Saturday Six - Episode 207:
1. A friend invites you attend his church, but from what he says about it, you get the impression that it is something resembling the most bizarre of cults. Are you more likely to attend to be polite, or to make up an excuse to get out of it?
I would go but not just to be polite...more out of curiosity. It never hurts people to explore other religions.
2. You receive a neighbor’s bank statement by mistake, and you realize that the envelope wasn’t sealed before it was mailed. Are you more likely to open the envelope and take a peek before walking it next door, or just seal it up without looking?
3. You’re dining alone when you hear a couple talking about plans for their next sexual encounter. Are you more likely to ask them to lower their voices, or to listen?
I would probably listen for a few minutes then forget about them and continue with my own thoughts. If I am dining alone I am probably doing so as a way to get some time to myself and I would not be concerned with other peoples conversations.
4. Take the quiz: Are You Disturbingly Profound or Profoundly Disturbing?
"You are profoundly disturbing: You're weird, freaky, and maybe even a little psycho.
You aren't just attracted to darkness - you thrive in it. Your interests are downright creepy, and you may even lack normal human empathy. While there's no harm in enjoying the macabre, remember to keep your vilest thoughts to yourself!"
5. What is the most profound piece of advice you ever received?
As I was growing up my parents...especially my mother gave me a lot of advice (and lectures) ...most of it I didn't listen to until I was an adult. After they passed away I thought back to a lot of things they said and realized how right they were on some things.
6. Did the person who gave you that advice strike you as being particularly profound, or did the advice seem a bit out of the ordinary coming from that person?
Since the advice came from my parents I think it was particularly profound in most cases. I think it would have been very odd if they didn't offer me advice.
