And one more random post, while I figure out if the server’s going to settle down.

And, well, because I almost never do these anymore. Sure, I’m not actually on LJ much anymore, but I still crosspost over there. And read the friends list–hi, RSS feeds done geekily. And thus, still have an account over there. So, because I do, and because I can, and because it’s an excuse to see how bad I can break the server, have this. Enjoy.

So, arinoch, your LiveJournal reveals…

You are… 3% unique (blame, for example, your interest in being blatantly honest), 16% peculiar, 41% interesting, 9% normal and 31% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your overall weirdness is: 25

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 57% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

What is the meaning of your life?

Because I haven’t done one of these in a small forever. And because I don’t have much else to do tonight. Yeah, I know the HTML’s a little funked. I’m not fixing.


The Meaning of Your Life is Joy


The purpose of your life is simple: to live it to the fullest.
You believe that happiness is a choice, and being happy isn’t that hard to figure out.

Too many people struggle in their lives. You think they should just let go and enjoy what they’ve been given.
It’s easy to find misery, but it’s difficult to find happiness. You know that all the happiness you need comes from within.

What’s Your Life’s Mission?

Because I haven’t done one of these in forever. And because I’m bored.

You Are the Communicator
You are a collector and facilitator of knowledge. You love storytelling and teaching.
You light up when you’re around other people, and you especially light up in front of a crowd.

You are a charismatic person who’s genuinely a joy to be with. You remind others to have fun.
You love life, and you’re wake up grateful for every new day. This attitude makes the people around you love life as well.

Clearly, this is a broken quiz.

What does your bed say about you?

Done at the insistence of a few people. Damn you all.


What Your Bed Says About You


Outward appearances aren’t important to you at all. You think that the over emphasis on looks to be shallow.

Your life tends to be completely chaotic. You aren’t a very organized person, and you tend to be slow in cleaning up messes.

You are not very high maintenance in general, but you are high maintenance about a few things.

In relationships, you tend to be quite dominant. You enjoy taking charge.

You tend to be a dreamy, head in the clouds type of person. You think in terms of possibilities.

You are a bit of a homebody, but you can also make yourself at home anywhere.

Quiz, you are broken. Very, very broken. I demand a refund of my 2 minutes.

What religion should you be?


You Should Be An Atheist


So it’s not really a religion. But that’s the whole point.
You don’t buy into the whole God thing… or you just don’t care.

You may feel very alone in a world full of religious people.
But just remember, atheism has a long and rich intellectual history.

Hmm. Could work. Maybe. Or not. Zuh?

Are you a skeptic?

ZOMG we can has accuracy!


You Are 96% Skeptic


You’re no cynic, but you are a complete skeptic.
You don’t buy into anything without proof – and you’ll challenge any established “fact”.

In your view, evidence is what matters. You don’t believe things based on hope.
In fact, you wouldn’t even be likely to say you “believe” anything. Believe implies faith.

Accuracy score: barely.


What the House Test Says About You


You consider yourself important, but no more important than anyone else. You love attention, but you don’t feel like you deserve more of it than anyone else.

You aren’t against being community oriented, but it’s not really your thing. You tend to prefer to focus on your family and not the neighborhood around you.

You are a social, friendly, and giving person. You like to bring people together and make them feel happy.

You look good in a low maintenance sort of way. You do the minimum required to be attractive.

You find it hard to be enthusiastic about much. You are a picky person.

This stupid thing went and broke itself.

Are you a good listener?

… I was bored, and have 10 minutes to kill since I missed out on a job fair thanks largely to one bastard of a call. Sue me.


You Are a Great Listener


You are the perfect person to talk to.
You are patient, empathetic, and encouraging.

You provide subtle, but important, feedback.
You let people say everything that needs to be said before you weigh in.

How independent are you?


Your Independence Level: High


You are extremely self reliant and autonomous.
You are definitely into doing your own thing.
But you also wouldn’t turn down help if you needed it.
You follow your own path, but you don’t do so blindly.

So me. So, so me.

Yoink.

What does your taste in music say about you?


What Your Taste in Music Says About You


Your musical tastes are energetic and rhythmic.
You are full of energy and can be quite talkative.

You are forward thinking and open minded.
You despise conservatism of any sort.

You are intense, detail oriented, and motivated.
You are an ambitious person, though your ambition is anything but conventional.

I don’t think I’ve ever been called intense before. I’m also not quite sure how to take it. Further investigation required.

Are you a risk taker?

Close your eyes and hold on tight, ‘cuz if it looks good, I’m gone.


Your Risk Taking Level: Medium


What’s life without a few risks?
You’re willing to be daring when the time is right.

You know that there’s no reward in life without risk.
You just always make sure that you look before you leap.

Where should you live?

I’ve had the window with this quiz in it open since I got home last night. However, I likes me some procrastination, plus I’m lazy as fuck, so it gets done now.


You Should Live in the Country


You are laid back, calm, and good at entertaining yourself.
You don’t need an expensive big city to keep you busy.
You’ll take the peaceful life over the stressful life any day of the week.

