The key is how quick you respond. If you have time to think I'd end up with some decent ones with aliens and wormholes but asked outright you'd be surprised how many people do come out with the correct response.
My sister said 'it was because she was jealous of her sister'. I wonder what that means, a possibly darker answer lol.

Further thoughts on Popcorn's question.

If the 'correct' answer is an irrational action, then the possibilities become endless.

The man was a vampire and her sister had been bitten, so she staked her.

The reason for not seeing her mother for several years was that she had been kidnapped and was acting under a post hypnotic suggestion to kill the prime minister (her sister).

Her sister had been replaced by a shape-shifting reptile. The man tipped her off.

The woman was a suicide bomber intent on killing a large number of people, stopped off on the way to say goodbye to her sister and had a slight mishap with the detonator.

Her mother and sister were both to be killed in separate rituals to release Yog-Sothoth upon the Earth and the only way to prevent it was for her sister to die before the next new moon. Both the woman and the man worked for the Laundry.

So was yours. I had not thought of the possibility of accidental death as in a car crash.

Normally when you get problems of this type the idea is to find an explanation that involves rational behaviour on the part of the actors.

It's supposed to be a question that indicates psychotic tendencies (if you answer correctly). I hasten to add that i *remembered* the answer rather that coming up with it myself.

{honest}

The first point about denying hundreds of other gods but being outraged when someone questions yours nulls every argument a fundamentalist can make. Either they're all real (different interpretations of the same creator 'God') or none are.

Karen,

I was thinking along the lines of her mother having died of some hereditary condition with which her sister had been diagnosed (the man was her sister's doctor). It was a mercy killing. (Her sister was suffering and could not make her way home on her own which is why she was accompanied.)

[edit: removed redundant word]

It was the wording that threw me - she 'killed' her sister, rather than murdered her. I envisaged the woman in question driving her sister home and crashing the car, the man at the funeral being a red herring. The fact that she murdered her sister in order to see the man again seems a little too far fetched to me, so I'm not surprised I didn't get it!

Doesn't mean you are thick. For a person without the mind of a psychopath, the answer is unobtainable as your brain simply does not work in the same way as a psychopaths. If you instantly knew the answer, congrats, you think like a psychopath :D.
I was gearing up to say that many prisoners/criminals tend to exhibit shepherd qualities. Often feel they are above and beyond the law and find authority a problem. The answer to the question - 'To see the man again at her sisters funeral' is a clear example of taking control, only in a very irrational sense.

Are you being sarcastic again? I still can't tell.

MR Wd: For a christian you have a very nasty streak in your personality...You defend your God and religion except for those concerning understanding and forgiveness...And you wonder why I oppose your "religion"?

Pop - I looked up the answer eventually, so I got it wrong. The good news is I'm not a psychopath, the bad news - I'm a thicko.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Mr. W. D. Burchell says: "Are you so desperate for conversation? Why not go down the pub with some mates..."

Probably in the mistaken belief that you are making some sort of contribution to the 'conversation'.

Also please note... that is NOT irony.

Mr Ed; If you think a post of mine is serious and reply to it as so (or vice versa) I will simply reply to you and let you know that you have misunderstood. Simple as that. It's called "conversation" =)

Go on then AJ. What is the right answer?

Re. Beer making and fish innards - it's called isinglass, and has been used to clarify beer and wine for centuries.

RE: "Those who follow close their minds, think within the box and do what they are lead to believe is in their best interest. They think they have opinions, but truth is their opinion is actually someone elses. For some its a comfort thing, some don't feel they could lead and are happy to follow. Some are unaware they are sheep and may even feel they are leaders. These people struggle to adapt to new situations and are very much routine driven."

unbelievers. to a tee.

for instance, an avid football supporter. a tribalist:
out at sea in exile - where he is brought to nought.
his tribal football heroes are overpaid yet he invests to support them.
he is at a loss when a player of "his tribe", "defects" to another tribe.

if that's not blind, so-called "sheep behavior" then i don't know what is.

and yet sports men and sports arenas are considered "alpha realm".
coveted. envied. admired. held up as beacons of light. to be emulated.
showered with drunken praises and the cheers of the mindless.
whipping up an orgy of drunken reveling and possession by jinn.

but if you remove the supporter from the tribal context, he is at a loss. (almost like a cute little sheep-fold?). he is devoured by "wolves".
ditto post-code wars, or wars of unbelieving nations. Or football.
All of which is bolstered by a deeply ingrained, defiant, darwinian disbelief. Being mindlessly carried away by the sway of the environment. Entirely programmed by vain loyalties to localities & "heroes". staunchly tribal. void of awareness of anything beyond the five senses. led by the nose by eastenders, into an alcoholic lifestyle.

Did you know they implement fish innards in the beer-making process?

Ok karen only, answer this question:

A woman is invited to her mothers funeral who she hasn't seen in some time, at the funeral the woman sees a man she has never met before. She briefly speaks to him and instantly likes him. She doesn't feel the circumstances are right to ask for his number and doesn't.

Later that night she travels to her sisters home with her and kills her.

Why?

(And no looking up the answer, its either you get it right away or not)

I forgot a key fact, she saw her sister talking to the man at the funeral.
