I'm on my school computer, so they blocked the test. However, I took this test to find my alignment. I got neutral good.

Mine

True Neutral- A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

Not entirely sure what that means, seems to be more a load of random words shoved together to form long incoherent sentences.

I think it means I couldn't care less about most things and therefore do whatever seems right at the time but could be wrong.

^yes that sounds about right. 

I think it’s funny how all the alignments say “this is the best alignment you can be” and also say “this is a dangerous alignment.” Although iirc Chaotic Evil doesn’t claim to be the best alignment...

Right lads, this is a serious question and I may break up any relationship that I have with you depending on your answer. Bond is taken very seriously in my household.

 

Therefore:

Favourite Bond?

AND

Favourite theme?

Can't say for the best Bond but the best theme is definitely Live And Let Die , although the original definitely deserves an honorable mention.

Lads, what is wrong with ye? I demand you watch some Bond. 

 

Also, I knew I should have put a ban on Live or Let Die as an answer or make it allowed as an answer AS WELL as something else.

 

Anyway, the only correct answer to the theme is Carly Simon's 'Nobody Does It Better'. Any other answer is, I'm afraid, incorrect.

 

For the best Bond, my personal favourite is Roger Moore. Charming, funny, some of the best stunts in any Bond film and really attractive pre-face lift (why did you do it Roger? Why?!?!). While Connery's films are better, Moore is a better Bond.

Way to go when in doubt, ASJ; suggesting there's an obvious contender that's the only logical answer. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif You make a strong argument with the only problem being you have got the wrong theme. And sorry Paul, you were in the running, but...

As to my favourite Bond? I have the complete Bond DVD box set, and the films released since that came out, and being familiar with all eras makes the choice hard.

I'd probably go for Barry Nelson or David Niven, though Bob Holness would be up there if they could just find the tape...

I certainly can't use fiddy's age-excuse to explain away my own Bond ignorance! I've only seen about 5-6 on television years ago (a few Moores, "Diamonds are 4ever" and the disastrous original "Casino"), and always found the plots confusing, with the iInternational intrigue and shifting alliances etc. I really need to watch those classic Connerys - I'm interested in the changes to filmmaking styles over the period (1962-1970, hmmm), and can see how the Bond series largely anticipated today's Hollywood landscape - franchises built on huge production values, plots filled with huge life-or-death action setpieces, etc.

...and having thus conveyed my ignorance, I'll weigh in with my baseless answer and hope ASjr. doesn't break up with me.

Best Bond - Well, 1962-1971 was some kind of onceinalifetime era for the arts, so I'm gonna go with Sean Connery. But I've heard that modern day Bonds have cut back on the womanizing a bit, which I guess is good for society (maybe for filmmaking too...maybe)

Best Bond theme: Again, I only know a handful. But I'm gonna research this answer, listening to the helpful links...

https://www.esquire.com/entert.....gs-ranked/

...before giving it. CHECK THIS SPACE LATER! It won't be "LALD"; I think it's an average song with a great orchestration providing most of the excitement. Reggae bit is fun, though, and I guess appropriate. (Shirley and "Goldfnger" is my fave of the ones I know already)
