MEME: Saturday Six - Episode 122

This week's "Saturday Six" is up sooner than last week's. Of course, that's not saying all that much. The first question, about comment volume, came up in a conversation earlier this week with a fellow blogger. I'm curious to see what your observations are.

But first, Carly of "Ellipsis...Suddenly Carly" was first to play last week. Congratulations, Carly!

Here are this week's "Saturday Six" questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as "first to play," you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. Has your blog received more comments, less comments, or about the same number of comments this summer?
2. What do you think best explains your answer from the last question?
I am writing less original material. People are busier. My blog only appeals to a select few...
3. With the latest terror alert about liquid bombs on airplanes, are you any less likely to schedule a flight somewhere?
No. Actually, the small seats -- the potential for an airline to rule arbitrarily that I must purchase two seats, midway through a trip, keeps me from simply going off to visit the grandmonsters. And the expense, of course.
4. Take the quiz: What color flower are you?

You Are a Purple Flower

A purple flower tends to represent success, grace, and elegance. At times, you are faithful like a violet. And other times, you represent luxury, like a wisteria. And more than you wish, you find yourself heartbroken like a lilac.

What Color Flower Are You?

5. What was the last occasion in which you sent someone flowers?
An illness requiring hospitalization.
6. A hypothetical science question: A couple has a young child that they love very much. He has a rare genetic disorder that will be fatal unless doctors can use embryonic stem cells, and the only way to get them is for his parents to donate eggs and sperm so that a lab can create another embryo. Should the parents and the doctors be allowed to create an embryo to save the child's life?
Of course, it is only a zygote.
