Pit asked me these 5 questions:
If you could do anything, what would you do?
I think I might ask for a sandwich.
If you could stop anything that has happened from happening, that would you stop?
This is hopelessly broad. I'm going to say the corporate distortion and inflation of copyright law, along with the use of technology to abolish practices once considered fair-use.
Describe yourself with a Contradiction
Can I have a place in the Evil Empire when it takes over?
There will be no human positions of power within the Empire. You may donate a brain-scan, subject to acceptance testing.
Where are my Shoes?
They're on your feet. Get over it. You are hereby restricted to 5 uses of this joke per visit of Lyndsay.
What pair of novelty socks are your favourite and why?
Assuming that you exclude the toe-socks, I think probably the Tigger ones, because they remind me of various friends. The One Ring ones are not bad either. I'd quite like to have Futurama socks, but I haven't seen them anywhere.
Where next for the moustache?
Well, I'll keep it on my face for the time being. I don't think it would look good anywhere else. I think I need a slightly different wardrobe if I'm to successfully deploy it on more occasions. Unfortunately I'm not very good or indeed very patient at trawling charity shops.
Do you think that direct action can change the Government's views on the ID card proposal?
Ah-ha. Now we get nasty. No, not directly. (Ha ha!) Nor should it. I think widespread disapproval of the scheme can change the Government's views. Direct action may be an appropriate tool to raise awareness or to express widespread disapproval, for certain values of "direct action".
What's the ten-year plan?
O to be that organised. I don't have a one year plan. I would hope that in ten years time I am working on something I enjoy and that will be useful and entertaining for a lot of people. I would like to still be somewhere in Glasgow. Depending on circumstances, I'd like to be in a long-term relationship, and remain undecided about having children.
Greatest regret of the last four years (didn't know you before then)?
Ummm... confidential. Sorry. Second greatest regret? Not trying harder to get a PhD position at Glasgow.
If you want, I'll try and think up five questions for anyone who asks.
