The same tag has landed from gils and from R-ambam. Not a tagger, but I make an exception attempt to respond to the tag. And I have tagged 4 others at the end as well.

Original Rule 2 is flaunted. And I'll read my own Miranda rights. Those of you who see English movies that have cops, should know this by heart. :)
Me (reading rights): "You have the right to remain silent. blah blah... Do you understand this clearly?"
Me: Yes, I understan

RULE 1- You can only say Guilty or Innocent.
RULE 2- You are not allowed to explain anything unless someone messages you and asks!
[Waived. You should tell the history or have a comment in either case.]

Asked someone to marry you?
Guilty. vera yaaru, Señora thaan! Asked in a different way though. :)

Ever kissed someone of the same sex?
Guilty. Kids... Is this a trick question? :-O

Danced on a table in a bar?
Innocent. Dance? Yes. Bar? I'll be barred from home if I step into one. :)

Ever told a lie?
Guilty. Lie low when you lie. :)

Had feelings for someone whom you can’t have back?
Guilty. Adhu oru nilaa kaalam! 8-)

Kissed a picture?

Slept in until 5 PM?
Innocent. Depends on how you see it. Do afternoon naps count? If so, guilty.

Fallen asleep at work/school?
Guilty. The eyelids droop low enough for the eyes to close, the sounds fade away, the mouth slightly open, the brain grinds to a halt, I float in a snooze and then the head snaps and jerks and a few moments of blinking and then back to redo the snooze. :-D

Held a snake?
Innocent. Would love to. :-)

Been suspended from school?
Innocent. From the class (by standing out), yes, for some random talking, two or three times, maybe. :D

Worked at a fast food restaurant?
Innocent. I have not worked inside a fast food restaurant like Barista, CCD or Starbucks either. (office work, that is?) :)

Stolen from a store?
Guilty. EppavO EppOdho! ;)

Been fired from a job?
Innocent. Fired at job? yes. :)

Done something you regret?
Guilty. Once in a while, the guilt trips. :-D

Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose?
Guilty. In younger days.

Caught a snowflake on your tongue?
Guilty. Aama, idhula ennaa guilt? Was in a few snow blizzards and snow went into eyes, ears, nose, mouth and hence tongue as well. But, I dread those Patel photos in snow. Once, almost collapsed with frost-bite when I picked up hardened snow with bare hands and held them for a few seconds for a photo. Took more than 2 hours for the hands to begin to feel something. :) :)

Kissed in the rain?

Sat on a roof top?
Guilty. Not just rooftop sitting, I jump to my neighbouring terrace from mine, even now, to fix cable wiring pulled out by monkeys. :-)

Kissed someone you shouldn’t?
Innocent. Namakkaen vambu?

Sang in the shower?
Innocent. But when the water is cold, have shouted gibberish aloud in the shower to lessen the shock of the cold water splash on skin. :-) brrrr. Ninaiththaaley Nadungum. :D

Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on?
Innocent. Grrr at that thought itself.

Shaved your head?
Guilty, if you consider the tonsures at temples.

Had a boxing membership?
Innocent. Adhellaam edhukku?

Made a girlfriend cry?
Innocent. Thiruppi oru vambu question!

Been in a band?
Innocent. In my earlier company, the employees were divided into bands based on experience and potential(!). If you are asking of that band, yes, I am guilty. :-)

Shot a gun?
Guilty. The guns with 'ball-bearing' balls you see in fairs and the Deepavali ones with roll caps. :) Oh! I have also fired 3 shots from a real rifle (maybe as heavy as me) in a firing range as a cadet at school NCC.

Donated Blood?
Guilty. There is nothing to be guilty about it. Done it a few times.

Eaten alligator meat?
Innocent. I am a PETA guy. :)

Eaten cheesecake?
Guilty. I don't remember the last time, but may have eaten it.

Still love someone you shouldn’t?
Innocent. If I loved someone, I love them forever. Should/shouldn't doesn't matter. :-D :-D

Have/had a tattoo?

Liked someone, but will never tell who?
Guilty. Vambula maati uduradhaey sila paerukku vaelai. :)

Been too honest?
Guilty. Adhu enna too honest? You are either honest or dishonest. That's all. Been there, did there on both sides. :-D

Ruined a surprise?

Ate in a restaurant and got really bloated that you couldn’t walk afterward?
Guilty. Mooku pidikka eat, then come home and sleep. :-)

Erased someone in your friends list?
Innocent. Irukkaradhaey konja nanja friends. idhula erase verayaa? oru vaelai chinna vayasula pakkaththu seatla irundha payyan, ponnu slateai vaenaa erase pannaalum panniyiruppaen. :-) :-)

Dressed in a woman’s clothes (if you’re a guy) or man’s clothes (if you’re a girl)?
Innocent. Female cross-dressers - Widely Accepted, Male cross-dressers - EverybodyThinksYouAreNutsOrGay. :-)

Joined a pageant?
Guilty. In a dictionary, definition of pageant is wider than what you think (damn those who drilled the term "beauty pageant" into our heads). Go, read it. :-)

Been told that you’re handsome or beautiful by someone who totally meant what they said?
Guilty. :D :D :D (by the only woman I know really well, hope so)

Had communication with your ex?
Innocent. No ex, so no communication. Yoi, kudumbaththula kuzhappaththai unduu pannaadheengapa! :D

Got totally drunk on the night before exam?
Innocent. Not even water. :) Naan thanniyum adikka maataen, thanniyum kudikka maataen. :)

Got totally angry that you cried so hard?
Innocent. Mmm. Why would one cry while angry? :O
