Okay, on to
more invasive, prying, personal questions about your Fuckedupness.
We need to measure
a few more dimensions in order to get a full assessment of your personal
fuckedupness profile. So let's make some up!
How about - Frequency,
Duration, Location and Publicity? Sounds good to me.
So let's start.
Fucked Up Dimension
No. 2: Frequency. Answer this question to determine your Personal
Fucked Up Frequency. Same answering rules apply as before - whatever
#2: How often are you personally in pain about your life?
Chronically, constantly, often, often, often.
How the hell should I know? Do I look like I run around asking myself
that question all the time? Well, I don't.
Randomly, according to my mood.
On a pretty precise daily/weekly/monthly or yearly schedule.
Whenever I am about to get my period.
When certain pretty predictable things happen - like, I wake up.
Several times a day.
Oh I don't fucking know.
Now, for your score.
You are a Gloomy Exaggerator.
Very good. This is a clever life strategy to minimize pain by pretending
you are in more of it than you really are. Thus fooling God, that
malicious prankster, and Other People, those happiness-stealing bloodsuckers.
The only drawback is that sometimes you fool yourself and you actually
don't get to enjoy your clever joke on the world.
Congratulations! You are a Liar. Along with everybody else in the
world. But you personally are a Dogmatic Liar, not admitting
to complexities likes Sometimeses and Maybes. This may be because
you are Not Too Bright and have a hard time making out anything that's
not Yes or No. Or you may like to think of yourself as a Firm and
Decisive Liar, boldly staking claim to improbabilities. You may be
a Harsh Liar who won't allow anything but Alwayses and Nevers into
your own or anyone else's life. Or you just might like to pretend
that you are one of these. At any rate, you are a Liar. Welcome!
You don't actually know how often, but you figure it's safe to say
Sometimes. You don't want to be left out of the Fucked Up Derby and
be all by yourself by saying Never. On the other hand, you don't want
to commit yourself to anything by saying Always or A Lot. You are
Playing It Safe with Fuckedupness because you figure it can
be dangerous. And you are right. To up your score, though, and become
more popular, you need to take a few more risks with fuckedupness.
Go back and answer the question again and this time choose Often.
is the average normal answer. You probably picked d) the last time
too, didn't you? Honest, yet boring. You are living the American
dream of ongoing intermittent pain that you don't really feel
like doing anything about because you are so very very tired from
living the American dream. Congratulations and welcome!
Okay, you have Life Arthritis in which all the joints of your
life swell up and ache, particularly when something bad is going to
happen. It's a real pain and debilitating and it wears you down and
you definitely qualify for sympathy and a good seat at all the Fucked
Up Club meetings and banquets. This is also a bold, definitive, and
emotional answer so give yourself extra points for verve. Congratulations
You have Advanced Life Arthritis and it's making you crabby.
The correct answer to the question would have been, for those of you
keeping score at home, 'Too Fucking Often, Thank You Very Much.' Welcome.
You either have Pinging Fuckedupness or Responsive Fuckedupness.
If it's Responsive Fuckedupness then you are in good shape because
your fuckedupness arises from your actual life circumstances as they
occur, lasts as long as it needs to and then goes away. This allows
you to be Moody and have a variety of sensations and generally get
more out of life by going up and down and taking the occasional twist
and turn and not sticking to the mind-numbing straight and narrow.
If it's Pinging
Fuckedupness, then you're probably all right, but a little tired or
a little overstressed or worn down and occasionally when this happens
you will get pinged by some nerve pain about your life for no apparent
reason. This can be irritating and inconvenient but it's not fatal
and it keeps you on your toes. If you chose Randomly, According to
My Mood along with d) or e) then give yourself some bonus points to
up your Fucked Up score.
You have Rigid Fuckedupness, which is not all that rare,
although most people have a hard time sticking to a schedule. This
is usually biologically caused. It's a little weird and maybe freaks
you out a bit and you may or may not want to do something medical
about it. On the other hand, all the other answers could learn a trick
from you and take the time to schedule the occasional burst of Pain
and Fuckedupness just to let off steam.
Ah yes, you and a lot of other people. Cyclical Fuckedupness.
This is nature's way of trying to tell Other People to leave you the
hell alone sometimes. If they took that advice, it'd be a better world
all around. Often however, they don't. Make 'em pay! Cyclical Fuckedupness
can and usually does occur with any of the other answers.
Specific or Localized Fuckedupness. This is caused by specific
things you don't like about your life. This is a good sign that you
can still tell the difference between things you do like and don't
like. Guard this precious asset by trying to kill whatever Fucked
Up Shit is causing your Specific Fuckedupness. Congratulations and
You are both Normally Fucked Up and perhaps, depending on Intensity,
More Fucked Up Than You Deserve. In an ordinary day, several Fucked
Up Shit things should happen to get you All Fucked Up. If you can
really tell, though, and it really feels like Every Day, then it's
a bit much. It's not so much that it is every day, because
of course, in real life you should experience some sort of pain every
day or your body is not working properly and not doing its job. It's
just that when it feels like every day and you're not quite
capable of forgetting that it's every day, well that gets old. Congratulations
and welcome, you are Solidly Fucked Up.
Okay, you are Frequently Fucked Up, often enough and bad enough
that you can't even be sure whether your normal state is Fucked Up
or not. You are definitely in pain and you can have a seat at the
front at the meetings of the Fucked Up Club. Welcome!
All right, that
question was so easy, you almost shouldn't get any points for answering
it. But go ahead and give yourself some anyway. Randomly give yourself
points between 0 and 12 for each answer you gave as well as each answer
you might have liked to have given, various answers you considered
giving, and a Random Bonus Answer just so you won't end the quiz without

at the end.
