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. :)

it kinda makes you think, huh? compared to real life, the first thought that comes to our heads once we're free is to save yourselves? humans are naturally selfish, no? although sometimes not essentially a bad thing, if i see a bolder coming down a mountain, i would probably panic and move out of the way and probably forget about the person standing next to me, but if i were in a situation where there were no life-threating situations, i would have enough time to think about the other people instead. i guess each person would just have to figure this out on their own...lol

So this is just a moral question?

I would choose to become supreme ruler of all the people in the room...and that a toaster, bread, and a ninja be brought to me as my first order's as supreme ruler of the room with the people in it!

I would ask what the Deuce is going on?

Then I might dance around for a while.

Then I think I'd poke someone (probably the most attractive girl in the room) a couple times.

Then I might amuse myself with a pencil and a pad of paper for a while.

Then I might leave for a while to get some 7-11.

Then I'd come back, hang out for a while.

I think I'd ask everyone to talk for a while. We could talk about the Detroit Pistons or the evils of pants or any other topic we feel like talking about.

Then I'd tell everyone to go home.

Then I'd figure out who did the tapping and ask why they tapped me three times.

Then, because I'm posting this here, I would ask them if they enjoyed "tappin' that". (Yes, yes, I know, puns hurt America and I'm a hypocrite. ::shrug:: so it goes)

I included the phrase "for a while" a lot in this. I just thought you should know.

How many times would you poke them, is the question. ;)

I would have left too from the first instructions after tapping out a friend so we could hang together.
So what does it mean?
