Would You Rather

Would you rather have a one-minute conversation with your past self or with your future self?

Benji: Definitely my future self, because I feel there’s not a lot you can actually do about your past, but your future is still yet to be told.

Sean: I’m going to flip it. I would definitely talk to my past self just for pure upside. I would take 60 seconds of efficient stock information, like world trends and I would go back to my past self and I would just hook it up for me and my family.

Would you rather be able to see in the dark, or see through walls?

Benji: Definitely see through walls because I’m usually sleeping at night. So seeing through walls would be amazing.

Sean: I totally agree with Benji. I’m always thinking of strategy. I’m like what kind of information am I not allowed to see that I can start getting with this and then how can I tie that into getting results for something.

Would you rather know what your pets think of you or what your high school teachers thought of you?

Benji: Well, I don’t currently have a pet right now. I think it would just be entertaining to know what my teachers thought of me because I wasn’t the model student.

Sean: My wife and I actually had two Chihuahuas. I don’t think I would choose teachers because I want to be encouraged. I always like good news, and I don’t know if that would be good news.
