    I will have a lash at it.

    Will take way more then 2 hours

    and will have to rearrange order of the questions

    And the appendix one will have to come last.

    Can I have bourbon instead of scotch?

    I have to calm the 2500 riot crazed and the Tiger with the music

    "The universal language"

    But maybe the rifle before the music.."just in case"

    No point in passing if your dead.

    The history, psychology, sociology, physics, and philosophy

    ...are all tied together...the story of man and the human condition


    It will take me 9 months and a "willing" and fertile female helper to create human life...and no you can't watch

    and another 18 years or more to see how it turns out

    Source(s): Life the ultimate university If you really take the time to learn about one thing........ you can learn about everything If you have the "Want to" Knowledge is not a pass fail thing...and it is an open book test But life unfortunately can seem like pass or fail and there is always another test your not quite prepared for

    HISTORY: Papacy = bogus mind control

    MEDICINE: Yea, I'd be dead

    PUBLIC SPEAKING: I'd be soooo dead!

    BIOLOGY: I'd do it all the same except I'd eliminate greed - that should add a different spin!

    MUSIC: Hey... someone stole my piano!

    PSYCHOLOGY: Ramses was nut... I don't know the other guys.

    SOCIOLOGY: End of the world = end of society = NO social problems (except for the cockroaches who are sure to survive.)

    ENGINEERING: I hope it's a heavy a** rifle cuz I'm gonna have to bash kitty over the head with it!

    PHYSICS: Matter is an illusion.

    PHILOSOPHY: Philosophy of Human thought = "I need"

    GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: Just learning while I'm here... :-D

    Panda, you know what's funnier than these questions?

    The fact is that questions like these appear on the pages of Yahoo Q/A every single day, and the people expect answers. Strange world.

    Hm, yes quite. We would be lucky to achieve just one of those efficiently during a single lifetime. 2 if we are a genius, with a smidgen of knowledge on the rest. . We tend to specialize, it makes life so much simpler. :)

    Practicing Shaman... quantum physics rocks

    Excuse me Professor?

    The drunken tiger and I would like to know why there is a piano under my seat.

    He'd also like to ask if we could take out your appendix instead because he might like to eat it. I told him that yours would be delicious.
