I've been waiting for the next installment of this. Here's some more random useless answers!

What is a dumb way you've hurt yourself?
> Either smashing my head against the wall or scratching the skin off my shoulders and back. Did that because it was painful and I couldn't stand the world around me and the way it operated. I still can't, but I don't hurt myself anymore thankfully.

What noise annoys you?
>Anyone bitching about something they did to themselves intentionally. Just the sound of their voices when they say it.

What is something you tend to exaggerate?
>My cynicism. I'm actually a deep and caring guy, it's just my defense.

What word(s) did you later realize you had been mispronouncing?
>Regice. I pronounced it "Regi-ice"

What do you typically have for breakfast?
>Breakfast? That's a thing?

What awesome "old person" name should make a comeback?
>Wallace.

Without saying what you did, why did you do it?
>Because it sedates me and keeps me from going nuts or talking someone's head off. I continue to do it just about every hour. Not because I'm "chemically addicted" or "do it because it's social", just because people stress me the fuck out. Don't worry, it's legal. In fact it's a top industry.

What's the most private thing you ever found about someone else by accident or from gossip?
>That one of my friends was in the closet. He fought with my other friend about it instead of accepting it. I don't talk to him anymore just for that, not about the fact that he's gay.

What's your favorite vegetable?
>Asparagus. Preferably sauteed in butter with some garlic. Makes a great side for beef.

What are things kids do that would be weird if an adult did them?
>Digging a hole in their back yard with a stick to try and get to China.

What type of food would you like to win a lifetime supply of?
>Beef Merlot. I love that stuff. Can I have asparagus as a side too?

What storyline/setting are you sick of seeing in movies?
>Guy meets girl, guy falls in love, relationship conflict over something stupid, then they get together in the end. Except in Naked gun. In those movies it's hilarious (probably because they're making fun of it.) That and anything with zombies. Most of us are already zombies going in to see zombie films so we can relate to our kind.

Out of all the standard household chores you hate or refuse to ____________
>Wash dishes, especially when I spent hours cooking. That's why I don't cook anymore. Plus I don't make that many dishes.

What's a petty "first-world problem" that tends to bother you?
>I have several. Any complaints over technology, wages/jobs, hurting someone's "feelings" over something either stupid or true (sometimes both), and how everybody has to have a god damn problem. Yes, my problem is that everyone feels the need to have problems (Or they think everyone but THEM has a problem).

If you could have any animal to guard your house/room what would it be?
>Wolves. Hands down I would have a few wolves.

Did anyone from your elementary/high school/college/work go on to do something scandalous or make a big name for themselves?
>No, everyone either went to college or got some shit job. Or both. Nothing major though.

What is a dumb way you've hurt yourself?
I was once having a joking “argument” with my friend, and went to “slap” her lightly to play along. Only somehow she slapped me really quick and hard in the face first. It was so fast I didn’t even see it. I stared at her dump-founded for a second, and she stared back at me looking somehow even more dumb-founded. Then it occurred to me: “Did I just slap myself in the face?”
“Yeah…” she said.
I’m kind of glad that I slapped myself instead of her, though. I wasn’t planning on making it actually hurt.

What noise annoys you?
Sometimes it can be annoying when people sing in public, or when people yell to someone across the room?

What is something you tend to exaggerate?
I exaggerate how difficult the things I need to do are in my head.

What word(s) did you later realize you had been mispronouncing?
Mischievous. I was adding a ee sound, saying it “mis-chee-vi-ous” instead of “mis-chi-vous.” It was an INTJ who corrected me—go figure. I tried saying it the correct way for a while, but it just sounded wrong. I went back to saying it the wrong way, because I’m pretty sure most people say it that way anyway.

What do you typically have for breakfast?
Lately it’s been Raisin Bran every morning. If I’m somewhere with a kitchen it’s usually eggs over medium.

What awesome "old person" name should make a comeback?
Myrtle

Without saying what you did, why did you do it?
It was sunny outside. I was tired. It seemed safe-enough, so I wasn’t worried about any creepers.

What's the most private thing you ever found about someone else by accident or from gossip?
Mainly hearing people’s sex stories (which I never really want to hear).

