    Know Your Temps 3: Revelations

    Know Your Temps info

    For those of you that are new to the game, here are the rules:
    • One user will be put on the questioning stand every two days (or so)
    • Once that user's session of questioning starts, anybody can ask that user a reasonable amount of questions they want via posting on the thread
    • These questions can be about anything. Personal life, GBAtemp/internet life, pet peeves, questions, musical tastes, "what if" situations...anything!
    • Please try to post all your questions at once, in one solid post
    • Upon receiving questions, the user that is in the spotlight can answer them at anytime, as long as it's before their time is up.
    • Write a ten page paper, due next Wednesday, on what this experience has taught you. No double spacing; that's for quitters and splitters.
    This handy little activity will help us get to know our fellow 'tempers even better in an exciting, chaotic manner! Those who have an upcoming KYT session will be notified about their upcoming session via PM.

    Previous Sessions

    Upcoming sessions!

    In the spotlight this session is: TrolleyDave

    If you want thread policing, well, I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that. In the meantime, we'll have to trust you guys to be respectful and keep the questions coming.

    Hey Dave. How the hell are ya, mate?

    I think it's rather sad that our newest members haven't gotten the chance to know you as well as we did back in the ought-years.
    You're a damn fine fellow, and still somebody I'm proud to call a friend and mentor.

    Tell us how things are going with you and your lovely lady! (From the little I know of her I like her, by the way. Hope all goes well with you two. )

    In the face of so much idiocy in the world (religious, political, et cetera) how do you remain optimistic about our world?

    What do you think about the new forum software? Don't sugar-coat this.

    Did you find anything you liked in the music I sent you?

    What are the main issues that we as a world need to address immediately?

    Is the UK becoming more like the US, or vice versa?

    Do you use Skype? If you do, message me with the name you use. We have some excellent groups and conversations that you'd be welcome in.

    Do all philosophers have an "s" in their names?

    Who the fuck let us get so old?

    Is there any modern comedy worth spending time watching/listening to?

    Could you see me riding this?
    (The beautiful thing about not having kids or a wife is that I just might get to)

    That's all for now, but there will probably be more later.
    Take care, my friend.

    Why do you have such terrible and inferior opinions?
    Why does your taste in music suck?
    Why does your face look like it got smashed in by a wrecking ball?
    Why are you such a hate-filled person?
    Why do you reject our lord and saviour Jesus Christ?
    What is your approximate age? (Estimation to the nearest trillion is fine, I know it's hard to remember the whole digit)
    Do you still enjoy shagging sheep?
    Are you still a marxist conspiracist planning to overthrow the crown?
    What are your O Level grades (or A Level if you surprisingly actually managed to get so far)

    Didn't you have one of these just the other day?

    Wait, that was two years ago :wtf:

    Wow, time really flies when you're wasting it :unsure:
    (And by "you" I mean me.)

    How have you been? What have you been up to? What are your plans? Where are you going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you?

    Good to see you around. Stay a bit longer this time?

    Looks like we've covered all our bases.

    How would you describe the state of the games industry? Do you believe it's improving, or only getting worse?

    How much money do you have?

    Apart from the rather nasty dose of flu I've had over the last week, life is going pretty good actually! Met a great woman, start studying for a BA in Philosophy and Psychology in Feb next year, and things are just good in general. Could do with a job still, but can't have everything I suppose! Once I get underway in the BA, I reckon a job will be easier to find.

    The feeling is entirely mutual my friend! I'm still looking forward to the day I get to shake your hand in person and share a drink or two.

    It's going great mate! I've never met a woman I've felt so comfortable with, and thought so alike too. I'm hoping to get a job closer to where she is and move up there as soon as I can. The only spanner in the works is that her parents are fundamentalist Christians, the kind that don't celebrate Christmas and where everything they do revolves around their religion. They even brought a pastor in to speak to me in the hopes of convincing me of the god of Abraham's existence and that I'd misunderstood the Bible. Didn't go too well for the pastor. ;)

    I'm not quite right in the head. :P Nah, past experience shows me that people are, for the most part, good. Social pressure, corporate pressure, political pressure, propaganda, religion, and the like all serve to keep people pre-occupied and scared. Put enough fear and pressure on people though and instead of breaking them, you cause them to stand up and fight regardless of what may happen to them. It's already starting to happen globally, as you can see by the Occupy movements and other protests that governments are trying to keep hidden. Plus, as history evidences, it only takes a small percentage of strong and determined people to change things.

