How did I manage to miss this? My first question originates from my own obsession with archery:

  • Longbow or Compound?
  • How accurate are you?
Posted by Vortex13

@deranged_midget: Well, I enjoy shooting my longbow more because I feel it's more challenging and it was and made in a medieval style and I am such a nerd for medieval culture. But the compound bow is definitely more practical in combat and or hunting situations. Side bit of information, I'm saving up for the next Renaissance fair near me and I'm going to buy a medieval style recurve bow this time.

As for accuracy I'm pretty good. I almost never miss the target even when I'm at the very edge of my yard (my target being on the opposite side) and that's a distance of about 90 feet. when I'm 50 feet away I'm almost always inside the outer ring. My target is three feet by three feet and has four rings including the center. Out of the rings is just white. Lately I've been practicing moving around while shooting. It's the best I can do for simulating a moving target since I have no one volunteering to throw some out in the air for me lol.

@vortex13: Haha, I'm the exact same! I prefer a Longbow because of the feel and style! I lurve the medieval era weaponry! :D Although, I haven't practiced in years now so I can't really speak for anything :P

@vortex13: When I was a little girl visiting my cousins in Upstate, NY. A little bat came through the chimney and was limping around the living room near the TV. My older cousin Richard J was on the couch but asleep while everyone else was in the dining room. I went over to everyone and kept exclaiming, "Bat, bat, bat!" everyone thought I meant Batman until they saw an actual bat. XD Love bats. Really adorable.

As for your last picture, I have a female Albino hedgehog named Sega! Late June marks a year since I've had her. =D They're legal where I live. ^__^

Do you like alligators?

If Elton John has the Crocodile Rock would you want the Hippopotamus Pop?

Favorite candy?

@deranged_midget: There is actually a medieval museum in Worcester Mass that I went to not long ago, it was pretty cool they had lots of suits of armor and medieval weapons on display, the second floor of the place was the best though. They had all sorts of thing to interact with. They had suits of armor on chains so you could try them on as well as helmets and stuff. I have a fair amount of pictures from it. I can post some if you want. They had a gift shop and I bought a miniature trebuchet you build yourself and a necklace that was the Celtic symbol for protection. I also have two medieval swords, one medieval hand ax, two katana's and a Chinese broad sword. I am likely to keep buying medieval weaponry too lol.

@samimista: I'm pretty sure we have bats in our atic which isn't exactly a good thing but at dusk I get to see them fly around in our yard catching bugs. I actually had one fly real close to my head last summer in my front yard. It was pretty cool lol.

I love Hedgehogs, which is why I was sooo happy when Sebastian lived (a point to anyone who gets that reference.)

Now onto answers to the questions, I do like alligators a lot. When I was a kid I actually wanted to be a herpetologist and study reptiles. This was after I apparently wanted to be a male model. My parents explained that to me when I saw a picture of myself as a kid doing some kind of pose lol.

I feel like anyone who attempted to do the hippopotamus pop would make the song unsuccessful in showing how awesome hippo's are.

I'm actually not a big candy guy. When I was little I was (aren't all little kids lol) but not these days, that being said once in a blue moon I will have a peanut butter and Hershey bare sandwich lol. In case you're wondering, there is no bread that is substituted with half a Hershey bar on the top and the bottom of the peanut butter lol.

Posted by Samimista

@vortex13: Ah. They really are adorable. ^__^ Before I got my hedgehog I looked into owning a bat for a pet but you can't. D= It's understandable though since it would be cruel keeping a bat without freedom to roam around.

To be honest I love crocodiles and alligators (don't know the difference between them?) if they didn't have teeth and claws I'd hug em. =D Living in Florida I see quite a lot of gators. Very much common here. Sometimes even at the fishing dock I see otters going over and under the bridge. ^__^

That is so true. No one can define their awesomeness! =D

Oh my...0.0 Just the thought of that made my mouth watery. xD Ah I eat so bad at times. Even had Reese's Cups not long before replying to this. xD

Posted by Vortex13

@samimista: It is awesome, especially because it's better peanut butter and chocolate then you would get from a regular reeses cup lol.

