The Solipsist's Facebook Fun Quiz

If you're on Facebook (or, as the kids say, "If you have a Facebook"), you've probably been "tagged" in someone's notes. Occasionally, these notes take the form of questionnaires about music or movies or just general personal trivia, a fun way to get to know more about the people you call "Friends"--especially if you've never actually met them.

As a service to those of you who don't yet have a Facebook, the Solipsist has composed his very own questionnaire so that he can get to know you a little better, and so that Sloppists can get to know each other. Please answer the questions in the comments section. Thanks!

  7. Music is the Doors, blogs are philosophy blogs and solipsism, my nickname is Sant Antonio, my greatest sexual experience was with a blonde-haired harlot in a public toilet very near a pub in Salisbury South Australia, I'd go with biodegradable plastic shopping bags, my favourite actor's Arnold Schwarzeneggar, Bill Murray, and Gene Wilder & Al Pacino, and my favourite actress has always been, is always and always will be Whoopi Goldberg. :)
