Plenty of Political Profiling

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:50 PM

Found via Christopher:

Your Political Profile

Overall: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal
Social Issues: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal
Personal Responsibility: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal
Fiscal Issues: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal
Ethics: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal
Defense and Crime: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal
How Liberal / Conservative Are You?

I'm not fond of the term ethics for the second to last break down; it seems that what it terms “ethics” are not necessarily what I would term ethics, and some things I would term ethical fall in other categories. I mean, aren't ethics related to social issues, personal responsibility and so on? None the less, I think the “overall” score is about where I usually land on such linear quizzes (I like the more complex 2D profiles better, since liberal and conservative are such broad terms by themselves and become a lot more useful when you add a libertarian/authoritarian vertical axis to the standard right/left metric). Moreover, it does show that I'm on the fence in some categories, which would certainly be true. Feel free to post your results below.

Generally, I Don't Say "Coke," do Y'all?

That's right; contrary to what the title of this post might imply, I speak general American English with a tinge of Yankeeisms and with relatively little Dixie or Upper Midwestern influence. Oddly, having grown up in the Midwest, I speak 0% Midwestern, according to this test. I'm not sure how scientific it is, although I do know I purposely do avoid some regional slang, so maybe that's the reason it comes out this way.

Your Linguistic Profile:

75% General American English
15% Yankee
5% Dixie
5% Upper Midwestern
0% Midwestern
What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

How about y'all (and, in case you are wondering, I cannot remember the last time I said “y'all”)?

Hat tip goes to Christopher.

Here Shall He See Gross Fools as He

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 12:44 AM

I took the “What Mood Are You In?” quiz after seeing it over on Michael's blog. It told me that I am in a “decent mood.”

You aren't turning cartwheels, but you're having a pretty good day. Some ups, some downs, but overall you're coming out ahead.
And who knows? Tomorrow could be even better!

I guess that is appropriate enough. Personally, I was feeling rather like the following instead:

More, I pr'ythee, more. I can suck melancholy out of a song, as a weasel sucks eggs. More, I pr'ythee, more.

I'm too short on time right now to work up some challenge questions, although I should. 5 pts. if you can identify that quote. Of course, feel free to post what mood the quiz says of you, below, as well.

Not an Ageless Quiz

You Are 30 Years Old
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come… love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
