Hurrah, it's @bparker!

All right. It almost goes without saying that bparker is completely adorable. I mean, look at those ears, those sparkling eyes, those rosy cheeks. But seriously, is there anything more adorable than a FEDORA?

And I have more questions, too!

What's your favorite joke?
What's your real first name if you feel okay sharing it?
What part of the world are you in?
What's the story behind your username?
What was the first thing you created in the game that you felt was important enough to put a protector on? Does it still exist? If so, where? If not, why not?
What's your most distinguishing feature?
What's something you like about yourself?
What's your weirdest or most annoying habit?
What's the creepiest interaction you've ever had with an insect?
What's the most exotic animal you've ever touched?
Why are cats so much better than dogs?
Do you have any interesting stories about scars or injuries? Hospitalizations? How about surgeries? Gory infections? Teeth?
Have you ever broken a bone? Ever had stitches?
What's something about your upbringing that's unique, and how has it affected your view of the world?
If your life were a book, what would be the chapter headings?
In one sentence, what's your philosophy of life?

    What's your favorite joke?
    Well I can't think of a specific joke because there is one genre of jokes that I find hilarious and those are anti-jokes here's and example. Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side XD I don't know why I find them so funny though.

    What's your real first name if you feel okay sharing it?
    My real first name is Ben

    What part of the world are you in?
    I am almost exactly in the middle of the midwest of the U.S.A

    What's the story behind your username?
    It is the username that I use for everything. I was thinking of coming up with something simple for the Touch Arcade Forums and this came to mind. I t has stuck since then for all forums/game.

    What was the first thing you created in the game that you felt was important
    enough to put a protector on? Does it still exist? If so, where? If not, why not?
    This first thing I created with a protector was the Betatown Hotel. Unfortunately it does not exist anymore because I needed the protector elsewhere and also it had gotten griefed by someone I was following.

    What's your most distinguishing feature?
    I think that my most distinguishing feature is my height. Currently I am 6 feet and 3 inches tall and I may be able to grow more in the next few years.

    What's something you like about yourself?
    I like my musical abilities and I like how I am able to make friends easily.

    What's your weirdest or most annoying habit?
    My weirdest habit is the fact that I enjoy giving hugs which is fine until someone wants one 24/7. Apparently I give good hugs :P

    What's the creepiest interaction you've ever had with an insect?
    I once owned a 7 inch Madagascar hissing Cockroach

    What's the most exotic animal you've ever touched?
    I think the most exotic I have touched was the lizard I tried to almost catch but was left grasping its tail which it had detached.

    Why are cats so much better than dogs?
    Well actually I feel both have their ups and downs. Dogs are there for you and are willing to play with you all the time which is great, but cats only seem to want to be pet every so often which makes it feel awesome when one of those moments happen;.

    Do you have any interesting stories about scars or injuries? Hospitalizations? How about surgeries? Gory infections? Teeth?
    Have you ever broken a bone? Ever had stitches?
    I have a very interesting story about one particular scar on the top of my head which was cause by hitting a metal bar while swinging on a tire swing. It was in fourth grade and was very traumatic at the time considering blood was pouring down my arm and my hand was bright red when I looked at it. I had to have stitches for that experience. For broken bones I have only had one which was my arm during a football practice in eighth grade. And for my teeth I have had lots of surgeries but the weirdest was the removal of my extra adult tooth which I still own.

    What's something about your upbringing that's unique, and how has it affected your view of the world?
    I have been raised my life by two sets of parents because my mom and dad broke up when I was two. This has allowed me to gain more understanding of life because I am getting life lessons from both parents and both step-parents

    If your life were a book, what would be the chapter headings?
    Chapter 1: Small town lives
    Chapter 2: Two homes
    Chapter 3: To the land of the Jayhawks
    Chapter 4: New parents
    Chapter 5: An 11 year difference
    Chapter 6: On the way to Spencer
    Chapter 7: Back where we started
    Chapter 8: High schol Drama

    In one sentence, what's your philosophy of life
    Carpe diem.

  • bparkerbparker Member Posts: 396



    What nationality are you?
    I am German, Irish, Czech, and a tiny, tiny bit Native American

    Can you program?
    No but I would like to in the future

    Can you speak a foreign language?
    Yes

    If so what, and how well?
    It is spanish and only as well as I have been taught in two years so not well at all :P

    What is the longest word word you know?Must be an actual word that you know the meaning ofserendipitous I think I just love how that word sounds


    How did you discover Deepworld and what was it that interested you?
    I saw it on Touch Arcade a long time ago then followed it from the old forums and Alpha to Mac Beta to the New forums to Mac release to Ipad beta to Ipad release to Ipod beta to Ipod release. Basically I've been here a while.

    Have you played Pokemon?
    Yes and I loved it but I don't like the newer Black and White of X and Y games it just seems like the designers are reaching for any pokemon they can think of.

    Are you allergic to anything?
    Yes

    If so what and how badly?
    Penicillin and only bad enough that I get some hives.

    What is the worst thing you have ever lost?
    My Ipod touch on three different occasion.

    What is the worst injury you have ever had/have?
    My arm getting broken as it impaired my clarinet playing for three months or so.

    Do you like Jaffa Cakes?
    Not sure what those are :P

    Do you serve Diablo?Not trying to start a war just want too know
    No I do not.

    Do you like bunny?
    Yes because he's so adorable!

    Do you prefer night or day?
    I prefer the day because its bright and sunny.

    Do you prefer the shadows or the night?
    This is harder but I have to go with the night.

    Harmony or Discord?
    Harmony

    Do you believe the world exists in equilibrium?
    I partially believe it does but at the same time I don't its a bit confusing :P


    Do you realise that you look like an old time chicago gangster?
    That was the point. My school was doing a the Musical Guys and Dolls and I was Nicely Nicely Johnson (who was a bit of a gangster) That was mostly why I was wearing a fedora and why my cheeks were rosy. If you look closly to the left of my face you can see the mic that I have.

    The best concert I have been to was Coldplay when they were in Des Moines.

    Not sure what you mean by with darkness but here is a poem.
    If you are a dreamer, come in.
    If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
    A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
    If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
    For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
    Come in!

    technically it would be "it" "the" "a" "an" or other connectors lol.
    (whoop whoop not my interview but just pointing it out)

    If you could run away from home, and your family will be guaranteed safety,
    and you would be granted an infinite source of money, only that you never see them again, would you?

    Your mom and dad are flailing in the water, and a shark approaches. They both cannot swim, and you have time to only save one, what do you do?

    You are paid money to kill one man to save an entire country, only that you find out that man was your best buddy/ your father/ your brother/ tony stark. Would you do it ?

    I'm not going to answer this one.
