Would you rather...
« on: January 14, 2013, 11:54:13 PM »
I haven't seen one of these threads before.

SO...

This is how it is...

I start off with a 'would you rather' question, then you have to answer it, and then you come up with another one, and the person after you has to answer it.



Would you rather have a talking hand that occasionally says something VERY rude to the opposite sex whenever someone of the opposite sex is present or change genders every time you sneeze.

Your talking hand has the exact same voice as you and you can't tell anyone that it's the talking hand saying it

I choose this one. I'll carry around a canister of pepper for an insta-change-back.

I'd rather lose my eyebrows than my hearing, that seems logical, however attached to them one might be  :-\   ;D

Would you rather wear glasses the rest of your life, seeing clearly, or do a daily eye exercise program that takes 1 year for clarity. You can't use prescription glasses during that year.

I'd rather take eye training programs. I actually did that when I was a young kid for a few years to strengthen a lazy eye and I still don't need glasses!



Would you rather yourself die or have 10 random people in the world die instead of you?

Naked fat guy. I have acid reflux, not sure if I could handle that much salsa.  But it also depends if he's fat enough to break my piano.  If that were the case, I'd go with the salsa and spend some time in the hospital.

wyr be an unbelievable piano performer while being deaf that is confined specifically to playing and hearing your playing (you can listen to other performances) or be able to hear yourself play (no specific gain in talent) but never be able to perform anything remotely resembling actual music anytime you played in front of someone.

 I'd rather be able to hear performers, and not play well for an audience, than play wonderfully and not get to hear it. But then again, the audience would be benefited by hearing some genius terrific playing. What do others think?

I was trying to balance the question in a way that I would be on the fence.  Not being especially talented, I don't think I would necessarily mind not hearing myself while still being able to hear others.  That, and as rach_4ever knows, being an unbelievable performer would get me SOOOO many chicks.  On the other hand, I enjoy learning, but get performance anxiety. So the second option already describes me.

$70. I googled prize money for top racketball competitions and it leaves a lot to be desired! I love playing Squash, I played a national level and we always would make fun of the racketball players if we saw them play :)

Would you rather be invisible for the rest of your life and you can't interact with people or the world in any way, or would you rather be dead?

abstain from piano for 2 weeks.  I could do a song or two, but a concert is a bit much.

50 degrees.  My hands are cold at 15 let alone -50.  Drinking tons of water would at least make it manageable. -50 and my blood is frozen.

wyr puke or fart before every conversation? (puke can go into a garbage can, doesn't need to be on their shoes)

Fart.  Because they're not as nasty as pukes, you know?!  Because after you puke your breath freaking smells bad and it's really ugly.

By picking either option, the person giving the answer unwittingly admits something they know can NEVER be true, and do not even agree with. I think nobody on this forum in his/her right mind could give a good argumentation for killing either of the people proposed. Please ask another question that has nothing to do with any of the people present here. Thank you.

OH and answering the question about killing 100 kittens is ok and people would really do it? and so that means the question that lostin... asked wasn't really a question because noone in their right mind would kill a baby right? but it's ok to kill 100 kittens? right? so I would say that wasn't a valid question either! if questions about killing aren't valid... Or is it just because it's about people from this forum? cause that doesn't make sense either, killing is killing if you know someone or not. and if it's just about killing people, then that wasn't a question at all because it was assumed from the beginning that the person answering the question would choose to kill 100 kittens (and I think that's what lostin... .really wanted). So that was sure not a question! but that was ok right?  :-X

It's 'would you rather', not a justification for why you WILL do it.  It's hypothetical.  Nobody's eyebrows are mysteriously disappearing, taking eye exercise classes, killing 10 random people, losing a thumb, soiling their pants, staring at the naked fat guy on my piano, randomly coming upon $33 or $70 for not caring about womens basketball or racketball, becoming invisible, meeting an alien, farting before every conversation or brushing with razor blades.

Surprisingly, nobody is killing kittens or people either.

Yeah I don't really take it seriously, but I am curious as to what littletune is on about.

No I don't know you. But there are other ways to know what someone is really like.
"What someone is really like" ? You mean if you disagree with them on something like talking about killing kittens then they must fit a certain box of yours? Life is more complicated than that my deary.

And I didn't speculate if it would be better to torture and kill anyone.
But you did with the question to kill and torture me or pp, you can't sidestep that even if you cry  innocence.

Since I can't even begin to imagine how it is possible for people to torture and kill others.
I am sure you have the ability to imagine it or have you never read a newspaper or seen the news on tv, or witnessed the violence in our world? I am sure you could never see yourself actually doing it as the majority of ethical people in this world.

I only gave you back the question you asked in the first place and changed it a little so you could see it in a different way.
See what in a different way? What I see in that question you threw down is that it is motivated by frustration in my previous question.

I think it's disturbing that you have two cats but like to specualte about what would be the right reason to kill 100 of them. 
An acquaintance of mine works for the local dog pound and they put down thousands and thousands of animals every year. She puts them down herself but she loves animals and has many pets herself. Do you see that the world we live in is not just a little box that we like to believe, the world we live in is diverse.

