  1. Revealing questions. My values really came evident with most of my answers. I had a problem with Micheal Jordan or Mohammed Ali, though, as I don’t tend to enjoy punchers. Don’t like basketball too much, either. So I guess I’ll take that lifetime off to float around the universe…

  2. But…all these people, though famous, still had a life with anguish and pain just like us all! And no, I would not like to have been an Indian in any former life. (although I think I was. Algonquin actually)
    Hope your day was good Jeff and quit thinkin’ so hard ya idiot.

    1. Good point about the anguish and pain. And Indians had a tough life, it’s true. And you last comment made me Laugh Out Loud. Thank you. I needed that.
