Quizzery, again

Cal comes up with this, and I figured I’d play along, even though it covers a lot of old territory from quizzes of yesteryear:

Lord Kelly, Scourge of Orion (yeah, there’s a story there…I should post about it someday)

2.NICKNAME(S)?

It’s the one you’re looking at. Unless you’re reading this on Google Groups, in which case, it’s not.

5.FAVORITE SALAD DRESSING?

Extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar (but I also like good old ranch).

6.FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?

(And if I’m on death row, I chase it all with a shot of ipecac.)

45.WHAT IS YOUR PREFERRED METHOD OF EXECUTION?

Crucifixion. It gets you out in the open air.

51.WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?

I like the Star Wars Prequel trilogy.

    I kinda am loving how this stupid noisemaker is making those in power lose their stuff because they can't control them. They are a cheap way for the poor to show their pride in their team. I don't buy the arguement one bit that they are untouchable because they are a cultural artifact. Personally I was not so bothered by watching games that were 90 minutes worth of vuvuzela noise.
