30 or so Questions Sat, 11 November 2006 01:20
Lets get to know each other better as a community of friends! Below are 30 or so questions. Please take some time and answer as many as you are willing to (all 30+ would be great but please try to answer at least 15 of your choice).

Copy and paste the questions into a new posting and then answer so everyone does not need to scoll up over and over to find out what "yes" on question 12 means for example.

Baron will answer most of the questions, if we get more than 20 people answering at least 15 truthfully then Baron will answer ALL of them truthfully.

Peter tried this once and only got ElSoy to respond as it was intended with others popping off. If you want to make fun of someone answers or their person feel free AS LONG AS YOU ANSWER AT LEAST 15 QUESTIONS YOURSELF. Here are the questions, Baron will answer in another post on this thread so these can be kept clean for copy and pasting.

31. Who taught you the game? (question added by bassie later in the thread)
I learned by playing, watching and gleaning info from the forum. Perhaps the biggest boost came when I read a thread by the top players talking about how long it had been since they scored >150 points in a game. Doesn't sound like much, but it made me rethink the entire game. Probably the most influential people whose games I watched starting out were psteinx, onyx puffin, tprail and wildfire2099.
a. Whom did you teach the game?
No one intentionally, though I do leave my games open and I post stuff in the forums that may be a use to someone.

Very Happy

28. Do you like Cats? If no, then why are you mentally disturbed? No, I do not like cats, and they do not like me.

Up Close And Personal with Peter de Zeeuw Wed, 15 November 2006 13:56
Great thread, Baron. And a lot more successful than my 'Player Profiles' a while ago. You even have Léachris replying to this one! Kudos man! Thumbs Up

1. What is your Ticket to Ride name?
Peter de Zeeuw.

2. What is your real first name?
Helga. Nah, just kidding. Peter, of course.

3. Do you wish this only to be used in closed games?
Yes, I'm very fond of protecting my identity.

4. Are you Male or Female?
A boy trapped inside a man's body.

5. How many games of TTR have you played?
5911 as we speak. Way too much.

6. How old are you?
29.
a. How tall are you? (English and Metric units if you can.)
5'9 which is 1.76 in Metric units I suppose. (Obviously I'm using a different converter website than Nayeli does.)

7. Where are you from originally?
Rotterdam, Holland.

8. Where do you live now?
Rotterdam, Holland.

9. What is the primary language you speak?
Dutch.

10. What other languages can you speak?
English. I can also understand German but it's hard for me to speak and/or write it.

11. What do you think is the highest score you have attained in Ticket to Ride?
1686 just recently. Then I started playing rumbles again...

12. Are you married?
No.
c. If no, have you been married?
No.
d. Do you want to get married?
Yes, but only to the right person, my soul mate. I truly believe that will add a lot of happiness (and undoubtedly a lot of responsibility) to my life. But where o where can I find someone compatible with my eccentric personality, someone that sees things like I see them? Hm... Perhaps I should try the nuthouse... Rolling Eyes

13. Do you have kids?
No.
b. If no, do you want to have kids someday?
Maybe. But only with the right woman.

14. Who are your three best Ticket to Ride friends?
Hard to say. I like a lot of personalities here. They are all different, but each individual makes this community a colorful whole. And there are also a lot of "unknown" players I like besides the "famous" ones. You'd know if I extra like you when I use your name a lot in my postings - whether that's in a good or bad way. Wink

15. What do you do for a living?
I'm a Research Assistant at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam for a company called RISBO (Rotterdam Institute for Social Policy Research) four days a week. Great job. Gives me a lot of time to play this game.

16. What type of Music do you like?
Mainly I like Metal music. And not the "hail the dark lord, kill your parents and eat the feces of your dog" type, but the intelligent, passionate stuff; and believe me, it exists. There is much great Metal music around but it is highly underrated. And that is because of the bands that started it all. They messed it up and stereotyped it as dark, negative and evil. Other than that I like Rock music, my fellow countrymen Blsf and - yes, I'm so sorry - poppy music, like that of the Backstreet Boys and my recently bought Nick Lacey CD. To make things worse: I do owe two Hilary Duff albums.
My life here at the TTR community is hereby over...
a. Any type you tend to hate?
After the confession I just made this may sound a bit contradictorily, but I dislike (not necessarily 'hate') uninspired music that was made to score a quick top 40 hit only for the money. I DO hate music with empty lyrics like: "Yooo! Yaaay! Party tonight! Shake that ass! Everybody happy?" NO! Everybody NOT happy! Half the world is on anti-depressants nowadays, in case you haven't noticed yet. Life is bigger than that stupid Saturday night party of yours, so don't ask stupid questions like that and broaden your outlook on what's going on in the world.

