How lame are facebook quizzes?


I know many have pretty strong views about this, but since this is MY blog, you have no option but to read MY views about it. Now get yourself a seat.

To answer this question my friend let us delve in to the deep thought as to why facebook was created in the first place.


For whatever reasons facebook was created, as of now, its become a playing ground for some morons who think of themselves as the know-it-all so-called motivational gurus.
Why on Earth (why does earth have an "E" in caps? Am I gay or something? oh well let me try out a facebook quiz to check!) do we need some stupid quizzes (mostly created by ******* idiots) to tell us what we are, how we should be and if we're gay!
As far as quizzes go, I have seen some pretty lame ones like how fat are you or how lazy are you. Man, if I were lazy or something, I would know that myself! I dont need a bloody quiz to tell me how lazy or fat I am! And these quizzes actually tell you the percentage of your laziness (like one of them told me that I was like 93% lazy). Dude what does that even mean? Whats the difference between 70% lazy and 97% lazy? And who the hell gives a damn!
(oh btw, I just tried out that facebook quiz "how gay are you" and the answer is 11%)

And the worst of all quizzes? Well you really wanna know? Okay, the worst of facebook quizzes are the ones which tell you which movies describes your life. Believe me this one is the worst worst worst quiz you'll find on planet Earth (I'm really gay, aint I? "E" in caps again). And you dont wanna know what the result was in my case! No you dont...dont you dare bother me. STOP IT!!!

Okay..okay, it said the movie which best describes my life is...Jurassic Park!!!
I mean how lame is that? Do you get lamer than that? I mean in what aspect is my life like that movie? Am I those gay dinosaurs? (btw, some of those dinos were gay, oh not gay but hermaphrodites, now if you dont know what that aren't straight!) Or am I the metrosexual Dr. Grant? Phew, I have spent sleepless days and sleepless nights (hang on, you dont sleep during daytime do you? who cares? I do) pondering what deep philosophical thought may have provoked this disastrous outcome of the silly facebook quiz...

Finally, I gave up! I found absolutely no answer to the fact as to why Jurassic Park was the movie which best described my life and why I was exactly 11% gay.

After intense research with some of the greatest thinkers in the world I came to the conclusion that the gay community doesnt like facebook quizzes. And that some of them are indeed...very inaccurate. What if I'm 12% gay and not 11%? What if someone gets to know that he's 90% gay (simply because he likes Coldplay; yeah according to some quizzes, liking Coldplay is a gay trait. I'm pretty sure Chris Martin wont be too happy to hear that) and does something foolish to himself or to others? What about if he has a family? What if he's weak hearted? Look its not wrong to be gay, but who gives anyone the right to tag someone as gay? What does a person gain by creating such quizzes which analyse others when they themselves are nothing but...whatever! This sense of judging others is really really irritating.

And the worst part? Well, the worst part is, these quizzes come up with these stupid notifications informing you that some or other friend of yours has "recommended" you a quiz, which he/she has taken (doesnt say that its a complete waste of your time).

Anyway, enough of beating around the bush. All I meant by all this is that facebook quizzes suck! And its really a shame that facebook is tolerating and encouraging these stupid applications. Well what can you do? Facebook is on a myspace takeover spree (at least in terms of number of users) and has no intention of doing anything that would dampen its curiosity factor. At the end of the day lets face it, facebook quizzes (no matter how lame they are) is a hot favourite thing across all ages of users, and yeah, no matter how lame this may sound its true: facebook quizzes gave me an opportunity to write something on my blog. :)
