The Quiz Fascination

I don't know what's fun about a quiz. I have taken thousands of them before, but they're never much fun. In the Philippines, I doubt you'd met a teacher/professor who doesn't say at least once every two weeks "Get a piece of paper, we're going to have a quiz."

It's like a sickness, and it's very catching. Of course, those same teachers/profs are too lazy to check out the answers themselves, so they have us exchange papers with our seat mates to grade it. If that isn't possible because it's too much trouble, they pick someone from the class, grade their paper, and then hand that student the rest of the papers to grade.

Gratis of course. I've done a few of those myself. If you're from the Philippines, I bet you'd done it too. I am not sure about here. I studied Biochemistry and Chemistry here, and I don't remember if we ever had a quiz. If we do, I doubt any of the professors would let me grade it. One of my US Government professor did asked me to ran the scantrons for exams, but that wasn't all the time. Plus she took me out to see how the money were made in the Federal Building. Tons of money. The only ones they gave me were shredded ones.

However, I did get to met the Federal whatever. I don't remember his name, but I remember being properly impressed.

Here's another test. It looks like I am in the wrong era. Really, just because I prefer I Love Lucy to Beverly Hills 90210? I don't do drugs, had a mild overdose on Demerol while giving birth, it felt like an elephant is reading a book on my chest singing at the top of his lungs. I don't know why anyone would crave that sensation, it was the furthest thing from fun that I had experience. Go ahead, take the test too...I bet you can't resist it either. I wonder which era you'll land in.

You Belong in 1968

If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

1990 - 1999: With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!
