Questions By Casper #48
October 8, 2020
Over in the world of Twitter, I found a man that likes to ask questions. And I do mean a lot of them. His name is Tyler “The Ghost” Casper and he’s at @tyler_casper. A good guy that you should go check out. Now, as I was saying, he likes to ask questions. I like to answer them and it provides content for the site. So here we are. Every few days, I go down his feed and copy the inquiries he’s asked. And then it’s here for the answers. It’s insightful, thought-provoking, and hopefully entertaining for you, the reader, as well. So let’s can the chit chat and let’s do this. Are you ready? And away we go…
Where is your favorite place to unwind?
In my bed, at my computer, or sitting out in the back yard on the porch watching the moon and sky late at night.
What is your favorite classic car?
A 1972 Volkswagen Bug. I’ve had two in my life and would love to have another at some point.
What is something that would make you swear off bacon forever?
I’m not really a big bacon lover. Yeah, crazy I know, but I prefer sausage. Big thick pieces of sausage make my mouth water.
What was your first cellphone?
I think it was a little ten-dollar Tracfone from the Dollar General. I had a pager up until 2002 and that was fine with me. I didn’t want to have a cell phone. I still sometimes wish I didn’t have one. I hate a damn phone.
What is the weirdest place you’ve ever fallen asleep?
Standing up, in the shower. I was tired.
What do you do when people jump in your bandwagon, only to try and take it over?
I don’t care if people want to climb aboard because I’m pretty damn awesome. But there is only room for one person in the decision-making process and that’s me. I’m anti-social and kind of an asshole at times anyway, so they don’t stay long if they can’t accept that at the start. Do I even have a bandwagon?
Do you consume energy drinks?
I only drink water, Diet Mt. Dew and Kool-Aid. I leave the energy drink consumption to my infamous bro-son. Did you know he used to drink 3582 Red Bulls a day? He did. True story.
Do you use Pinterest?
No, I do not.
Why is unprocessed food more expensive?
Because it’s probably considered to be healthier and things that are allegedly good for you costs more money. Health nuts have extra money to spare. Us poor fat folks are scraping by and we go for the more standard pickings.
Do you think God is male or female? (Remember, the Bible was written by men, true, God spoke through them, but they were men…)
God is neither man nor woman. We may use the “he” pronoun in reference, but he is beyond such simple labels as male or female. the only two real genders by the way. God is God, nothing more and nothing less.
Have you cut refined foods from your diet?
I eat what I like when I like unless I have coupons. Then I go for the deals to get a quick meal.
What is the longest you’ve ever gone without a drink?
If you’re referring to alcohol, I often go months or even years without drinking with my longest stretch being nine years. Nowadays, I average maybe four weeks or so between drinking binges.
What is the longest you’ve ever gone without food?
Maybe three days. I was temporarily homeless and had other things to worry about besides food at the time.
What is the longest amount of time you’ve ever been awake?
That I can recall, maybe three days. It happens sometimes.
Have you ever had to employ a locksmith?
There have been a few times, yes.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever drank?
Is this a sex-related question? Ask your boyfriend. He knows. But aside from that, I’ll go with either pickle juice (yuck) or hot sauce.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever eaten?
A dog biscuit. Myself and the bro-son were sitting around one day and talking and began to wonder so…
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever seen?
A drunk guy fighting with a gas pump… and losing. I really need to tell that story someday. Remind me.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever heard?
I hear crazy shit about myself and my friends all the time. Rumors and lies are always fascinating to hear.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever read?
I read fan-fiction stories all the time (and write them as well. Go to FanFiction.net and look up the writer name TSFiction19. That’s me). Probably some homo-erotic fan fiction involving Wolverine and Captain America. That shit had even me shaking my head and going, “What the… ?”. Yeah, it was that bad.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions you’d like to ask, feel free to give me a shout. I’ll talk at you again very soon. Have a great one, be safe, and watch out for the crazies. See you later.
