Why do you always take a scientific method in doing everything? Effectiveness? Personal preference?
What movies are you most excited about?
What incomplete cases are you most excited about?


A bit of both, honestly. I find it's fairly effective, and I also tend to think that way.
I don't watch that many movies, honestly... Uh, I think the second Hobbit is coming out in December? That sounds interesting.
Hope Springs Hotel, Turnabout Revolution, and Turnabout Dilemma.

this is the greatest moment in my life

Congratulations, Enthalpy!

If you were stranded on an island that has magically stopped you from using anything to communicate with the world outside the island, and you could only bring three things and three people, who and what would you bring? (The people don't have to be from AAO.)

Favorite form of transportation?

Least favorite form of transportation?

Who do you feel you understand best on the site?

On a scale of one to ten, why was your previous username Pandora?

Off the top of your head, what trait(s) do you consider necessary for you to like a protagonist?

If you could sit down and have a thirty minute talk with ANY person that has died within the last one hundred years, who would it be and why?

Final testimony of 3-2, The Stolen Turnabout. Why so many fangames emulate that testimony and make it even worse, I'll never know.

First off, thank you. Now then...

Purposefully ignoring the fact that most people probably wouldn't want to be forcibly dragged to an island and survival is important... My books, pencils, and paper for items. I'd smuggle in a calculator with batteries in there somehow. People is a rather hard one... I'll be generic and pick random friends and family members.

Typical cars (short distance, land), a small boat (short distance, water) or airplane (long distance.)

Any sort of cycle, such as motorcycle, unicycle, bicycle, or tricycle.

I wouldn't say that I understand anybody particularly well. There's quite a lot of information that people, for very good reason, aren't going to give on the internet. That said, if I had to pick, I would say Enigma, GD, and NN would be in the top three and not get much more specific than that, so as to avoid potential controversy over favoritism.

0/10, would not answer again

Reasonably intelligent, able to have reasonable social and emotional responses, and operating on some level of principle. Facing a sort of dilemma between ideas is also great.

I'm going to pick Margaret Thatcher. As a conservative, I think it would be fascinating to listen to her on her principles and experiences as Prime Minister. She endured her own sorts of shutdowns, so her thoughts on the one over Obamacare/Boehnercare would be exceedingly relevant. Oh, and she was a chemist.

Dear Enthalpy,

Here is my question for you.

What is the color blue?

That is all.

...Nah, I JK.

Here are my REAL questions.

1. What...is your name?
2. What...is your quest?
3. What...is the velocity of an unladen swallow?

To answer all these questions.
Indeterminate.

For the most part, what makes a pun good or bad is presentation, provided that I haven't heard it before. As such, I can't really answer your question except saying that my least favorite pun is unoriginal.

Considering I'm an MST3K fan, this is a hard one... Robot Monster, I'd say, although Sidehackers and Mighty Jack are also pretty high up there.

You know it's been a long time when you don't even recognize the MotM... I mean, I vaguely remember your name from when I was on the verge of becoming inactive, but... xD

Anyway, congrats on becoming the Member of the Month, Enthalpy! :D

Wow, I'm late with all these. Well, let's see...

GuardianDreamer wrote:I realize that I congratulated you on xat, but I never posted here. So congratulations, Enthalpy. Do you happen to have a favorite poem?


Not at present, no. A lot of the poems to which I have been exposed are either extremely abstract or about how hard it is to be [insert demographic here], neither of which I enjoy. Of those that remain, I found none of the rest that impactful.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, I do recall liking "Those Winter Sundays" by Robert Hayden. It's not something I'd want to call a favorite, but that's the only one I remember, and remember liking.

Puzzle.
I liked Animal Crossing when I first played it, but now it just seems tedious to me.
Starcraft 2 is the big one here. I liked the game, generally speaking. But the sheer intensity of the competition... It's just not for me.
Haven't tried them.
