  7. Do you like the person who sent this to you?  Yes.
  8. How old are you today?  I am 30.
  9. What is your favorite sport to watch?  Watch sports?  I thought that was called torcher, or cruel and unusual punishment, which is illegal in this country.  I do have one exception to this, if flying can be called a sport.  I thoroughly enjoy air-shows.  For an example, check out this blog.
