What is your favorite tv show?
Congratulations! I joined in November and am at 71. Hoping to hit 100 soonish. Who do you support for president?
Thanks! I don't specifically support anyone but I'd be happy with Austin Petersen or John Kasich.
Congrats on the 100! What was your motivation for getting into SOH?
Idk I think I noticed it in the App Store once and gave it a try.
You're very gifted for being a 15 year old. Where did you get the passion I see in your debates?
Thank you! Not sure where I get my passion from lol...I love to read and I enjoy debating. I also am genuinely interested in hearing the other person's opinion.
How old are you and what are your 5 favorite fiction books?
Les Miserables, East of Eden, Daniel Deronda, 42nd Parallel, Spy who Came in From the Cold.
That's some heavy reading for a 15yr old! I'm impressed!

What brand of cereal do you eat?
Fiber one and Cheerios.
Favorite media source? Why?
Fivethirtyeight- statistics and analysis. I also like the Atlantic and Politico because even though they're left leaning, they're informative and generally not too biased.
You come across as a Libertarian. Who do you support from the Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian party for president, and what is your favorite form of economy?
Austin Petersen is awesome, but Gary Johnson is smarter.
John Kasich is the only sane Republican.
Democrats don't give me much choice. If I can choose one who dropped out I'll go with O'Malley.
I'm a libertarian who believes in a social safety net.
What was your most recent embarrassing moment?
Hm...not sure. Thankfully I haven't had too many embarrassing moments.
A few weeks ago my friend and I were doing something for school that was meant to be a secret. I have another friend with the same name. So I was texting the wrong friend for a while "are you doing the brochure? Did it print correctly?" until I realized.
Why the 'z'?
And congrats. I'm pleased to be an early follower.
It's a nickname, something my cousin started a few years back. And thanks!
Who are your 5 favorite bands from the 2nd wave Norwegian black metal scene?
I listen to classical or country music.
Who are your 5 favorite classical composers?
Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Satie, Debussy.
Rank each era of classical music in the order of your preference
Some country I like. There is one song "Redneck Woman" by Wilson. I don't know what it is about that song but it energizes me. Do you have a song that makes you energetic enough to do .... Housework.....hehe😀
I'm not that good!
Lol those are all composers I play on piano (or try to play.) I can't tell you when they lived.
What is your favorite Beethoven Symphony?
Not sure...I usually have it on as background so I don't know what's what. But I play Moonlight Sonata which is one of my all time favorite songs.
That is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever created.
I cry every time I play it.

That sounds great!
What's your main non professional interest or hobby?
Reading, piano playing, and brewing coffee.

None really. I'm libertarian on a lot of issues, but I can also agree with liberals occasionally.
What is 1.892 billion divided by Pi?
An irrational number.
According to Google, it's 602242304.66.
Idk. I just like big numbers. And equations
Why do we need math when we have Google? It makes no sense!
A bit of basic math is useful, if only to realize if you're being shortchanged at a shop without having to ask Google.
Pretty soon your smart watch will tell you automatically.
Math is a way of thinking, not just the operations by themselves.
