Have a quiz, it’s good for you.

It has been a busy day at our house and will be a busy evening. The most exciting news today is that we picked our first strawberry off the plant in the backyard, and absolutely nothing compares to a sun-warmed, vine-ripened strawberry.

Ethan, I’m proud to say, was impressed.

    Arrgh. The stupid tags didn’t work.

    And the person who wrote that test didn’t proofread it very well. Ah, the net.

    huh? where did that 25% come from? I need to retake the quiz. The teacher is punishing me just because I’m mostly liberal.

    Wow… I was 100% liberal and 0% conservative on everything.

    Well, I got a 95% liberal, but…

    what a poorly constructed quiz. What if you don’t think gun ownership is dangerous or sketchy really, but also don’t see it as a sign of any particular preparedness for self-defense that a non gun owner somehow doesn’t have? Dumb question. Also, what if you think that there really are too manyplea bargains and loose interpretations of the law, but think of that as a transgression committed on the law-enforcement side more often than the defense side (which the question didn’t specify), and also think that the rights of prisoners aren’t considered enough? And what exactly did that question about luck mean, anyway?

    I know, it’s just a dumb internet quiz. Sorry if I ruined it for anyone…

    I didn’t really like that quiz, it was far too black and white on some rather gray areas. Social Security can only be fixed by charging the rich more or it’s transfer account. Sorry, not flying. They could’ve had 3 or 4 choices to at least approximate the illusion of moderation.

    I still think that the Political Compass is a more fair evaluation.

    55% Conservative 45% Liberal.

    Wasn’t comfortable with the choices. Two questions the choices were such I couldn’t answer at all.

    I got exactly the same thing you did in all categories. Help, silly internet quiz is draining me of my individuality!
