Apt as ever

Fifty years ago, the Authoritarian Personality studies attempted to "construct an instrument that would yield an estimate of fascist receptivity at the personality level."
This online, interactive F Scale presents that instrument in its final form.

Your F Score is: 2.2666666666666666
You are a liberal airhead.
I'm sure there's a positive correlation between this F Score and neo-conservatism.

In The Castle last night:

Cheesy had a rather strong Thai Curry and was complaining about just how much it hurt. Two things then happened simultaneously:
  1. Cheesy went, nay ran, to the bathroom
  2. Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire started playing on the music system

Amid the laughter I was reminded of Brendan Grace's version:
Curry is a wonderful thing,
It makes the hind parts sting...

Damned lies

I'm a statistics whore:
