Do you believe in the death penalty like all the good people do ? If not why ?
Some people can't be trusted to live in society without seriously harming others, and it's my opinion that prisons should be used to teach and rehabilitate those who commit crimes, not house people who are lethal until they die a natural death. However, based on human bias, human error, and past news stories about inmates exhonerated after decades in jail, I'm also sure that not everyone on death row is guilty, and still others deserve more lenient sentences than death.

If you could enroll in a PhD program, with your tuition paid in full by a mysterious benefactor, what would you study โ€” and why?
I think it would make sense the most sense to study general psychology; mastering psychology might be the closest humans can currently come to mindreading. It would be extremely useful to understand how our own minds and those around us operated.

A close second choice is child psychology, I think that information would make one an incredibly informed and prepared parent.

Do you think weโ€™re designed for monogamy? (Why or why not?)
From the standpoint of taking on life together, polygamy does make more sense- more incomes, more eyes to watch the kids, more hands to do the housework, etc. Emotionally though, we feel safer being the single most important person in someone's life, being irreplacable.

Would you rather be the best player on a horrible team or the worst player on a great team?
Worst player on a great team. People tend to rise to the level of those they're surrounded by, and even if you don't have the time or the skills to rise to their level, you get a front row seat people better than you perform.

Today the first female driver for my company is a fact. I think she will do great. But I noticed her demands were a lot less than the males that apply. I give her the same benefits as the others.. but still. Who is to blame that women earn less really?
You're absolutely right, a large part fo the wage gap is women not negotiating for themselves- it's not all nefarious bosses trying to intentionally pay women less. It's been proven that women underestimate their own worth while men overestimate their own worth.

Do you think people throw words like homophobic islamaphobic antisemitic racist ect about to much without it actually been justified especially when it suits there own narrative
Hate words refer to people's motivations and perceptions, both concious and unconscious. Just like with racism and sexism, it can be hard for the person on the receiving end to know whether or not they're being treated badly because of their identify. Of course, using these words is an easy way to produce internet traffic or invoke a response among political followers, but it's also literally matter of not being telepathic.

'Homophobic' is definately misused. You're not AFRAID of gays; you're uneducated, or you're willfully prioritizing your comfort or your percieved superiority over another populations' happiness.

Do you think a lot of people on kiwi make out they are far more liberal on kiwi than they actuality are just to fit in
Why would anyone lie from behind a computer screen? Isn't that the beauty of social media? You aren't being forced to answer Kiwi questions. Why would you lie in a voluntary response?

A friend asks to borrow some money for a lottery ticket, this ticket wins the jackpot. Do you expect any money from your winning friend?
Not unless we agreed upon it ahead of time. Once I lent them the money, it was theirs to spend. If they'd used it for their mortgage payment, that wouldn't mean I could claim a percentage of their house, would it? All they own me is the money they borrowed.

What's your thoughts on same sex adoption right or wrong
Keeping a child from a safe, loving, stable home because you disagree with the adult's love life is dispicable. Politicians who prioritize their own religious beliefs or their constituents' religious beliefs over voting for safe and loving homes should be run out of office immediately.

What is something that doesn't make sense to you, no matter how long you think about it?
How so many hundreds of millions of people are convinced to blindly follow religion, even when it's laws are interpreted to demean them. What I really don't understand is how so many of those who voluntarily follow organized religion are well-read and have been taught to think critically.

Do you consider yourself a feminist?
Hell yes. I'm human, why wouldn't I believe that all humans deserve to be treated equally? It's ridiculous that we even ask people whether they're a Feminist- we should just ask them whether they consider themselves a decent human being.

What's something that you don't mind that everyone else seems to condemn?
The baby-boomer generation in my extended family thinks that tattoos (on anyone) and long haired boys are disrespectful and trashy.

A runaway train is barrelling down a track to a junction. There's 5 men in the way. You can't stop the train, no time 4 the workers to escape; You're the only person who can switch the track, but there's 1 person stuck there too.
Do you flip the lever? ๐Ÿค”
Do I know anything else about these people? Are any of them parents, single parents, only children, etc? Did the one person make a smart choice that got him/her out of danger? Did the five people make a careless decision that put them in danger? Is there any way I might pull the one person out of the way- maybe I have a tool that would free him/her and enough time to save just the one?

Also, would switching the tracks be considered homicide, where letting the five people die wouldn't implicate me at all? Because without the law criminalizing actions on my part, my instinct is to switch the tracks and kill one person instead of 5, because statistically one person's death would cause less overall pain.

I would also, after making my split-second decision regarding the tracks, try to find a way to save those who were still in danger.
