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. :)

Oh shit!!!!

Well... whoops. I guess I just assumed that'd be understood.

Well yay, you. :) That's the answer that every teacher wants to hear from their students.

Not that I'm a teacher, or any of you are students, but the ammount of people who have said tap the others here is muuuuch higher then the average in the classroom.

Though as maggiedacat (sp?) all ready said it's much different doing it in a classroom then on a random journal.

I'd dance a little dance, spin in a circle, and leap out of the room. Then I'd dance down the hallway and laugh at all the people who can't stand up and sit down without being tapped.

Well, it's notthat there's a real, or a right answer... and I messed up in the instructions, and didn't let you know that this is a room fullof people having to do the same thing...but what the teacher says to those who didn't tap everyone else three times is "Why didn't you free your oppressed classmates?"

i'd tap everyone once, then play pranks on them, tie their shoes together,and tie them to each other, then tap them all twice... for example.

I don't have the energy to read all of the comments. I'm wondering, what is this activity, could I look it up? Are you going to provide an explanation in another entry? I'm curious!

Yes, you can. ;) I wrote it wrong, because I didn't make it clear that you're in a room with other people who all are doing this as well, some ones, some twos, some threes. It's actually a classroom activity, and those that are threes that left, or just sat down, or went to sleep, etc. are addressed at the end of the exercise and asked why it was that they didn'tgo and tap everyone 3 times... why didn't they free their oppressed classmates?

I don't know the correct answer, so...

I'd yell "Poon Attack!" at the top of my lungs. That or "Nut butter!" and look nonplussed afterward. :D

I didn't really get the edit part. Are there people trapped waiting to be tapped so they can leave?

My first reaction was that I'd ask the tapper a question that he or she had to answer.

It's an exercise.

Everyone else inthe room has to keep repeating these rules.. but if you're a three, you have the ability to free them from that.
