Finally, an Internet "really short quiz with astonishing results" that is 100% accurate.

Good thing I checked the JavaScript first. Otherwise, my answers plugged into those phrases could have really come back to hurt me.

Lame.

i thought it was funny, but lets get to the point... how did it know my first pet was dead?

Now I'm sad. My dreams will never come true, Julia Ormond isn't hot for me, and my ass is sore.

Well, that frees up my weekend. Anyone up for bowling?

I guess I shouldn't expect better.

cute - but best of the web?

Nope, absolutely not. Cheap yuks. I was just tired of the all the political stuff, which makes me feel more depressed, helpless and disenfranchized than this quiz would if the quiz results were 100% true.

This is not why I come to MetaFilter.

I come to MetaFilter to waste my time in productive ways, not in useless ways.

This is a much more devious and destructive endeavor:

looks like the webmaster of crush007.com needs to learn a thing or two about http and mime-types... isn't that just a spam-related scam anyway?

bashos_frog - it doesn't even qualify as cute.

Yawn, just like the idiots with Free Porn links to that irritating PORN FREAK page that flashes and makes noise.

Or so I've heard.

Pfft. This is so fake. My cat is *not* dead. At least, I'm pretty sure my parents would have told me if she was dead. Right?

It's like Fark, only more redneck.

That was cute & definitely amusing. Thanks for posting it, Shane.

Wait a sec ... MeFi is supposed to be the best of the web? Did I miss those posts or something? ;-)

Oh yeah, that stupid ass wish of yours? *** I wish this weren't so obviously a fake quiz that's going to make fun of me
*** HAHAHAHA!! *** It will NEVER happen.


I made it contradict itself on my first try. Good guesser, I suppose.

Ha ha, I made Al & Bob up, so I don't care what they think cuz they're IMAGINARY!

And Rover is *NOT* DEAD!

*Sob*

Geez, that thing's depressing.

My first pet is not dead - he went to live on a farm with lots of other dogs where he could be free and happy forever. Also, I already know that none of my wishes will come true, so there!

I wished that this thread would be trashed unmercifully. Did it come true?

The best part of this site was that light yellow font against white.
posted by NorthernLite at 3:47 PM on March 16, 2004


Against blue for me.

Well, I laughed, anyway.

Just think, the time it took us to hate this site was much shorter than the work that went into it. Sad, really.

Are people still using the word 'gay' as an insult?
posted by mert at 5:58 PM on March 16, 2004


Almost as silly and pointless as my "Who is your mefi buddy" quiz.
posted by skallas at 6:09 PM on March 16, 2004


Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong - by four out of six.

And my first pet is still goddamn alive.

Correct on World Peace though.

asinine.

I don't know what you people are complaining about. I took the quiz twice and it was right both times. That's pretty impressive.
posted by Shane at 8:05 PM on March 16, 2004


people are complaining because it made them feel stupid. no sense of humour and all that.

*Helps Shane out from under the pile of wet blankets*

I thought it was funny, and just the antidote to those chipper office email forwarders that make the rest of us so irritable.

Uh-oh, sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays...

The quiz is broken, I just got a bunch of error messages.
