I have someone very special I would like you all to meet, Sarah Hiraki! She is one of our new internet scientists, as you may have seen, and she is afraid of the dark. She also likes snacks.

Ask her anything~~~

Ice cream. DUH. I like waffle cones, I like chunks. Though green tea has to be my favorite flavor.
Frozen yogurt is only good if you enjoy LYING TO YOURSELF.

Sweaty. We have a lot of hot lights in a tiny room.
Also I realized that I’m probably illiterate, but we worked through it.

I’m sorry, Amanda. Sarah may be my new favorite staff member for that reason alone.

My last exposure to acting was on my high school debate team, so it’s been a long time since my glory days.
They internet and I go way back, I’m a graphic designer by trade, so falling in love with the internet and falling in love with photoshop went hand in hand during middle school. I used to have a (pretty embarassing) webcomic on livejournal and I was super into icontests there for a while. I was the token friend in high school that you asked to shoop all of your myspace photos for you, and used to troll on AIM and in yahoo chat a bunch.

Now I participate on the internet in undisclosed locations.
I never use reddit, which is weird, I guess. Aaaand then I met Forest and Alison and ended up on Know Your Meme.

You obviously know nothing of sky piracy.

That is a joke.


Do you play video games? If so, favorites?

Myspace, wow. I’ve entered a whole new world here.

I have a couple more questions.

First, you say you “ended up on Know Your Meme.” Could you elaborate? How exactly did you wind up in our little corner of the internet.

Next, what are your music preferences? Favorite group, singer, album, anything really.

WHO WAS PHONE?

And on a serious note, how did you get into this line of work? What are your thoughts on it? Is there anything you’d like to share with your viewers that you haven’t had the opportunity to?

New internet scientist? Yay! This site really has been growing in the past few days, what with the new mods and promotions and all, and this is just icing on the cake!

Anyways, I have a few choice questions:
Is Hiraki your real last name?
Apparently you’ve just joined an hour ago. Have you ever had a previous account on this site before?
Are you familiar with this thread?
Have you ever met Jamie Dubs in person?

Your house is on fire. You have 30 minutes to secure what you can before the house goes down. Inside is your cat, your dog (you have both now), some old family photos and heirlooms, your car (for some reason) and your entire life savings. The car and pets will take 15 minutes to get out (each), everything else you can get out in 10.

What color is your toothbrush?

“Hello Girl
This is crazy

I get karma every freaking time I do your average European flirty casanova.

I met Forest and Alison (and Rob) through other work at Cheezburger which will be released soon. From that point we all had some funny conversations about spaghetti in pockets and having stairs in our houses (and Dolan m also kind of a musical theatre snob. Big Sondheim fan. Huge.

This is the first time I’ve heard in relative detail how it is when KYM/Cheezburger staff talk to one another.

MY DAD IS DEAD. and ruined my first date.
I got into making videos with KYM through being buds with Forest.

I just want you all to know that I’m stoked that you watch our videos! and that I’m obsessed with your comments (good and bad) and I read them all. Every last one.

Do you love animes?

You know, I watch a lot less anime than I used to. I love cartoons in general, and have always been a fan of mainstream animes like Sailor Moon and pokemon.

K-On has been recommended to me, and I’d like to watch the rest of Haruhi.
