    If you could take a year of paid leave from your job and come back to it like you were never gone, what would you do with that year?
    Travel and write extensively, both of which would not allow me to return to my job in the same frame of mind I had left it. So, I probably wouldn't return, lol.

    Arthritic. I imagine it might be more painful, but probably less deadly.

    What's the worst pain you've ever felt?
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    OUCH.

    I'd say brown with green and gold and a little red. Maybe mostly brown.

    Same question.

    Primarily a deep, dark purple color. A very regal purple. With white and black vertical stripes on each side.

    I keep drinking Malbec. I must like it or something.

    Should the drinking age be lowered to 18 in the US?

    Absolutely. If 18-21 year olds were treated as adults (i.e. they had to own up to their behaviour instead of being infantilized) they would drink more responsibly. I think it's laughable that the drinking age in the United States is 21. 21 is the highest drinking age in the Americas and one of the highest in the world. There are only a handful of places in the world that have higher limits.

    Same question.


    EDIT: I looked up drinking ages around the world. The only places stricter than the US are a few states in India (where the age is 25) and the Muslim theocracies in the Middle East (which ban alcohol outright). I wonder how it feels for the US to be lumped in with backward religious freaks.

    Yes, I think it should be lowered to at least 18 (drinks like beer are available here at age of 16 already), because a higher regulated age probably has a negative effect since the forbidden stuff is just more attractive and at that age they are able to get what they want anyway. Also, you expect from 18-21 year old persons (which in many countries are already adults) already a lot responsibilities, so you have to give them also the right to meet their own decisions. I don't see any reason why it should be that high either, I don't think it reduces the risk of an unresponsible use of alcohol. Even though it is not always easy either to control, this should be something the parents should be looking after.

    What do you think about death penalty, should it be part of a law system or not?

    I don't think the death penalty is a good idea. State-sanctioned murder, however justified the people may feel the state is to carry it out, is wrong for the simple fact that wrongful convictions can and do occur. Many innocent people have been executed for crimes they didn't commit.

    Same question.
