Online Quizes are Getting Out of Hand: My Picks for Future Quiz Titles

tools_to_create_polls

I won’t front (how gangster am I?), I take those online quizzes that have rapidly taken over the internet. Ryan and I even have an email thread with some friends in New York (S/O Jess and Justine) where all we do is take quizzes and share the results (and occasionally create celebrity death pools). As fun as these quizzes are I think some are getting less and less meaningful and more and more [weirdly] specific. Without further adieu, here are my top 10 quiz titles you should see popping up on the inter webs in the next few months.

1.) Which “Wickerman” Character are you?

2.) What Food Network star would be your Best Man/Brides Maid?

3.) Which 19th century decade do you belong in?

4.) What home improvement store are you?

5.) How loud can you scream on a crowded subway?

6.) What type of pulled muscle are you?

7.) How good are you at coloring?

8.) What would be your atomic number on the periodic table of elements?

9.) How many toes do you have?

10.) Which online quiz should you take next?

BuzzFeed Has Lost My Respect…Forever

image

In a recent BuzzFeed post they were comparing things that Miley Cyrus looks like. I was all smiles for the post until I reached number 17. “Those wrestling dudes”? BuzzFeed, you just lost all credibility in my eyes. “those wrestling dudes”, which you might know or not, are actually the great HBK and HHH. Straighten up kid, you look like an idiot.

PS- God help you if Vince finds out. Lawsuit city. Why? and on what grounds? Because he is Vincent Kennedy McMahon, and on the grounds that he wants to.

Am I Missing Out On The Latest Fashion Trend?

Why put it in your pockets when you can put it in a bag? That’s the question more and more American men seem to be asking as the man bag — or “murse” — industry booms. Sales of men’s handbags and totes rose 3% to $957 million in the 12 months through June, while briefcases, duffel, laptop, and messenger bags declined, according to NPD Group, a market research firm. Backpacks also experienced a surge, growing 24% to $684 million in revenue during the period. “Men have been silently learning just how important it is to have a bag to carry their ‘stuff,’” such as electronics, chargers, headphones, and books, Marshal Cohen, NPD’s chief industry analyst, wrote in a post on the firm’s blog today. “And just think about the practical side of this. Men’s clothing has gotten tighter again. Now where do men put those keys or phone? With this change in fashion and lifestyle, men now do need to carry a bag.” – BuzzFeed

Does this mean I need a murse? American men spending almost $1 Billion on a fashion item can’t be wrong. On the one hand, I don’t necessarily want to look like the guy in the black vest. He’s probably a sweet guy, but I don’t know if that look gives off the “I’m a 25 year old male looking for a female” vibe I’m going for. On the other hand, the guy who might be Jamie Lannister looks so badass it’s unreal. Plus, I hate when I have my keys in my jean pockets, and cell phones are getting so big it’s a hassle to try and cram them in there. A murse might be the only way to go. If I become a murse guy, I definitely have to double down my scarf collection. A murse without a scarf is a fashion no-no.

P.S. I’d bet anything the bearded guy paid for his murse with a credit card. A Lannister always pays his debts.

10 Trips To Take In Your 20’s

While this list doesn’t incorporate everything that I would like to see and do, I completely agree with the thought behind it.  Get out there and explore new places, meet new people, and try new things.  I recently met some new friends who are taking 2 months to explore places they’ve never been before, and I think that’s awesome.  It’s a big world, experience it.
