20 Questions

No, not this nice little “artificial intelligence” game, but a bunch of irrelevant(?) questions that have been making their way around German blogs (I assume similar stuff exists in English, too) – here my translation:

  1. Take the nearest book, open page 18 and quote line 4.
    “…to do with modern physics: the mystery that the great British physicist Sir…”
  2. Reach out with your left arm as far as possible. What do you hold in your hand?
    to front: the frames of two TFT monitors; to left: nothing :)

    Jay Leno

  1. Except your computer, what are you hearing right now?
    a little street noise
  2. When was your last step outside?
    this morning
  3. What did you do just before you started this questionnaire?
    surf a little – how else would I have found it?
  4. What are you wearing now?
    jeans & T-shirt (won’t tell about the underwear :wink: )
  5. Did you dream last night?
  6. When was the last time you laughed?

    don’t think so

    for starters, a nice little house
  10. Tell me something about you that I didn’t know yet.
    what you didn’t know you’re not supposed to know :mrgreen:
  11. Do you like to dance?
    I can’t dance, I can’t talk. Only thing about me is the way I walk.
  12. George Bush!
    Homer Simpson!
    (but that was no question/request…)
  13. Imagine your first child was a girl. What would you call her?
    I’ll start to think once it should come to that

    moerdergross aehnliche CD`s fuer eine Art von
    Video Recorder ? Sollte es an dem sein, dann draengelt sich mir die Farge auf : gibt es die Dinger noch ? 8O

    Danke – hört man doch gern :)

    Wenn du den Cursor über das normalerweise unterstrichelte “PVR” führst, sollte die Erklärung erscheinen: PVR=Personal Video Recorder, meist gleichbedeutend mit Festplatten-Receiver – also nix altmodisches, sondern die moderne Variante von Videorecordern. Da kann man auch mal einen Film ein paar Wochen liegen lassen, bevor man ihn anschaut.

    an diese Pizza grossen CD aehnlichen “Objecte” anno 1995 .

    Oh ha – es hat den Anschein, als waere Wiki P. deine zweite Westen
    Tasche … Aber ich glaube, diese “Teller Mienen” meine ich .

    Solange man noch weiß, wie diese “Riesen-Untersetzer” heißen, ist es kein Problem, mal schnell den Wikipedia-Artikel zu verlinken…

    Ich selber kenn die Dinger nur aus dem Platten-/Videoladen.
