    Questions 5-9:

    -----

    5. What are your main hobbies/interests/freetime activities.

    Teh ladies; drinkies; movies (massive film buff); footies (watching not playing (lol @ Arsenal))


    6. What is your political persuasion?

    Lovely left of centre. Blair has been a hen's husband on the Iraq front - and on the sucking of Bush's hen's husband front, in general - but his government has done a bunch of good too. In essence I believe in the principles of socialism; of the masses working together for the good of all. This also means that unlike a lot of Americans, I do not find the essence of communism to be abhorrent and the work of the devil. (This may also be a good place to point out that I do not hate hippies either.)


    7. What is your religious persuasion?

    No religion, per se. I dabbled with Christianity when younger and found it to be very hypocritical for my tastes. However, I have always been a spiritual person at heart (insert love of Star Wars here to example), and in January this year I found (and indeed, it found me) the book: Conversations with God. This book, and the subsequent books in the series, have changed my life. I am a subscriber to the thoughts and theories in these books and will wax poetic about them, should the topic arise.


    8. What is your current romantic status? Single, dating, engaged, married (and for how long)?

    Single, single, single. Having come out of a nine year relationship, 18 months ago.


    9. What is your favorite color?

    Blue or pink.

    5. What are your main hobbies/interests/freetime activities.
    Reading, film, ornithology, astronomy, football (Everton, obviously - but I like to think I have a good grasp of a lot of the game), collecting Star Wars Lego (no shame there then).

    6. What is your political persuasion?
    There's nowhere on the mainstream spectrum I like to call a permanent home. There's light and shade across it all. I tend to vote on the basis of which party I perceive to be best suited to form a government. Thus, the next General Election will be the first General Election the Conservative Party will be eligible for my vote.

    7. What is your religious persuasion?
    No religion. I don't give any genuine credence to the beliefs of any religion (that's not to say I'd deny a person their right to cradle a belief - or decide friendship on that basis). Not an atheist either - I can't deny the possibility of a being similar to the idea of 'god'. Agnostic is probably the best fit. I don't think humanity is anywhere near pinning down the secrets of this Universe. If something did create this Earth as a conscious act, it will be as much of a real entity as you or I, and will one day be positively identified. It may not even be humanity that makes this discovery, but someday, something will (should this be the case). For my lifetime, and I suppose for your lifetime too [speaking to everyone] the only possibly answer to all the big questions religion purports to answer is "I don't know". I appreciate that solace in an explanation, or even a half-answer, is a very powerful thing, but I personally couldn't carry myself daily with such a huge piece of archived guesswork as a core belief.

    8. What is your current romantic status? Single, dating, engaged, married (and for how long)?
    Single.

    9. What is your favorite color?
    Royal Blue.

    5. What are your main hobbies/interests/freetime activities.

    Reading, teh intranets, porn, sleeping, videogames, porn, movies, television, porn, exercising, etc.

    6. What is your political persuasion?

    I guess most people would consider me very liberal socially, but I think they'd be wrong in some aspects-- at least in the popularly accepted use of the term (I detest drug use and I don't think all recreational drugs should be legal, I don't think abortion is a "right," I'm wary of allowing any sort of euthanasia laws, I don't think the outright banning of guns is a viable solution to violence). Economically, I'm mixed: I don't think that it should be a totally free market because of its inevitable consequences nor do I think there should be a government-controlled economy.

    7. What is your religious persuasion?

    Claptonist.

    8. What is your current romantic status? Single, dating, engaged, married (and for how long)?

    Stalker.

    9. What is your favorite color?

    5. What are your main hobbies/interests/freetime activities.

    Reading, writing, meditation, martial arts, art (drawing).

    6. What is your political persuasion?

    You'd have a tough time finding a proper location for me in the American political system. I've been called a liberatarian (sometimes by me) but that's not quite right given that I don't subscribe to everything the Libertarian party subscribes to. In short, I believe that the government's involvment in one's day-to-day life should be minimal. This extends to everything from involvement in the market to having a say in who marries whom.

    7. What is your religious persuasion?

    I believe that there is a God and that none of us have any real understanding of him/her/it. I've studied many religions and come to the conclusion that they are all wrong and they are all right. The best way to sum up my feelings, is to read this poem by John Godfrey Saxe:

    It was six men of Indostan
    To learning much inclined,

    Who went to see the Elephant
    (Though all of them were blind),

    That each by observation
    Might satisfy his mind


    The First approached the Elephant,
    And happening to fall

    Against his broad and sturdy side,
    At once began to bawl:

    ?God bless me! but the Elephant
    Is very like a wall!?

