Would you rather know how you will die, or know when you will die?
Amilia, age 15
Some people who chose know how you will die had the following reasons:
So I know what's coming
I never want to have to wait and know when I am going to die
Then I could avoid whatever it is that causes my death
Because then you can change what you did to die so that you don't die that way :D
Because if I knew when I was going to die, I'd live the rest of my life knowing how close I am to dying, which would affect me mentally and physically.
If I knew when, I'd be paranoid until that day comes. I think too much, soooo...
If I know how I'm goign to die, be careful!
I don't wanna be pressured into knowing when I will die.
I actually would not like to know either. But in this case, I would rather know how because then I would not be counting my days.
Because if it is an early death, I don't want to know! I'd rather live my life to the fullest and not be sad of worry. Plus, there's always the chance you'll die in your sleep of old age!
Knowing when will make me stress more and more!
I woudln't want to know when because I'd constantly be looking at the clock and counting the days, and toward the end, I wouldn't be able to enjoy anything.
I don't care when I die; I just don't want to get shot or murdered by my BFF or even my sister or parents.
Because I think it's harmless to know how you'll die, but knowing when you'll die is scary...
That way I will be ready for my death.
I'm just a bit curious about it because it's more interesting.
Then I can be aware of it and stay away from that location!
I dont' want my life to be just a countdown. I'd rather be completely unaware of when I'll die.
Knowing when would just take the fun out of life. Knowing how could give you a chance to change it if it's painful.
Maybe I could avoid dying that way
Some people who chose know when you will die had
the following reasons:
Because I will know to get ready and say good-bye to family
Because there is no reason to worry about it now...
So I know how much time I will have left to live
So i'll know how much time I'll have left
To be prepared, lol!
If I know how I'm going to die, I won't be able to have fun because I'll be too paranoid just waiting and wondering which activity will lead to my death. If I know when I will die, I can prepare myself and make my last dreams come true (like a bucket list).
It provides the knowledge of how long you have to accomplish your bucket list so you can plan to do all of the things you would like to do.
I want to avoid my death happening.
So I can live my life to the fullest in the amount of time that I have.
Cause a few years before you will die, you can do all of the things on your bucket list.
Cuz then I will plan things to do before I die
So I won't be paranoid, and I can live my life my life to the fullest
I want to know how long I last, and if I don't last long, then I will have to do all the things I want to do.
So I know when it's my time
If you know you'll die by a certain something, then you always will be freaking out about it. Ergo, you think you'll die by plane, you can't visit another country!
If I know how, then I'll be depressed if it's something bad or painful.
It's not important how you die; it's about when you die that counts.
If I know when I'll die ahead of time, then at least I can try to live each day to the fullest.
That will give me a hint of how; if I die when I'm like 27, then I will probably die of drugs, drinking, car accident, or murder. But if I live to be like 80, then I would die of old age or old age problems.
You can at least prepare yourself for it. If you knew how, it's not great because it can happen any time, unless you die naturally.
Because then I have a tiem frame for what I want to accomplish before I die. If I know how I'll die, I'd probably just spend my whole life worrying how to stop it (which wouldn't be possible).
So I can prepare
Dude, seriously? Because of the fear of knowing the excruciating paint hat shall come forth to you!
So I can enjoy life while I have a little bit left.
Because if you knew how you would die, it would ruin the surprise.
Only then I am old
Because I would rather know when it was going to happen so I could live life to the fullest, not live scared of something that you don't know when it's going to happen :/
God says that we shouldn't know how or when something happens, but if I had to choose, it would be when so that I could live every day to the fullest instead of being paranoid of like a car crash that is supposed to kill me.
That way I can do everything I want before that sad but hopefully natural day.
If you know how, then you're always going to be paranoid when you're going to die. If you know when you're going to die, you can live your life without being worried.
So you can fit all the things you want to do.
Because that way you can prepare for it.
Because then you can get prepared.
Because if you know how you'll die, you will always be paranoid about things.
Would you rather be strong or graceful?
Cerberus, age 24
Some people who chose strong had the following reasons:
So I can beat the boys at arm wrestling
So I can fight off the boys
If I'm strong, falling shouldn't hurt as bad. Most graceful people are in demanding activities like ballet, but they can be graceful and still have weak bones. Injuries are not cool.
I want to get back up on my feet when someone pushes me down.
Strong gets you more place in life
Strong gives you more power
In my life, I have gone through many things, and I want to prevent them from happening again. Besides, I am not such a girly-girl.
So I can be strong in all types
For gymnastics you have to be both, but strength overpowers gracefulness. You need tons of strength to vault and tumble, and everything you do is centered around how much strength you have.
