@Captain Pre-Capsize

I’m definitely in. Doubt I have the “right” answers though.

I'm not in, as much as I love pottery.

I'm ADHD, so I will play along anyway.

I would not win anyway, since I played Intellivision...

Cats beat out dogs because they kill rats in my woodshed. At least, I don't see any rats.

I always preferred Roger Moore. I think I remember him walking out of an ocean in a drip dry Tuxedo...

I forgot the rest of the questions. So I'll just answer random ones.

I also liked Capt Janeway, but I have to go with Jean Luc.

I think Chris Rock will have a longer career than Jim Carrey now.

The 60's were only good after the Stones and the Beatles visited America, so they were cheated out of half of the decade, so I'm forced to pick the 70's, obviously. All the good ones in the 60's overdosed before they hit the 70's.

I also like cats because they sucker us into liking them even though they are very self centered. But they are also low maintenance. And they are basically replaceable. Especially on a farm.

I prefer the company of women over men, basically because they usually smell better than men.

My favorite color is Green.

I truly don't understand angles in shaving. Steep and shallow I only really get if I'm riding my bike up a hill. Too steep, I have to get off and push the bike. I can't see how that translates to shaving. Steep or shallow in relation to WHAT? I mean, I'm not LITERALLY riding the cap....this right here is why I need you, @Owen Bawn ! You act like you understand this sh..stuff!

Alan Trammell should have told the Baseball Hall of Steroids to kiss his ugly stepsister before he joined without Lou Whitaker. Grow a part Dude! You are now an old man and half the reason you are in the Hall is NOT in the Hall. You oughta be ashamed.

What else? That's enough for now.

Church! I forgot church!

It's kinda funny the "Kirk" is church in Scotland, I think. But I'm sticking with Capt Picard for at least tonight.

As for attire in church: Who are you dressing up for? Or Who are you trying to POSSIBLY irritate by dressing down?

If it's a KJV ONLY type Kirk, then cover up as much of your body as possible. Men take off yer hat in the lobby and wimmen folks keep their hats on their heads.

Casual don't mean dirty, so if ya got access to water, wash your body the night before or the morning of church. At least wash your hands and face and wear the cleanest dirty shirt you can find.

As God reminded Samuel, "man looks at the outward appearance, God looks upon the heart."

But definitely, GO to church. If for no other reason than to see clean, dressed up women.....might be the highlight of your week.
 
This is an excellent PIF, @borwish, and that is a beautiful shaving bow! Respectfully, not in.

However, I do love a good quiz!!

Respectfully not in (as I just benefited from @Captain Pre-Capsize's one-of-a-kind sale and managed to snag a beautiful new lather bowl! 🙂

But I do want to play!

I’m in!
1A) Name the best movie trilogy.
This would've been the Indiana Jones trilogy, but then Lucas made Indy 4 (The Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls). Instead, I vote for the Back to the Future trilogy!

1B) Name the worst movie trilogy.
Of what I've seen, Spider-Man (with Tobey Maguire). The first movie was good, the second was meh. The third was hot garbage.

2A) Name the best video game released on the Super Nintendo.
Street Fighter II (or Super Street Fighter II)

2B) Name the best video game released on the Playstation (first one).
I didn't have a PS1, but I got a PlayStation Classic. From that, I'd vote for Tekken 3 or Battle Arena Toshinden.

3) Which Star Trek captain was the best?
I didn't watch Star Trek. But I watched (and liked) the rebooted films. So I'll vote for Chris Pine.

4) Who was/is better? Jimmy Hendrix or David Gilmore?
Both were before my time, but I'm more familiar with Jimi, so I'll give him the nod.

5) Is Cilantro a pleasing addition for many dishes or a destroyer of meals?
Initially, I thought it tasted like soap. Now I can stand it, but I'd rather do without. I guess this means I vote for destroyer of meals.

6) Which animal is better? Dog or cat?
Dog (but a big one!). But I also have a soft spot for cats thanks to an ex-girlfriend's cat.

7) Which wood makes prettier furniture? Pine, Oak, or Cherry?
Cherry

8) Which decade (1900s) produced the the best music?
1940s (Big Band, jazz, swing, and a renaissance in classical music!)

9) Which actor was/is the best James Bond?
Sean Connery followed closely by Daniel Craig.

10) Must one dress up for Church, ie suit and tie, or is more casual, nice jeans and polo, acceptable?
Depends on the church's dress code. I prefer "come as you are" churches over the "dress up" churches. But to each his/her/their own. Then again, I highly doubt God cares all that much how people look when they're congregating to worship him.
 
NOT IN as I own a captains bowl, but also not in CONUS, but looks fun anyways…