If you are offended by people talking about things that you don't like then ignore it and don't talk about it. It is not as if what I am saying every time you read it a kitten dies.

 :( but ok... maybe that's just a game for you and you didn't mean anything bad.
I did mean something bad in sense of I meant to give a question that was tough to answer but at the same time is obvious to answer. Not everything that is difficult to understand or deal with should be avoided, that's life.

I hope you take care of your cats and don't just see them as your property without feelings. Cause they're not. They have feelings just like people even if you don't believe that.
If my cats didn't have me they would have been dead. They are my property, they are not little human beings. Of course I care for my animals otherwise why would I have them? To torture them every day? I'm not a satanic psychopath you know.

It's 'would you rather', not a justification for why you WILL do it.  It's hypothetical.  Nobody's eyebrows are mysteriously disappearing, taking eye exercise classes, killing 10 random people, losing a thumb, soiling their pants, staring at the naked fat guy on my piano, randomly coming upon $33 or $70 for not caring about womens basketball or racketball, becoming invisible, meeting an alien, farting before every conversation or brushing with razor blades.

Surprisingly, nobody is killing kittens or people either.

The Power of Words is not something that should be underestimated. I think there is a limit to what can be written, even on the Internet in an anonymous situation. Actually, the "Boyfriend" thread was removed earlier today because of a certain line that was crossed. I didn't find the 100-kitten-or-1-baby murder options funny at all, even if we were all expected to take it as a joke. I probably have too much of a vivid imagination and should see a psychiatrist really urgently, I don't know. But when living members on this forum are suggested as victims, that's something that really goes too far, and it's good when somebody says "STOP".

Paul,

My comment was not to justify the comments but to put it in perspective. The fact that it spawned the subsequent conversation was more of what I was pointing to. Clearly some people view certain things as more offensive, but everyone needs to realize their limit isn't the same as someone else's.  Personally, I don't really find anything offensive.  Since my limit is all but non-existent, I took the conversation light-heartedly before realizing it was actually serious. I am probably too emotionally numb, and should see a psychiatrist urgently   :-\.

Aaaaah whatever screw it.

SO...

Your moms and your girlfriends minds are switched, and the only way to switch them back is to have sex with one of them.

So do you have sex with your girlfriend who has your moms mind, or have sex with your mom with your girlfriends mind.

Yeah I don't really take it seriously, but I am curious as to what littletune is on about.
"What someone is really like" ? You mean if you disagree with them on something like talking about killing kittens then they must fit a certain box of yours? Life is more complicated than that my deary.
But you did with the question to kill and torture me or pp, you can't sidestep that even if you cry  innocence.
I am sure you have the ability to imagine it or have you never read a newspaper or seen the news on tv, or witnessed the violence in our world? I am sure you could never see yourself actually doing it as the majority of ethical people in this world.
See what in a different way? What I see in that question you threw down is that it is motivated by frustration in my previous question.
An acquaintance of mine works for the local dog pound and they put down thousands and thousands of animals every year. She puts them down herself but she loves animals and has many pets herself. Do you see that the world we live in is not just a little box that we like to believe, the world we live in is diverse.

If you are offended by people talking about things that you don't like then ignore it and don't talk about it. It is not as if what I am saying every time you read it a kitten dies.
I did mean something bad in sense of I meant to give a question that was tough to answer but at the same time is obvious to answer. Not everything that is difficult to understand or deal with should be avoided, that's life.
If my cats didn't have me they would have been dead. They are my property, they are not little human beings. Of course I care for my animals otherwise why would I have them? To torture them every day? I'm not a satanic psychopath you know.



No it's not just about talking about killing kittens, it's about the way you write and talk in general. I don't like it I never have. These things you say about animals just tell me that I'm right about the feeling I have about you.

I did with my question? It was the same kinda question as yours!!!!

I have the ability to imagine all the horrible things in the world that are happening to people and to animals (and it is very disturbing to me sometimes) but I can't imagine (and don't even want to) what happens in someones mind when they decide to kill or hurt someone.

Well I was agry when I said that yes! But that's not what I wanted you to see, but I guess there's no hope for you anyway.

Well if something is the way it is in this world and people accept it it doesn't make it right!

Obvious to answer? Oh why is it so obvious to answer? Because animal's life is worth so much less than a human's life? Well it's not. It's worth the same, people convince themselves that their lives are worth more but they're not, and I mean I know every species takes care of their own, people are just the same, that's the way it is, but it does bother me when people try to pretend like their lives are somehow worth more...  it's not true. And I couldn't decide who to kill, because I couldn't kill anyone, I would rather kill myself!!!! and why would you even want to ask a question if it seems so obvious to you?

No your cats are not your property! You can imagine they are but they are not. no living being can ever really be someone's property! I mean saving someone's life or caring for them does not make them your property!!! That way of thinking is exactly what I don't like about you! And of course you don't think that way about other people because it would not be accepted but if times were different and it would become acceptable you would think exactly the same about people.

