I used to pick them a lot but I never bit them, imagine the germs that could be lurking under your nails. 11 months ago  
Eating the flesh of dogs is not great, but I am not going to call all Asians subhuman because that's stupid. 1 year ago +1
Misclick. I love morning sunshine: it always has a fresh and almost ethereal feel to it. 1 year ago  
At least it would have fewer potentially fatal side effects. 1 year ago  
You find people without a profile pic worse than Nazis? That just makes it worse. You foul person. 1 year ago +1
You're disgusting. 1 year ago +1
Found the Nazi. 1 year ago  
My best friend happens to be a family member. 1 year ago  
This is disgusting. Where is the report button? 1 year ago +4
I may be wrong, but didn't he *choose* to be put on the cross? 1 year ago +3
Well, this isn't homophobic in the slightest... 1 year ago  
It would be useful if you had to survive by eating plants. 1 year ago +1
A gets on my nerves. B is awesome. 2 years ago  
I take them off for height but not always for weight. 2 years ago  
I wouldn't bet on it, I've sat next to people who look like they're having a banquet. 2 years ago  
It isn't in the UK. 2 years ago  
I suppose Count of Monte Cristo has given me romanticised ideas about A, but... I could write a book, like the guy in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. 2 years ago  
...then why did you vote for it? 2 years ago  
Only in certain places. 2 years ago  
Only in certain places. It isn't in the UK. 2 years ago  
...I think it meant that the pedestrian light was red. 2 years ago  
...in your opinion. 2 years ago  
But there wouldn't be all that many traffic lights if it weren't for pedestrian crossings. They'd only be at difficult intersections. 2 years ago  
Huh, tell me about it :( 2 years ago  
Classical music FTW 2 years ago +1
Isn't jaywalking illegal in some places? 2 years ago +1
Drunk driving shouldn't endanger innocent people 2 years ago +1
Silence is better than sarcasm. 2 years ago  
Being British does tend to hold one back a bit. 2 years ago  
A is nothing like B. In one your body is dead but your mind intact; in the other vice versa. 2 years ago  
Having done both, I have to say that neither was pleasant, but B was just slightly preferable. 2 years ago  
Drugs are more likely to harm just the user and nobody else. Whereas guns... 2 years ago +1
I have never seen a picture of him in which he was vaguely good-looking, even from his own sources. 2 years ago  
I think you need to cut down a bit. 2 years ago  
What the hell are you on? 2 years ago  
That is about the most illogical response to my statement I can think of. 2 years ago  
I can't remain loyal to something so changeable and, at the moment, truly dislikeable. 2 years ago  
I never said "politically correct". I said "correct". As in "right", "polite", "decent". 2 years ago  
I would be apart of any cringe fandom. Being a part of one is another matter. 2 years ago  
I would never want some of my dreams to be real. 2 years ago +1
But I quite often take a coat with me at the height of summer 2 years ago  
As an aromantic asexual, I think that flying would be far more fun. 2 years ago +1
That's the best picture you could find for A? He's hideous. 2 years ago  
I could write a book about it and get rich 2 years ago  
I could hide them under my hair but quite frankly it would be quite cute 2 years ago +3
"Cyprus is Greek" um no, Cyprus is a country of its own. 2 years ago  
Those few gay people who love Trump are misguided. And I don't think it's correct to refer to them as "the gays". 2 years ago +1
Interesting and a bit worrying. Fortunately it's a minority of Latinos. 2 years ago  
Water can slow down and even disintegrate bullets. 2 years ago +2
I've heard of it but never played it so I don't know if I like it or not. 2 years ago  
My computer usually crashes if I open more :( 2 years ago  
I would much rather go to the past than the future. The future could be terrible. 2 years ago  
Surely one can be fulfilled without being famous? 2 years ago  
Already do B 2 years ago  
Ooh I didn't notice the Wedding March bit. I like the whole Midsummer suite better than the 1812, but I prefer the 1812 to just the Wedding March. 2 years ago  
I feel it would improve many lives in the long run. 2 years ago  
I did well in school but I still think it's intrinsically flawed. So many intelligent people are stifled or failed by the school system, because of the government's definition of intelligence. 2 years ago +1
Sometimes the state it's in annoys me and I make it. Usually I just leave it. 2 years ago  
The Mozart Requiem is just extraordinary 2 years ago  
I can't take A seriously. 2 years ago  
Difficult one. 2 years ago  
Almost nothing beats the good ol' Choral. 2 years ago  
Ooh, that was tough. The Grieg is atmospheric and impressive... but the Mozart is so much fun. 2 years ago  
A is used for everything and it's getting annoying. B hasn't quite reached that stage but it's close. 2 years ago  
Stereotypes only exist because people uphold them. 2 years ago  
If they deserve to be fired, and they have betrayed me before, why the hell shouldn't I? 2 years ago +1
