1. If you were a nocturnal animal, what nocturnal animal would you be?
owl, hands down. i find them to be so just ridiculously awesome. yes, yes. i'm a NERD.
2. Which is better: to obey the law to avoid punishment, to obey the law because the law makes sense, or to obey the law because everyone should?
because it makes sense.
3. Who is your favorite all time movie villian?
i love V from V for Vendetta because he walks the line between villian and hero for the whole movie, depending on how you look at it. i just adore that movie.
4. Are any kind of ethics involved in wearing a hat?
ethics? well...no.
5. When is the best time for you to take a 20 minute nap? Why?
late afternoon, after my classes for the day are done but before dinner/rehearsal time. it's the time of day when i feel most sluggish/bored/unproductive, and my nights are usually as packed (if not more) as my days so it works.

My answers:

1. If you were a nocturnal animal, what nocturnal animal would you be? Some kind of cat. (I always have to make my first answer a cat.) Failing that, an owl would be pretty cool, with the turning the head around and the flying...

2. Which is better: to obey the law to avoid punishment, to obey the law because the law makes sense, or to obey the law because everyone should? Because it makes sense.

3. Who is your favorite all time movie villian? I never know what my answer should be for these sorts of questions. I don't know, all of my choices fly out of my head as soon as the question is asked! Darth Vader, maybe. *shrug*

4. Are any kind of ethics involved in wearing a hat? You take it off indoors. Seriously. Especially if you're sitting at a restaurant table, in class, or somewhere else where you should show respect to the people you're with.

5. When is the best time for you to take a 20 minute nap? Why? I don't do well with 20-minute naps. Naps in general aren't all that great with me unless they're perfectly timed with how tired I am, because half the time I wake up even more tired. But the right afternoon nap, from about two to three-thirty, can be amazing.

A cat.

2. Which is better: to obey the law to avoid punishment, to obey the law because the law makes sense, or to obey the law because everyone should?
I really, really hope everyone answers because it makes sense. The first as well as the last answer mean you would (maybe) follow laws blindly, even if your politicians are going a wrong way (just think of the Third Reich).

3. Who is your favorite all time movie villian?
Well, if V from V for Vendetta counts then definatly him.

4. Are any kind of ethics involved in wearing a hat?
Depends on the person and the hat.

5. When is the best time for you to take a 20 minute nap? Why?
Early afternoon/after lunch. Because I am most tired then.

1. If you were a nocturnal animal, what nocturnal animal would you be?</strong>

Oooo...a bat!

2. Which is better: to obey the law to avoid punishment, to obey the law because the law makes sense, or to obey the law because everyone should?

To obey the law because it makes sense. I'm a spirit-of-the-law kinda gal.

3. Who is your all-time favorite movie villain?

Jack Torrence, hands down. All work and no play...

4. Are any kind of ethics involved in wearing a hat?

I'm a little old-fashioned about hats...don't know why.
Don't wear it if it'll block someone's view
Don't wear it at the dinner table, at church, in the house, or any place fancy (unless it is an appropriate hat for the occasion--Easter hat in church, for example)
Don't wear it in a way that makes it look like you were drunk when you put it on

It's about the spirit of the law, not the letter, and the spirit here is all about respecting yourself, the church, your family, and the home.

5. When is the best time for you to take a 20 minute nap? Why?

1:30 pm. Rudy gets off work at 2. If I nap at 1:30, I'll be up and around and looking busy by the time he gets home!

1. If you were a nocturnal animal, what nocturnal animal would you be?
umm... Hedgehog. They rock. I'd prefer to be one that knows the green cross code, though. They only rock in 3 dimensions.

2. Which is better: to obey the law to avoid punishment, to obey the law because the law makes sense, or to obey the law because everyone should?
It's better that people obey the law because the law makes sense. I think If everybody on earth thought the world's laws made sense then the other two options would probably follow for the majority of society. One would want to avoid the punishment and laws would be the same for everyone... Including governments. But, obviously, there would still be crime because human nature makes us like to the exact opposite of what makes sense.

3. Who is your favorite all time movie villian?
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist... Keyser Soze!
Useless Fact #247: 'Soze' is Hungarian for 'Verbal'.
Snape from the harry potters... but moreso in the books, especially Half Blood Prince.

4. Are any kind of ethics involved in wearing a hat?
One must doff one's hat upon making a greeting to an aquaintence; This applies only to males, females -whose bonnets are often tied beneath the chin- are not ethically obligated to do so. if one is smoking a pipe or cigarillo at the time, this must be held in the left hand (after the doffing has occured) while shaking(Man) / kissing(female) of hands takes place. Hats must be removed while in business meetings, eating (formally or informally) or attending religious service unless that religion requres a specific type of hat to be worn. jolly festive some of these hats are, too!

5. When is the best time for you to take a 20 minute nap? Why?
Scientifically, it's supposed to be in the mid-afternoon. It refeshes and better enables working in the late afternoon, where there is a general dip in workers morale/motivation. There was a study a few months ago which showed a productivity increase in workers who took part in the experiment.

1. If you were a nocturnal animal, what nocturnal animal would you be?

Probably an owl.

2. Which is better: to obey the law to avoid punishment, to obey the law because the law makes sense, or to obey the law because everyone should?

Because the law makes sense is definitely better.

3. Who is your favorite all time movie villian?

Darth Vader

4. Are any kind of ethics involved in wearing a hat?

The only real instance I can think of where true ethics are involved in wearing a hat is in the case of religion. For instance wearing of the yarmulke or the tradition of hats in the African American church. I suppose collective hat etiquette would constitute the 'ethics' of hat wearing although I personally don't think these etiquette standards are taken too seriously these days. If you really want to push it you could point to the fact that bad guys wear black hats and good guys wear white hats. (I said it was pushing it heh)

5. When is the best time for you to take a 20 minute nap? Why?

When I have a really intense migraine and have had to take a shot of Imitrex-it works better if I lay down and have a short nap/rest plus it's usually necessary anyway to lay down when the migraine is that bad cause functioning is too impaired.
