Q: What unsuccessful/obsolete technology or product do you miss the most?


Hard to answer, since I will go out of my way to use something if I can. I have recently gone back to using film instead of digital, for a number of reasons. While you can still get film (and some of it very nice), there are tons of older types of films that are WAY out of production, and any remaining are most likely shit. That's kinda painful.

Also, I wish flat screens played nicely w/ 15khz RGB, now that I'm having a hard time keeping around a 28" RGB arcade moniter that gets VERY little play. They just don't though, which makes the decision much harder.

Q: What's the rough estimate of the size of your digital files that you back up. Don't include porn and pirated TV which can be easily replaced. Videos, pictures, artwork, source code... shit like that.

Its one of the pieces of the boss that break apart and explode when you defeat it.

Which ending is stranger? Metal Black or Acrobat Mission?

Actually I can make sense out of both endings but if I have to pick one I take Acrobat Mission for the picture of Hitler.

A: Yes, all wheels are biased, you need enough samples to build a probability distribution, same reasons casinos switch around roulette regularly, and throw out roulette that have any identifying marks.
Q: why male models?

A: not sure how ridiculous, but definitely stupid. I had my head up my ass on my ride into work. Ran a few read lights (not a huge deal here apparently) but also had to do the skidding stop as to not hit pedestrians.

Q: What was your longest binge watch of a single TV show. (Episodes & time it took)

A: Something like 5+ years ago I marathoned GTO all the way through. So, 43 episodes, something like 26 hours?
I don't think I'll ever beat that, really.

Q: What is your favorite, #1 of all time, NES/Famicom game, and why?

What an incredibly hard question...

A: As a kid my answer would have been Final Fantasy 1, for my six year old self it may as well have been Skyrim. I think the minimalism of 8-bit RPGs really lets you use your imagination to fill out the world and plot, and I still appreciate them to this day.

But now?

I guess probably Golgo 13: Top Secret Mission. I know it's plagued with problems, but there's such a huge scope to the adventure and so much content. How many NES games let you graphically snipe a mans brains out from a helicopter and then get laid in an 8-bit hotel room.

Q: What was the first game you ever completed?

A: Oh god, Hokuto no Ken without a question. Berserk is like Naruto with good art at this point. Used to love it, but now just seeing Miura's name invokes rage in me. Went from one of my favorites to one of my least favorites within a matter of a few years.

Q: What's the longest you've gone without taking a shower?

About one week when I went hiking in the Austrian mountains. But I jumped into an alpine lake which I passed by, man that was cold.

What's the most likely reason for World War 3 from this list?
Cultural / religious motivated war between Christians and Muslims
Fight for natural resources and water
Big immigration waves because of climate changes
Cold war heating up again resulting in war between NATO and Russia

"Cultural / religious motivated war between Christians and Muslims" next summer or "Fight for natural resources and water" later. Likely both.

Because it's not widely used in most normal business and educational settings.

There is no local mall where I live.

Proof has been found of another deity being real, that does not imply the non-existence of other deities. Start believing in the one that definitely exists, or keep believing in whatever you already are?

A: Difficult one... but that would be hardest on the athiests who always stick to the "lack of proof" argument (and quite honestly, many of whom are far more fucking annoying than evangelical Christians and almost jihadists). I guess I'd still believe in what I believe, but I'd put a lot of effort into studying the deity that was proven to exist.

Q: You have time machine that will take you to any single concert in history. Which one do you go to? (Band and tour will probably suffice).

Easy one, I want to see my all time favourite band Death on their final tour in 1998 before their lead singer, guitarist and main song writer Chuck Schuldiner died of brain cancer.
I remember they played my home city on this tour and a friend of mine went to see them and asked if I want to join but I was mostly into Heavy and Thrash Metal back then and denied.


What's the easiest way to get a sixpack? Please no joke answers like buy one in your local supermarket ;)

Apparently they're making fake muscle implants now, so that answers your question.

What is the most powerful player-controlled spaceship in all of shmup existence? (R-type ships are excluded because they would be an easy answer)