I don't have a TV, video games or consoles. 2 years ago +1
Now this one was hard. 2 years ago  
I used to like A but it's overplayed 2 years ago  
Gorgeous little piece 2 years ago  
Truly, if you knew anything at all, your association would not exist. You need to stop stereotyping. I am not saying you must enjoy classical music; I am saying you must explore it in detail before giving such a shallow judgment. 2 years ago  
...you really don't know a lot about classical music, do you? 2 years ago  
Already starting to feel as if I had A. Would much rather have something to look forward to. 2 years ago +1
I didn't learn French for nothing. 2 years ago  
It would be strange to like the Toccata and Fugue and no other pieces if you had heard a lot. There are a good many similar pieces. 2 years ago +1
Tbh I'd probably just sit it out in bed with a bottle of Calpol and soup. 2 years ago  
Already do, I use my laptop for everything else 2 years ago +1
Tough one but Dvorak 9 is more melodic and slightly less clumsy 2 years ago  
Beethoven 9 is one of the absolute best 2 years ago  
You must not have heard very much classical music. 2 years ago +1
Both are awesome, but B is overplayed 2 years ago  
So basically, would you rather survive the crash or not survive the crash? 2 years ago +3
I think the likelihood of most of these questions is just about impossible, you have to imagine that it is. 2 years ago  
None of them, the US doesn't seem particularly attractive at present. 2 years ago +3
I didn't purposely choose them as especially bad genres. I just happen to love classical and hate country... 2 years ago  
I've been away from the site for months, I can't help not seeing every single question. 2 years ago  
Then you'd just be handcuffed to a corpse for life. 2 years ago  
It would be an interesting adventure, and a good chance to test my knowledge gained from reading adventure novels. 2 years ago +1
I can't drive so probably B would be the better and safer option 2 years ago  
Nothing would ever get done if nobody did A 2 years ago +1
People will talk about it for ages, thus giving your game some level of immortality and a good level of popularity 2 years ago  
You can see the future?? 2 years ago +1
Easier to keep seeing as I don't own a large bit of sea 2 years ago +1
Intelligence will probably lead to wittiness, and possibly charm as well, and anyway it's more impressive 2 years ago +1
Why does B have any votes at all??? 2 years ago +5
Left libertarian 2 years ago  
I could do A with B 2 years ago  
C'mon people, I'm sure it can't be that hard not to use the internet for six hours a day 2 years ago +1
This is where bringing back heraldry could come in useful 2 years ago +1
Don't use it anyway 2 years ago  
I think I dreamt about Iceland getting invaded by Daleks once 2 years ago  
When you get that perfect picture 2 years ago  
This is actually great because you can then go and meet all the historical people! 2 years ago +1
There are so many people for both I want to meet... but summoning rather than just reviving will increase my chance of meeting them, surely? 2 years ago  
Brexit is turning out to be a bit of a mess tbh but Trump as president would probably do more damage 2 years ago +1
You call that bacon?? 2 years ago  
That would actually be quite relaxing, I imagine. Except the day you got internet back and you had a month of Twitter and emails to look back through 2 years ago  
You could always sell it 2 years ago  
Bankers may well be psychopaths for all I know, but banks by themselves aren't 2 years ago +2
That marriage by itself caused pregnancies. 2 years ago  
I wish I still had my flip phone. It died when it got rained on 2 years ago

I always though "pooping" sounded pretty funny because I'm not American 2 years ago  
Mostly. Some dogs are just adorable. 2 years ago  
or British? 2 years ago +1
I can't drive either, but the motorbike might be easier 2 years ago  
You can go wherever you like 2 years ago +1
I suppose it depends on the restaurant and the street vendor. A decent crepe or ice cream might be preferable to a McDonalds. 2 years ago  
If you're unable to stop it (A) that doesn't make you dumb, just not omnipotent. If you can stop it but don't (B), that's just lazy and ignorant. 2 years ago +4
Those high-pitched ones that only some people can hear 2 years ago +1
I do like London 2 years ago  
If they could talk you would miss them even more when they died. 2 years ago +1
Neither, I just tend to rescue bugs and put them outside 2 years ago

What 2 years ago  
The problem with having siblings 2 years ago +1
This is actually one of my fantasies 2 years ago  
B would be too stressful 2 years ago  
I'm pretty sure she can't be that bad. 2 years ago  
Already do B, I don't understand it 2 years ago  
LOTR, War and Peace, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell... 2 years ago +2
I have a mild fascination with social history 2 years ago +1
And what's wrong with being gay? 2 years ago +4
Idk without knowing what they're like 2 years ago +1
WW1 pretty much caused WW2 so stop that and you probably stop both 2 years ago +2
