You wave someone along even though they have the right of way.

It would more frequently be an antisocial act to wave them along when they don't have the right of way.  Also, this quiz doesn't differentiate between 'do you ever' and 'do you regularly'.  I guess they want you to game the quiz a bit.

Anyway, regardless of whether I answered strictly or 'in the spirit of the law', I got the Matthew Perry 'temperature is Cool' result:

You know there are worse offenders than you, and as you half-tuck your shirt before the party you organized via Evite, you dread having to fist-bump every last one of them when they say that you, too, have a wine Rabbit.

I don't fist-bump guys (or fist-bump anyone except ironically or when punching), I don't capitalize "Evite", I don't have a wine Rabbit, and I don't even know what 'half-tucking' a shirt is, although it sounds awful.  I also got this result when I only had one item checked as 'Yes', which seems kind of harsh.

I also don't adequately understand these questions:

You have destination-related car stickers like MV, NTK, PVT, HMP, or NPT.

I don't know what any of those acronyms mean.


You pretend not to know who Spencer Pratt is.

I actually don't know who Spencer Pratt is.


You refer to a date/girlfriend?s having done some "print work."




You talk about a record "dropping."

If we were talking about LP vinyl on an auto-loading turntable in 1982, maybe.  Is this a poop reference?


Also, I have no idea if Hayden Panettiere is hot.  She used to be too young but probably going to be hot, but I don't know anything she's done since she was in that horrible zebra movie.  Wait . . . I think Frak had something about her dating some other female semi-celeb, or something, but I don't remember seeing pictures.  If I were charitable, I guess I would think she's hot.  Good for her if she is.  Should she not be?  Or is this a She's Too Young And You Are Creepy thing?

I didn't know the references in those questions, either. Obvi this quiz is slanted towards wankers living in NYC.

I looked up Spencer Pratt.  It says he was on The Princes of Malibu and The Hills.  I've never heard of the first and I'm only vaguely aware of the second.  Apparently he's famous for being famous.

Right, Spencer as in "Heidi and Spencer."

Yeah, I think this is geared more to what they call "$30k millionaires" in Dallas, the bottle service guido types.

Anyway, I knew enough of the answers to achieve "Scorching!" It has a picture of Vin Diesel next to it.

Yeah, occasionally. Like Axe said - this is a bad thing?

I say “My bad.”
I know I shouldn't. I'm sorry - my bad. D'oh! It's a dumb saying, but it's an admission of a mistake in two syllables, and I appreciate that.

I go to a show to see the opening band.
Yeah, sometimes. Again, this is a bad thing?

I assume "print work" means they've done modeling work for a magazine.
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

The oval stickers kind of have me stymied.  MV = Mission Viejo?  NPT = Newport?  I don't even have a guess on the others.

OH.  Now I know what stickers they mean, at least.  Just a few weeks ago, I was complaining about suddenly seeing quite a number of oval car stickers with an undecipherable acronym on them.  I don't remember what the acronym was, and I guess I was too lazy to google it.

Well . . . whatever.  I fail to care, now.

I often wave someone along even though they have the right of way -- because they often don't seem to know they HAVE the r-o-w, and I frankly, don't want to get in an accident with someone like that, because they probably also don't have car insurance.

I think a lot of "that guy"s are on Tumblr.

Oh I had one that reminded me of this: it was a blurb thing about NYE in the D, and the local grand opening of the Krupa Sisters' new club. Never having heard of them before, I would have guessed that "The Krupa Sisters" was an ironically-named Pitchfork band full of skinny guys with neckbeards, but it's actually a couple of model/reality-show-star sisters who are trying to be the next Hiltons. On purpose!

eta (I dunno if any of their genes are Gene's. also I dig how the name is all sparkly, like beautiful vampires in daytime):

Some sources say they're Polish-Australian so ... probably no Gene genes. Unfortunate. I miss Gene.

She sorta looks like one of the exes. Hopefully she's a more exemplary human than that particular ex tho, haha  :uncertain:

Can't tell if she's got drummer's hands or not...
