    Yes, almost all of them go that way. I believe they are trying to get money out of test takers, somehow, but I don't know how they would make any money, except for the pones selling diets and exercise regimes. I believe that there are some people who always are pegged as older than they are. We don't hear much from them.

    I have taken a few of the tests and they all peg me as being younger than I am. I suppose in some ways that is a good thing.

    The thing with children... It is always hard to let them go. I feel exactly the same. I can talk about my son all day and once he is not with me - I miss him. But I appreciate that one day he will grow up and leave this house, maybe this city, maybe this country completely. He will look for his way. Is what we wish for our kids, don't we? So look on his absence as if it is a training for future you. Looking on the date of your post - he is probably back now:-) Regarding OCD - I do not take it as an illness. Just another label. Are you dangerous for yourself or anybody else? Are you struggling with adaptation in society? You are what you are. Who cares? I believe all of us have some kind of autism (for example, I like schedules and following the plans;-)), so if some kind of doctor will decide to label me - he can feel free as long it will not influence my employability. Basically, what I want to say - I would not care if I am OCD or not.

    I understand, but I was quite amused when the result came back that I am "the complete opposite of a psychopath, etc., etc."

    No, I did not lie pleasant and caring are not the words that usually come to mind with me. Some people would be quite amused to hear me described that way.

    Now it says she's a lying psychopath.

    I am surprised. You seem like a pleasant and caring person. Did you lie? If you did lie, then try it again without lying.

    Then take the test. You probably will fail.

    I want to take the psychopath test. I always thought I was on the borderline of being a psychopath. Though I suppose the awareness of it means that I am not, and the fact that on a daily basis I resit the urge to kill someone.

    Another type of quiz is the "How Old Are You" things. I may write a post about them some time.

    strong agreement from me.

    I myself prefer to have multiple different devices for multiple purposes. I have what I jokingly call my dumbphone to make calls with, a camera to take pictures with, an ipod to listen to music with.
    Yes, using something designed to do that job usually results in better results.

    Crime and Punishment is one of my favorite books. I love Dostoevsky. I hope you enjoy your reading.

    In my experience Swiss Army knives aren't useful on long hikes or any other time, except ti the manufacturers which make good money from them.

    A number of good points. Maybe implements like swiss army knives are more for when you go camping, or going on a long hike, and then its various functions can be handy even if not as effective as carrying round a small tool kit.

    I'm on Goodreads too but I can never get the hang of the place. I don't know why, but I have so much trouble navigating around. I'm on one group but I've probably let them down. I haven't been back in a couple of months. I haven't read any of those. Interesting list, though. My summer read is Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment.
