As part of my 101 things to do in 1001 days I’ve accepted the challenge of answering the ‘5000 Question Survey’. I’ll be following the original 50 parts and answer a 100 questions per post. This is part eightteen with questions 1701 – 1800.
1701. How will tomorrow be like today?
Hopefully I’ll wake up again, get dressed again, eat again, and relive some of the fun moments from the weekend as I edit pictures.
1702. How would you react if a stranger pinched your bottom?
Well I’m definitely going to freak out and call the police for so called molestation. But I wouldn’t be happy or appreciative, either!
1703. When was the last time you went on a date?
Do dates with my boyfriend count? Because that was quite recently.
1704. Have you ever ridden a horse?
Yes. I used to ride them every know and then when I was young. A couple of my friends had horses at home so when I went over to play there we would ride them sometimes.
1706. What is almost over?
1707. What should you be doing that you are putting off?
Cleaning, saving, working. Loads of things really.
1708. How much would you have to change physically before you would no longer be yourself anymore?
I don’t know. I guess the physical aspects is something that you could work around? Or get used to? They don’t really define you. Perhaps to a certain extent they could influence your confidence or physical abilities. But it also depends, if you define yourself as a dancer and it’s your passion and you suddenly lose your legs, I guess that would change a lot about who you are. I guess for me, not being able to see as a physical change would be terrible. Pretty much all my interests are based on seeing. But getting fat/skinny wouldn’t really change much about how I am.
1709. How much would you have to change mentally before you would no longer be yourself anymore?
I honestly don’t know. Would you be able to tell if it wasn’t really you anymore if you change mentally?
1710. Would you rather be famous or notorious?
1711. Would you rather have a necklace that’s dripping with diamonds or a blueberry farm?
The necklace. I’d sell it though and go travelling with it. The blueberry farm sounds rather cool too though.
1712. Could you take first place in a beauty contest?
Maybe with a hell of a lot of make-up, wigs, and prostethics? Oh and I’de have to lose a lot more weight haha! So, no.
1713. Who is the biggest hypocrite you know and why?
Politicians. And vegans who still wear real leather etc. And loads more that I honestly can’t think of right now.
1714. Would you consider yourself to be more opinionated or bitchy?
Opinionated. I hardly ever get bitchy.
1715. How long is it until your next day off?
1716. What sound is annoying you right now?
1717. Imagine you’re taking a vacation with 4 people. Who are they?
My family and boyfriend.
1718. The five of you travel by plane. Suddenly your plane crashes down over snowy mountains. The pilot and the air crew and all the other passengers die. The only way for you to survive is for one of you to get eaten by the others. Who will it be?
Well if the other passengers are dead we could eat them. You’re not going to eat someone who is still alive and has survived the crash. And let’s say for argument’s sake that everyone burned away. Then I still wouldn’t eat any of my family or partner. And I doubt they would want to either. So I guess we would all die then.
1719. Anorexia and obesity are two life threatening eating related disorders. Why is it that when it is discovered that someone is an anorexic they are rushed to the hospital, but when someone is obese they are not rushed to the hospital?
Because anorexia can kill someone much quicker and is a much more immediate threat. It’s also easier to define and recognize anorexia. Obesity doesn’t have to be deadly straight away, there’s levels of it as well and even an obese person (not talking morbidly obese here) can be relatively healthy still. But shows like my 600lbs life and those kind of moribdly obese people should be taken into (forced) hospital care as they clearly need a lot of (mental) help and support.
1720. Who is your favorite smurf?
The girl smurf. Duh.
1721. Why do you do things that you know are bad for you?
Because they are sometimes sooooo good to enjoy or so much fun. I mean you got to life a little and enjoy life.
1722. How important is testing to education?
To a certain extent tests are good but they sometimes test the wrong things. For example with history exams we would get both factual quizzes about dates and times things happend but also a lot of questions that made you think about underlying issues, why certain things happend, and why people acted the way I did. I think testing those things can be great.
1723. What food group do you eat the most of (bread and pasta, meats and eggs and fish, fruits and vegetables, milk and cheese, sugar and butter)?
I guess bread and pasta, meats, eggs, fish. Sugar has gone waaaaay down since I stopped drinking soft drinks etc.
1724. Who is the most adorable person you know?
1725. If you had to spend a half hour locked in a dark closet with someone from school or work that you don’t normally hang out with who would you want it to be?
Don’t really mind.
1726. How often do you masturbate in a week?
I don’t, masturbation makes you blind 😉
1727. In the USA people work a full third of the year for the government, due to taxes. How do you feel about this?
We have the same, if not more. But we get education and pretty damn good healthcare in return so I honestly don’t mind that much. It’s just part of life. And sure people abuse the system sometimes but we also help plenty of people who truly need it.
1728. Should people be allowed to use cell phones in their cars?
1729. Have you ever been in the room while a human baby was born?

1741. Has anyone ever told you that your epidermis was showing?

Hellz yeah. All of it!
1748. If someone asks you to read a poem they wrote, will you really take your time to try and understand what they wrote and tell them what you think or just read it quickly and tell them that its really good?
I would try to understand and really look into it. But I suck at poetry so I doubt it’ll be worth much.

Neck? See above.

I know to wait untill the car is atleast submerged up until the window and then smash and swim out as quickly. If in the dark or hard to see water. Try to blow out a few bubbles of air to see/feel which direction they go to get to the surface. Just hoping I remember all of it and don’t panic if it actually happens.
