Why am I not surprised.

You scored as Hedonism. Your life is guided by the principles of Hedonism: You believe that pleasure is a great, or the greatest, good; and you try to enjoy life’s pleasures as much as you can.

Haven't done one of these in awhile

Very Long Quiz )
kmusser: (Default)
1. Which era were you supposed to have been born into, and why?

I think I was just about 20 years too late, would've made such a good flower child.

2. You've finally been apprehended after your year-long nun-killing spree - what is your last meal on death row, and what song do you have playing through your headphones as the switch is flicked?

Last meal: Pizza
Last song: Happy Phantom by Tori

More silly questions )
kmusser: (America)
1. Do you follow current events? Why/Why not?

Yes, because I'm curious and I like to know what's going on around me.

2. Where do you get most of your news from?

Salon.com - by far my favorite news site, is definitely my primary source - that and my network of friends. Occasionally supplemented by Guardian, Washington Post, Wonkette, Techdirt, AP feeds (for science news) and Utne magazine.

3. Do you believe that the media is biased? Why or why not?

Of course it is, everything has a bias.

4. Will you be voting this year?

Yes, will probably be an election judge as well.

5. Describe one political issue that really pushes your button.

Trashing the environment for short-term economic gains. I think if we make our planet unlivable for future generations, most other political issues really don't matter all that much. Ok, the gay marriage bullshit bugs me too.

Job quiz from [livejournal.com profile] snarkymarcy:

1. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A cartographer.

2. When you were 18, what did you think you were going to do with your life (career/college major.)

Become a cartographer :-)

3. It's hard to know what to do with your life when you're 18...is it at all similar to what you do now?

Yes *grin* Ok, so I was focused.

4. What was your favorite/most interested past job you had that is unrelated to what you are doing now?

Favorite was working retail at game stores.

Most interesting was probably my brief stint as a Christian Minister.

5. Guidance Counselor Marcy here...Money is not an object (you won enough lottery to now worry about how to pay the bills, and you are bored/it's the Star Trek universe where we have evolved past money.) What job would you do to fill your time?

The same thing as I'm doing now, GIS, though more field work would be fun. Would also switch to part-time to leave more time for travelling.

I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Some people I know relatively well, or we have something in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes spinach."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal.


For those of you that have posted this, I'll be adding Karl trivia to your comments during the afternoon.

Copied from [livejournal.com profile] ani_moore with some entries borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] fairerhiannon.

3. Whatever you don't bold, replace with things about you.

For those doing the MBTI test and are curious, I'm a poster child for INFP. Now you know.

For those interested in this there are better descriptions of the types here, here (scroll to the bottom of the page), and here. There is a breakdown of how common each type is here.

Karl Musser is a great intellectual. He is also a great adventurer, a great party animal, a great judge of character, a great conversationalist, a great comedian, a great philosopher and a great self publicist. Indeed, Karl Musser is rather of the opinion that if anything in this world is 'great' it must have his name on it and if it isn't, maybe he will try it anyway and make it great by the simple act of lending his name to it. Karl is a Sagittarian and there are two things that no Sagittarian can resist. The first is a challenge. The second is a tendency to exaggerate. Therefore whatever Karl Musser sets out to accomplish in this world must be: a) difficult and b) big. Why set out to climb a piffling little hill like Everest when there are mountains on Mars that are truly steep? All you need is a rope, a pick and a spaceship. In Karl's mind, this (or something not far from it) represents a perfectly logical thought process. Who cares whether he actually manages to get to Mars? He will have fun trying and at least, if he tells enough people that this is his plan, nobody will ever think of him as boring.

Here we have the essence of Karl Musser's biggest secret fear. Karl Musser is absolutely terrified that one day someone will rumble him. He will be revealed as an ordinary person who thinks ordinary thoughts. Oh shame of shames, what will he do then? To keep this dreadful possibility at bay, Karl will go to any length, he will climb any mountain (even if it does happen to be on Mars) and he will swim any sea (even if he can't swim yet - he'll learn how to one of these days - you just wait and see). Or perhaps, more realistically (but only a bit) Karl will set out to prove that he really is a great intellectual\adventurer\philosopher etc. etc. Much to everyone's surprise (including his own) in the fullness of time... it will all turn out to be true!

from http://pisces.bubble.com/webstars/friend/friend.cfm thanks to [livejournal.com profile] allah_sulu for the link.

What I want to know is how did they find out about my Mars Project?
