I saw this thing going around a little while back and thought: “Well that looks interesting- I’ll give it a try!” So here’s my answers all in one clump!
A. If you could get away with one murder in your lifetime without any legal, social, or emotional repercussions, would you kill someone?
I would, however, condone making the person suffer a fate worse than death if they truly deserved it.
For example, a man raping a small child: having his genitalia removed in the most painful way imaginable.
B. What is your first thought when you receive a message on Tumblr, are you excited for the idea of someone from potentially the other side of the world wanting to talk to you or fearful that someone will criticize you?
Actually I’m more likely to be worried or anxiety ridden. Past experiences on Deviant-Art and receiving VERY nasty notes have left me on guard and fidgety. Not that I don’t appreciate the kind words and little quips and queries (as long as they’re respectable and understanding of my personal space and privacy) you wonderful folk give me, I do! I just always have a reaction of shirking back.
C. Have you ever looked down on someone because you thought your religious views were superior?
I’m sure in the past my younger self has engaged in sickening conversations of superiority. But as for my present self:
Who am I to judge what you believe? Just so long as you don’t judge me for my ideals and thoughts, I’d say we’re peachy.
In fact- I find learning about various religions and their practices to be quite fascinating. I especially enjoy learning about how said religious ideals contribute to making the individual who they are.
D. Would you rather know everything the universe has to offer but in exchange lose all emotions or remain the way you are now?
Well- This is an odd question.
Technically, if you knew everything in the Universe you would also know emotions and thus contain such a higher understanding of them that they’d even exceed that which you have in your original state.you can’t extinguish emotion from an all knowing being- because emotion IS an understanding. It is a KNOWING.
Even still, I wouldn’t really want to obtain Omniscience, I like the Universe having questions I can still ask.
Now- if I could obtain Omnibenevolence along with such a skill, perhaps I’d reconsider.
E. If you could live and be healthy without sleeping or eating/drinking, which would you cut out of your life?
Eating. I don’t do much eating anyway, and sleeping is fucking awesome.
But this is an odd question.
Are you asking for another exchange? Or just to CHOOSE not to eat anymore?
F. If you could take on the exact body and form of anyone else on Earth, who would it be?
I’d like to keep my body as-is, but I’d like for the capability to remove unwanted organs. It’s not that I’m vain, or feel like I’m this lovely individual. But I’m me, I understand that I’m me- that the body I am in, though it has certain characteristics that are incorrect (and can and will be removed), is still mine. I wouldn’t feel right taking the body of another individual.
G. Would you rather burn or freeze to death?
I’d much prefer freezing.
But particularly in cold water, Hypothermia kicks in much quicker than if it were cold air, for one. This is due to heat being lost in water much more quickly, and thus it would happen at an exceedingly fast rate.
Plus, slipping into a state of numb sleepiness seems a lot less painful then having your NERVES BURNED OH GOD.
H. If it meant it would solve all world hunger, war, disease and bigotry, would you spend the rest of eternity in Hell?
What would suffering for all eternity do to stop all those things? Let’s be realistic here, sending one individual to eternal damnation isn’t going to make the entire human populace go “well now that so-and-so is gone let’s stop these aspects of culture we’ve possessed for thousands of years!” I’d like to say I’d be altruistic enough to do that for the good of humanity. But that’s an unrealistic expectation, as is this question.
So I suppose the simple answer is no- I suppose- Sorry!
Not that I want humanity to have these things, I just think that it really wouldn’t do any good, because if those aspects vanish then other ones will surface with consequence. The universe cannot exist without the bad- there’s an equality that’s ever present.
I. Was the first crush in your life something you had or something someone had on you?
Are you asking if I crushed on something before someone ever crushed on me (if said thing had ever happened.)?
Because if so, I suppose the answer is yes. I was around…. 4?
J. Could you live without having sex ever (again) in exchange for eternal youth?
Given that I am not attracted nor do I feel the desire for sexual intercourse I presume this would be an easy tradeoff.
K. Have you ever watched a full length pornographic movie?
No. Nor do I want to. That’s disgusting. Not that I judge what others choose to entertain themselves with- but for me personally the act of making love to another individual is something sacred and should be private.
This is just a personal opinion, though, and I’m quite aware a vast number of individuals disagree with me on this matter.
L. The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
The Rolling Stones, yo.
M. If you could have the ability to manipulate matter or energy, which would you choose?
Ah ok, so we’re going with the scientific proposition that they’re two different things?
I personally believe that the two are one in the same, That all matter is condensed into a slow vibration of said strings which are comprised of energy. So essentially I beleive in String theory- haha.
Guess the answer would be energy, then.
N. What was the worst nightmare you ever had?
I don’t remember and even if I did I wouldn’t make it public.
O. Would you rather spend one year with your one true love just to never see them again or the rest of your life with second best?
Neither, those are terrible options.
P. All the sequels/remakes/adaptations/rip-offs in movies nowadays, good or bad?
That’s an overly generalized statement.
Q. Would you rather be dirt poor and emotionally fulfilled in life or be rich beyond imagination and emotionally dissatisfied for life?
Emotionally fulfilled. Money doesn’t buy happiness and I’m not a materialistic individual.
R. Do you have any (secret) feelings of bigotry to any group of people?
Only to people who are bigots, actually. Which I, in-turn, hate about myself.
I have these little tirades in my head attacking myself for hating people who are bigoted towards any sort of individual. I suppose in a way it’s an ever present, continual loop of self hatred.
S. Would you rather be the only person in the world that can read minds or have everyone else in the world be able to read minds except for your own?
The former. It would be a very lonely existence being the only special-snowflake who couldn’t speak telepathically.
I’d much rather be able to read peoples minds but in a constructive and non-judgmental way. I’d try to use it to help them.
T. If everyone in the world would automatically only know one language, which language would you choose?
That sounds like a really boring world.
U. If you were old enough and not in a situation where it would be inappropriate, would you sleep with one of your (past) school teachers/professors?
V. A world without religion, good, bad, neutral?
I don’t know, I haven’t been too such a world and seen how it is run. I would imagine such a world would be a tad bit more chaotic considering that religion is not only the teaching of the origin of life, but morality and ethics to various cultures that have cultivated the seeds of humanity.
W. The men’s rights movement, legitimate cause or laughable, and why?
Everyone deserves equal rights. Whether they be Female, Male, or (such as myself) neither.
The instant that someone says that a ‘cause is not justifiable’ they’re being the oppressor.
Instead of having this whole back and forth of ‘well we’ve dealt with more’ or ‘well you wouldn’t understand.’ How about we all come together, see each other as individualistic and try to understand and accept the differences we all contain subjectively and neither hurt nor scorn the other as we do so.
X. You can eliminate one of your five senses to substantially strengthen the others, which one and would you do it?
Just because I can, doesn’t mean I will.
Y. Do looks mean anything to you? Don’t lie, could you fall in love with someone you thought was ugly?
I love only my beloveds appearance because it is his.
Z. Can you understand the mindset and logic used by the opposite spiritual opinion? An atheist understanding the belief in a higher power and vice versa.
