    Samurai, I guess. All three have been romanticized almost beyond recognition in literature, but of the three, samurai seem the most appealing.

    Reincarnated as: dolphin, albatross, or cheetah?

    Cheetah, definitely. They're some of the coolest animals on the planet. I've been a contributor to the Cheetah Conservation Fund for quite a few years now.



    Snow, sleet or hail?

    Snow. At least snow is pretty while it's inconvenient. Sleet and hail are just kind of ugly and destructive.


    Igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic?

    Sedimentary. I saw a lot of it in a local creekbed when I was growing up.

    Mountains, hills or plains?

    Hills. Like them all, but it was more hilly where I grew up.

    Arsenic, cyanide or strychnine?

    I'll have some arsenic with my old lace.

    Hurricane, tornado or monsoon?

    Monsoon. I spent two years in Ecuador, and the idea that it rains hard every single day for four months is actually somewhat romantic.


    Lose in a horrible accident: one eye, the thumb of your preferred writing hand, or the entire other hand?

    The thumb. Just having one remaining eye is too slim a safety margin against future total blindness, and losing an entire hand would be pretty awful, to say nothing of inconvenient. I guess I could always learn to write differently, though.

    Visiting Athens, Boston or Canterbury?

    Canterbury - it's not that far away, but I have never got around to going there.

    Snowdrops, Bluebells or Daffodils?

    Dallas; we have friends there. Well...as long as it isn't in the summer. They aren't that good of friends.


    Instantly know the whole truth about: the Whitechapel murders (i.e. Jack the Ripper), JFK assassination, or the Black Dahlia murder?

    Speaking of Dallas... the JFK assassination. It's long interested me. I'm 95% convinced Oswald acted alone, but it'd be nice to be utterly sure, one way or the other.

    Visiting Geneva, Hiroshima or Indianapolis?

    I've been to Indy. And of the other two, which I know only by photos, Hiroshima looks like a kinda regular city (an impressive feat in itself, when you think about it), and Geneva looks like some enchanted wonderland. Give me Geneva.

    Mars. Maybe find life. Sadly, won't find gorgeous naked red women like John Carter did.

    Scooby Doo, Rin Tin Tin or Lassie?

    That's a toughie. Scooby kinda freaks me out - I guess if I were a cartoon too, it'd be OK to hang with him.

    Lagos. Barrister Mohammed Abacha, son of the late Prime Minister Sani Abacha, has some money for me.


    Own: a working lightsaber, a working Harry Potter-style invisibility cloak, or a working Star Trek-style transporter?

    Hmm...when I was 15, the invisibility cloak. Now, definitely the transporter. Being able to get to all the great places there are without having to subject myself to 21st Century air travel. -- what joy.

    Backache. I get 'em now and then anyway, so I'm kinda used to them.

    All of them are just one big corn field to me, but maybe Nebraska for the beef?

    Venice. The pictures don't do it justice, I'm sure.

    Been to Quito, stood straddling the equator, been there, done that. Beautiful town. Of the other two, give me Paris, by a nose.

    Friends. My wife and I used to watch it obsessively in Nunavut, it was like we could pretend we were young and in a big city hanging out with our friends.

    Hill Street Blues, L.A Law or NYPD Blue?

    L.A. Law - but it was the one that got the most screentime over here.

    Peter Sellers, Spike Miliigan or Harry Secombe

    Never heard of the last guy, but I have many happy memories of watching the Pink Panther movies with my dad, who loved loved loved 'em. So definitely Peter Sellers. Lines that stuck in my head (in that incredible mock-French accent):

    "Not anymore!"
    "The Pope?"
    "Do you have a license for that minkey?"
    "Does your dog bite?"

    Visiting Samarkand, Tashkent or Ushant?

    Any of the three would be cool, but give me Samarkand if I have to choose one.

    Never wear again: white, black, or blue?

    No-one in their right mind would ever visit Walsall for fun. I'll pick Victoria, as in state, to visit

    Ben and Jerry's, Haagen Dazs or Baskin-Robbins?

    All OK in their own way, but Haagen Dazs has the happiest memories for me, so that.

    Galveston, I guess. It looks like it has some intersting historical things. But not in the summertime.

    Lake Michigan, Superior, or Erie?

    Saratoga, maybe. I've never been to a horse race, and that's probably one of the best places for it.

    Applebee's. God help me, I actually like the place. Never been to a Hooters, and I think only once or twice to a Denny's.

    Visiting Tucson, University Heights or Vera Cruz?
