I think you need to explain the "cringeing" word... It's not in my dictionary....

To cringe... hmm, google doesn't do very well. hang on.,..

This seems to be an ex-dictionary useage.

To say something is cringeworthy is to say that it's so obviously bad you feel embarrassed for the person responsible for it. That's as close as I can think.

OK! I see what you mean.
But still...
I think we need to ask people WHY they like the book...
My guess is that it's not because of the literary qualities, but the constant riddle/code solving in the book that appealed to their "notpr0n-personalities" :)

That was the reason for me anyway...

Good night!

Good night. Maybe one day I'll make an attempt to read it and *gulp* ignore the ludicrous writing. There are just so many other books out there, it didn't strike me as worth my time.

Ok guess I will add my two cents to this survey. :)

How would you describe your personality?
Easy going for the most part, but I do have some shy traits about me also

What interests have you got (beside notpr0n of course)?
I do a fair amount of reading, as well as out door activites (mostly thoise in the extreme nature). I also do enjoy serving my community (Fire Dept, and law enforcement - both part time) Plus my biggest interest is my career - Emergency Medicine and more specifically Airemedical Transport.

What do you like to do on vacation and leisure time?
Mostly spend time with my family, but also I enjoy traveling, and sight seeing, with a little time for golfing thrown in from time to time also. :)

Do you like to watch sports?
Yes, American football and soccer, and college basketball

Do you like Video or Computer games? What kind of games?

I play some not all that much though. I play mostly Splinter Cell, Medal of Honor, Halo, and Grand Theft Auto, Also enjoy Flight Simulator

Do you like to read? What kind of books?
I think I answered this already ;) but any way, I enjoy anyting by Hemmingway, The Art of war, The Cell by John Miller, also several more classics outside Hemmingway. Can't find myself interested in the Harry Ptter collection though and I have read the Da Vinci Code, just wouldn't call it a favorite.

What kind of movies do you like?
I actually don't find myself watching many movies, but I do enjoy an adventure from time to time. I have enjoyed The Day After Tomorrow, K2, Vertical Limit, as well as any American Firefighter atleast - Ladder 49, and BackDraft.

What kind of music?
This is an easy one....I will listen to anything that has a beat and rhythem....:)

I am currently 20 years old. I live in upper NY. I work for an engineering firm, I spend about "2" hours on not pron every day. I enjoy gaming. I guess I have never been really good at puzzles. but I have always finished them. althoguh this one is proving a challenge. I hope that I am not still working on it whewn an atom bomb is set to stirike my hometown, because I will continue working on it. I am not going to college. I enjoy reading mostly sci fi I am shy, I saw that as a common theme among us not proners. I have traveled a little buit, but never off this continent. I used to live in WA and did a lot of bike riding. here, I have started some kayaking (whitewater) but not terribly active anymore. I have a dog too. he likes long walks/jogs. and I guess thats about it.

as you can see by my extra posts, i am unorganized, I do not like watching sports, I enjoy some outdoors stuff as mentioned above, I liked Dan Brown as a writer, I am trying to read all of his books, I have little time, because I am trying to figure out not pron perhaps? hehe. I thouroghly enjoyed both davinci and angels and demons.

vacations are reserved for skiing, hiking, kayaking, biking, and sleeping, ooh and reading lots

kinds of computer games. hrmm I guess mostly FPS like splinter cell chaos theory. but I also play other "filler" games until the next "splinter cell" comes out. I also like war games like battlefield, I am currently playing KOTOR II, I beat it in a week and a half, same with splinter cell chaos theory. I spend most of my money on my computer, but the rest goes into my horrible car, and my bike. I am saving for a new car currently that way it should stop consuming my monies so I can spend more of my paycheck on computer [H]ardware. thats a bit more of an update I think I would have taken less time if I had copied the questions. heheheheheheeh
