Ask @benguino:

A portal to another world opens in front of you. You don’t know how long it will stay open or if you’ll be able to get back after you go through. What do you do?And which world would you choose ? A reminder , you might not be able to get back again !

A portal to the Pokemon world would be interesting.
Another idea would be a portal to an alternate reality that's identical the current one except that everything just "works out" for me. However, in such a case, I would want to have the memory of switching realities to be wiped from me so that I could appreciate the good things instead of expecting them.

What does true friendship mean to you?

I'm not quite sure. I've had many friendships, but it seems over time, I slowly lose touch with people who I used to be friends with. I've had a blast with people, some of which I hardly talk to anymore. I've also had friends of varying personalities/values/etc but a common theme is that their company brings me genuine joy and that their existence somehow positively influences my life.

What do you think of cheaters (in romantic relationships)?

As for me personally, it would hurt me a bit if I were cheated on, but I also tend to be a rather forgiving person. I also understand that some people tend to having more open relationships, in which case, I don't count that as cheating as long as the agreed upon boundaries/expectations are observed.
For some people, I know that they take cheating very seriously, and I'm understanding of people that break up with others over cheating.

suppose you rescue someone from drowning in a river, but do it in an overly dramatic and cliché way, so everyone watching you thought you were being filmed for a movie, and so didn't help you. your rescue causes pizza hut to shut down all its branches in nicaragua within 4 days. how did that happen?

Is this one of those questions where it's a riddle I'm supposed to figure out? Or is it one of those questions where you're expecting an silly yet elaborate explanation that I come up with? If it's the former, can I get a hint?

suppose you go on a night out and get REALLY drunk and wake up on a park bench in the middle of switzerland with no money, no passport, no shirt, and no memory of last night (you have your phone but it has no clues as to what happened to you). how long do you think it'll take for you to return home?

I feel like that would depend if I had another form of photo identification on me or not.

what is your opinion on the idea that most american universities make you spend 2 years studying a little bit of every subject for absolutely no reason at all except to ramp up tuition fees?

I personally don't mind myself, at least given the experience I've had at my university. I do understand that there is a divide in regards to how universities should be viewed. Should they be viewed purely as career preparation centers? Or should they be a place where people can develop their minds, share thoughts and have ideas, and be a true academic? I think the answer lies between the two extremes.
Like I think that being exposed to interdisciplinary ideas and projects is a good idea (although getting departments to coordinate this well isn't always easy) and that would only come as a result of people being exposed to a variety of subjects. Also, I think that basic communication skills is something that one should have before they graduate college (they should at least be able to put together a written sentence in their native language).
My university has a lot of general education requirements, but it's pretty chill. Like for each requirement...there is a list of classes you can choose from that will satisfy that requirement so you have the freedom of picking classes that both meet the requirements and satisfy your interests. In fact, some of these requirements have so many options of classes that satisfy it, that it's very likely that you'll be able to satisfy the requirement with a class that is also in your major.

what is something that is impossible (or EXTREMELY difficult) to do, but really fun to try doing? (this of course depends on what you do for fun. please answer from your own perspective, and not from what other people might consider fun but not you.)

I don't know why, but attempting to lick one's own elbow was the first thing that popped into my head Dx After some additional time to contemplate, I would say that singing songs a few octaves lower/higher than you should be singing them is also fun :P

you're on deal or no deal. the last 5 boxes contain: an avocado; a freezer; a pool table; a fiat 500; and a flamethrower. the banker offers you 2 iphone 7's and a trampoline. deal or no deal? (uk version, so if you no deal you don't get another offer until 2-box)

No deal because I wouldn't want the iphone 7's. I could take the iphone 7's and then sell them to someone else, but I couldn't live with the guilt of knowing I helped someone obtain an iphone as opposed to other alternatives.

you win a bungee jump in a raffle. you were trying to win something else, but you got a (free) bungee jump instead. do you (a) go for it (b) give it to a friend (c) sell it on the internet (d) do nothing (e) other (please specify)?

Assuming all travel expenses are covered in addition to the bungee jump, I'd probably go for it (I've jumped off of a bridge before). If travel expenses weren't covered, I'd first try to give it to a friend for free/cheap. If I couldn't find anyone willing to take it, then I would sell it on the internet.
