Congratulations to: thepolliwog, one4worldpeace, syrinxkat, robingrace, triplethreat310 and majkazmaj for guessing correctly! Of the films in that list, I have NOT seen "Attack of the Clones." (Although a few of you had very good reasoning behind choosing other films - there are definitely some on that list which aren't the usual sorts of movies that I watch). But no, so far I have avoided seeing any of the "first" three Star Wars movies in its entirety (although I've seen parts of some of them, but judging by the M15M parody I read in the book, "Clones" is the one of which I've seen NOTHING). Somehow I just never managed to get excited enough about them to sit through the whole trilogy!
I was secretly disappointed in some of my Harry Potter friends, though - I really expected a couple of people to guess that I hadn't seen "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - since that was the U.K. version, not the American one. But, as it turns out, I've seen both. So, um, maybe I shouldn't be disappointed in them for not guessing incorrectly? It just seemed like a perfect "trick question" set-up, though.
And, since everyone loves a poll (right?), here's another one, as requested by kvratties:
I read a book yesterday, whose premise was based on the "fact" that sisters are categorized by their families in one of two ways: as "smart" or "pretty." This might sound overly-stereotypical, except that in my experience, there's more than a grain of truth there. Certainly in my family, my sister and I were categorized. I was the "smart" one (not really fair, since I am nearly four years older than she is; of COURSE I could converse on a higher level than she could, at any given time); she was the "cute" one (not really fair, since she is nearly four years younger than I am, so of COURSE she was cuter than I was at any given time).
So . . . let's find out whether or not there's something to this.
Are you Male or Female?
Ladies: Do you have a sister?
Sisters - Were you the Smart One, or the Pretty One?
Men: Do you have more than one sister?
Men with Sisters: Was one of your sisters the Smart One, and another considered the Pretty One?
For those of you without Sisters: Even though you have no direct experience, you get to have an opinion too! Have you ever seen evidence of this dynamic happening in families you've known?
Should I have included boys in this quiz? In other words, are brothers categorized in some similar way, too?
