This is fun:

Cambridge Purity Test

I got 144%, which is lame, really, but I couldn't be bothered actually working out all the colleges I'd slept at / had formal hall at, so I guessed a slightly small number.

Also The skeptics Bible which is something I've always wanted to do myself done really very well.

Your Cambridge Quotient is 159%


Our Verdict:
A bit sad, but all is not lost. Hopefully you'll graduate in a couple of terms, and the Real World will seem like a bit of a shock, we're sure you'll adapt in a couple of years. In the meantime, try and lengthen your vacation and shorten terms, and try to visit friends at other Universities as much as possible.



...but they didn't scale for number of years actually spent here racking up all these points! (most of which are for visiting far-out places like, ooh, the Grafton).

Oh dearie me. I'll blame that Sheila and her Dog society thing. Oh yes.

Your Cambridge Quotient is 125%

Our Verdict:
Marvellous! You're in the same bracket as me, so you're obviously completely well-balanced and will adjust to Real Life without any problem after graduation. You've obviously embraced the wild experiences Cambridge has to offer, without forgetting that it is that much different to the rest of the world.


Ooh! There's a point for getting supervised by GG - only Newnham English students from before 1998 are eligible for that!

78%. “Well done, while you are not afraid to have a go, you have resisted becoming sucked into the pit of ponceyness that is Cambridge. You could even safely purchase some items of college clothing, and become involved in the odd society without losing that important sense of reality.”

Gah, thought I was going to have the lowest rating with 87%, too...

Heh heh. 93%, although I lied on one; technically I do have a college scarf, but it is in the form of balls of wool, a college scarf in potentia as it were. I then gave myself the bloody point for thinking the phrase in potentia without a trace of irony. I'll be knowing which fork to use for which course next, and then it'll be trouble.

And thanks for the skeptics Bible link. And a Koran too! That's brave...

I'm 108%, not bad and I expect it'll go up a lot over the next few years. Though quite a lot of points where aquired before I actually matriculated...
Anyone else notice the fact that it seems impossible to know more than one person from Homerton?

117%, but of course I had lots of time to rack up points.

It needs updating though; Chicago's and Route 66 disappeared years ago. I think we should get bonus points for having been to them when they were called that, and 100 bonus points to anyone who went to Cindy's when it really was called Cindy's.

118%.

Meanwhile may I suggest that many of the problems SAB come up with have more do to with the way they interpret the Bible (which is almost a parody of how Christians read the Bible) rather than problems with it. I think a good example of this is what they say about Proverbs 26:4-5:

"Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit."

They make the naive assumption that these two sentances are imperatives and therefore contradictory commands.

Properly read they are seen to be in a collection of proverbs, as words of wisdom, rather than a set of commands. It they are read like this they cease to be contradictory.

I mean, are they really suggesting that the person who wrote proverbs was stupid enough not to notice that what he just wrote completely contradicted the sentance before??!? Isn't it more likely if they reach that conclusion that they haven't understood what the author intended?

Sorry, I'm ranting, but people (both Christian and non-Christian) who read the Bible as a set of single-sentance standalone logical propositions directly applicable to us, without thinking about what they are reading and who it was directly addressed to, tend to annoy me. Rant over.

It seems to me to be a rather clever way of saying "Yes, it's yet another dilemma which doesn't have a simple right/wrong answer so I'm afraid you're actually going to have to think about this."