    The Second, feeling of the tusk,
    Cried, ?Ho! what have we here

    So very round and smooth and sharp?
    To me ?tis mighty clear

    This wonder of an Elephant
    Is very like a spear!?

    The Third approached the animal,
    And happening to take

    The squirming trunk within his hands,
    Thus boldly up and spake:

    ?I see,? quoth he, ?the Elephant
    Is very like a snake!?

    The Fourth reached out an eager hand,
    And felt about the knee.

    ?What most this wondrous beast is like
    Is mighty plain,? quoth he;

    ? ?Tis clear enough the Elephant
    Is very like a tree!?

    The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear,
    Said: ?E?en the blindest man

    Can tell what this resembles most;
    Deny the fact who can

    This marvel of an Elephant
    Is very like a fan!?

    The Sixth no sooner had begun
    About the beast to grope,

    Than, seizing on the swinging tail
    That fell within his scope,

    ?I see,? quoth he, ?the Elephant
    Is very like a rope!?

    And so these men of Indostan
    Disputed loud and long,

    Each in his own opinion
    Exceeding stiff and strong,

    Though each was partly in the right,
    And all were in the wrong!


    Moral:

    So oft in theologic wars,
    The disputants, I ween,

    Rail on in utter ignorance
    Of what each other mean,

    And prate about an Elephant
    Not one of them has seen!


    8. What is your current romantic status? Single, dating, engaged, married (and for how long)?

    Not something for public discourse.

    9. What is your favorite color?

    Black

    1. What is your real name (as much of it as you're willing to give)?

    My real name? Woah that's hard. cause nobody really knows. I been called by many names. Milo, Miller, Emiler, Herman,Hermili,Hermione, Millero. Basically, my first name sucks. I got beat up in school alot.

    2. How old are you?

    34. But let me tell you..some girls say I look 28. So whenever I go clubbin' I always say i'm 28. You see I was married for 8 years and I don't know where those damn years went. it was a waste.



    3. Where do you live?


    San diego california. but more specifically, Chula Vista california. USA. I have also lived in Mexico, tijuana. you know san diego is a border town so it's nice to be part of both worlds. I love going down to rosarito baja california to get drunk.

    5. What are your main hobbies/interests/freetime activities.


    Well, I absolutely love collecting star wars toys. that's my main hobby. I am interested in education. I took numerous college courses to learn many subjects. like Painting, video editing, drawing, photography. In my time off I like to drive around, go to a bar and just relax..listen to some music..I am a huge depeche mode fan and that's all I listen too..on friday nights I usually get drunk at home and watch the depeche mode concert on DVD. I also love dating..metting new people and writing. I like gambling. I am really good at poker..this week for example, I might go to the beach or check out a movie..basically, I'll do anything, anytime, anywhere.



    6. What is your political persuasion?

    Democrat. I support Hillary Clinton 100%. I voted for democratic representatives here in the last election. I hate bush, I hate war and I hate the military. I personally, believe it's a waste of money. we are spending millions of dollars on building up a military that is useless..because wars are useless. and the military is used for that purpose..not for protection. That's why we have police officers.


    7. What is your religious persuasion?

    I grew up catholic. We used to go to church every sunday. I went to catholic school in Mexico city..I had to wear a uniform everyday. Think like the vatican type stuff. we had to learn all the songs, the words and we had a test every week. It was all about the virgin mary. I got sick of it to tell you the truth. Later, when I turned 18 or so, I became a christian..born again. I went to a ceremony in a house..they had this pool and me and my wife were baptized by the priest. we felt relieved. I stayed a christian for 6 years..we did the whole brotherhood deal. Me and my wife would participate, go to parks and homes and give bible studies to people and stuff. later, my wife quit so I did too. Now I am a scientologist. Basically, I believe all the ideologies but you could say I have my own faith and own belief.




    8. What is your current romantic status? Single, dating, engaged, married (and for how long)?



    Single. I'm not ready to marry again. I don't own a home and I can't really afford to get any girls pregnant or other commitments right now. basically, i'm just playin around.




    9. What is your favorite color?

    Blue.
