Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !

Oh yes, it was a good lesson. It was a long time in the learning.

An expression. It means it took a long time for me to learn it. This post is taking a long time to write.

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !

Hmmm........ I am in the 11%.

But I feel that I am exploited sad

Anyway, how do I get others to fall for this test(or trap)?

A more important question I would like to ask is how do I change someone from the 56% group to make the person a member of the 11% group?

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !

Hi Agnishom

You just give them the link.

Why would you want anyone to be switched from one group to the other? It is their personality.

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !

Wow, read that whole thing, but, can someone please explain to me the joke part, it just seemed like one big...interesting story (I'm usually slow at grasping jokes in the first place...)?

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !

The link to the joke? Of course it is working.

By the way,
If you don't mind, Bobbym and stefy, which group do you belong to?

Who designed this concept anyway?

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !

Sorry, please don't mind.

I think Galahu34 and anky2930 has responded extremely strange to the joke.

By the way, we are celebrating Diwali, the festival of lights, over here. I am in a remote village at this moment and it is quite difficult to connect to the internet from here sad
Let me wish all other members a Very Bright and Happy Diwali for tomorrow

Hi Agnishom;

Thanks.

Have a good time and do not worry about things like connectivity.

Some may be surprised to know that I read it to the end. The story was so touching, I forgot it was supposed to be a joke.

Re: A very nice "joke"! ! !

I thought you would recognize yourself there. You seem convinced I do not like stories.

Btw, you never finished your story and told me what happened when you moved to Nevada after quitting every job you had...
