I haven’t done one of these in ages!
If you could live on another continent for 1 year, which one would you choose?
I really like the one I am on. 🙂 But if I had to choose it would probably be Europe. There would be lots of interesting things to see and explore there.
Which browser do you use to surf the Internet?
Firefox. I also have Internet Explorer through my ISP, but Firefox usually works better. It is nice to have both options, though. Sometimes a site that won’t open in one will open in the other.
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you know about the history of your country?
Well, I think I know a lot, but if I were tested I probably would score low compared to others. A 6 maybe?
Finish this sentence: Love is…
…longsuffering, kind, hopeful, optimistic, enduring; not envious, proud, or self-promoting; not easily provoked…(from I Corinthians 13:4-7).
Have you ever been in or near a tornado?
Once. I was at BJU during one of the opening services of second semester in January in the later ’70s when a tornado hit the corner of the amphitorium (biggest building on campus, I think, where everyone gathers for chapel, preaching services, and some programs). Dr. Bob Jones, Jr. was preaching (I think about the devil). I was on the main floor under the balcony and saw ceiling tiles floating down. Everyone’s first instinct was to panic and run, which would have been disastrous in a room of 5,000+ people. Dr. Bob did not shout but said in a very firm, authoritative voice, “Sit down!” Everyone sat! Then he gave his instructions about how to calmly leave the building and where to go.
A funny story I heard later was that there was a guy in the hospital on campus listening as the service was broadcast. He heard the noise of the tornado hitting the building and dashed to the window to see what had happened, when he heard that firm “Sit down!” So he ran back to his bed and sat!
I have always been glad they had such an authority structure that people would listen and heed such instructions at such a time. The results could have been fatal otherwise.
If I remember correctly that corner of the building was the only thing damaged.
