THOUGHT PROVOKING QUESTIONS

looking for something to do?

answer these fully.. that'll give ya something to do!

Thought Provoking Questions...

Answer them... it really puts insite into your life....
and.. I'm not doing a LJ cut.. cause I don't feel like it...




If a classmate asked you for the answer to a question during an exam while the teacher was not looking, what would you do?

I would not give it to him/her. Doing so would be unfair to the rest of the students in the class. As well as to myself if I got caught helping them.
I can all but guarantee you that anyone who would ask for an answer would not care so much if they were caught. Why should I be brought down too then?
Now, if they are looking at my paper and I don't see them, that is another story...


If someone's underwear was showing, would you tell them?

It would really depend on who it was... Although if mine was showing, I would hope tha they would tell me...
Eh, and to make a "guy comment" if it was a girl and it was a thong showing?
Regardless of who hey were... It'd be tough to say something and have it disappear :-D.


If the whole world were listening, what would you say?

First I would ask everyone to stop what they were doing. The world is so busy now with the technology and everything. No one is ever not working or busy.
Then I would tell everyone that they shoudl cherish your friends and family.
And to never take anyone who is in your life for granted. You never know if that person will be the one to save you from some sort of conflict in the future. If you are there for people in the way you want then to be there for you, then you will never have a problem in your life that you will not be able to get though. And if you treat everyone with as much respect as possible and never HATE (other than in extreme instances) then you ill have many friends. And be happy


If you could ask God any one question, what would it be?

Why?... Easy as that... just plain... Why?
Why does he allow people to hurt children on purpose?
Why does he take who he takes?
and why does he make life sifficult for wonderful people?
I did a funeral a couple months ago for a child.... He was 4 years old (barely). His mother had sent him to Florida to be with his father for the summer because they had joint custody.
He came home in a casket.
His father repeatedly molested him, sodomized him, he had cigarette burns all over his body, and broken bones and bruises all over.
Why did god let that man do that? And why is that sick fucker
sill alive? Why isn't it ok for another of gods people to allow that SICK FUCKER to feel what he made his son feel?

In November I took care of the victims of a triple fatality car accident.
The victims were a 22 year old mother, her 2 year old daughter. and the mothers friends 2 year old daughter.
If god needed them I am not against nor would I say anything about him taking them... But he did it in such a way that, no matter what I did, even after spending more than 8 hours on them, they would not be able to be seen by anyone.
What did the girls mom do to deserve this? She didn't just lose her daughter. She lost her best friend, a person she called a sister as well as her daughter and her daughters best friend.
Again, god, why?
A very dear and close friend to me is going through so much in her life right now. She has cancer. Why god? Why do you have to put someone so young through so much? You put her through enough allready.

I would not be satisfied with asking God just one question... There is too much I have seen in my lifetime (and I'm only 24) that would require an answer from me...


If you could be a bird, what would you choose to be?

An eagle, they are beautiful birds. Extremelly powerful, and look up upon by many.


If you could be a plant, what would you choose to be?

An Iris, just cause that is my favorite flower. And if not that, then a rose. A rose has so many meanings. And a rose can bring so much happiness.
That is what I would want to be. Think about it, a rose can mean love, friendship, good job, get well, and deepest sympathies (among many other things).


If you could be a superhero, which one would you be?

Honestly, I would pass up the chance. I am happy being myself. And even more happy with the help that I give on a daily basis and the feeling I get when I see the effects of that help.


If you could be an animal, what would you be?

A dog. Dogs are loyal, loving, and loved by everyone. And a friendly dog (which I would be) can bring smiles to even the saddest person.


If you could be another person for a day, who would you be?

If it had to be someone who I know, I would be my friend, Marissa. I have been her friend now for over 4 years, and from the start, she has intregued me. After knowing her better she has amazed me. She has been through so much in her life.. and is going through so much in her life right now and is still without a doubt in my mind the most amazing and wonderful person that I know. I would want to spend a day in her shoes just to see how she does it. And I would want her to spend a day doing whatever she wanted to do while I was in her shoes.

