Happy birthday to me

Posted by Tim on Saturday, May 21, 2005 | Permalink

I've been writing this - my first blog - for exactly a year, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to look back at my earlier posts.

I've written 46 posts (most crap, some actually quite interesting / amusing) and received 151 comments. At the time of writing I've had 7752 visits - not a huge amount, but still several a day. I've written less (and had fewer visits) since I moved my rants against religion elsewhere (here) but I am going to keep this blog going - after all there are plenty of other things that piss me off:

Big brother government policies.
Conservatism and obsessive traditionalists.
Right-wingers, obsessive capitalists and people who love money more than anything else.
Xenophobes (and obsessively patriotic people).
Racists, sexists and bigots in general.
Tabloid journalism.
Daily Mail readers.
Self-professed moral guardians.
"Trendies".
Dense people (perhaps this is my only real prejudice?)

I'm going to try to be (a little) more personal and less abstract in my writings. So, a bit about me (according to some quizzes at Quizfarm.com) -

What Political Party Do Your Beliefs Put You In?
Anarchism100%
Democrat83%
Green67%
Socialist67%
Communism58%
Fascism8%
Nazi0%
Republican0%
Am I being picky, or would having the total adding up to 100% have made more sense?
(8% fascism ?!?)
BTW, It's been a long time since I put a table in a website. Seems odd.


What is Your World View?
Existentialist94%
Modernist88%
Materialist69%
Postmodernist63%
Cultural Creative50%
Romanticist25%
Fundamentalist6%
Idealist6%
You scored as Existentialist. Existentialism emphasizes human capability. There is no greater power interfering with life and thus it is up to us to make things happen. Sometimes considered a negative and depressing world view, your optimism towards human accomplishment is immense. Mankind is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.


What philosophy do you follow?
Hedonism80%
Utilitarianism70%
Existentialism60%
Justice (Fairness)40%
Kantianism40%
Strong Egoism35%
Nihilism30%
Apathy20%
Divine Command0%
You scored as Hedonism. Your life is guided by the principles of Hedonism: You believe that pleasure is a great, or the greatest, good; and you try to enjoy life’s pleasures as much as you can.
"Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die!"


Some other results without the details -

My mental illness is obsessive compulsive disorder (I knew that anyway).

My sexual style is "Kinky. You are very open to new experiences and opportunities."
(I knew that too).