We will never get along and we will never agree with eachother, so I really think it's better to just ignore eachother as much as possble (which is what I have been trying to do for the last 2 years already). Have a nice life!

Actually I never imagined this could become such a big deal! It was just like when someone says: you're stupid and you say: well you're even more stupid. That's all... but it's ok I won't post in this thread again, cause looks like when someone else says something horrible it's ok and when I say it it becomes a huge problem. Actually if enough people say that they don't like me on the forum I will leave the forum. I'm not THAT obsessed with it.

So do you have sex with your girlfriend who has your moms mind, or have sex with your mom with your girlfriends mind.

girlfriend with mom's mind.  Tell her to shut the hell up so we can get this done, and you'll end up with less emotional scarring.  I can't believe that just went through my head.

No hair. I have an intense fear of itches.

Would you rather be trapped in a state of morbid obesity, or trapped in a state of extreme emaciation?

Well I didn't mean it as a joke, I was quite serious about the question since I read in other threads littletune put animals are on par with humans which I thought was the joke itself. I wanted to post a question which was both difficult but easy to answer, nothing wrong with that.

No it's not just about talking about killing kittens, it's about the way you write and talk in general. I don't like it I never have. These things you say about animals just tell me that I'm right about the feeling I have about you.
Well my dear there are a lot worse things that happen in this world than killing kittens, A LOT WORSE. You will learn that eventually. How do I write in general that is offensive? Just because I don't write with countless smiley faces and childish happiness? Golly gosh.


I did with my question? It was the same kinda question as yours!!!!
Your question was vengeful and out of anger/frustration, but that doesn't bother me because it is just pretend, I know you wouldn't want to do it anyway just like I wouldn't want to do what I asked in my question. I was just pointing it out.

I have the ability to imagine all the horrible things in the world that are happening to people and to animals (and it is very disturbing to me sometimes) but I can't imagine (and don't even want to) what happens in someones mind when they decide to kill or hurt someone.
Welcome to the real world, it is not all about fluffy bunnies and happy smiles. If you don't want to imagine or think about something why bother blowing up my question in this thread into a tangent discussion?


Well I was agry when I said that yes! But that's not what I wanted you to see, but I guess there's no hope for you anyway.
No, you can't put up smokes and mirrors of innocence, you are human just like everyone else, and you do get angry and cant control your intentions. That is ok, but don't think that just because you are young you can step on people, you are soon going to be an adult and if you behave like that every time you disagree with something you will have a lot of strife in your life.

Well if something is the way it is in this world and people accept it it doesn't make it right!
It doesn't make it right but it is also not right to try and quash that opinion with frustration.

Obvious to answer? Oh why is it so obvious to answer? Because animal's life is worth so much less than a human's life? Well it's not.
This stance of yours is an extreme minority. Most normal people in this world would say an animals life is worthless compared to a humans. If you don't agree then just go ask some people in this world that are not your family and friends.


It's worth the same, people convince themselves that their lives are worth more but they're not, and I mean I know every species takes care of their own, people are just the same, that's the way it is, but it does bother me when people try to pretend like their lives are somehow worth more...  it's not true.
Well you are welcome to your opinion but I am afraid if you hold this throughout your life you will be a marginalized minority. That is ok, but then don't get upset when you disagree with A LOT of people.

No your cats are not your property! You can imagine they are but they are not.
Legally and in reality they are my property, you can have your opinion that they are not but that doesn't make it a reality, just one persons marginalized opinion.

no living being can ever really be someone's property!
So my pot plant is not my property? Righteo.

I mean saving someone's life or caring for them does not make them your property!!! That way of thinking is exactly what I don't like about you! And of course you don't think that way about other people because it would not be accepted but if times were different and it would become acceptable you would think exactly the same about people.
You really do overestimate your ability to understand people. You think you would know how I react if times where different? Come on now, its getting more and more ridiculous.

We will never get along and we will never agree with eachother, so I really think it's better to just ignore eachother as much as possble (which is what I have been trying to do for the last 2 years already). Have a nice life!
I am afraid it is your own makings that I have a disagreement with you. I don't know who the heck you are, but it seems to me at least you are a very sensitive highly strung person. That doesn't make me dislike you. Maybe if I give you heaps of smiley faces and talk like a kid you will like me?  ;D :D ;D ;D ;D ;) ;) :) :) ::) ::) ::) :P that sorta what you like right?

Yes please remember there are people of many ages here, you might be too young to gel with older members (not that I am a geriatric!). There are many personalities online, you learn to ignore those you dislike. I am sorry you dislike me but at the same time it is not my aim to be liked on the internet (it is also not my aim to be disliked). I merely post things that I am interested to post, if people like it or not it doesn't phase me one iota.

Actually I never imagined this could become such a big deal! It was just like when someone says: you're stupid and you say: well you're even more stupid.
You should learn that you can't step on peoples toes and then flutter your innocent eyes.
