My head is me. It's my brain, and soley contains 4 of my senses, as well as the 5th. The rest of my body is just there to keep me running.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 9/3/06 - 3:30:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am me. If I were headless, I could not answer this question.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 9/3/06 - 3:39:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Out of the two I would definetly use, me and my body.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 9/3/06 - 4:44:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not trying to be a grammar nazi, but I said this to myself, and I thought of it as "My head and I.".

Would that be more correct?

11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 9/3/06 - 4:48:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
no it would be my head and me, because if you took out the my head and, you would have "would you speak of yourself as 'me'", not "would you speak of yourself as 'I'"
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 9/3/06 - 4:57:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would speak of myself as "my body and I", because my body would be an empty vessel, devoid of any capabilities, whereas my head would be where I'm at.

Is not bad grammar!

11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 9/4/06 - 4:01:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
My body and I would form great convulsive laughs at the sight of my head.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 9/4/06 - 4:02:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I think it would be me and my head.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 9/4/06 - 4:53:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd probably say my head and I.. or simply "we".
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 9/5/06 - 8:47:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would most likely refer to it as me and my body.

11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 9/5/06 - 8:48:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd refer to it as two parts of my body. Me, and me!
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 9/5/06 - 8:06:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would be dead, decapitated

I used it that way because that's exactly how he says it in the movie.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 12:51:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm sure I just can't figure that one out.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 12:23:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say arggg! And then that would be the end of it.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 6:35:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I believe that neither my head, nor my body is truly me. I have a soul and that is the real me. Furthermore, if my head were disconected from my body, neither would function at all. Only my soul would exist.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 10:50:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Weird question but I would say me and my body.

Then you’d be talking out of your ass.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 9/7/06 - 10:44:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
me and my head
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 9/7/06 - 2:07:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Me and my body, seen as I would be speaking fom my head and my body would be able to wander around of its own accord. Oh, and i'd also be dead, so it wouldn't matter.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 9/7/06 - 4:16:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I stayed alive long enough to realise I was now two people, as it were, I'd refer to "me" as wherever my mouth was, seeing as that is doing the talking.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 9/7/06 - 5:12:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
if that were even possible it be me and my body.
11 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 9/7/06 - 8:02:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
me and i would burn my body
