To quote Wiki: "His 1651 book Leviathan established the foundation for most of Western political philosophy from the perspective of social contract theory."

    Indeed. She's a top notch actor and, from what friend (who's an American expat living in London) says, she's really the nicest woman in real life too (apparently he's met her on a number of occasions, having worked at Harrods for eons.

    A gay friend of mine is such a big Madona fan he's said he'd sleep with her if he had the chance, and he's pretty much a flamer. He was probably just joking, but he is a huge Madona fan. He spent like $800 on tickets the last time she was in the area.
    Wow. I've had so many speeding tickets I've lost count. I love to drive fast. Plus my first car was a bright orange mustang. It was a police magnet. I've managed to never lose my licence, except for one time I got it suspended for failure to appear in court. I got a ticket on a highway and the court date was in some rinky dink town I'd never heard of. Back then I would always go to court to contest the ticket. I actually managed to get out of quite a few of them. Anyway, due to my poor sense of direction, I got lost and couldn't find the place. So my license was suspended, but all I had to do was pay a fine to get it back..
    Ive always thought a magic wallet that couldn't be lost or stolen and was never empty no matter how much money I took out of it would be nice..
    Not bad. A noble wish.
    Are you a fan of Viva La Bam? That's where I first heard of HIM.
  12. superstring01 Moderator

    Eeeew. No. I do like her music. It does have some value, but all in all, she should retire and take care of her kids.

    Look. I love speeding as much as the next guy, but I just don't do it. Especially recently as I've adopted the philosophy of, "Where am I going that I need to risk so much to get there 60 seconds earlier." I've gone from being a stressed-out raged-crazed driver to. . . well, do an old man. But I don't get tickets and I do find driving a bit more peaceful.


    Well, the first two were all about me, so the third one had to be something noble!

    I'm not not a fan. I have seen the show twice. I've known about him for five years. It's how I met--well, one of the reasons we met--my boyfriend.

    If you were able to adopt a kid, and let's assume you wanted to, what characteristics would you look for ? And don't say you won't because we all know that we all would.
  14. superstring01 Moderator

    I think I'd be a pretty good dad to a son. Setting aside the obvious undesirable traits (abnormalities and disease), I think I'd be okay with whatever he brought to the table.

  15. madanthonywayne Morning in America Registered Senior Member

    After getting three tickets in one year and having to spend a couple grand on lawyers to avoid losing my license, I've taken to setting the cruise control for 7 miles over the limit on highway trips. I've almost made it a year now without a ticket!
    I've always considered it an interesting thought experiment to come up with a wish where the genie/devil/whoever couldn't screw you.
  16. Challenger78 Valued Senior Member

    Really. Ok, so obviously you wouldn't want someone with down syndrome, because they should be left to trained carers. But you would not pick one of a certain skin colour?/Tone/bearing/attitude?
  17. superstring01 Moderator

    I don't have an issue with race. I guess I'd want a smart kid. Orientation wouldn't matter. I mean, really, if I had to use my imagination, I guess I see myself with a white kid who's a total genius. But that's just ridiculous, so I think that any healthy kid would be okay.
