The Wedding Invitation
Oh So Tasty
The story goes that during Hurricane ‘Iniki, many local Kauai chickens and fighting roosters were freed from their cages. They roamed free, and, as wild chickens often do, they multiplied beyond control.
The local Kauai government is reported to have tried to entice the local population to begin enjoying killing and eating the Kauai chickens as a means of population control. The following recipe is posted as a means to enjoy the local denizen:
Kauai Wild Chicken Recipe
* 1 wild Kauai chicken
* 2 onions
* 1 Cup of chopped pineapple
* 1 bunch of seasoning of any kind
* 1 large volcanic rock
* Salt. Maybe some pepper
Put all ingredients into a large covered pot. Simmer over a low flame for a very very long time: until the volcanic rock is soft and tender. Discard the wild chicken, and enjoy.

No Starfleet For Me
53% Intrigue, 73% Civilization, 57% Humanity, 35% Urbanization
Your result for Reincarnation Placement Exam...
We think we've found a place for you.
Your answers indicate that you're very fond of the fruits of civilization... for example, education and technology. But, in some twist of irony, you're not too fond of the pressures of civilization... you know, human beings and crowds and working together. We found you a place where you could enjoy an erudite existence, live a life that's intriguing and not entirely secure -- but far from the madding crowd.
Removed from civilization and humanity, yet educated and sophisticated, you'll make the perfect reclusive artist... An eccentric that produces irresistibly attractive masterpieces. Your art will make people swoon, and yet you will despise your audience. Your audience will probably dislike you as well, though they will go on admiring your work. So it all balances out, and your patrons will leave you alone to shape beauty in the wild, dangerous parts of the world where people won't pester you so much. Probably, you will write under a pseudonym, and mutter a lot when a rare admirer comes calling. If you feel really adventurous, you can pursue the role of a political dissident.
As you age, you will grow into the role of an incorrigible curmudgeon.
You artists, you're all the same.
