1. What's your least favorite mode of transportation? Driving. Seriously, I will take delays and forced disrobing to get on a plane over sitting in line at a stoplight. I'm too used to cycling right up to the front of the line!
2. What sound do you love? My wife laughing until she cries. Also, my son laughing.
3. If you could chose to stay any age forever, what age would it be? 32 wasn't so bad, but neither is 34.
4. If you were immortal for a day what would you do? Ride, and then go play with my son. Not creative, I know.
5. If you could know the answer to any question, what would you ask? (no answer, the thread would get sent to P&R)
6. What celebrity do you get mistaken for? Never happens.
7. Do you own a pair of converse? No. Never.
8. Have you ever kicked a vending machine? Shaken, sure. Kicked, maybe.
9. How do you eat Oreos? By layers... but it's been a while.
10. Do you wear your shoes in/around the house? No.
11. How many phones/cell phones are in your house? 2 active, one left in airplane mode for my son to play with, one spare and one ancient dead one for my son to play with. 5 total? And one wired phone, so 6.
12. How do most people spell your name? Correctly, but the next person who spells it Benjiman dies.
13. Do you return your cart? Yes.
14. What's the last thing you purchased? Lunch on campus with the family yesterday. Cuban Missile Crisis Burrito for me, Chicken Flautas for the boy, and a Cali Veggie Bowl for Mrs. A.
15. Do your siblings ever purchase things for you? Yeah, we get stuff from Virginia and France on occasion.

1. What's your least favorite mode of transportation?
Being sliced paper thin in a giant deli slicer, stuffed into hundreds of envelopes, and mailed first class.
2. What sound do you love?
Quiet. And yes, quiet is a sound.
3. If you could chose to stay any age forever, what age would it be?
I don't see aging as particularly distasteful, nor is "being a bigger number" depressing. So I guess I'd have to say that whatever age I am when I die, I'd like to be that age from then on. No sense aging without a conscious mind to experience it, after all.
4. If you were immortal for a day what would you do?
Groundhog Day. Try out different things to experience what death feels like, without the pesky detail of it being permanent.
5. If you could know the answer to any question, what would you ask?
Any question would be likely to backfire (Like in your example, what if The Answerer Of All Things says that no, your children won't always be happy and healthy? Then what?), so I'd probably abstain, and live with the mysteries of life like everyone else.
6. What celebrity do you get mistaken for?
None.
7. Do you own a pair of converse?
Of course. One to wear, and one for when this pair wears out, should that ever happen. Several pairs of extra laces, too.
8. Have you ever kicked a vending machine?
Probably not. What good would that do other than hurting my foot?
9. How do you eat Oreos?
In quantities excessive enough that I can't allow myself to purchase them.
10. Do you wear your shoes in/around the house?
Last thing to go on when I leave, first to come off when I get home.
11. How many phones/cell phones are in your house?
In active use? One. All-inclusive, about 8-10, including a circa 1930 rotary phone.
12. How do most people spell your name?
Incorrectly.
13. Do you return your cart?
Mine along with any others along the way.
14. What's the last thing you purchased?
Groceries on Monday.
15. Do your siblings ever purchase things for you?
Yes.

Well, if we're going with "most people," it's probably more like 你-的-名-字.

I thought about that, but what if they said no they will get hit by a car on a certain date, and I could prevent it or other such obstacles.
