1.) If you were told you had a choice between freezing, or burning, to death, which would you choose? Why? (Both are better than drowning, methinks.)
I would choose burning. For one thing, it is quicker. Generally, you suffocate on carbon monoxide instead of being slowly fried. Freezing hurts just as much, but it is a slow process, taking many hours. I would rather be done quicker.
If you could turn back to one event in history and change something about it, what would that be? It can be as far back as the start of the world and as recent as yesterday.
Technically, I love this world the way it is and wouldn't actually change anything. If I really do have to choose, I would prevent Russian Revolution.
In your opinion, during what historical time period did men have the best hair-cuts? Describe what they looked like.
I really don't know. No single haircut fits every face, and I think men should wear whatever style showcases their best features. :) Though 60s and 70s hair really does look funny...
If you had the chance to raise a tiger or a wolf, would you?
I probably wouldn't, because I like peace, quiet and cleanliness of my house too much. But I would keep a not-too-young tiger gladly. They are beautiful animals, and very soft and cuddly, even if they are dangerous.
What is the funniest word you've ever heard?
I don't know about THE funniest, but words like thingamajingy and thingamabob really do sound silly :)

I forget the technical name for the line of work you're in, but I'm curious as to why you chose it; what drew you to that line of work.
Pharmacy. I am a pharmacist, and I chose it because as a pharmacist you can be anything you want to be - you can talk with people non-stop, or you can see maybe one person in a whole day at work. You can do nothing but paperwork - or your paperwork can consist on signing your name a few times. You can do lab work, clinical research, see patients, do presentations, write books, travel - anything. Pharmacy is a world of possibilities. And it pays well, too.
2. What one person, real or fictional, living or dead, would you like to spend one hour with, and why?
Joseph Stalin. Because of what he did and the way he walked from a poor Georgian boy to great Soviet dictator is very interesting. And I would like to know why he did some of the things he did.
3. If you could have your fifteen minutes of fame, what would it be for?
I don't care as long as I get them. I am quite sure that won't come for science, sports, or acting, though :)
4. If there was any item from the past that you could own, what would it be?
Some beautiful jewelry piece. Any of the famous jewels will work, I am not picky :)
5. If you could travel back or forward to any point in time, what time would it be, and why?
I would travel 15 years into the future and see what I would be like in 15 years - how much I would have achieved, what I would look like, etc. But that's assuming I got to come back. If I didn't come back, I would go to the beginning of the 20th century, somewhere around year 1905.
