Re: IYSH November 2016!

@N1ghtW1ng The flame lily looks like a really cool flower!!

 

I'd agree with you about teleportation. It would be sooo useful! And so much better for the environment than people driving cars everywhere.

 

"Just keep swimming" - gotta love the wisdom of Dory/Ellen Degeneres! I like the idea behind "fake it til you make it," but I can't fake my feelings at all, which is quite annyoing. So I use something similar - "take action and wait for your heart to catch up."

Re: IYSH November 2016!

@redhead Thanks! So glad you liked it! I've put it on my ipod and have been listening to it at work to try to shake myself out of anxiety.

 

Also, I love "this, too, shall pass" as well!

 

Telekinesis would be really cool. Have you ever seen Charmed? The oldest sister, Prue, had the power of telekinesis and that was pretty interesting to watch.

If you were a flower, what type would you be and why?

Geraldton Wax because they are beautiful flowers which look deleicate but in reality are hardy and can grow in the toughest conditions.

 

If you could have any super power in the world, what would it be?

Me and a friend were talking about this the other week and after much discussion we both decided that being able to talk in every language (including sign language) and all their dilects would be awesome. You could talk with anyone and help people communicate with eachother.

 

What's your favourite condement? 

Pretty much anything! I love putting condements on things Smiley Happy

 

Whats your favourite saying?

Its ok to be not ok

 

What is cooler, Dinosaurs or Dragons?

Dinosaurs as they were real and once roamed the earth. I personally want to know what God was thinking when he created the dinosaurs because it was amazing just how big they were!

Re: IYSH November 2016!

 

If you were a flower, what type would you be and why?

 

Epiphyllum oxypetalum, more commonly known as, the "Queen of the Night". Why? Because each flower only blooms at night, which fits quite well with my own owlish sensibilities. What's more, they only bloom for a single night per year, so for those who are lucky enough to witness them in bloom, every moment is both precious and magical.

 
Which might sound terribly self-aggrandizing on my part, if it weren't for the fact that they're actually a member of the cactus family. So they're actually kind of bland and weird-looking most of the time, and you probably won't think much of them if you only spot them in passing during the day. To get the best mileage out of them, you have to know them intimately- and if that's not the greatest floral metaphor for an introvert, then I don't know what is.
 
Day:
night blooming day
 
...and night:
 
night blooming cereus night
 

If you could have any super power in the world, what would it be?

 

People have called me a sociopath for saying this, but hands down, the best (or most powerful, anyway) super power in the world is the power of illusion. Most people disagree with this because superhero comics tend to have illusion-based characters as third-rate villains whose abilities are always shattered in about 2 seconds by the heroes' "willpower" or what have you, but most people are wrong. While illusions might suck in comics, we don't live in a comic book world. And the real world, (ironically) runs on people's perceptions more than anything else - including the truth.

 

Just look at your average introverts - sure, on the surface they might seem shy, awkward and kind of boring to hang out with, but get to know them, and you'll quickly realise they can have some of the richest, most exciting inner worlds. Stocks will rise and fall according to people's perception of their risk, regardless of how rock-solid the investment might actually be. In a couple hours, Americans are going to start voting according to who they believe their candidates to be...rather than who they necessarily are. I imagine a fair proportion of Americans are going to vote against Hillary because they believe her to be "crooked"- nevermind that independent fact-checkers have consistently shown that she's substantially more honest than her opponent. If the point needs to be hammered in further-  just look at the distress that hallucinations can bring to people suffering from psychoses.

 

In short, if you can control people's perceptions, you control their world. Which makes having illusory super powers about the closest thing to godhood that you can get. Which is pretty tempting, even though I'd probably only use it for really mundane things, like making my boss think the clock was 15 minutes slow when I walked in so they wouldn't chew me out for being late. Which could arguably be entirely avoided if I could stop time or teleport, but illusions are more versatile than either. If you're a girl who wears makeup- just imagine all the time and money you could save on cosmetics!

 

What's your favourite condiment?

 

Chili sauce. But none of that tomato sauce looking stuff that you find in Coles or Woolworths- that stuff has heat, but usually has a weird sour aftertaste that just isn't nice. The ones that you can get from actual Asian restaurants, and has pieces of actual chili in there.

 

Whats your favourite saying?

 

"Eh, I'll do it later". Not my actual favourite, but you wouldn't know that based on how often I say it.

 

What is cooler, Dinosaurs or Dragons?

 

Dragons, hands down. Dragons are basically just better dinosaurs that can fly and breathe fire. Besides, dinosaurs seem much less cool, now that we know they looked less like giant lizards and more like giant chickens.

 

Re: IYSH November 2016!

If you were a flower, what type would you be and why?

The flower of my childhood, star of the veldt, osteospermum hyoseroides! The only flower I can name! They're like tiny colourful sunflowers, aww. Also, it's not a flower, but have you heard of the ice cream tree??

 

If you could have any super power in the world, what would it be?

Ahem. Now, while there is a clear distinction between telepathy and telekinesis, this is not the case for technopathy and technokinesis, interestingly. Would this power allow you to talk to machines as if they were sentient beings, or control them as another limb? Furthermore, the limits for defining what is truly a machine are unclear at best; is this an extension of control over electricity, or does the power include control over simple clockwork mechanisms? If the latter is the case, then it would probably devolve into a more generic control over elements, or perhaps metal/wood in particular.

 

tl;dr - When I grow up, I want to be a computer! Smiley Very Happy

  

What is cooler, Dinosaurs or Dragons?

One of these things doesn't actually exist, and imagination beats reality! Although...

 

What's your favourite saying?

Oh... I don't really have one of these, but it did make me think of my favourite word from the vocabulary section of my Japanese textbook oh my god that sounded so nerdy hahaha. After double-checking online, this word is 'mayowazu' - without hesitation! Smiley Very Happy

And there's a slang form of mayowazu, with 'mayo' in katakana, as in 'there isn't even time to add mayonnaise'! Apparently this is from a Japanese cooking show which used it to describe dishes which should be cooked fast.

 

What's your favourite condiment?

There is ALWAYS time to add mayonnaise.

That's the punchline, that's why I did the questions out of order orz.

Re: IYSH November 2016!

@Gumi Gumi I hadn't heard of the ice-cream tree, but that's really cool!

 

Also I like that you picked a Japanese word as your favourite! I was thinking of doing that too. I quite like "kandou" which refers to being deeply moved or touched by something.
