Now for some questions:

1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?

2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ?

3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?

4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?

5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want. ?

That's okay, we can have two cafes, can't we? Besides, you have some interesting questions up there. 😉

1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?

If I didn't have to sleep, I would probably have a psychotic break by now because then I'd never be able to escape reality in any way that wasn't self-destructive. But to answer your question, I'd probably do the same thing I do now while I'm awake--check SF periodically and binge-watch TV shows.

2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ?

Meaning, what could I contribute to it? Most likely, a panic attack (assuming I even showed up).

3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?

Tough decision. I want to be able to fly, but I also want to be able to control fire. Can I fly while setting random things on fire?

4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?

What if I end up alone and it hurts so badly that I won't be able to deal with it?

5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want. ?

Mind. If I'm still technically 90, then I suppose I'm still dying soon anyway (by "body", I assume you meant looks only, not organs). So I would look like I'm 30, but I wouldn't feel like I'm 30. So there'd be no point to it. I'd rather my mind work properly.

Hey @shattered dreams . Your cafe seems more interesting than all other cafe in the past. I really like your questions. It's really exciting to answer those questions.

My answers are:-
(1) If I don't have to sleep, I would use my extra time in gaining more knowledge like study, reading books, doing research etc.
(2) A lecture on spirituality , afterlife, god related things.
(3)One superpower I would like to have is Healing power ( like healing any disease or illness or physical pain or dyformity)
(4)What if I die alone.
(5) I would like to retain the body of a 30 years old for the last 60 years of my life if I have to live upto the age of 90. Aging is my biggest fear but I don't mind in having the mind of an old man. Because an old man's kind is full of knowledge , not egoistic, caring, not greedy and detachment from worldly desires.

Hey sorry didn't see this cafe, I'm gonna tag some people so they will know about it & hopefully come here & reply to those cool q's ;) @Witty✯Sarcasm @Cynic Goat @1964dodge @Walker @Lane @Lux @foreverforgotten @LonelyHiker @sinking_ship @extraterrestrialone @Innocent Forever @Baywasp @Auri @Sad Elf @FlamingoWrangler @Nick @Kira @JDot @BlackOpium @cots @britishbloke @KM76710 @Sunspots @RCee

1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?
Prob. just play more games, make collages, color (online not with actual markers or w/e though that's fun too sometimes) and I dunno can't think of anything else lol.

2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ?

Talking about my life story and my ideas about the best way to treat others in a respectful way. I don't have a heck of a lot of major, in depth knowledge about much of anything but I do enjoy talking about ideas about things anyway.

3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?

Invisibility cos that would just be way too much fun lol :)

4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?

What if I'm homeless one day? Ya it's quite a big fear of mine for sure, no idea how those who are in that kind of situation survive even 1 day let alone longer than that. It must be one of the most miserable possible ways to exist.

5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want. ?

I guess the mind of a 30 year old but only in terms of ability to be open-minded and having the presence of mind, I'd want it to get wiser with my years on the planet though but ya not where I had memory loss or things like that.

now for some answers @shattered dreams and thanks for the tag @JMG .

1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?
well lots of time i already don’t sleep even though i do have to, so isn’t that kind of similar? and what do i do? i stay in bed wishing i’d finally fall asleep or start looking around on SF or checking if that elusive email has finally arrived. but maybe if i came to terms with all the extra time, i’d write, do some kind of visual art, speak out in support of improved and more open minded forward thinking healthcare and mental healthcare and an insuranceless system that actually provides help for all rather than profit for some rich crooks with smart lawyers.


2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ? how to demos on things i know how to do and love doing.

3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?
i already have the super power! the power of the dandelion!

4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?
“what if the universe and all that is in it were real?”

5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want? i’d take the mind. i mean i’d retain the mind. you are going to let me start all over again at just born, right shattered dreams? otherwise i’m already quite well on the way without having had the benefit of using my choice. with the mind i could do the things i need to do anyway so that is what i would like to go with. when do we get started?

1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?
I would dance the night away, as I often do, at the expense of my work the next day. Which, of course, if sleep wasn't necessary for the body, it wouldn't matter. I love music, it takes me to a whole different time and place and allows me to enter a dream world, if I've had a bad day.

2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ?
Poverty and removing the discrimination from people in this predicament. Both in general life, and in the workplace, more specifically. That, and spiritualism and multiple lives, my beliefs on that. And, how our purpose and well-being is all intrinsically linked to that and religion, in my opinion only. I would share my views.



3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?
Time travel. I love history, so would love to go back in time and experience, or re-experience different eras. I would also like to re-visit events of this life and spend more time with certain people and correct mistakes. Not keen on heading too distantly into the future though, personally. It's not my cup of tea.


4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?
The next chapter of my life, actually. I'm just unsure of where to turn and the results for each scenario I am presented with.



5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want. ?
It would depend entirely on the strength of both mind and body, respectively. I'd like to retain a decent level of each, but as that isn't an option, I would say 'body', just because I'd want to remain active and independent until the end of my life. That said, I would have loved to have the ability to keep formulating new ideas to help the community until the end, but I feel without a body being healthy (in the latter stages of life you extent it to) that might incorporate the brain anyway, so I'd have lost out in both senses. That was a tricky one lol.

Excellent questions. I enjoyed that! *hug
 
#12
1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?
stargaze or watch lots of extra youtube videos and movies *rofl

2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ?
the jurassic park franchise, anxiety, depression, youtube or social media in general and the effects of it, maybe astrology.. not sure I've memorized quite enough of it to reach 40 mins though

3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?
either invisibility or being able to erase memories- my own, and others. Not for anything cunning, just like I really want people to forget stupid things I've said or mistakes I've made or arguments we've had etc *facepalm

4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?
what if __________ really is in love with me? *shy*blue

5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want. ?
the body! I'm terrified of looking old

I think it was just geared to age 30 and 90 so i would say pretty much any starting age, up to 30, if that makes any sense

1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?
If I could stay up for that long and not see weird things...lol. Well I would probably get more done for sure.

2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ?
Maybe writing, although public speaking would drive me nuts.

3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?
To teleport anywhere I wanted to.

4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?
What if I never find anyone?

5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want. ?
The mind I think. It wouldn't matter to me much if my body was slower and more wrinkled, I'd rather stay sharp in my old age.

1. if you didn't have to sleep what would you do with the extra time ?

It's a scary thought. I look at work as giving me something to do (as well as $$) during the day so more extra time would devastate me. Also as someone else mentioned sleep is an escape so I would miss that,.

2. What could you give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation ? I've learned recently I can't speak my views since they are politically incorrect so i don't know.

3. if you could have 1 super power, what would it be ?

I think I like the idea of teleporting although I would take healing second.

4. Name the biggest " what if " in your mind. ?

What if I were homeless scares me. Though fortunately I am far from it. It has been a staple in my mind. most of my life.

5. if you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want. ? The mind of course. Both have drawbacks of course but fortunately we all die.

My 40 minute presentation would be on how I had to give a 40 minute presentation with no preparation and yet was expected to speak.for 40 minutes but what can they really expect of me? I mean, with no time to prepare and all... it would have to be spur of the moment. So maybe I can talk about....

You get the gist :) I might throw in a few facts about education, raising children, love and care, time. Etc.
