    What does looks have to do with it? My post.

    I would never increase by decreasing other positive qualities. If there was a way of increasing and not sacrificing other attributes that would be OK

    Because Ken mentioned looks as a positive quality.

    If you could increase your positive attributes (such as intelligence, looks, athletic ability, strength, personality, creativity, and sense of humor) by decreasing other positive qualities, which qualities would you increase, and which would you decrease by the same percentage?


    To me this reads would you be willing to lose some positive abilities to gain others and my answer was no. If it is a positive ability than it is needed and I will not decrease or increase an attributes I might think more important at this moment in time.

    To me it reads WHICH attributes would you increase and WHICH would you decrease.

    Doesn't matter though, it's not a quiz. :)

    There's no right or wrong answers to any of it.

    I agree with Ike, I think we should keep trying to strengthen all our attributes. You can't have too much of a good thing!;)

    Actually, I don't think I would change anything. I'm pretty comfortable in the skin I'm in. There are people who are better looking, smarter and stronger but there is only one me. :D

    Okay, this is more of a legal question, but here goes. Are zombies in the United States required to sign up for healthcare under the Affordable Care Act, which requires all Americans to be covered by healthcare? Can they vote?

    In the event that you don't consider that question to be a serious one, worthy of an answer, I'll pose another. If you are invisible for one 24-hour period, what would you do?

    I didn't sign up for the affordable care act and I wasn't even fined so I'm sure zombies wouldn't have to worry either.

    There's nothing I can think of doing visible for 24 hrs, so nothing invisible either.

    Invisible for 24 hours? That means I could get into the white house undetected, right?:D

    Perhaps it's time for a little caution here. ;)
