I guess I wouldn't mind finally getting to finish college somehow.

Hello DWF,

What would you say is your biggest regret in life so far?

Probably not having my own family by this point.

Probably my friends, I have a wide variety of friends from a numbers of different sources and places around the world, even though I've not travelled very far from own state.

I started at Ohio State and I would like to finish there but the tution seems to be getting out of hand. Plus I'd have to re-apply which might not be as easy as it used to be. :(

I've been remiss:  

DWF, what are your views on spirituality?

Well I think everybody has to find their path to God, but I do kind of have mixed feelings about the afterlife on one it's a comfort to think there is one, but on the other hand I'm not keen on the idea of sin being passed on from generation to another.

Sorry if someone else has asked any of the following questions and I am being repetitive, but. . .

DWF - you are my answer man.  How did you amass all this information?

If you could take a trip anywhere your heart desires, where is that one place you would go -- money being no object and how long would you stay?

Is there one person with whom you would love to have a long conversation with and explore his/her mind?  If so, who is that person?  (You know, the old marooned on a desert island bit.)

Do you have any pets? If yes, what was it about this pet that drew you to him/her/it.  If you do not have any pets, why not?

When you dream, do you dream in vivid colors?  Have you ever had a repetitive dream or lucid dreams?

What is your favorite musical genre?  I know you may have many, but what is the one you return to time and time again?

When you went to Ohio State, what was your major?  If you could go back to university, would your major be the same or has it changed now that you are older?

Is there an "ah hah!" moment in your life when the clouds lifted and you found your answer?

Who Are You Lyrics
Artist(Band):The Who


Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

I woke up in a Soho doorway
A policeman knew my name
He said "You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away"

I staggered back to the underground
And the breeze blew back my hair
I remember throwin' punches around
And preachin' from my chair

Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
'Cause I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I took the tube back out of town
Back to the Rollin' Pin
I felt a little like a dying clown
With a streak of Rin Tin Tin

I stretched back and I hiccoughed
And looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the Tin Pan
God, there's got to be another way

Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, who are you(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh Who the f**k are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?
who are who are who are you x11

Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
C'mon tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I know there's a place you walked
Where love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup
I only feel right on my knees

I spit out like a sewer hole
Yet still recieve your kiss
How can I measure up to anyone now
After such a love as this?

Well who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
oh, I really wanna know? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
tell, tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

C'mon, c'mon who? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, Who the f*ck are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, tell me who are you (Who are you?, ooo?)

I really wanna to know
Oh, I really want to know
C'mon tell me who are you, you, you?
Who are you?

Aha, that explains it.  I listen to folk music.   :cool: :blush:  

SFG
"A song is like a picture of a bird in flight; the bird was moving before the picture was taken, and no doubt continued after."   - Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger's life was a picture of an idea in flight, and the idea will continue long after.  As long as there are people with goodness and courage in their hearts, the idea will continue forever.
