Question #3

So here's the story...

While at new years 2008 one DC'er will have there consciousness placed inside your body. Your consciousness will go dormant for 1 year. On new years 2009 you will gain control over your body again with all the memories, benefits, and consequences from having said person possess your body.

Who would you pick?

Stipulations:

>The person controlling your body cannot tell others that it is their consciousness in your body.

>Your mind will go dormant, while their mind will continue to exist in there body as well as your body; with no knowledge that their same consciousness is in your body.

>If they die while in your body, then there original body and mind will die as well.

>If they die while in your body, then your consciousness, while dormant, will die as well.

>The person inhabiting your body will gain all the information that you possessed as of New Years Eve night 2008. All your inner thoughts, everything!

>You will retain everything the person did and thought while in your body when you get your body back on New Years 2009.

>As it is a separate consciousness, the person taking over your body for the year will not retain any information to his/her original body.

Nice job covering all the angles. Obviously, the safe pick is Jayber - got a feeling she would love living with herself - but I feel confident, with all your stipulations and whatnot, that whomever I'd pick wouldn't try to kill me.

That said, and aside from Jayber, I'd probably pick Snaps, just because she seems to end up in really fortuitous situations for no apparent reason. Of all the folks I could pick, I feel most confident that Snaps, a year out, would make me a millionaire. Plus, her and Meredith would probably have a great time together. (eww, gross.)

I'm going to admit I had to look up fortuitous.

And I'd pick Gator. I'd get out of school with great grades, get great job, and know a whole lot more about editing by the time my mind came back in 09.

because i was just thinking about the stuff she's done since DC 06...she went to thailand, she went to Africa, and I'm sure she did a lot of other things that I lack either the motivation or the guts to do. I think i would have some amazing adventures if she got to take the controls for a year...i might get into some trouble too but I could live with that lol

while i'm quite surprised at your choice, michael k., i must ask...

how is that you would be a millionaire "a year out?"

i must get in on this millionaire deal.

Here's the thing: I don't think any DCer is going to be a millionaire a year from now by their own volition, but I do think that you, out of all the day camp folk, have the most extraordinary luck. Things just kinda...happen. So I figure if anyone's going to get me a million dollars, it'll be you.







That said, if you did get a million dollars, it would probably be spent by the time I got my body back, so it's a wash either way. I take it back: I'd put Gator in me just so that - for once in his pathetic life - he'd get to know the thrill of being a Kanbergs. I'm generous actually: you all can have, like, a week allotment each. Every DCer gets a spin on this bicycle.

Er, um, yeah.
