1. "A scientist places an ad in a Paris newspaper offering a free horoscope. He receives about 150 replies, each, as requested, detailing a place and time of birth. Every respondent is then sent the identical horoscope, along with a questionnaire asking how accurate the horoscope had been. Ninety-four per cent of the respondents (and 90 per cent of their families and friends) reply that they were at least recognizable in the horoscope. However, the horoscope was drawn up for a French serial killer. If an astrologer can get this far without even meeting his subjects, think how well someone sensitive to human nuances and not overly scrupulous might do."

2. "Now I certainly had no intention of lying on the form, but I was trying to think of a creative way to make homemaker sound more important. Then the thought struck me: I am more concerned about the opinion of the individual who will read this questionnaire than I am about the approval of the One who has called me to be a homemaker. I had succumbed to worldly thinking rather than viewing my profession as the Bible portrays it—a high calling from God."

Then you can choose the topic of discussion for the remaining time.' ‘But then it won't matter,' said Frances. ‘I'll have been eliminated.' ‘Only as a potential partner. We may still be able to have an interesting discussion.' ‘But I'll have been eliminated.' I nodded. ‘Do you smoke?' ‘Occasionally,' she said. I put the questionnaire away. ‘Excellent.' I was pleased that my question sequencing was working so well. We could have wasted time talking about ice-cream flavours and make-up only to find that she smoked. Needless to say, smoking was not negotiable. ‘No more questions. What would you like to discuss?"

While Douglas was holding me hostage, I'd met a girl—I mean, screw dating websites and house parties; apparently all the really eligible ladies are being held in cages these days.

I like long walks on the beach and destroying my enemies. I have four older brothers, so watch your step. We'll be forming a queue to the left for potential suitors."And, trust me, there would be a queue."
