Your result for The Which Biblical Villain Are You Test...


You scored 50% Pride, 73% Envy, 28% Ambition, and 45% Deceitfulness!

You are Jonah, the rebellious prophet of God. God gave you a very simple order, "preach to the citizens of Ninevah, lest they perish". You were extremely resistant to this order and God had to lead you, kicking and screaming, all the way to the city. Based on your personality, there are two possible explanations for this. Reason number 1: You just didn't feel like going out of your way to save the people of Ninevah. In other words, because you are not a very driven person, you simply lacked the motivation to leave your homeland and save those people. Reason number 2: You had contempt for the people in Ninevah. In other words, you didn't care if the people in Ninevah perished, because you didn't care about the people. In fact, you might have secretly enjoyed watching God rain fire and brimstone from heaven on them. Because you are outspoken and direct, you had no problem telling God that you disagreed with his plan. However, ultimately, your humility won out and you obeyed God's command, but for a while there, you made a pretty good villain.

Your result for The How Difficult Is Your Life Test...

Very Difficult

Your life has been 48% difficult.

Based on your family, money, political context, and personal situation -- during the important years of your development -- it appears your life was VERY DIFFICULT. What does this mean?

Well, the "difficulty" of your life is a measure of how rough you had it. Relative to the world, you had a very, very difficult childhood. I'm not sure what "success" means to you, but whatever it is, you can achieve it. When you do, it'll be that much more impressive.

On the Verge

You scored 45% Dirtiness!

According to your score, you are on the threshold of possessing a truly dirty mind. You might enjoy a dirty joke or two once in a while, but you haven't allowed your thoughts to become that smutty. You may enjoy thinking dirty once in a while, but chances are it's not your top priority on your list of things to think about. You take it easy and probably don't offend people, and probably aren't easily offended, either. You possess a good balance of pure and impure thoughts.

Your result for The Are You a Patriotic American? Test...

Somewhat Patriotic

You scored 59% US Philosophy, 9% American Pride, 33% Involvement, and 100% Citizen Status!

This test measured you according to four criteria: Philosophy, Pride, Involvement and Citizen Status.

Philosophy reflects whether you agree with the philosophical foundations of the United States, such as: liberty, equality, democracy (though limited, not absolute), capitalism, checks and balances, constitutionalism, etc.

Pride reflects your assessment of the factual reality and history of the United States as a nation. It is your opinion as to whether the United States has been a "good" country and whether it has acted rightly or not.

Involvement reflects your level of political activism--whether you act to stay informed of what is going on in the world, and what you do on the basis of that information.

Citizen Status simply reflects whether you claimed to be a citizen of the U.S. when asked by this test.

It is the opinion of this test that, of these four factors, the only one that matters when it comes to being considered a Patriotic American is one's score in the first category--Philosophy. Therefore, if you scored between 0-33% in that category, you have been rated 'Unpatriotic'; 34-66%, 'Somewhat Patriotic'; 67-100% 'Patriotic'.

Certainly, the other categories provide interesting information for your (and others') consideration. However, they are not crucial for Patriotism, and they do not necessarily reflect a love, or its lack, for one's country. Regarding American Pride, some people will be surprised that it does not affect the outcome of the test; some people will be upset by this. However, if a person supports every military action the United States has ever engaged in, but does not really support his neighbors' right to live their lives in the ways that they see fit, then they do not truly love the United States. Further, and despite much of the rhetoric some political pundits engage in, a truly Patriotic American can be highly critical of many of the actions undertaken by the U.S. throughout history. Certainly, much of what the United States has done has been done poorly or for the wrong reasons. And while the author of this test believes that the United States has been mainly a force for good in the world (and the most-free, best nation ever to exist), he respects the opinions of those who would disagree with him and fully supports their right to dissent. For that is what America is all about.

Regarding Involvement, it has been said that eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. This is true, however it is also true that liberty means that people can be as involved, or not involved, as they want. Choosing not to vote, while perhaps unwise, is as much an exercise of political liberty as anything else. Certainly, however, a low score in involvement might mean that a person could stand to try to be more aware of current events, or more actively involved in shaping them, because sometimes they matter.

Regarding Citizen Status, I am certain that many people will believe that to truly be a Patriotic American, one must be a citizen of the United States. However, that is not so. One of the traits that sets the U.S. apart from many other nations in history, is that it is a country not organized specifically around a particular ethnicity, language, religion, culture or common historical origin, but a shared political ideology. The United States is organized around a common love of liberty, individual rights and free expression. This, in part, accounts for the unending stream of immigration starting from the very conception of the nation and continuing on to the present day. In today's United States, there are many thousands who are not citizens, and yet who live in the United States and share its dreams (and many of them will be citizens when they are able). The author would even argue that there are many Patriotic Americans who have never yet even set foot on U.S. soil. There are no requirements of language, skin color, religion, sexual orientation or particular condition of any other personal detail to be a "true American." Just a love of liberty.

