Something scewey. I suggest you stay away Barky. Had a bloke up the street from me when I was a kid. He was called Albrecht, Mum told me to stay away from him.

Wouldn't it be simpler to choose the one you do not want in the lifeboat?

(I have no idea what this is about either.)

Me neither, but, if I had to guess, I reckon that the name you don't choose for the lifeboat is supposed to expose your unconscious prejudice against a particular race or nationality or occupation, even if you have no idea who or what the names represent.

If forced to choose, I would simply pick the first six, not knowing who any of them are. I could then be accused of prejudice against black performance poets. ::)

(I had to look Adisa up!)

It would be easier but there's a reason it is the other way round...

I'll tell people what it is about when people have done it... else it will remain an unsolved nagging perplexing mystery till yer dying day...

You said don't search the internet for help in choosing the six.

As I said, I'd chosen the first six, before looking anybody up, so my choice was not influenced. So I've abided by your rules.

Now what?

You are having real problems here aren't you Je?

Like they are going to lose their pensions if they answer incorrectly.
BTW what is a man or woman, I didn't answer you.
I took the virginity of a post op transgender.
Sadly I feel I was used.
If she had told me beforehand in my attraction for her.
The outcome would have been better.
Still who writes the rules to life?
I know it should not have made a difference, I should have coped with the shock and got over it.
The truth is my heart was broken.
I wish she could have trusted me, a failing on my part.
It wasn't selfish on my part I felt her pain and trauma and what she had been through,
it is not her fault she didn't tell me, who would advertise the fact?

Yer supposed to tick the boxes!! And if you look one of the names up and tell everyone about it in a post you spoil it - cause they can't do it properly after reading your post.

Here is the full list for whoever it was who did it...

Albrecht - German
Amaruq - Eskimo (grey wolf)
Abbudin - Islamic
Arnaud - French
Arnall - English
Acheson - Scottish
Adisa - African

Background:

Quote

According to a Vice report published this week, the study's participants — all Dutch males — were told that they had to choose five persons out of six that would gain access to a life-saving lifeboat.

The men on oxytocin were more likely to deny men with Muslim or German-sounding names access and save the men with Dutch names, while the men who were given a placebo didn't pay attention to the origin of the names.


You left out the poor Eskimo... which is probably the most foreign sounding name... so maybe something in this experimental method. And maybe not...

He's trying to 'out' closet racists I suspect.