What's your favorite vegetable?
Tomatoes

What are things kids do that would be weird if an adult did them?
-Playing pretend/playing with toys
-Holding hands with friends of the same gender (wouldn’t necessarily be weird)
-talking to imaginary friends

What type of food would you like to win a lifetime supply of?
Chocolate oranges (orange shaped chocolate with a hint of orange flavoring). However if I had a lifetime supply of them there’s no way I’d have the self-control to not get fat.

What storyline/setting are you sick of seeing in movies?
Attractive mean girl (preferable if blonde) is dating/or likes attractive nice guy. Unpopular (or new girl) likes said guy. She is average-looking (but somehow actually really attractive [preferable if brunette]). Average/unpopular girl gets the trophy (attractive nice guy), so we know that she won. Yay!

Out of all the standard household chores you hate or refuse to ____________
Cooking—it never goes well.

What's a petty "first-world problem" that tends to bother you?
“I’m hungry!”
“Then eat something.”
“But I don’t feel likely eating anything!”
Internally: then please shut up about it.

If you could have any animal to guard your house/room what would it be?
A wolf

Did anyone from your elementary/high school/college/work go on to do something scandalous or make a big name for themselves?
Apparently a guy I went to high school with is a stripper now.

What is a dumb way you've hurt yourself?
It's not "a" but "are"
See:
Biting my own tongue
Bumping my foot or arm against chairs, tables, or hard corners

What noise annoys you?
Styrofoam against styrofoam
Chalk screeching on blackboard
Fork or knife scratched against plate
*shudders just remembering the goosebumps I get from those*

What is something you tend to exaggerate?
My imagination? I tend to think up the worst (though often exaggerated) scenarios in my head. My feelings of exhaustion, sadness, or stress. Though now that I think about it, it's my feelings in general because it's not just negative feelings I exaggerate but my positive ones too - hence fangirling and all that, haha.

What word(s) did you later realize you had been mispronouncing?
Frappe. I used to pronounce it like rape except with a "ffff" sound at the front. Quite embarrassing when I was indirectly corrected for it when the waiter said the word himself. *facepalm*

What do you typically have for breakfast?
Bread, savoury or sweet, get in my belly! With a toss between coffee or tea as the drink, though coffee usually wins.

What awesome "old person" name should make a comeback?
Petra or Penelope, I can't choose. Do those sound "old person" enough though?

Without saying what you did, why did you do it?
I had time to kill, and it means more self-reflection.

What's the most private thing you ever found about someone else by accident or from gossip?
People's sex stories. Just...Keep them to yourselves, thanks. There are some things you CAN share and maybe we should know, but others... Not so much.

What's your favorite vegetable?
Cabbage. NOM. NOM. NOM. NOM. NOM.

What are things kids do that would be weird if an adult did them?
Having imaginary friends
Playing with stuffed toys/plushies
Showing affection (towards the same gender)

What type of food would you like to win a lifetime supply of?
Rice. I'm quite simple like that.

What storyline/setting are you sick of seeing in movies?
The must-have kiss scene between the hero and main female character, AND everything else slows down. Hello? I thought you're busy saving the world around here?

Poor girl's life gets a 180 and becomes so pretty, HOMIGOD the catch? With help from a rich guy also aka the guy she falls in love with, or him first, whichever. THE IRONY.

Out of all the standard household chores you hate or refuse to ____________
Cleaning the shower, the soap stains are pain in the arse.

What's a petty "first-world problem" that tends to bother you?
That you can't have a "life" outside of a smartphone/Internet. "It's like oxygen", or "I can't live without Internet/smarpthone" though this is increasingly difficult and something we can't control as you pretty much can't do anything without Internet or smartphone these days: e-commerce or shopping/online shopping, e-government/voting online, etc.

If you could have any animal to guard your house/room what would it be?
Can I resurrect dinosaurs and bring back a T-rex?

Did anyone from your elementary/high school/college/work go on to do something scandalous or make a big name for themselves?
A high school classmate of mine has been making a name for himself as a DJ, also teaching people now! He's talked about wanting to be a DJ since then, so I'm very happy that he's achieving his dream :)

What is a dumb way you've hurt yourself?> Emotionally, always expecting too much from others when I was a teenager. (general feeler stuff) - Physically, I think it has to be the time I accidentally dropped my curling iron on my bare skin. Stubbing my toe on stuff kills too :laughing:

What noise annoys you?
> Others smacking their lips when they eat. I didn't notice this until my ISTJ pointed it out :(

What is something you tend to exaggerate?
> Nothing specific - i tend to use exaggeration sometimes when I joke about things.

