5 Questions from Lucas

August 14th, 2008 | by TJ |

Today’s 5 things are questions from Lucas. Thaaaaanks, Lucas!

1 – If you could be super rich for the rest of your life but would have to live with a tennis ball attached to your forehead, would you?
2 – If you had to pick one person currently in your life and you would only be able to talk to them and noone else for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?
3 – If you could commit one crime and get away with it, what would you do?
4 – Think of only one song you had to listen to for the rest of your life.

    1. No I would not. true riches have nothing to do with money. I just need enough to keep a roof over my head and food in my belly. The world would be a better place if more people thought that way.

    2. I would have to say my wife, and not just because she might read this. =P Actually she is one of my best friends as well.

    3. I would totaly want to access whatever database holds all the top secret “who killed JFK, what really went on at Roswell, WTF do they do at area 51″ type database. not to spread it around, I am just curious why some things are classified.

    4. Probably “in the end” by Linkin Park, but only if I were forced to choose right now. Ask again in 15 minutes and this would likely change based on my mood.

    5. There are some offices I would love to stand in a corner of certain peoples office and see what they actually say and act like when there are no cameras around to pose for. (politicians come to mind off the top of my head)

    And a side note on #3 “Curiosity was framed, Ignorance killed the cat.”

    1. No way, money does not equal happiness.
    2. My GF, Soni. She is super awesome and we are completely goofy together. It’s never a dull moment.
    3. Pull a Ocean’s 11 style heist.
    4. Reel Big Fish – Take On Me
    5. I would go see a lot of free movies, small fries but worth it.

    Wo0t! I’ll be uploading a video response as soon as I can finish my work for the day :P

    … annnnd, I just bought the book. :) I’ve been looking for something new to read recently as Pillars of the Earth started to bore me to tears.


  4. By Dammerung on Aug 14, 2008

    1 – Nope.
    2 – Wulfa, easy.
    3 – Travel back in time take a rose off of one of Queen Elizabeth’s rose bushes, give it to Wulfa.

    If Sci-Fi crimes don’t count: I would steal an aircraft Carrier and crew and force them to be my slaves on my new “luxury yaht”.

    4 – Oooo thats a toss up. “Wild thing”, “Nothing but the blood”, or that river song by the music artist that the movie walk the line is about.

    5 – Climb buildings.

    So what is that thing we’re supposed to help with?


  5. By Grainger on Aug 14, 2008

    1. Great and weird question. My initial answer would be


  6. By Necrobutcher on Aug 14, 2008


    Great answer for #3!


  7. By Andy C. on Aug 14, 2008

    1 – No
    2 – As I’m not in a relationship at the moment, I’d probably have to go with my buddy Chad. He comes up with the most off the wall thoughts and constantly cracks me up, as well as some really sound decisions out of nowhere.
    3 – Something along the lines of Grainger’s, but I’d want it to implicate a lot of crooked politicians.
    4 – I’m hoping this isn’t like a continuous loop, but more along the lines of whenever I felt like listening to music: Stairway to Heaven by Zep.
    5 – The movie thing sounds fun, but I’d probably try to get incriminating evidence on crooked politicians.


  8. By Trackhoof on Aug 14, 2008

    1. Nah.
    2. My sister. She’s freaking awesome.
    3. Jewel thief. I had a plan to do this after college, so that I could go straight into retirement, but everything kind of fell through. I assume that by “getting away with it” that means I’d be able to sell the jewels without getting caught?
    4. If it’s one I can listen to whenever, as opposed to constant repeat, November Rain by Guns N’ Roses. If it’s something I have to be able to drown out because I’ll hear it forever over and over again, Gay Bar by Electric Six.
    5. I think I’d do a mixture of good deeds, messing with people’s heads (floating slurpees), and general invisible shenanigans.


  9. By Brierley on Aug 14, 2008

    1. Tempted but no
    2. My best friend shelley. I can still type/IM to others though right?
    3. Well it depends on if I had a time machine. If I did I would rob Versailles back when Louis was alive, though now that its a museum I would leave it alone. In case of no time machine then definitely some sort of big heist of Fort Knox or some other similar place like an oil company.
    4. Probably something by Wagner; I love music but if I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life I would go insane and the ring cycle would just help me get there a little faster which would reduce my pain.
    5.Probably do #3. I am invisible would be the easiest time to plan a really big heist.


  10. By Anjin on Aug 14, 2008

    1. Not on your life. Interesting the TJ is the only one that’s answered yes so far. :)
    2. This would be my wife. We really are best friends.
    3. The one crime I would commit is to drive across country as fast as possible. Cool is better than money.
    4. Placebo’s Every You Every Me. (Why is it called that when they sing “Every me and every you” in the song? I’m so confused.)
    5. I would use my invisibility to spy on my beautiful wife. I’m curious about what she’s like at work when I’m not around. Probably not much different, but she’s so darn cute.

