What would you do?

I know it has been a while since I last blogged, but things get hectic sometimes. The only update I have on my novel is that it will begin editing in June and we think its going to remain UNHINGED. It is such a slooooow process.

In the meantime, however, some friends and I were playing that “would you do this” game and came up with a few good questions. When you read these questions, don’t just answer them on the fly without giving them consideration. Think hard and imagine if the scenarios became a reality. Don’t think of these questions as a game; think about them as a psychological test in order to learn something new about yourself.

  1. Would you accept a twenty-year journey to explore the universe in a spacecraft that wanted for nothing, except you would not be able to return home?

  2. If you were one of the wealthiest people in the world, worth hundreds of billions of dollars, where making money was no longer a goal; what would you do then?

  3. If you had the chance to go back in time and kill Hitler when he was a baby, knowing that butterfly effect would bring about the end of democracy in America, would you do it?

  4. Would you rather be a great looking star athlete that dies in their forties or a smart physically challenged person that lives into their eighties?

  5. If you accidentally killed someone, but couldn’t prove it was an accident and had the opportunity to hide the body and get away with it, would you?

  6. If your spouse gave the okay to have sex with one celebrity and the opportunity presented itself, would you do it?

  7. How much money would it take for you to have sex with someone you are disgusted by? If you are straight, with someone of the same sex?

  8. While you are still young, would you want to learn all the mysteries of mankind if you were to die afterward? Or if you could live, but could never share that knowledge?

  9. How would your life change if it was proven that there is no God?

  10. What if at eighty years old, you lived an unsatisfactory life and had the opportunity to go back and do things differently, would you? What’s stopping you now?
I like this top ten thing. Maybe I'll do some more. Move over Letterman.
