Writer's Block: Tales from the rift

If you could travel back in time and ask any deceased political figure (famous or infamous) a single question, who would you choose, and what would you ask?
That would be hard to decide - although people in America today almost constantly argue about the stances that the Founding Fathers would have taken on particular issues, and I would like to settle one of those issues by asking George Washington about it, it would be hard to pick which issue to ask him about.

One of the problems of "stances that the Founding Fathers would have taken on particular issues" is which one you ask, they had different ideas among them selves back then.

Good point. I guess even if I could single out just one issue to ask them about, I wouldn't be able to get their majority opinion because I could only ask one of them.

Interesting question. I'd pick Anne Boleyn, but I don't know what I would ask her.

At least it would probably make a lot more sense than my answer to this question.

Yours made sense, I thought it was a good answer.

I thought it made sense, too, but it turns out it didn't make enough sense. Read foundunicorn's comment and my reply to it.

Nah, it made plenty of sense. I have no idea what I would ask Anne Boleyn, I'd just want to get to know her and see what she was really like. Weird.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
