    Default Dementrivia I (Round 6) (Eastern Religions and Causal Relationships)

    Welcome to the Dementrivia, the stretch pants of quiz shows.

    What is this about? You can read the long description or accept the short explanation:
    Each round, I give you one question. You send me an answer that is wrong, but as funny and entertaining as possible. After some time, I will gather your entries and reveal them. Then you may vote for your favorite answer, thus awarding it points.

    After five rounds, Raistlin has accomplished a strong lead but one or two sweeping rounds can change the standings entirely.


    Question 6: Buddhism is based on the Four Noble Truths. The first Noble Truth, on which the others build up, links all suffering to a central cause. Which is this central cause responsible for suffering?

    Please send your answers as a message until Saturday, 6 PM Eastern


    Note that this is a game without signups. You can send answers/vote anytime.

    Time's up. Let's have a look at your suggestions:

    Question: Buddhism is based on the Four Noble Truths. The first Noble Truth, on which the others build up, links all suffering to a central cause. Which is this central cause responsible for suffering?

    True Answer: Desire is the central cause responsible for all suffering. Therefore, Buddhists strive to desire nothing.


    And what were your ideas?

    Pointed sticks. Pointed sticks are the cause of all suffering. Because they hurt. Especially if you get on in your eye. In fact, the Dalai Lama once said: 'Do not play the sharp-stick-in-the-eye game, because you might get a sharp stick in your eye. And that hurts. Trust me, I know.' And you should listen to the Dalai Lama, because he's wise and stuff.

    It is the headache caused by eating ice cream too quickly. Its symbolic of man's desire to seek that which will hurt him.

    The cause of human suffering is the fact that our noodly master will not reveal himself to anyone but the chosen few one. Oh, but I might gaze on his prodigious carb-ness.

    The central cause for all suffering is the sun. It was stupid enough to support life, so that life could suffer!

    The central cause of suffering, is, in fact, death, disease and the like. I don't have a clue where Yoda got that random crap from.

    Jack Thompson. The bane of video-gamers everywhere.




    16 answers to choose from. This time, however, I had to condense two entries to one option since they were too similar. The two players will receive half of the points each.

    Choose your favorite and name it in the thread. You have time until Tuesday, 6 PM Eastern.

    4, 5, 9 and 16 all seem good.

    Although I think I will have to go with #9.

    Silkenfist, both 10 and 13 are exactly the same. Word for word.

    OK, after triple checking I've convinced myself that there is no additional answer. We scratch 10 and continue with 15 options.

    Khantalas: Your answer was merged with another one since I felt they were too similar to be run separately. You will share points with the other player equally.
