The Top Ten
1 How do I rate as an interviewer?

This is one of the trickiest questions an interviewer can ask. The simple formula to tackle this one is to speak honestly about your views.

This question bumped you down to a four. A five would be better in this situation, wouldn't it? But nah, four.

2 If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs -- such as food and water -- were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?

Well, I'd get a portrait of you and your autograph. I admire you so much! Damn it, just give me the job.

A computer and a charger. I would already have a house because that's a human need.

My large stereo system and Vulgar Display of Power by Pantera.

3 If you were a salad, what kind of dressing would you be?

Right now? This very moment? Well, if I were a salad, I know I'd be splashing my dressing...

4 If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

The Most Magnificent and Perfect Human That Ever Stepped Earth! Did I get the job?

"How to Tackle Embarrassment!"
Ha ha! Just kidding! I haven't thought about that.

Hmm... The Great Legacy of the Pickle in the Dapper.

5 If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?

Travel in time and make it longer.

Find out how to not die in six months.

6 If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be and why?

History... Jesus, because I want to go to Heaven.

I'd have dinner with Mahatma Gandhi.

7 If you were a car, what type would you be?

That car from Christine, so I could murder my enemies. No, wait - that's a bit too far.

A Mustang or a Jaguar. I love sports cars!

8 In the news story of your life, what would the headline say?

"Cable Connection and T.V. Is Scientifically Proven as Vital for Life"

9 If you could be a super hero, what would you want your superpowers to be?

Super flexibility, so I could be super tall.

I want to control time, actually. Since I watch Heroes, I could teleport as well.

10 If you were a type of food, what type of food would you be?

I'd be an Oreo so people could argue over how I'm eaten. I'd just sit there like, "They're arguing over me, how flattering!"

Hopefully, something with dark meat and highly spiced, like venison vindaloo.

A pickle. Pickles are awesome, but I have never tasted them.
