What are some things you can do today because of technology that you couldn't do five years ago?

I can...forget to eat breakfast at work with all the emails.
I can...pay less attention driving.
I can...go all day without having a face-to-face conversation.

Yay, technology.

Wait, what?

Do you think stem cell research is good, bad, or dangerous? Should it be funded by the government?

It's good, but we've been fighting for so long over embryonic stem cell research that we're missing some of the advances in adult stem cell research. We shouldn't lose sight of the fact that there are a lot of different stem cell options, and I'm afraid a lot of our research is going to be obsolete because we're wasting time over 1 option when there's a lot more than 1 option available.

What recently developed technology—cell phones, wi-fi, laptops, handheld gaming devices, etc.—do you think has had the worst influence on how people behave in public?

Cell phones. People spend so much time texting, they forget how to have real conversations face-to-face. It's like pulling teeth to get any decent dialogue these days.

If you could ask your pet any question (and they could answer you), what would it be?

I would ask my dog, "Why are you afraid of EVERYTHING?!?!"

You Are a Green Light

You take life at a fast pace. You act quickly and decisively.

You have good instincts and trust your gut. You're confident and brave.

You are determined and ambitious. You don't allow yourself to waste time.

It's no surprise that you get a lot done. You are efficient and productive.

You Are "ctrl"

Some people might try to say that you're too controlling.

And while there is a controlling aspect to your personalty, you like to think you're competent.

You are an expert in many fields. You tend to really know your stuff.

You tend to take the reins whenever it's needed. You like to lead, and people like to follow you.

There are a lot of things we see most often in December, like caroling, potato latkes, mistletoe, mulled wine, eggnog, and returning gifts. What's your favorite holiday tradition?

It's not Xmas at my house till we break out the Rotel and Velveeta!
