What would your life be like if you had been born the opposite sex? What would you do if you won free flights for a year?
What would you do if your mother won ten million dollars in the lottery? What would you have done if you hadn't come to the United States?
How would life be different if everyone in the world received the same salary? If your doctor told you that you had one year to live, how would you change your life?
How would life be different if we lived in a world where everyone was the same race and religion and spoke the same language? Would you like to live in a world like that? Why or why not? If you could invite any four people--living or dead--to dinner, who would you invite and why?
How would the world be a different place if you had never been born? If somebody offered you a million dollars to live in the United States permanently, would you do it? Why or why not?
If you were in a bar and a person offered you $50 to kiss a complete stranger on the cheek without saying anything first, would you do it? Why or why not? How would life be different if people didn't have thumbs?
How would history be different if America had remained a British colony? Imagine someone gave you $20,000 on the condition that you had to spend it all in two weeks, what would you do with the money?
