Anyone of those soldiers up on Little Round Top, July 2nd, 1863.

If you could go back to one particular year of your life which one would it be?

My lady.

What is your real honest dream job, if you could truly do anything....
Setting up shop in a small Allegheny mountain town and making Windsor chairs using only hand tools, and harvesting the trees for the lumber myself.

What is the most significant act of kindness, selflessness, and altruism you have personally witnessed.

Low volume/ high profit (or is this a trick question?)

If you could steal $1,000,000 from an old lady without anybody seeing or knowing you did it, would you still do it?

Oh man, after that thread about finding the money in the walls and the dispute between the H/O and the contractor, I'm afraid to answer this one.
There could be a new survey and everything. But here goes.

Honest answer: No. Conscience would be one reason, Karma the other.
I think I would have an innate sense that the money would probably lead to some sort of bad thing if I took it. Tempting as it would be.
30 years ago, I would have answered yes, I'd take the cash.

If you were traveling in your car at the speed of light, and turned on the headlights, would they work?

I think they would turn on, but not project the light foward of your current position.
If you were traveling south on main street, and a semi traveling west on Maple blew the stop sign at Main and Maple and made a left in front of the yellow VW bug waiting for the black Hearse to pass, while a fire truck approached with its lights and sirens on, what is the name of the Smiths pet dog?

If it was even physically possible (right now its not - ask Einstein), the answer is yes. The question would then be would they light the way for you? Well that depends on when you turn the lights on. If it was while you were accelerating you would still see the light as it light travels at a constant speed. If it was after you reach the speed of light, the headlights would work, but as you are going as fast as light, you would not see it.

Another physics question - is it physically possible for a fighter plane to shoot itself down using its own cannon?

EDIT: Sgt.Grumpy types faster

Heres his question - you can ignore mine if you like

Yes by flying at a straight 90 degree up and shooting

I would "double clutch", hit the gas and then check for lipstick residue!

Who's your favorite stand-up comic of all time?


PS .. I hope the tranny isn't a stick shift. :laughing:
