Do you think parents should have the right to post public pictures and videos of their children on the Internet? Why or why not?
I thin that as long as the parent treats the child well, and doesn't molest them or shoot porn, it's okay for them to post photographs. However, i don't really understand the need to post EVERY single picture you ever take.
More than stressful, I find the holiday season extremely depressing. It reminds me of how alone I am, and what a worthless plight my life is. Oh, that's cheery. Well, at the same time, vacation is also relaxing because it provides a chance to catch up on work and sleep.
After all the commercial hype and build up, do you ever feel a sense of let-down right after the holidays? Why or why not?
I find the holidays very lonely, in that I have no friends and almost no family. While i am lucky that i still have my parents, I wish that i had more people in my life. I find it inordinately depressing to cook for just two other people. However, for me, this year takes the cake in specialness when my dad spent New Years eve in a hospital room, and I spend it downstairs in the ER. That was awesome.
What goals do you hope to achieve by the end of this year?
Don't want to land myself in another mental hospital. Heh, but yeah, i also need to work on my concentration and organize my life.
Are there any subjects you either embrace or totally avoid talking about when you meet someone new?
I have a love-hate relationship with discussing religion and politics. I am a vocal athiest and i am very liberal. If i gauge that a new person won't be offended, sometimes i discuss that. Also, if I strongly dislike a new acquaintance upon first impression, I often find myself trying to offend them with my beliefs. Yeah, I'm hard headed, I know.
How do you think aliens would regard our society? If an alien ship landed in your backyard, would you run away or bring a bundt cake?
An alien would see a backwards society, given that it even had similar senses to ours. I believe that any alien life would be completely unrecognizable, and would not understand our culture, in much the same way that we would not understand theirs.
What is the best returning TV show of 2010? How long before it jumps the shark?
I'd say Fringe is my favorite, and I think it'll hang on for a bit. Doctor Who should be promising, at least until they pick a twelfth doctor. I do believe that the return of Torchwood will suck, cause they're moving from Cardiff to states. Ahh well.
