Generic bitching:

Let's start a pool to see how many quizzes will be posted to MeFi in the next year.

Ok, 2 in a day isn't that much compared to the rest of the week.. maybe someone should register amiaquizornot.com.

Which metafilter user are you?

Its pretty sad to goto blogdex and see that that the most popular links are purity-type tests. I just assumed people would get tired of this. I see them as geek friendly fortune astrology. What's the difference between "I'm Terry Valentine from The Limey" and "I'm a pisces." Not much.

To qualify as a joke, it must first be funny.

I'd rather the quizzes than the highly narrow-interest sports items that keep popping up: "Guy you've never heard of takes a job at place you've never heard of doing something of interest only to me! Controversy! Discuss."

But then, maybe I'm the last person on Earth who doesn't think a bunch of people throwing a ball is above-the-fold, front page, 48-point headline news.

Okay, okay. In reality, I'd love to live in a world where a ball being thrown or a kitten being found in the woodshed is the most important news of the day. I'm rather tired of people going around exploding each other at this point.

Argh. I'm whining. Put keyboard down, back away slowly.
