09-09-2015 Journal–More Personal Questions!   Leave a comment

th
A short time ago I posted ten questions created to assist a person in examining their own motivations and ethics when confronted with difficult problems.  I was surprised by some of  the responses and even more so by the numerous requests for additional questions.  Never let it be said I don’t respond to my readers.

Here are ten more puzzlers to get you thinking along with my own answers.

1.   Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by five years to become extremely attractive?

a.  No, I’d prefer to have the women I know become more attractive. Then I’d give up the five years without hesitation.

2.   Have you ever considered suicide? If yes, what is so important to you that without it life would not be worth living?

a. Yes, my eyesight.

3.   If your friends and acquaintances were willing to bluntly and honestly tell you what they really thought of you, would you want them to?

a. Sure why not.  For the most part I know my faults but maybe I’d find out about one I wasn’t aware of. Either way I don’t really care.

4.   Do you believe in capital punishment?  Would you be willing to execute a man sentenced to death by the courts if you were selected by lot to do so and he would go free if you refused? Assume you know no details of the trial.

a. I do believe in capital punishment and I would execute a criminal who had been properly convicted through the courts. The alternative of freeing him is not an option.

5   If you went to a beach and it turned out to be a nude beach, would you stay and go swimming? Would you swim nude?

a.  Yes and Yes.

6.   Do you find it so hard to say “no” that you regularly do favors you do not want to do? If so, why?

a. No I find it pretty easy to say no.

7.   Would you like to know the precise date of your death?

a. No.

8.   If by getting a 2 inch by 2 inch tattoo, you could save five lives and prevent a terrorist attack, would you do so? If you were allowed to select the location and design, where would you have it placed and what would the design be?

a. Yes I‘d get the tattoo.  A red crescent on my butt.

9.   On an airplane you are talking pleasantly to a stranger of average appearance. Unexpectedly, the person offers you $10,000.00 for one night of sex. Knowing that there is no danger and that payment is certain, would you accept the offer?

a. Of course . . . If the person were really attractive I might do it for $5,000.00. LOL

10.  Would you be willing to commit perjury for a friend? For example, might you testify that he was driving carefully when he hit a pedestrian even though he had been joking around and not paying attention.

a. No, he’s on his own.

Well there you have it.  Ten more questions to make you wonder about yourself and your significant other (assuming they are answering them with you).  Enjoy.
