shamelessly stolen from a mailing list I'm on.
-----
Hey this is actually a psychological test...
The main character in the story is this girl...when
she was at the funeral of her own mother...she met
this guy who was also there...but she did not know who
he was.
Well...this guy happened to fit her bill of her dream
guy so she fell in love with him at once... love at
first sight, so to speak.
A few days later...the girl killed her own sister.
When the cops asked her why she did that...she gave a
very shocking answer...
So... what is her motive in killing her sister? Think of an answer.
,,,,
( ,' ' )
(')==()

,,,,
( ,' ' )
(')==()
Answer:
She was hoping that the guy would appear at
the funeral again...she wanted to see him.
Please...if you answered this correctly...
go to the cops and tell them to lock you up ok?
This was a test by famous American psychologists...
Used to test if one has the same mentality as a
killer. In fact...a lot of arrested serial killers
took part in this test...and had answered it
correctly...
If you didn't answer correctly, good for you! if your
friends hit the jackpot, please stay away from them,
If you answered correctly, please stay away from me.

But what does it mean, if you think the motive was because she and her sister aren't really close, so she didn't know that that man was really her sister's husband, so in order for her to be with him she killed her sister?

I guess it means you're not yet ready to be a serial killer. Keep studying though.

You'll never take over the moderator's forum. Our army of darkness (ok, it's Map) will crush you.
