Warren | 1556 comments You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on it's back. The tortoise lays on it's back, it's belly baking in the hot sun, beating it's legs trying to turn it'self over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that? -
I'm making soup.
Ya'll not from New Orleans are ya?

You're watching a stage play - a banquet is in progress. The guests are enjoying an appetizer of raw oysters. The entree consists of boiled dog stuffed with rice. The raw oysters are less acceptable to you than a dish of boiled dog. -
Well the oysters weren't covered in chocolate.

Remember-when in doubt answer :
"You mean like recently? What like in the last 12 months?"

Have I retire a human by mistake?
No, it wasn't by mistake.

Because total irrationality is the best way to prove that you're human.

Even today there are otherwise normal people who eat spam.

Darren I eat spam. Kimchi chiggae just isn't the same without spam.

Do I pass?

Agree- Many of the questions were only valid in a cultural context-
In a society where all animals reveredred
the idea of killing one would be abhorrent.
hence a reaction on the VK test.
The book makes that clear, the movie didn’t.

PS- It all taste like chicken.
