I’m going to do something I haven’t done since the start of this
blog – I’m actually going to do them 20 question type quizzes! I’ll
grab a couple from my Friendster bulletin board and do them as quick as
I can. Why? I fear that if I stop thinking, my brain will explode. On
with the quizzes!
1. NAME: Huai Bin
2. DO YOU THINK YOU’RE NORMAL: It would be a stretch to claim that I am…in plain English, no.
3. DO PEOPLE FIND YOU STRANGE: That’s what they always tell me.
4. DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD: It depends on when you ask me…the faith
in a divine creator is linked to the simple physics equation that
dictates force in relation to speed and mass.
Let’s assume that force (faith in God) is constant (well, there was a
study that suggests the human brain is wired to believe in a superior
divine being…), so speed and mass are the influential denominators.
Thus, if force is constant, pushing an apple would be easier than
pushing a watermelon. This is because speed and mass is inversely
This example also can be used literally. The more…er, speed, shall we say, is involved, the less likely I will be going to mass (church service) because that would be…well, a drag
(refer to force). Thus, the more speed I have, the less mass I’ll need
to achieve force (in this case, I probably think I’m God). I haven’t
really tested this out in the other direction though, I loathe to think
of sitting through mass.
However, if I’m sober when you ask me, I’ll just say “Yes” to make you go away.
5. DO YOU SING A LOT: Yes. I dare say that some of my exultations
would not be classified as “singing” though. I broke into song just
this evening, I was so excited about the shimmering prism waiting for
me at home…I savagely butchered through the lyrics of what I call Track 8 from Umph in guttural loud growls while thumping
on the steering wheel. I was so into it, I was SHOUTING “LA LA LA LA LA
LA, HEY, PUSH IT HARDER! I’M ON A MISSION! DA DA DA DA DUM! ONE TWO
THREE…” and I turned to the left, where there was a man driving his
wife and daughter home, and the daughter was positively gaping at me
while her mom nudged her so she won’t stare. That’s how loud I was
singing…people in other cars hear me. I didn’t miss a beat and
SCREAMED “KICK IT! LA LA LA I’M ON A MISSION!” so hard it probably
contorted my face into monster like proportions because I made them
jump. I was still pounding away at the steering wheel as I drove away
from the apparently immobilized vehicle.
Ask them if I was singing?
6. DO YOU BACKSTAB: I don’t. I’ll say it in front of your face.
7. ARE YOU A GOOD FRIEND: No, I’m afraid not.
8. ARE YOU IN LOVE: This question is rather ambiguous…it doesn’t
state the object of affection. Please ask “…with rocks?”, “with your
girlfriend?”, or something like that.
9. ARE YOU YOUNG: 23. To use a cliche, I’ve learnt a lot and I still have a lot to learn.
10. EVER BEEN A LEADER OF SOMETHING: Yes, lots of things. All of them unsavory.
11. EVER KILLED A LIVING CREATURE: I think the question would be
better phrased as “killed someone”. Who hasn’t killed a “living
12. LAST ODD THING DONE: This quiz. I haven’t done this in a long time and I’m not the type to do it.
13. DO YOU WEAR MAKE-UP: Last time I wore makeup was for a class production…so, no.
14. DO YOU REBEL: I would for a good cause. Even for a bad one. ;)
15. EVER STARTED A FIRE: What is this? Questions for children or
people of under average intelligence? Yes, I have started a fire. I
like fires. Ignition, they call it an obsession, but I think it’s kinda
bitchin’, I think it’s kinda neat!
The question would be better phrased as “Ever committed arson?”
16. DO YOU THINK YOU’RE EVIL: Everyone has the potential to be evil,
under the right circumstances. Man is inherently evil, and don’t you
think otherwise. You can be evil too.
I’m not though. I don’t think I am anyway.
17. DO YOU LIKE LYING: No. It’s inevitable that you’ll get caught up
in it. It is sometimes necessary though. Just ask veritas. Oh what a
tangled web we weave, when we conspire to conceive.
Please don’t correct me on that quote. I know it’s not how it really goes. I like this version just fine. Let it be.
18. DO YOU REGRET: Regrets, I’ve had a few. I don’t think about them
though…I technically can’t, since I’m on high dose benzodiazepine
therapy. It’s very easy to forget things. Just take a fistful of Xanax.
19. DO YOU HAVE A BESTFRIEND: I guess he does fit the definition “best friend” the most…
20. DO PEOPLE HATE YOU: Yes. I don’t give a fuck though. You can’t expect everyone to like you.
21. DO YOU HATE PEOPLE: Of course. I hate a lot of people.
22. CAN YOU KILL SOMEBODY: Hmm…I place little value on the human
life…so yes, I will if the situation warrants it. I’ll only do it for
a good reason (pissing me off is a good one) and if I’m fairly sure
I’ll get away with it. Or for self-defense. A lot of people confuse
“can” and “will”. It’s one thing to think you can and freeze up when the moment comes. It’s another thing to know that you will…
23. DO YOU CUT YOURSELF?: Nope. Why waste the energy when there’s plenty of people out there who’s willing to do it for you? ;)
24. EVER TASTED BLOOD: Yes. Tastes like chicken. Oh wait…blood, you said? That tastes like metallic water.
25. DO YOU CARE WHAT OTHERS MAY THINK OF YOU?: I think everyone does
to a certain extent. I don’t care about the opinions of people I don’t
like, but I do care about the opinions of people I like. Well, a couple
of them anyway.