(ok.. gonna stop that question... tearing up...)


If you could be invisible for a day what would you do and why?

Just being invisible would not be enough. I would need super powers as well so that I could clone myself into 1000 beings and be by each and every one of my friends sides for a day. During tht day, doing something small to help them out and put a smile on their face. A friends smile is worth living in the pains of the world.


If you could change one thing about your spouse or significant other, what would it be?
I don't have one... But if I did, I would not change a thing...
Love is not finding someone who is perfect... or needs to be changed...
Love is loving an imperfect person perfectly.


If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Only one thing? My appearance. I do not like my appearance... However, my saying that leads me to believe that I would rather change my self confidence. I do not see myself as a great person. Many times, however, this is because I bring myself back down to a level of seeing that. I do not take compliments to heart for fear that, over time, I will think I am better than someone else and not be able to help them by being on their level. Perfect example would be this past couple weeks. I have been told I was amazing and wonderful too many times to count. BUT, I refuse to let all them sink in because if they do, I might think too highly of myself and make someone think I am not reachable if they needed to talk out a problem.


If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?

That there would be no disease killing people...
No
I take that back... If that was the case I would be out a job.
That there would be a minimum age that a person lived to regardless of lifestyle or health. Everyone would live to be 75. Those that were more healthy would life longer. And those who were in accidents would live shorter.
It would increase people's outlook on life. They would know that, no mater what they did, they would be promised 75 years on this earth.


If you could choose to live on a different planet, which one would you
choose?


Ummmm... Earth does me just fine.


If you could commit any crime and get away with it, what would you do?

Murder.. a lot of people...
Sounds bad, huh?
It's not... Remember that guy I talked about that did that to the kid?
Think about how many sick fucks you can think of that are out there. People who kill for fun.. Or who abuse a child in that way because they can.
I would murder every one of them in a different way. And each one would be painful and slow.
Call me a jerk or sick if you want. But, before you do? Try and put yourself in that mothers shoes. And tell me you wouldn't want to kill the sick bastard.


If you could date a celebrity, who would you choose?

Beverly Mitchell... (Lucy from 7th Heaven)
Why?
Cause she is... *drool* enough said :-D.


If you could have only one food for the rest of your life (assuming that this strange situation would not affect your health), which food would you choose?

Pizza, I could totally live off of Pizza Hut Pizza....


If you could meet any famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

I really don't know... So because I really don't know, we will answer this question with the same as above...
Beverly Mitchell cause.. well... (see above) LOL


If you could speak any other language (besides English) which language would you like to speak?

Thai, cause it sounds so interesting...
I know enough Japanese to not be able to put it as an answer here... So I would want to know Thai.


If you could take a vacation anywhere in the world for any length of time, where would you go?

Sapporo, Japan. I spent a year of my life there living with 5 different families. I have 5 mothers and 5 fathers there.. I have 8 brothers and 7 sisters. I have tons of friends.. And even more memories. I would go back there and not leave until I was bored of it... Which would never happen...


If you could travel back in time, where would you go?

There are many places I would go. I would go to my freshman year in college and not have givin up my virginity...
no
I take that back.. I'd go back further and have gone to the best school for my major and not worried about the $30,000 it was going to cost me and my family. Hd I gone there it would have changed my life forever.


If you discovered a new island, what would you name it and why?

Lough island... Just cause I can't come up with anything else, and it'd be a great honor to have something named after me.


If you found a suitcase full of $1,000,000, what would you do?

Contact a lawyer and an accountant. Then hire a builder and start work on my funeral home. 1,000,000 would be a very good down payment.


If you had 25-hour days (while everyone else continued to have 24-hour days), what would you do with the extra time?

Sleep, cause I don't get enough in a 24 hour day!!!


If you had one wish, what would it be?

I would wish for all my friends to be happy. But, that seems like such a selfish thing to do with some of the things going on in my life right now.
Them being happy would in turn make me happy.
However, if someone was to grant me a wish out of the blue, I would think it was a sign from god. And I would have them snap their fingers and Marissa would be 100% happy and all the pain of her past would be erased, as well as the people she has lost that were close to her being back in her life.


