a lazy sunday

It's been a long time since I've done a quiz, but for some reason this seems like a good time for one. And I don't know why the header is so hard to read, but it says You Are 61% Likely to Survive Another Great Depression. (This is kind of an interesting quiz, actually).




You Are 61% Likely to Survive Another Great Depression



Even though you may not be expecting the worst, you're the type of person who prepares for the worst.

You live a relatively modest life. You don't overspend, and you aren't very materialistic.



You are also quite self sufficient and independent. You have many useful skills.

You can take care of yourself and those you love... which is crucial to surviving another Great Depression.

I am 62% likely to survive another great depression. I guess we are in it together.

I am 56% likely to survive another depression and the rest of it was exactly the same as yours, RC!
Lets hope we don't have to!

I am only 50% able to survive the Great Depression, my cupboards are too bare.

Bare cupboards, but 67% likely to survive. Must be because we live in a city...

This little quiz confirmed what I knew already about my abilitlies to survive financial hard times. While don't have a lot of money scotched away, I do feel that I have the will to adjust, adapt, and survive--and a history of doing just that in the past. At least in these uncertain times I'm taking stock and trying to figure out what I would do. Like you RC, I'm about halfway there and working on improving my odds.

wow. for all your moaning about house falling down, kids eating you out of house and home, no money, etc, you did better than i did. i'm only 54 percent likely.

i think it's because i drive too much and i don't own a weapon.

how's your foot today?

I'm not sure where my score came from. I do have a lot of food stored away, and I could manage without a car although it would SUCK. (At least until soccer season). No weapons, live in a "city" (kind of - does under 100,000 people count as a city??),what else? Can't remember the rest of the quiz. Hmm.

My foot feels a little better, although it's still really swollen. I'm trying so hard not to beat myself up, but it's really discouraging. I had gotten to the point where I could run a mile straight with no problems at all, and I was about to increase that this week. I'm liking the running a lot, and now I'm all freaked out that I won't be able to continue. Or that I'll lose the "endurance" I've gained.

I'm not sure how to deal with this except to stay off my foot as much as possible - which isn't easy, physically or mentally.

Only 51% likely. Not inspiring...!

Frances said...

Mine said 89% - but it did tell me I would survive because of my stockpile of ammo... What!? where did that arrive from...? maybe because I have no weapons it presumes I have ammo? LOL

laurie said...

ah, you'll get back the running. do something else in the meantime, to keep your wind up. swim, maybe?

bone bruise takes a while.

how did you do this, again?
