    IMHO, Sunrise was talking about choosing to be born and not about Terese's name.
    You have been here for some 4.543 billion years. Is that good enough or you want to know your history prior to that? :)

    Why is Melbourne so much more awesome than Sydney?

    Is it because we are God's chosen?

    (Not sure which God, but clearly an awesome one)

    If you were willing to marry an older person than you, how many years difference would you allow without resenting the age difference?

    If someone gave you a million and told you it was stolen but wouldn't tell you who they got it from, would you use it differently than if they hadn't told you it was stolen?

    Is it better to drive on the left side of the road or on the side that is opposite from the left side?

    Could your family successfully pressure you into joining the French Foreign Legion?

    If you had your own radio station what music would you play on it?

    Do you believe in doughnuts with holes or doughnuts without holes in them?

    What is the darkest chocolate that can still be called candy?

    Would you rather collect coins in prison or stamps on a deserted island?

    If you could see into people's minds would you do it?

    Why have you rejected Christianity as your religion?

    What is the key truth of your religion?

    Vaisnavism is the religion for me, i have not been interested in any other religions. The key truth (to me) is that Narayana is the sublime jewel-encrusted Lord of all beings. :)

    Not so interested in me being star dust, or bits of other organisms, I was wondering if I'd been a human being before. I haven't, Terese has spoken! :D

    If you were willing to marry an older person than you, how many years difference would you allow without resenting the age difference? - I'd never resent age difference, if the man i marry is 80, but is very kind and wise, age would not matter.

    If someone gave you a million and told you it was stolen but wouldn't tell you who they got it from, would you use it differently than if they hadn't told you it was stolen?
    - No, the money can still be used in the right hands for good. However, i'd feel a little guilty and antsy using the money.

    Is it better to drive on the left side of the road or on the side that is opposite from the left side? - Both are good :D

    Could your family successfully pressure you into joining the French Foreign Legion? - i dunno, what's in it for me? :p

    If you had your own radio station what music would you play on it? - Jeepers, all sorts of music. Prog, Classical, ambient, ambient classical prog...

    Do you believe in doughnuts with holes or doughnuts without holes in them? - Doughnuts without holes is a heresy! How will I hold it right? It doesn't make any sense!

    What is the darkest chocolate that can still be called candy? - That's a real conundrum. I suppose any ordinary dark chocolate can become the darkest chocolate at night :D

    Would you rather collect coins in prison or stamps on a deserted island? - Coins in prison. At least i have company!...albeit unsavoury company :D

    If you could see into people's minds would you do it? - Only if i got immensely curious.
