1. Why did you friend me?
Lessee, you were on BrandNewGun's friends list, you disagreed with me in a logical and reasonable way (while still being obviously passionate about them) and you're both interesting and smart.
Oh, and I'm incapable of of seeing your LJ name without imagining hot lesbian sex, but you knew that, right?
2. You're about the only person I know who has their real address published in the user info of your journal: why?
So that people can find me. When I started this LiveJournal I made a conscious decision to throw away my 'masks', used my real name as a username for pretty much the first time ever and am about as open about things as I can be (barring the occasional work-related post, which obviously go friends only). Havign done so, and having given out my phone/address to a few people since then, and because a 10 second search online will turn them up anyway, I didn't see any reason not to make myself fairly public. I have a general trust in people, and I'm fairly picky about my LJ friends, and so far I've had no reason to think there'll be a problem with my address being there.
3. With special reference to deep-fried puppies, is there anything you wouldn't eat?
I hate: cheese, nuts, liver and a few other things (most things that are a recognisable 'organ' rather than a slab of meat). But I suspect that wasn't the question you were asking. I wouldn't eat anything above a certain level of sentience - dogs, dolphins, elephants,etc.. Horses are on the borderline, deer just below the borderline and sheep/cows are a fair bit below. Chickens/turkeys are a long way below and broccoli is somewhere deep in the fathoms of munchability. Of course, in a 'starving to death' situation, all bets are off.
4. You have been appointed Benevolent Dictator for Europe for a five-year span. What do you want to accomplish over those five years?
Legalise and regulate drugs and prostitution, phase in Universal Benefit, get rid of the CAP, radically revamp the education system, persuade OPEC to move to the Euro, fund a study into how we can ameliorate the problems with having the different economic areas all on the same interest rate/inflation, increase the levels of 'pure' research, get renewable energy sorted out, put in place a framework to make people feel that they have a connection to their government, remove business and software patents, reduce copyright to the length of the author's lifetime (or less, this needs more study), get several films that I want to see made and have fabulous parties at my palace with various people that I've always wanted to meet.
5. Which do you think is going to be sillier: The Hulk or Pirates of the Carribean?
Pirates of the Carribean. Ang Lee, a director I respect very much for "Sense and Sensibility", "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman" and "The Ice Storm" says that The Hulk will be a greek tragedy about the power of Rage and our relationship with our parents. With kickass CGI.
Pirates... on the other hand, will be a fabulous romp with an amazing cast hamming it up beyond belief.
If anyone hasn't been interviewed yet, but wants to be, let me know.