As for the differences between alligators and crocodiles, alligators have broader snouts and their teeth are hidden when their mouths are closed and the the side ridges on the back of alligators are larger than the ones in the middle. Crocodiles have a narrow snout you can see their teeth when their mouths are closed and the ridges down the middle of their bakes protrude higher than the ones on the sides. The hard part when knowing that remembering which is which lol.

Some visual guides,

I did when I was a kid.

Heh, well I did, and I might very well still have them but I'm on medication and I haven't seen or heard one word from them since I was 19. lol For the record I am not joking, feel free to ask more questions about what I have and my experiences with this. Honest I am very open about these things and would be more than happy to enlighten people about it.

Thanks :) And that works both ways, I have my own...um..."problems", as do a lot of my family members, and I find it is best to be open about it. It is nothing to be ashamed of after all :)

So then first question: what condition or conditions do you have, specifically?

Edited by Vortex13

@bumpyboo: Well when I first was diagnosed me when I was 16 they said I was a schizophrenic. At this time I admitted to being suicidal to my parents and I suggested that I should get some kind of treatment. So I went to the psych ward of a local hospital. Two weeks in patient, one week out. It sucked lol.

Now with my new psychologist/therapist, who is much better than the ones had at the ward, has diagnosed me with Manic Depression (or bipolar it's the same thing), social anxiety disorder, possible PTSD, and an additive of symptoms of psychosis. Not psychosis itself though, that diagnoses is used to explain the fact that I used to hear voices and sometimes see the two non-existing and quite annoyingly vocal individuals who supplied them lol. That's it and it's quite enough I believe lol.

Posted by BumpyBoo

@vortex13: Wow, that is a lot to deal with. And yet you are so upbeat usually, that really speaks to your character :)

Yes, it is very common for those kinds of misdiagnoses, especially with schizophrenia. Someone very close to me suffered a long time with that, and it is notoriously difficult to identify.

I have PTSD and am possibly bipolar too (we are very much still at the discovery stage), and I have heard that psychosis symptoms are quite common in manic depressive people. Must be pretty scary though. Luckily, I do not have that particular symptom, but my heart goes out to you, that has to be tough to live with.

Thank you for being so open, though, it is appreciated :)

1. Since you mentioned longbow shooting earlier, who do you like more: Green Arrow or Hawkeye?

2. Should I do a blog like this?

Posted by Vortex13

@bumpyboo:Well I've become very used to it lol. I do occasionally have bad days but I try to get through them. The way I stay upbeat/appear(lol) upbeat is because I try to not take anything seriously. I joke a lot (possibly too much), I'll admit that trying to take nothing seriously is a bit of a defense mechanism but it seems to work for the time being lol.

@xwraith: I like Green Arrow more. I find him more amusing and just more fun. Plus he struggles with his ability in archery whereas Hawkeye is always getting the shot perfect without much difficulty. I like that Green Arrow has to practice, he's still amazing but he is constantly trying to better himself in that field. At least that's how I've always seen him.

Yeah why not, its kind of fun and people get to learn more about you. =)

I would say Tae Guk Gi is definitely better than saving private Ryan and somehow accomplishes the nigh Sisyphean task of having an even more depressing ending. You've seen it I take it?

Because most Americans still have the belief that we are the greatest country in the world and therefor believe we don't need to change. So a lot of the public and politicians fight to people who want to change the way our country is run. A very American phrase that kind of explains this viewpoint would be "If ain't broke, don't fix it." There also seems to be a great distaste to a socialist type of society perpetuated by this somehow lingering validation of the red scare and hatred of communism being legitimate, and confusing it with socialism. It is incredibly stupid to believe that we are the best country and we are doing everything right when you look at other country's stats compared to our own. Most countries in Europe have a higher quality of life rate, longer national life span, higher successful criminal rehabilitation numbers, and despite what many news broadcaster's in this country say better actual healthcare. I'm not even referring to what is dubbed as a socialized health care system I'm simply referring to actual medical care itself. What I've said is definitely an overly simplified explanation but yeah, that's what I believe.

