Nice one on taking up the 20 20 for the month Duff.

1, nope. Live pretty much every day as it comes, expected or unexpected. Some of life's finest times comes from knowing what's not round the corner :)

2, Bond, James Bond! Gets the women, gets the cars, gets the gadgets :cool:

3, Give up TV easily I mean, I need Internet for my PSU fix!!

1. I'm very tempted...sure, I'll skim through it, I don't want to know everything.

2. Bond is a good shout. Forrest Gump had an interesting life, even if he wasn't that sharp.

3. Internet is the future of entertainment, I'll drop TV easily, I don't watch it anymore.

1. The only books I ever actually read were the Harry Potter books. And I'm very surprised I managed to read'm all :snicker
Needless to say the book'd be ridiculously boring, so I probably stop reading even before reaching the current situation.

2. Now that's a tough call. Maybe not my first choice really but one of my choices would be Eddie Mora! (Limitless)

3. Television eh? That means you can't watch TV shows, but you CAN watch movies! Yes! Weazle found a loophole :snicker
I'll give up TV, no problem for me.


And as Lethal said!
P.S. I do not want to be eligible for the prize. I just wanted to participate

1. You find a book and begin to read only to discover that it is your life. You get to the point that you are at now, do you turn the page knowing that you will not be able to change the events to come?
I burn the book as the book was already pretty crappy to start with....
In all honesty, I would not read ahead. I would never want to spoil the joys and mystery of what my kids will do next.

2. If you could live the life of any movie character, who would you choose?
I would live the life of Neo from The Matrix.

3. If you had to give up television or the internet, which would you choose? (And you CAN'T watch TV on the internet!)
TV would easily be the first to go.


P.S. I do not want to be eligible for the prize. I just wanted to participate :)

Cool this is my first, somehow I have missed all the previous 20 on the 20 lol.

1. I would be very tempted to read and learn how will I do, but I would much rather find out by myself.

2. Harry Potter, I mean the wizarding world is the only universe I ever wished was true.

3. I'd give up TV, even if I can't watch TV stuff on the internet at least I can keep up with news and stuff.

1. Not a chance in hell. My luck there would be like 5 pages left to the book when I catch up. If there was a ton of pages left I would just jump ahead randomly and read one page. Just to catch a future note. It would suck if you read it because it life wouldn't be interesting knowing what's going to happen.

2. Jordan Belfort from Wolf of Wall Street like like a pretty cool life. Minus the jail stuff.

3. Tough one bit I'd have to keep the internet. No way I could depend on our news outlets for news. No college football sounds atrocious though!

1. Yes, but then do things my own way anyway. Don't believe in fate.

2. Tony Stark, untold millions to blow on cars and women, plus a neat shiny metal suit to fly around in and deal death to evil doers.

3. Television, don't really watch any of the shite uk terrestrial tv puts on anyway. Plus online gaming and internet porn :D

Well, he said get rid of television, not get rid of YOUR television!
SO you can keep the device, just not the subscription.. :snicker

Not to forget, you can still use netflix and all so eventually you still see TV shows, it's just not on TV so it's legitimate in this question! :lol:

1: Read the book cover to cover. Knowledge is power and I don't believe in Fate.

2:Hmmm... Neo in an alternative Matrix where he takes the blue pill then goes for a chinese take-away and watches the latest conspiratorial movie.

3: TV. Virtually given it up anyway. No great loss.

1. No way Jose! Live life by the seat of your pants, even if that does mean shitting them occasionally
2. Ferris Bueller, because I could do with a day off. (And what a f'ing day off that would be)
3. Bye bye TV you old has-been

I'll leave you with this quote from that iconic film...
"Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass and twisted you'd have a diamond!"

1. I would not read past, but I would skim over the pages to check whether it suddenly stop and find out why.

2. Jennifer Lawrence. Edit: Lol. Okey.. Neo (the two following games don't exist).

3. I've already thrown out my TV and cable box. Projector all the way.

Here are my answers:

1. Yep. I'd read the whole thing.
2. Always wanted to be James Bond.
3. I've gone without internet and TV for the last month and a half. Hardly even think about TV, but damn have I missed internet.
