Hero -


Never really had a childhood hero to be honest. But my adulthood (I'm a manchild so it still counts) hero would have to be my wife. A few years ago the company I worked for was closing down some of the locations, and I was offered either redundancy or to move to a location that would have taken about an hour longer to get to that where I was already (which already took over an hour). My wife suggested that I should take the opportunity to do what I've always wanted to do, so for the last couple of years, while I've been trying to set up my business she has been working like a trooper to make it work. Hopefully this pays out so I can return the favour.


Act of kindness -


The girl of my dreams agreed to go on a date with me.


Thing that made me laugh -


When I was a child, myself and my older brothers were always messing each other about, playing pranks, fighting and whatnot. One of the days my older brother had knocked his tooth loose, we suggested the old "tie a piece of string around a the door handle and slam it shut" trick. He did it, a short piece of string tied to the door handle, and the other end tied to his tooth. He slammed the door as hard as he could, the tooth didn't pull out, instead the door recoiled and smashed him on the face. I laughed so hard, and then got my arse kicked for it.

It's really difficult to say who exactly would have been my childhood hero. I was a young boy with a very active imagination and was always fascinated by super heroes and crime fighters. I was the biggest fan of Batman growing up, whether it was Adam West, Michael Keaton, or a cartoon personification of him. (I don't really count Val Kilmer, and I'm going to say that George Clooney was beyond laughable in his attempt)


But now that I'm older and able to look back, I'd definitely say that my father and my older brother are two men that I've always looked up to. That is not to take away from any of the gratitude or respect that I have for my mother. I owe both of my parents more than I could ever repay. But to stay on track, my father has played such a big roll in my life. In me maturing and turning into the man I am now.


I always felt safe around him, and felt as if he was strong enough to take on the world if need be. He was always there for my family, and never failed to provide for us or protect us from harm. Now that I am older, even when there are times that he and I might disagree, as a son, I cannot help but respect and admire his strong will. It makes me strive harder to be a better man myself, in hopes that one day I will be the same in the eyes of my own children.


And I know this is kinda long, but I also have to mention my brother. For everyone who knows him on here, he goes by the username DesperateMeasurez.


And whether he likes it or not, I have always looked up to him. As the little brother, I have practically followed in his footsteps my whole life. He is a self-taught musician, and that in turn inspired me to get into music. I even owe my being on this site to him. He's been here for a few years, and while we've had RPG Maker since we found it as boys on the Playstation 1, I would have never have known this site existed had it not been for him. I'm very grateful for that. Just don't go telling him I wrote this. If he sees this, he'll beat me up haha. Or he'll try to at least ;)


The kindest thing anyone has ever done for me? I'm not really sure if I can pick one thing, since I've had a lot of really swell people help me out and do kind things for me. I'd have to say that I think it was pretty kind of my parents to put up with me for all these years (they should have sold me to the nearest pet store). I know I probably drove them insane, but I couldn't help it! It's what I do.


And I'm a goof, so I pretty much laugh a million times a day. I could name a million Monty Python things, but I'll go with something whacky that happened to me years ago:


One day after work, I had called my mother up on the phone, however, I must have hit a wrong digit, because a different woman, who actually really sounded like my mother picked up, so I started calling her mom and talking to her. After a moment, she responded, "I don't know who this is, but I'm not your mother." I naturally started laughing because I figured my mother was just messing with me, as I always did to her. So I started openly ragging her on the phone. Again the woman on the end of the phone told me that she was not my mother. At this point, I stopped laughing and started to suspect that something was not quite right. After a moment, I asked her who she was, and having found out that she was not indeed my ma, I apologized and let her know I had the wrong number.


The best part of the story is, I was sitting in a work truck, in between my father and brother. They had been listening to me talking, and when I hung up after apologizing for having the wrong number, they looked rather confused. I told them that I had been talking to someone else by mistake, and I never quite heard the end of it. Especially when I called my real mother a moment later and explained to her what had happened.


It does make me wonder what became of my mystery mother though... I only know one thing, she sounded a little ticked off on the phone. O_O

Well, I laugh regularly at work - I work with funny people and particularly one punny person.


However, one of my more recent memorable moments was paying for something at the local farmers' market and seeing some cadets collecting donations for new uniforms. There were three of them together, so I asked "Which one of you humans gets my change?" Amid some giggling on their part, I shared some with all three. However, as I was leaving, I suspected they were all related, as they were asking the oldest one if he's really human.

The kindest thing someone has ever done for me?  There's a good amount of things people have done for me that are exceedingly kind.  I can't even remember an exact one.Although, I can remember one thing.  Last year when both my hard drives crashed and I had lost so much information, over 15 years worth of work and memories, when I was looking into getting them fixed, I saw that they were way out of my current price range.  Despite the fact that I never did take them up on their offer, a friend of mine offered to pay for the procedure to get them both fixed in full without asking for anything in return.  It was one of the single most selfless acts of kindness I'd ever experienced.  They were willing to spend a lot of money to help me in my time of need, but I just couldn't do it.  When they read this, they know who they are and I still thank them from the bottom of my heart.  Thank you, my wonderful friend.


