Questions and Answers for the Angry Reject!

TV during the day sucks blue whales ass and I actually miss the Olympics coverage and even the asshole questions that some presenters asked athletes who had failed to qualify or only win bronze or silver medals!!!!!!
So myself and Ray in one of our frequent painting funks, breaks from hurling abuse at each other and searching for women's beach volleyball (Ray wanted to watch the men's instead!) decided to set some questions to each other instead of plotting to do each other harm, so have a read and maybe have a chuckle at Ray the git!


1.       Favourite Wargaming period and why?
 Sengoku Period of Samurai Warfare 1550-1615, started by watching Kurosawa movies and finalised with 28mm Perry Miniatures.

5.       Favourite book and author?

 ........many more obviously!

6.       Greatest General? Can’t count yourself!!

7.       Favourite Wargames rules?
Akula's AR:SE rules, got me back into gaming and Games Workshop LOTR rules, very adaptable!

8.       Favourite Sport and team?
For my sins 1985 and the Superbowl introduced me to American Football and the Chicago Bears!



9.       If you had a only use once time machine, when and where would you go?
Would have gone back and spoken to Michael Collins about postponing a trip where he was assassinated, this may not have prevented future attempts but I would have liked to have seen what Ireland would have become with him alive and at the helm!

10.   Last meal on Death Row!
 A couple of Burger King Double Cheeseburgers, a couple of McDonalds large fries and a couple of large Cokes!

11.   Fantasy relationship and why?
Pamela Anderson and I don't understand the why?



12.   If your life were a movie, who would play you?
George Clooney or if I'm really honest it would have to be John Goodman!



13.   Favourite Comic  Superhero?
The Punisher, I liked the vigilante story and no superpowers!




14.   Favourite Military quote?
"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country, he won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country!" Patton.



15.   Historical destination to visit?
 Osaka Castle, Japan!



16.   Biggest Wargaming Regret?
Doing WW2 5 times and in 3 different scales, one should have been enough!

17.   Favourite Fantasy job?
Brazilian female volleyball team masseuse or a Mythbuster!



18.   Favourite Song, Top 5?
1. Johnny Cash: Hurt.
2. Bobby Darin: Mack the Knife
3. Gary Jules: Mad World.
4. Lana Del Ray: Born to Die.
5. Clearance Clearwater Revival: Fortunate Son.



19.   Favourite wargaming moment!
 The look on Ray's face when he asked me to move one of his leaders in a Napoleonic game for one of his cavalry units on my side of the table and I moved the figure within 2 inches of the cavalry unit, they took casualties, the leader was within 2 inches, I rolled a 1 on a D20 and he died and I won the game by the that leaders death, he still bitches about it to this day!

20.   The miserable Git question, what upsets you?
Ambulance chasers, spammers, most TV ads, bankers, texting, whatever happened to talking?, people who talk during a movie, traitors especially those who put themselves before Ireland in the past, bullying, reality TV, free-loaders and........Ray! We limited this to eleven because there would be more and in all seriousness it would have gone into the hundreds!





    You're more than welcome to have a go yourself and remember it's not a virus!

  1. Fantastic set of questions and, I have to say, some superb answers. Might have to have a go of this myself.

  2. Great list, great pics. Some dodgy choices though, David Gemmel? Really.

    Btw, lately why does every blog (mine included) need to include a lassies beach volleyball picture? Never mind, rhetorical question.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I really can't understand, how we missed all the ladies beach volleyball during the Olympics, being as we saw nearly all of the rest of it!!!
    Great answers Fran, I do come up with some great ideas, don't I?

  4. That was hugely entertaining. Now I'm off to read Ray's answers.

  5. First problem I have is that I keep homing in on Q20 and can't stop listing things. Second problem is that the only bloody actor I can think of is Danny DeVito unless I lie outrageously. Honesty is a terrible burden . . . .

    ReplyDelete
  6. okay, that was some good and solid Q/A responses... yeah GO BEARS... I was there. and there is nothing wrong with being a blog whore, we all have to be somewhere.

  9. Just came from Rays Blog. Interesting awnsers to the questions. Some dodgy ones (probably less dodgy than what I would have picked if I am hinest.)

    But Rays Picture of you is PRICELESS! Totally funny!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Interesting quiz. I think I'll give this some thought. An interesting insight into the mind of an Angry Lurker, ahhhhhhh!

  12. Solid questions.. will have to look into answering them myself in the future..

    Also.. love the last de-motivational poster! Epic..

  13. Miami Vice, I would never have expected that of you. Just promise me you'll never, ever dress like Don Johnson and if you do don't tell me and have all pictures destroyed.

    You go talk to Michael and I'll slide up next to a couple people in the dark with a knife hidden in my pocket and we'll change history.

  14. Great fun :) I knew your answer for fantasy relationship would be that... 5th favorite song is one of my favorites, yet I didn't quite squeeze it in my answers- I did a blog post for these questions just now, thanks for the idea :)

  17. I don't know if I have a clearer picture or more muddled one now! Off to read the counterpart, and then maybe have a shot at it as well.

  18. I miss beach volleyball. Every 4 years, it's the only reason for watching the olympics!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think that may have just made my day!

  20. Some great tunes, and yeah John Goodman would be a great fit and stargate atlantis too, have to agree with that.

    Favourite military quote..well I don´t know who said it but it´s not bad; War does not determine who is right - only who is left

  22. I spent twenty minutes reading this post... I've learnt that Brazilians spell their country's name with an S... there was some other stuff I didn't bother reading though.

    1. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's all great stuff as usual, but it took me twenty minutes to notice the Brasil thing... so much going on in that one photo alone that deserves attention.

      Second visit, I've noticed they're wearing green and yellow bottoms, how 'bout that! Can't believe I missed that the first time.
