1 If you could light any one monument in any nation on fire, which would it be?
Atlantis. Because, hey, it's really hard to burn a sunken, lost city.

2 What smell would you declare a national treasure, and forbid it being smelt except on holidays?
Gun powder. And the only national holiday it would be smellable on would be "stay home and don't open your doors day".

3 Who is the scariest person alive?

4 What is the nature of darkness?

5 You vs Descartes I: Is it possible to doubt your own existence?
Yes. It's possible to doubt anything.

Both see a great deal. Also, both are dead.

7 Which major corporation would you like to see brought to justice the most?
The major U.S. political parties.

8 How many times have you raised your eyebrows today (each eyebrow counts once)
A few dozen

9 You vs Descartes II: Why are (xyz) coordinates called Cartesian when he only described the coordinates of a plane?
Because "Cartesian plus Z" is cumbersome.

10 You've heard of it. You've probably had beer there. You may have even gotten kicked out of there once. Twice. But what, in your opinion, does the word "Slainte" *mean*?
"Cheers", roughly.

11 You vs Descartes III: Chainsaw or Shotgun? (he gets the other one)
I want the chainsaw.

12 What is Conrad's favorite Irish myth?
The one about the bard and the kid and the fish?
