CONFESS! You Get To Be ONE DUer For a Day! Who You Gonna Be?
and why?

here it is. YOU get to SWITCH lives with ONE DUer for 24 hours. YOU get to pick. THE OTHER DUer gets no say.

you cannot claim any of their assets but you DO assume their life: job, transportation, identity, looks, personality, mannerisms, etc...

if they have a S.O., he/she will be out of town so NO SEX THREADS! :D

WHO do you swap with and why?

this could be a tough one :)

1. A couple of questions first...
When we switch back, do I get to remember everything I learned about them?

Do I get to "think" like them...do I all of a sudden know how they think and feel about things?

3. you remember
Edited on Tue Apr-13-04 04:36 PM by matcom
you would return to your 'natural' self BUT you would have 24 hours to gain whatever knowledge you could in that time.

your 'enhancement' would be confined to that 24 hours. in other words, you WOULD NOT automatically assume and absorb whatever was in their head.

you would take away whatever you could in THAT 24 hours ONLY

8. Not sure if that changes my answer or not...
24 hours inside Will's head would still probably be interesting. Although apparently that's a cliche answer already. :)

Can I be Mrs. Matcom? ;)

27. I'm just gonna flip a coin...
heads it's you...tails it's Will. :)

Sorry matcom...you lose. All I can really say is it's a damn good thing I get his liver to go along with his drinking. :)

Neato. I finally get to find out the answer to one of life's great mysteries...why is Will so bad about answering his email? :evilgrin: I promise to share what I learn with the rest of the class. :)

53. Would you still
think the same way they do? Situations and access are interesting, but what I really want to know is what makes them think (and post) the way they do. If its just my mind in their body, it would have to be one of the Admins. If I get to see how they think, it would be others.

I'm not ready to be a part of M.A.T.C.O.M. Too many expectations.

40. Some big, strong, macho looking, maybe ex-military man
Stallone or Tom Selleck type

Would like to feel like what it's like to go out in the world as such -- Do you really get the kind of immediate respect I'd expect - ?

So, anyone fit this description? Wanna trade with a young, gentle, petite woman? ;-)

I dont wanna be a girl lol, I like being a guy lol but it would be neat to see the world as a girl who is the same age and well LPFF tells me she's shy, but I bet I am more so.
Lucky girl is in Spain right now. So I'd consider her too. I believe she wants to be a journalist or something. I am not suprised no one wants to be me lol, I have such a boring life ;).