What word(s) did you later realize you had been mispronouncing?
> When I had fish as pets and I'd read about different species, I couldn't figure out how to pronounce Cichlid haha

What do you typically have for breakfast?
> A cup of coffee or a huge glass of milk.

What awesome "old person" name should make a comeback?
> I don't really know, I tend to be more of a fan of unusual names rather than the old classics. Though some of the old classics like Elizabeth, Grace, Margaret etc. are nice too.

Without saying what you did, why did you do it?
> Because it's a relaxing album, and as per usual, I am procrastinating.

What's the most private thing you ever found about someone else by accident or from gossip?
> I know things about Philip's co workers that I shouldn't because I've never met them, just because they always tell him stuff he really does not need to know and then he tells me. Haha

What's your favorite vegetable?
> I just love vegetables, it would be easier to ask me what I don't like. For the record the answer is swede/cabbage/beetroot.

What are things kids do that would be weird if an adult did them?
> Talk to imaginary people - as far as I know you would get put in some kind of facility if you did that as an adult. :laughing:

What type of food would you like to win a lifetime supply of?
> Salad. It's probably a boring choice but I love salad. I wouldnt pick anything fatty that I like because I would eat it like there's no tomorrow.

What storyline/setting are you sick of seeing in movies?
> It depends what mood I'm in as to what kind of movie i'd consider watching. It's all subjective really. Sometimes plot convenience is pretty annoying.

Out of all the standard household chores you hate or refuse to ____________
> I can't refuse anything really, i'm in charge of maintaining the house since i'm a modern day house - wife. I tend to enjoy things like that anyway since I like organizing things.

What's a petty "first-world problem" that tends to bother you?
> People that have absolutely no idea how lucky they are. For example, I probably wont get to have a son in my lifetime, and the amount of times my sister in law whines about having two boys is ridiculous. Just be happy you have healthy children for goodness' sake.

If you could have any animal to guard your house/room what would it be?
> I'd love a dog, but they are pretty costly.

Did anyone from your elementary/high school/college/work go on to do something scandalous or make a big name for themselves?> Not really. Most of them had a baby as soon as they left school without really having any stability and are now single parents - which is ironic because most of them used to tell me that I would end up alone, and i'm the one who's been in a happy relationship for 3 years and so forth. Some of them died too which is really unfortunate. I think only one or two actually made a life for themselves.

What is a dumb way you've hurt yourself?
>At the beginning of the year I twisted my ankle while trying to do a leap while dancing. Reality check - I'm not a ballerina!


When I was younger, I used to make movies with my sister and our friends. Well one time we were making this movie called, "Zones" where we go in and out of different zones. I guess the closets were the portals. Every time we were leaving a zone for some reason I thought I had to make it dramatic by falling into the "portal" even though the camera wasn't catching that. They all made fun of me for it. I got a nice rug burn for my efforts.


What noise annoys you?
>Snoring


What is something you tend to exaggerate?
>My mistakes. I tend to blow them out of proportion.


What word(s) did you later realize you had been mispronouncing?
>When I was little, I pronounced "church" without the "r" so "chuch" and I thought "yesterday" was "lasterday." I think lasterday makes more sense.


What do you typically have for breakfast?
>Fresh juice (half a cucumber, 2 green apples, 1 lime and some kale) - sometimes with a green energy bar.


What awesome "old person" name should make a comeback?
>Jasper


Without saying what you did, why did you do it?
>Because everyone else was doing it, mom!


What's the most private thing you ever found about someone else by accident or from gossip?
>It's hard for me to remember because not much surprises me. I guess TMI stuff my mom has told me about my dad. She is the Queen of TMI. And I'm sure she's told other people TMI about me as well *cringes*


What's your favorite vegetable?
>It depends what I'm in the mood for...Artichokes, broccoli, zucchini, onions...I guess those are my favorites.


What are things kids do that would be weird if an adult did them?
>"Pardon me. I seem to have accidentally pooped in my pants."


What type of food would you like to win a lifetime supply of?
>Produce. That would make my life easier.


