I liked your answer to #16. Of course the smart alec in me instantly replies: Because everyone should experience it at least once. :)

I am much more surprised that you've killed and eaten your own dinner than that you've read the Bible. Seriously. Ick. Though ... if fishing counts.... I'm such a hypocrite. I should turn vegan. Ah, but then the poor wee veggies forced to give up their hold on life.... There's no solution!

Of course fishing counts, Barbara. While I did learn to shoot a gun before I could ride a bicycle, my dad never took my hunting.
