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 twentyfive with questions 2401 – 2500.
2401. Does love come from the brain, the heart or elsewhere?
For me a combination of both.
2402. Have you ever given a shot? If not, do you think you could give one to a loved one if you HAD to? Do you think you could give one to yourself?
No. But I’m sure I could.
2403. Can you lick your elbow? Come on, didja try?
No. Tried it in the past and never could do it
2404. If i was going to be talking to you for 10 minutes, what would be something really intersting you know a little bit about but would like to know more??
About you? Not much. Maybe just how the hell you came up with these questions haha.
2405. If today was a holiday, what would it be?
2406. If you were amking a mix tape what would you HAVE to have one it?
Hmmm… Depends on the mix tape I’d be making. A chill/relax tape? Definitely something by Elsiane.
2407. What do you think of the Sopranos?
Never watched it.
2408. Can you name three good things about the society you live in? How about three bad things?
Good: Freedom, wealth, good social system in terms of education and healthcare.
Bad: The trend of political correctness everywhere, weak stance as a country, lots of people who victimize themselves instead of taking action.
2409. Have you ever had a crush on your teacher? How about your boss?
Boss no, teacher a little.
2410. What is the differance between acting like someone in high school and acting like an adult?
In high school you act like you know it all and are the boss of everthing. As an adult you know you know shit and are definitely not the boss of everything.
2411. What is the differance between a whopper and a whopper jr?
A whopper jr. is smaller?
2413. Do you like:
Moby? I like quite a few of his songs, yes.
Run DMC? I only know “it’s like that”. At least I think that was by them?
the Cure? Some songs.
Shakira? Meh. Although I do catch myself singing along to her music :’)
Blink182? Some songs.
the Pet Shop Boys? Who?
Red Hot Chilli Peppers? Some songs.
Nick cave? Don’t know ’em.
The Pixies? Think I like a few songs by them
The Juice Crew? Don’t know ’em.
2414. Have you ever seen a movie in 3D?
Yes. It’s questions like these that make it super obvious that this survey of 5000 questions is over 10 years old. 3D Movies are really normal nowadays. Kind of weird when you think about it… Because 2006 doesn’t feel that long ago and yet I’m suprised by the realisation that we think of 3D movies as normal now when they weren’t when I was in high school. I’M SO OLD!
2415. How difficult do you think it is for immigrants to come into your country? How difficult is it for them to become citizens?
With the refugee crisis it’s getting a lot harder. But overal I think it’s pretty easy.
2416. Do you have what it takes to go live in another country, maybe for years, where you don’t speak the language as your first language?
2418. have you ever died in your dreams?
2419. Do you like
Philip K Dick?
Orson Scott Card?
Don’t know any of those people.
2420. What clothing size are you? What size do you wish you were? Did you know that Marilyn Monroe was a size 12(and lotsa people think she’s HOT)?
EU 42/44, UK 14/16, US 10/12. And I wish I was a 40/42, 12/14, 8/10.
And yes. She had great curves and body proportions. But her face also held a lot of sex appeal. It was her whole demeanor basically.
2421. Does science leave room for faith? Does faith leave room for science?
“Faith and science, I have learned, are two sides of the same coin, separated by an expanse so small, but wide enough that one side can’t see the other. They don’t know they are connected.” ― Mary E. Pearson, The Adoration of Jenna Fox
2422. What book should our political leaders read and why?
I doubt any of them really read. But I would suggest them to read some books on intercultural management, world religions, and books on the power of truth and honesty.
2423. Why and under what circumstances are people more likely to buy brand names rather then thier generic counterparts?
Depends on the person. A lot of people buy brand stuff only because it is brand stuff. Some only when they actually like it, or when the quality is better etc. etc.
2424. What is your favorite glass object?
2425. Do you like to window shop?
No. I can never control myself.
2426. Have you ever loved someone so much it just turned to hate?
2427. What is arrogance?
Believing you can’t learn anything from anyone and that you are the best at everything, completly disregarding others.
2428. Are you more liberal or conservative?
2429. When there is a presidential election in the USA why do we never hear anything about the third party candidtes? Do you even know who they were last time?
Never really paid any attention to it.
2430. Are you more likely to buy one really nice expensive outfit or a couple of cheap outfits?
Couple of cheap outfits.
2431. If you could, would you wear everything once, throw it out and buy something new?
No. Some items are too nice to only wear once.
2432. Do you believe that people have a responsiblity to be:
good to other people?
good at their job?
helpful to the earth(not litter, recycle)?
aware consumers(not buy animal tested products, not buy products that were made in sweatshops, etc)?
non-wasteful (not spend their money frivolously when they could save it to help others)?
charitable (donatine money, volunteering)?
Which of the aabove are you?
Everyone has a responsibility to do all of these things. They don’t have to dedicate their entire lives to it but it is good to be mindful of those things. I know I try to. Probably the one I could do a lot better in is being an aware consumer.
I like to buy loads of cheap things even though I know they might come from sweatshops etc. I have been making some small changes though. Buying more thriftstore items and skipping for example body scrubs don’t work with micro-plastic. Those don’t get filtered out and end up in oceans etc. where they can be very harmful to fish and other creatures.
2433. How do you feel about the internet? Should there be laws and censorship on the internet?
Amazing <3 And cencorship, no! Laws? Against scams and fraud etc.
2434. Can you think of any questions that aren’t already on this survey?
2435. Does sleep seem like a little death to you?
Yes. The biggest difference between sleep and death is waking up again.

