Because it is my nature

One day, a scorpion stood on the side of a stream and asked a frog to carry it to the other side. 'How do I know you won't sting me?' the forg asked. 'Because if I sting you, I'll drown,' the scorpion said.

The frog thought about it and realized that the scorpion was right.  So he put the scorpion on his back and started ferrying him.  But midway across the stream, the scorpion plunged its stinger into the frong's back.  As they both began to drown, the frog gasped, 'Why?'

The scorpion replied, 'Because it is my nature.'

That is all.


Excerpt from a book I've been reading:

Some women like to make extremely sexual comments after meeting a man.  It is a shit test.  If the guy becomes uncomfortable, he fails; however, if he takes the bait and gets excited or says something sexual in response, he also fails. ...I discovered the solution: Just look her in the eye, nod approvingly, and, with a slight smile creeping across your face, say, "Respect," in a smart-ass tone.
I have seen many a friend do this, or should I say, I have failed this shit test and seen plenty others fail.  I want to test this.
