Please help me out with some questions I'm asking for a school project! Thanks!

Ok, I'm taking a survey for my global studies class and it would be great if you guys would help me out by answering a few questions about the R/C hobby:

1. How did you get started in R/C?
2. How long have you been flying R/C planes?
3. Do you prefer kits, ARFs, RTFs, or scratchbuilding?
4. Foam or balsa?
5. Deans or APPs?
6. What is your height?
7. What is your eye color?
8. What is your weight?
9. What is your social security number?
10. Do you prefer chicken noodle or tomato soup?
11. What time do you go to bed at night?
12. What is your paternal grandmother's maiden name?
13. How often do you fly inverted?
14. What is your preferred flying style?
15. If lithium batteries did not exist, what would you eat for breakfast?
16. What time of the day did you last wash your windows?
17. Coke or Pepsi?
18. Are more of your planes belly-landers, or do most have landing gear?
20. For power systems, do you favor outrunners or geared inrunners?
21. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immoveable object?
22. Ford or Chevy?
23. Did you notice I skipped number 19?
24. Do you prefer full or profile fuselages?
25. Do you have five bucks I can borrow?

I will only answer #10, because I like tomato soup so much. Others will rip me apart for my preferences but that is how I roll. Chicken noodle soup is watery 85 out of 100 times. That is a FACT.

I fault your poll for not asking about two-wheeled vehicles. Are you in favor of global warming?

In answer to #18, most start out as LG equipped, and end up as belly floppers.

In answer to #25, what's the collateral?

4. Foam or balsa? This question is woodist, it can only be used for the purposes of evil.

10. Do you prefer chicken noodle or tomato soup? This question is soupist, it can only be used for the purposes of evil.

21. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immoveable object? The end to capitalism.

I too am a 75 year old Samoan woman.

There seem to be a lot of elderly Samoan woman around here. Dirt is one, too, but he'll never admit it.

I would begin to disagree with your statement in its entirety but for some reason i cannot find true honest to god defintions on woodist, soupist, or what ever this capitalism is you speak of.

I'll just fly my packs to LVC or something. All of them. They'll probably be unbalanced at the start of the balancing charge cycle. And I'll have shorted the life of the packs somewhat. You'll see

I just let my dog use my old lipos that have dangerously over discharged as chew toys. He seems to like them.

Soupism - the belief that one soup is superior to another, based on ingredient content.

Woodism - the belief that wood is superior to other building materials based on tensile and compressive strengths.

Capitalism - the belief that one form of currency is superior to another, based on it's valuation versus the US dollar.
