Can You Tell Helvetica from Arial?

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 9:43 PM

Think you know your fonts? Try this quiz that takes famous logos using the Helvetica typeface to see if you can spot the (original) Helvetica version versus the Arial version.

HT: John Gruber. (Incidentally, I got 20/20, which means I get at least a brief moment to glory over the aesthetically astute John Gruber.)

Boo Hoo

Well, apparently, my inner child needs Paxil or something. How about yours?

Your Inner Child Is Sad

You're a very sensitive soul.
You haven't grown that thick skin that most adults have.
Easily hurt, you tend to retreat to your comfort zone.
You don't let many people in - unless you've trusted them for a long time.
How Is Your Inner Child?

Hat tip goes to Michael.

I found this quiz via Kevin:
Your Candy Heart Says "Hug Me"
A total sweetheart, you always have a lot of love to give out.
Your heart is open to where ever love takes you!

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a surprise romantic evening that you've planned out

Your flirting style: lots of listening and talking

What turns you off: fighting and conflict

Why you're hot: you're fearless about falling in love
What Does Your Candy Heart Say?

That works for me, for the most part, save for conflict. I love debate, everyone knows that.

I did another for good measure:
Your 2005 Song Is
Since You've Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson

"But since you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on"

In 2005, you moved on.
What Hit Song of 2005 Are You?
This one is interesting, because many of the artists to choose from in the quiz I've either never heard of or never heard. There were two groupings of artists that had one artist I actually recognized and liked, so I was able to pick somewhat less than randomly, though. I've never heard the song I apparently "am."

So what are y'alls results on these?

Another interesting quiz from Christopher. What are you? (20 asisaid points good in the next Challenge if you can explain the title without Googling for it.)

Your Social Dysfunction:

You're a happy person - you have a good amount of self-esteem, and are socially healthy. While this isn't a social dysfunction per se, you're definitely not normal. Consider yourself lucky: you walk that fine line between 'normal' and being outright narcissistic. You're rare - which is something else to be happy about.

Yes, I'm a Cell Phone Geek.

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 6:41 AM

I took CNET's Cell Phone Geek quiz. Here's what it said:

Cell phone geek
Face it—you're a cell phone geek. On one hand, it's great that you take the time to know about the technology as you can dispense valuable advice to friends and family. But cell phones aren't the be-all and end-all of human existence, and there's more to life than knowing the differences between Motorola and Nokia. Also, remember that not everyone shares your passion, so unless you're with your fellow geeks, keep your diatribes to yourself.

I have actually expounded on the differences of CDMA/GSM and Motorola/Nokia before, so I guess the shoe fits. :) How about all of you?

Egw Legw Ellenikan, ouk Latinikan!

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 9:34 PM
Like Kevin, I am "Latin." I think this quiz is a bit hard on Latin. I wonder what other antiquated skill I could have been? Why not post yours below? Calliope, Muse of epic poetry
You are 'Latin'. Even among obsolete skills, the
tongue of the ancient Romans is a real
anachronism. With its profusion of different
cases and conjugations, Latin is more than a
language; it is a whole different way of
thinking about things. You are very classy, meaning that you value the
classics. You value old things, good things
which have stood the test of time. You value
things which have been proven worthy and
valuable, even if no one else these days sees
them that way. Your life is touched by a
certain 'pietas', or piety; perhaps you are
even a Stoic. Nonetheless, you have a certain
fascination with the grotesque and the profane.
Also, the modern world rejects you like a bad
transplant. Your problem is that Latin has
been obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?

Seems Accurate Enough

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 10:24 PM
This seems to fit me fairly well, except, perhaps its emphasis on organization. :shock:

You Are Likely an Only Child
At your darkest moments, you feel frustrated.
At work and school, you do best when you're organizing.
When you love someone, you tend to worry about them.

In friendship, you are emotional and sympathetic.
Your ideal careers are: radio announcer, finance, teaching, ministry, and management.
You will leave your mark on the world with organizational leadership, maybe as the author of self-help books.

Just Call me a Barthist

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 5:10 PM

According to this unusually thoughtful, well-done theology survey, I am placed in the same school of thought as Karl Barth. Who would have thunk? Yeah, I thought so, and you probably did too. Notice it is virtually a dead heat between Neo-Orthodoxy (Lewis, Barth) and Reformed Evangelicalism (Calvin, Edwards), which of course fits with being Barthian. I'm not sure how Wesleyanism came in third when I gave good, solid Calvinist answers to a number of questions, but I don't really mind that. Notice that Fundamentalism scores much lower, as do the various forms of liberalism.

It is interesting to find myself being labeled neo-orthodox in a poll today, since I was just talking about my affinity with the neo-orthodox thinkers in my application for SCF, which I almost finished last night.

Not surprisingly, Catholicism is also low on my profile, which I point out as probably correct, since I answered in the negative on the authority of the pope, the authority of the ecumenical councils, the centrality of Mary and the key of communion to worship (but, let my Catholic friends rest assured, I'm fairly certain that it was only those four questions that determined my Catholicity and therefore one should not read so much into the fact that my liberal and Catholic scores came out the same). Had it been listed, I might have come out with a fairly good Eastern Orthodox score, given that my answers pointed to Christocentrism and I did not answer completely iconoclastically.

You scored as Neo orthodox. You are neo-orthodox. You reject the human-centredness and scepticism of liberal theology, but neither do you go to the other extreme and make the Bible the central issue for faith. You believe that Christ is God's most important revelation to humanity, and the Trinity is hugely important in your theology. The Bible is also important because it points us to the revelation of Christ. You are influenced by Karl Barth and P T Forsyth.
