    General What's the least amount of sleep you've gotten?

    I work nights-12 hour shifts. I’ve gone 72 hours without sleep before-dangerous as hell driving home. My eyes would close, but I could still see the road. I’d jerk awake and be headed for a sugar maple.

    Who was your dream woman/man when you were a teenager?

    Movie star = Bo Derek. Irl = a girl I went to school with but never had the bottle to ask out. I was crazy about her. Years later I met her in a bar and the topic came up-she said she had wondered what was wrong with her as she’d been just waiting for me to ask her, as she really enjoyed my company. The stupid crap you do when you’re a kid.

    Would you change your name?

    I did it. When I was 21 I changed my middle and last names around. My family name is a first name and my middle name was my grandmothers maiden name. If I could go back and undo it I definitely would. It upset my dad more than I thought it would. We’re so thoughtless sometimes when we’re young. Too much water under the bridge now to change it back.

    General How old are you?

    Yeah-cry me a river man. I’m one and a half away from 50!

    What Do You Want Your Tombstone To Say?

    ‘As You are, so was I. As I am, so shall you be.’ Dark, eh?

    General Have you ever met someone famous?

    I met Prince Charles and Princess Diana while they were still married-I was around 12 I think. I also met Dave Gilmour and Nick Mason from Pink Floyd, amongst others not worthy of mentioning next to these luminaries.
  8. I don’t imagine it’s universal, however I’ve met 3 bronies irl and all the traits mentioned were in evidence. Especially the personal freshness one-Madre De Dios!

    Weirdest name you've given to a pet

    My daughter left us her Maltese/poodle mix when she moved south. When she was a little puppy her whines would sound like whistling, so we named her whistles. She’s a good girl.

    Respond with a picture

    Just trying to make up the character requirement. The didn't have this before.
  11. There are a lot of factors that determine closeness with one parent or another. It depends a lot on the kid-and often on the stage of development they are at. For some they need emotional openness from their parents to feel close to them, for others that approach can feel unstable. Most kids need stability more than anything-the closeness sometimes only develops when the relationship shifts from provider/dependent to independent-others are close to one or another from day 1. People and their relationships are very individual, and there is no one box they all fit in-it depends on a lot of different issues. To say that girls tend toward their mothers and boys to their fathers is erroneous-each parent provides for a different set of needs. Mom is often the nurturing, comforting figure, Dad is the protector. Our girls will talk to my wife for hours and have connections with her that i don't-but when they're scared they run to me for protection and safety. Both are vitally important, but in different ways.
  12. Been a long time Thunder but I always remember you! Great to see you after all these years!

      How have you been? Things freed up a bit so I have some time to lurk around a bit. Good to see you around-hope everything’s going well.

    Things you do to release anger?

    Disappear into my garage and work on stuff, smoke a cigar, lift weights, punch a heavy bag, listen to Motorhead or something similarly heavy-all usually work.
