It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these, so I thought I’d bring it back with a vengeance style. Also I’ve been bored today.

So this works the same way as usual. Ask me anything and I’ll answer to the best of my ability. Yes, I’ll even help you with your chemistry homework.


A little about me to start: I’m opspe (of course), I’m 22, and I live in Vancouver, Canada. I’m finishing up my Bachelor’s Degree in Honours Chemistry. I joined KYM towards the end of October 2011 after having lurked for several months. On the site I spend most of my time in the forums, but you can also catch me editing some entries and sometimes in the IRC.

ok…

What sorta music do you listen to?

What’s your favorite book/movie/game/user named Patrick/type of soda/TV show? (you only have to answer one.)

Are you especially gifted at any other core subjects, other than Chemistry?

How many ‘accidental’ fires did you start back in high school Chemistry class?

CitationNeeded: I love you more than there are stars in the sky and fish in the sea. Because love is clearly a quantifiable object.


Vlad: The only book I really have time to read right now is The Art and Architecture of the Ancient Near East, which is one of my textbooks. I’m also partway through 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, which is an interesting historical text. I don’t have much to suggest fiction-wise, sorry.


Adam: I inherited my dad’s collection, and I grew up reading them. So yes, that is a fair statement.


RPP: Like a faggot. That’s why Philip calls me faggot-spe.


madcat: Honestly, I forget. I’ve had it since I was a big TFC clanner back in high school.


Patrick: Music…music…I listen to lots; I like Drum and Bass, some dubstep, hip hop, trance, some rock, classical….yeah. My favourite user named Patrick would have to be Patrick. As for other subjects, I know a lot about anthropology and sociology, as well as maps and cartography. And I have yet to start any fires accidentally, although I started several as demos at a museum I used to work at.


CitationNeeded: What is love? Baby don’t hurt me…


Ivan: The egg. It’s a scientific fact.

Kasrkai: In fact, I do not.


Suiseiseki: 42, 42, and never.


Fridge Logic: No, YOUR mother.


Wsxdas: 42.


CitationNeeded: You call that a knife? THIS is a knife!


Philip: Because I said so.

Why do you think you’re important enough to have your own AMA?

Because I mentioned something in passing about me making one but decided not to and annoyed him into making one instead.

What is the easiest and fastest way to transport extremely fragile goods from Toronto, ON to Las Vegas, NV?

-Besides actually driving Toronto-Las Vegas (3,600km)
-Goods are guaranteed to be safe/non-dangerous

cause my current plan: driving to Las Vegas kinda sucks. I estimated its gonna take 4 days with stops.

I’m not going to lie, driving would work best, but it is a long way. You might consider couriering them, or shipping them first class. And if you are shipping them, you should insure them.

Mr. J: I’m a chemist, but I do know about physics; one of my courses this term had a lot to do with nuclear physics, and I know about Quantum Mechanics and stuff too.


BSOD: You’re my most faithful student. I am and have been attempting to instruct others about the True Path, but none have been as receptive as you. You make me proud.

Give me a break, I don’t even much like drum & bass.

Chris: I think that the fact that I completely forgot to answer your question before should give you all the information you need.


Saporian: Pues, ya que hablo español, las telenovelas me interesan un poco más que a un gringo típico. Cuando estoy en los EEUU, algunas veces miro los canales latinos porque los programas me parecen ser más graciosos que los programas estadounidenses.


CitationNeeded #3: If I were to die in 48 hours…I would go far away from this city and try to spend my remaining time out in the desert where I can be alone. I don’t know why, but I just have this urge to return to the Alvord Desert. And go sit in a hot spring. It’s so much more peaceful than the city.

Sometimes I want to live there, but then I remember all the things that I can’t get, because there are now towns anywhere near. If my life were going to end soon, it wouldn’t be a problem.

What are your opinions on the current state of the forums and what do you hope to see from the community in the future (either see for a change or see more of)?

If that question doesn’t work for you, then boxers or briefs?

Well, I really do like the community here. It keeps me coming back. But that’s not to say that it’s perfect. There’s been some talk lately about the JFF and how to handle the large volume of…random threads, and about how to treat derails. Coming up with a system that appeases everyone isn’t easy, but I think that our Forum Mods are doing a good job handling it. I haven’t spent a whole lot of time thinking about it myself since it’s not really my concern, not being (or frankly wanting to be) a Forum Mod. But I think it’s good that some amongst the community are looking at it critically and assessing it with the intent to improve it. It just shows how robust the community is.

I also like a lot of our forum games, especially mafia (well maybe not so much this round, but still). They’re a lot of fun and you can really get to know some of the users. Some of the premises seem a little thin, such as Hurt/Heal, but they’re fun nonetheless.

The “X General” threads (Pony, WoT, Homestuck, etc), especially the Pony Generals, are almost self-contained microcosms of the site with their own subsets of users and with their own in-jokes and drama. I think it would be great for some of the users who confine themselves to those threads to extend themselves to other parts of the forums, because there are some really great people hidden away in there. I think this is especially problematic with the Pony Generals; to outsiders, they’re a daunting, fast-paced environment that’s almost impossible to break into, and to insiders, they’re such a secure place where they can express themselves via ponies. So one thing that I guess I’d like to see in the future is more mixing between the Pony General posters and the rest of the forums.

Long story short: Things are great, the Forum Mods are doing a good job, and I’d like to see some of the Pony General users post outside Pony General for a change, because the site has so much more to offer.


Now, about boxers vs briefs: either. Both have their uses, and I may choose one over the other depending on mood or application (bike riding requires briefs, for instance).

Oddly enough, I considered asking both of those questions, Bob.
 
But since they’ve been posed, is “putting the screw in the tuna” 90’s comedy at it’s finest or just another innuendo?

I wouldn’t say that “putting the screw in the tuna” is 90s comedy at it’s finest, because that’s grammatically incorrect. I have also never heard that phrase before, but it sounds too stupid to be an innuendo (inYOURendo dohohoho). So to answer your question, I have no idea.

Upon conducting some research, I’ve concluded that it is, in fact, 90s comedy at its finest.

Your next assignment is to investigate the Brazilian producer known as S.P.Y. Perhaps it might be worth noting his countryman DJ Marky as well, as they have produced many collaborations.

I swear this is a true story. I went to a high school in Vancouver and you crashed our prom after party (Pan Pacific Vancouver). You ended up taking the virginity of a girl named Orivia. You didn’t call her afterwards. She cried a lot. Do you remember any of this and can confirm or have you been so knee deep in canadian pooty for so long that this qualifies as a mere blip?

I’m afraid Mr Opspe can only answer questions about his upcoming entry “lol Rampart”.

If train A leaves his station at 13:00 with a speed of 80 km/h. And train B leaves his station at 13:30 with a speed of 120 km/h. The distance between the stations is 70 km.

When the main service fucks up the intersects, crashing the trains, killing hundreds. Which train is closer to station A at the time of the crash?


It seems you show an interest in becoming a Forum Mod. No suprise actually, as 96,385% of regular forum posters would love to be one. But you have been doing a great amount of work on entries lately. Plus you don’t slack when you receive editorship and do a great contribution to it. So with that you would also make a great Entry Mod.

Which gets me to the following question: If you could choose, Forum or Entry Mod? And why?
