1. You are told that in three days' time, you will lose either your hearing, or your eyesight. You can choose which one it will be. Which do you choose, and what do you do in the three days you have left with both senses?

2. You are told by the government that Korea has developed bio- weapons capable of being launched into America's heartland. Unlike - arguably - Iraq, there is no doubt as to whether or not they're being honest. They present irrefutable evidence, and announce that America is going to war against Kim Jong Il. Do you enlist?

3. You are told that Paramount Pictures is interested in making a movie of your life. They haven't yet decided on the creative team, and in an unheard-of moment of collaborativeness, ask you if you'd pick the stars, director, and writer. Who do you pick? Why?

4. Beatles or Stones?

1 - I'd keep the eyesight. Primarily because I think it would be easier to live that way. And I'd spend the last three days listening to music.

2 - If I thought it would help.

3 - As me - Han Solo sarcastic young Harrison Ford (as opposed to "Get off my plane!" Harrison Ford).
Director - Ang Lee, because my life is like a gay cowboy movie, minus the gay cowboys
Writer - Codemorse the Great, because my life isn't that exciting, and I think it would be fun to watch with an unexpected twist (likely the result of a Codemorse script).

4 - Oasis. Ha ha ha!!!

What's cool is just how many twists I've written into the upcoming weekend.

It's like a Shymalan flick with gambling and boobies.

Said with tongue-in-cheek, of course.

1. I'd keep eyesight too, for practical purposes. But it'd be an AGONIZING decision.

2. I'm honestly not sure I'd have the necessary balls. I'd like to think I'd be right there, volunteering - but I'm also largely a pacifist. Were I able to serve in a capacity that didn't require me to kill men, it would be a no-brainer.

3. A young Paul Newman (I'm so predictable). Either Quentin Tarantino or a pre-suck Barry Sonnenfeld (because my life is equal parts deadpan ridiculousness and pop culture reference-fest, with dashes of random violence and quirky characters). And either William Goldman or Charlie Kaufman for me, if we're going to pick screenwriters. If we're going outside the pool (as you've flatteringly done) then I'd have to return the favor. A Jabs-scripted epic of my life would be outstanding.

1. Lose the eyes. Watch as many movies in possible in those three days, and yes, watch lots of porn, two.

2. No.

3. John Cusack as me, directed by David Fincher and written by Mel Brooks. Just because.

4. The Stones.