As for the last question, lots of things make me laugh and many of made me laugh so close to making me wet my pants, but I'd have to say that most of my best laughs have been this year when I met my current, and hopefully last, girlfriend.  I met her when we were playing an online game of Cards Against Humanity that a mutual ex-friend brought us and a couple others together to play.  Hearing her laughing, snickering and giggling was amazing and her laughter was so infectious.  One night, though, we made a joke about the Queen of England that is not appropriate to be repeated here on these forums, despite how funny it was at the time, and she was just dying of laughter and in turn, it made me die of laughter as well.  I couldn't breath I was laughing so hard and just about every day since, my days have been filled with so much laughter.  That night was one of the funniest nights I'd had in a very long time and I was so happy it all fell into place.


Anyway, good luck to everyone and stay cool!

My parents are my heroes, they always did everything to give me the best, even if it does not had been financial conditions.


I admire both because already passed by several trouble (we almost starving) and always endeavored to stay united with the ideal that family prevails above all.


That video makes laugh every time:

Something that made me laugh? there's lots of stuff, but one of the most memorable was this one time when I was still in high school, me and my brother and our friends went to go skate in a town over from us, and when we were heading back home my brother barked at someone walking on the side walk(he did a perfect Chihuahua impression xD), and right when he barked at them the light in front of us turned red. so they started walking towards our car and yelling at us. Everyone in the car was freaking out, they kept telling me to run the red light but I couldn't stop laughing and didn't wanna get a ticket(the light turned green shortly after anyways). xDD the look on everyones face was priceless though, haha it was the last time my brother barked at anyone. ._. I have a weird sense of humor xD

Okay, "Something that made me laugh".


My parents had gone away for a week so I had my best friend Jay staying over at my house and doing all that typical guy stuff; staying up late, watching movies, playing games, and just generally doing whatever we wanted. Well this one particular night we were watching "House of 1000 Corpses" in the dark. I should mention that horror/slasher films hadn't bothered or scared either of us for a long time (I honestly can't remember ever being scared by them) and that Jay had brought his favourite snack at the time, these cheap small bags of flavoured peanuts.


To continue: we had watched about 20 minutes or so of the film and there had been one or two of those typical "jump out and scare you moments", when another friend of ours, Greg, stopped by. He hadn't seen the movie yet either and we decided to rewind the film and start over. So there we were sitting in a row in our chairs: Me, Greg, Jay. I had no idea this was going to happen but Jay remembered where one of those "jumping" moments was coming up and as it did, he let out this high pitched squeal/scream and tossed some peanuts from his bag at Greg. Greg screamed and jumped about 3 feet out of his chair! I of course exploded and fell out of my seat laughing. Oh my god, it make me chuckle every time I think about it.

Who was your childhood hero and why did you admire them?
Goku because of Kamehameha?

What is the kindest thing someone else did for you?
When I was a kid, my cousin (way older than me) watched out for me while I had a fever. A few years later, she had a traffic accident and died :(

Well, recently the thing that made me laugh a lot was a boycott to a channel in my country (telefe) because they stopped having simpsons marathons on sundays. In each and every one of the posts of their official facebook there are hundreds of memetic classic simpson scenes, with some kind of funny version of bring back the simpsons.


Also anothe meme, this one called luna de pluton, where an advertisement for a book called exactly that (moon of pluto) is used in place of dialogues of different cartoons.


Yeah, I'm a very simple man when it comes to humor.

This one is hard, as there are many things, and many are tied for that spot. Well, here's one, I choose to share it because it features an animal rather than a person, which wasn't that common for me: I was walking through some woods during a hike when I was a teenager, we had been sent by our teachers to go our separate ways to meditate in solitude, when I bumped into two huge dogs, one was golden and the other one was black. It seems they were sticking together to survive. Well, the golden dog started looking at me quite viciously, and suddenly started attacking me.


After fending him off as best as I could, I started to run, but the animal was obviously going to catch up to me, but the other dog, the black one, attacked him, protecting me; he kept standing next to me while growling, and when the vicious golden dog approached us once more the black dog attacked him until the golden dog quit his assault. While I made my way back to camp, the black dog escorted me all the way, and when he saw I was safe, he left. Later on, I found out those dogs were looked after by ranchers and people living around the area, but were mostly wild dogs. I'm really grateful for that encounter, despite the danger, it felt somewhat magical.

Well, I was just remembering this one time in college, one of my classmates, who had a reputation for "smoking", had to give a presentation about Kelts and Vikings, but he had the bright idea of "smoking" before the presentation, so under the influence, he grabbed the wrong files, his Warhammer Fantasy files instead of the historical documents, and began his talk.


We all watched in disbelief as he started talking about how the valiant elves fought against the forces of chaos to defend their mystical city. I couldn't belive he talked about that for about 2 minutes before realizing his mistake. The blunder was so terrible, that the professor even tried to cover for him saying "ah, yes, a decent analogy, the elves are probably a metaphor for the keltic tribes and the chaos champions represent the barbarians of the north, correct?" :-D

What is some of your favorite food?


Only one? Does "pasta" count as an answer?:p


If I had to pick one, it would be ravioli.


My grandma used to make the best ones, she had cva a few years ago and now she almost never kneads (amongst other things she no longer does). I've been bugging her to make ravioli together, but it's been hard. (I think she might not remember how to make them).


That got kinda sad fast, so, to leave in a happy note, here is a kawaii ravioli for you:

I love Middle Eastern food. Am absolutely obsessed with it. Shawarma is always a huge hit with me. As amazing as the meat is I think what makes it so incredible to me are all the fillings and toppings. The garlic sauces, hummus, tabbouleh, tahini. Also have to give a shout out to dark chocolate for my favorite sweet treat, though.
