You have zombies in Idaho?
You don't have them in Michigan?

So THAT'S where they all came from!

Giant foam dinosaurs?
Love 'em! The green T-Rexes are especially useful to put up around the yard. Helps keep the zombies out.
Couldn't the zombie just bite the foam dinosaur's head off in an attempt to eat it's brain?

They could, but for some reason, they don't. Instead, they just stare for a bit, then attempt to engage the dinosaur in some sort of deep, meaningful philosophical debate.

Mostly consisting of the word "Braaaaiiiinnnnsss...."

They're distracted enough to get rid of them with a shotgun or a pickaxe, though.
Wait... You're MORMON?
Indeed. Didn't used to be, but God told me to join the LDS church. So, I did. :)

Sea Quest?
That was an old TV show, wasn't it? I've seen a few episodes, but not in a long time, obviously.

Or, if you're talking about RPGs, then yes. It's a bad habit of mine. See quest, must accept. :)

The TV show. :D There are many RPG quests I could not accept and be happy about it.

Skyrim?

Best game developer?

Skyrim?
Want. But I'm sure that I'll probably look to see what mods are available for it once I get it. One that would have a way to disable some of the more gorier aspects would be nice. Or, if all else fails, maybe I'll see if there's a way to make that mod myself....
Best game developer?
Yeesh, that's a tough one. Shigeru Miyamoto is the first one to come to mind, but Richard Garriott also is a pretty influential one. Todd Howard comes to mind as well, but that's likely because the previous question was about Skyrim. If we're including all games and not just video games, then Richard Garfield, Steve Jackson and Gary Gygax should be considered as well. I don't think I could narrow it down to just one name.

I meant company...

Oh, you forgot Gabe Newell.

Oh, that's much easier. Nintendo.

You're right, I did. I don't think I've ever played any of the games he's been involved in (maybe Portal... did he do Portal?) That's probably why he slipped my mind.

Yeah. He's the face behind Portal, Half-Life, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, and Steam (well, not the only face, but by far the largest one, and his face is certainly the face of PC gaming).

Best book you've ever read?

You're asking an English Major about the best book he's ever read? Yeesh, twist the knife, why don't you. That's like asking me what my favorite game is....

What genre are we we talking about? Fiction or nonfiction? Can we count tabletop gaming manuals? So many choices!!!!

One book that I particularly enjoyed - meaning read more than once - was 1984. Definitely one of the better books I've read. But there are so many good books out there, such as To Kill a Mockingbird, Shane, A Fine and Pleasant Misery, The Hound of the Baskervilles... and that's just scratching the surface of fiction.

1984 was one of those books that certainly affected my political views.

Ever read Brave New World and if so, what do you think about it?

I have not yet, but I've been meaning to. It's on my "need to read" list, next to "Catcher in the Rye" and "The Three Musketeers."

But related to the topic, just this morning a bunch of other books jumped into my head as notable and worth reading. Horror? And not the garbage horror like Stephen King's dreck.... Try Michael Crichton's "Prey." Humorous fantasy? Terry Pratchett's "Hogfather." Political commentary? Glenn Beck's "Arguing with Idiots." Graphic novels? Jeff Smith's "Bone." So many good selections, not enough time!
