    Just finished watching Limitless :teeth:

    I want that drug :sad:
    A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo, and when the herd is hunted it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now as we know excessive drinking of alcohol kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

    Result above. Strangest test ever. Post yours. :holmes:
    (Original post by Insane Test)
    Always happy in a crowd, you love to converse, to relate, and above all to have fun. You tend to think in a more holistic manner than many others. Like a crow you are attracted to shiny objects, new ideas, playful exciting colors and the thrill of a new personal relationship. You love to talk or gossip. You are highly invested in the reality of day-to-day life. Practicality is far more important than issues of honor or allegiance. You are a creature of the here and now. You are a natural multi-tasker, often switching mid-thought from one duty to another. You have a flair for presenting your personality in your work, and are known as a great storyteller and natural actor. You are very skilled at taking in a barrage of information and distilling what is most important from it. Naturally charming, you are quick to win new friends. Over stimulation is a danger.
    Apart from the first sentence and the bit about acting, that is actually frighteningly accurate. What a terrible person I am.

    Haha, the horoscope part of that is pretty crappy, as Jace has noted above.

    Nah, the thing that was intriguing about that was the test itself. It was ... well, I don't know what it was.

    I don't think people would be interested in what I had for breakfast, or how many times I visited the bathroom. :awesome:

    The key to effects like NZT is to drink way, way more. :yep:

    Oh yeah, true. I found a lot more of that relatable than I've ever found with horoscopes and stuff, but that might simply be because there's so much of it. To be fair, such an odd, abstract test with only 50/50 answers could never be accurate, I suppose!

    I absolutely adore that film... It's on iPlayer right? I'll have to re-watch it before it expires! I agree that the book is better, but I think it's a really good adaptation nonetheless.

    Also, is the 3DS as good as it's made out to be? I've yet to try one in a shop.
