Congratulations on knowing everything. You’re like Joan Holloway, the Dos Equis man, and the President of the United States all rolled into one.

I might have been a little conservative scoring

You know a lot about some things…but you’re perhaps seriously lacking in certain areas. Excusable, if you’ve been living under a rock or in a bomb shelter for the past 30 years.

After 83 years and 2 kids that turned out better than I could have hoped…..

@dalehileman,
I didn't go by whether I liked doing something, but whether I could.

I don't do facebook for instance, but I know how to change my privacy settings.

I once made a website.

You don't often see me changing a tire, but I could do it.

I once put together a piece of furniture, so I guessed I could do the same with something from IKEA.


What I remembered after doing this was how my father always indicated to me how I would be a failure at life, but was at the same time unwilling to teach me how to do any of the things he knew I would fail at. When I went off on my own, I waited for the other shoe to drop for years, until I realized I'd been doing quite well thank you.

I've never come across anything in life that was that hard, if I needed to learn it, to be quite honest.

You're to be congratulated Chai but isn't it pretty time-consuming

My No. 1 Son recently fetched the family a shredder with 4 in. rim. Although I'm a retired electronics writer, builder and inventor while he is a highly-paid test engineer, we spent an hour trying to inflate the damn things, then finally gave up in favor of innertubes

A father is almost always a major trial

Honestly, Chai, to be quite honest I can't believe you're being quite honest

My father was an alcoholic sadist and rather stupid. By the time I was supposed to come to the realization in life that one's parents were smart, I had verified how little he knew.

Last time I made it up to my home state, I made a special point of pissing on his grave.

This test is slanted toward people who drive, who have cars. I protest!!!

@Roberta,
I found that refreshing. I find buzzfeed slanted to people who like science fiction. Maybe not this one questionaire.

Also, they're very insistent on the view that people have favorite colors. I have dealt with colors in paint and design for decades and like colors across the spectrum in different situations.

Can't fix the faucet, ski, do a fancy dive, never tried Twitter or spilled wine on the carpet and never had to parallel park or drive a stick shift.
