Question of the Week #308

If you discovered that when you were conceived, you were one of five identical embryos and have four living identical twins, would you be more intrigued or distressed?

Question of the Week #302

Would you have one of your fingers removed surgically if it somehow guaranteed you immunity from all major diseases?

Question of the Week #301

Do your close friends tend to be older or younger than you? Less or more talented and successful than you? Do they share your values? Ambitions? Interests?

Question of the Week #300

What could someone figure out about you by the friends you've chosen? That I like to keep to myself... Okay, not really. I mean, yes, it's true that I'm an introvert and I tend to keep to myself.
