If you could only say the word King or Bloops all day, which one would you pick? -Turtle_Fairy


I’d have to go with King. I’d hate only being able to say one single word either way, but at least King is a word! And speaking of which…

What is a Bloop? How are you the King of Bloops? -Ekzim
How did you get your name? -TheXecutioner

It’s a made up word. In around 2014-15 I decided to change my XBOX Live gamertag, as the old one was a reference to a game that I hadn’t played in a while. I knew I wanted it to be King<something>, and eventually I just decided to make up a silly-sounding word, and that’s how I settled on “Bloops.” The similarity between “Bloops” and “Blooper,” by the way, is a coincidence.

What drew you into Minecraft, and why do you continue to play it? -DocBurbs

I started playing in 2010, so I have no idea. I keep playing not for the game, but for the people I play it with.

What are your aspirations in life? -DocBurbs

Enjoy it while I’m here, I suppose. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What is your occupation IRL, and do you enjoy it? -DocBurbs

3D photography/virtual tours, mostly in the real estate industry. I’m also working on getting licensed as a commercial drone pilot.

Why is Texas BBQ superior to others? -DocBurbs

Because we don’t need sauce to make our brisket taste good! #shotsfired

Do you prefer rollerskates or rollerblades? -AdmiralPeaches

Rollerblades, because they’re faster, and fast is good.

Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses, or 1 horse-sized duck? -rothberg1209

Let’s get this out of the way first – the “horse-sized duck collapsing under its own weight” answer is a cop-out. It’s true, but it’s also boring. Now, onto the fun answer! Ducks attack with their beaks, and the idea of getting pecked/bitten by a duck-sized duck is bad enough already. Meanwhile horses tend to leverage their weight by kicking, which means a duck-sized horse wouldn’t be a very effective fighter. Clearly the duck-sized horses are the way to go.

Which Hogwarts house would you be sorted into? What would your patronus animal be? If you had a horcrux, what would it be? -rothberg1209

Ravenclaw. Pottermore says my patronus would be an oryx. I had to look that one up; apparently it’s a type of antelope. And finally, my horcrux would be an ordinary rock, tossed into the ocean. The only reason Voldemort’s horcruxes were able to be identified and tracked down was because each was a meaningful object hidden in a meaningful place. That said, I wouldn’t have a horcrux anyway – using murder as a tool to rip apart your own soul? No thanks.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? -rothberg1209

A rockstar. Still working on that one…

Favorite song, or if that’s too difficult, what’s your favorite music artist/group? -rothberg1209

Destiny Potato – Addict. Actually, just about anything on that album.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? -rothberg1209

Is a pizza an open-faced sandwich?

If you had to live somewhere other than the USA, ignoring language barriers, where would you choose? -rothberg1209

I realize “right about where I live now” probably isn’t the answer you were looking for, but I’m gonna have to go with the Texas Hill Country. Although if I didn’t have to worry about work, I would definitely live a little farther out, like near Spicewood or Marble Falls.

What are your thoughts about pineapple on pizza? -Taters

It’s not for me, but I’m not exactly in a position to judge – I like anchovies on my pizza.

What would be the creepiest thing you could say while passing a stranger on the street? -GhostPenguin

Context, unknown to the stranger: Solo PvP in EVE Online. Statement: “Sometimes when I kill people I’ll keep their frozen corpse as a trophy.”

When did you start riding motorcycles? What got you into it? How often do you ride in a week? What do you ride?  What bikes have you ridden? -Ekzim

I’ve actually only been riding for about two years now. I’ve always thought motorcycles were kinda cool, but it wasn’t until I started spending time with someone from my one of my CS classes – who rode a Ducati Monster 696 – that I realized just how awesome they are. I ride a lightly-modified Yamaha FZ-07, and I definitely credit that Duc for turning me on to the world of naked sportbikes. I try to ride as often as I can, which usually comes out to 3-4 times a week. I really wish I could commute on it, but sadly that’s not an option with all my equipment. I’ve also ridden a GSX-S750 an old Nighthawk, but the FZ is the only bike I’ve actually owned.

Is it Soccer or Football? -kungfutuber

It’s clearly soccer. Why on Earth would you call the sport that involves using your feet to maneuver a ball “football?”
