Whatever you think about alternative lifestyles and points of view, being a FUNKY THINKER means you listen to other points of view and decide for yourself if you want to find out more.
Cathy Weiss is (I think) the first clairvoyant we have had on the show.
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!
Cathy got 20 points start because I said I was going to be stricter on the time limit as I had allowed some answers to run over in recent episodes.
Q1. Cathy chose the astronaut and the question is "What problem are you currently grappling with?"
Cathy and her husband are discussing moving to Australia. (Where the Queen is actually Head of State).
Either as a worker or a tourist. Depending on how the immigration points stack up.
Is Australia the most regulated country in the western world? That's what I had thought.
The target is 65 points (to enter Australia) and so Cathy scored 65 points. Total so far 85.
Cathy kind of new the Soviet Union shirt so scored 1/2 a point.
Q2. A short discussion arose about the orange space hooper icon. (Not for the first time with a North American audience).
Cathy chose this and the question is "What is your secret talent?"
After a short discussion about swimming pool karate and the world wife carrying championship. One of those is real - guess which, we moved onto other matters.
Cathy realised that she is a clairvoyant. I aksed what she would say to people who disagreed or doubted. A shrug of the shoulders was the reply.
A swimming pool is 25 metres long so 25 points scored.
Total after Q2. 110 1/2 points.
Q3. Unlike most women, Cathy did not pick the shoe. (If someone sells shoes like these, please get in touch).
Cathy chose the typewriter. The question is "What is some insider knowledge that only you have?"
"Humans have the capacity for ANYTHING" <<< Cathy's intonation. Not mine.
Total after question 3 136 1/2 points.
Q4. Cathy picked the laundrette and the question is "How do you judge a person?"
Cathy answered - by their energy. I referred back to Funky Thinker 139 Michael Barnes and the circle of energy.
Discussion about food and Funky Thinker 129 Lana from Montana. Therefore 29 points scored.
Total after question 4. 165 1/2
Q5. Cathy picked the roller skates and the question is "What got ruined because it became popular?"
Cathy answered YOGA and what followed was the most epic (constructive) rant about how yoga had become a fashion parade and instagram fest compared to what it was in the 90's
95 points scored. Total 260.

A solid episode from Cathy with consistent scores all round. Not troubling the upper reaches of the leaderboard but good for 6th.
