    I don't know if it's an age thing but I don't even care that much about my own birthday anymore.

    It may be an age thing, because I don't give half a husky shit about my birthday either. All it is, is the day that enables me to say one number higher when someone asks me how old I am. I'm 42 now. Before you know it I'll be 50. Assuming I live that long.

    No, because I have a strong aversion towards insects and find the idea of eating them unappetizing and unappealing. I can't even imagine having such a dish lol.

    When I would take that month every summer to live off the land, I would often eat things like grubs and grasshoppers. They're not the best tasting, but they pack a shitload of protein.

    It's been a while since I've been on but I wanted to catch up with everyone. How's everyone been? I've been dealing with the sudden loss of my dog a few weeks back. I still miss her but life goes on.

    I'm so sorry you lost your baby. I lost mine last year. I've worn a vial around my neck ever since that has a bit of her blood, hair, and ashes in it. I refuse to take it off for any reason. I could die at 100 and this would still be around my neck.

    I'd probably say Siberia just to see the Siberian tigers. I've seen a Bengal tiger and those things are massive! I can't imagine what the biggest feline outside of a liger looks.

    I had the opportunity to buy an entire liger skeleton. I just didn't have the $10k to drop on it. All I was interested in was the skull, since I collect skulls. But I couldn't buy just that. That would have been the crown jewel of my collection until I get a human skull.

    This isn't a sport. This is just plain stupidity and I've seen even more absurd ones they're trying to call a "sport"

    The fact that there's a CHAMPIONSHIP and a damn crowd doesn't make this display of dumbassery valid for anything other than pissing each other off. Why the hell would did anyone get into this stupid shit. Better yet, HOW THE FUCK DID THIS IDIOCY EVEN GET STARTED???? I have only ever come across one reason for people to be slapping each other. If you've played RDR2 you've seen it. It's an attempt to sober each other up.

    My biggest fear is definitely heights, when my spouse and I go to the mall I can't be near the railing when we're on the second floor. I walk on the side closest to the stores

    I do the exact same thing. I look towards the wall, and keep as far away from any railings as I can. If I somehow get near one, I freak out and @Rain Dew has to take the control stick on my chair and drive me back over to the wall.

  7. I had a Yorkie that I names Bailey. I named my hedgehog Kira. With the 2 dragons I had, being that I'm such a huge Poe nut, I named the male Edgar, and the female Lenore. We have had other pets with a wide variety of names, but those are just the ones I'm listing for now.

  8. To my knowledge, Blackcurrant juice isn't even sold here. I would love to try it, but I don't know where I could even get it.

    I just looked it up on google, and I'm not paying $50+ for a fucking bottle of that shit.

    Fuck blackcurrant.

  9. I've tried Escargot. If you can get past the fact that you're eating a snail, it's actually really good. I've also had haggis. It's awesome, but you have to have someone who knows exactly what the fuck they're doing to be the ones cooking it. It's hard to get it right, but if you can, it's mouth wateringly delicious. Ever since my gramma and sperm donor died (he was ranked the best cook in the state) I haven't had it.

    I would choose the power of instantly transforming any object into a marshmallow. It would be useless because it serves no practical purpose, but it would bring joy and amusement to people as they witness ordinary things turn into delicious treats.

    Campfires would become an everyday thing from there, and sales of graham crackers and Hershey's bars would go through the roof. S'mores anyone?

    I would love to be able to predict the future. I can use it to get certain things in order and also prevent unfortunate circumstances. 
    I am one that is always curious about what would happen in the next few hours. 

    I would never want that one. With that I could see how and when I would die. That's information I just don't want.

    For me it's a tossup between the ability to fly and the ability to turn invisible. Flying like Superman would just be awesome as hell, and turning invisible would allow me the ability to hide out in the bank without being seen, and add about 6 or 7 digits to my bank account balance.

  12. I would relax a HELL OF A LOT MORE than I'm able to now. I have plans on getting a cabin built off in the woods, hidden from society, where I can escape when I need to. There will be no electricity or running water. There would be an outhouse. Just a fireplace with a chimney, a table with chair, bookshelf, a nightstand, and a bed. I would have a few candles as well. I would keep copies of some of my favorite books there to read, as well as notebooks for whatever and I would definitely take my diary as well. Yes, I'm 42 and still keep a diary. The silence and stillness would be more than soothing. Just 4 walls and a roof. There doesn't even have to be a floor. The dirt is just fine with me.

    There is very little that I need to be happy. Luxuries are great, but some of us just don't actually need them. Sometimes we don't even want them.

  13. I always wanted to learn to play hockey, but I could never stand up on skates. I spent 99% of my time on my ass from my feet slipping out from under me. If by some stroke of luck I was able to get the momentum to start moving, I could keep skating forward. That was not a real issue. The issue was stopping and NOT landing on my face.

    So I resolved to just watch my Red Wings and try to decipher the code that led to them being able to skate forwards, backwards, and sideways. Especially as super high speeds.

    For those calling bullshit, YOU CAN SKATE SIDEWAYS.

  14. I've never been a fan of Valentine's Day, as so many women expect (or even demand) gifts as if it's their fucking birthday or xmas. But these days, I do pick up a box of chocolates and maybe a teddy bear or something for @Rain Dew on Valentine's Day, plus a card.

    But all in all, I just see it as a holiday that's pushed by greeting card companies to sell more product.
