Vintu - A bottle of Black Label, so he can have a change of taste from the same old Vintage wine he's been drinking since ages.

16. Who in your mind a better debater overall (on average) from Mr. K or RTH and why-- BTV, Me, Angie, King Anu. They're usually the most articulate of the lot. (forgive the vanity, do. ). Then there are others like Rehanism and Arwen but they don't post much (or do they?)

22. who is the most romantic here and why--Summer. His shayaris. Subhanallah!
23. what is that you get physically attracted to in opposite gender--- Intelligent, radiant face and eyes, along with that charisma and dry wit. This combination shoots me nerveless in the knees.
24. what 3 personal qualites will you look for in life partner-- Adjustability (I'd have to be able to adjust to him without compromising on my basic principles and core ego), Good listening (lending a ear---yada yada) and finally, he has to share 60% of my interests (a big stretch, I know)
25. Rate following on their debating contribution to this forum (10 being best, 0 being worst). You can base it on their activity, quality of their posts, seriousness. Anything. NA if you dont know

King Anu --- Remain as you are.
Birdy --- Try to sound more formal.
Lonely--- Don't be afraid of arguments.
Rehanism ---Not everything about religion is bad or evil. Do think more about it.
Gumrah --Kabhi kabhi to serious threads mein bhi participare kiya kar.
Souro --- Sometimes you argue just for the sake of arguing. That ain't nice.
Mister K. --- Please don't use jaw-breaking, popularly incomprehensible words in every sentence.
RTH -- She sounds too remote and abstract sometimes. It often impedes the flow of the argument which would be best done using simpler and more straightforward words and phrases.
28. Pick 5 male and 5 female members and rate them in likeness (out of 100%). The likeness can be due to any factor/s. For example Mr. A=80%, Mr.B=10%.
29. Since we debate a lot about gays and lesbians and talk about equality and all that. I guess therefore no one will mind this question. State 15 members and from your observations who is likely to be straiight or who has has some/any chance of being non-straight. Straight versus non-straight

36. Gumrah, Pretty Kuri, Krystal, Baz, Souro, Vinu, Ass and Summer are on a get together. They are on African Safari in Kenya. Souro is driving and Summer/Baz in front seat. Girls in second row and Vinu and Ass in the third row. On their way to hunting field there is thick jungle.
Ass says he badly needs to go for a bathroom break. Summer wisely says no. Ass says he cannot resist. Vinu offers a bottle. However girls says no let him go outside and get it over with. Summer is not happy. Baz is not sure. Anyway Ass goes out.
Suddenly from somewhere aadevaasi dressed in straw attire come out and capture ass. They then surround everyone and take hostges. They ask for someone to talk to. krystal knew their language. They said they are man eaters. Krystal says you cannot eat us like that.
Negotiations start. Aadevasi says please us and we can think of letting few go. Girls start singing a song while boys starts shaking. Aadevasi get happy. They decide to relase 5 and keep 3 and says its Krystal decision
Which 5 will you keep? Myself (obviously), the other four being Pretty_kuri aka fair_n_luvly, Gumrah, Summer and Souro
How will you save other 3? I take the other three aside and whisper some advice. Soon, all of them start to cry and say that all the three must be eaten by the chief alone, otherwise they won't go to heaven. I too request only the chief to eat them as a sign of gratitude for letting five go.The Chief happily obliges, but the followers are infuriated. they start arguing and gets killed by the Chief for protesting. Consequently, the family members of the dead get angry and set upon the chief and his men. A civil war ensues and while the bloodbath goes on, one of us secretly slips in and unties the three and we all rush to the jeep and get the hell out of there.
Use any tool you have for this trip.
Thanks and hope no one will mind. lol
P.S: Also take your time. You can answer in pieces. You have full week so hopefully wont take much of your time.
