What would you do? [Mar. 8th, 2006|12:51 pm]

All right, say that you're in a room, and you are given these instructions.

These are the rules.
If you are tapped once, you must sit down, close your eyes and repeat the rules.
If you are tapped twice, you must stand up, open your eyes, and repeat the rules.
If you are tapped three times, you may do whatever you like.


What would you do if you were tapped three times?

And let's try to keep it somewhat realistic... ;) ie: "I'd fly to Beijing for a sci fic convention!" "I'd kill JFK!" "I'd marry Brad Pitt!" "I'd star in the remake of How to Marry A Millionaire!" etc, would not be acceptable responses. ;)

If you've done this exercise before, kindly don't give it away?

I'm looking forward to reading your responses. :)

- EDIT

Grr! I'm so mad at myself. I didn't make it clear that there's a room full of other people involved as well and that some will have been marked 1, 2, and 3's.

And you as a three are free to do whatever you like in the room.

Now, some of you did this, and kudos to you for that.. but those that didn't... or still would keep what you answered knowing that there are others involved...

Why didn't you, who had the power to do whatever you liked... free your oppressed classmates?

Just something to think on. :)

No honey, just say what you'd do. The first thing that pops into your mind.

I'd stare at the people on the ground still, and tell them it was silly and that they should get up.
:P Then if I couldn't persuade them to leave, Id get up and go.

I'd change the rules, making the tappers the tappees.

Power to the people!

I think I would um... sit down, close my eyes and repeat the rules. Then stand up, open my eyes, and repeat the rules.

But that's because I am a crazy rule follower and those are like the first two rules and poking me one plus two times equals three...

I would do number one because how would I know I was going to be tapped three times?

Well, assuming I came around the room and happened to tap you three times, then.

Is that Fairuza Balk in your icon?

I'd tap everyone three times. Maybe five. Or even six. I'm such the rebel.

I'd probably go take a bath. All that sitting/standing would make me worn out.

Depending on who was tapping me and what the rules were, I'd either leave the room or take off my clothes.
