... if you wish to post this in your journal, it's been requested that you title it "I'm afraid of 19 out of 72 common fears" Well whoops

If you get more than 30, I strongly recommend some counseling.
If you get more than 20, you’re paranoid.
If you get 10-20, you are normal.
If you get 10 or less, you’re fearless.
People who don’t have any are liars ...or Galvatron. ;)



I AM INVINCIBLE!!!! :D

Except I'm the biggest wimp in the world. This test it is flawed. FLAWED I SAY.

And another one stolen from withalacrity

The Big Read thinks the average adult has only read six of the top 100 books they've printed below.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise those you intend to read
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them.
