So cool! Mia Farrow is gorgeous and another wonderful human being like Audrey Hepburn.

I cannot tell you how much those Godzilla movies freaked me out! Thanks for answering me. :)

@lykopis: No problem, feel free to ask more. I am very bored right now lol.

@vortex13: k -- I will!

Horizontal, vertical or diagonal stripes? Which would you prefer in a pair of slacks, shirt and blazer?

Why haven't you provided more baby hippos pictures?

What is your most favourite memory of archery? Are you able to hit a bullseye? If so, from what distance?

Have you almost shot someone with an arrow?

How are you in the game of darts?

Pickles or olives -- which do you prefer as a snack?

Vertical. More slimming.

Because I have these,

Being in a small archery competition at the Robin Hoof Spring Time Renaissance Faire last year and making it to the second round. First volley was great five arrows shot, three in the center ring two in the ring just around the center one. Second one sucked though lol. I have hit the bulls-eye many times on my target, or I should say the center ring, the farthest I've been when I've hit it is at the very edge of my yard and the target is at the other. That is a distance about ninety feet (or 27.432 meters... since you are Canadian and use the evil wicked metric system)

I have never almost shot a person with an arrow. I am extremely safe when their are other people around when I am shooting, my rule is that no one is allowed in front of me while shooting regardless of how out of the line of fire they are. Now there is a tree out of the line of fire down the line too the target that my friend went behind to take a picture of me and that has now become a regular place to do it.

I'm pretty good at darts. I actually got a professional dart board for Christmas about three to five years ago (I forget exactly how long ago) that has doors in front with chalk boards on the inside of the doors to keep score. I haven't played in a while though.

I actually don't like either lol.

I can't even....they are just....omg **melts**

And wow -- so you do know what you're doing and not just pose like Errol Flynn (j/k). Good on you for being so safety minded.

And it's spelled metre. Sheesh.

GAH -- neither of them??? So what do you like for a snack?

Posted by Vortex13

@lykopis:

Lol. I never try to do some kind of special pose when someone is taking pictures of me shooting. I just shoot like I normally would, oh and Errol Flynn?

We'll if we are going with healthy snakes grapes, baby carrots, blueberry's, blackberry's and raspberry's.We actually just made a garden in our back yard and we have blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, and blackberry bushes now. Oh I also like cherry's and we do have two cherry trees but they have never given us fruit in the like 5 years we've had them.

All great snacks -- I am enjoying a bowl of strawberries as I write this although one thing I really like is frozen grapes.

aww thanks! ^_^. I actually just got it two weekends ago at the Renaissance fair. As well as that back quiver and recurve bow in the photo lol.

I forgot my favorite snake though! =O. Apples! Living in New England is awesome for getting great tasting apples. In the fall we go to an apple orchard about 30 minutes away and pick our own from the trees. They also sell their own fresh apple cider at the orchard so I always get a gallon of that lol. I also eat the whole apple, everything but the stem.

@vortex13:

You are spoiled. Spoiled rotten. How many bows do you have? (and quivers?)

And know you are downright mean. I want my very own apple orchard - it would be heaven. Have you tried apple sauce? Like, freshly made with cinnamon?

@lykopis: Hey, I payed for the bows myself. lol, I have three bows, my first was a compound bow that I got for Christmas when I was 19 (ok, so I didn't pay for them all lol), over a year later I bought my long bow at the ren fair. And then two weekends ago at the same ren fair I bought my recurve from the same guy. I have four quivers. Two of them are traditionally made ones out of leather that I got from the same guy I bought my bows from, as well as two dozen traditionally made arrows. I have two hip quivers but only one of them I use (the other one is kind of s##ty) that has two dozen carbon arrows in it.

It's not like I own an apple orchard lol, I have had homemade apple sauce that was made from apples originating from the aforementioned orchard. It was delicious!

@xwraith said:

Indeed I am. Western Massachusetts in a small town near Springfield to be a little more precise.

@vortex13:

It's possible to spoil yourself, you know. ;p

Based on where you live, you could plant an orchard nearby (lucky you) and yeah, fresh apple sauce is sooooo good.

You say traditional -- traditional as in medieval, right? Not Native American.

@vortex13: I guess that makes us further away than I thought. I live in Rhode Island, wedged between Attleboro and Seekonk.

Edited by Vortex13

@lykopis: Yes I mean medieval. I think the next bow I would get would be a horse bow, which was invented by the Mongolians. Though some could argue the Hungarians but the Mongolians, or Huns, occupied the area that is now known as Hungry so the credit is due to them.

Favourite method of destroying a planet? Favourite method of devouring a cat? WRPGs or JRPGs? Does your dad have a beard?

@kingofash:

Releasing an genetically engineered virus into the atmosphere that will alter plant matter and animals to be poisonous for consumption. By doing this all life will die and I will then have free rule over what is left of the worlds resources. After I have plundered all I want I will load it into several indestructible space ships with automated flight capabilities and have them fly to my immensely large mobile space station. I will have bored several holes at key locations and once I am safely on my station I will drop an even number of all the missiles and nukes left on earth into each hole and set them off shattering the earth into fragments.

Ripping off it's head and sucking out the marrow of it's spine.

WRPG's. I play them a great deal more at least.

Yes my father does have a beard. A full one but trimmed close, it is a mix of silver and white in color. If he was enormously fat and grew both his hair and beard out to make them long he would make a good Santa.

Do you own any suction cup arrows?

No, but I have special arrows too. The sharp pointy kind that will rip right through you.

