    Greetings one and all. As you recall, last week I invited you to send over your questions to Mr @RealBigOleDummy. We heard from literally SEVERAL of you (thanks to those who sent their questions). Despite @Abe's moaning and best efforts to sabotage my questions - here are the answers you seek.

    A specific name and shame MUST be directed to long term members who ignored this opportunity (mainly N, F, K and S)!!!!!!! You know who you are.

    I give you...

    REALBIGOLE DUMMY!!!!

    PROLOGUE:
    Before I start answering the questions, a little about me. My name is Alan Scott Jones but my friends and family call me Scott. Male of Welsh and German ancestry. Most everything else will be addressed in the answers to the interview questions. So let's get started!

    1. How did you find the forum and what were your first impressions of it?

    I found the forums by way of a web search. Was looking for an answer to a question I had about the show. No I don't remember what it was. My first impression? To be entirely honest ..... so so. I was thought to be a sock puppet for someone and to be honest was quite put off by that and the constant suspicion I felt directed towards me. Also..... the entity know as Ant E was in rare form around that time and I considered him a troll of major proportions. I have since changed my mind on that. Both about the forum and Ant E.

    2. What's it like being one of the 3 B's?

    Hmmmmmmmmm, now I WONDER who asked this?

    Well, if there was one more of us we'd be like the 4 horsemen now wouldn't we? And just as deadly to our adversaries! As B # 3, I must say its an honor to be such a thorn in the side of certain non B members.

    3. Billy Salt was a bit like the poor mans Three B, wasn't he? He probably let your team down a bit.Or was it Bluey? Discuss.

    Well, Bluey was the very first to welcome me to the forums back in the long ago.He was also the first I sent a PM to which he answered with a surprise for me. I see his point now. Billy DID seem to drop off there didn't he?

    4. When and how did you become a Red Dwarf fan.

    Now here's where I may lose some of you. And it answer's another question farther down the list. I almost want to lie, but I swore I would be truthful. So, I first saw Red Dwarf on a PBS station about 1 or 2am the night before I saw the parole board. Yes, I was in prison at the time and could not sleep for being worried. It was a series 1 episode Balance of Power. I was a fan instantly and have remained one. Must have been 1989.

    5. What's your favorite red Dwarf episode and why?

    Now that's a toughie. My favorite episode is probably Queeg with Waiting for God a close second. Because I've probably watched Queeg , literally, a 100 times and it still makes me laugh as much as the first time I watched it. "Yeeeahhhhh, fight that flab"!
    [​IMG]

    6. What's your favorite Red Dwarf season and why?

    Another toughie. I'm going with season 3 because it is so freaking good. Backwards, Marooned, Bodyswap, Timeslides, The Last day. I mean 5 out of 6 OUTSTANDING episodes! Polymorph is ok too.

    7. If you have read them, what do you think of the Red Dwarf novels?

    I've read and own the First two, and love them! Chapter 3 of Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers NEEDS to be filmed!

    8. What was the deal with you and Strat? He's gone now apparently.

    Not sure exactly what you mean here but I'm an Atheist and not shy about saying it. I don't think he liked that.
    [​IMG]

    9. Are you @yoserian?

    !*&%&%$#^()&^@$@^ that slimy piece of username stealing, bottom dwelling hemorrhoid on a distended rectum! No. I've seldom been as mad as I was when I saw "him" using my username. Piece of *$^%@$^*^$
    [​IMG]
    10. Ya like jazziemon?

    Not ringing a bell. No disrespect intended.

    11. Have you ever lived near a cheese shop?

    No.

    12.Did you know it offends Ant E when I fall asleep?

    Well, I sure do now!

    13. Who on the forum would you most like to meet?
    Trick question! I'd actually like to meet almost all of you.

    14. What are you memories the forum member Simulant37?
    Truthfully I have very little if any memories of Simulant37.

    15. Don't you think its a bit ridiculous Seb wants to ban people tagging things?
    Well, sorta. I DO see his point as explained in a thread post, but if its used to bug HIM, then he has the power and the right. Imho. I really like the tag system and hope it stays ..... just don't tag HIM to the point that its annoying. He IS the Boss you know.

    16. Wotz ur favrit flava icecreem?
    Vanellerz

    17. Where were u wen u woz away from da forum?
    I went to the other forums I'm a member of when I wanted to chat/talk. I ghosted here off and on ...... kind of like a kid looking in a candy shop. I missed you guys and girls. :redface:

    18. Wotz ur opinion of ant eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and duz u fink he iz truble?
    Well, I said I would be truthful. I like Ant E actually, in fact I have a grudging respect for him. hehehehehe besides I like putting him in his place when its called for:eek:. No, I don't think he's trouble. Furthermore, I don't think the forum would be the same without him. An asset in other words.

