http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/ ... itful.html -
'Researchers have found that people's truthfulness varies significantly between countries, with Britons and the Japanese scoring highest for morality and China and Turkey having the poorest scores.' [hehehe]

-- It's more interesting still as it cross-tests how one test-country perceives the honesty of the other countries polled.
'In a series of tests, people were also asked to rate which country they believed to be the most deceitful with Greece, unfairly, topping the list.'
... which might in part explain why Germany, who regard themselves as the pinnacle of moral virtue, went to beat the living crap out of Greece over the latter's economic woes. Germany wasn't polled, but both Portugal and Greece scored higher than 'the noble Swiss'! :o :lol:

I got 2/6 correct for the music questions. Do I hang my head in ignorant shame, or take pride that I didn't resort to cheating? :)

Imagine you are in Africa. You have been tied hanging on a tree with a rope anchored on the ground, a candle is slowly burning the rope, and the lion is waiting for you to drop and be his lunch. Your survival hinges on the rope staying intact, there is no one around to help you.

I have finally decided that I am old enough to get some orthodontic treatment :mrgreen: . Chirpeedee chirp, off I go. To visit the orthodontic. After inspecting my teeth, the ortho has this broad wide grin on his face.

Him “I may just have the right treatment for you. I have been waiting for the perfect candidate to walk in to try a new device. You are the one.”

My girls are with me. And our eyeballs almost pop out of its sockets :-o

Me thinking, okie, so my teeth are perfectly screwed up. Just so for your experimentation.
Which leaves me with one question. Has he trained for this?

Him “we the ortho would discuss on the internet on the various treatments and devices and the outcomes. People rave about this product and it has a very high success rate”

Me thinking, okie I see. E-training. I have done it all the time. Like looking for a recipe when trying to figure out what to feed the family. If someone has to be the guinea pig. Might as well be me :P . Since we are at it, may as well make a tutorial video out of the procedure. To benefit posterity. In the name of science. And I promise to do it with a smile, whenever it is feasible. Yeah, I believe in service with a smile :D

Well, he may not have done this before but his enthusiasm won me over. Plus I am not inclined to sit thru another hour of consultation with another orto. I am waiting to hear back from them on the cost of the treatment. I may inquire if they offer “guinea pig” discount.

Be aware he is not using you as a self-paying guinea-pig for some experimental treatment he's pioneering. Happened to me in Germany. Then 2nd opinion [trusted] suggested it was wildly inappropriate and I'd be paying perhaps euro120k only for one certainty, that my balls would 'drop off', but I'd still be a data-point in this very senior initial doctor's research paper and lifetime's work :o

A doctor from France says: “In France, the medicine is so advanced that we cut off a man's testicles; we put them into another man, and in 6 weeks he is looking for work."

A German doctor comments quietly: "That's nothing, in Germany we take part of the brain out of a person; we put it into another person head, and in 4 weeks he is looking for work."

A Russian doctor says boasting: "That's nothing either. In Russia we take out half of the heart from a person; we put it into another person's chest, and in 2 weeks he is looking for work."

The U.S. doctor laughs and answers loudly immediately: "That's nothing my colleagues, you are way behind us....in the USA , about 7 years ago, we grabbed a person from Kenya with no brains, no heart, and no balls....we made him President of the United States, and now....... the whole damn country is looking for work."

Singapore in the world news...

'Unsafe to sew on train' letter amuses Singaporeans
Singaporeans have been in stitches this weekend over a newspaper letter about the dangers of sewing on trains.
Tan Lay Hoon described her encounter with a fellow passenger she saw cross-stitching on the MRT network.
"The embroidery floss running through her needle was about 45cm long, so I suggested to the woman that it could be dangerous to sew inside the confines of a moving train. There were commuters seated on both sides of her," the letter read.'

OMG... I fear this yarn might spin out of control... ;)

I came upon the link on a .co.uk forum where someone posted it asking 'What's wrong with Singaporeans!?' - hehehe....
