Ask, ask, ask!

After doing it my first November blogging, and then the next year, it's time to do it again! I didn't do it in '08 it would appear, and my reader base has almost entirely changed. (Hey, are any of the original crew lurking around any more?)

For those of you unfamiliar (most of you?), you get to ask Spencer any question you want, as many questions as you want! You can ask him about views, experiences, likes and dislikes, belongings, or anything your heart desires, and then Spencer will answer them in another post. The only rules are: you have ten days (until the 29th), all questions must be in the form of comments on this post, keep it clean, and I reserve the right to (possibly) decline to answer a certain question if I see fit.

So, if you're a loyal reader, you had better comment, or I'll...I'

LOL! What if I can't think of a question? (Yes, I am a LOYAL reader.) And that question I just asked doesn't count. :P
Oh wait, I just thought of one. Could you expound on your convictions/opinions on 'Fantasy/Msgic' in Film and Lit.?
How's that for a question? *grins*

Son3 said...

What is the Warrior's perspective on micronationalism?

olde.fashioned said...

I'm part of the original crew!!! *waves hand wildly* And do I count for the questions? Or...?

Teresa said...

I am a new follower. But, I must ask this question since you believe in God and are very much interested in science.

Do you think its possible that both Creation or that God created everything and evolution could have both happened? Or in combination?

I believe in both God and science and have thought on this subject from time to time.

Bethany said...

Ok, guess I'm a new loyal reader. :D What are your views on the three following issues:

#1. abortion
#2. gun rights
#3. modesty (mostly, as a guy, what is/isn't modest for girls to wear?)

A sister in Christ,

1. What is your favorite insect?
2. If you had to choose, would you have a secret passageway or front door?
3. Warpaint or camouflage?
4. Broadsword or rapier?
5. What is your favorite word verification that all of us readers have brought up? (p.s. mine this time is "losest.")
6. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
7. Do you like to climb trees?
8. Do you want to see a family picture from right before my brother died?
9. Do you like symbolism?
10. I like the verses,
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
"In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
~ Proverbs 3:5-6, KJV
Any thoughts on these verses?
11. What are you most afraid of?
12. You are aware that you owe me a hug, right?

Hi Spencer,

I haven't commented for ages, but have been keeping an eye on your blog.

What is your absolute favourite book, apart from the Bible?

fuzzys dad said...

I see from your slide show you have a long gun. Do you own a handgun? If so what make and caliber? I own a Glock model 22.It is .40 cal. i love it.

Mariah :) said...

(Since I forgot what number I ended on...)

n. If I was to choose an animal to symbolize you, I would choose a lion. Why do you think that I would choose a lion?

n+1. If you had to choose to learn to play the tuba or the cello, which would you choose?

n+2. In my book, which was your favorite story?

n+3. How would you react if you saw me climb a tree in a skirt? (I have been known to do that before... and not just once or twice, either--or in a dress. With a cloak and teddy bear.)

n+4. May I borrow a pencil?

n+5. What does n equal, assuming that n is the number directly following the number I ended my last list on?

n+6. What if you married someone who loved really bright colors?

n+7. Would you prefer to live in Australia and fight the poisonous or otherwise dangerous creatures, or Antarctica and fight the equally dangerous cold?

n+8. Do you like Gregorian chants? any other kinds of chants?

n+9. Mittens or gloves? (If either choice was in black.)

n+10. If you had a ship, where would you sail to?

n+11. Do you know who Spencer W. Kimball is? (Or should I say "was," since he's not alive?)

n+12. How loyal is a "loyal reader"?

n+13. Would you consider eating spaghetti off of a table cloth, without a fork?

n+14. When do I get that hug you owe me? ;)

Mariah :) said...

Cloth handkerchief or paper tissues?

duva said...

Well, this was interesting... here are a few points I'd like to ask ;)

Have you ever been outside the US? If so - where?

Where (outside the US) would you most like to go? Why?

Can you name one favourite verse from the Old Testament and one from the New? And of course - why would you choose those?

(and since I'm an historian focused on the medieval) Can you name one favourite person from that era? Why? (I realize medieval is a broad perspective but you get the idea..)

And on to some stranger ones :P

Do you think long hair is unmanly? Why/why not?

Is make-up? Why/why not?

And a bonus question to test your understanding of comparative Germanic as well as your knowledge of Hebrew.. What do you think a Duva is, and why would I have chosen that name? ;)

guitargirl said...

I haven't commented in a while, but I still read your reviews.

Aside from Bleak House (*snigger*) what is your all time favorite movie?

Johann Van De Leeuw said...

Sha'n't ask you a question - you've enough to answer already!

Mariah :) said...

I forgot. Never mind.

Lizzy said...

Oh, oh! I just thought of another: :D Could we all hear your testimony? Pweeze, oh pweeze?

duva said...

OK, I got thinking of one more thing since I watched a really interesting and fascinating, as well as powerful, movie yesterday. So, have you seen "The Gospel according to St. Matthew" (Il vangelo secondo Matteo) by Pier Paolo Pasolini? If so, did you like it? If not, which is your favourite depiction of Christ in a movie if any?

The Warrior said...

Good work, y'all. Keep up the questions, Spencer is not afraid to answer!


Mariah :) said...

You shouldn't have said that, Spencer; now I'm curious about what you would be afraid to answer! Luckily for you, I'm not going to make that a question, though. ;)

p.s. word verification "pilival." Sounds of something that could be medieval, but I'm not at all sure what...

Lydia said...

Well. I still read this, but I don't really have questions. BUT... you told loyal readers to comment, so commenting I am.

Chairman Mo said...

I know I don't comment much, but I frequently read your blog to see just how much it will infuriate me :P
Though of course there are rare occasions where I agree with you ;)
So I do have a couple of questions:
- Does your belief in national sovereignty (at least for the USA) extend beyond the USA, and in particular to nations which are not Christian?
- Why do you think evolution is such a controversial issue in the USA (as opposed to elsewhere)?
- How should your belief in 'freedom of religion' be interpreted?
- How do you plan to become a dinosaur palaeontologist without accepting evolution?

It's always interesting to hear what people think, especially if you disagree with them. But as I have said before, I like your blog and you write it very well.
