The Butterflies and Wheels Taboo quiz:

Your Moralising Quotient is: 0.03.

Your Interference Factor is: 0.00.

Your Universalising Factor is: 0.00.

And after y'all take the quiz you can tell me that I'm just wrong.

Mine are 0.07, 0 and 0..

Are you wrong? Hmm.. I've been exposed to too many other cultures.

Maybe that's the barrier to entry for this community. 0.03, 0, 0 here as well. Chicken anyone?

my numbers: 0, 0, -1.

Should I be proud of this?

I guess I'm the judgemental one that figures if you, or even your entire culture, wants to burn in hell then who am I to stop you.

my numbers are 0,0,-1. I figure I fit into the "you can do whatever the heck you want if you aren't hurting anyone else" category.

Another 0,0,-1...

The only 'issue' I had was that I really didn't want to watch the guy fuck his chicken. But that's just a matter of taste...

I didn't like the idea of eating the cooked chicken.. But what he did with it.. well..

"Fully permissive." My father in-law will feel so vindicated/irritated.

Indeed, ebradway... I wouldn't want to watch, but I'm sure as hell not going to obstruct his right to do it.

0.1, 0, 1. (I think it's at least arguable that breaking a promise weakens one's respect for promises in general, and is therefore at least likely to harm others eventually; I have a perhaps overly high regard for the tradition of truth-telling. I don't believe that enough to want the state to interfere, but I would be uncomfortable with someone that I knew had a tendency to do it. Similarly, it would bother me to see someone cleaning the bathroom with bits of a flag, but that's mostly for primitive arational reasons, and I don't think it's morally wrong).

I can't figure out what I did that got me the "1" in Universalization, though!

#Comment Re: Taboo made: 2003-11-06 20:45:45.62715+00 by: TheSHAD0W

0.16, 0, and 1.

I have no problem with labeling the morals of a nation as "bad". That doesn't make me want to charge in and change them; it may affect whether I would ever visit the place or buy goods from there, but I would happily opine that it is stupid and bad.

.03, 0, and 0. I guess that's the kind of response that makes one comfortable around these parts! I thought it was "a little wrong" for the guy to break his deathbed promise, but I also think it was wrong of his mother to ask that of him (which wasn't a choice on the quiz).
