Questions By Casper VIII
Geeks, Nerds, Power Tools & More
August 24, 2021
In the land of Twitter, there is a man who shares his name with a friendly ghost. He likes to ask questions. And me? I like to answer them. And that brings us to where we are now. It’s #8 of Questions By Casper. Let’s do this.
Do you know the difference between a nerd and a geek?
Nerds made those great movies in the ’80s and ended up in control of the Greek Council. Geeks are what bald-headed people are called by pro wrestling fans (see Jones, Paul or Von Raschke, Baron).
Were you considered a geek growing up?
Nah, I was just me, that strange, but still oddly cool kid who liked wrestling, comics, and Alice Cooper.
Were you considered a nerd growing up?
See my previous answer. It applies here as well. These are nerds.
Who was your childhood hero?
My childhood hero was John Cena. No, that was R-Truth’s childhood hero. My bad. I liked Blackjack Mulligan, Bob DeBardelaben, and Mark Hudson. Mulligan was a wrestling legend, DeBardelaben was the weatherman for WRAL, Channel 5, and Mark Hudson was one of the Hudson Brothers, a musical trio that was big in the late ’70s. Mark was the one with the mustache.
Have you ever fallen out of a boat?
Not that I can recall, but I’m sure that it’s happened at some point in my life. I used to do things like that just for the sake of doing things like that.
Have you ever gone on a cruise ship?
No,but I used to watch the Love Boat every week. Charo was so cool. Same difference.
Have you ever been caught gawking at someone?
It’s not my fault. They were just either amazingly sexy or amazingly stupid looking and I couldn’t turn away. My bad!
Have you ever over-shared?
Every single time I sit down in front of my computer and do something for the site, this happens. It’s not my fault though. I have no secrets and my life is an open book for all to read. Well, except for that time with your boyfriend in the men’s room at Wal-Mart. That’s still a secret so don’t tell anyone, ok?
Did y’all have a lot of homework when you were in school?
Thinking back, it seems like we had a lot, but it didn’t seem so bad at the time. Schoolwork was generally easy for me.
Have you ever peed blood?
Not that I can remember, but if I did, I’d go see a doctor pretty fast. It’s probably COVID.
If you could body swap with anyone, who would it be?
Maybe a hot supermodel for a day or so so that I’d know how it feels to be a female and to take advantage of the whore possibilities, but in all seriousness, why would I give up my sexy self for anyone else. Yes, I’m fat and falling apart, but damn it all, I’m a sexy beast and I know it.
Does anyone still believe 81 million people voted for this Trainwreck (Biden)?
No one with any common sense would believe it because it didn’t happen. Why was counting votes in several swing states stopped and everyone sent home, all states where Trump was leading, and then when counting resumed, away from observers and in the wee hours of the morning, Joe was suddenly ahead. Why don’t Democrats want a full audit of the election and every vote? Because the election was stolen, the votes don’t add up, and Biden didn’t get that many votes. He’s an illegitimate president, period.
What is the best fashion trend you’ve ever followed?
I don’t do trends. My bad taste is all my own and always has been.
If you could travel through time, when would you go?
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way, I’d go back to 2014 and you’d stay. And then I’d go back to the summer of 1995, just before an ill-fated trip to Southern Pines, and bust myself in the mouth. Don’t do dat!
How many power tools are too many?
I have a saw I don’t use, some drills I don’t use, and I’m sure there are others. I don’t care about Power Tools except for maybe the movie by Jeff Stryker (look him up). Give me a hammer, two screwdrivers, a saw, and a couple of adjustable wrenches and I’m good.
Liberals want you to mask up, shut up and comply. Will you?
I wear a mask because it’s required at my job, but to be honest, I could care less one way or the other. I will wear the mask if asked because I’m a respectful sort and understand that if I’m at a business and want to partake in their services, I follow their rules while I’m there and if that means a mask, so be it. Otherwise, I’ll do without and just go home where no mask is required unless you’re ugly or we’re playing dress-up and make-believe.
How many power tools do you own?
I have a few that I never use. I prefer simple ways of life and doing things. Just give me a hammer and I’ll make it work.
What is a fashion trend that should never come back?
I don’t know if it’s a trend or not, but people over a certain weight limit wearing stretchy pants that are way too small, it’s not a pretty sight and should never happen… ever.
