Ask a rocking Scorpion random questions..

I tried this on another board with very little success (that might have to do with the around 7000 members over there where a thread like this simply drowns) and I want to give it a shot here, too.

So throw those questions at me. Or not. :D

Oh, and btw:
I did this in my other askthread, so I'm doing it here, too:



Add this to your faves if you're on deviantart and you'll get a llama badge. :D

(I did that one in Paint in under 10 minutes and then made a vector out of it. Because why the hell not.)

Oh, and...
Have fun. :D

Yay, my first question. :D

...and it happens to be a hard one. xD

So, let me see. I never went on any rollercoasters outside of Germany. And I don't exactly have a "most awesome", because everyone has it's Ups and Downs. No pun intended. xD

I can mention 3 coasters: The first one would be this one: click!
Silverstar, Europapark Rust. It is the highest, but not fastest coaster in Europe. But even with the height of 70 meters and 130 km/h it isn't that intense. The first drop is cool, but the rest is relaxed gliding above very smooth hills. Best experience - go last row, and hands up in the air. :D

Now to this one: click!
Blue Fire, same amusement park, and also not THIS intense, except for the last element where you're hanging with your full weight in the bars. And no shoulder bars, only lap. That is always cool for loops and stuff.

Third one (a rather new one) is this one:
click!
Karacho, Tripsdrill Germany.
This one is somewhat intense. A vertical drop element and a great finale. But I hope they finally finished the scenery. I want to take some nice photos there tomorrow. xD

Oh, and Black Mamba, Phantasialand Br¸hl, Cologne is great, too. The only inverted coaster we have in Germany. And a great scenery. click

The only one of them I have had the pleasure to ride is the Black Mamba. I remember it was pretty awesome :p They all look cool though. Maybe I'll get a chance to ride them one day, who knows :)

And you're welcome :p

Ooh, a question in here. I really wasn't expecting it anymore. :D

Sooo...
I like some animals, but a true favourite for about ever and forever (I have a map back from kindergarden somewhere and it's full of drawings of this animal xD ) is the dolphin.

I've already seen some while swimming in the Red Sea, but they were gone pretty fast. I hope I'll have a close encounter with them one day. :D

Favourite LBT Character? Oh...well...

Littlecerducktrispikalifoot? Does that count? xD
(This may be the name for the most complicated shipping ever xD)

I can't really decide, they're all great. As a kid I would've said Littlefoot, because I loved sauropods back then.

Movies...that one is simple, the first one. 4, 7 and 10 are good as well.
Episodes...let me see, I haven't watched them all, still at it. ;)
From the episodes I've seen so far, it's 6. I liked 1, 3 and 11, too.

Hm...mhm...

Again I can't pick so have three series I like. xD

1: Eragon
2: Harry Potter

These two are quite well known, so I don't think I need to explain much. The third one though...

It's a series of three books written by Isabel Allende. The books are named:
City of the Beasts
Kingdom of the Golden Dragon
Forest of the Pygmies

(gosh dang the last one came out 2005...I remember it like it was yesterday..xD)
Basically the series begins with Alexander Cold who is facing some tough situations lately and has to live with his crazy grandma who works for a quite popular magazine.
With her, he get's around the world and collects many different experiences he would've never made otherwise.

Yes, these books are fantasy alright, but they still stick to things that people living in this world really believe in and while really spectacular stuff happens in them you never think that the author went way over the top now.

...I suddenly feel like reading them again soon. xD
But let me finish my Eragon Marathon before. I'm a reading maniac, which can be almost a curse sometimes when after a book ends you read "to be continued". I once read all 4 Eragon books during one month. Don't ask me how. It just happened. xD

Why do you call yourself RockingScorpion?

*pictures a scorpion playing an electric guitar, a scorpion sitting in a rocking chair, and a scorpion obsessed with geology as three potential personifications* :lol

Whatever the reason, it's a pretty cool name. :)



Pronounced "pan-JEE-uh". Spelled with three A's. Represented by a Lystrosaurus.

Quite simple. I'm a fan of the Scorpions, and they play rock music. That's it. xD
I never was any good at finding creative names, and this one is no exception, but I kinda like it more than some other nicknames I use.^^

Oh, and by the way: This. :D

^ Awesome.  I love the Scorpions as well.

I guess that I need to ask this, considering my username: what is your favorite shape? :smile   I assume that you can guess mine.  :p

Have you ever seen them live as well? :D

Your favourite shape...mhm...the octagon. I'm 100% sure it's that. :D

My favourite one..is the circle. Why?
If you're drawing with a certain perspektive, a circle is always the easiest thing to get right. If it's a sphere you can't even make a mistake. Just draw a perfect circle, add some shadings and done. :D
Spheres always look the same, no matter the direction you're looking it them.

So basically...I like the circle because I'm lazy. Wow. xD

Unfortunately, I have not had that opportunity.  You can rest assured that if they tour within a few hundred miles of my home that I will be there.  :yes Their last album, "Sting in the Tail" was originally going to be the basis of their final tour, but they have since decided to continue playing.  I hope that they continue to play at least long enough for me to get a chance to see them perform live.

Since I just recently went through it again, the first Jurassic Park book. It has a lot more depth in almost all cases compared to the movie.

What artwork of yours are you most satisfied with (fanart and photography alike)? :)
hmm, a signature? I'll think of something.