26. EVER DONE ANYTHING OCCULT: That is so adolescent angst type
behavior…been there, done that, bought the T-shirt, and it says “The
occult – Admission only for kids 14 years and below”.
What? Do you think chanting paeans to Satan to bring misfortune over
your enemy while killing a goat will get you anywhere? Just take your
knife and do it yourself, pussy.
27. ARE YOU GOTHIC: Gothic people are lame. Please see #26 for the reasons.
“The world is a depressing dark void?”
I heard that real Goths (haha) commit suicide. Are you hardcore enough, goth?
The final exit?
Dare you do it?
Bitch…please, you’re not goth, STFU and go away.
28. CONSUME DRUGS: I don’t need to answer this, I presume. It’s pretty obvious that I do.
29. WHAT DO YOU WEAR: I like to wear pajama pants. I can’t wear it all the time though.
30. YOUR SKIN COLOR: I’m Chinese. Does that make me yellow? I don’t have jaundice.
31. DO YOU LIKE THE SUN: Hell, no. It brings into stark relief what
the darkness hides. It also brings out the Shadow People and makes me
disoriented. Go away.
33 .HAVE YOU LOST SOMEONE YOU LOVE: Hmm…I’ve been dumped before, if that’s what it means.
34. HOW DOES GRIEF FEEL:
GRIEF FEELS GOOD!
Oh, grief…I thought this was a trick question, asking about some
random guy called GRIEF. Well, grief doesn’t feel all that good, so I
suggest leveraging modern pharmacology and make grief go away with the
various substances that the wonderful world of chemistry has given us:
1. TO FORGET
2. TO IGNORE
3. TO NOT CARE
Things to avoid:
May greatly exacerbate grief during the comedown.
Because you’ll regret it the next day.
Things which may work:
1. Psychedelics which are not emphatogens
LSD/magic mushrooms to make you reflect on your grief and deal with it.
Ketamine to dissociate yourself from grief. Both to scare yourself
35. YOUR ROLE MODEL: I don’t have one.
36. YOUR HEART DESIRES TO BE WITH WHOM: The one who can save me,
rehabilitate me and walk with me down the right path. The loyal,
fiercely loving and protective savior who can pull me up from the one
way spiral downwards. Hail Mary!
37. YOUR LISTENING TO: Feng tau music at a volume which will cause
auditory damage on extended periods of exposure. You have to shout a
bit to get my attention.
38. DO HATE YOURSELF: Heh. It’s funny, this question cropping up. Yeah, I guess I do, or else I won’t be so self-destructive.
39. DID THIS QUIZ MAKE SENSE: I’ve never seen one that does. It was
great knowing you though, you gave me a chance to say things I normally
won’t blog about.
40. PARTING WORDS: For God sent his Son to lead the wild into the ways of the Man…follow me!
41. WHO DO FEEL LIKE KILLING RIGHT NOW?: I can think of a couple of
people off the top of my head, but no way I’m telling, this might be
construed as evidence for premeditated murder if the worse should
I don’t know if this is meant for substituting the letter of the
alphabet for something else or using the same form words, but
precedence seems to suggest it’s a pre-formed quiz, so here goes:
A – Age: 23
B – Band listening to right now: It’s not a band…feng tau music.
C – Career in future: A job that pays me an obscene amount of money to do nothing.
D – Dad’s name: It’s the same as mine, Mr. Poh.
E – Easiest person to talk to: Ah Boon
F – Favorite song at the moment: Moonlight Shadow from a feng tau compilation. It’s very uplifting.
The last that ever she saw him,
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
He passed on worried and warning,
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
Lost in a river last Saturday night,
Far away on the other side.
He was caught in the middle of a desperate fight,
And she couldn’t find how to push through.
G – Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms: Worms. Bears are harder to eat.
H – Hometown: Sibu, Sarawak.
I – Instruments: I did piano till Grade 4, memorized some strings on an electric guitar. That’s it.
K – Kids: I don’t think I’ll be a good parent at this stage in my life…
L – Longest car ride ever (longest trip by car): From Sibu to
Kuching and back up right to Kota Kinabalu, passing Brunei and back
down again. The kilometer count goes well into the four digits.
M – Mom’s name: Mrs. Poh, like mine, except she has a Mrs instead of a Mr suffix.
N – Number of siblings: 1 – “my doctor sister”, as I like to call her.