I think this quiz may have implied I’m a redneck. Now, just because I was born in hicksville itself…

The It’s Its There Their They’re Quiz


You Scored an B


You got 8/10 questions correct.

Okay, so your grammar isn’t perfect, but it’s at least passable.
You probably know English and its rules well. You just are careless about applying them.
Proofread your writing a little more carefully. Your mistakes aren’t tragic, and they’re easy to fix.
Give grammar a little more effort, and you’ll keep your friends from shaking their heads over your blunders.

And that’s why I didn’t become an English major, folks. Okay, it was because I procrastinate too damn much for the major papers/essays such a program would actually need from me, but y’know.

PS: Stolen without shame from almadefortitude. Because, you know, credit where credit is due and all that.

What kind of seducer are you?

Stolen from almadefortitude, because I have absolutely 0 originality at 4:30 in the morning.


Your Seduction Style: Au Natural


You rank up there with your seduction skills, though you might not know it.
That’s because you’re a natural at seduction. You don’t realize your power!
The root of your natural seduction power: your innocence and optimism.

You’re the type of person who happily plays around and creates a unique little world.
Little do you know that your personal paradise is so appealing that it sucks people in.
You find joy in everything – so is it any surprise that people find joy in you?

You bring back the inner child in everyone you meet with your sincere and spontaneous ways.
Your childlike (but not childish) behavior also inspires others to care for you.
As a result, those who you befriend and date tend to be incredibly loyal to you.

Not very high up there on the accuracy scale, but I’ll take it. Only because I’m too lazy to do it a second time.

What kind of music are you?

Also known as the “I did way too bloody much walking” quiz.


You Are Punk Music


You’ve thought long and hard about what mainstream society has to offer…
And you’ve pretty much decided that most normal things aren’t for you.
You’re creative, expressive, and likely to do things yourself.
You are a rebel and a fighter. You’ll defend your point of view to anyone.

I agree. Except my tolerence for punk music’s rather low. I blame having it played way too much by just about everyone younger than me in my family. Ah well, the perfect quiz does not exist. This’ll do.

The keys to your life.


The Keys to Your Life


Anything good in your life comes from you having the strength to make good decisions.

You know how to assess a situation before you leap into action.

Anything bad in your life comes from fooling yourself or clinging to illusions.

Be strong enough to see the world clearly. Learn from your mistakes.

Not bad for a quiz that turns out to be all of 2 questions. Eh, it killed 30 seconds. that’s all I needed.

Are you disturbingly profound or profoundly disturbing?


You Are Disturbingly Profound


You’re contemplative, thoughtful, and very intense.
Taking time to figure out the meaning of life is a priority for you.
Because you’re so introspective, you often react in ways that surprise people.
No one can really understand how you are on the inside… and that disturbs them.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a quiz call me intense. Or anyone/thing. A little weird but I’m told that’s a good thing.

What kind of thinker are you?

‘Cuz every random collection of opinions should have a couple of these.


Your Thinking is Abstract and Sequential


You like to do research and collect lots of information.
The more facts you have, the easier it is for you to learn.

You need to figure things out for yourself and consider all possibilities.
You tend to become an expert in the subjects that you study.

It’s difficult for you to work with people who know less than you do.
You aren’t a very patient teacher, and you don’t like convincing people that you’re right.

Huh. Almost accurate. I are concerned.

What’s normal about you… and what’s not?


You Are Fairly Normal


You scored 40% normal on this quiz

Like most people you are normal in some ways…
But you aren’t a completely normal person. You’re a little weird too!

Why You Are Normal:

You think fishnet stockings are trashy

You would rather be pale than tan

You know a lot about a few subjects

You prefer ruffled potato chips

You would rather be an astronaut than a movie star

Why You Aren’t Normal:

You don’t keep up with your horoscope

You’d rather have cockroaches than rats in your home

When you’re in a car, you prefer to be the passenger

You don’t think glasses make anyone more attractive

You are no longer with your first love

I have no idea what’s normal anyway. But I don’t think you can put much faith in a quiz who’s questions only ever have 2 answers. It’s a 50/50 thing. I don’t do well with 50/50. I don’t do well with normal either. I blame anyone who isn’t me.

What punctuation mark are you?

I’ve taken 1 call today. I’ve fixed 1 royally screwed up computer today. I deserve a quiz.


You Are An Exclamation Point


You are a bundle of… well, something.
You’re often a bundle of joy, passion, or drama.

You’re loud, brash, and outgoing. If you think it, you say it.
Definitely not the quiet type, you really don’t keep a lot to yourself.

You’re lively and inspiring. People love to be around your energy.
(But they do secretly worry that you’ll spill their secrets without even realizing it.)

You excel in: Public speaking

You get along best with: the Dash

I’m, uh, scared to ask. So I’ll just not.

Who should you vote for?

Probably the top question I get asked at work nowadays, nevermind the fact a few of my US friends and I have had conversations like these (hello, Anne) on more than one occasion. And since I’m pretty well US politics stupid, this is the best way I could think of to answer that question. Well, that, and I don’t do enough of these.