Have seen Monsters Inc. and Queen of the Damned. Quite liked them!

2439. How many lovers have you had?
An average amount.
2440. Have you ever had surgery? For what?
Yes. A couple of times. Trouble with breathing, allergies, tonsils etc. So they did some stuff to the inside of my nose and throat.
2441. What puts you in the mood for sex?
That can be loads of things.
2442. Have you ever been on alcohol or drugs while at school or work?
At work, never. School a few times.
2443. What do you think of Martha Stewart?
I think she’s great. And I love the fact that she went to jail and everyone still thinks of her as the most amazing housewife and everything haha.
2445. What do you think of: British people? Australians? Americans? Canadians? Mexicans? French people? Germans?
I don’t really want to generalize because all I would write down would be silly stereotypes that I know won’t be true for a very large number of people :’)
2446. What do you do to cure the hiccups?
Hold my breath or try to distract myself.

Don’t really care for either.

No. Should I?
2456. Do you take things slowly, as they come?
2457. Are you laid back or tense?

2459. Imagine you aare working in a soup kitchen. You are supposed to give each person on the line a half a cup of soup. When hungry people come up to you do you just end up emptying the cabinets for them?
No. Half a cup it is. Don’t want to risk running out and having nothing to give to others. Perhaps if everyone had had their half a cup and there was still some left I would give out more.
2460. Why can’t ywe give ourselves one more chance? Why can’t we all just get along?
Because giving people too many chances will only end up with everyone hurt. And we can’t get along because we are too different from eachother.
2461. What bands do you want to see live that you have never seen?
I really don’t care that much for seeing bands live. But I guess something fun and Japanese like Baby Metal or Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

2463. Do you think that the Beatles are still the Beatles without John Lennon? Would you want to see the Sex Pistols without Sid Vicious? Did you think that the members of Nirvana were smart to reform as the Foo Fighters instead of trying to stay Nirvana after Kurt’s death?
Don’t really have an opinion on the first two but I think the last one was rather smart.
2464. Do you like the band Squeeze?
2465. When you are angry or upset do you know you’re being irrational but you can’t really stop?
2466. Is there room in your life for one more trip to the moon?
As long as I’m not going, yes.

Your first best friend in elementary school? I don’t know. We fell out a few years ago.
your first crush? somewhere in a massive house in Hollywood probably 😉
your first boy/girlfriend? Not counting middle school boyfriend (who is in Belgium now I think) my first real boyfriend I got in high school and he died in a car carsh a few years ago.
your first love? Define first love. Because I had a big teenage love romance going on with the boyfriend mentioned above. But my partner is the one I think I actually really love, like a grown up love if you know what I mean?
your first lover? See above.
2468. Do you have a lot of self pity?
2469. have you ever had something really good come out of something really bad that happened to you?
Can’t really think of anything right now.
2470. Do you like magnetic poetry? If you could make a magnetic poetry set: what would be the theme? What would some of the words be?