    Actually I don't mind it. I doesn't seem to pop out like the old forum does, like it doesn't feel as bold and solid. Give it time in the hands of people like Costy and tj though and it'll be a blazing bit of kit like the old one.

    Loved it all to be honest with you! Lake Street Dive are fantastic, love the sound and the singers voice is incredible. She reminds me of a sober Amy Winehouse! FAROFF are amazing as well. Such clean remixes, loved the Joan Jett/Beatles/Cypress Hill one especially. Oh, it's also the first time I've heard a version of Lady Gaga I can actually listen to! ;)

    Religion, especially those that worship the god of Abraham, and corporatism. The abolishment of religion should be one of the highest of our priorities though. It's dangerous for a number of reasons. It allows people to be easily led, teaches people to be apathetic towards suffering, leads people to believe that there's an overall plan that's unchangeable, teaches people to look forward to death more than life, teaches people that belief is greater than evidence, that magical thinking is acceptable. There's just so many reasons it would take an entire thread just to explain it! lol The American health care system and their irrational attitude towards all things socialism is a good example of why corporatism is dangerous, and I think religion helps with that.

    Sadly, it's the UK becoming more like the US. It's breaking my heart to be honest. :(

    I do, but to be honest I spend most of time chatting to Sadaf on it. If you give me a few days notice though it'd be cool, would love to take part.

    lol It would appear so. I think the more pertinent question though is do all philosophers have THC in their system? ;)

    Fuck knows, but it definitely ain't right! I've been denying the whole ageing thing, but after taking 5 days to start getting over a flu I think I'm gonna have to hold my hands up to being an old cunt!

    To be honest I fucking love The Big Bang Theory! A good standup I was introduced to recently was Jim Jeffries. There's some good stuff out there, it's just few and far between these days.

    Holy fuck YES! I think it captures you quite well to be honest, specially if you were to float a foxes tail off it!

    Cheers my friend, they were great questions! Sorry if my answers seem a little confused, my brain is still a little treacle like from the flu. Look forward to more if you've got 'em! :cheers:

    I don't, you just see it that way because you're a corporatist shill.

    Genius is seen as insanity by those who don't understand it. Or something like that.

    Probably because it has. Still, it looks good enough to get me laid, you virgin.

    The dark side has cookies.

    Last time we went out clubbing he pissed all over the sofa.

    How old is the previous universe again?

    Not since the last bout of scabies.

    Shhh, MI5 are monitoring my internet activities.

    I have no such qualifications.


    My parents were a hob-goblin and an orc.

    TrolleyDave is an old nickname of mine designated to me when I was a trolley collector.

    Sat in front of my computer!

    Cold, wet and dark! :P

    Some kind of gaming trend?

    I haven't used it enough to be able to make an informed comparison. The current software seems pretty good to me though.


    Don't get alot of time at the moment. Bought Borderlands 2 recently though and enjoyed what little time I've had on it.

    It feels like it.

    Wait, WHAT?!?

    Or just wasted, as in my case. ;)

    Even though it sounds a little like a Flaming Lips lyric, isn't it from an old Diana Ross song, or one of those types of singers?

    I've been good, things are going well! Starting a BA in Philosophy and Psychology soon, should be pretty interesting! My plans are getting that, moving to Manchester to be closer to the Mrs, getting a decent job and generally being a trouble maker.

    I'm going to Manchester, I think I may have mentioned that!

    Life is always showing me awesome things, apart from that time the weirdo in the raincoat jumped out from behind the wall. I really didn't like what it showed me than. ;)

    Thanks Veho! :wub: I keep meaning to, just always end up pre-occupied with other things. :(

    Bluey! :wub: Miss you too mate! :hug:


    To be honest, I don't get that much time to delve into it at the moment. For a few years though I felt like it's been stagnating. The WiiU interests me alot though, depending on how well they utilise it obviously. I wasn't so keen on the controller at first, simply because I thought it looked oversized. Now I've seen it more, it intrigues me. I think it's got alot of potential, knowing the gaming industry these days though it'll simply become a gimmick. :(
