Kat Mclead says that she is never late and hates lateness. That's FUNKY in itself right?
Funkquest is a fun interactive online game that features five rounds. Each round consists of ONE FUNKY question.The player selects the icon which most tweaks their interest. Each Funky visual has a Funky question.
The Funky insight is that the question may or may not be related to the icon.
SO potential Funksters have to think on their feet to score points. Points are awarded by me for FUNKY answers...
Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.
Listening (without prejudice) to new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network truly qualifies as FUNKY.
Each question has a strict time limit. So no multi-headed long and complicated self indulgent stories to endure. Just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!
Kat was the first person to play with the new SHORTER two minute rounds.
Makes for FUNKIER answers.
Q1. Kat chose the astronaut and the question is "What problem are you currently grappling with?"
Kat explained that a close friend was moving away in the next few weeks and she expected to have trouble replacing the companionship.
A short discussion about what it is like to move house 3000 miles away.
7 points scored.
Kat got half a point for the Soviet Union football shirt.
Q2. Kat chose the space hopper and I again had to explain what they were.
The question is "What's your secret talent?"
Kat said she could do the splits. (And demonstrated.)
Can anyone do the splits?
Yes - IF you are consistent in the training and know that it could take several years.
100 points scored. Total 107 1/2
Better get training then.
Q3. Kat picked the red London bus and the question is "How ambitious are you really?"
Discussion about celebrity entrepreneurs on TV. Richard Branson etc.
They all made their money BEFORE the internet. So looking to them for advice and suggestions is probably looking in the wrong place.
Q4. Kat chose the laundrette. The question is "How do you judge a person?"
Kat used an interesting phrase "Is this person safe or unsafe?"
We try not to push too far into people's history on the show. It is a conversation between two people, one that is made public...
Q5. Kat picked the roller skates and the question is "What got ruined because it became popular?"
Kat replied "Indie music" which led to a discussion about looking in the backstreets of the major cities, London, New York, Chicago, Paris, to see what would be mainstream fashion in 6-12 months.
Total 266 1/2 points
A scratchy start for Kat with only 7 points on the astronaut question.
Being able to do the splits was good for 100 and it picked up from there.
Solid second half and good for 6th on the leaderboard.
If you have a problem which is deserving of Funky Insights, you should consider visiting the Funky Thinkers prism.
Unlike most of the internet, Funky Thinkers offer no magical solutions nor do we have a magic wand. (Yes remarkable I know - to even admit this...)
BUT - we do GET THE FUNK OUT...
