Each one sounds about equal, really.
I wouldn't want to know.
I'd rather know.
I'm happy with no insight.

I suppose I'd rather get away with something.

Didn't anyone bring dessert?
It's potato time!
I like trying exotic foods.
It's a potluck, why can't I try both?

This sounds like a lose-lose situation.

I guess it depends on how confident I am that I can fix it.

1,000 years ago for sure!
I'm happy right here, right now.
Do you know what the world was like 1,000 years ago? No, thank you.

I don't need money.
It's more about friends than the money for me.
My answer to this would change from day to day.

I want to know the truth.
I can see the terrible downside to both of those.
Ignorance is bliss sometimes.

There are ways to deal with either of those.
If I shave my head this probably doesn't matter.
I'll go bald, I can handle that.

This might depend on how closely I have to work with these people.
It's only working; I'd take the money.

I don't want either of these to be true.
Well, a nude model is at least legal.
It'd be kind of awesome if my mom was a jewel thief.

Taco time!

I don't want anything to do with Bigfoot people.
People could get dangerous if they think I'm hiding something so I'll take no one believing me.
