No Simple Choice: A selection of life questions to ponder
A selection of collected questions that present scenarios that will test your morals, values and/or goofiness. Behind every answer is an insight into the psyche of the person who has made the selection. Nosimplechoice compares your answers against the general public and give you an indication of how similar or different you are. Login to save and set your profile. You can add your own questions to be added into the cycle of questions for the website.

A book Ive always enjoyed was "The Book of Questions" which presented similar situations. These questions are thought provoking, but there shouldn't be a 'right' answer, but an answer that is right for the person. Probing without judging will give you a deeper insight into your peers minds and let you get to know each other better, and even find out a bit about yourself you may not have realized.

you go to a legal brothel, choose the hottest prostitute to have sex with, after meeting her, she tells you in tears, that shes only doing this for money to pay for cancer treatments for her mom

Um, what? This is a neat idea but I think it badly needs some sort of voting system to rank questions so that unbelievable ones like this can get downranked and dropped.

Having to scroll down each time to see the stats is annoying, especially with all that blank space to the right. Other than that, and the quality control issue, it was diverting enough for what it is.

My first question was thought-provoking. My second question makes no sense whatsoever "If you were stuck for the rest of your life on a desert isle the rest of your live, would you rather have sleep with an armless [OG] or sleep with an legless [OG]"

So yeah, let people contribute, but vet the questions first, or let people rank them, or at least let people SKIP the crappy ones.

Skip seems to be a good option to implement. Vetting some of these questions may be a good idea too. Thanks for the feedback.

Behind every answer is an insight into the psyche of the person who has made the selection.

I'm not sure I agree with this. Just because the majority agrees or disagrees with an impossible question doesn't actually give insight to the psyche of a the person answering the questions. And I agree with davejay - a skip option would be great.

I agree that it's annoying having to scroll down to see the past answers to the question. It would also be good to see how many people had voted on the question before as well.
Overall, Nice idea for a site.
