You know I have a migraine when I'm sitting here being entertained by web quizzes.
But I included comments to make it more interesting. No, really. Insightful comments. This is, like, real content. It's almost an actual journal post... *sigh* Ow, my head. :P
(Is there an easy way to post this? The quiz didn't provide any HTML so I cut page source.)
| You made it. Barely. |
Congratulations! You scored 55!
| Whether it was the fact that you could run faster, or were just plain lucky, you made it out alive. Even you aren't sure why. But you're sure as hell not going back, or risking your ass for anyone else from now on. |
Take the Zombie Scenario Survival Test
So I get NO points on firearms ability. But I do know packing to hike, moving light and practical, and getting a band together. That's how you beat those rotten buggers! (Besides, surely some of my friends know what to do with those boom-stick things.)
| Ultimate Gamer!! |
GM says drop 2d10, aanndd... you roll 86% !
| What, are you a first generation gamer? Did you own the brown box?! Whatever you do in your spare time, gaming seems to be your job. Either you looked up the answers or you're the best of the best, the type that makes other gamers strive to know more. Just don't let the knowledge overwhelm the newbies, it tends to push them from the hobby. We all bow before you. You are the living nat 20, congradulations. I'm going to flee the scene now ;) |
Take the Real Gamers Use Dice Quiz
Yay! Gamer geek. Though I must admit, some of that was due to good guessing. There's a lot of systems that I haven't played; fortunately, I've hung out at game stores and conventions enough to recognize some of those names. :)
| You scored as agnosticism. You are an agnostic. You neither believe nor disbelieve in God. You don't believe it is possible to prove the existence of God (nor lack thereof).|
Agnosticism is a philosophy that God's existence cannot be proven. Some say it is possible to be agnostic and follow a religion; however, one cannot be a devout believer if he or she does not truly believe.
Which religion is the right one for you? (new version)
created with QuizFarm.com
Wow... That's a quiz that's about right. ('cept for that Satanism thing. Dunno why that's on my list!) Agnostic is my label of choice and Buddhism is the religion I find most interesting. (Zen Buddhism, specifically.) Paganism is interesting, not quite my thing, though I can relate to it. (I think that's my furry side showing on the quiz.)
(Besides, surely some of my friends know what to do with those boom-stick things.)
Though I generally think of myself as a pacifist, I scored a 146 out of 175 the first time I picked up a semi-auto M-16. (also to date the only time, but that's beside the point).
Feed me and I will shoot them. Fair deal?
(I only scored a 51...damn my compassionate nature!)
As for the Satanism...Satanism is not a literal worship of Satan as much as a belief in the divinity of self, and seeking the divine within your own sphere and inner life rather than turning to an external divinity of some kind. (Which was, in theory, the belief Satan was following when he rebeled against Heaven, since there Yahweh said there could be only one.)
Well, I was impressed -- until I also scored pagan, agnostic and Buddhist as my top three choices. :-)
I guess the big question is, can religious faith ultimately be reduced to agreement or disagreement with a series of propositions? I don't know that it can. And even if it can be, it's hardly fair for Buddhism's propositions to be things like "I try not to hurt anyone" and Christianity's to be "Women were created for man."
Yeah, a lot of the "Christian" statements were very fundamentalist, literal interpretations. I, evidentially, don't get to have a religious outlook; I tried the quiz in two different browsers and got a blank screen for a result. It must reflect the fact that I really don't ever consider religious, philosophical, or ethical matters at all- they just aren't interesting to me. I most assuredly don't have icons expressing my dislike of missionaries, either.
By the way, Nic and I are going back up to the bed and breakfast we stayed at for your wedding; it's our third anniversary at the end of the month, and we really liked the place. I can't remember if it was you or foobart
who originally recommended it, but thanks again. :)
Was that the Lost Whale, up in Trinidad? I think my dad recommended it; I've never actually been there.
If you're back up in that neck of the woods, and enjoy hiking, you should definitely go check out fern canyon. It's a bit tricky to get to, and hiking up it means getting ankle-to-shin deep in some really cold water, but I think it's one of the most beautiful places in the world.
So survived the zombies and I'm supposed to be a Buddhist. Interesting.
Bummer. Despite my extensive knowledge of zombies (encourged by my daydreaming of zombie takeovers, no doubt), I only scored a 68%. Giving things more thought, I retook the test and scored an 89%.
Umm... keep in mind, though, if the dead do rise again, a correct answer appears to be "strap explosives around your (bitten) friend and use him as bait". Best to stay healthy during the zombie apocalypse.