17. Name 3 of your favorite movies.
Don't ask difficult questions! I love movies! Ok, pfff... Braveheart, Hot Shots Part Deux and that remake of Dawn Of The Dead. There are so much more, but these ones are quickly off the top of my head. For the latter: the original version from 1978 was good too, but, come on... running zombies? That just scared the crap out of me! I don't like Science Fiction, movies with excessive violence and sex and those coarse teenage movies à la American Pie.
a. Name 3 of your favorite books.
The Bible, one other great book and a book that is not really a book but more of a compilation but still would qualify as a book.

18. What are you most afraid of?
Losing myself and do the things I now say I am against.

19. If you could visit any one country in the world for 1 week, where would you go?
Anywhere! I love this earth!

20. If you had one wish what would it be?
Staying faithful while accomplishing my goals. (Ok, that's more then one, but who cares.)

21. Are you religious? Rank on scale of 1 to 10. 1 being you are a Godless Monkey (private joke! No offense meant) and 10 being religion affects everything you do. (You called Monika a 'Godless Monkey'? That's bad. Shame on you, you pagan bastard.)
This is a rather bold question in these times of religious intolerance. But I have to say that as D.I.S. I (still) score a 7 and as being plain Peter I am definitely between 9 and 10. With the exception of playing violent railroad combat, generally I am a man of peace. I strongly condemn religious hate and violence. God is perfectly capable of dealing with bad people without our help. I know that blowing things up is cool, but it's not up to us to judge who is 'good' or who is 'bad'.

22. What is your best physical feature?
My butt.

23. Whose answers to these questions are you looking forward to reading the most?
Everyone's answers interest me.

24. Name two things you have done that you do not think ANYONE else who might read this has done. Try not to be too specific i.e. do not say skinny dipped in Old Millers Pond in buttcrack Missouri. However if it is noteworthy go ahead i.e. skinny dipped in the White House pool would be appropriate.
I have definitely done a few things none of you have done. But I can't be too specific... Well, that's ok. Just trust me on this one.

25. What do you want more than anything else in this world?
A soul mate. But besides that I wish people would stop judging and ridiculing things they are not willing to understand. Then again, that wish is probably in vain, since willful stupidity is a popular thing amongst the majority of humanity.

26. Will you send a photo to The Baron of yourself? Can be kept private or you can allow Baron to post it with all the others he receives permission for. Send to qpzi@yahoo.com.
I already send you two or three photos. Yes, you may post it but I probably have done it myself already. You may share though, no problem.

27. What is your e-mail?
No email. MSN is fine though: padezeeuw@hotmail.com.

28. Do you like Cats? If no, then why are you mentally disturbed?
I love cats! It's because you cannot tell them what to do. They have a will of their own and use it in its entirety. Cats don't follow and will never submit. And that's probably why dominant males don't like them and rather prefer dogs. Even though I like dogs a lot as well, I find them rather dull. They are loud, stinky and they always want to lick my face. Ewww.

29. Do you like animals in general?
I love all animals.

30. Write 2 of your favorite quotes here. (Sorry, here are a few, because I love quotes!)
"The great tragedy of life is not death, but what dies inside us while we live." (Norman Cousins, political journalist)
"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not." (Andre Gide, French novelist)
"We will either find a way, or make one." (Hannibal Barca, military leader)
"It's not the world getting smaller, it's your ass getting bigger." (Unknown - you can use this one in marital disputes Razz)
"Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina." (Joseph, Kindergarten Cop)
Matthew 7:12 (Baron von Schmidt and Wernerus's way of life Wink)
Hebrews 4:12
1 John 3:19-22

Ok, peace out, homie sapiens!

Peter

If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

Tais-toi et sois belle (or beau, if it's used against me Smile).
It's not about who is right. It's about what is left.

And an extra question:
31. Who taught you the game?

I like Bassie's question 31 (okay, if pressed i'll admit i like Bassie too even if i'm 0 for 6 against him, which of course is due to pure luck on his part Smile ) so i'll add my answers.

And an extra question:
31a. Who taught you the game?
Bassie, Da_Vince, Sjaak and Goan (team Orange) told me about it.
The single most influential improvement came from Goan, who suggested maybe it was not so good to have 50 plus trains per game Embarassed

no one yet but am spreading the word .......

Hi

And an extra question:
31. Who taught you the game?
Nobody. But you learn the game by playing it and i learned a lot from Anu in the beginning. Most important game ever was my first game against Razamanaz (of course i lost), he blocked me out of NY. What an experience!! On a subconscious level i was beware of blocking before this game, but never was it used against me from a master of this arts. Oh, i hated him in this moment, my blood pressure was beyond natural heights but no crying or shouting Wink That's the difference between players and whiners Wink

a. Whom did you teach the game?
Nobody. It's useless. You can't have a pupil in this game. You learn from every game you play. But i give hints to players if they wish and i think the recordings helps a lot to improve the overall player quality!

bye, erps

P.S. And i wonder why people are spilling all their secrets in threads read by me (or Peter or The Baron Wink). You can be sure, everything you write is used against you later. Think about it bASSie (your best feature should always written in BIG LETTERS Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil )!
