Favourite Overlord? I assume not counting the OC I named myself after ;P

Hmm, there is a Newgrounds series with a character named the Overlord, the series is pretty short an called Larry, but I thought the Overlord was pretty funny. If I can think of a better example, I'll let you know.

My hair is so long, I can tickle my ass by looking up. My hair is magnificent. I enter a room, shake my long flowing blond hair and the song "Hair" from the musical "Hair" begins to play. My hair is the part of my body I like the most.

I had a dream last night that I popped the queue. Unfortunately, it was only a dream. So, uhhh, let's retroactively-having-done-popped-queue-hours-from-earlier-now? Xaber, you're up!

I apologise but I hardly ever get a chance to use upsidedown text

So how's Turnbull working out for you? Does it ever get confusing that the "Liberal" party is conservative? What's that like? Also how often do you guys wear sunscreen because holy fuck the rate of skin cancer in Australia is seriously terrifying.

Wow we're doing really well on the "lame Australian stereotypes" front. Only three posts in and we've already got upside-down gags, boomerangs, and kangaroos. Well done us!

well, to be totally honest, i don't know a whole lot about xaber! i know he lives in australia and is out of school, so i'm just kinda waiting for him to fill out the generic questions. no harm meant, xaber.

for that matter, how does the australian education system work? how much time do you have between high school/secondary school/whatever and college/university/whatever? and what do you plan to study at the latter whatever?

Post by Xaber on Sun Apr 10, 2016 11:26 pm

generic questions:

Generic question 1: what does an average day in your life look like?

i've been at university for the past two months, so an average day there is basically:
- wake up at 8.30, make myself scrambled eggs for breakfast, make myself a falafel roll to have for lunch later, mess around on the computer for about half an hour
- go to lectures/labs/tutorials for the day, usually finishing sometime around 4 (lots of gaps in between though)
- rewrite my lecture notes and work on any assignments i have
- either make myself dinner or defrost something i made earlier in the week
- often in the evening i'll go for a walk with a small group of friends just to destress and stop thinking about study
- mess around on the computer for a few hours, have a shower, go to sleep (usually between 11 and midnight)

Generic question 1+1: describe one of your friends, or your social group!

guy called Atul, who I went to high school with and is now at the same university as me doing basically the same course. he's really short and his facial hair grows at an incredible rate. he jokes a lot and doesn't mind it when i make fun of him which means our conversations are constantly teetering on the edge of gay chicken. his Facebook presence is awful because all he does is like "gaming memes" pages.

generic question 3: Explain how you got your username!

...
when i was ten i thought it would be really cool to name all my pokemon after misspelled weapons. xaber (sabre) was the only one that really stuck (i can remember that and 'aks') but i thought it was a cool enough name to use it as my online identity when i started signing up to forums. i've moved away rom it a bit - now if i'm asked to give a username i normally put sighcosahedron (tumblr url).

4. What are your top ten favourite Pokémon? There does not need to be an order.

Braixen, Venusaur, Golbat, Breloom, Staravia, Vespiquen, Mamoswine, Jellicent, Druddigon, Bronzor

5. What is the meaning of life, in your opinion?

its origin
life is defined by how it came into being - how we think and live was dictated by the first iteration of chemical life. understanding that would let us properly understand ourselves
(this doesn't mean i'm actually pursuing this meaning)

6. What is is your favourite animal?

kangaroo

probably snakes or axolotls

7. You are stuck on a desert island with the person you despise the most in the world. You will absolutely never like them, there is zero chance that you ever will. Being around them makes you both miserable and filled with rage. There is no hope of ever being discovered and there is a 100% certainty that you will both be here for the rest of your lives. You are able to survive on this island just fine. You have been given a gun with a single bullet. The most hated person does not know about it, and you can somehow keep it a secret from them. Do you kill them, kill yourself, or live with this person? Follow up question: As soon as one of your is dead, the other gets to return to their life. Has your answer changed?

i would probably kill them. i'm not good at dealing with people like that and i'd almost certainly just give up at living with them about 4 hours in.
in the second case, though, i'd probably be less likely to kill them because i'd be afraid of some kind of setup - unless my knowledge of the deal came from a source i would consider absolutely trustworthy, i'd be worried that this was some kind of trick.

8. Do you live in an urban environment or a rural environment? Which would you rather live in?

urban, and urban. i'm afraid of trees.

9. Earth, Wind, Water or Fire? Combinations are not allowed, as are the answers "neither" or "all", or anything to that effect ;D

earth

10. What is your favourite word?

masterpiece

11. If you were to be given a Pokèmon type, what would it be? You can select a single type or a dual-type. This is not a "what's your favorite" question, but rather a "what represents you the best" question. Try to take your personality traits and interests into consideration!

dark/ghost
dark because i can be self-centred and focus on myself a lot
ghost because i lapse out of contact a lot

12. Out of all the currently unused type combinations, what are the Top Three that you most want to see on a gen 7 Pokèmon? Note: for the purposes of this question, you can choose to answer with NFE-exclusive types (like Bug/Water) or legendary-exclusive types (like pure Flying).

fire/water, fire/ice, fire/grass

13. You have the opportunity to briefly go back in time and talk to your past self from five years ago. You can choose any number of things to tell them, but you should probably try to avoid changing the future too severely. What will you tell your past self about?

i don't think i'd tell them anything? personal growth seems like it should be organic and telling myself to change something would either have no effect because i wouldn't listen or would probably mess myself up more than ordinary life has messed myself up

14. This is a pretty cliche one, but what would you do if you received three wishes from some sort of genie-like figure? Let's assume you can't wish for additional wishes and can't wish to become omniscient or omnipotent.

world peace, welfare state, energy revolution
next

15. If you could choose to permanently live in any fictional setting or world different from our own, where would you go? No matter where you choose to go, you remain an ordinary human, and all you can take with you is whatever you're wearing at the time, plus whatever items you're usually always carrying (phone? wallet?)

pokemon? that place seems pretty cool.

