    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.

    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.

    @Dragoon Any other dead and rotting thing, you mean?

    I have moved plenty of dead things. Leaving a Styrofoam container that once held chicken breasts in my trash over a hot weekend smelled worse than most of them. So, yeah I suppose we can go with dead and rotting.

    In a situation like that, take a garbage bag (if you don't have a giant one, cut open the sides) and lay it over the corpse and then pull the ends underneath it. That will allow you to grab the bulk of it pretty quickly while reducing the risk of it breaking apart.



  • @djls45 said in Guess your ideology:

    overpowering stench, with nothing else to breathe.

    The worst thing I have ever smelled (and closest I have ever been to vomiting from a smell) was when my brother and I were cleaning out the hen house. We broke some eggs that were probably 6months old (maybe older). I can not articulate the foulness of that odor.

    I'm pretty sure that's what they did. Oh, and the body was inside the plastic that had been over the insulation, so they had to cut the plastic to get it out, and since they couldn't see what it was beforehand, when they cut it, the body fell out and splatted.

    Ooh, that is bad. We recently had some food that had been made with eggs, but it started smelling really rancid, so we figured it hadn't been cooked thoroughly and threw it out.

    @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.

    The reason I've always heard for these is so that if you lied, they can easily expel you for lying on the immigration form, without having to go through a whole trial in the US first or some other complicated procedure. The standard of proof for that is probably much lower than for the offense about which you would have lied.

    For example the terror acts you might have participated in might not be directly prosecutable in the US (because it would have happened overseas so outside of US jurisdiction?), so if you "forgot" to mention it, they could not expel you just because of your participation to it, but they could expel you for having lied about it. Of course they'll also deny you entry in the first place if you mention it, but that's also the point (i.e. if you've done one of those things, you're not welcome in the US).

    A quick search more or less confirms this, and there are even at least a couple of known examples of this happening.
