Who Needs Rotten.com??/Emode IQ Results
Who indeed needs Rotten.com when you do research for Ripley's Believe it or Not... or just simply are interested in the natural world?? Yesterday we brought you Human Bot Fly Larva and today, we are looking at snakes.
Ah, but that is for those with sensitive stomachs. If you decide to go into herpology, here is a warning for you from Eric Pianka, with a nasty image of the possible consequences: Yes that is a person being swallowed by a snake. And here is another one. Indeed it does give one pause to all the cheery petlover's photos of pythons around the neck. Hmmm.
Well, back to work. I shall add a few more interesting pics as I work more tonight! Thank god for google!
3:14 am... it feels of course like midnight or so...ie early evening for me!!
Well instead of browsing more icky sites I got sucked into a popup from emode.com... that fun and crazy quiz center (I am a Bernese Mountain Dog, according to them)... and I did their IQ test. Here are the results:
Your IQ score is 142
During the test, you answered four different types of questions — mathematical, visual-spatial, linguistic and logical. We analyzed how you did on each of those questions which reveals how your brain uniquely works.
This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others — and at anticipating and predicting patterns. And that's just some of what we know about you from your IQ results.
Some of Your Greatest Talents
You've got tons of strengths. It wouldn't surprise us if you:
Well, there ya go. According to the answer key I got ONE question wrong. It was:
27. Which one of these five things is least like the other four?
Now we can see that this is a very arguable question... is it the coconut since it is not a fleshy fruit in the manner of the others? Or perhaps the banana because it is infertile? Or the grape because it grows on a vine? or the Pear because the others grow in clusters? Even maybe the Coconut because it never comes in a yellowish color, whereas the others can? hmmm??? It is a trick question and I have submitted it to Wayne Armstrong, botany prof extraordinaire who runs a super duper plant site called Wayne's Word. Lots of pictures and weird info like "watermelon snow" presented with a twisted wacky sense of humour! You can even take Economic Botany classes online! Very funkycool!
Anyhowz, i am of course just bitching cuz the ONLY question I got wrong was a debatable one, not one where I screwed up the math!! This is just like me... girl gets 98% on the exam and has to quibble about the last question with the prof!
Anyhews, We can see that when people say "hey, we didnt need an encyclopedia", or "i just dont see the connection between those things", it is just that I AM sort of an encyclopedia, and I DO see a connection other people miss. Well howdy do. Nice to have emode validate my being! I should visit them more often!! It's not often that I score in the 90th percentile on everything. Thank god it does not score compassion towards idiot salespeople, or diplomatic skills under pressure, or patience with illogically automated systems. or or or...
And here is my new career choice list: * Archaeologist
Anyone who reads this and does the quiz/es: I would like if you would email me if you would like to share your results! :)
"People need somebody to watch over them. . . . Ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave.
Here is a complete rundown on our friend Arnie. You gotta admit he'd be a great bdsm Dom!! Too bad i'm not into those macho boyz! glllll.
4:28 amAAAGH! I can't stop while I'm ahead, can I?? No, I was so thrilled with the IQ results I decided to go for their "why are you still single" quiz. Well, their quizzes are eerily righton. Results:
Why Are You Still Single?
How the hell could I argue with that?? Well, it's only been a couple months since the definitive fuckup. On the other hand we could say, why when you havent slept with the girl for nearly 4 months now, do you not even notice other people? What a loser I am. "Once bitten, twice shy"... hahahahahaha (insert hysterical laugh track here) How about "six dozen times bitten, six dozen times shy". And I still don't turn down dates, and optimistically run after anyone who looks promising. How do you think I get into these things in the first place? Unbounded optimism despite the fear. Go for it, and once more get bitten. Pet too many strange dogs and you will lose your fingers, even if they are fuzzy and cute.
