Would you rather be able to eat anything you want while remaining perfectly fit and healthy, or be able to learn and master any new language within a week (for each new language)?
This makes me sad :,( I expected the majority to be with languages
You should play sports then!! Lots of fun. It's almost like free exercise!
Not being fat and stay heathy.
Yummmm food ????
How about SELF DISCIPLINE! Say no to shittty food for once, America. I'm bilingual and it's gotten me offered 3 internships so far by 17. I'm skinny too, WOW
Ha! If it doesn't matter what you eat, being healthy is no longer an issue- ERGO everyone's lazy as h e l l
The question didn't specify appearance. It mentioned health. And fitness.
@RJ1969 - this is based on your current life. not what you think you will look like 10 years from now.
and do you still know how to speak it?
there is a difference between memorizing and speaking.
Do you know how many opportunities you can get from learning all those languages?
And what do you get from eating all you want?
That is the problem. We rely too much on technology.
I don't understand either...
Proving thus that the average American cares more about their appearance (shallow) then their intellect.
I already speak English. Why would I want to learn anything else?
I'm a woman. Of course I want to eat.
I'd be willing to pay extra to do both - 'can you supersize that please'
I just don't get this question. They're so different from each other I don't know how to compare them at all.
I'd want to eat bcuz I'm not really into languages. but for people who are, it makes perfect sense
I'm happy that I'm the minority... And yet I wonder how ppl can put food above free knowledge!!!
Language all the way. I mean, really.
wouldn't you rather be able to pig out on cookies and cake and not get fat? I wouldn't be lazy though.. At least I hope not..I'd still learn German like I want to
I cannot get motivated to exercise..I need to het myself out of this funk I'm in.
..health measure, to keep people from getting diseases, notably trichinosis.
So when visiting those places, it might not be a great idea to allude to the high esteem in which they hold pigs...
I think you may be thinking of Hindus & cows. Both Jews & Muslims are prohibited from eating pork (and a number of other things) by their holy texts, apparently because they were considered "dirty" - they eat garbage. It's thought now that this prohibition was likely a primitive but wise public...
Wow, what? Passing up the chance to learn any language? That's crazy!
This is EXTREMELY surprising.
Already am perfectly fit... Ladies.
I can already eat what I want an not gain weight. Can eat a 10lb steak and not gain a lb...6'3" 170 lbs for the past 3 years. Can't gain or lose
I'd rather choose the eating while staying fit. I could always study to learn a new language since I wouldn't have to worry about the gym.
These results sadden me.
HA! I already Eat ALot without getting Fat!! Lucky Me :))))
Seriously? People would rather miss out on amazing communication abilities than eat well and go to the gym?
Eat. I love food. But im starting to put on weight now that I dont play sports.
Being fluent in Klingon and Feline is enough for me. Bring on the bacon!
Why be able to communicate with the world when I could be eating pie?
God Bless America!
Imagine this on a job resume too!
Hello sir. i can speak 1,000 different languages from english to some random african click language. You'd be a walking C-3PO.
I would freakin rock at amazing race if i could learn languages like that. Starting with latin, i would move to chinese, japanese, indian, swahili, arabic, russian, french, spanish, portuguese, italian, german, and so on. Latin is a good basis for learning other languages and I already know some.
Haha RJ! Ikr? I eat enormous amounts of food because I burn calories so easily while running. I cant seem to escape 125 but I am happy there. At least Im not fat.
Speak. Having that ability would be an indication of super intelligence, so if I was that smart I would be more than capable of learning how to eat a healthy diet that tastes good too.
@susanr, I certainly took this into account. For those societies that hold the common pig in such high esteem, that it becomes an act of sacrilege to kill, cook, or eat, I totally get it! My stay in these locales will be BRIEF, I'll offer my respect, and move onto a bacon-consuming country!
You won't find that in *every* corner (Muslims, Jews).
I didn't see it as a question about how one *looks.* It specified being "fit and healthy.* Aren't those good things?
Sure of you like that. I'm simply saying that food is a more basic and common pleasure than learning languages. Most of us will never even get a chance to use them though we eat everyday. And that is why most pick food instead of languages.
my doctor says i have the fastest metabolism he's seen in his 28 years as a doctor so speak.
I'd love to eat anything and stay healthy doing so. Trying to eat foods that are good for you can be expensive. And for those who say "well I can eat whatever and not gain weight" that still doesn't mean it's healthy for you.
Assuming you're 43 and live in Cali but maybe not southern Cali you might be ok!
I live in Chicago and have gotten turned down for numerous jobs because I didn't speak Spanish or polish.
Probably not for long depending on how old you are and where you live because you can't speak another language!
eat. i already speak 5 languages but I am overweight.