    19. Long shorts or short longs?
    Short mediums

    20.What excites you in life?
    Not much anymore sadly. New computer hardware comes the closest I suppose.

    21.Will Bluey EVER mind his own business?
    Well, if he hasn't by now I don't see it happening anytime soon. So you might be out of luck.....

    22.Why Bender?

    :eek:How can you even ask that?!? Bender is by far and without a doubt the coolest robot ever. (sorry Kryton, but you're second) His attitude for one "Kiss My Shiny Metal A$$", plus he has a heart that he tries to keep hidden. I can relate to that.

    23.Complete the sentence... "each peach, pear plum............."
    ...has their place in the Sun".

    24.What is your opinion of Jason Cook?
    I don't know who that is, so no opinion.

    25.What is your opinion of Jason The Dragon?
    Again, I have no idea who this is. But dragons are cool.

    26.What is your opinion of people called Jason?
    Well, Jason of the Argonauts fame I approve of. Jason Voorhees is scary but does kill a bunch of snot nosed teens so I'm ambivalent about him.

    27.Is your name Jason?
    No,my name is Alan Scott Jones. But please call me Scott or RealBigOleDummy© indianacarnie will do also.

    28.If Jason Cook had a fight with Jason the dragon, who would win?
    I'd bet on the dragon!

    Twitter (occasionally)/AlanJones@indianacarnie

    Computers, Space exploration, PC games, Politics, Films especially Film Noir
    Star Trek:TNG

    31.Andrew Ellard as forum mod or Seb P as forum mod?

    32.How old are you?
    Lol, OLD , ANCIENT I just turned 61

    33.Do you have any grandchildren?
    Yes, I have the two most beautiful granddaughter's in the world! One's 17 and just got a free 4 year ride (ACADEMIC!) to the University of Minnesota. Japanese studies. The other is 10.

    34.Do you speak any other languages?
    Ein wenig Deutsch. wusste mehr, als ich es bei der Armee lebte

    Tratando de aprender español

    35.Favourite Sport?
    FOOTBALL! American Football I should maybe add.

    36.Favourite team in said sport?
    Denver Broncos! I was born and raised in Denver, been a fan since I was a little boy.

    37.Ever been to the UK?
    Yes, I was there in late 1978/early 79 for 8 or 9 weeks. The UK had a bunch of Transportation strikes going on and I went there , as a solider, to drive supplies to the US air base's. Was based around Folkestone but drove almost everywhere. I was TERRIFIED driving that truck on the wrong side of the road (to me) at first!! It was magnificent! Loved the UK and think TO THIS DAY that you have the prettiest women in the world. (Hey.... I'm a guy,I remember things like that!) Very nice people, helpful and friendly. If ONLY you could learn to speak English....... Now...... don't let all that go to your heads now!

    38.Would you rather know you were going to live forever or know when you were going to die?
    Well, I think living forever would end up getting pretty boring and I am getting nearer the end, so that. Wouldn't want to live forever anyway.

    39.Why did you have a Billy Salt tantrum combined with a Simulant style nervous breakdown and leave the forum?
    Good question! I have already mentioned that most if not all of you thought I was someone else for most of the time I was here earlier. That can get to a person actually (and I can be a bit vain :redface:, there's only ONE (R)BOD). The day I left I had just gotten a pretty bad personal medical diagnosis, had heard some very unsettling news about my only Child and came here to "get away". There was one person here, no names and I haven't seen them post in awhile either, who really seemed to have it in for me. Followed me from thread to thread trashing what I said, my opinions were stupid, I was really dumb etc. Well, they started in and I just had enough. Snapped, left and asked to be deleted. I'm pretty much ashamed of that, because 1. I am NOT a quitter and 2. I let that person "win". Let them beat me. In my defence, it was probably one of the worst days of my life BEFORE I came here looking for solace. Ultimately though, it was me who broke and I can't change that.
    [​IMG]
    40.What is your opinion on Tex Rimmer?
    I know he's fictional. But my LEAST favorite State is Texas, I hate it there and most of the people I've ever met from there. So that persona has 9 strikes against him from the get go with me. Sorry. No, no I'm not... Texas sucks and so do 99.999% of the people who live there :eek:! Yeah I said it.

    41.Remember that time you told off Harry. Tell us what you think of Harry.
    Well, first..... I'm not one to hold back my opinion on anything or anybody. If you say something to me, expect an answer because you'll get it. Same goes if you mention my family and friends. My understanding of Harry (then and now),my main "knowledge" of him was the harassment campaign he seemed to have been waging against Nikki. I like Nikki, then and now and I can only take so much before my blood hits 212 degrees. I guess that's 100 to you all. When it hits the boiling point I can't keep my fingers shut or my mouth. If you think I told him off in HERE, you should have heard the words coming out of my mouth!!! Anyway..... hopefully that's all in the past.