Because I've always wanted to be strong.
Cause if anyone will bully me, I will just walk away.
I just want to be strong on the inside for myself and others.
To carry on in life stronger: physically and mentally!
I can rely only on myself.
Strength coincides with grace.
Strength is more useful, like for lifting heavy boxes.
So I can kick some... butt. Haha. I don't care about being some girly little graceful thing.
I don't want someone to come up to me and I am not prepared to put up a fight.
Cuz I wanna be a tough cookie!
I'm not very graceful already, so I'd choose strength
I am not much of a girly-girl
I would rather be strong because if you are strong, you can defeat anything.
But not too strong.
I am already graceful, but really weak! Muscles should do the trick!
You can beat people up
Some people who chose graceful had the following reasons:
Because I love dancing!
Being graceful is being strong
Strength isn't everything.
It's nice :)
Who cares about strength? :-P
Grace translates quite well into beauty.
So I'm not clumsy anymore
I like grace and strength
I'm gawky and weak -- graceful sounds better :P
Being strong is something that comes with work. So does gracefulness. But usually you're born with gracefulness or you're not.
Being strong doesn't really do anything for a girl.
It depends on what kind of "strong" you are talking about. I would rather be strong emotionally and mentally than be graceful, but if you mean strong physically... then I'd rather be graceful because body doesn't really matter if you know how to move well.
I'm a dancer; that's why.
Strength is great if you're a guy, but when you're a woman, you want to be described as "graceful" and "elegant." Let's put it this way: no one ever described Audrey Hepburn as "strong," haha!
I'm already strong. ;)
I am always graceful
It's more feminine...
I am nice...
I'm such a klutz.
To be more lady-like.
Because being strong is a boy thing!
Grace is much more beautiful, and I love being beautiful.
Being graceful sounds better.
Would you rather be a shark or a snake?
Nessa, age 14
Some people who chose be a shark had
the following reasons:
So I can eat my meat
I hate snakes
Because sharks are king of the ocean
Sharks can swim.
I love water!
They're cuter. Snakes are weird :P
I like swimming lol
More powerful and bigger
I absolutely love the ocean!
I get to see the ocean yay :D and I don't have to see some of the disturbing stuff I would eat ):
I love the water. I live in the water. Well, I'd like to. The water and air are my key elements.
If you see a snake, you kill it-- don't you?
I am terrified of snakes, and i am from near the beach, so I am already adapted to sharks.
'CAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT!
Like neither, buta t least shark doesn't have to live in desert!
So I can eat PEOPLE!
I'd like to live in the water :)
So I can eat my enemy mia's body (she is evil).
Snakes creep me out
I would be a shark because I like sharks better than snakes.
Swimming in the water.
Shark as you can swim all day long
I feel like a shark has all the "power". So does a lion!
Snakes have no arms or legs. Sharks are the king of the sea.
Because snakes are killed more than sharks I think.
Because I don't have to be afraid if someone is going to eat me.
Because you get to be practically the king of the sea, and people don't want to mess with you.
I hate snakes.
The people who chose be a snake had the following
Because I would rather be on land than in the ocean.
I don't kill that much? haha.
Snakes can be graceful and chic.
They are more powerful.
I hate eating people, but I still want them to die.
Because I am the year of the snake and they don't have such a messy dinner, unlike sharks.
Because snakes are graceful.
Some snakes are harmless and actually very pretty!
I am a land person.
Both are pretty gross, but at least a snake is kind of sexy... in a non-biblical sense!
Because I'm scared of the water
Not just any snake: a gardner snake because they do not hurt people.
A tricky one.
I wouldn't want to live underwater.
The smaller it is, the better.
Cuz you can poison people!
I may be small, but I pack a punch.
I wouldn't have to rip apart poor sea animals.
Would you rather drink someone else's spit or steal your best friend's crush?
Some people who chose drink someone else's spit had
the following reasons:
Too mean to steal someone else's crush
I wouldn't steal my BFF's crush!
If someone is truly your best friend, you would never hurt him/her. If he/she turns on you and eventually is not friends with you all of a sudden, it shows that two wrongs don't make a right and that you are the bigger person.
My best friend is someone I can rely on, not someone who I would want to hate me.
Stealing someone's crush is even more wrong than drinking spit.
I've "drank" someone's spit by kissing; no big deal.
As long as they don't have mono.
Because THAT is pure MEAN!
I'd do anything for my best friend.
I would never do that to my best friend.
Well, drinking someone's spit is essentially french kissing, right? Let's just hope they're good looking, haha.
I'm too grateful to have friends than to let them down.
I could never betray my best friend like that! I would rather get myself sick than have her lovesick!
