Hi! We are back online.  

No time for small talk, this week we are finishing the second part of our “Would You Rather?” conversations. Different from last week, we dive into some deeper questions that we've found to be a little more interesting.

  1. Think of some architect or designer you really love, and imagine you are given two choices: 1) Travel back in time and get to know them, work for them, become close working partners, or become close friends with them; 2) You're the only person in the world who knows they existed and you can now become the architect or designer that you worship (BE UR IDEAL EGO).
  2. Would you rather meet your ancestors or your grandchildren?
  3. Would you rather never fall in love or fall in love multiple times, but know how all of your relationships will fail? 
  4. Would you rather live your whole life as a child or an adult?

“The first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If we are going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb, when it comes, find us doing sensible and human things -- praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts -- not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs.”

― C.S. Lewis
