Question #6: Regarding Walter Reed Medical Center

Which would you rather give for your country, your legs or your life?

Neither, thank you very much! I might give life or limb for some causes or people, not for my country.

Cody beat me to it. For "country" in these times I read "Cheney-Bush administration."

I'd give my toenail clippings I guess.

While I feel the same way about the Cheney administration, I do kind of like the United States.

Sure, we may be a little too free-and-easy with our landfills, and our hummers, and that sort of thing, and we may be functionally illiterate, but I think that overall, the people are well-meaning, and overall, the country is beautiful, and overall, the idea of democracy is a good one. So while I'm sometimes jealous of a few smaller countries that seem to have it more together, I kind of dig my country. That's not really what my question was about, but there you go.

(You know, now that I think about it, I feel the same way about Texas. Hm.)

I choose legs. Seeing as bionic body parts seem to be around the corner.su

I'd definitely give my legs before my life, but then since I'm a guy who prefers to sit and read most of the time anyway, it wouldn't ruin what I value most about my life. I can imagine that some people, if they lost their legs, wouldn't feel they had much of anything left.
