Give your instinctive responses to the following questions, after taking 15 seconds to look at this photograph.


Pick the best response (even if that means picking the one you dislike the least, dmitchell):

1. Is the picture funny, or is it tragic? Pick a number:

-2 this is just terrible, so sad
-1 this is unfortunate, I hope nobody was hurt
0 meh
+1 this is pretty funny lol
+2 epic, I am laughing my balls off


2. In the picture, which person best represents you?

a. The kid falling off the ATV
b. The kid driving the ATV
c. The lady trying to react to the incident


3. Whose fault was this (a, b, or c above)?




Thank you for your participation. There are free donuts and coffee on the way out.

It's not staged.

Its not a test, and only anonymous metadata is being collected.

seriously, grandma is trying too hard to be cool by letting them drive that thing. And yes I would laugh my ass off if I were the one who fell off even if I were a little injured.

I still need more data. I need at least three more responses. Go get your friend to answer.

Then we can do the second round of questions (which had to wait, because they would bias other people's responses to the first round).

1) terrible, so sad
2) d, none of them represent me
3) it's a little bit of all of their faults. dumb kid for driving stupidly, other dumb kid for following an idiot, and lady who is probably a relative for failing to allow the village to raise them properly. clearly a tea-party member who talks about personal responsibility and the like. the kids should be sent to re-education camps, and the lady sentenced to death for her crimes against the village. just goes to show, if you don't vote democrat, you'll fall off an ATV and crack your skull open.

pardon me now though, i just farted and i need to go sniff it.