    42.Why did you return to the forum?

    A couple of months or so after I left I started to "ghost" a little, coming back to see the news, but stayed away from the forum part. Then gradually I peeked for a minute or two at a time to see if that one individual was still posting and didn't see them. Then last Sat. I guess it was, I thought Hey, I'll try to sign in and see if Seb had REALLY deleted my account. I know what password I had had here and when it didn't work I tried to sign back up as MY username BigOleDummy. When it said it was TAKEN I knew someone else had got it because of the password change. Lol, I'm surprised you all didn't hear me screaming and cussing from there! I came back because I love Red Dwarf and I really liked almost everybody here. And I must admit I was ready to be banned on day one. Either because I said I wouldn't be back and did come or because I would see whatever scum sucking dog breathed lily livered bottom dwelling low life had taken over my name. When informed of WHO did it I was even madder, I had better not ever meet yosarian. But, that's neither here nor there. I'm back and Thank you all for the welcome and nice treatment I've received since then.

    43.Would it shock you to learn Jason the Dragon is BACK on the forum? The mod don't care!
    NOTE THIS WAS ASKED PRIOR TO THE "WASN'T ME" THREAD!!!
    As I mentioned earlier I really can't place this person. If I knew him/her/it before then they meant so little to me that they flew right under my radar.

    44.Do you think Abe is really slow?

    Come on now! No.

    45.Donald Trump - yay or nay?
    Depends on what you're yaying and naying about. Yes = for impeachment and prison for selling our election process to his buddy Vlad, for lying, for being a Bigot and a white supremacist, for doing his best to take Health Care away from millions of Americans, for embarrassing my Country in front of the world, for being an idiot, for pushing us closer to a Nuclear war than we've been since the 60's (He's no JFK either, able to defuse the situation), for being a p***y grabber and being PROUD of it .... should I go on? Nay= finishing his term.

    46. NOTE QUESTION (about Danny again) REMOVED !!!

    47.How big are you?

    :lol: That depends.Physically I'm 5ft 8in (172cm) 147lbs.(66.6 Kg or 10.5 stone) But if you measure my "Dummyness" then..... its much bigger!

    48.Complete this sentence - "the three B's are..................."

    ..... the Duke's of Deliciousness and down to two it seems."

    49.They are finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aren't they?

    Heck no! THIS B , at least, is just getting started! So tremble in your boots and gaze upon the majesty that is the RealBigOleDummy©!!!!!

    50.What is WRONG with the forum in three words?

    Sock Puppet Jerks

    51.What is RIGHT with the forum in three words?

    Good Decent Members

    52.Does it surprise you that Neil Old, Feebee, SundayforSammy and kry10 couldn't be bothered to ask you any questions? Disappointing really not to mention lazy.

    I would not presume to be surprised by anything anymore. Yeah, I must admit that I had hoped everyone would have something to ask me. I mean..... c'mon now, this is ME the RealBigOleDummy© and you just can't get anymore interesting than that.................... :nod:

    53.Do you have a secret favourite member of the forum?

    Yes

    54.What's the time Mr Wolf?

    I have no idea who Mr. Wolf is, but the time as I write this is 11:40pm est/4:40am uk time.
    [​IMG]

    55.Have you ever been arrested?

    As mentioned earlier yes. Several times in fact. Twice for rioting back in the early 70's (anti-war protests). Three times for Marijuana possession. Once for the charge that put me in prison.

    56.Shut up.

    Okey Dokey, just as soon as I finish this. (But I won't be quiet for long, THIS dummy like to talk :nod:.

    57.What do you think of this statement? "The three B's card's are marked" error error error

    I think that statement is a pipe dream for someone. Wishful thinking... a Fantasy in other words.:thanks:

    58.What is your fondest memory?

    Looking into my daughters eyes when she was born. I was the first to hold her.

    59.What is your fondest FORUM memory?

    Well, that's kind of complicated, because it didn't really happen IN the forum. When I left and before Seb deleted my account, I got an e-mail notice of a PM from someone here saying "come back". I had already calmed down a bit and I must admit seeing that ..... touched me. You know who you are, Thank You.

    NOTE: Meeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    60.And finally - favourite cheese.

    Gouda , hands down.


    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME MR DUMMY.

    I now hand my gauntlet of power and knowledge over to........ oh, Abe. :roll:
    Well, if we are lucky, Neil Old will go next (who couldn't be bothered to ask any questions) or maybe the delayed one for @DivineVarod .
