Feel free to discuss in the comments, by the way. We'll call 'em read-at-your-own-risk for people who live in caves.

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...
24% Logical, 12% Spatial, 65% Linguistic, 24% Intrapersonal, 25% Interpersonal, 14% Musical, 10% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 51% Naturalistic!
"Verbal-linguistic intelligence has to do with words, spoken or written. People with verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facility with words and languages. They are typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words and dates. They tend to learn best by reading, taking notes, listening to lectures, and via discussion and debate. They are also frequently skilled at explaining, teaching and oration or persuasive speaking. Those with verbal-linguistic intelligence learn foreign languages very easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and an ability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.
Careers which suit those with this intelligence include writers, lawyers, philosophers, journalists, politicians and teachers." (Wikipedia)

Anyway, I have voted. This means that everybody can stop campaigning at me now. At this point, I'm not legally allowed to change my mind.

Star Trek mistakes: Just in case that wasn't enough Trek for ya, here's extensive video proof that when it comes to maintaining careful internal consistency the Star Trek universe, um, doesn't.
The N+7 Machine: Enter some text to see what it looks like when you replace all the nouns with other nouns seven dictionary entries away. Because, admit, it, you're just that bored.
The Eyeball Game: See how accurately you can form parallelograms and bisect angles and stuff just by eyeballing. I scored 7.18. But then, I can't hang picture frames straight.
PalinAsPresident: Funniest political satire I've seen outside of Comedy Central.
Baby tigers monkey around: An article about a cimpanzee that is helping to raise orphaned baby white tigers. I include it here because it contains the cutest pictures ever, and also because I feel a great sense of solidarity with my fellow feline-raising primates.

Go to Google and type in your first name and the given phrase. Copy and paste the first sentence/phrase you get that makes sense (and isn't someone else's response to this meme).
Q: Type in "[your name] needs" in the Google search.
A: Betty needs a real sanctuary. (I dunno, under the covers with a book and a mug of tea works pretty well for me, really.)
Q: Type in "[your name] looks like" in Google search.
A: Seriously, though, Betty looks like one of the Olsen twins. The ugly one. (Hey! And aren't they both equally ugly?)
Q: Type in "[your name] says" in Google search.
A. BettySays.com Directory of Deals and Opportunities for the 50+ crowd! (You hear me, old people? Better do what I say if you want deals and opportunities and stuff!)
Q: Type in "[your name] wants" in Google search.
A: Betty wants a dick. (*ahem* No comment.)
Q: Type in "[your name] does" in Google search.
A: MySpace music profile for Betty Does with tour dates, songs, videos, pictures, blogs, band information, downloads and more. (The stuff I do is so awesome, it has a band named after it!)
Q: Type in "[your name] hates" in Google search.
A: BETTY HATES MYSPACE. (It's true, there are reasons I've avoided signing up for that thing.)
Q: Type in "[your name] asks" in Google search.
A: Betty Makes A Video Tape To Give To Madonna To Ask Her For A New Signed Copy Of Her New Album Hard Candy To Give To Justin ! (I hope Justin appreciates it.)
Q: Type in "[your name] goes" in Google search.
A: Betty goes a go-go. (Go!)
Q: Type in "[your name] likes" in Google search.
A: Betty likes to play "guy" games, too. (Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more.)
Q: Type in "[your name] eats" in Google search.
A: Betty Eats a Pasty Lunch. (I know it's an actual foodstuff in some parts of the world, but, man, "pasty lunch" just sounds really unappetizing.)
Q: Type in "[your name] wears" in Google search.
A: Betty wears a hot summer makeup trend. (That is a scurrilous lie!)
Q: Type in "[your name] was arrested for" in Google Search.
A: Betty was arrested for possession of a controlled substance. (I have no idea how that got there, I swear!)

(Bah. I get really cranky when I'm sleep-deprived. Also, I'm going to be really happy when this whole damned thing is over. I swear, if they'd just saved the trees from all the frigging campaign propaganda I've gotten in my mailbox in the last month, global warming would be less of a threat.)

Your result for How Will You Survive a Horror Film Test...
In a horror movie you would be the one that sits back reading the books or checking the computer for sources to get information on the situation at hand. You don't believe that you need to necessarily stick your neck out to survive, and your main goal is just that...to survive, hopefully with someone to share the victory with. As for watching horror films? Well, you might want to go alone and sit away from the crowd. You are the one that sits there making judgements through the film pointing out how stupid the characters are. You may end up wearing more popcorn than you eat.
Yeah, that sounds like me.
Current mood: Not bad. Kind of relaxed.
Current music: The Best of Bowie.
Current annoyance: One of the cats just did something very smelly in the cat box in the next room. Pheww!
Current thing: Being obsessed with random TV shows, maybe, but there's nothing new about that.
Current desktop picture: This photo of a meteor shower seen from a mountaintop in Romania.
Current book: Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us) by Tom Vanderbilt. I'm only about 50 pages in, but I'm already finding it entertainingly written and very interesting.
Current song in head: "Moonage Daydream." (See "current music.")
Current DVD in player: Disc 3 of season 3 of Supernatural. This isn't a show that's going to win any awards for sophisticated and nuanced writing (although, bless its little heart, it tries), but the more I watch, the more thoroughly I'm enjoying it. (Well, except for that one I just saw, which started out by re-enacting my freakiest recurring nightmare and then showed me maggot-covered food while I was eating spaghetti. So not cool, show.)
Current refreshment: Hot tea.
Current worry: I really hope I'm going to manage to stay awake long enough today to switch myself over from night shift onto day shift. Too often when I try to make the transition by just staying up like this, I'm pretty much down for the count by noon. But I've had to cover a bunch of extra hours this week, which means doing it gradually was out.
Current thought: I am not sleepy. I cannot possibly be sleepy yet!

Not that I'm necessarily going to pick up if you call, what with my insane work schedule and all, but people have been known to have entirely pleasant and satisfying conversations with my answering machine.

| You are a |
You are best described as a:
Link: The Politics Test on Ok Cupid
Also : The OkCupid Dating Persona Test
(Except, hmm, it's not showing the results with the faces on it, so now the title of this post makes no sense. Oh, well. It's hardly the first time I've failed to make sense here.)

Do I come to your house and ring your doorbell at 4 AM? Do I?
Groggily and grumpily,
Dear Religious Day People,
Do I come to your house and ring your doorbell at 4 AM and hand you atheistic propaganda? Do I? I do not. But sometimes I am tempted to start.
Groggy, grumpy, and unconverted,
