    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    You won't live forever whether or not you ingest trans fats. Interesting technique, though, this purposefully shortening your life thing.

    For the record, I don't think the information in the "test" is a bunch of BS, I do believe there is a cure for cancer and that soda's are the worst thing you can drink, but the questions are horribly worded.

    Are people saying they think the content is a bunk or just the phrasing of the questions?

    EDIT: Questions like these I think are true:

    • Silver fillings are safe to put in your teeth. Otherwise, dentists wouldn't use them.
    • The Federal Reserve is a branch of the U.S. government.
    • The fluoride added to drinking water is sourced from naturally-occurring fluoride mineral deposits.
    • Inflation is a natural side effect of a healthy, growing economy.
    • The U.S. is the most technologically advanced nation in the world.
    • The United States of America is a Democracy.
    • All foods and beverages are safe to consume in moderation and can be part of a balanced diet.


    Those questions aren't just wild conspiracy theories. Or once, again, I may be gullible.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    In my case, both... although what bothers me is not the "bunk" items (not too many of those) as much as the misrepresented information.

    An example is the "inflation" question - they did not specific monetary inflation, but that's all the answer has. Another is the gas hydrates, which is far from feasible or confirmed. Cancer has many variations and is one of the most complex problems around - that one is bunk. The comments on sunscreen ignore both what sunscreen does as well as the extremely well linked connection between too much sun and various diseases. The links between sodium nitrite and cancer are new and over represented. The bit about carmine was very amusing... the translation to the answer is - a rare allergic reaction could trigger a severe and possibly fatal allergic reaction.

    Further, most of their backup comes from their own site, which references their own site again. Often written by the same guy that wrote the test itself!

    Genetically I have the possibility of lasting more than 100 years, not so sure I want to stick around that long. I'm already shooting craps in the relationship arena, so the less time I have to go senile the better.

    Fillings safe or unsafe is a huge debate. I'm on the fence, I'd rather not have them, but I do.

    Fluoride added to the water comes from industrial waste. Synchronisity but this has become my DH's pet project today and he's out in the living room yelling statistics and facts at me. Someone please come abduct me. Now.

    I think Japan beats out the US in terms of technological supremacy. Think. Not something I know, though.

    I reiterate; trans fats will kill you a lot sooner than you'd die if you didn't ingest them.

    With respect to the one about the sun; all the sunscreens and avoidance of the sun have caused as many problems as sun burns do. Again, this used to be a much discussed and argued issue. It's less so now (a recent study - you can't find vit d on the shelves here right now), and I believe the reference in these questions was Michael Holick, if it was you can trust that one.

    This signature left intentionally blank.

    Really.
