    So once every day (at the very least, some days it might be twice), for the rest of this month I'll be asking a question in this thread.
    If you answer it correctly before I make my next post, you'll be entered into a drawing.
    Winner will be chosen via RNG.
    If you were the first person to post the correct answer, you'll get 3 entries into drawing. 2nd to answer correctly gets 2 and the remaining people get 1. If you answer incorrectly, you won't be put into the drawing. So basically you'll want to answer as fast as you can.
    You can try googling it, but generally you'll have to research a bit first.
    Questions can vary in a wide variety of topics, so if one day you find the question too hard for you, you may find an easier one on another day.
    Unless a question is golden, It'll be generally non-premium only. Additionally don't make alts. I am an admin so I can find those pretty quickly and easily. Anyways that's the gist of it.

    So to start it off:
    If a son wants to kill their father in order to sleep with their mother or a daughter wants to kill their mother to sleep with their father, this would be known as what kind of complex?

    Fyi, the the complex that starts with an E is not the one I'm looking for.

    You're obviously asking for Oedipus complex unless I misread your question.

    Cleaned the thread of off-topic, please dun litter it again. :huh?:
    ----

    You're referring to two different complexes there, Kouji, iirc psychoanalytic theory*: Electra & Oedipus. But seeing as you're not looking for one with an E, I guess the answer is Oedipus.

    *NB: Yeah, yeah. I know that Freud detested the Jungian usage of Electra to refer to the female exhibition of the phenomenon, but that's just because he was chauvinistically obsessed with all things phallic. Neo-Freudian ftw! I mean, um, eww; 80-90% of those theories are pure tosh. >_>

    After reading the question I instantly thought about the greek myth, although I couldnt remember the names, I just had to do some searching on google, and I swiftly found out about the Oedipus Complex.

    Definitely Oedipus Complex. If there's anything I remember from the literature class, it's this.

    um... are you allowed to 'copy' the general answer... if so i'd say it would have to be Oedipus complex xD

    Been busy fixing a few things since the forum update, hence why I haven't started the next question (people are busy with other stuff Graver). Anyways, as most of you said, the answer was the Oedipus Complex. RNG decided to favor FBB today, so I'll give you a code later. Guessing you could give to one of your other 500 siblings.

    Anyways next question (answer is fairly easy, doesn't have to be exact, but just close): What kind of traffic makes up most of internet traffic and what is the percentage of this traffic? e.g: Cat Videos make up 99% of traffic or something like that.

    Hmm, well I remember reading somewhere that the old thing of 90% of the internet being porn is no longer the case as the internet has grown a lot bigger since those numbers were gathered-- something like porn is now only ~37%.

    Anyway, iirc bots make up ~50% of traffic these days, so we'll go with that?
