Question of the Week #233

If the person you were engaged to was in a car crash and became a paraplegic, would you back out of the marriage? If not, what if they became a quadriplegic? I thought this question looked familiar and, yeah... I've used it before. Way back in the Question of the Week from November 28, 2015. … Continue reading Question of the Week #233

Question of the Week #232

If it were the only way you could remain with the love of your life, would you be willing for both of you to wake up tomorrow as native speakers of an unfamiliar foreign language, knowing that within a week you'd permanently forget the languages you now speak and largely be cut off from your … Continue reading Question of the Week #232

Question of the Week #231

For $100,000, would you put on 40 pounds and keep it on for 3 years? How much money, if any, would induce you to put on 100 pounds for at least a year? I don't think so. I mean, I'm already overweight as it is. $100,000 over three years really isn't much. I mean, sure, … Continue reading Question of the Week #231

Question of the Week #230

Would you like there to be a law requiring the police to archive video footage of everything they do while on duty? What a timely question! Yes. Absolutely. Without a doubt. Now, I'm not one to look at recent events and jump on board with the thought that all cops are corrupt. I don't think … Continue reading Question of the Week #230

Question of the Week #229

If your heart were damaged beyond repair, but you could regain your health for a few more years by getting a heart transplant from a genetically engineered pig, would you? I feel like, for a lot of people, this would be some kind of moral quandary. It's really not for me. I mean, if they … Continue reading Question of the Week #229

Question of the Week #228

What, if any, fruits of our culture are worth more than even a million lives? For example, what if all the music or fiction of the past century was at risk? This is basically a follow up to last week's question, right? As with my answer last week, I'm just not one to think that … Continue reading Question of the Week #228

Question of the Week #227

On a typical Sunday (when there isn't a global pandemic), 10,000 people visit the Louvre in Paris. If a wicked sorcerer threatened to vaporize all the museum's visitors or all of its art, sparing one or the other based on your plea, which would you save? Assume the sorcerer will obliterate both the people and … Continue reading Question of the Week #227

Question of the Week #226

If you could anonymously and safely destroy any one person's reputation online through various postings, would you? If so, who and why? Who am I to do such a thing to anyone? The way I see it, even if it's someone who deserves it, it isn't my place to publicly judge that person. And if … Continue reading Question of the Week #226

Question of the Week #225

If you were on a jury, would you be willing to convict a person for something you didn't think should be considered a crime? You know, I've been a registered voter for 22 years and I have never been summoned for jury duty. It really bums me out. I think I'd make a fantastic juror. 12 … Continue reading Question of the Week #225

Question of the Week #224

What is the most serious law you've broken doing something you thought was morally right, wouldn't hurt anyone, or was no one's business but yours? How bad would the punishment have been if you'd been caught and given the maximum sentence? I have been racking my brain and I can't think of a single time … Continue reading Question of the Week #224
