Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

Spot the fake smile (via Embruns). 18 right out of 20: can you beat that?

P.S. Well, actually, I’d rather hear of people who scored far less. Because I find it so simple… well, ok, it can be a bit hard, but I spent the whole test thinking I was answering too easily and there would be traps. And in fact, there weren’t. Since I think it’s so easy to spot, I don’t understand how people could fail.

I like, though, the explaination they give at the end (paraphrased from memory): some may fail this test because it’s easier for us to live in society if we don’t question the sincerity of people’s friendliness. I like the idea that I “chose” to see beyond the surface better than other people, because I refuse compromise and I don’t want to live in an illusion (yeah, I know, there could be a whole philosophical debate about my life here, and you think you know all about it, but we’ll get back to it—not) (okay, well, let’s say I refuse that one illusion, that of simplicity, and I prefer to live through others, that’s the way it is and it’s not so different). I like it when websites flatter me.
