Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says:
Unter dieser Rufnummer nennt ihnen die Deutsche Telekom – that was the second closest book in fact, as the closest on was an atlas.
Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?
The sugar dispenser standing on the cable going from the wireless network card to the outside antenna. The cable seems to be slightly broken and has to be fixed in a certain position to work properly.
What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Some music television right now and while making a cake. Bad.
Without looking, guess what time it is:
Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?
With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
The TV, playing bad music; the dishwasher; some traffic outside. And I don't hear my computer.
When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
The Grouch in the trash can.If the balcony counts as outside: About an hour ago to get something from there. If it doesn't: Yesterday evening to empty the trash.
Before you came to this website, what did you look at?
What are you wearing?
Black jeans and a long sleeve shirt of an unnamable colour.
Did you dream last night?
I think so. But I can't remember.
When did you last laugh?
Sometime during the weekend.
What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Cupboards with crockery and food on the left. A shelf with more of the same straight ahead. Hint: I am in the kitchen. Another shelf with other kitchen essentials such as an encyclopædia or an atlas to the right – as is my James Dean poster. Behind me there are our indicators who has to clean...
Seen anything weird lately?
Nothing unusual here, officer.
What is the last film you saw?
Probably Dolls a while ago. Plus perhaps fractions of a few bad films on telly in between.
If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
A record player, a nice meal and an around-the-world ticket. Though, not necessarily in that order.
If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
This sounds like I can't go for the millions in this question. A thing I'd like is making sure that we are governed for our good by smart people rather than the ones who have the stubbornness and money to make it into public office. If that's asking too much, I'll have more sunshine, please.
Do you like to dance?
Depends on what the word 'dance' is supposed to mean.
Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
This seems to be a hard question even for people who have spent a lot of time thinking about it. I might be tempted to go for a French or Scandinavian name. But something that's not tacky or triggers ridicule.
Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
Same here, although I do like short names and quite like Jan or perhaps, Yann. I though Gary is quite a cool name as well. Definitely a short name.
Would you ever consider living abroad?
I am considering that permanently. Destinations could be France or Japan. But I might be lured almost anywhere by a sufficiently big city.

Trackback “No wrong answers” from allTheHeroesAreDead.com weblog:

Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says: “Olen jostain syystä viehättynyt listoihin. Listojen kirjoittaminen on hyvä juttu. Tulen laatimaan niitä lähitulevaisuudessa paljonkin. Teen nytkin yhden.” -Supernaiiv…
