No, I wouldn't do it, for I quite understand the need for such pain and suffering which would be far more better for them in the long run in so many different ways. This is according to my own personal understanding and beliefs from my own personal reading of God's Word in the old King James version of the Bible. By the way, I have yet to meet anyone else of the same beliefs and understanding of this particular aspect of God's Word.

Do you think society puts too much pressure on people to be in relationships and/or have children? Do you think this ostracizes people who would be perfectly content to remain single and/or child-free? Is this pressure worse around the holidays?

Yes, Yes, & Yes.

Has a stranger ever bought you a drink at a bar? And have you ever bought a drink for someone you didn't know?
I never brought a drink for a stranger, but a stranger did buy my sister and I a drink. He turned out to be a darn good looking (reminded me of Steve Perry from the group Journey) male prosititute named George. :-) This was more than 24 years ago, and nope, nothing more after that happened, but it is still a most unforgetable night for me. :-)

Should some parts of celebrities' lives be off-limits to the public, or is giving up privacy a fair price for being famous?
Some parts of the celebrities lives is off limits. It was never ever part of the "contract" for them to utterly surrender their whole entire lives to the rest of the world when they become one. To have privacy in your lives is a good strong part of you being part of the human race. When did celebrity-hood ended that right for humanhood when a person become a celebrity? It never ever does, and just like the rest of the human race, they should have their privacy, would you like to have your privacy come to a complete halt just because of your job? I thought not.

Do you believe everything has a scientific explanation?
Nope, but I do whole heartily believe that there are things in this world, and out of it, which is beyond all science. I have a poem that suits my answer to this question perfectly for me:

"Extreme Donde No Supe"
"I came into the Unknown"

I came into the unknown
and stayed there unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

I did not know the door
but when I found the way,
unknowing where I was,
I learned enormous things,
but what I felt I cannot say,
for I remained unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

It was the perfect realm
of holiness and peace.
In deepest solitud
I found the narrow way:
a secret giving such release
that I was stunned and stammering,
rising beyond all science.

I was so far inside, 
so dazed and far away
my senses were released
from feelings of my own.
My mind had found a surer way:
a knowledge by unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

And he who does arrive
collapses as in sleep,
for all he knew before
now seems a lowly thing,
and so his knowledge grows so deep
that he remains unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

The higher he ascends
the darker is the wood;
it is the shadowy cloud
that clarified the night,
and so the one who understood
remains always unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

This knowledge by unknowing
is such a soaring force
that scholars argue long
but never leave the ground.
Their knowledge always fails the source: 
to understand unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

This knowledge is supreme
crossing a blazing height;
throug formal reason tries
it crumbles in the dark,
but one who would control the night
by knowledge of unknowing
will rise beyond all science.

And if you wish to hear:
the highest science leads
to an ecstatic feeling
of the most holy Being;
and from His mercy come His deed:
to let us stay unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

By San Juan de la Cruz/St. John of The Cross

Do you think animals have a sense of humor?
Yep. There was a spider monkey who played a practical joke on me, and right after he pulled it off most successfully, the cute little critter started laughing about it, and me, for being the "victim" of it. :-D  I was just a young kid when my family and I went to a petting zoo, and the spider monkey was in it's little home, just sitting there be quiet and watching my sister and I look at him. At this zoo, you were allow to feed the animals the food the zoo provided. I had in my hand some food to give him, and I encouraged him to take some from me. It was after a few attempts of this, that I turned my head to face my sister and tell her that I think he wasn't hungry. Well, while I was doing this, he quickly grabbed my hand, took some food out of it, ate it, and then his laughter came. It was so darn cute too and comical too. :-) To this very day, I can still feel his little hand grabbing mine for his little prank.  
What challenges in life have you conquered and emerged from a better person?
It will always be an ever on going war for me, but the answer to your question is over all the many battles...great and small...I have conquered so far in my almost 50 years of life with the life-long disease called depression.

Do you ever go out to dinner (at a sit-down restaurant) by yourself?
Yes, it was at a Denny's while I was VERY pregnant with my first child which this was close to 19 years ago My Dear Hubby decided that would be a good place for me to rest while he was out running errands, before he came back to me up for some place else we both went to that day. It was a great meal and I had an enjoyable time there. :-) Take care, Juliettecr
