The thread of moral relativism

OK, this is a forum game that I've just made up. It's going to be terrible.

It goes like this.

Each post will be a list of actions, in order of morality, with saintly at the top, and utterly beastly at the bottom.

The post will also contain a new action - uncategorised so far.

The next poster has two jobs:
Place the new action where they believe it belongs on the list.
Come up with a new uncategorised action.

You can't change the order of what's already there. Your job is only to place the new one, and come up with another.

If you want to tell us the reason why you've placed it where you have, that might be interesting too.

So, for instance, a few posts in a row might go like this:

Simple, right? The intention is to have more interesting actions of course, but I don't want to start off to brightly and fizzle out!

That one depends.

What do you answer when she asks you for the secret to the new 'crunchy' coating you've come up with?

Just your friendly neighbourhood Idiot.

Never argue with idiots. They will just bring your down to their level and beat you with superior experience.

Never make fun of a short idiot. It's not big and it's not clever.
