There's quite a gap in question 3. Either my country is the bestest evar and perfect in every way, or no country is any good and they all suck. :D

I'm Greg Benford, who apparenlty took the test and is Arthur C. Clarke.

I wouldn't mind a download from either of their brains.

-The good old U.S. of A. is the model toward which all other nations should strive.
- The same, for some other country instead of the States.
- Patriotism is foolish... but I suppose I'm rather parochial.
- I'm a total internationalist and I travel all over.

I read it that you can like your own country myopically, or like them them all or think the whole thing is a crock of whatsit.

I like my country fine... I just don't want to live there right now... and I've lived in three other countries so I get to be an internationalist.

A horror writer friend told me he only came to Clarion because he wanted to decide whose brains were worth eating to attain their knowledge. I was most disappointed that he had planned to let me live. SoooOOooo, you reckon Clarke and Benford would make a good meal, eh?

Stanislav Lem at your service. (Now I officially like the test. ;) )

Issac Asimov.

I am Ursula K. LeGuin (go figure)

but if I take the test tomorrow I might be someone else. I've always had the ability to figure out personality tests, so I often cheat.

I'm going back to take the house paint test.:)

Funny I haven't read any of his books but I have one at home. Maybe it's a sign...

It said I'm
Hal Clement (Harry C. Stubbs)
Never heard of him, a little before my time, I guess. It said in the 40's he predicted intergerated circuits.
