Question 1:- Looks like we’re heading for a nuclear apocalypse how would you spend the final days?
I'd spending it drinking, smoking and eating lots of salty snacks, because alcohol is used to preserve meat, smoking is used to preserve meat, and salt is used to preserve meat … and the human body is made of meat. So it's my best shot at survival when you look at things objectively.
A whole new slant to survival- thank you!
Question 2:- When it comes to writing what are the excuses you use not to sit down and write?
Whatever comes to hand. My favorite is, “I need to promote my books!” which always turns out to involve looking at porn on the Internet, somehow. Some scientist should conduct a study on how that happens…
Now your bringing a whole new slant to promotion…
Question 3:- What teacher inspired you A):-laugh in the face of adversity, B) hide in the face of adversity c) or just how to spell it properly?
Oddly enough a math teacher who taught us how compound interest works. The teacher's union was debating taking out a loan for some purpose or other and somebody said, “We'll never pay it back, so go ahead and get the loan … they can bill us, but you can't get water from a stone.” And then the math teacher showed us how a loan company uses compound interest to get water from stones. I have no idea how compound interest works, but I know that corporations can use math to get water from stones. So I learned about fear in the face of adversity, because you really don't want to mess with anything with powers like that.
A new slant on maths…
Question 4:- What school friend inspired A) you to something bad, b) do something good and, c) give up on the human race (momentarily)
