Handily the Beatles, notwithstanding my soft spot for Alan Price.

Thank goodness -- I thought I was losing it.  Heh.

Cool as the bullet trains are, I have to go with the Orient express.

Penguins...especially ones that can dance. Plus their babies are cuter.

That's true, baby penguins are cuter.

DC. Marvel is like Chinese food, in that I like it but find it fundamentally unsatisfying.

Werewolves, for some reason vamps have always kinda struck me as arrogant.

Demons...they're well powerful, but can rely solely on their power...but devils think more

Superman on the basis that his obligations are global rather than local in nature and because he is so astonishing that it's next to impossible to write anything good with him in it (makes mental note to fish out much-read copy of "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow").

Port or sherry?

Oh wait...next question...Neither, I prefer Vodka...but if I had to choose...Port.

Augh, neither.  But if I have to tolerate being in the presence of one or the other, cigarettes.  I'm beginning to have less-negative associations with them as my lover's a smoker.

Cotton or linen?

Cotton

phenylephrine or oxymetazoline?

(the first: a decongestant medicine you swallow, also tends to increase heart rate a bit, not too good for sleep. Generally replacing the more effective but easily-manufactured-into-speed pseudoephidrine. The second: a non-stimulant decongestant that you spray up the nose.)

Phenylephrine is the false decongestant of Satan.

Sample conversation from the chemist:

Self: I am clogged up to buggery. Give me some Sudafed.
Bug-eyed adolescent: Certainly, sir. Here is some Sudafed PE.
Self: Are you suggesting that I stick these tablets up my nose?
Bug-eyed adolescent: What?
Self: Well, given that most of the phenylephrine would be absorbed by the lining of my stomach, I assume that you're proposing nasal application.
Bug-eyed adolescent: What?
Self: Stop quivering, tool of the medical-industrial complex, and give me something with pseudoephedrine in it. Right now.

Oxymetazoline, with little enthusiasm.

Amen on the Pseudophed PE comment :(

Paperclips, because with a very small amount of bending I can make them look like the Virgin Mary.  Sortof.

Serif fonts or sans-serif fonts?

My favourite fonts are sans-serif but philosophically i prefer serifs as a bond with a less utilitarian age.

Black and metal clippies - you can make office weapons out of them! Of course, paperclips have been really handy for miniature conversions.

As for pseudoephidrine: over here, you can buy it, but they take your details and put it into a computer, so that they can check and see that you're not pseudo-surfing. And the police also look at these. So it basically lets people have their effective decongestants, but also helps prevent drug abuse.

Anyway... scary ghosts from actually frightening horror movies, or ghost-type Pokemon?
