Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

cpratt recently created one of those quizzes you are supposed to test your friends' knowledge of yourself with.

I thought blogging was the height of narcissism, but this "friend test" phenomenon surpasses it.

That's why it's important to intervene in the process. Chris's solution was to ask questions that are almost impossible to answer, thereby exposing the dark workings of this you-can't-possibly-know-the-real-me deal.

Or was he just having fun?

After tying for highest score on his test -- quoting myself quoting Chris, "Go me!" -- I decided to construct my own, which is both easier to pass and more personally incriminating.

Welcome to my underground lair. . .

Oh, I was just trying to come up with something more interesting than "What kind of car do I drive" and "How tall am I?"

As a quiz it failed pretty badly. If I do it again, I'll construct it more on a curved grading scale, and make everyone wind up with at least a 60.

You know, if you'd asked questions about William James, I'd have been better prepared to answer them.

I suppose 55 is low for someone who's known you for better than ten years, isn't it?

Retesting

If anyone who takes the test made the mistake of not reading the word "least" in question #3, I will erase your score and let you retake it, provided that you answer the other questions the same way.

Let me know. . .

81 from the homefront

I got an 81, and I'm married to you for godsake. In all these 14+ years we've been together, I just never got around to asking you what caliber you prefer. What the fuck is wrong with me?!?!

NB: The "Go me!" is not my invention - it was stolen from here.
