Sadly, I haven't had time for irrelevant poll questions in a good while. But I have some today, so...



[Poll #1411667]



ETA: Feel free to ignore the massive typo on the fifth question. I obviously meant to say "forgot to mention" not "forgiot mentionnne" or whatever the hell my hands decided would be a good idea to type instead. :P

And thanks for taking. :)

A million dollars is an aawwwwwful lot of money, provided you're frugal (which I am). I'd be willing to do quite a lot of things as long as they don't have permanent consequences. (Posing nude I would consider to have permanent consequences.) And hell, even then. I did check "Carry someone else's baby" and I'd seriously consider giving up one of my fingers or toes, provided I didn't have to do the cutting myself. I'm way too much of a wuss when it comes to pain.

Oh, and a disclaimer: I'd be willing to run a marathon. I'm not necessarily able to. XD

Yeah I'm probably crazy for checking off the baby one, but ... dude, a million dollars O_O

Hahahaha I know right?

Oh yeah, and I just thought to add: I WOULD eat the excrement, but I'd be too worried about bacteria and risk of complications from that.

Well, but it's "run" a marathon, not "win" it - I'd sure as hell do it, who cares if it takes me ten hours instead of three like the pros XD

If you're not able to, that could end up having permanent consequences (injury etc.). But it also could not.

I'd seriously consider giving up one of my fingers or toes, provided I didn't have to do the cutting myself. I'm way too much of a wuss when it comes to pain.

I agree with you completely. Having to cut off one of your own body parts is a very huge neurotic fear of mine. >.>

I don't know why balut is apparently grosser to me than excrement, but it is. Huh. (Also, what kind of quantities are we talking about? This might be clear from Survivor context, but I don't watch the show...)

I think my dividing line for the "$1 million" question -- in addition to whether or not I could do something safely -- is whether it's something I consider morally... difficult, I guess? I don't want to be a person who has killed an animal or hurt a human for money, so I didn't click those (this answer would probably be different if I really needed the money, which I currently do not).

I actually enjoyed being pregnant, and I think people who act as surrogate mothers are doing something really important, so I would consider that one. (Weirdly, I'd rather act as surrogate mother than donate an egg.)

It's a slimy cold bird fetus. You'd have to chew on the bones and ewwwww. Excrement (see it as extra smelly dirt with a pinch more toxins and bacteria) is preferable to that.

Date: 2009-06-05 11:09 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hamsterwoman.livejournal.com
EWWWWW indeed. And, yeah, I guess I do kind of look at excrement that way. Also, having had to change diapers has sort of inured me to excrement. But I've never had to handle slimy cold dead bird fetuses (thank god!)

Date: 2009-06-08 05:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deeplyunhip.livejournal.com
Not to me. Most of us eat birds and eggs, so you can think that the fetus is just some sort of disgusting halfway point. With shit...it's shit. I'm sorry, but smelly dirt is sooo much better, there's no comparison (yes, I'm pretty sure I ate dirt a few times as a child :P). You're probably just insensitive to the horrors of excrement as a future doctor. ;)

From: [identity profile] cloud-wolf.livejournal.com
LOL. Well, I didn't click excrement so there's that. Also, halfformed fetuses that don't live kinda bug me. :|

In Survivor episodes, the quantity varies. Usually they'll have to eat just one at the beginning of a "gross food challenge", but there's been at least one challenge where they've been expected to eat like, five.

I think my dividing line for the "$1 million" question -- in addition to whether or not I could do something safely -- is whether it's something I consider morally... difficult, I guess? I don't want to be a person who has killed an animal or hurt a human for money, so I didn't click those

Yep, I felt the same way for a lot of those. For some reason, the first thing to come to mind for "non-human mammal" is a kitten, and I just...don't want to be a kitten killer.

I can see how being pregnant might be enjoyable, totally, but I don't think I would enjoy it if I were doing it with a child that wasn't my own. I'm not sure how I feel about egg donation, but in my poverty, I keep thinking about it more and more... >.>

Maybe it's because I'm in an angry mood but I'd have no trouble punching someone in the face for a million dollars.

Icebirds are pretty. They're pretty rare here, but there's one of them who hangs out near our ditch.

My family goes camping every year. When I was younger our camping trips were three weeks long.

And yes, icebirds are quite pretty. :)

It depends on the mammal, I'm sorryyyy I feel awful but one time I hit a squirrel... I really really didn't want to or mean to and I tried to stop but there is NO SHOULDER on Highway 9 and there was a car coming in the other lane and omg omg omg :[ I would take $1 million for that. HAHAHA. But yeah :\

I agree I would have someone ELSE cut the finger for me, but could not do it myself ugh no way.

And I didn't check it either but I'd also pose in Playboy AS LONG AS it wasn't too explicit. I mean I've seen some centerfolds that are mostly just legs and shit and hell yeah I'd do that FOR A MILLION DOLLARS (that is not what they pay though), plus I have a nice rear end, but eh I don't think I need go go showin' my business around. I would be much more inclined to pose nude for art or some shit; I'm not ashamed of my body or anything but I don't know if I want to it to like intentionally cause boners for a bunch of guys. FOR SOME REASON, the thought of guys just jacking off to my plain ol' rear end also is not as bad as thinking of them doing it to like... my actual crotch I DON'T KNOW OMG it seems so weird hahaha.

I would eat the balut, but oh my god, the cockroaches... I run screaming in the other direction when I see ONE. Not exaggerating. Even just thinking of them turns my stomach. Ugh, ugh, ugh.

