Link: The Personality Defect Test written by saint_gasoline on Ok Cupid, home of the 32-Type Dating Test
Spiteful Loner
You are 57% Rational, 14% Extroverted, 57% Brutal, and 42% Arrogant.
You are the Spiteful Loner, the personality type that is most likely to go on a shooting rampage. In high school, you were probably that kid who wore all black and who sat alone in a corner of the lunch room, drawing pictures of dead babies. You are a rational person and tend to hold emotions in very low-esteem; not only that, but you are also rather introverted, meaning you probably bury any emotions you feel deep inside yourself, like all of the bodies in your backyard. Combine these traits with your dislike of others and your brutality, and it seems that you would be quite likely to shoot innocent people in a rampage. Most likely, you also have low self-esteem. Hell, I get low self-esteem just looking at you. This is only yet one more incentive to go on a shooting rampage, because you wouldn't care if you died as a result. Granted, you probably haven't gone on a shooting rampage and probably never will, but all the motivations are there. All you need is for someone to push you over the edge, calling you names and belittling you. Like me. But don't shoot me. I have a 101 mile-long knife, you know. In conclusion, your personality is defective because you are too introverted, brutal, insecure, and rather unemotional. No wonder no one hangs around you, you morbid, cold-hearted freak!


To put it less negatively:

1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3. You are more BRUTAL than gentle.

4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.
Be sure to take my Sublime Philosophical Crap Test if you are interested in taking a slightly more intellectual test that has just as many insane ramblings as this one does!



There was a Tag Sale at our church recently so crap was stored in our garage. After it was cleaned out my mother found various items for her doll house like a staircase, doors and shingles. Saturday I spent most of the day painting said shingles. It was a nice change of pace I think.

Last night my parents and I went to see Jewel and Rob Thomas in concert at one of the casinos. It had been awhile since I saw a concert and even longer since I went to see one at the casinos. (Ironically, I think the last one was Jewel at the other casino like 3 years ago.)

I went mainly to see Jewel as everyone who reads this could guess even after a lobotomy. After all, I think Rob Thomas said it best when he said, "I fucking love Jewel." She did not disappoint. Definitely the best versions of "Hands", "Down So Long" and "Intuition" I've ever heard. I'm unsure why she felt the need for the full band to join her on "Foolish Games" as I think a solo acoustic treatment as she did on "You Were Mean For Me" was called for here but that was really my only complaint about her set. Oh and that it was too short...

When Rob Thomas played my favorite Matchbox 20 song, "If You're Gone" third in his set, I was worried it was going to be all down hill from there. I'm surprised myself to report that was not the case. He played all my favorite Matchbox 20 songs and "Smooth" but the best parts of the night were the covers. His cover of David Bowie's "Let's Dance" was probably the best cover of a David Bowie song I've heard with the exception of Natalie Merchant's "Space Oddity" and maybe the Wallflowers' "Hero". (I probably should point out I can count on one hand the number of Bowie covers I've heard in my life but that shouldn't diminish the accomplishment.) The biggest complaints I have with his set was, towards the end especially, almost every song was played like it was his last song. You don't waste the jam! You aren't the Allman Brothers or Cream. The other problem I had, and this maybe was due to where we were sitting, the distortion seemed worse on songs I was not familiar with so the concert really didn't make me like him that much better.

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …

Setup Complete

When I wrote my blog post on the previous Netflix series, Luke Cage, I noted it was only about 90% as dark as Daredevil  and Jessica Jones. Iron Fist  is only about 90% as dark as that series.While that does make me question the Mature rating, I have no problem with that.

I feel in the mood to structure at least the beginning of this review on my feelings on complaints I've heard

1. The acting and writing: I'm sure my bar is lower than others but I feel people who feel the strongest about this have never watched movies on Lifetime or Hallmark. (Oddly, I read a comment on Twitter from a complainer that he had higher hopes for Cloak and Dagger on Freeform than  Inhumans on ABC. Special effects budget, sure but writing and acting? I think that's an iffy wager at best but I digress.)

Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick are great as Danny Rand and Colleen Wing. Danny to me is just as a 25 year old man who spent 15 years cut off from the world as he knew it in a monastery (think ster…
