I hope not, 'cause I took it and said some real nasty shit about the
intelligence of whoever assembled the thing ...

I haven't taken the survey, since I got confused at the part where I had to choose between being between the ages of 15-20 and 20-30. I am 20... :?

(On a serious note, I'm not really a hardcore SF guy, as much as I like it, so the survey might not apply to me.)

Try holding down control and clicking both? Good point though...

You seem to be a mature 20. Go with the second choice.

What exactly is a "fluid" sexuality?

Does that mean you just go with whatever's available?

I don't really understand how it's different than bisexuality, I haven't been keeping up with the modern terms for sexuality and gender as much as I should have...

Maybe multisexual was what they were looking for?

Maybe "fluid" means at any given time you're either gay or hetero, but never at the same time?

All google comes up with is discussions about whether sexuality is fixed or fluid, so I'm guessing that's a good guess.

If there are no fluids you're not doing it right.

I was wondering which one of y'all were going to --- uhm, have a response. :angelic-green:
I just figured it would be Freak saying something along the line of: "and that's the problem."
