Rega's Hellside Detour 4: AmbushedThe city was just within reach, the business and residential towers were now beginning to obstruct the horizon.Rega's Hellside Detour 4: Ambushed by coolbreeze88
As we both continued our trek back towards safety, the narrow trail widened merged with other trails just as tributaries form together to form a main river.
The way the roads arrange was analogous to that of a tree, completely the opposite of the typical box and grid pattern and rather creative too.
The outskirts were destitute; the farmsteads that seemed to have only been able to only provide subsistence level yields lay abandoned.
The houses were small bungalows at best, possibly with beds and the wood furnace/ sharing the same room.
How could the people who provide food for society live in such poverty?
Rega’s hasn’t seen anything like this; usually farmers were compensated for the winter months, but from what he could tell from the rickety log fences and shacks was that they were working in conditions of borderline serfdom.
Wait, farmers grow food and….
To Halt Lightning, Part 2: The Din.To Halt Lightning, Part 2: The Din. by Mustardman8
The stairs leading down to the ticket plaza were wide, and the people traversing them were loud. Children were tossing york coins into a lit fountain in the center that illuminated the vaulted ceiling. I waited for what felt like an hour in line for the ticket booths, and when the group in front of us finished, the next group, myself included, took their place.
"An aurorean fox?" said the young flowercat behind the counter, "What brings you into our fair city?"
"I'm here on business," I said as I stepped into the photo booth.
"Of course he is..."
I was to be on the new lightning rail's first trip into the city, and the departure time was in less than thirty minutes, so I didn't have time to loiter in the ticket plaza. This was a shame, since there were several places to sit down and eat whose warm aesthetics or peppy signage seemed to actively invite my atte

Your result for The Social Privilege Test...
Approximately 14% of the population fits this result.
You're fairly affluent, and fate has dealt you a better hand than most. You may have experienced some minor setbacks in your life, but you're still better off than at least 85% of the U.S. population. Typically one of the more sheltered segments of American society, you probably have led a fairly easy life. But has it made you happy?
I recommend that you keep your eyes open for signs of privilege in your everyday life. Notice the people who wait on you and perform services for you. How do you benefit from using people of lesser status than you? Are you more courteous and polite to people who look moneyed than to people who look poor? Is the balance of power between the rich and the poor fair?
Take my other tests. You know you wanna!
p>Your result for What kind of drink are you?...</p>
10 Daiquiri, 0 Captain, 5 Milk and 10 Mixed!
If you were a drink you would be a strawberry daiquiri. Your feminine side is the most dominate side in you. Your most likely a romantic, passionate person who enjoys the finer things in life. You'd love to visit Paris one day and have a romantic meal with a loved one. Your the Strawberry Daiquiri.
Your result for The Are You a Psychopath? Test...
The Healthy Lunatic
You scored 73% empathic, 38% delusional, 62% sociable, and 39% law-abiding!
You're delusional, but otherwise a normal member of society. Maybe you think weird thoughts or believe in things other people don't, but you're able to function just fine. You're definitely not a psychopath.
Your result for The Personality Defect Test...
You are 43% Rational, 43% Extroverted, 43% Brutal, and 86% Arrogant.
You are the Starving Artist! Like some sort of emaciated Frenchman, you sit in your fancy little chair and contemplate beauty, meaning, flowers, and all kinds of other ridiculous crap. You are more intuitive than logical, and are primarily guided by your heart and emotions. You are also very introverted and gentle. Of course, this does not mean that you do not have an ego. In fact, you are surprisingly arrogant for someone so emotional and gentle. This is why you are best described as a starving artist. You are very introspective and quite sure of yourself, as any accomplished artist is, yet your views are impractical, guided by feelings, and overly gentle. You probably find math, logic, and similar intellectual pursuits offensive to your artistic sensibilities, and you prefer the open-endedness of artistry because it's infinitely easier to ponder the beauty of a sock than to build rocketships. So really you have no reason to be arrogant, you big doofus, because the skills you value (emotion, spirit, art, etc.) in yourself are valuable only on a subjective level, meaning your arrogance is purely masturbatory, like the insipid self-pleasuring of some twat who spouts artistic nonsense only for the pleasant tinkling sound it makes upon his indiscriminating ears. In short, your personality is defective because you are arrogant, introverted, introspective, gentle, and thoroughly irrational...posessing most of the traits needed to be a starving--and useless--artist. So get out there, write a few short stories that are allegories for the indestructible spirit of socks, and starve!
To put it less negatively:
1. You are more INTUITIVE than rational.
2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.
3. You are more GENTLE than brutal.
4. You are more ARROGANT than humble.
Your exact opposite is the Capitalist Pig.
If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you could very well go either way. For example, someone with 42% Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well. Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored near fifty percent for certain traits.
The other personality types:
The Emo Kid: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.
The Starving Artist: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.
The Bitch-Slap: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

Be sure to take my Sublime Philosophical Crap Test if you are interested in taking a slightly more intellectual test that has just as many insane ramblings as this one does!

I am a self-proclaimed pseudo-intellectual who loves dashes. I enjoy politics, science, philosophy, fart jokes, and water balloons, not necessarily in that order. I spend 95% of my time online, and the other 5% of my time in the bathroom, longing to get back on the computer. If, God forbid, you somehow find me amusing instead of crass and annoying, be sure to check out my blog and podcast at SaintGasoline.com.
