Question the waiter, hold off the final decision until you are answered. 2. There is a black box in front of you, sitting on a white pedestal shaped like a doric column. Something from your childhood is in it. What's in the box? Ain't gonna happen. 3. Pick a number between 1 and 3 and explain in more than ten words, but less than twenty why you chose it. 1.77245 -- It is approximately the square root of pi, as well as the Gamma Function evaluated at one half. 4. If you could choose one historical figure to be your boss for one day, who would it be? James Madison 5. You find a wallet on the ground, inside is ten dollars and a note that reads "If this wallet is lost, please return to 123 Broad st. for a $11 reward". would you return it, keep the money and toss the wallet, or put the wallet back where you found it? Oh, return it. 6. Pick one city in the world outside the U.S. that would symbolize to a total stranger, the essensce of who you envision yourself to be. From limited knowledge, I'd pick Cambridge.
1. You are patient and wait to make decisions based on all the information at hand. 2. You are either paranoid or lack imagination. Both of which are plusses. 3. You may have great "thinking outside the box" skills. Or you could just be a nerd. You are also good at following instructions. 4. You like being bossed around by short people. Also, if you are second in command, you should watch your back. Both of Madison's VP's died in office. 5. Sometimes you don't know when to stop. Businesswise, it makes more sense to take the money and drop the wallet, for the most profit/least energy expended formula. You are, however, a nice human being. I congratulate you, however, you are just not ruthless enough to make it on the Apprentice.

Props to you, Tokyo. You just dig out this stuff or is there a program out there on the Web? 1. Yeah, patient. But also boring. 2. Paranoid! Paranoid! 3. Yes, yes, and, yes. 4. Damn funny. Don't know if it's true, but it is funny. And correct. Jamie was a really bossy short guy. 5. Yeah I never know when to stop. Been called a 'freight train' on occasion

I just made this crap up. Then again, I'm a ninja and I've been secretly following you around. Paranoid.

As has been noted, the art is all in the analysis.

I thought is was a beneficient god, or at least a guardian spirit. Knowing that it's just some large Japanese, weak ass ninja, is sort of disappointing. If Tokyo shows himself around these parts, I'll just have to round house him. I got a free lesson when I bought my Chuck Norris jeans.

ROTFLMAO. Oh definitely a beneficient God, but that's not why I peer over my shoulders and stay out of alleys. Anyway I thought Tokyo was a triad. Maybe that's someone else. I guess it doesn't matter since they're all out to get me... Paranoia strikes deep Into your life it will creep It starts when you're always afraid You step out line the ninja come and whip yo' ass

Three facts:
Ninjas never show themselves.
Bruce Lee beat Chuck Norris.
LA Guy wishes he was as cool as me.

Eat.

that transformer i lost.
3. Pick a number between 1 and 3 and explain in more than ten words, but less than twenty why you chose it.

4. If you could choose one historical figure to be your boss for one day, who would it be?
Jesus Christ would be pretty interesting

6. Pick one city in the world outside the U.S. that would symbolize to a total stranger, the essensce of who you envision yourself to be.

The official Tokyo Slim Pre-Employment personality test results.

1. You are either really high, or totally easy going and not very picky.
2. You are really high.
3. Three is not between one and three, only numbers between one and three count. Are you high?
4. Only a stoner would want Jesus Christ for his boss for a day. I bet Jerry Garcia or Snoop Dogg was your runner up.
5. You would know where the shitty hoods in RI are, because thats where you BOUGHT YOUR WEED!
6. Berlin? I could have sworn you said Amsterdam. What were we just talking about?

1. You are preparing to sit down and eat at an extremely fancy restaraunt. The food that is brought to you is not what you ordered, but nonetheless looks and smells delicious. Do you send it back or eat it?

I bring it to the waiter's attention, threatening to become imperious if not fully satisfied.

2. There is a black box in front of you, sitting on a white pedestal shaped like a doric column. Something from your childhood is in it. What's in the box?

My grandfather's '32 Packard Twin Six Dietrich Convertible Victoria.

3. Pick a number between 1 and 3 and explain in more than ten words, but less than twenty why you chose it.

2 because it took the least time and effort. I wrote 11 words.

4. If you could choose one historical figure to be your boss for one day, who would it be?

Natsume Soseki

5. You find a wallet on the ground, inside is ten dollars and a note that reads "If this wallet is lost, please return to 123 Broad st. for a $11 reward". would you return it, keep the money and toss the wallet, or put the wallet back where you found it?

I take the $10 and then return the empty wallet for the $11 reward. Total take $21.

6. Pick one city in the world outside the U.S. that would symbolize to a total stranger, the essensce of who you envision yourself to be.

You misspelled "essence."

Its about time someone got every question right. You win! Teddy Roosavelt or Leonardo DaVinci would have also been acceptable as "boss for a day" Now, Pussycat's (ex?) Boyfriend... you get to take over running my chocolate factory!
