    Your soul is worth £31521. For your peace of mind, 26% of people have a purer soul than you.

    It's 100 questions, and is probably work safe (?) I took it here at work. And, for what it's worth, I am 49% pure.
    What happened to this poll you sickies?
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    I think it would have gone better in its own thread....

    This is an old thread, I know.

    When new members join Cyburbia, and I want to make sure they're spammers, I'll check the logs and see where they first landed on the site. There's a pattern. Human spammers usually land at Cyburbia's front page, and then register immediately. For many from African countries, this is the thread they land on before they register. Google the user names or email addresses, and the results are often ... strange.

    Now, I've started banning or deleting those users who apparently found Cyburbia through a search for "sell your soul for money". (This thread is on the second page of search results for the term on Google.) It's an interesting phenomenon.

    So, a note to those visiting from Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, and other countries in West Africa:

    Cyburbia is an urban planning message board, with a lot of off-topic chatter.

    Cyburbia's owner (me), volunteer staff, and users are not buying souls. All of us are mere mortals, as far as I know, with no power or authority to buy souls, nor are any of us intercessors for The Great Adversary Mephistopheles, The Prince of Darkness and Lord of the Underworld.

    Since the majority of us are urban planners, even if we had the power to buy your soul, we couldn't afford it.

    Unfortunately, we don't know anyone who is buying souls. Sorry.

    If you truly believe that you can sell your soul, consider that the typical lifespan for adults in the United States is ... oh, 80 years, give or take. Supposedly, when you sell your soul, it's forever. What is forever? Well, here's some varying viewpoints. but the majority of astrophysicists believe that the heat death of the universe will happen in 10100 years, or in regular notation, 10,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000 years. So, let's say you sell your soul for ... oh, $1,000,000. That means you're getting paid .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 cents for every year you'll be inhabiting the afterworld, which I'm told is a lot like Lagos. Sounds like a ripoff to me, no matter how crappy your life may be here on the material plane.

    And it looks like one of the mods banned another potential soul seller form Nigeria.

    Here's a link which might help our West African guests who are looking for some quick cash.

    What's the typical rate of return in the afterlife though? Isn't a million enough to just live off the interest? Surely the material needs in the afterlife pale in comparison to the present.
