One of the more interesting people that I follow on Twitter is a man named Tyler (The Ghost) Casper. (@tyler_casper) Check him out and give the man some love and a follow. Now, what was I saying? Oh yeah, he asks a lot of questions. And the regular readers of this site know how I am about questions, right? So I went down his Twitter feed and copied several of the most recently asked questions. And now, for your reading pleasure, it’s time to provide a few answers. So are you ready? Let’s do this…

Do you believe in second chances?

I don’t mind giving a second chance, usually to the wrong person, if I think there’s a reason to do so. People are stupid and make mistakes, but are capable of change. Well, some of them are anyways. You won’t know until you try.

Do you have a favorite cookbook?

I used to have an International cookbook that had ideas and recipes from over thirty nations. It was really cool and I would sometimes just flip it open and whatever was on that page, it was time for some shopping and then dinner. I haven’t seen that cookbook in a long time, but I discovered some good food because of it.

Do you thank God for the trials he puts you through?

I pray every day for what I have, what I’ve endured, and what comes next. So I guess that would be a yes.

How do you get rid of the hiccups?

I imagine life if I was married with children. The mere thought scares the crap out of me and it works. Hiccups are gone.

What is the longest amount of time you’ve ever worked without a day off?

Well, considering I work a full-time job, work a volunteer job at the Food Bank, and spend the rest of my time trying to keep my site updated, which is a job in itself, I would say it’s been at least four years since my last day with no responsibilities to occupy my time. I was in the hospital with high sugar and an abscess then.

What is the dumbest interview questions you’ve ever been asked?

I honestly don’t remember any really dumb ones. I’m sure that there were, but I can’t remember them at the moment.

What is your favorite burrito?

The beefy, five-layered burrito from Taco Bell. They discontinued the Taco Salads which were my favorite meal from that place, but so long as they keep this one on the menu, we’re good.

Do you have a compost pile?

We do out on the edge of the back yard. My Mom is all about all that save the world garbage.

Have you ever forgotten to set your alarm for work?

I have a few times, but I’m naturally an early riser anyway and don’t need an alarm. I set it out of habit, but am usually awake long before it starts to go off.

Have you ever been late to a meeting because you had to stop at the restroom first?

No. If I have an appointment or meeting, I always make sure to give myself plenty of time for anything unexpected that might happen. I don’t do “late”.

Can you ever have too many guns?

For the whiney-ass Snowflakes, one is too many. But for me personally, the more, the merrier.

Would you say you’re a humble person?

For the most part, yes.

When was the moment you decided to just drive the speed limit?

I think it was during the time period that I had no driver’s license but had to drive anyways to continue holding a job and being a responsible adult. I knew I was taking a risk so I did everything I could to not attract any extra attention to myself and that included driving the speed limit.

If there are white lies, are there black ones as well?

I’m sure that there are, but if I say so, I’ll probably be deemed racist. Lies are lies are lies. ‘Nuff said!

What is the difference between a white lie and a regular one?

A white lie is one told with good intentions behind it, to avoid hurting feelings or make someone feel better. A regular lie is one told just for the sake of lying or to save one’s own ass and damn the consequences of the lie.

And there you go. I think I’m through here for now. My thanks for reading and for Casper for the always-so-awesome questions. Keep them coming, my friend. Any comments, thoughts, or questions that you’d like to ask, about anything, drop me a line here at the site, at my e-mail of, or on Twitter at @Doug28352. Follow me. I follow back.

And with that, I’m out of here. Stay safe in this crazy world of ours, watch out for the loonies and nuts, and take care of yourself. I’ll catch you later on the flip side. Be cool!
