Favorite Website: Not sure. I guess I’ll go with ScrewAttack.
Most frightened of: Cockroaches. I swear I am terrified of those things. When I was a kid, I’ve had horrific experiences with those things. The first one was when I was 6, I was sitting in the playground, building stuff with the sand, when a hole in the ground bursted with roaches. I was terribly horrified. Then a few years later I was sitting in a chair and a cockroach ran up the chair right next to me, horrifying me again. Then again, I was walking on the sidewalk in Iran, when a gian crowd of them scurried at where I was walking. With no other way to go (next to me was traffic, I was forced to walk through them. I literally cannot look at those things without being horrified.
Most Embarrassing Moment: I can’t think of one that really embarrassed me, but a recent one was when I tripped in Church and was reaching to grab my friend as I was falling, but he moved forward and had me landing on my face. It was more painful than embarrassing.
Happiest Moment: I dunno
A Vivid Childhood Memory: My birthday when I was 4. I remember getting this awesome bike and wearing a gray suit with a tie. And I remember there being cake.
Your "good deed" of the century: Nothing, haha.
Guilty Pleasure(s): I don't really have any. Maybe gardening, but that’s nothing that I find a guilty pleasure.
If you had 1 wish, what would it be and why?: Unlimited wishes for my own selfish desires. That would be awesome. Then it would follow with some wishes like ending world hunger. And once those issues were done, I would wish for something stupid like having Spider-Man’s powers.
When refilling your toilet paper, do you prefer it over or under?: I don’t know. I think over, but I don’t put thought into changing toilet paper.
Would be voted "Most Likely to...": Not Do Anything Remarkable
What color are most of your socks?: Going to a Catholic School, I’m not permitted to wear anything other than white, but I prefer black. Those just look way cooler.
What would be the title of a tell-all book about you?: Something generic, like “My Life”
What do you spend too much time doing?:
Studying. Although I end up doing fine in tests, homework, whatever, I usually am nervous about how I’ll do, which ends with me stressing over things that don’t need to be stressed over.
Most treasured possession:
A cross that my math teacher gave me. She was a really important figure in my life, so I treasure it quite a bit. I have it hung on my room, with other various items.
What's always on your grocery list?:
Air freshener. It seems I always run out of that stuff for some reason.
The thing you like best about yourself:
Despite the difficulty of the task, I try my hardest to accomplish it
The thing you like least about yourself:
Sometimes I don’t find any confidence in myself when I’m doing a task. And my stressing. Definitely my stressing.
What should never be discussed in polite company (if anything)?: Your drug hallucinations. Those discussions aren’t exactly something a person might want to hear. Not that I’m on drugs. Unless you’re on drugs, then I take every kind of drug (lolScottPilgrimreference)
Favorite hero: Spider-Man (duh). I don’t know why I liked Spider-Man. Ever since I was a kid, I always found something in him that made me like him so much. And I loved the villains that surrounded him, with some of my favorites being Kraven, Venom, Doctor Octopud, and many more. Until Quesada came and murdered my childhood, I followed the story quite closely.
Favorite villain: Magneto. He’s just a great villain with a great backstory. His presence is terrifying among many heroes, but his original story and previous life is tragic and sympathetic, making him a very 3 dimensional personality, with his intentions being good at times, shrouded in his disgust and overall hate.
Favorite forum thread at Thegameheroes.com, this very moment: Uhhhh. I don’t know
If you were to have a plate in your head, which metal would you choose and why?: Titanium. For no reason whatsoever
Cake or pie?: Pie. Pie is amazing.
What was your first console?: My cousin’s Famicom. I remember playing games like Mighty Final Fight, TMNT Tournament Fighters, Super Mario Bros, TMNT, Super C, and a ton others. But my cousin was a jerk and never let me choose Shredder in TMNT and always died on purpose to steal my lives in Super C.
Your first game for that first console?: Super Mario Bros, Mighty Final Fight, or TMNT: Tournmanent Fighters (can’t remember)
Nerdiest moment: Arguing how the X-Men could easily overcome any of the Star Wars characters for a few hours. I totally won that discussion.
If you were a superhero/villain, which member of the forum would you choose to be your sidekick/henchman, or vise versa?: Probably Tren. He could be my furry sidekick, as we stop evil. Or maybe Debaser. I heard he likes to punch dolphins, so that may come in handy.
If you were playing a tabletop RPG, who would you pick to be your DM?: I dunno. I don’t play tabletop RPGs.
If you were one of Dr. Wily's Master Robots, which one would you be and why?:
Fire Man from Mega Man 1, because he can use fire and it would satisfy the inner pyro in me. Metal Man is cool too. His weapon was super useful.
Any final thoughts before this wraps up?: Nothing really.
Favorite booze: Don’t drink
Favorite console: Super Nintendo. Ever since I first played the SNES Virtual Console, I fell in love with so many classics, like Super Metroid, Street Fighter II, Super Mario World, Super Punch-Out!! (doesn’t get enough love), Super Mario RPG, and plenty of others.
Favorite comic: The Amazing Spider-Man (duh). *see favorite hero on why*
Favorite anime: dunno. I watched only 3, being Cowboy Bebop, Black Lagoon, and Hokuto no Ken.
Favorite manga: Only read like 1
Favorite character: (assuming from film, books, games, etc) The nameless samurai from Yojimbo. I always loved his character and cold nature, which made him the perfect character in the film. Others I would put are Death from The Seventh Seal,
Favorite dance: dunno

Favorite member: Too many
Favorite song: Too many
Favorite band: Another giant list: I The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Metallica, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Guns N' Roses, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Van Halen, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, The Police, Green Day, Michael Jackson, The Who, Queen, Mozart, Beethoven.
Favorite podcast: SideScrollers. I like the new ones, but the 2008 ones with Jose and Ben were the best, followed by the ones where Corey and Destin were still on. We need more intern SideScrollers.
Favorite salutation: Hi
Favorite rank: Phil’s Wesker rank. I like Resident Evil. I also like Wesker. I also like Tyrant.
