Right, in the table above I answered a whole load or questions. I have now made a list of all those questions that to add more to than the space of the tabled allowed. So I begin, as is customary, with the first one on my list, which is question 6
Q6 – Shoe size
Firstly, how does this question help anyone? As these are questions that are designed to be passed on to your friends, the only person this could be of any use to would be a friend intending to buy you some kind of footwear for a present. Nonetheless, I am size 11 for trainers and size 12 for boots.
Q9 – Style
I find this a rather stupid question. What the hell is style? (yet another rhetorical question) I what is meant by this is townie or grunge etc but in reality these are split in to infinitesimal numbers of variations and sub-divisions. I think that I shall, just to be irritating, describe my style as normal.
Q10 – Fears
I find my fears very odd. I am very scared of heights, but for some reason I love going abseiling and climbing etc yet when it comes to spiders, a far more irrational fear, I have no intention of doing anything whatsoever to provoke this fear. And to those who are saying “why are you afraid of spiders” or words to that effect, I feel the need to point out the true meaning of a phobia (as I consider myself to have arachnophobia). A phobia is “an unexplained fear”, so I can not answer the question “why am I afraid of spiders” as I simple don’t know.
Q19 – Wearing
This strikes me as, yet another rather stupid question. Firstly who cares what I am wearing and secondly how does that help them paint a better picture of me (metaphorically). I feel the need to keep returning to the fact of who these question were designed for. They were designed for people who know the person answering. So this answer cant possible tell them something they did not already know about the sort of thing that person usually wears and so I count it void. And for anyone interested, I am not and never will be wearing a black leather thong and leopard skin tights…sorry
Q25 – Brush your teeth
Ah yes, this is yet ANOTHER of those falling under the category, “stupid question”. I feel no need to enter into further detail as I’m sure you will understand.
Q26 – Like anybody
I believe this question as far as I can see is better catered for under question 53. Like is too ambiguous. I like all my friends, but not in the way I THINK this question means. I therefore feel the need to stress upon anyone making up these questions; write questions that are definitive and understandable from first viewing.
Q32 – Who is your best
Do people have best friends past the age of 10? I’m not sure that they do. I think once you get to about that age you know too many people to have a best friend. If you haven’t reached this stage by around 10 then when you get to secondary school any ideas of best friends instantly go out the window. Now here is a question; is it better to have lots of friends or a best friend and then your other friends who aren’t quite your best friend? This is rhetorical, so I’m not expecting an influx of e-mails. As we get older we seem to want to be more even handed to the people we know, not favouring one person over everyone else. I wonder if this is the roots to “being politically correct”?
Q37 – Who have you know the shortest
Yet another falls gracefully onto the pile. How many stupid questions can one person think up! Without defining known this is yet another failed question. How many times must you have spoken to, seen, glanced at etc before this person is “known to you”.
Q38 – Who do you miss the most
This is very much like question 32. I miss lots of people, but for different reasons. For some it’s the conversation, for others their smile, some it’s the jokes we shared. You cant really say who you miss the most unless you only miss one person.
Q39 – Personal problems.
Another for the pile of stupid questions. There are once again many way this could be interpreted. Is it asking “do you have any personal problems” or is it asking “what are your personal problems”. If the latter is the case then the answer as to why I should no answer this question is in the question. They are personal! That means most people don’t want to publicise them.
Q41 – Do you trust your friends.
When will it end, yet more stupid questions! What has the world come to! If I didn’t trust them then they wouldn’t be my friends. I’m shocked I had to even point that out.
Q43 – Can you keep a secret
Perhaps a better question would be; would you, or will you keep a secret? As to the best of my knowledge, everyone CAN keep a secret, but not everyone chooses to.
Q48 – Yelled at
Who the hell cares? Exactly. And if your one of those people who will say yes, just to be annoying and “different” (as I know I am), Don’t!
