Ketchup flavoured chips are great. It's the fancy new flavours that make me raise an eyebrow... "Montreal smoked meat" or "grilled cheese" flavours.

What was the best business decision you have ever made?

^Great question! And no, because I would probably get hacked, or contract a virus.

?: If you could have a language translator implanted in your dog's vocal chords, would you, or would you be afraid of what he or she had to say about you?

Painted latex over oil.

Best band you've ever seen perform live?

Best live band performance? That's hard to choose, as I've been fortunate to have seen many top quality acts. I'd say either the acoustic guitar trio of Jon McLaughlin, Paco de Lucia, and Al Dimeola back in 1980, or Jeff Beck, or Frank Zappa, or Rush (7 times), or the Buddy Rich Big Band (back in 1976).

Sorry, I couldn't pick just one.

Would you consider having a microchip implanted somewhere in your body as a technological advancement or as a willing acceptance of the "mark of the beast?"

I don't know that I'd consider it a "mark of the beast", but I'd damn sure never willingly let it be done to me. I'm already starting to pull back from hi-tech stuff. I'm canceling the cable TV in favor of an antenna and may go back to the old flip phone when this iphone craps out (again). At the rate we're going, doing business and socializing in person may have to be taught in school soon.

As for best live performance, I saw James Taylor live on two occasions and being a huge JT fan, that would be my #1. The Eagles and Loggins&Messina would be next in line.

Who would you say is the world's greatest guitarist? (After Eric Clapton of course)

Hendrix. Wish I could of seen him live, I hear it's no comparison to recordings.

If you had the necessary skills and could paint any building in the world, which one would it be?

Hendrix is a legend, no doubt. Even Chet Atkins had praise for Hendrix and they were generations apart in age and music.

As to the question......paint!? Really? You wanna talk about painting a building?
PRC, this the off topic forum. It's like recess in elementary school! We can talk about the girls we'd like to hold hands with and sh!t like that.

And speaking of school, is there anyone here under the age of 30 that knows "could've" instead of "could of"? "Could've" is a contraction of "could have".

What are they teaching in school these days?

A casino in Vegas. Be cool to trick some stuff out and i would love to outrig the exterior. Always wanted to do a water tower for that reason. Big booms are getting too tame.

Whats the biggest project you have ever tackled paint wise?

Self-employed I've only done residential and light commercial. Back in the day of working for a commercial/industrial paint contractor, I did stage work on 20+ story buildings, painted steel on an electricity generation station. The tallest I ever did was climb a microwave tower to change the light bulb in the aircraft warning light. 305'

But that was over 30 years ago and innovations in equipment have changed the game a lot, I would think.

Oops, forgot to ask a question.

Para, aren't you about 42 or 43 now? I remember your birthday poem when you wanted to get into the OPPU after you turned 40.

Someone who empowers you to be the person they need you to be.

What is the fondest memory you have of a deceased loved one?

Having to carry Great uncle Allan's shoes down from the still when I was 5. I was too small to help carry him.

Blended or single malt?

Al Lindner. He found a way to take is passion for fishing and make a career out of it and has taught more people about fishing than anyone else. And has managed to blend his faith with it as well.

Have you ever seen a UFO?