If you had the opportunity to be different, what would you change?

The thing that comes to mind when I read this question is... Why would I want to be differet?
I do so much good for so many people just the way I am... Why would I hope to be different?


If you had time machine, where would you go and why?

I would go forward 5-10 years and see who I was with, and if it was happy.
If I was happy and everything was perfect. I would find out who it was and search for that person... Just to start things off a little earlier :-D.


If you had to choose between a wonderful romantic relationship that would end after only a year, or a so-so relationship that would last your entire life, which one would you choose?

I would take the so-so relationship.
A relationship is what you make of it. The only reason it would be so-so would be because one person wasn't giving as much as the other. Adjustments can always be made. And not only that but, how many marriages are "wonderfully romantic" the WHOLE lifetime? All have their ups and downs....


If you had to choose, would you give up your sight or your hearing?

My hearing... A life spent in the dark would be lonely and depressing. Plus, there is always signlanguage and lip reading...


If you received lottery tickets as a gift at the office party, and you won $30,000.00, would you share the winnings with the person who bought you the ticket?

Honestly?
After taxes only getting 15,000?
Thats only like 4 months worth of work...
I wouldn't GIVE them any... I would treat them to dinner at a nice restaurant. But I have school loans that are more than that amount....


If you saw a robbery, would you report it?

My cell phone dials 911 pretty damn quick. I seem to be the person to see accidents and stuff, so I know the girls up there at the 911 center.. LOL


If you saw your zipper was down and people had noticed, what would you do?

Zip it up and laugh...


If you were a candy, what candy would you be?

Chocolate. It makes so many people happy when they are down (women). If I couldn't be the person I am, at least I could make them happy by way of eating me. (i know that didn't sound good... but live with it..)


If you were a monster, what monster would you be?

*shrugs* got me...


If you were a toy, what toy would you be?

A vibrator so that I could make people happy... err.. no, not this time...
I'd want to be a teddy bear... I love to cuddle and be cuddled, and what is the job of a teddy bear?


If you were abducted by aliens, would you tell anybody? Why or why not?


I wouldn't be abducted in the first place.. That only happens to the people who are CRAZY!


If you were asked to choose which time you would like to live in, which century would you choose?

the 21st century.
I used to laugh when my parents told me how easy us kids had it and stuff...
But I see it now myself... Only being 25!
Kids in high school today do not know how easy they have it. The internet really wasn't that big until 1993/94. I was never really online until the end of 1995. So all through school if I had to look something up, It meant a trip to the library, getting out a bunch of books, and SEARCHING for the info.
I couldn't just go to google and type in what I am looking for and find 1000's of pages and sources of information most of them written by people of my genneration anyways. Simply cause they knew how to do that kind of research.. LOL..


If you were asked to speak to a graduating class, what would you say?

Set your goals high so that you don't stop after reaching for them and you are always reaching higher..


If you were given a chance to go to the moon, would you go? Why or why not?

I would go just so I can be laying out some night with a girl looking at the moon and stars and be like.. yeah, I was there once.. LOL


If you were given a choice between being given great wisdom or great wealth, which would you choose?

Great wisdom. Cause with great wisdom I could create great wealth.
Although.. with great wealth I could spend lots of time in classes and create great wisdom. But it would take longer.?


If you were given an opportunity to be born again, in which country would you like to be born?

Here in the USA. I honestly do think it is the best country to be a citizen of. Maybe not the best to LIVE in... But the best to be a citizen of.


If you were given an opportunity to be born again, what kind of person would you choose to be?

I like myself the way I am. I would make myself more attractive in my own eyes. But that would be the only thing I would want to change..


If you were given one million dollars, what would you buy?

This question was kinda already asked... Groundbreaking would begin shortly thereafter on my funeral home.


If you were given the opportunity to be born again, how would you change how you lived?

