Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

50. What do you think of the person who took this survey before?

NRT seems like a nice enough bloke 🙂 .


  1. You’re missing a few questions… 🙂

  2. Ah yes, so I am. I blame that on the blogger from who I copied and pasted the questions from 🙂 .

  3. Thanks Neil, have copied and pasted on my MySpace page (and credited you).

  4. Way too US-centric meme!

  5. Only things I thought were US centric at the $2000 car, the word soda (I drink soda water anyway, so it makes sense to me) and the honor roll (honour has a u in it ffs!!).
    I’ve seen much worse…

  6. you guys are retarded…how is the word soda us centric? nobody over here says that.

  7. It depends where you live in the US. I travel quite a lot, and hear “soda” consistently when I travel to California and the Eastern seaboard. “Pop” seems to be more regularly used in the Central and Southern States. Just like some regions say “cola” where other regions say “Coke” (even when referring to Pepsi).
    To say “nobody over here says that” is simply not true. Maybe nobody where YOU are says it, but it’s a popular term in major sections of the US.
    I didn’t think anything in this meme was specific to the US except using the “$$$” sign for the car price.

  8. I Hate u! No I’m just joking. These are pretty random questions on this site. Are all u people e old? Or
