What's a popular food you find disgusting?

Mint. I really really dislike mint. Most of the time its far too strong for its own good in things. Forget about Toothpaste, thats a very literal "grin and bare it" situation.

What makes someone attractive?

Honestly, and its lame, personality really is a huge factor. People like to treat saying "that person as a great personality" as "on that persons ugly, find something nice to say about them!" but really, a visually beautiful person can have a great personality right along with the not-so-attractive people, and I'd see, and respond to, that before I'd say looks factor into anything. Its really how a person carries themselves, and most people usually see that beauty (or ugliness) before they process someones appearance (but we're also instinctively negative to things that are "ugly" in appearance -because ugly usually means bad/malicious in the wild. Damn our animal brains!)

The tricky thing is actors. They're entire livelihood is based on tricking people into believing their someone else, and this makes them ambiguous in this case. For whatever reason while thinking about this 2 names pop into my head: Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Lawrence. Both of them are visually beautiful women, and they both seem to be genuinely wonderful people: But how would we really know? They could be terrible people for all we really know (God I hope not. And P.S. sorry Olivia and Jennifer for implying you MAY be horrible people)

This is why I think a lot of actors are in theory. Its kind of like Clayface in Batman (and a few other characters in other universes that are shapeshifters), the act of taking on someone elses persona really messes you up -then do that hundreds of times over... You literally lose yourself.

Should we read a lot of books?

Yes. We really need to, as a species, start reading a lot more then we have been in the past decade and change. We're not really helping ourselves taking in absolutely all of our knowledge in quick, easily digestible (read: forgettable), videos.
