1) Single Occupant private vehicles are banned except for two-wheelers. Do you carpool, bike, walk, use public transport, risk it or something else? That's what dead hobos and taxidermists are for.

2) Turquoise or Teal? Teal, aquamarine or teal would have been a harder choice for me.

3) Does the weather ever give you goosebumps? When lightning strikes nearby.

4) Citrus or Pine scented cleaning products? Pine, I like Christmas trees too.

5) Finish the limerick, please

Had given it all she was worth

6) Wear do you register at on the grammar nazi scale (1-10) ? I'm on a sliding scale proportional to the flagrance and disparity.

7) Do you like Pina Coladas? When I'm getting caught in the rain.

8) Which legal age limit is the most ridiculous in your country? Socialized medicine.

9) Which baby animal is the cutest? Lamb.

Inexperienced tourists on scooters spell disaster, I walk or take the bus. Maybe a taxi if I'm feeling spendy. (edit: Hmm looking back, I think I misunderstood this one. we're not talking about Bermuda here, we're maybe talking about HOV restricted highways? I'll usually carpool then.)
2) Turquoise or Teal?
Teal is the real deal.
3) Does the weather ever give you goosebumps?
It's the top cause of my goosebumps.
4) Citrus or Pine scented cleaning products?
Citrus.
5) Finish the limerick, please

I read this three times before I saw what you did there. I'm a one. Unless a know-it-all is trying to look smarter than somebody and they make a mistake.
7) Do you like Pina Coladas?
I don't know. But if I did, I would tell my own lovely lady instead of kicking her to the curb.
8) Which legal age limit is the most ridiculous in your country?
Maybe marriage.
9) Which baby animal is the cutest?
Kitten.
10) What is the cutest animal you have eaten?
Probably a 22 week old dairy calf. I was served veal as a kid numerous times.

Wow--Mississippi considers 21 the standard age, below which you need parental consent. I got married at 22.

I was going to answer "Harley," but I see Bruce beat me to it.

2) Turquoise or Teal?

Turquoise, of course. Here in New Mexico we paint around our windows and doors with turquoise in order to keep bad spirits out (a batch of bathtub gin gone wrong can make you go blind).

3) Does the weather ever give you goosebumps?

Only on days that end with "y."

4) Citrus or Pine scented cleaning products?

Citrus

5) Finish the limerick, please

Went through hell on earth

6) Wear do you register at on the grammar nazi scale (1-10) ?

If 1=complete anarchy and 10=a sieg heil salute, I'm a 1.

7) Do you like Pina Coladas?

I like drinking wine on my cape (or anyone else's).

8) Which legal age limit is the most ridiculous in your country?

PG-13

9) Which baby animal is the cutest?

Kitten

10) What is the cutest animal you have eaten?

Lamb - they're so cute that my mouth waters just looking at them

Having never even had a single driving lesson, I'mma walk or take a bus like I normally do:P


2) Turquoise or Teal?

I don't much like either - maybe it's the names. I don't like the way either of those sound.

3) Does the weather ever give you goosebumps?

Yup - nothing like being on the top of a hill during a thunder and lightning storm.

4) Citrus or Pine scented cleaning products?

Depends. Citrus for the kitchen, pine for the bathroom.

5) Finish the limerick, please

she said the new mater
was now blessed with additional girth.

6) Wear do you register at on the grammar nazi scale (1-10) ?




7) Do you like Pina Coladas?

Yes, but the feeling is not mutual

8) Which legal age limit is the most ridiculous in your country?

voting age - 18 - and also minimum wage is banded by age. Both of those are morally reprehensible to me.

A kid can serve in the army, legally have sex, marry (with parental permission) all at 16 - it is perfectly possible to have a 17 year old who is a soldier, a father and a husband - but can't vote in the country he is contributing to.

A 17 year old will also be employed at a wage much lower than someone of 25 even if they are doing an identical job. That is discrimination. If a male 25 year old and a female 25 year old were doing the same job with the same length of time in the company and the man was being paid significantly higher than the woman this would be grounds for legal action. But right now if a company were to hire a 25 year old and a 17 year old on the same day, at minimum wage rates, they would be offered different wages.

At the same time benefits for people under 25 have been cut to the bone - can't get help with your rent except in exceptional circumstances (such as a care leaver) because the assumption is that if you can't afford to rent a place, you can stay with your parents...and of course, if your minimum wage is less than 2/3 of the adult minimum wage how would you be able to afford to rent anywhere?


I'll stop now...

9) Which baby animal is the cutest?

Carrot

10) What is the cutest animal you have eaten?

Rabbit

Continue legally driving my car to work in a rural area.

It isn't necessary to insert a space before the question mark.

8) Which legal age limit is the most ridiculous in your country?
