Out of a bus, I could roll to absorb shock etc. but if I jumped toward a truck I would probably miss...

Would you rather have a month long cold or a week long flu?

Week long flu. A) You get more sympathy and drugs, B) It only lasts a week. I can stand having a cold that just won't go.

Would you rather be male or female? Besides the obvious. Imagine you haven't been born yet, and your choosing your race, gender, species etc. On God's MMORPG. What would you be? Come on. Your a semi-real soul, just waiting to be born. Go on. Choose. You know you wanna be a girl. Homo. Just kidding!

I've always wanted to know what it is like to be a girl... I will if I get a second life, otherwise, just no. And only if I get a third life to decide which one is better.



Would you rather kill yourself or not post?

An eye. My left one. It's slightly better at seeing than my right one, but they both suck. Plus I'm naturally right eye dominant, so I would feel weird without it.

Also, missing a kidney would mean I can't get drunk, wouldn't it? Can't be having that.

Would you rather be able to stay up for ages, but not be able to function at 100%, or have to get lots of sleep for 4 hours of 200% awesome-ness?

You mean sleeping 20 hours a day in the second option? I think it depends on your definition of "not working at 100%". I think I'd rather be able not to sleep, though.

Would you rather always have a quick retort if you needed it or never needing one at all?

Multiple of five, it's just more logical, and easier to deal with.

I don't know any sort of programming but I'd rather live.

Would you rather live with no AC in the summer or no heating in the winter? I suppose most here would choose no AC considering where they live. I can do fine with no heaters...

No AC, I would be camping out in my bedroom (complete with tent and winter sleeping bag) if there wasn't any heat. Also, all my stuff would freeze over.

Would you rather die quietly in your sleep or in some sort of dramatic, dangerous way?

If we all had to go naked, we would freeze to death walking to class. So only for shower and bedroom.

I have no idea who Dubya is, but he can probably be made to die quickly enough (if he's a horrible dictator). I choose that.

I... don't understand... Do those mean I see the world as various meat or as various vegetables? Or that I can locate any meat or vegetable in existence? Anyway, I'm vegetarian, give me cucumbers or give me death.

Swim, although in either case I would need some sort of heat resistance.

Would you rather remember all of Wikipedia by heart (or some other huge trove of facts, suppose they are all true) OR be able to grasp any concept in less than one minute (so you can read physics, maths or philosophy books, for example, and not have to pause to understand anything - you already get it all)?