Questions 16,
At what point did you catch up with homestuck?


oh man i caught up exactly at the end of year 3. like, 13/4/12, beginning of act 6 act 3. the main thing i remember is that there was a ten day pause that i was reading during and hussie said in the news post "try not to go crazy in this break. i recommend distractions." look how far we've come now.

17:Is there anything you want to tell us about yourself that you've never really gone into or just haven't found the right opportunity to yet? Take your time on this one!

i might have mentioned this in the writing thread i made about a year ago but i would really like to be an author? i'm very bad at actually finishing anything (and starting things recently) and i don't think it would ever work as like a Main Career Path but i would like to try it.

18: why haven't u played pokemon TCG yet I mean c'mon it is a major part of the franchise u faker u

card games are bad

19. Which pokemon do you think is literally the worst one ever made?

chingling

non-generic questions:

d_what wrote:So how's Turnbull working out for you? Does it ever get confusing that the "Liberal" party is conservative? What's that like? Also how often do you guys wear sunscreen because holy fuck the rate of skin cancer in Australia is seriously terrifying.

turnbull sucks. he's just a smokescreen for conservative policies that he can't argue against because he's too scared of losing his position.

i'm not really that confused in Australia because nobody talks very much about liberals being left-wing thanks to the party. sometimes when i'm reading stuff on the internet it takes me a few seconds to make the connection though.

i wear sunscreen whenever i'm going to be outside for some time (e.g. going to the beach, going to university in summer) but probably not enough just normally to be honest. i wear jeans + jumpers basically whenever i can so heatstroke's more of a problem than sunburn for me..

invisibleTerrarium wrote:have you ever been personally victimized by a kangaroo [/racism]

what the hell does your avatar have to do with the name "xaber?" or your personality in general? have you ever driven a volkswagen golf gti???

australian pop music? y/n?

i have never been victimised by a kangaroo. i have seen them a few times but it's not a good idea to go very close to them.

my avatar is one of the default ones that the forum provides. there's several sections of stock images available, one of which is 'engines'. most of the pictures of cars are cool pictures of racing cars and then there's the 'volkswagon golf ti' which is entirely out of place. i don't even know what a golf gti is and i've certainly never driven one.

i have no opinion on australian pop music. i could not tell you the name of a single artist if you had a gun to my head.

Spark Eletran wrote:how do u feel about boomerangs. because they are awesome

boomerangs are pretty cool i guess? i feel very suspicious of the ones i've actually seen because they're usually just tacky shit for tourists.
boomerang facts:
- the returning boomerangs are actually different from  hunting boomerangs, which wouldn't come back but were heavy enough to actually injure large animals like emus and kangaroos
- boomerangs have been found lots of other places! they were used in europe and north america and (according to wikipedia) pharaoh tutankhamen was buried with boomerangs. so they're actually not uniquely australian.

invisibleTerrarium wrote:for that matter, how does the australian education system work? how much time do you have between high school/secondary school/whatever and college/university/whatever? and what do you plan to study at the latter whatever?

my final high school exams finished end of october last year. I started university at the beginning of february, so I had a bit more than three months of free time. If I'd wanted to I could have deferred my university offer and taken a year off to travel/work/whatever, but I didn't really have anything to do and my parents are paying for my accommodation for now so I don't need to worry about that.
right now i'm studying advanced science (which is science but with required honours) with the thought of maybe majoring in chemistry.
(also, in case i didn't say, i'm studying in a different city from where i normally live, so that's... something)

You're really good at it from what I've seen! I've heard that for most people it's a lot of work for little payoff but definitely keep it up as a side thing!

card games are bad
but Pokémon is good so Pokémon card games is at least a solid neutral

turnbull sucks.
goddamn. Just once I'd like someone to tell me their democracy is working. But nope, it's always pig diddler/trump-or-war-hawk/horrific corruption. Bleh.

you contributed a lot to the sburbmon thread back in the old days right??? it's been forever since then and i'm garbage at remembering "who said/did what" but i'm pretty sure you were around there a lot.

speaking of that, is it or is it not such bullshit that regular GT Nepeta has basically got no specialty or niche usage better than Davepeta^2!? literally everything normal Nep's got going for her, DP's got better. better speed, better offense, a secondary type, still has Scrappy. i know Davepeta's the harder-to-obtain one you've gotta work more for, but one member of a split evolution chain shouldn't 100% outclass the other. >:I

...that, uh, that kind of stopped being a question about halfway through. whoops? i... i get really passionate about fake pokémon stuff ok

Speaking of Sburbmon, if the forums are indeed gone forever, then we've kinda lost a few things. Most notably, the list of things that have been done, and I believe some of my more recent movesets as well. The BMC is still intact ofc, and we still have all the sprites, and I'm sure Twix has dev copies of whichever patch we're up to, but it's definitely annoying.

Xaber its shitty nicknames time r8 these in order of least to most shitty lesgo: Xabe Malik, Worhemr ov Sellywoo, bluhsintriangle, STREWTH MATE THAT SURE IS A GOOD SUWERD! and Zoober (Zoo Goober).

I mean okay it's kinda shitty ingame and especially competitively, but it LOOKS cool. Also it's really good in cards. http://i86.servimg.com/u/f86/18/54/62/14/img_2010.jpg

Do you have any scary stories to tell? How do you feel about wearing socks with sandals? Is Vegemite really as love/hate as people say? If you were us what question would you ask yourself?
