A while back, I discovered a site that purportedly could analyze one’s writing style and identify an author with a similar style. In my case, it came up with Douglas Adams. This could have been because I started a number of sentences with “According to,” or it could have been because I mentioned Zaphod Beeblebrox.
Well, I’ve just discovered another one, and its analysis is not quite as flattering: “electronic-replicant.com is probably written by a female somewhere between 66-100 years old. The writing style is personal and happy most of the time. ”
Heavens to Betsy! Sakes alive, for crying out loud! I suppose I’d better replace my bio pic with something a bit more current.
On the other hand, I suppose it could have been worse. It could have pegged me as a thirteen year old girl. Lol, whatevs.
According to this quiz, How Millennial Are You, I have much more in common with the Millennial generation than with Gen X, which is my “calendar” generation, if you will. I’ve always somewhat felt this to be the case, but now I have hard numbers— the score of a fourteen question online quiz!
I scored a 62. The makers of the quiz guessed that the average Gen X-er would score 33 and the average Millennial would score a 73. I suspect that I’d have scored even higher if I’d have played a video game lately… and I suspect that I’d have scored much lower if I’d answered some of the questions more conservatively or more materialistically.
I also liked the fact that the makers of the quiz called them the “Millennials,” rather than using the shallow and unimaginative marketroidism of “Gen Y.”
Some diseases are so awful that they must be spoken of in whispers, lest the speaking of their names somehow summon them. Other diseases are so infamous that they’ve even earned an article: The Flu, The Common Cold. And a very few are both…
Before embarking on Evil™ as a career path, it’s important to have goals and/or objectives. Now, some would-be Evil™ Geniuses are just too busy and/or impatient to formulate and/or articulate these goals and/or objectives. Fortunately, there’s a solution, the Evil™ Plan Generator. Simply choose your preferred form of Evil™ from the menu, and the generator does the rest. Behold my Evil™ Plan:
Your objective is simple: Destroy the Earth.
Your motive is a bit more complex: To show them all
To begin your plan, you must first clone a superman. This will cause the world to give one another worried looks, overwhelmed by your arrival. Who is this evil genius? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in classic black?
Next, you must sabotoge the moon (ooh, tides!). This will all be done from a air fortress, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will spontaneously combust, as countless hordes of computer programmers hasten to do your every bidding.
Finally, you must activate your doomsday device, bringing about something that’s really metal. Your name shall become synonymous with insanity, and no man will ever again dare roll his or her eyes. Everyone will bow before your incredible power, and the world will have no choice but to make you their new god.
"Whoooo’s my little burnie-wurnie pooh-pooh? Yoooou are! Yes, yoooou are!"
You Are 81% Burned Out
You are extremely burned out. You work too hard,and you’re not getting the results you deserve. It’s time for alife change, as soon as you can manage it. You’re giving awaymost of your energy to something you don’t even enjoy.
Your stunning intellect and love of sci-fi and video games allures the geeks like nothing else. Maybe it is the sparkle in your eye that makes them want to text you, who knows. Geeks make good partners, but tend to be arguementative. If you are a TRUE geek magnet, you will know if that was spelled correctly, and actually care. If it is a bad-boy/bad-girl you are seeking, you are barking up the wrong tree, unless they are just ‘bad’ behind a PS2 console.
