: 1) Howard Zinn or Noam Chomsky?
Chomsky, I'm not very familiar with Zinn
: 2) Pot, Booze, or Niether?
: 3) Favorite Card Game:
Canasta. I've only played it twice and have since forgotten how but it was enjoyable.
: 4) Would you sacrifice you life to erase humanity's sins (akin to Mr. Christ himself)? Why or Why not?
Sin does not exist. But if sacrificing myself made humanity more capable of existing as a global society, I would do it. The main problems of humans are that we're A) not particularly intelligent and B) not evolutionarily equipped to handle large populations. Racism, xenophobia, ethnocentrism, etc. are manifestations of these weaknesses.
: 5) Swearing: a) never do it b) only when necessary c)Regularly c) all the fucking time!
I pepper my language with foulness but do not overuse them. I prefer my curses to retain some meaning.
: 6) How many homosexuals do you personally know?
10 or 15 who've come out, so to speak, perhaps more than that.
: 7) Was '1984' required reading in your high school? Do you think it should be?
It certainly should be and the issues it raises should be required discussion. My high school lit was absolutely atrocious. When I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all.
: 8) Bush, Kerry, Nader, or Fica?
Kerry. The Green party fits me best but the essence of politics is compromise (which Nader voters refuse to accept) and I will therefore vote Kerry. For the sake of humanity, Bush must not be elected nor rethieve this election.