Social Democracies are fine by me and many of them function better than how the American system is currently functioning. Granted there our always flaws in systems of government. But I feel a lot of Americans are unnecessarily stubborn to change.

@vortex13:

I have so many favorites so it is hard to pin down... I'll list my top five in no particular order,

Samurai Jack

Justice League (I'm counting unlimited with this)

Batman the Animated Series.

Gargoyles.

Spawn.

I do incline pushups and last time I did them I did 40 in a row.

@vortex13: Now that I do understand. Absolutely :)

So do you think you are a more understanding person with regards to others because of your own experiences?

Moderator
Posted by Vortex13

@bumpyboo:

I'd like to think so. In fact I usually take a more understanding approach when talking about stuff like this when it's brought up in conversation or see stuff on the news. In the US mental illness is extremely misunderstood by the wider populace and there are a lot of misconceptions about what people who have mental illnesses are like. I feel that is mainly due too criminal investigation shows that when they feature a serial killer they almost always suffer from some mental illness. Same with movies. But it doesn't really effect me anymore, now I just try to educate people when it comes up.

Posted by BumpyBoo

@vortex13: Good point, in fact don't they say that statistically most mentally ill people are more likely to harm themselves? I have always been kind of irritated by the way it is portrayed in the media, like everyone with any kind of psychosis or any form of mental illness is going to stab you. Couldn't be further from the truth. A lot of people don't stop to think about how they would feel, if they went through the same things and felt the same way. It can be so isolating and so frightening when your own mind turns against you, when you can't trust it.

I guess all we can do is just try to educate people, as you say. There will always be ignorant people, but slowly I think people are becoming more aware of mental issues, and the misconceptions surrounding them.

1. Yes, I have. I loved it. It was very realistic. I only know a few Korean words, though. lol I really needed those English subtitles. Other than Taegukgi and Saving Private Ryan, I can't think of any other good War films. I would recommend Enemy At The Gates and The Pacific. I would also recommend Thirteen Days, even though it isn't a War film. Black Hawk Down was also very realistic, but I didn't like it that much, for some reason.

2. Very true. Apparently, the income inequality gap in this country is huge. I wonder what I should do because I happen to be a dual citizen. Should I move to Europe or stay here? lol Or maybe I can just move to the Midwest or the South because my area (Connecticut) is too expensive. I am sure that the rest of New England is a little too expensive as well. Who knows? What are your thoughts on the Massachusetts health care system? Isn't that a type of "universal health care"? I wonder how that is working. Also, any thoughts on Obamacare? Is it going to work? Why can't we have both private health care and universal health care in this country? That might make things more affordable.

3. Also, there is too much of an emphasis on homes here. Any thoughts on condominiums? I like them so far, but who knows what will happen with those HOA fees. I don't like cooperatives because they have strict requirements, and you only get to own the shares. Renting apartments doesn't seem to stable to me.

Full metal jacket isn't bad, it is a totally different kind of war movie though. Although my Grandfather said that the military boot camp and training conditions depicted in it were very accurate to what it was really like. Which is kind of disturbing really lol. One I like but isn't all that realistic is The Thin Red Line. It's kind of an existential depiction of war so it's more interesting then realistic.

I live in Massachusetts lol. I have health insurance through my dad's job though, but it's a good first step here, and don't you mean Romnycare . I call it that is because what was dubbed Obama care is essentially the same set up as what Romney did in this state People tend to not realize that, lol.

I think it is a good step forward personally. The fact that it was able to be passed through the senate and congress alone if a big step for this country. People need to realize that taxes are something necessary, the tax level in other countries with these programs is extremely high comparative to our country true. But honestly I'm willing to sacrifice more money if it raises the quality of living level. I've heard about, seen, and even experienced some of the horror stories from our current health care system. I think it can work if it is not opposed so greatly. I'm not sure if private and universal healthcare and work together. I do believe private health facilities can work but I'm honestly not sure how it would work, it would take a better mind than mine with more experience in how the whole system functions to work it out.

