    I don't think they give you a choice but if they did I'd take it cuz maybe I could use it as a weapon.

    Don't care about the blindfold, but I would want my arms in front of me so I could raise them up and give everyone in front of me the finger.

    Fight till the end, screaming Pagan curses and epitaphs the whole time! But I definitely wouldn't go without a fight. Not in my blood to give up... ever, even when I am losing.

    No, I'd stick my tongue out and make a funny face and make them all start laughing so they'd miss.

    NO! I'd want them all to hear me very plainly as I invited them all to take a long deep drag out of the crack of my ***!

    I don't know why this brought back memories, but I remember carrying a spare M67 Frag Grenade in Iraq in case I got captured; we went out in small teams of 7-8 at times, and it was my worst fear to be captured. I'd rather pull the pin and drop it at my feet than die on my knees being beheaded. Just a random memory from Iraq that this subject brought back......not sure why.

    For anyone wondering what exactly the hell I did over there:

    "The operational cycle for the infantry troop is plan, insert, infiltrate, execute, exfiltrate, extract, and finally debrief."

    No. Tell them you want a good look at their faces for when you come back to haunt them.

    Thanks for your service and cool story.

    If anyone's curious, what brought this to mind is me and my coworker were talking about flying....and how we're both afriad to fly.

    I asked him if he took the window seat and he said...no, I like the aisle.

    I said I like the window seat.....might as well take in the view and see it coming.

    Then I said (while guessing the answer woulde be yes) the original question. (no for me).

    So my theory was proven correct, window-sitters on airplanes are the same people who would refuse a blindfold and vice versa.
