Would You Rather? Part 2: Ghosts, Ego and Killing Animals

Another batch of would you rather questions

Would you rather live as a regular person in a utopia or live in dystopia but you are the supreme ruler?

In a utopia I imagine that living as a regular person is probably alright, maybe a bit dull, but no major worries. I would have to pick that.

While I can imagine that being supreme ruler would be pretty cool, if it’s a dystopia that means that there are unhappy people out there and you’d have to deal with them trying to kill you. That would suck, and also could you really enjoy knowing that you’d made the majority of people suffer for your power and comfort?

I don’t want Katniss gunning for me

I don’t think I’d do it, so yeah, I’d be a regular guy in a perfect world.

Would you rather be forced to kill a kitten or a puppy?

Damn, this is a dark one. Do I have to answer?

Are we talking forced as in one of those “unless you kill this animal the world ends” kinda deals? Because in that case I guess it would have to be, and don’t hate me for this, a puppy. What can I say, I’m a cat person,

Would you rather live in a haunted house where the ghosts ignored you and did their own thing or be a ghost in a house living out a pleasant and uneventful week of your life again and again?

Have the ghosts ignore me. I find it hard to imagine anyone picking the other option. Can you imagine having to go over the same week again and again. Having a house with some ghosts would definitely be the better option.

You would have proved that ghosts exist and could charge people to come see them. It has that going for it, while being a ghost yourself means that (a) you’d be stuck in a loop and (b) you would have to die!

Would you rather be famous for inventing a deadly new weapon or invent something that helps the world but which someone else gets credit for?

You’d have to be a serious egomaniac to go for the weapon option, wouldn’t you? I’d hope that the satisfaction of helping millions of people would be enough without the glory and I’d be happy to.watch the good without getting the credit.

 I’d rather do that than have a name cursed for inventing something that kills people.

Would you rather move to a new city/town every week or never leave the city/town you were born in?

Moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do, so sod that. Especially as I’d be moving where I didn’t know anyone. Nope, as flawed as Swansea is, I would much rather live there than have to pack my stuff up every week. And it has perks- a lot of my friends are local, I could go see the Swans and Ospreys and I know the city quite well.

Would you rather get £5 for every song you sing in public or £50 for every stranger you kiss?

As terrible as my voice is and as much as I hate performing, I would have to become a busker or karaoke regular to make that cash. I’m a happily engaged man so have no desire to kiss strangers anymore, so I’d take the singing as I’d earn more money that way.

Would you rather live under a sky with no stars at night or under a sky with no clouds during the day?

This is probably the easiest one this time around. I would pick to have no stars. While they’re pretty to look at I just think that clouds are more useful, because of rain and also the British public aren’t ready to live in constant sunshine. We’d live in a constant state of barbecues and lobster coloured workmen.

Would you rather wake up as a new random person every year and be in control of them for a year, or one day a week go into a stranger’s body but have no control?

As appealing as living as someone else might seem, I think constantly shifting every year would be a drag. So, I guess I’d rather just go into someone else for one day a week as an observer. It might be frustrating if they were making bad choices or doing things you disagree with, but it might be interesting to see the world from a fresh angle.

Disagree with my choices? You know what to do. BETEO.