The major thing in my life that I would have changed was not going to The Elliot School of International Affairs at The George Washington University.
I read that letter I got from them often "out of 10,000 applicants, you were one of the 10% selected"... And ALWAYS ask myself what in the WORLD I was thinking to not go there and follow those dreams.


If you were going to a deserted island and could only take three things with you, what would you take? Why?

1. A phone with a battery that never ran out so that I could keep in constant contact with family and friends.
2. A computer that always turned itself into the best of the best so that I could keep up on what was going on in the world.
3. Someone who compliments me in every way.. So that I could enjoy a life with a erson who I am capable of loving more than life itself....


If you were invited to have tea with the Queen of England, what would
say?


Thanks for having tea, Queen, why was I invited here again?


If you were the President, what problem or concern would you work on
first?


Most likely SSI and Medicare/Medicaid...
As it is the system is poorly run and, honestly, I am putting $1,000's of dollars into the system every year. And I am expecting to never see a penny of it. I honestly do believe that by the time I reach that age, they will have moved it to an older age.
And the fact that people come here from other countries, become citizens, and then send for their parents/families in those other countries. Those people come here, never work a day in their lives here, yet still get the benefits as if they had. I think this is MAJORLY wrong. And I would crack down on that as soon as I was sworn in.

Oh, and do away with the stupid party bickering. Every vote would be open to discussion in the respective states. And a vote would be offered for the general public. If they so choose to vote. And the representative that you elected would simply vote on what his people said. Not on what his party or capitol hill friends are voting.


If you were told that you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

First I would let everyone know what is going on and where I would be. I would hope that all my friends could be there with me so that I could hug each one of them and let them know jsut how important they were to me. I would then introduce them to my family and tell my family that these are the people in my life that have kept me going, and that I consider them family.
And hopefully just have a wonderful time with all them. In the last couple hours of my life though, I would hope I could spend it with my close relatives. All together, talking, and letting them all know how much I love them.
Then I would hope it was as easy as pulling a plug on life... Or a heart attack. I do not want to be in pain when I die.


If you woke up suddenly because your house was on fire, which three things would you save as you ran outside?

1. First I'd get dressed cause I was naked. I'd grab my cell phone (can't live without it)
2. I would yank the computer from where it sits, cause I have half my life stored on this hard drive.
3. Money so I could go and get cigarettes cause I would need them if I was gonna watch my house burn down.... :-(


If you worked for a store and you saw another employee steal something, would you tell the manager?

No. It's the stores problem... Now, if I was management? The employee would be confronted.. If they lied about it, I would fire them. If they didn't lie, I would give them a warning...


What kinds of problems would you have if you had to always tell the truth?

I would pretty much have the same problems I have now. I make it a point and try to ALWAYS tell the truth. I have lied in the past. But, there are times that there is no other choice. And don't even tell me that thats not true... Ask me, I'll show you a time....


If you were given the opportunity to mold your partner the way you wanted, how would you mold your partner?

Well.. mold makes it sound physically... Short, petite, height/weight porportionate, attractive...
But if this question is really asking about non-physical...
Sense of humor, understanding, able to listen, comforting, open, honest, loving, caring, loyal, and wonderful .

...oh.... and a nice smile and eyes :-D


If you were God, how would you transmit or let people know your message?


I would resign as soon as I found out I was god. I am not a Doctor because I do not want live peoples lives in my hands. There is no way I want all of humanity in my hands as well...


If you were walking through the forest and you suddenly saw a tiger, what
would you do?


deep question, deep question, then a question about a tiger? WTF... go the other direction and hope it dosen't maul me I guess....


If you were American/Chinese/Mexican, how would your life be different?


I am American. If I were Chinese, I would be living in China and speaking Chinese (I DO believe that is different...)! If I were Mexican, I would live in Mexico and speak Spanish... I think that question about answers itself....


If you had to choose between love and no money or money and no love for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

I would choose love and no money... As much as I love having money, it is nothing without love. And love can sustain happiness all by itself.

I get bored easily. When it becomes really long and my eyes are tired, I just scroll past it all. The first few were good though.
