What Character Would You Play in Game of Thrones?

Craig Chamberlin (The Tech Teacher) asked:

What role would you play if you were cast for a part in Game of Thrones?

Fun question, Craig!

I’d want to play the role of a person who doesn’t get killed.

So, nobody.

Wait! No, I’d be cast as a vision in Daenerys’s dream. That way, I couldn’t die – and the Mother of Dragons would forever be intertwined with my existence.

I win.

Where in the Star Wars Galaxy Would You Live?

Scott Finkelstein asked:

If you could spend a day at any location in the Star Wars universe (i.e. Hoth, Cantina, Death Star), where would you choose to spend it?

Coruscant. A planet that’s all-city? Sounds better than a space station that gets blown up.

For those who don’t know much about Coruscant:

It was generally agreed that Coruscant was, during most of galactic history, the most politically important world in the galaxy. At various times, it was the capital of the Galactic Republic, the Galactic Empire, the New Republic, the Yuuzhan Vong empire, the Galactic Alliance, very briefly the Fel Empire, Darth Krayt’s Galactic Empire, and the Galactic Federation Triumvirate. In controlling Coruscant, these governments controlled most of the galaxy in the process.

What Would You Take to a Remote Island?

Louise Izzabelle asked:

If you were taken to a remote island, what four gadgets would you take with you?

A transponder, a 1,000,000,000 lumens searchlight, a universal translator, and a TARDIS.

I don’t want to be on a remote island for long. How well do you think *I* would last in an environment like that? HELLO! There would likely be no Internet connection and no electric outlets.

It’s safe to say that I would break out in hives long before the first day ended. Let’s not even discuss sleeping on the ground outside where things are creeping and crawling. Yeah… please God no.

It doesn’t usually work too well for me when The Great Indoorsman goes OUTdoors.

What is the Craziest Thing You've Ever Done?

Christopher Bryan Lencioni dared to ask:

On your videos and vlogs, you have done some crazy things for viewers. What would you say is the craziest thing you have done on your videos/vlogs?

HELLO! You must not have been around for long, eh? I’ve been known to do a lot of crazy things on video, but the best (worst?!) always tend to happen during a “Subservient Chris” broadcast. People donate money to whatever cause I’m raising money for and request me to do odd things. I’ve had dogs licking peanut butter off of my face and had to dress in a…. well, take a look for yourself. This has to be the best (again – worst?!).

The video where Diana did my makeup is a VERY close second!

Ask Your Future Self a Question!

Andrew Anthony Cristiano writes:

If you could ask your future self one question, what would it be?

How did you get here?

No, seriously. That’s what I’d ask myself. I’d want to know everything; what did I do along the way? What choices did I make? Which mistakes did I learn from? I think that the simple “how did you get here” would encompass all of these things!

What would you ask your future self?

Which Famous People Would You Invite to Dinner?

Cathy asked me:

If you could have any five personalities over for dinner — living or dead, fictional or not — who would they be and why?

Interesting question! I had to think about this one a bit. I admit that my answers to this probably change on a regular basis. For now, though:

  • Neil DeGrasse Tyson — because it’s him.
  • Ole Kirk Christiansen — because it’s him.
  • Dave Prowse — because it’s him.
  • You — because you’re reading this.
  • Indiana Jones — because it’s him.

Who would you have over to dinner, and why?

Which LEGO Set is Your Favorite?

Peter Friess asked:

Which LEGO set was your favorite to build and why?

Death Star. Long build, but good memories.

I started the build on my birthday, and we got my name to trend (briefly) on Twitter – without cheating the system.

Where Do You Buy Canvas Prints?

Tim Morrill asks:

Hey, Chris. In one of your videos I remember you ordered some canvas prints, but I can’t find that video again. Was wondering what webpage you order them from? Thanks!

After asking all of you which print we should get made, we ordered our new living room print from CanvasPop! The quality is fantastic and it looks phenomenal hanging over our fireplace.

If you’d like to grab one of these for yourself, you can save 30% by using the coupon code PIRILLO — how awesome is that?

How Much Wood Could There Be?

Luke Hebblethwaite thought he was being a smarty-pants when he asked me:

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Since I have no Earthly idea, I thought I’d better get some help with this particular answer. I turned to my trusty sidekick Siri.

Her answer?

Wood

Priceless.

What is The Best Weird Al Song?

David Berkovich kindly asked:

What is your favorite Weird Al song?

Weirdly enough, I don’t have a favorite. I’ve always been a fan of his more quirky originals, however – like “Hardware Store” or “Happy Birthday” – or any one of his polkas.

Yes, polkas. Don’t judge.
