Ask Wonderduck (almost) Anything! The 2010 Edition

It's been a year and since I had a blast with it during the last go-round, I think it's time for the second installment of Ask Wonderduck (almost) Anything!

Here's how this thing works... you ask a question, and I'll answer it!  It's just that simple!  But wait, great news!  The best question (in my opinion) will get a full-length post devoted to the answer! 

As with the last time we did this, there are a few questions I won't answer: anything related to current politics or religion.  I started The Pond lo these many years ago in an attempt to get away from political or religious squabbles, and to this day I've pretty much managed to stay clear of those things.  There are plenty of people out there who write about those topics and do so in ways I couldn't even hope to approach, so go read them for answers to those questions.  If you DO ask me a question related to such topics, please expect to be mocked horribly.

But wait, there's even more!

If you ask a technical question, I'll do my best to answer it correctly, but use it at your own risk.  So if you ask, say, "how do I install a left-handed widget in my 2008 Dacia Sandero," the results are on your head, not mine.

With all that out of the way, Ask Wonderduck (almost) Anything!

UPDATE: Some music for you while you formulate your query.

1 What do you think the long term effects (if any) of the spread of Haruhiism will have on the voting patterns in the US and UK circa 2020?

2 If you could have any one anime character by your side during the zombie apocalypse, who would you pick?

3 Brickmuppet, as much as I'd enjoy a world where Haruhiism would have an effect on the elections (Imouto-chan for President?), I'm afraid that there will be no effects, long-term or otherwise.  Alas.

David, I've actually been thinking about this recently.  Assuming she actually liked me, I'd want Revy from Black Lagoon.  She'd be able to shoot the zeds off my back while I cowered in fear.  If it wouldn't be her, then Sousuke Sagara from FMP would be the call.  Heavily armed, a crack shot, and likely to be picked up by Mithril at the earliest opportunity?  Sign me up.

4 David, that one's easy. I want Son Goku. (If he  can't fight off the zombies, he can fly and carry me.)

5 DBZ Son Goku or the one from the original myth? (Tossup as to which one would win in a fight...)

6 What if any F! car & track (any era) would you like drive?

7 Oh y'all need to wake up. It's Motoko Kusanagi who'd keep you alive, bar none. All aspect combat expert, tactical & strategic planing all in one package. Plus she's everywhere via the web so on the spot backup is assured.

8 Avatar, I want the Son Goku who fought Cell.

Tony, I'd like to take the Fancar out onto The Green Hell.

10 Zombie apocalypse? Haruhi, of course. The trick isn't "hey, I want to survive the zombie apocalypse", it's "hey, I want someone to undo this zombie apocalypse!" Only one deity fits the bill.

11 Avatar: are you kidding? "Reset" is one of the worst tropes there is. Any number of anime characters could undo the apocalypse. The question is which one is going to encourage you to have the most fun before that happens. Or alternatively, pick you up out of the wreckage and haul you off to her home planet/dimension. Or, of course, simply annihilate all the zombies as inferior competition for your tasty brain. Of course, Haruhi-sama might well be a good choice on those terms, just not on the one you specified.

12 Yurie.  The zombie apocalypse would turn out to be just a misunderstanding and we'd all have tea together.

13 What is it that makes the Hidemari duckie so distinct?  The big eyes?  The open mouth?  Seems standard I've seen your flock - seems impossible that you don't have one like this.  But I'm hardly an expert in this field.

As for zombie apocalypse - I'd develop a taste for brains.

14 I think we have a winner in the contest... because it tickles me.  Congrats, Vauc!