Q49 – Fell in love with
This I feel is asking just a bit too much of anyone. There are some things that should be kept personal. I agree in the world today it seems that everyone and anyone is quite happy to discuss their sexual habit and other bits of information that the general populous ready don’t want to know, all for a bit of TV and their 15 minuets of fame. But this should not be the case. This country is already a long way down the road in turning into America, but there’s no need to provoke it. People are going to have to learn that some things should just be kept personal, and that’s that.
Q51 – What has been the best day in your life.
This I feel is very much like the whole best friends thing. Most people don’t just have a best day, they maybe have a best time in their life, or several days that they enjoyed the most. Every day has good bits and bad bits. I bet anyone who says they have a best day cant still think of something that wasn’t quite right, or could have been better for that day. The first thing I think of when I wonder what my best moment of my life is, is when I went skiing in America. However, there are so many moments that I have enjoyed so much more. Time with friends, sun sets on a beach, a walk in the middle of the night, even just a conversation had in a couple of minuets. Those are the best bits, the bits that make you smile, not the ones you THINK are the best days.
Q52 – What comes first in your life
I feel, although I may well have pointed out the obvious, I assume this what not quite what the question meant. I assume it what comes first in your life in terms of friends, family, money. If you were to give your life a purpose, what would it be? Do people even have a main drive in there life? You could say you appreciate you friends over your family because you choose your friends, you’re stuck with your family. This is the attitude many take, but just stop and think, your family is stuck with you, and they are still there for you, whereas your friends choose you. I would say this is a tough call, friends of family, and I suppose it depends on the friends and the family, but in the end, both will do there best to be there for you when you need it.
Q53 – Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend/crush
This is another unfair question, If you want whoever you send this to know, then you would have already told them, if you don’t want them to know, then this is just another awkward question you would rather avoid. As to the “long story” bit of my answer, just because I said it was a long story, doesn’t mean I want to broadcast it to the world.
Q54 – What are you most scared of
How could you not be scared of life…it can go just like that, yet it’s the reason for your friends, your family etc. You can be scared of losing it, not having a good one, not making the most of the one you have, taking advantage of others…the list could go on for a while.
Q73 – Like to walk in the rain
This along with walking in the dark are too things that I find can help me just get away from it all or give me the chance to think. Life is so busy all the time, I suppose its my chance to get away from it all and just let my mind of its lead for a run around for a while. The only thing I don’t enjoy is taking a walk at night when it’s raining. I find that just takes the fun out of it. I am what I quess would be classified as a “keen walker”. This just means I like to go for a walk in the country, just for a breather. If I go for a walk with a friend, I find I enjoy the conversation so much more and I can be far more honest. Maybe this is because there are not distractions, or maybe its just a bit of fresh air. Its nice to have some solitude not and then as well. I mean, I live in a country of around 58,000,000 people and hell does that feel like a lot when you go Christmas shopping. We just get used to all these people everywhere, we almost how nice it is for them not to be there. Just try it, stop living the fast life for a moment. Its only when you look at it from a different perspective, you see how much nicer it is when it slows down…just bit.
Q75 – Like to travel
Not everyone likes to travel, but surly everyone like to see new places, if only just to say, “yep, bin there, done that”. We are all naturally curious, so this is just our curiosity taking us a few steps on from peering over the neighbours fence.
Q79 – Abortion
I recognise that’s it’s human life, and you cant just terminate it as though it didn’t matter, but I also recognise that there are some cases where its could be considered to be cruel to make that baby live, when it will have nothing more than misery. There is no point in keeping a child alive that will have virtually no quality of life. If for example it is know that the child will die within a few months of being born and will be in pain up until it dies, then as hard as I would find it if I had to make the decision, the kindest thing you can do is save it the trouble of a wasted life. If however there is a chance that that child will be able to reach its potential, whatever that may be, then it must be taken as in this case, the end may well justify the means. I understand that there are an infinitesimal number of different situations that you could encounter, but all I ask is you think what is best for the child. This is a last option and should only be considered when EVERTHING else has been looked at, this is still life we’re talking about after all.
