(3) Would you name a child of yours after you? Possibly, I'm named after my Dad
(4) If you had to switch first names with a friend of yours, who would you switch with? Ummm, I always liked Dominic as a name, but I don't know anyone called Dominic. This is a stupid question, I can't think of any
(5) What's the way people most often mispronounce any part of your name? Sometimes people mishear my name as Ron. I hate that

(7) Do you believe in the traditional view of Heaven and Hell? Nope, not in any way
(8) Do you think God has a gender? Nope, because he doesn't exist
(9) Do you think science counteracts religion? Definitely. Science is my religion.
(10) Do you believe in organized religion? I believe in talking with people, but not in an organised religion sense
(11) Where do you think we go when we die? Nowehere. We just cease to exist
(12) Do you feel a little funny thinking about the questions in this section? Nah, I think about this sort of stuff a fair bit.

(13) How easy is it to make you laugh? Pretty easy, I'm a fairly humourous guy.
(14) What person you know makes you laugh the most? Chris usually makes me chuckle, but often unintentionally...
(15) Do you laugh at jokes you know you shouldn't? Far too often. Dead baby jokes are the funniest!
(16) Do you tell jokes you know you shouldn't? Yep, my kind of humour.
(17) What words instantly make you laugh or at least smile? "Bottom," purely because of a few times in Biology...
(18) What do you think is the funniest thing you've ever said or written? Ummm, can't think of any right now, but I have had my rare moments of wit and insightful genius.

(19) Do you ever dance to music when nobody's watching? Yep, all the time. Especially headbanging to metal music.
(20) What is/are the worst song(s) you have ever heard? Anything by S Club Juniors. Or the Cheeky Girls. Or Blue. Or in fact any pre-packaged teen-pop crap.
(21) What song(s) do you wish you could understand a little better? Street Spirit by Radiohead. Indecipherable lyrics, but a fantastic song. Actually, any Radiohead song full stop.
(22) What song(s) are constantly in your head? Ummm, Killing In The Name Of by RATM for one. Kashmir by Led Zeppelin is another.

(30) What movie(s) do you simply not understand the appeal of? Romantic comedies, like Runaway Bride. Did that film ever suck?!

(33) What do you think your answer to the previous question reveals about your personality? Ummm, something subconscious, I imagine

(64) Could you carry on a relationship with someone with the same first name as a family member? Yeah, what does that matter?

(67) Have you ever been romantically attracted to someone physically unattractive? Nope, I tend to go for lookers