    1.) How the heck am I the only one to say an unequivocal “Yes!” to this? I can live with the knowledge that there’s a tennis ball lodged in my head. I don’t care. I’m rich! And can spend money to have it removed, suckers!
    2.) My buddy Dave. He’s as nuts as I am.
    3.) Steal the crown jewels right off the Queen of England’s head. That just sounds like fun to me.
    4.) One Particular Harbor by Jimmy Buffett
    5.) I’d be a mischievous jerk, probably. Randomly throw bags of chips around in the local 7-11, send books sailing into asshat customers at the nearby Border’s or listen in on women’s locker-room talk to disect the similarities between men’s talk in said location and that of the fairer sex.


  12. By Pablo on Aug 14, 2008

    1. No. I have enough self esteem issues already, thanks.
    2. My son. He needs me the most.
    3. Definitey a casino heist.
    4. Santa Monica – Everclear
    5. I decline to answer on the grounds that it would reveal just how much of a perv I really am, lol. (Really, NO one else thinks Victoria’s Secret dressing room?)


  13. By Awlbiste on Aug 14, 2008

    1. Can it be a really small tennis ball? Actually that’s sort of a hard question. Can I use my riches to get it surgically removed?
    2. My friend Eric. He’s the only person I’ve never wanted to yell at or maim in some way for doing stupid things.
    3. Obviously somehow steal a bunch of money. Sadly this one is kind of generic but hey, money!
    4. I couldn’t only listen to one song for the rest of my life. Not possible. Sorry!
    5. Run around and get into a bunch of trouble. Figure out how to steal all that money.


  14. By Reese on Aug 14, 2008

    1. Um, no.
    2. I have to say my wife, but possibly my dad.
    3. Something altruistic and ultimately beneficial like getting art back from the private collection or stealing money for charity, yeah I know…. but then I could sell the movie rights…
    4. Geez, depends on when you ask me… I mean… does all of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon count as one song? I mean, it flows into one another….
    5. Blackmail, definately find good things for blackmail. *follow TJ.*

    Well as the “boss” or what is it she calls me? Head something in charge. No clue, here are my answers:

    5 Questions from Lucas
    14 Aug life, video 14 comments



  16. By Saresa on Aug 15, 2008

    I actually posted a video reply! … but someone beat me to it *sigh*, damn having to go to work and stuff.


  17. By Lucas on Aug 15, 2008

    @ Jordan – Your art is amazing!

    @Saresa – Sorry! I found a little extra free time yesterday to make the vid :(

    1: No, I have dignity. Money pays bills, but can’t buy happiness. If you’re bills are causing you that much distress, you need to cut your spending. Family and Friends make one much more happy than money ever will. Yes, with money you’ll have family and friends come out of every place known to man, but I’ve seen what kind of F&F they are.
    2: My wife of course. I’m not much of a talker in the first place, so I wouldn’t have much of a problem on this front. However, not being able to talk to my wife would drive me insane. She gets me and my sometimes twisted views.
    3: Lots of thieves out there. I’m going to bar my windows now. I like some say they would steal for other people. I think that funny. I agree with Anjin “Cool is better than money.” Not exactly sure what I would do. I would blow something up! Of course make sure nobody was in or around whatever I was going to blow up because I don’t roll like that. (Well, maybe if some terrorist were in there, I might make an exception :) )
    4: No clue. I think insanity would set in if I could only choose one song. Music is important for it changes moods, feelings, and all that junk. So by limiting yourself to one song, you miss out on so much. That and you have to find another method to cheer yourself up, or put you into the mood to do something that the music normally would have done. If though, I had to choose one, I would choose something classical. Nothing mellows me out like classical music. I can work, sleep, meditate, and focus to it. Not sure which piece, but it would have to be a long decision process to pick one.
    5: Not sure exactly, but one thing I know I would do for sure is to mess with a sporting event. Watching all the people’s faces get freaked out when a floating football, basketball, baseball is moving all around. Classic!

    1.) I thought at first I would but I can’t even go an hour or so without playing with or taking off a hat when I wear it so, no. Dignity… eh, who needs dignity, I just couldn’t take the annoyance. Plus I like hats.
    2.) Why, you of course TJ. Cuz you are the Deputy of Awesome. Well… or I could choose my wife because she’d shoot me if I didn’t…
    3.) Kill George Lucas before he makes another sad and disappointing fuckarow of a Star Wars movie. Or go all Ocean’s Eleven and pull a casino heist. But the latter is kind of a generic answer so number 1.
    4.) Meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow… (meow mix song) It’s always in my head anyways so…
    5.) I plead the 5th amendment and refuse to admit to any desire to steal, eavesdrop, or sneak into any locker rooms. Thank you very much.