Cuz I don't want to lose that BFF
If the spit was mixed in with another drink...
It wouldn't really hurt. I'd just have to put it in Coke.
We breathe in other people's spit and other even nastier things. I would not break my friend's heart.
I am loyal.
Cuz it will go down with a nice glass of wee
Because you don't go out with someone your mate likes... it's an unwritten rule!
I would never want to hurt my best friend like that.
I would never hurt my friend like that.
I could never do that to my BFF, but I would only drink spit if the person wasn't sick.
Some people who chose steal your best friend's crush had the
Because drinking someone else's spit is gross
Because it is so nasty to drink someone else's spit
It is gross to do the other thing! (No offense to friends out there.)
I'd give him back to her soon :D
I could easily give him back
Spit and you get sick; crush will just lose a friend and you will probably get back together.
Because it's gross
That boy doesn't deserve my best friend or any girl for that matter
Drinking someone else's spit is just plain dirty
Because I'm not drinking anyone else's spit
Drinking someone else's spit is SO gross. And it can make you sick. I'd really not want to steal my best friend's crush either, but if she was upset, I'd give him back. ;D
I'm sorry, but the other choice: gross! That was an unfortunate no-brainer for me.
Cuz that's just gross man!
I don't have any friends now :(
Because he likes me also.
How do you steal a crush? If they were actually dating it would be different, but if it's just a crush, it's not a big deal.
I don't want an STD from someone's spit.
Drinking someone's spit is just nasty and unthinkable.
Cuz it's grosssss
I would steal my best friend's crush because it's disgusting to drink someone's spit and it's just gross.
Ewww! Spit! I hate to choke or swallow my own spit!
My best friend will get over it. Spit can infect your body.
Drinking other people's spit is NASTY!
I always accidentally steal my best friend's crush anyway.
Drinking spit is disgusting.
She would understand.
Would you rather have all the make-up in the world or have all the jewelry in the world?
anonymous, age 12
Some people who chose have all the make-up in the world had the following reasons:
Because I love make-up :)
Make-up makes me feel good about myself.
Make-up is fun! I use it as an art rather than a cover-up.
I believe I do need some to hide... well... my face. I don't think I am pretty.
Neither, but I have to pick one.
I'd rather have a pretty face than be covered in bling; just a simple necklace does me fine. :)
So I can look goooooooodddddddd!
I don't wear that much jewelry.
I am not really a jewelry person!
Make-up makes you look better.
Some people who chose have all the jewelry in the world had the
So I would be rich.
I am not allowed to wear make-up yet.
So you can sell jewelry for money
It looks worse to wear too much make-up than to wear too much jewelry.
Jewelry is worth more :) yay! :D
I don't wear make-up. Besides, not all those products are my shade.
Natural beauty would show. If you're beautiful, you will always look it, no matter if you're at prom or working out. Make-up doesn't make someone pretty.
Then I could sell the jewelry and use the money for more worthy causes.
Cause you can sell it and get more money
Jewelry lasts longer and some of it is really expensive
So I can sell them to charity and keep the rest to myself
Jewelry expresses more than make-up, and make-up can kill you.
Because jewelry is beautiful, but not make-up.
I don't wear a lot of make-up :)
Make-up's bad for your skin, and you only need a select few cartridges to look good.
You can never have too much jewelry.
I would sell some of the jewelry and buy some make-up. Moderation is the key :)
Real jewelry is so expensive and looks pretty! Make-up is not that expensive. Plus, to me, jewelry is more important than make-up.
Make-up is not that important.
Jewelry is worth a lot more than jewel-toned eye shadow, right? There's no way I'd need all of the jewelry, so if I get bored with a necklace, I could just sell it and buy some gorgeous Chanel make-up and clothes with the cash!
Because I keep my make-up simple.
Don't know why?
Neither really. But out of those, jewelry because there are a lot of cute things out there.
Not allmake-up is what I consider my shade. Jewelry is worth way more.
Jewelry is more expensive.
I don't have one since birth.
With all the jewelry, you'd easily be the richest person in the world.
Because I don't need make-up.
Because I don't really like make-up.
Make-up makes you get wrinkles faster and plus I don't know how to put on make-up.
So I could sell it for money to help people and animals.
Because some people look better without make-up; if they put some jewelry on, they just might look even better!
Make-up covers your beauty!
Because jewelry can always be different and look interesting and is noticed. Make-up only needs a couple of main features.
Because jewelry lasts forever.
Because I don'tw ant to be one of those girls who wears too much make-up. Like seriously!
Make-up isn't that important, although I use a bit of it, and jewelry can be gorgeous!
