True Colors

I came across a poll online today asking readers the question: "If you had the power to make people believe anything you told them, what would you say?"

I clicked on the link to the over 500 responses received so far, expecting to see hundreds of uplifting, encouraging, changing-the-world-for-the-better type answers.

Boy, was I wrong.

The top three most popular answers:

1. "You want to have sex with me."
2. "You owe me money/give me money."
3. "I am God, worship me."


I know you can't judge humanity by looking at a poll on the internet, but wow, I had forgotten for a second what a self-serving, materialistic, egotistical lot, we can be.