What storyline/setting are you sick of seeing in movies?
>(Setting) I get annoyed when they ruin a movie with light-hardheartedness. Example would be Maleficent. Had the potential to be good but nope. Tragedy just adds more meaning to a movie. I don't like it when it feels like there's no consequences whatsoever in the world. Everything is too easy. Not "dark" enough. Boring.


Out of all the standard household chores you hate or refuse to ____________
>Ugh, I hate cleaning the fridge. It grosses me out. I think I'm forever traumatized by that one time we moved into a house we were renting and the fridge was full of black mold. I still cleaned it though. I guess there's nothing I will refuse. I'd just rather not be the one to do it.


What's a petty "first-world problem" that tends to bother you?
>I have too much stuff! or.... There's too many choices! Shoot me! I'll never be able to decide!


If you could have any animal to guard your house/room what would it be?
>How about swans? Those things are vicious. So long as they wouldn't attack me while I'm trying to leave the place....maybe lions.


Did anyone from your elementary/high school/college/work go on to do something scandalous or make a big name for themselves?
>Not that I know of but it's not like I keep in touch with any of them - so I wouldn't know.

What is a dumb way you've hurt yourself?
Ran barefoot through a field when I was about 8 or 9...ended up treading on a really sharp twig...let's just leave it there. :L

What noise annoys you?
Other people eating loudly, by people I mean my dad.

What is something you tend to exaggerate?
Usually the little things, that really annoy me.

Hyperbole, used to pronounce it 'hyper-bowl'. xD

What do you typically have for breakfast?
...nothing, oops

What awesome "old person" name should make a comeback?
Valerie.

Without saying what you did, why did you do it?
Because I just wanted to be helped, by the only person who I ever trusted and became so attached to.

What's the most private thing you ever found about someone else by accident or from gossip?
Not sure if I should say, I keep secrets. :p
...then again, I don't like her and it's not like she's ever going to see this. In my last year of school, I found out my bully was really severely depressed when she started bullying me. But tbh I worked it out by myself, just confirmed it with a friend of hers.

What's your favorite vegetable?
Broccoli.

What are things kids do that would be weird if an adult did them?
Probably screaming and crying and demanding food in public.

What type of food would you like to win a lifetime supply of?
My sister's homemade honey cookies. omgggg

What storyline/setting are you sick of seeing in movies?
The whole "we are all locked away in a booby-trapped haunted mansion where monsters are going to come and eat us alive ahh" horror film storyline. I mean, wtf, one too many times. Come up with something innovatively scary.

Out of all the standard household chores you hate or refuse to ____________
Wash up dishes. Getting other people's old food on my hands...NO.

What's a petty "first-world problem" that tends to bother you?
"I'm so annoyed, I only got an iPod for this Christmas, when I wanted the brand new iPad!" Like, at least you got something valuable, some people don't even get a crumb for Christmas.

If you could have any animal to guard your house/room what would it be?
A big dog, one that is quiet and doesn't really bark, but looks threatening to anyone who dares try and enter.

Did anyone from your elementary/high school/college/work go on to do something scandalous or make a big name for themselves?
Nothing massive...but a guy from the year above me at high school (and now the same year as me at college) did all sorts of things, like went on The Voice and got offered a record deal by Simon Cowell.

When one purees hot soup in a blender, be sure the top is tightly secured. Third degree burns are no bueno, neither is soup all over the kitchen walls and floor.

What noise annoys you?
Knuckles cracking.

What is something you tend to exaggerate?
How many miles I can run . . . =X

What word(s) did you later realize you had been mispronouncing?

Oh, tons. Words that you only read in books but have never heard it pronounced outloud like:

"Treacle" and "percolate" come to mind.

What do you typically have for breakfast?
Cheerios with almond milk or eggs.

What awesome "old person" name should make a comeback?
Frances and Francis. I've always liked the name Frances. We need more Geoff's too. Boys should be called Leslie and Nancy again.

Not a fan of gossip. Nothing comes to mind now.

Brussel sprouts surprisingly.

Sushi

Terrorist action films. Stop otherizing/demonizing people.

I know a college classmate who went on to become a Rhodes Scholar and became an Emergency Room doctor at Mass General and has appeared on CNN and written stories for NPR. Scandalous, not that I know of.