2471. What is one of your secret delights? What gives you a cheap thrill? What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
Reading dirty fanfiction or those erotic pocketnovels but with a supernatural hint. I also love watching shitty television from time to time. Shows like Geordie Shore and The Valleys :’)
2472. Have you ever misinterpreted song lyrics in a funny way (I used to think that ‘wake me up before you go, go’ was ‘wake me up and buy me cocoa’)?
Sure I have but I can’t think of an example right now.
2473. What are the most popular/overused diary names?

My boyfriend. Too many ways.
2478. Does your place have a lawn gnome?
2479. Do you ever wonder, ‘why me’? When?
2480. Is rap a form of poetry?
In a way, yes.
2481. What’s the differance between a player and a baller?
I used Urban Dictionary for this one:
Player: “A male who is skilled at manipulating (“playing”) others, and especially at seducing women by pretending to care about them, when in reality they are only interested in sex. Possibly derived from the phrases “play him for a fool”, or “play him like a violin”. The term was popularized by hip-hop culture, but was commonly recognized among urban American blacks by the 1970s. A certain class of low-rent, slack-jawed fuckups has decided that backstabbing and misogyny are totally radical, so the word is sometimes used as a compliment or term of endearment between male friends, as in the greeting “what’s up, player?”.
Baller: “A thug that has “made it” to the big time. Originally refered ball players that made it out of the streets to make millions as a pro ball player, but now is used to describe any thug that is living large.”
2482. What imagery do you get from the words ‘woodsmoke and herbs’?
2483. How many days until your birthday?
Too many! Always too many!
2484. have you ever MEANT to hurt anyone?
2485. What are 3 things you don’t know?
There’s way more than 3 things I don’t know ranging from what I’m going to eat tonight, to what happens when I die.
2486. Do you usually feel physically well or unwell?
2487. Would you ever submit your picture to be ‘rated’ on one of those ‘hot or not’ websites?
I did! Me and my friends did it as part of a drinking game once :’) It was actually really flattering for me ego haha.
2488. Why are there hardly ever any fat people in movies?
They don’t fit the stereotypical image of beauty.
2489. Is there any differance between what’s real and what’s for sale?
Not quite sure what you mean with this one.
490. Are you funky?
A little bit.
2491. Do appologies always make things all better?
Most definitely not. I remember reading an example of a teacher trying to illustrate this to her class by giving everyone a bottle of shampoo or gel etc. They were told to hold them upside down to let the liquid pour out. Once they were done she said “saying sorry for making the mess isn’t going to magically remove it and put it back in the bottle. The damage is done and words won’t fix it.” Saying sorry is a start but if you don’t do anything afterwards to really show you are sorry and are trying to repair what you have done it won’t do you any good.
2492. Let’s just say that there is a huge ass bomb that can blow up the Whole Planet..it is set to blow up in 100 years. You can push the button to stop it but if you do you Will die. You only have this one chance to stop it. Do you stop it?
I’d like to be noble and say yes but I probably wouldn’t, unless I was already dying or something.
2493. Let’s say someone else found the button to stop it instead of you. Do you think it is their moral obligation to save humanity at the expense of their own life?
Why would it be theirs if I’m not willing to do the same?
2494. What’s the silliest name you can think of?
Here’s a few: http://blazepress.com/2014/04/25-people-funniest-names-ever/
2495. It’s the middle of the night and you are home alone. Someone knocks on the dorr and says their car breoke down and asks to use your phone. What do you do?
Ask them what happend to their mobile phone? Otherwise I’d make them wait outside the door and give them my housephone for a call.
2496. If a cop pulled you over and asked if he could search your car what would you say?
No. Not that I have anything to hide but without good reason or legal cause I won’t allow it.
2497. Are you meek or nasty around cops?
2498. If you were me and I was you then where would we be?
Probably both behind a computer still.
2499. What has been the greatest invention so far?
2500. We are at question 2500. Do you REALIZE what this MEANS??!!!
Halfway there! Yay!!!
