    Well, first I will check that you are an appropriate age by asking some things only somebody who is old like me will understand: ASL? What is Bebo? Can I be in your Myspace top friends?

    Bebo is life.

    Hmmm my top 8 is pretty saturated right now. Depends what your MySpace song is that loads when I visit your profile.

    Question for you: at what time were you allowed to dial up to the Internet in the old days?

    You appear to have passed my detailed test.

    My family were too poor to have the internet when I was growing up. I didn't even have a computer until I was 15. Sorry to disappoint

    I mean like between the ages of 12-18 so 15 counts. I just remember constantly arguing with my brother about who was gonna go on msn first at 6pm when we were allowed to dial up.

    I had my first computer at 15 but never had the internet at home. I moved out at 16 and soon acquired a dongle which was my internet source for some time. My MSNing pre-16 was done at internet cafes and via a cheap phone I bought purely because it came with free access to MSN :lol:

    Not a big fan of the quizz and the options.

    I'd ideally see myself closer to the centre economically.

    Most of those who claims to vote Lib Dem are actually in the green area.

    I think it's because the quiz doesn't ask single questions where it's obvious how it affects your political leaning but the questions it does ask are associated with political ideology.

    If your realism + ideology makes you centre than that's fine but it doesn't change your ideology.

    Indeed, but most people didn't really understand what key members of the party were advocating. A significant number of Lib Dems would fall in the purple, though they would be a minority.
