Excuse me, but that quiz has more to do with western thinkers than Buddhas teachings.

If you didn't care
What happened to me
And I didn't care for you

We would zig-zag our way
Through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain

Wondering which of the
Buggers to blame
And watching for pigs on the wing

They will not give answers unless you give your email.
Useless quiz. Do not waste your time.

When one compare one thing to another, what happens with both of them then?

Maybe a question they should have asked themselves before making another pointless test ... :)

It's not pointless. It's clickbait - selling eyeballs to advertisers, harvesting email addresses for direct online marketing and scammers ...
read all about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clickbait
Clickbait is a pejorative term for web content whose main goal is to get users to click on a link to go to a certain webpage or video. Clickbait headlines typically aim to exploit the "curiosity gap," providing just enough information to make readers curious, but not enough to satisfy their curiosity without clicking through to the linked content. ...

Had the pleasure being a web-journalist for a local football team a few years ago, with special responsibility for media and so on. Great time with a lot of funny people, and we all laughed our heads off over our abilities to mask the reality, and make the supporters click on "you wouldn't want to know how pointless" - articles and short videos. It's just amazing how much soup one can make out of one rusty nail ... :tongue:

But now that kind of fun is over, lost the ability to smile over our society's dire situation when we're this much out of track