I see you're point there, and I agree there seems to be a big emphasis not just buying homes in this country but really in most things. It is definitely a materialistic culture we live in. To me that comes partly from what I call the American Dream Mentality. What that means is that because of the idea that when you hit it big you stay there which make most people make impulse buys and wish to own whatever they can even things they have no use for. This is true in a lot of places but I feel because of the way this belief holds so strong to people they want it, I feel in the US more than most places there is this view of pricey objects as a status symbol. Sorry I went waaaaaaaaaaaaay of topic lol, but I think condominiums work for some people. But there are some people (like me) who want a degree of isolation and privacy and freedom to manipulate their living spaces without having to run it by several different individual people. And it's hard to get that without owning a home but you can sometimes find a place in the middle of no where for rent so that's nice. I'm not that familiar with housing issues to be honest. I still live with my parents lol. Like I've previously stated in this thread I have certain mental issues that would make it difficult for me to live on my own, and not necessarily entirely safe for me to be honest.

I'll check that out.

Yes, I was referring to "Romneycare". Sorry. lol Just wondering how that was for the state of Massachusetts.

I see. Those are good points. However, the disadvantages that some people constantly complain about universal health care is the longer waiting lists and the overall decrease in the quality of health service. I don't know if that is true, though.

No, you're right. The good thing about apartments in rural areas is that it is much more affordable than it is elsewhere. I was actually looking at Springfield or Worcester.

@edamame: I have friends that live in Canada, every part of the British Isles, France, and one from New Zealand, what I've heard from all of them is that the poor care and long waiting is complete bulls##T.

Moving can be expensive, though. :(

2. lol Awesome. Yes, please. Feel free to give me all the tips and knowledge you have. I might go and live there (or the surrounding areas) one day. I appreciate Massachusetts a lot because it has high standards. Apparently, it is the most well-educated state in America, and the overall standard of living appears to be quite high as well. It is also a very diverse state. I'll probably be looking at apartments, coops or condos there. I have been to Amherst, and that seems to be a nice area.

Posted by Vortex13

Amherst is great. You should also think about the type of environment you want to live in though. Good area's of Springfield are Indian Orchard Sixteen Acres, Boston Road area, and Forest Park. The last one being the best but also the most pricey lol. The have both condo's and apartment buildings, they even actual houses for rent in some spots two. I'm not sure what your price range is though... feel free to PM me and I can let you know other areas that would be in your price range. You obviously don't have to if you don't feel comfortable with doing that. But it might help me narrow your choices down to what areas you'd like to live. I'm going to link you some good sites about real estate in mass.

Here is one, and here is another.

Other places that wouldn't be a bad idea to look at are (like you said) Amherst and Northampton. You should also let me know what type of environment you are looking for. I'm not simply talking about landscape stuff but like social. By that I mean the type of mentality of the area, because all of the talk about Mass being super liberal, law wise it is a bit, some area's in western mass however are fairly close minded. But yea let me know what you're looking for and I'll probably be able to help.

I don't remember if I had any other imaginary friends that weren't cartoon characters but I do remember Joey.

I thought I read these replies earlier but it seems I didn't thoroughly. You have schizophrenia? It always seems people have the wrong idea about that disorder. Especially doctors who assume the people who have it are crazy when really it scares the people who usually have it. Can't stand how others judge someone with disorders and etc. I don't know much about schizophrenia but I'm always here if you ever wanna talk about it.

I could be wrong but I think the reasoning to that is because I've always been more interested in fantasy and reality. Physically I'm on Earth where mentally I'm somewhere else so that could explain it.

