  1. I'm not really very imaginative, so what I'd probably like it to be my life exactly as it is when I'm alive, only with a higher concentration of nice things happening. Not so high that I can expect anything I want to happen, but high enough that I can think to myself "wow, lots of nice things have happened recently".
  2. I don't think they'll particularly care what your GCSEs are, as long as you do (fairly) well in them. If you're really worried, just stick to as traditional a set as you can.
  3. I avoid killing anything if I can help it. I've killed insects and the like before, but I don't remember doing it deliberately. I've fished before but I don't do that any more. I eat meat. I'd stop if it would make any difference, but it's just too complicated and big an issue for me to make a difference on my own by becoming vegetarian.
  4. For most of the year I walk in and out to lectures, which is just a bit over a mile each way, so not taking into account any other walking I might do that's about two and a bit miles per day on average. I go through phases of swimming a bit once per week. I think that the 2 hours of PE that children might get per week is enough; I'd rather their time be spent learning something more useful*. ...with the way things were at my school at least, it's a bit of a moot point because the extra time spent in a different lesson wouldn't actually be any more useful after all. *I did learn some handy stuff in PE, but the amount of time it took me to learn it wouldn't even stretch to a whole lesson. The rest of them were sometimes fun, but pretty much pointless in the scheme of things.
  5. Fair enough, although by tasks being completed I meant to encompass situations being resolved. Regardless, some people I know do pray for specific things to happen. I'm not, in case people are misunderstanding this, questioning whether or not it's right to pray, or whether it works or not. I'm just telling the OP about some people's habits.
  6. I thought it was clear that they meant it had been psychosomatic. I'm not sure I like the connotation of "argument", either: although what I wrote was in a literal sense an argument, I have no intention of causing an argument (in a different sense of the word). Not really. If one prays and asks for task X to be completed, and instead one simply "feels better" (perhaps because a feeling of responsibility has been removed), yet the task remains incomplete, then the purpose of the prayer wasn't completed -- the person praying has just been mollified.
  7. No, I don't. I'm agnostic, but not in the sense that I'd "give it a shot in case". A few Christian friends seem to be divided into two types: those who pray seemingly out of habit (because "it's something one just does"), and those who actively think to themselves "I know, I'll pray to see if God does something about this...". In a conversation recently, two friends who used to be Christian but no longer are were explaining how they used to feel better after praying because they felt as if something were being done (even if nothing happened).
  8. Whenever I've encountered little kids in relationships, it's been because they thought it was the "right thing to do". I'm not going to deny that young people can have complicated emotions... but I've never encountered a couple under say 16 that I could believe were in love. That's not to say it's impossible -- just that I've never seen it.
  9. Mine is lasers and explosives-hacking. One of my friends is a knife-man, and together we make up a crime fighting duo the likes of which the world has often seen.
  10. Mine's 83. I got tested when I was a bit younger.
  11. I'd thought that the cause of most abortion debates is that it isn't their life, but someone else's that they're affecting. On topic: I don't have anything against it in theory, nor do I find it particularly "disgusting" or anything like that. Unfortunately the vast majority of the individuals interested in this that I've encountered (only a few in real life, lots on TV through stuff like documentaries*) have been .... well, haven't been my sort of person. That's not at all to say that their wanting this was linked to their being a bit (a LOT) weird, or anything like that; just that the few I've had a chance to encounter in real life have been people I just don't like (before and after). To clarify: I don't have any predisposition towards them any more than to anyone else -- I've just met (and heard of) the unfortunate ones. Edit: to further clarify: I'm all for people doing it if they really want to. *yeah "documentaries" :-w
  12. I had noticed that at least one zip I possess has YKK on it, yes. I didn't realise that was what it was about.
  13. Haven't you had the famous Polish Reference-to-Sketch Curry? Then you've never lived.
  14. I like curry --- I do. But... now that we've got the recipe, is there really any need for them to stay?