I don't think I could ever kill a non-human mammal... not even a mouse. If I was in danger from it, then I could do it in self-defense (obviously not referring to the mouse here), but I couldn't just kill it. And yes, I eat meat, and yes, I realize it's hypocritical. :(

I don't know if I could carry someone else's baby... it would be really hard to give it up at the end. If I had already had children of my own, it would be a possibility, I suppose. I do have a lot of respect and admiration for people who do act as surrogate mothers, though!

Heh - I 'm sure your position on this would change if you were in a situation where you were in danger from STARVING and whatever animal was your only food, so I don't think it's all *that* hypocritical. ;)

Hm, come think about it, I've checked so few million dollar options XD I mean, a million... that's an awful lot of money. And I *have* killed a non human mammal after all... although it was just a small mouse. It really depends on the mammal. If it's something I'd eat, I could manage (sorry, piggies), but I can't stand the idea of deliberately killing, idk, a cat. Which is terribly hypocritical of me, I know, but that's my gut reaction.

I'd totally do the Playboy centerfold - not because I think I'm playmate material (lol) but because I got nude pictures taken already, haha. That's what happens when you go to art school and get used to nude models? It's strange because I'm very private and totally not extroverted, but I'm not too self conscious about my own nudity *shrugs* Porn is a bit too much... maybe. A million dollars, guys. It might depend on the kind of porn? *lolz*

NO WAY I'm: estranging my family, selling a kidney, or go skydiving without knowing shit about it. I know I might do, but irrationally say "hell no" to: inflicting permanent injuries, eat excrement, eat live cockroaches (it's the live part that really... NO). I'm a bit on the fence about the finger/toe question. Kim, did you watch Four rooms recently? XD I also suspend my judgment on carrying someone else's baby part, beacuse I've suspended my judgment on: me ever having a baby, period. Decisions, decisions...

Date: 2009-06-10 09:27 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deeplyunhip.livejournal.com
I don't even know what Four Rooms is, but I have an irrationally big fear of somehow being forced to cut off any part of my own body, so I think I'll stay away from it for the moment. :P

And yeah, killing kitties for a million dollars is not my thing, either. :/

Okay so my stuffed animals are as follows:

Tyrion the One Eyed Snow Bunny Cyclops - This (http://cool-toy-spot.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/baby-gloomy-bunny-outfit-plush-doll.jpg) Gloomy Bear doll, only imagine it with an eyepatch over it's left eye because my doggie ate the eye out >: [He used to be named Tyrion the Snow Bunny]

Robo-Zoom Tyrion Force 5 - This (http://media.photobucket.com/image/robot%20gloomy%20bear/japanla/robotgloomy.jpg) gloomy bear doll :]

Germy Bear - A stuffed bear with an American and German flag on the front.

Dead People - A Neopet petpet that survived an attack from my dog without a scratch on him. He did, however, die. And hence his name.

Pink Stripe/s - His name depends on the say. If it is Monday or Friday, he is Pink Stripe. If it is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday he is Pink Stripes. It's a white tiger with Pink Stripes [durr] donated from the Frannie Peabody Center (http://www.peabodycenter.org/) which is an organization to help poor people with AIDS in Maine.*

Dog - A cocker spaniel dog plushie, donated from the same company.

Jesus J├Ęsus the Mountain Lion [alias: Walrey] - A walrus plushie that my friend gave to me because Walrus are my favorite animal. However, we discovered that his tag said 'MOUNTAIN LION' What are the chances? XD

Skwisgaar the Herpes - Herpes. (http://www.scienceartandmore.com/ProductImages/gia/874665004464.jpg) Literally.

Big Blue Horse - A weird shaped animal with four legs in a row on his stomach that vaguely reminds me of a horse that I picked up in a run down dollar store once. He loves me and I love him :]

Iggy Pop Pop Dazzle - A beanie baby lizard that I bought at Good Will for a few cents~

German Micky - My friend got me a micky mouse doll all dressed in a German uniform... For Hanukkah.


*Don't worry, Jeremy doesn't have AIDS. My aunt does, and the stuffies were donated to her for Christmas. She gave them to me cause she knew I like them.

Your stuffed animal collection is really impressive! I particularly like the story behind German Mickey.

Skwisgaar the Herpes - Herpes. Literally.

I have Dysentery from Giant Microbes, but it doesn't have a cool name. I just call it Stomach Ache. (My daughter has a Yeast from there, which is totally adorable, and she did use to sleep with it.)

Oh pleaaaaseee, balut is for sissies. It's not bad at all. Not really a favorite of mine but it's more tolerable than you think. =p

Yeah, really, it's tolerable. Our dogs love it. The only reason I didn't check that box was because of the live cockroaches. =p

It's very famous here in our country. :) It's one of the most common street foods. Whenever I eat it (which is rarely), I drink the soup and eat the yellow part. The white part doesn't really taste good.

I'd be willing to punch several people in the face for a million dollars. I have a rather long list of people who deserve it.

Also, I hate camping. I've done it more often than I care to think about, and it sucked every time. It ALWAYS rains.

To not seem like a complete psycho... If I'm willing to consider cutting off my pinky toe, I'm willing to consider breaking someone else's pinky toe as well, which counts for things they will never truly recover from if done in whatever way counts. This of course requires a volunteer, and there are plenty of masochists out there who'd want MORE than that done by a willing female. Trust me.

And you know I hate the thought of alien parasite infectation pregnancies, too.

I'd only do the two "hurt other person" ones if they were in on it; IE splitting the money or what have you. I wouldn't just walk up to a random person and hurt them or I'd get sued and probably lose more than a million.

Also, the couple of people that checked off "eat excrement" should be kicked off your friends list."

From: [identity profile] deeplyunhip.livejournal.com
I'd kick people off if they'd eat excrement for lower amounts of money, but I think a million is enough to understand where they are coming from (even I personally wouldn't do it for 1000000000000000000 dollars).