@bumpyboo: @samimista: When I was little I actually had fifty-seven imaginary brothers as friends. I don't remember this well, but last time all my siblings were here it was brought up and my response was "they probably all had the same names" and I laughed. I was then informed that they each had a different name as far as they knew, looked different, had different backgrounds. I said "so I just made up a new brother every time?" Turns out I would sometimes reuse older made up brothers with the newer ones and have a conversation with more than one at a time. To me that is some f##king talented specific mass character creation brought on by wanting a brother lol.Oh and they know it was fifty-seven because that's apparently what I stated as the number. I also apparently didn't get along with all of them either lol.

I've got an answer for your favorite superhero question. It just occurred to me. Abe Sapien. I just love him in the comics. I also love him in the Hellboy animated movies, not so much the live action ones though. I do like those movies don't get me wrong, but he's not the real Abe in those movies too me.

@bumpyboo: @samimista: When I was little I actually had fifty-seven imaginary brothers as friends. I don't remember this well, but last time all my siblings were here it was brought up and my response was "they probably all had the same names" and I laughed. I was then informed that they each had a different name as far as they knew, looked different, had different backgrounds. I said "so I just made up a new brother every time?" Turns out I would sometimes reuse older made up brothers with the newer ones and have a conversation with more than one at a time. To me that is some f##king talented specific mass character creation brought on by wanting a brother lol.Oh and they know it was fifty-seven because that's apparently what I stated as the number. I also apparently didn't get along with all of them either lol.

Lol! That's some imaginary family. xD Really cool though. It's like you can make your own cartoon about them. =D Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends.~ I think I was between the ages of 7 - 9 when I stopped seeing my imaginary friend. I always wonder how kids can see them whereas adults can. Wonder if there's some kind of power to that.

@samimista: I think kids are just less bitter and don't have to worry about how their viewed yet or not so much worry, but are incapable of caring how others view them."Oh I have a bugger hanging out? Here let me wipe it off on my hand that has poop on it because I was playing with some that I found in the playground. Ok lets play Jurassic Park now!" You don't see grownups acting like that...usually. But that is the reason I stay the hell away from kids.

They are disgusting helpless things. And they take for freaking ever to grow up! Look at a bear, it can walk in a day, and after two years of parenting it's prepared to kill a god damn moose on it's own. I human kid at two can't even go to the bathroom on their own, because they will just poop there pant's and walk around with it there.

I actually read a science article that said that humans (and a lot of other mammals interestingly) are actually genetically geared to find babies cute, particularly their own babies. I feel this is most definitely a needed thing for humans biologically, because there are some types of people that will return a misbehaving pet to the store (I wouldn't) but since you can't do that with a human baby (I would) it is a needed biological quirk. The article was way more interesting, coherent, and well worded then my summation of it but hey, what am I going to do? Search for an article I read like a year ago? Hell no, it's lazy time.

Lol! Ironically I don't find babies cute at all. Least human ones. Animals are adorable. That does make sense though with how mothers adore their babies. I agree with your previous reply too. Never want kids for that reason along others. I wouldn't mind raising an older kid that's like 11 or 12 since that's somewhat better but can't do young kids lol. I'll stick to being the raccoon lady. =D

Just wanted to say -- I love how open you are. You always were and we've had great conversations but I am so glad to see it on here where others can benefit from your experiences and you fantastic attitude. Kudos to you, seriously.

K -- on to the question:

Fluorescent yellow or orange? Which would you wear if forced to wear it for the rest of your life.

Do you wear cologne? If you do, what kind?

I still say walrus babies are cuter than hippopotamus babies but holy heck, that picture above almost changed my mind. Why would you do that to me? Why?

Can I wear both mixed together in the same shirt/pants? Because if I can that's what I choose, it would look like I was on freaking fire! 8D

I do not wear cologne. I do wear Old Spice deodorant usually if that counts. Oh and next time you at are at a store that sells deodorant, read the back of an old spice one. It's pretty funny, I only realized what it says on the back about a month ago because I didn't really care what it said on the back and I've been using that brand for like two years lol. But it's pretty amusing, to me at least.

Because planting the seeds of doubt within the feeble minds of mortals is what I do for fun.... as well as making my own clothing out of the hides of bunnies.
