I was 80% Democratic
 
2010-12-21 09:02:53 PM  
Stupid test didn't make any Goddamned sense.

I'm a solid Democrat. It told me I was 60% Republican. Most of the questions made no sense at all. In order for this test to be effective, they should be asking synonyms. Instead, we get this:

"Government Mandated" vs. "Income contingent" for example. When things are government mandated, I say they're government mandated. When Taxes are income contingent, I say they're income contingent. Or "Marriage" vs. "Homelessness". What the fark? These things have nothing to do with each other.

\Same with bureaucrat and lobbyist, they're different jobs.
\\I'm against same sex homelessness

Phil Herup: Marriage or Homelessness? WTF?

Eeeeeyeaah I need an "other" button. I'm a chick and neither's hot enough to make me consider being heteroflexible.

There should have been a null vote choice on there. I'm unlikely to use just about any of the words/phrases in that quiz.

Gay sex in the privacy of your own home or gay sex in an airport bathroom?

Who knew!

Ringshadow: Eeeeeyeaah I need an "other" button. I'm a chick and neither's hot enough to make me consider being heteroflexible.

actually i'm not really attracted to either of them but given the chance i would bang both concurrently. i can only imagine how angry that threesome would be.

oh and i'm not one of those white guys who has the obsession with asian chicks but i find the non white conservative a turn on.

Prawns or mudbugs?
 
2010-12-21 09:12:20 PM  
Pornographic or Tuesday?

Immigration or Potato?

Sunken Treasure or Chicken Wings?

Take the test, our experts are standing by.
 
2010-12-21 09:12:42 PM  
It's probably a decent test, but since I flatter myself as something of an occasional wordsmith, many of the choices come down to context. I use both of the words offered in a lot of the cases, mostly when I want to say something the word best describes.

It's quite sad that they were able to create this test based on usage. Evidently, talking like your colleagues continues as the black.

I know really. I'm a lezbo and would be frantically looking for the "none of the above' choice. Jikes.

Prawns... baked in butter with slivers of Mango.
 
2010-12-21 09:15:16 PM  
I came out something like 90% Democrat, but I honestly don't know where they came up with that nonsense. 'Homelessness' versus 'Marriage'? WTF does that even mean? And the 'unborn' vs 'infant' one was bizarre too, as those two words mean completely different things in that an unborn child, uh, hasn't been farking born yet, so of course I'd use a different word for a child in the unborn state versus an infant (who has been born).

God, what a waste of time and bandwidth.
 
2010-12-21 09:15:28 PM  
You know... with a bit of tweaking this could actually be worth half a damn. Pick which term is "more appealing" to you



For example,

"Gay Marriage" or "Domestic Partnership"

"Government Mandated" or "Privatization"

"Welfare" or "Government Assistance"

"Faith" or "Religion"

"Constitutional Originalist" or "Modern Pragmatist"

Etc etc....

Instead we get seemingly random parallels that offer nothing other than keywords spoken by the various parties, with no real framework behind them. This is one of the most poorly designed polls I have seen... and I took many a sociology classes where we had to fill out each others surveys'.

60% Republican! SUCK IT LIEBRULS!
 
2010-12-21 09:17:14 PM  
Wide stance or glory hole
 
2010-12-21 09:17:36 PM  
1. Bureaucrat (R) Lobbyist (D)
2. Homosexual (R) Gay (D)
3. Marriage (R) Homelessness (D)
4. Taxation (R) Wealthiest (D)
5. Crumbling (D) Fracturing (R)
6. Government Mandated (R) Income Contingent (D)
7. Hard Earned (R) Low Paying (D)
8. Nationalize (R) Policing (D)
9. Unborn (R) Infant (D)
10. Defense (R) Veterans (D)

What an absurd survey, which am I more likely to use, "crumbling" or "fracturing"? I guess this depends on if something is falling apart or has a few large cracks.

smeegle: I know really. I'm a lezbo and would be frantically looking for the "none of the above' choice. Jikes.

well since you are gay/homosexual/homeless? you can have another choice.

SCOTT BROWN OR MARCO RUBIO.
 
2010-12-21 09:18:43 PM  
LOL! 70% Democrat.

For what it's worth, I'm unlikely to use *any* of those words. I had to flip a mental coin using an imaginary context. I should play again to see if there are more than those ten available.

I mean seriously? "Unborn" or "Infant"? Try "Maggot" or "Honey, come stand by these stairs..."
 
2010-12-21 09:19:05 PM  
Questions were way too transparent as to how the answers would rank you.
I have a feeling that many Farkers are far too politically aware to take this silly thing without getting exactly the result they want.

/Bipartisan. Because that's what I wanted.

Please tell me they aren't going to try to wring data out of that sack of shiat. It's no survey, even in this day and age of shiatty online surveys.

Is this test also available in awesome, because that was certainly not.

Or maybe a porn version?

Good one. Uh
Geriatric bank robbers or Acorn scammers?
 
2010-12-21 09:25:30 PM  
I don't know what "Income Contingent" means, does that make me a teabagger? Useless poll, on most you can easily tell which one is for each party. I'm not likely to use any of those words in general conversation anyway.
 
2010-12-21 09:25:44 PM  
Jim Carrey or Jerry Lewis?
 
2010-12-21 09:26:58 PM  
Did anyone pick fracturing over crumbling?
 
2010-12-21 09:27:04 PM  
What's next? A linguistic test to test if you're a Real American vs. a Kenyan Muslim?
