21. I do too

though I had a friend who won his competition, she was/is an amazing mezzo....and she said he practically sexually assaulted her. I think she was about 25 at that time. She was never a pretty woman. Though her voice alone would have made her attractive and I can imagine as a young woman she had a great body. I walked in to an audition for Sweeney Todd and she was in the next room singing and I just thought "holy shit, who is that, I might as well go him". She got Lucy and I got to sing the soprano in the Letter Quintet. But she was older, the right age for the role and I was still hitting high Cs then. I am a mezzo/contralto now.
Do you sing?

39. voice lessons are never a waste

I believe all people can sing and no one is tone def. I believe it is a matter of mechanics and training your ear. If you have children or grandchildren start at an early age playing a game of getting them to match notes. You sing a note and get them to match it by pointing up or down. My Mamma did that with us as her mother did it with her. I inherited my Grandmother's voice and I am so grateful!
Anyway, just sing... what is it people say, "sing as if no one is listening"!

11. I'm sure Trump is a fine person to have a drink with.

In fact, he often reminds me of people I've met at bars.

That doesn't mean he should be anywhere near the presidency. Quite the opposite, in fact. Who would want some drunk guy at the local bar to run the country?

I wish we could, once and for all, get rid of this idea that whether someone would be fun to have a drink with has anything whatsoever to do with whether they should be elected president.

16. Josef Stalin was a lot of fun at parties...

...but let's just say you didn't want to be on his bad side.

Donald Trump seems the same way because of his narcissism - life of the party, especially when he's throwing the parties, but pulls out all the stops when he's pissed at you and wants to fuck up your life.

19. That makes a lot of sense

 

Moe is a bit of a dick, and Curly (or Shemp) is a little over the edge. Larry seems down for a good time though.

32. Trump would be an angry drunk.

Even when sober he is an angry drunk.

So he's out. I think Bernie when drunk would basically give his speech only louder and more emphatically, possibly some slurring.

That leaves Hillary. I think she would be interesting - she would let her guard down and show her fun side, although there is a good chance that her fun side is just more talking about policy.

yeah, Hillary would be the most fun to get to know!

34. Assuming you are limiting this to the three Primary candidates, I'd go with Bernie.

It's pretty likely he wouldn't try to stick me with the check.

You should maybe have specified which three you were referring to.
