Hmmm. I could actually answer 35 of those, I think, but sometimes the answer would be "neither" (for example, I have never drunk coffee and have no intention of ever doing so), and sometimes the question takes some translation (for me the choice of "pants" is jeans, cords, or slacks, but as far as underwear is concerned, I prefer boxers over briefs). But in particular, 9, Iraqi; 47, the lines that begin "Our revels now are ended."
