So…shortly after I got on Facebook I started answering questions on The 10 Second Interview app. It soon became clear that the 10 seconds did not refer to the time the entire interview took because there 500+ questions. But I liked the whimsical nature of the questions so I answered them 10 or so at a time and kept the box on my page (they’ve since done away with pages). It took a while but eventually I answered all of the questions, and I thought it might be mildly amusing to look back at them. I’ll put up about 50 answers at a time, so this will be the first in a series.
Most of my answers are attempts at humor, but not all of them. Also remember that I was answering them in 2008, so some of the answers might be topical. I’ve provided links where they might be helpful. Please to enjoy:
