than amusing, since you have to put up with all of the men in the world.




1. Alien beings from a highly advanced society visit the Earth, and you are
the first human they encounter. As a token of intergalactic friendship, they

all over the entire Earth. You decide to:

    a home run to win the World Series, you may hug him provided that

 7. You have been seeing a woman for several years. She's
   attractive and intelligent, and you always enjoy being with
   her.  One leisurely Sunday afternoon the two of you are taking
   it easy--you're watching a football game;she's reading the
   papers--when she suddenly, out of the clear blue sky, tells
   you that she thinks she really loves you,  but, she can no
   longer bear the uncertainty of not knowing where your
   relationship is going. She says she's not asking whether
   you want to get married; only whether you believe that you
   have some kind of future together.   What do you say?

 A. That you sincerely believe the two of you do have a future,
      but you don't  want to rush it.
 B. That although you also have strong feelings for her,
    you cannot honestly say that you'll be ready anytime soon to
    make a lasting commitment, and  you don't want to hurt her
    by holding out false hope.

    third and seventeen.




 8. Okay, so you have decided that you truly love a woman and you
    want to spend the rest of your life with her - sharing the joys
    and the sorrows, the triumphs and the tragedies, and all the
    adventures and opportunities that the world has to offer, come
    what may. How do you tell her?

      has to be handled with tweezers.
 C. It is never okay to throw away veteran underwear. A real
    guy checks the garbage regularly in case somebody--and we are
    not naming names, but this would be his wife--is quietly
    trying to discard his underwear, which she is frankly jealous
    of, because the guy seems to have a more intimate relationship
    with it than with her.

	the special five-point bonus for knowing the joke about the guy
