    If you can't answer a question that shows insight to your thought process or how quickly you can react to unexpected challenges, I would say you are far from being "the most qualified."

    Yeah, I'd disagree with 3/4ths of that. You'd prefer cookie cutter questions? Then what, tell them what you think they want to hear? If you're applying for a job and there's an interview process, you're (collective you, not you personally) not really in a position to say you're above corporate whoredom.

    From my pov, many of those dismissing the question as being stupid and irrelevant look more like an unsuccessful deflection from their lack of creative processing. If they can't play along in a fictitious thread, I don't have much faith they'd do better in real life.

    FAILS!!! 90% of you! F-A-I-L!

    your words, not mine. applying for jobs doesn't make you a "corporate whore" (gross), that's an attitude you choose to have when you lack a meaningful personal identity, and it's not exactly the same as playing along. you can tell yourself you're more creative than everybody else cuz you're more willing to whore out, but that's just not gonna be the truth.
    I was fine when I came, and fine when I left.

    My first thought was that it is already moving...so, regarding this proposed movement, I'd ask "relative to what?" I mean, it travels the entire distance around the sun each year, whilst doing a bunch of twirls...

    I just finished moving someone, so I would chip in to hire a moving company to do it. Fuck helping a mountain move. Probably trying to start a new religion or some such mischief. I'm not in for any of that noise.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    I would design and build a satellite to launch to unfold a giant mirror in orbit and focus the sun's awesome power on poor little Fuji.

    I suppose one could argue remove is a form of move.