P – Phobia[s]: Getting infected with HIV, spiders, etc. etc. I’ll still be here writing if I’m going to put everything down.
Q – Favorite Quote(s): Condemnant quod non intellegunt. It’s Latin for “They condemn because they do not understand”.
R – Reason to smile: Crystal.
S – Song you sang last: That moonlight shadow song.
T – Time you wake up: I did not go to sleep and I don’t plan to.
However, the answer is 7:06 AM on normal weekdays. I don’t sleep in the
U – Unknown fact about me: I was so vain I had three facial moles
removed by a surgeon (who charged RM 100 each) when I was 13 and two
more when I was 17. I didn’t want to go to a quack doctor, so I went to
a real surgeon who did proper incisions and stitches. There you
go…bet you didn’t know that.
V – Vegetable you hate: I don’t like most vegetables…
W – Worst habit: Choosing the path of least resistance when it comes
to my substance dependency…and you know which way that is…
X – X-rays you’ve had: I’ve had several…first one was for my
application for PR (Permanent Residence) status in New Zealand when I
Y – Yummy food: Chinese.
Z – Zodiac sign: Aries. The first sun sign in the zodiac. The color
of Aries is usually red, and that reflects in the blog design. I think
the best phrase that I found sums up my personality is this column
where it said to Aries – “You like extremes.”
This one is fitting too:
Adventurous and energetic
Pioneering and courageous
Enthusiastic and confident
Dynamic and quick-witted
Selfish and quick-tempered
Impulsive and impatient
Foolhardy and daredevil
Traditional Aries traits.
Next! Oh, and last!
3 and 5
FAVORITE time of the day?
5 o’ clock onwards…
I don’t have a “favorite” one, people change, friendships change, the
answer would be different the next time you ask, so there’s no point in
Cold, cold, cold. ;)
I have the same answer to this one as to the “FAVORITE friend” question. These things are too dynamic.
Tweaking, writing while tweaking, just tweaking, tweaking with tweaking, and oh, tweaking.
Red. Black runs a close second though.
Sheesh, don’t ask me now, everything sounds bad to me. No food! Food is bad. Urgh…
Tabula rasa. Literally. That’s “blank slate” for the three of you who didn’t know. Yeah, you, don’t look away.
Well, I’ve considered many books to be my favorite books in their time. It’s another unanswerable question.
I don’t like it per se, but it’s the perfect theme song to my life.
Green Day – Geek Stink Breath
I’m on a mission
I made my decision to lead a path of self destruction
A slow progression
Killing my complexion and it’s rotting out my teeth…
I’m on a roll
No self control
I’m blowing off steam with methamphetamine
Well, I don’t know what I want
That’s just all that I’ve got…
And I’m picking scabs off my face…
Every hour my blood is turning sour
And my pulse is beating out of time
I found a treasure filled with sick pleasure, and it sits on a thin white line
I’m on a mission
I got no decision
Like a cripple running the rat race
Wish in one hand, shit in the other, and see which one gets filled first.
FAVORITE resto/fastfood/coffee shop?
I can just eat anywhere when I want to eat…I’m not a picky eater.
Chinese New Year.
Oh, I’m not going to touch this one with a foot long pole…
Slacks, t-shirt and sneakers.
Figuring out ways to overcome sobriety.
Right now? It’s in this chair, in my room. I don’t want to move.
FAVORITE brand of JEANS?
Quiksilver. Just coz of the reasons I bought them – ran out of clothes on top of Mt Buller while skiing and snowboarding.
FAVORITE TV show?
I don’t watch TV.
FAVORITE radio station?
I don’t listen to the radio…
The time I went on a high dose shrooms trip and took a hit of nitrous
oxide and achieved total mind-body separation. Those are fancy words
for “the time I embarrassed myself in front of innumerable strangers
and friends while totally fucked up on magic mushrooms”.
FAVORITE gift that you received?
I don’t have one…but it’ll always make me happy when it’s from someone unexpected.
FAVORITE member of the family?
Hmm…I don’t know…they’re all great in their own way.
FAVORITE gift that you gave to someone?
FAVORITE person (last month)?
I really can’t think of any…
FAVORITE person (at present)?
It’s hard to think of one…I’ll go for Ah Boon, he has this knack of knowing when I’m in the mood to talk.
FAVORITE fad/craze nowadays?
Beats the shit out of me…I don’t follow fads or crazes.
Seizure Chicken. It’s this game where low seizure threshold people
(like benzodiazepine dependant people) increase their chances of a
seizure by taking a substance that lowers the seizure threshold further
(like crystal methamphetamine). It’s like playing chicken with a
seizure…you basically tweak for as long as possible while not taking
benzos. Fun, fun, fun!
WHAT IS YOUR WISH?
Yeah right, fuck that altruistic shit.
I want people to remember me for the great things I did (which numbers at zero, on last count) after I die.
For God said He would send His one begotten Son to lead the wild into the ways of the man…follow me…
Eat my flesh, flesh and be my flesh…
Come with me…
