Feel free to quench your curiosity here. I may not answer all questions, but I will make an honest effort to do so. If I am not prepared to answer one, I will give an explanation such as it being too personal.

I see Scarletrose you are a Kiwi. I'm in Tasmania and we feel here, New Zealanders are like cousins. How do you feel about Australians?

What is your favourite topic of discussion?

It is difficult to think of a particular topic. Perhaps the predominant one would be the relationship between the social and cultural. It is hard to say though. This question had me quite stumped.

Who's your favorite author?

I am not really sure who my favourite writer is. I will however provide a list of ten writers I quite like in no particular order.

Noam Chomsky,
Ashley Montagu,
Bronislaw Malinowski,
Andrew Heywood,
Lucy Mair,
Jeffery Sluka,
Richard Lewontin,
Renato Rosaldo,
Ghassan Hage,
and Marvin Harris.

Why did you join this forum?

Hanako Ikezawa told me to join. xD

I see Scarletrose you are a Kiwi. I'm in Tasmania and we feel here, New Zealanders are like cousins. How do you feel about Australians?

There is certainly a lot more closeness compared to how Kiwis relate to the rest of the world. I am typically quite happy when I notice there are Australians on a forum I have joined.

As much as I do not like violence I must say I was saddened to hear this morning the death of 3 more New Zealand troops in Afghanistan. What is your take on NZ involvement in foreign wars? I had always thought of NZ being one of the world's more advanced country's when it came to social and political issues.

A trip to go into orbit for a while? I think I would be extremely happy to accept such a prize.

Are you into sports? If you are then what are your favourite sports?

I kind of fell out of following sports for a while. My favourite sport to watch is Rugby. This season I am going to get back into following the ITM cup and supporting my team, the Auckland Blues. I did follow the most recent rugby world cup though. As for playing sports, no. The closest I get to playing sports is pool. I am quite sure this does not qualify as the kind of sports you had in mind.

There are times when I both understand the value in NZ involvement in international engagements and support it quite strongly. However I do not support the actions when they appear to be colonial in nature. Unfortunately many of our engagements that we participated have been of this nature.

What is yor favourite song? Past and present?

My favourite song tends to typically be a flavour of the moment thing and can change quite quickly. A song which I have quite liked for a long time though would be "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen. At the moment it is possibly Sorry by Buckcherry.

Do you like hot dogs?

Yes. I like both American Hot dogs and hot dogs.

Did you know that there is provision in the Australian constitution for New Zealand to be a state of Australia?

I was not aware of this provision. I only knew as far as a governor of Tasmania I believe attempting to purchase New Zealand in the nineteenth century.

Do you listen to any music from TV shows?

Yes, I can occasionally get addicted to Television themes.

Do you go out on Friday or Saturday nights?

Friday nights on rare occasions. It has been a long time since I have though. Two major reasons for this. One would be the person who organized the outings moved to another city. The other is that I like going out to play pool and drink with co-workers. Due to the staffing levels we have been finishing work quite late on Friday nights. Sometimes as late as 1am (when starting at 11am or earlier!). This obviously makes one too tried to go out. Am going to look at going out on a Friday at some point in the near future. As for Saturday nights, I have work on Sundays so am unable to do so.

You certainly have a busy work schedule. May I ask what you work entails?
