@auntiehill: Please don't take this the wrong way, but...well, if it was easy, what would be the point?
Um...happiness? Being happy with reality and not putting unnecessary obstacles in people's way--that would be the point.

Life is already difficult. Why fuck things up even more with arbitrary, useless rules based on fairly tales and superstition? Is the wonder of nature, our entire planet and the universe itself not interesting enough? People need to make up random ghosts, monsters and rituals to give meaning to their lives?

That would be the point, I think.

But that's enough thread derailment. Let's put this train back on the tracks.

The test takers who, luckily for them, are being tested on English and not math, when they say things like, "---and studies prove that two-thirds of the people agree with me, and that's almost half!" Huh?

Or history:
"Rosa Parks, the heroine from Gone with the Wind, ran the underground railroad in the '30s." Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong.