I hope that the test was either entertaining, educational or some combination of the two. I appreciate your taking it. If you have any serious question/comment, the author is always glad to discuss this subject or any other (though please keep in mind my initial warnings--you knew what this test was about when you decided to take it).

Modern, Cool Nerd

52 % Nerd, 57% Geek, 39% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge).

Your result for The Personality Defect Test...

Spiteful Loner

You are 100% Rational, 14% Extroverted, 57% Brutal, and 29% Arrogant.

You are the Spiteful Loner, the personality type that is most likely to go on a shooting rampage. In high school, you were probably that kid who wore all black and who sat alone in a corner of the lunch room, drawing pictures of dead babies. You are a rational person and tend to hold emotions in very low-esteem; not only that, but you are also rather introverted, meaning you probably bury any emotions you feel deep inside yourself, like all of the bodies in your backyard. Combine these traits with your dislike of others and your brutality, and it seems that you would be quite likely to shoot innocent people in a rampage. Most likely, you also have low self-esteem. Hell, I get low self-esteem just looking at you. This is only yet one more incentive to go on a shooting rampage, because you wouldn't care if you died as a result. Granted, you probably haven't gone on a shooting rampage and probably never will, but all the motivations are there. All you need is for someone to push you over the edge, calling you names and belittling you. Like me. But don't shoot me. I have a 101 mile-long knife, you know. In conclusion, your personality is defective because you are too introverted, brutal, insecure, and rather unemotional. No wonder no one hangs around you, you morbid, cold-hearted freak!

To put it less negatively:

1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3. You are more BRUTAL than gentle.

4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.


Your exact opposite is the Televangelist.

Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Capitalist Pig, the Smartass, and the Sociopath.



If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you could very well go either way. For example, someone with 42% Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well. Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored near fifty percent for certain traits.

The other personality types:

The Emo Kid: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Starving Artist: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Bitch-Slap: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Brute: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hippie: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Televangelist: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Schoolyard Bully: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Class Clown: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Robot: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Haughty Intellectual: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Spiteful Loner: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Sociopath: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hand-Raiser: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Braggart: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Capitalist Pig: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Smartass: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

like usual, i don't really have a recipe, but i'll try. i planned on making this next week but my parents needed something for sunday dinner, so i'm making it sunday. i've only made this once before, so i hope it tastes as good this time.

chicken stock
miso paste

okay, first start with lots of water with a few scoops of miso paste and chicken stock. bring to boil, add beef and enough rice to soak up all the liquid, turn down heat, add chopped up scallions, carrots, and potatoes. let simmer for like many many hours, stirring occasionally, keep the rice from burning on the bottom. if there's too much liquid, add more rice.

tastes very good baked into a biscuit. kinda line a bowl with dough, fill it up with stew, cover and seal it with more dough, bake at 350 for however long it takes (i didn't exactly time it). cut through the top and eat it like it was in a normal bowl

August 2009-October 12, 2009

On October 12, 2009, after receiving severe head trauma, Little Blackie Sparkles (Blackie for short) had to be euthanized. I didn't know Blackie very well, only knew him for a total of 7 days over the past 5 weeks. All I can think is about how it really wasn't that bad that he kept me awake most of last night purring on my pillow, or attacking a piece of paper on my floor. He loved my screen saver but kept stepping on the space bar to get closer, making it go away. My nephew is horrified at accidently stepping on him, and my sister almost equally guilt ridden for making me sign the euthanasia authorization. But as I stood there, saying my last goodbyes, looking at Blackie's swollen eyes and blood soaked fur, I knew it was for the best.

last night, i solved a decades long mystery. the mystery of rowdy. i have a dog named rowdy, he's almost 10 (if he's not alredy). he's a mutt. his mother was a chow/jack russell terrier mix but we haven't been figure out about his father.

over the years i've looked around, trying to find a third dog that looks just like rowdy. rowdy's coloring is pure father, so that's where we've been looking. last night i found a website with over 100 dog breeds and an example picture of each one... i found it! i found a dog that looks almost exactly like rowdy: lancashire heeler. it was like i was looking at rowdy. i google it and it was like looking at a bunch of rowdies. the only major differences was rowdy's predominant chow features: mane, curly tail, black tongue.

i just took a few pictures, i'll take a few more and post them :)
