Day-After-Christmas Blues?

12 Days of Quizzes. You're having to work the day after Christmas. You hate it. You hate your boss for making you work. None of your friends are having to work. So do what I did - kill some time and sap the last bit of profitability out of 2006 by taking these 12 quizzes. It'll be lunchtime before you know it. Five short hours later, you can go back home and procrastinate on taking down all those decorations.

Ten minutes closer to lunch - thanks! I scored 80 on most of these. I didn't know I was that good at guessing things.

Derail, but decorations are (traditionally) meant to stay up until Christmas is over on January 6. So you'll have to wait a bit before you can procrastinate on taking them down. Otherwise, you're just being observant (in the religious sense).

From the drum quiz (possible SPOILER):

2. A basic drum set contains three:

Well, to be fair, a hi-hat is already 2 cymbals in itself. Shouldn't influence your answer if you went with cymbals anyway, but still.

I love mental_floss. It's is basically a print edition of Metafilter. There is enough crossover to lead me to believe that a lot of their writers are members here, and a lot of people here are subscribers. Remember the world's most terrifying parasite article? That was so in reaction to the mefi post about that vile fish-tongue eating bug.

The way they score the quizzes in the magazine is great too, it's something like:

0-5 = Pretty good
6-10 = The best
11-15 = Also pretty good
16-20 = The worst

Also, I am bored at my parent's house. That is all.
