The website OK Cupid has about five million monthly users. And the survey they ask you to take has some pretty weird questions on it. Here are the top nine. See if you think any of them would help you find Mr. or Mrs. Right . . .
1. In a certain light, wouldn't nuclear war be exciting? Granted, if you say "yes," it probably does reveal something about your personality . . . and also maybe that you're a psycho.
2. Do you think women have an obligation to keep their legs shaved? The word "obligation" is key, because it makes a "yes" answer sound sexist. So if you're a man, the safe answer is obviously "no."
3. Which is worse: starving children or abused animals? Luckily, one of the options is, quote, "Neither, both are bad." But you can also choose "Neither, both are GOOD." (???)
4. How frequently do you bathe? On that one, the option you SHOULDN'T pick is, quote, "Once a week or less."
5. Do spelling mistakes annoy you? Apparently the implication is that you're not very smart if they DON'T annoy you. Or if they do, you might be the type of person who nitpicks everything.
6. Would you ever eat something out of the trash? Which is called "freeganism" . . . like "veganism" with the word "free" at the beginning. Obviously a "yes" answer is a turn-off for around 99.9% of people. However, it does suggest that you're low-maintenance.
7. Underarms can be a hairy subject. How do you maintain your pits? Choices for that one include, "I occasionally trim," and quote, "I let it grow wild and free." (So if you're counting, that's two questions about body hair.)
8. Would the world be a better place if people with low IQ's were not allowed to reproduce? It's not clear what exactly they're fishing for with that one, but the safe answer is obviously "no."
9. What do you think of when you hear the word "cell"? That's cell with a "c" . . . as in a "cell phone," not what a salesman does. Apparently if you say "cell phone," "jail cell," or "cellular biology," it reveals different things about your personality . . . like that you're into science, you've been in jail, or just that you own a mobile phone.
