Default Member Spotlight #22: Ask Ryushikaze anything

In this forum tradition we give a specific member a thread for a week in which they can share whatever information they want about themselves, then answer whatever questions the public asks them. It's sort of an expansion on the "Let's get to know each other" thread by, well, giving one member the spotlight. More information on the concept can be found here.

This week's participant is Ryushikaze, who has elected to share the following information:
Hi all, the name's Tim. I'm 30, currently employed as a technical writer for Red Cross, and looking to move on and find a new SO after about a year single.

I play a lot of games. A LOT of games, and I'm big into video, tabletop, and card game design theory.

I can't think of much interesting to tell you about myself, but if you ask me something, I'll do my best to give an honest AND entertaining answer.
Feel free to ask whatever you'd like. This thread will be up for approximately a week before we move onto our next participant.

“When I was twelve, I milked my eel into a pot of turtle stew.
I flogged the one-eyed snake, I skinned my sausage, I made
the bald man cry into the turtle stew, which I do believe my
sister ate. At least, I hope she did.” -Tyrion Lannister
“The management is very bad. In fact, let’s not mince words: The management is terrible!
We’ve had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars, and lunatics making a string of catastrophic
decisions. This is a plain fact. But who elected them? It was you! You who appointed these
people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V
“If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.” -Thomas Pynchon
“All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.” -Adam Smith
“Why throw money at problems? That's what money is for. Should the nation's wealth be redistributed? It has been and continues to be redistributed to a few people in a manner strikingly unhelpful.” -Kurt Vonnegut
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” -John Steinbeck
“If you took the most ardent revolutionary, vested him in absolute power, within a year he would be worse than the Tsar himself.” -Mikhail Bakunin
“In all history, there is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare.” -Sun Tzu
“...pero Capitán, obedecer por obedecer, así, sin pensarlo... sólo lo hacen gentes como usted, Capitán.” -Dr Ferreiro, Pan’s Labyrinth
“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.” -William Blake
“Yeah, you really got my act down good, guys. That'll be great. ‘You know, when I’m done ranting about elite power that rules the planet under a totalitarian government that uses the media in order to keep people stupid, my throat gets parched! That’s why I drink Orange Drink.’” -Bill Hicks

I am always here. I try to go there, but wherever I go, I wind up here, and there is still far away.

I've never been there, so I can't really say.

What's a technical writer at the Red Cross do?
At the moment, wait on word on what I need to actually document since the customer facing aspect, which was my first documentation task, has changed what will and won't face customers.

Flintlock wrote: What would it take for you to thank a post on TLS?
Money would be a good start.

Groot wrote: How's it going?
Not too bad. I got bills, but I am getting paid, so I am feeling good.

How would you respond to me if I fired a hadouken?
Tatsu past it using the fireball immunity, if I connect, turtle in anticipation of a wakeup Shoryu, counter Shoryu, then attempt to link into a Donkey kick on the fall down.
Assuming SF4.

Morrigan wrote: I remember you once used a cookie monster smilie, what will it take for that to happen again?
Again, Money. Or sex. Or better yet, both.

The Twilight Mexican wrote: Is Santa Claus real?
Not since he got trapped in the land of fiction.

Celes Chere wrote: what's your favorite candy bar
Reese's cups.

Cabaret wrote: Do you get the feeling that people aren't taking this seriously?
A bit, but did they really ever?

Favourite non-FF game?

Favourite non-FF world to live in?

Early to bed, or late sleeper?

You're convicted of a crime you didn't commit and sentenced to death, what are your last words, last person you ask to see, and last meal?
