It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

First, from Cleveland Chaos, I totally want these two t-shrits:








I have no idea why these quizzes are so fun to me. (Probably because I'm a dork.) But, via Matthew:

It 's comforting to say that 'practice makes perfect'....
You are 'Gregg shorthand'. Originally designed to
enable people to write faster, it is also very
useful for writing things which one does not
want other people to read, inasmuch as almost
no one knows shorthand any more.

You know how important it is to do things
efficiently and on time. You also value your
privacy, and (unlike some people) you do not
pretend to be friends with just everyone; that
would be ridiculous. When you do make friends,
you take them seriously, and faithfully keep
what they confide in you to yourself.
Unfortunately, the work which you do (which is
very important, of course) sometimes keeps you
away from social activities, and you are often
lonely. Your problem is that Gregg shorthand
has been obsolete for a long time.


What obsolete skill are you?

And via Melyssa:



Your Linguistic Profile:



80% General American English

10% Upper Midwestern

5% Dixie

5% Midwestern

0% Yankee




Really?? Only 5% midwestern? I doubt that.

    I just test 60 percent General, 30 percent Yank. and 5 Dixie, and 5 Upp Mid.

    The last time I took the test , Iwas 55 Gen, 35 Yankee- something changed -maybe I am in flux/

    Okay, so I did the Gorey quiz and we came out the same. Then I did the obsolete skill quiz and we came out the same. Take 5% of your general American on the linguistic quiz and put it into Yankee and it's my score. Separated at birth?
