The John Roberts Job Interview

The confirmation hearings of John Roberts, for Supreme Court Chief Justice, ridiculously have not resulted in any revealing or meaningful answers on how he might rule in future cases. Since this is basically a job interview, why not ask job interview questions that many of the rest of us have to go through these days?

Answers to these questions would probably tell us more about the man who will have the ability to mess with our live for years to come.

Here are a sample of interview questions I'd like to see put to him. I can only imagine his answers.
-Where do you see yourself in five years?

-If you could change your life, what would you do differently?

-What do you do on your free time?

-What's the most important part of the sandwich?

-If you are going to receive an award in 5 years, what is it for and who is the audience?

-If you look at a clock and the time is 3:15, what is the angle between the hour and the minute hands?

-If aliens landed in front of you and, in exchange for anything you desire, offered you any position on their planet, what would you want?

-If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be?

-If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?

-If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?

-If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

-If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs - such as food and water - were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?

-Do you believe in Leprechauns?

-Why is it that when you turn on the hot water in any hotel, for example, the hot water comes pouring out almost instantaneously?

-If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?

-If you could compare yourself with any animal, which would it be and why?

-If you were a type of food, what type of food would you be?

-If you were a salad, what kind of dressing would you have?

-If you were a car, what kind would you be?

-How are M&Ms made?

-You have been assigned to design the President bathroom. Naturally, cost is not a consideration. However you may not speak to the President. What would it look like?

-If you could gather all of the lawyers in the world together into one room and then tell them one thing that they would be compelled to do, what would it be?

-What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Here are the some of the sources of the questions above. Suggest what Roberts' answers might be in the comments.