I have not played any Donkey Kong games in a loooong time but I do remember enjoying playing it when I did. I had the game on my gameboy lol.

I have not.

Honestly? I don't remember, I think it was just the first number that came to mind. I wouldn't have had a number but apparently there was already someone who was just plain ole' vortex. Which was slightly annoying since I have literally never seen a post from that person, and I've been here for five years.

I like Green Arrow more.

I do think Hawkeye is the better archer though.

The reason I like Green Arrow more is, in part, due to him having to practice continuously and him constantly trying to better himself. Whereas in most depictions of Hawkeye he simply hits the target with no problem though I do recognize that he has been struggling recent issues of his series. I just find an archer struggling to maintain and improve their skill more appealing. Plus Green Arrow is awesome lol.

@vortex13: Most embarrassing thing that's happened to you in public? =O

Yay! ^_^.

Ok well it was in high school, freshmen year I believe, and I was at the local mall. It was very crowded and I was very tired I was on a little over a full day before I was with some friends and at one point I just passed out in the food court. I was out before I fell but apparently my face hit a table where these two people were eating and my nose just like shot blood and I then rolled off the table into the girls lap and then slid to the floor. I wake up like a minute later with a crowd around me looking concerned and I see a girl with blood covering her lap. I was extremely confused and the first thing I said was "Is there something on my face?" And there was! Blood! lol.

Do you think raccoon's should have a shoes size? =O

I'm a hobbit! Except for the short thing. But I walk around barefoot outside all the time and my feet are pretty hairy. If you want to see a picture of those woolly sucker's I'd be happy to post lol.

I had a tomb raider game on my gameboy when I was like 11 or 12 and loved it. I bought the most recent one last week and it is fun as hell. I just like her character. Badass female protagonist, that's my jam! lol. I also like that in the most recent one she isn't this super over sexualized character which makes it more appealing to me than some of her other games. Plus, BOW'S!!!

Hehe! xD I'm surprise that doesn't hurt your feet. =O Must be very used to it. ^__^

Ah wow! 0.0 Longtime fan. =O I never played Tomb Raider til this reboot to be honest lol. I never got the appeal of Lara before but, I love how she looks more normal with her body proportion and how she has more depth. Actually have a girl crush on here. xD Can't wait for the sequel. =D Bows! Gotta love bows! Especially ones made of Kryptonite!

Posted by Vortex13

@samimista: Oh yeah I'm way used to it lol. Keep in mind my yard is either grass or moss lol. But yeah I have no problem walking over rocks either, I mean it's a slight discomfort but probably not something on the level others may feel if they did it lol. And I sometimes go in my woods barefoot too, I know my woods pretty well and I'm usually on the trails which I know very well lol. I'd love to do the hot coals thing to see if I was good at that lol.

Posted by Samimista

@vortex13: You really are tough. 0.0 I always like wearing socks. xD My feet are clean but it feels so cold being bare footed to me. xD Ah moss. =D I love moss. ^__^ Especially the smell of it.

Is there any wild animals in your woods?

Posted by Vortex13

@samimista: Well at least my feet are tough lol

Oh yeah lots of animals. I've seen personally red foxes, dear, a coyote, possums, a fisher cat which are related to weasels but are a little bigger and way more viscous, I was glad it was running from me lol, turkeys, one year we had a whole group of them walk through our front yard and too the back. I saw a baby bear in my backyard from the inside of my house. I haven't seen these next two while out in my woods (probably a good thing lol) but I've found tracks and heard one while out there, but I've seen adult bear tracks that were quite large and therefor I was glad it was an old track that I came across lol, I heard two moose's making noises and them walking through the area by my yard and they were big. I also saw soon after that on the first snow fall Moose tracks going threw my front yard. Two sets of tracks actually one large one small, so it was probably a momma wit a babeh. Oh I've also found trees with shredded bark on the side which is something bears do to get grubs or mark their territory. They strip up their bark with their claws and then rub their backs against it to scratch mark it by getting their body odor on it lol. There was actually bear fur on it lol. Also I've seen owls. There were three youngster owls last year that were in our back yard pretty much every night for like one and a half months lol. I have a pic of them I can share.

Oh I forgot one.... a raccoon mommy with her babies in a tree! =D.

As promised, owls,

Posted by Samimista

@vortex13: There's a mommy raccoon there? =O I'd love to live in that forest! 0.0 Foxes are awesome too. =D At the wildlife rescue farm I was at a month back I saw a blue Russian fox. 0.0 Thought it was a baby wolf at first. Looks so similar. =O

My neighbor actually has a possum living under their house. 0.0 They were gone for over a year teaching at an Indian retreat in New Mexico but came back last week. Over a month ago my mom saw the possum walk out around 8 AM. 0.0 Didn't know they're still up then. Hoping the possum isn't pregnant. I haven't seen it yet myself.

Aw. Baby bears. =D That must be scary at first though seeing that outside of your house lol. We have black bears here. I live on the nature coast of FL so there's wilderness as well. My brother and I were walking through trails in a state park and someone told us wild boar are usually there. 0.0 We had no idea either. xD

D'aw! Such cute owls. <3 Amazing how you can capture those pictures. =D

Posted by Vortex13

@samimista: It was actually the moose that scared me more. Black bears will typically run away from you, a moose? Those things what 1,500 lbs and are pretty aggressive. The funny thing is my woods aren't even that large lol. But there are a lot of other large (and small) patches of wood's around me so sometimes when they're on the move they go threw are woods. Granted the smaller animals do live in these woods as well as the deer. It's illegal to hunt in the woods around where I live so the animals seem to know to come here during hunting season.
