How smart am I?

Hmmm, how smart am I?

We haven’t had a fun quiz for a while, so we’re due.  This one is purely for fun and will only take a minute to complete (ok, maybe 2 minutes for my brother) and I found it at the All The Tests site.

They will often taste fine, but prepared foods contain very little vitamins and minerals, making you eat more just to have enough energy to get with the day. When you are constantly consuming these foods, transferring to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will help you have more power while consuming less. Great blog post.

    This is acquiring a bit a lot more subjective, but I a lot prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you rapidly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you are listening to. Clicking on 1 of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, permitting you to navigate about exploring by comparable artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also wonderful enjoyable, letting you uncover others with shared tastes and becoming buddies with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your buddies are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will probably be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your individual listening habits in case you so choose.
