One of the many ways in which the internet
has advanced human civilization
is to provide innumerable useless quizzes to waste our free time
. This is simply another one of them.
Haven't you always wondered what particular disease
you most resemble? Well, surf to http://shite.squirming.net/afflictiontest/ and find out. Answer 16 simple and largely irrelevant questions and you'll quickly learn the answer. They even provide a nifty graphic for your personal web page
. But I'm not going to put it on my web page, because the first time I took the test, it told me:
Congratulations, you're gonorrhea!
And the second time I took it, I discovered I was syphilis
. I know that not all of the available diseases are venereal disease
s, but damned if I can catch any of them.
I'm tempted to start The Everything Horrible Affliction Registry
, but then that's just asking for trouble...
