    Like... right now? No, I'm in a basement, how could I possibly see an outdoor garbage pail?

    Oh, they changed the answers starting at that question.

    So it's a square piece of chocolate? Or is it a piece of chocolate shaped like a square dog's poop?

    Yeah, no. Not at all.

    And I have no idea whether that's right, wrong, or not even wrong.

    if it's right i want to be friends with 55 to 95% of your brain



  • So this basically boils down to the thinking that Republicans are easily disgusted and Democrats arn't?

    Actually exactly that. Which is why it's crap.



  • @dragoon You know, that would explain all these famous people lately... 🚎

    I wanted to say "extreme disgust", because I would try to avoid touching a dead pet cat, but if it was newly dead, I probably wouldn't really have any issues.
    If it had been dead for a while, though...
    My parents actually had one die (not their cat) in the insulation underneath the kitchen of their mobile home. We didn't realize it was there until it had half-rotted and was stinking up the house. I made myself unavailable when it came time to find and get rid of the body.

    You see someone put ketchup on vanilla ice cream, and eat it.

    I don't handle lots of blood very well, but again, I don't think that's really the same thing as "disgust."

    Your brain is a Democrat
    Conservative (29%) ---------|--------------------- Liberal (71%)

    Yeeeeeaaahhh, no.

    And if I want to understand how they get their results, I have to either buy a book or watch a 14-minute, 2-second TED Talk. But they used a different, less-accurate method of determining disgust than the original research did, so this questionnaire is really nothing more than a silly gimmick.



  • "If I see someone vomit, it makes me sick to my stomach."

    Yes, it makes me sick. That's some kind of hard-wired psychological reaction. It's probably a lot stronger if I smell it. Now, please, somebody explain to me how that has anything to do with politics? Like, at all.

    BWAHAHAHA 🤣
    Yeah, I consider myself something like a "social democrat" (not sure how well that translates), so unless you're actually counting Sanders as a capital D Democrat now, there's no US party I don't consider too right-wing. No, the Dems aren't left from my POV. Hey, you consider our conservative right-wing chancellor a liberal left-wing, so I get to do the same in reverse. 🤷♂

    Yes, stay over there you pinko.



  • @boomzilla Gladly, do you know how much hassle ESTA is these days?
    Besides, couldn't you use my Republican vote? 🚎



  • @topspin said in Guess your ideology:

    Gladly, do you know how much hassle ESTA is these days?

    I had to google that to see what it was, actually.



  • @boomzilla
    They ask you fun things like are you a terrorist (Duh), have you ever participated in genocide (I think you'd know my name then), and do you plan to overthrow the US government.

    Unfortunately, they don't take lightly these kind of jokes:

    Once you get past the smell, it isn't different than moving anything else really.



  • @Dragoon Any other dead and rotting thing, you mean?
    It was falling apart, was full of maggots, and even had the fiberglass insulation mixed in. It was just at the most repulsive state of rotting. And in the claustrophobic crawlspace, there wasn't any fresh air coming through, so any disturbance of the body resulted in fur and fiberglass poofing out from the corpse and an overpowering stench, with nothing else to breathe.
    And the entry into the crawlspace was such that a large shovel could not be brought down to scoop the remains into a bag, so it all had to be done by hand or with a little gardening trowel.
