question time 5

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Definitely! Or at least thought, dreamed, negotiated and planned more than I´ve done. It´s probably a bad thing but show me someone with a bit of a brain in the Western world nowadays that actually does more than he says.

If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?

Be kind and decent (think I would make a crap speaker).

If the average human lifespan was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
First reaction: have kids earlier. But second thought: Why would I struggle less with life´s decision  if life would be shorter. I mean, I wouldnt be aware of it´s shortness then, would I? Would it mean the human body would age much more rapid too? Needing a Zimmer frame by 32? And who knows if the own lifespan is not only 40 years short or less?  Not a nice question to start philosophising about...

What do we all have in common besides our genes that makes us human?
A certain amount of egoism and the instinct of self preservation. Well, same for animals...guess I answered the question incorrectly.

If you could choose one book as a mandatory read for all high school students, which book would you choose?
Impossible to narrow it down to one single book - there should be at least 50-60 books mandatory but the lazy fuckers probably wouldn´t read it anyway. When I think back of the whining about books being waaay to long and time consuming at university... and those were literature students!

Would you rather have less work or more work you actually enjoy doing?
I hardly could have less work so I guess I´d chose more work I enjoy doing.

What is important enough to go to war over?
No idea what answer is the politically correct one here.


  1. ... the lazy fuckers :D awesome!

  2. I would love to hear which books you would make mandatory for students! (It doesn't have to be all 60 if that's too long)
