    You have to earn it...and it never easy
    I suppose that is better than 'awwww lol no (:'

    Perhaps I could impress you with my German language joke, schönes Fraülein:

    Essential German vocab for joke:

    Mähen-mowing
    Selbst-your self

    One sheep said to the other 'mähen', the other replied 'mähen selbst'

    *Other sheep choke with laughter*

    Arabic, Farsi (Persian), a bit of French, some borderline Italian and barely legal German.

    But I do know some Latin too
    Are you a genius?

    I would hope a gentleman of your standing would engage in humor.

    The one between life and death are laughing.

    Depends on the humour,

    How can one entity be a plural?

    Having Descarte write to me a few hundred years after his death
    I merely went into a state of hibernation waiting for an open book, multilingual, dancer. Unfortunately she was taken so here I am

    I didn't kill him but I killed him when I knew he was the saboteur and when it said kill 1 person or 5 people.

    Uh ughh...

    "In light of your somewhat disappointing performance in this test, you might want to spend some time examining how you think about morality. However, before you embark on this task, we suggest you check out the next page of analysis."

    Foolish to believe that morals are arbitrary, it all depends on context, (shades of gray vs black & white). Diverting the train maximises the chance for lives to be saved on both sides, without necessarily making me responsible for the lives of those people. If I push an innocent fat man in front of the train, I would most certainly be a murderer.
    If I knew the fatman was the cause of the problem in the first place I would have no difficulty being seen as the murderer of such an abomination.

    Then I shall serenade you with a song about Hamburg

    Hamburg ist ein schönen stätdchen, siehstewohl,
    Weil es an der Elbe liegt, siehstewohl,
    Darin gibt es viele mädchen, gibt es viele mädchen, gibt es viele mädchen Ja zu lieben aber hereiten nicht siehstewohl,
    Ach es ist Ja so schwer auseiander zu gehen,
    Wenn die hoffnung nicht wär auf ein weider weidersehen,
    Lebe wohl, lebe wohl, lebe wohl, lebe wohl, lebe wohl auf weidersehen

    Haha

    Damn it, this questionnaire keeps patronising me :argh:

    "Your Tension Quotient score of 38% is higher than the overall average score of 12%. This means that your responses to the scenarios that dealt with issues of sexual morality were inconsistent with the principles you endorsed at the beginning of this activity more often than average. Oh dear!"

    This is why I don't stick to a code or creed!

    Enough of this XD

    I like to think that everyone is a walking contradiction, thus who I really am, can only ever be a plural.
