Amy!! That was easy.
I remember all of my teachers. It's quite scary. The one I will mention here was Mrs. Smith. She was my 6th grade teacher. She was Italian, with a thick accent. She was older, and had this freakishly large backside. So, she didn't walk; she kind of waddled. I liked her though. She would tell us stories from Greek myths.
I would choose to create a random section. Every week, it was something else. One week it would be French Art (you would run that one, Courtney!), and the next week it would be all about baking pies (Alma). Whoever I felt was the "expert" in that subject would run it for the week.
A man comes to you with a business proposition. You have the 5 million dollars needed to fund the venture. The business will be highly successful and make you extremely wealthy. However, you will go down in history as a horrible person who perpetuated human rights abuses through your company. Your name becomes synonymous with malice and greed.
Knowing that, do you still fund this mans business venture?
Who's up next? Pick me...
Where's the thief?
People are celebrating with the family yo!
This is a great question. I love history, so very hard to nail down.
Music related, I would say I would want to go back in time and see the Beatles. Not at a big venue, but at a small club when they were starting out. Knowing how they turned out, seeing them in their early stages would be amazing.
I'm a big Civil War buff, so I would want to go back in time and sit on the hill watching the battle of Bull Run, as some people did. Little did they realize how long, and how siginificant that war would become.
Last, I would want to go back and travel along side Ernest Hemingway. I am a fan of his writing ( I know most aren't). The guy went everywhere, did everything, and met everyone there was to meet at the time. Plus, having a conversation with they guy would be quite interesting.
all your base, shut the fuck up, nobody's asking you anything.
I think what frozen pigrim meant to say was:
All Your Base, while we appreciate the introduction, that's not what this thread is intended for. Good to meet you, but please read the thread before posting. Thank you and I hope the holidays are going well for you.
Here, all your base, follow me...I'll show you to the senior section. You can sit next to me if you want.
It's all good. I'm old enough to have dumped all my angst, but I can remember. I should have read the thread.....and he did turn me on to Shpongle.
So who's next?
but... that doesn't happen until tomorrow so...
Batman or Superman?
You have to fight in a cage match to the death with one leader from history (you're guaranteed to win). Who do you battle with, why & what's your finishing move?
What is the one lesson you learned that you don't want your kids to learn the hard way?
You get to create a super band drawing from any musician ever. Who plays what and what is it's sound?
In the cartoon vein:
Jack Nicholson Joker or Heath Ledger Joker, and why?
Also: You re going to live in a one room house for the rest of your life, completely separated from the world in all possible ways. Where do you choose for this house to be built in nature?
you are stuck in a solid metal house with no doors and no windows, with only a mirror and a wooden dresser inside. how do you escape?
Hitler, because I cannot think of any other leader in history that is synonymous with all that is evil.
My finishing move would be bleaching his moustache, and sticking him in the heart with a nice pointy Star of David.
Lesson. Wow...another good question. I would say be careful with money, and spend it wisely. I got myself in trouble at a young age with debt, and it took a long time to recover.
Definitely on the coast somewhere. On a cliff, overlooking the ocean. Warhington, or Oregon in the US. Ireland, or Spain elsewhere.
I'm bummed I haven't stepped into this thread until now. lots of good stuff in here.
