    Seems like they should have tried to devise a result around age 50ish for those who came to Trek during reruns in the 70s, which seems to be the biggest gap highlighted by our results.

    What the Hell? That's the weirdest result yet. Based on a thread in Future of Trek, I thought you didn't like Kelvin or Disco.

    Lol, those questions seem designed to bracket you based on a few limited available responses; I'm not easily pigeonholed. I've never seen "Kelvin" or "Disco" (I'm old enough that "disco" is an entirely different reference); the most recent ST production I've seen is the first thirty minutes of the first Abrams movie.

    I’m a fan of stupid time waste quizzes, but HowStuffWorks are bad quizzes.

    It's not just a bad quiz, it's a terrible quiz. Yet here we are six pages later. ;)

    No worse then those insipid quizzes that circulate on Farcebook - "What is your elf name?", "What type of dog are you?"

    Six pages reminds me of an rpg forum years ago where someone started a thread then apparently found their answer elsewhere, they couldn't delete the thread so just changed the first post to, "Please ignore this thread". I responded, "OK, I'm ignoring it", which snowballed over months and years; page after page of "I'm ignoring it also", "Me too", "Paying no attention", "It's been a year and I'm still ignoring this", "I'm new here but I'll ignore it". In spring of 2010 the host server was going offline so the admins were archiving what was worth taking to the new host; of course the "ignore" thread didn't make the cut, but it had grown to over 300 pages, lol. To this day if someone mentions ignoring something some "old timer" will respond, "Oh please don't start that again!"
