  • How average are you?

    This is from a link on a thread in the IRL forum. The average person:

    *Has nine friends and is within five years of his best friend's age.
    *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone.
    *Believes in God and has never doubted His existence.
    *Eats 25 pounds of candy per year and by age 50 has lost 12 teeth.
    *Usually goes to bed before midnight.
    *Goes to church at least once a month.
    *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be.

    I personally:

    *Don't keep track of how many friends I have, but am easily within a year of my best friend's age.
    *Eat cereal dry, and generally stay away from milk due to lactose intolerance.
    *Believe in God and have never doubted His existence.
    *Don't keep track of how much candy I eat, but still have all my teeth.
    *Am in bed by 10 p.m. because I get up at 4:30 a.m.
    *Go to church every Sunday.
    *Have been famous, at least on a small local scale; discovered fame is meaningless, and am perfectly happy being an anoynmous Internet dweeb.

    In short, I'm not average. How about you?

    This sums up me by their standard:

    *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone.
    *Eats 25 pounds of candy per year
    *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be.

    But then I never wanted to be average.

      *Has nine friends and is within five years of his best friend's age: I have more than that and my best friend and I are the same age.

      *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone: Don't eat cereal anymore. Usually it's a power bar.

      *Believes in God and has never doubted His existence: True, but when I lost my sister it sort of made me wonder about his existence.

      *Eats 25 pounds of candy per year and by age 50 has lost 12 teeth: No, I have all of them sans my wisdom teeth (go ahead and slag me for that one as I left myself open)

      *Usually goes to bed before midnight: Lately yes.

      *Goes to church at least once a month: More like once a year.

      *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be: I was once on the local cartoon show and presented a plaque to "Captain Ernie" does that count?

        *Has nine friends and is within five years of his best friend's age.

        I'm sure I have at least nine friends and my best friend is within a year and a half of my age.

        *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone.

        The only cereal I ever eat is oatmeal so I guess that is sort of true.

        *Believes in God and has never doubted His existence.

        Believe in God but I've had my doubts during some rough patches in my life.

        *Eats 25 pounds of candy per year and by age 50 has lost 12 teeth.

        Yes about the candy. Holy fright! 12 teeth is a lot of teeth to lose unless you count baby teeth.

        *Usually goes to bed before midnight.

        More like before 10.

        *Goes to church at least once a month.

        Probably less than once a month at the moment.

        *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be.

        I once lived within two miles of Hugh O'Brien and Carman Electra. Ehh. Guess that doesn't make me famous. Becoming famous is a very low priority just above entering the priesthood.

            When were you on?

            As for the others -
            My best friend was born one week before I was;
            I do drink the milk on the rare occasions I have cereal;
            I've never doubted His existance;
            Don't eat a 1/2 pound of candy a week, and at 38 have all my teeth;
            Church once a month sounds about right, on average;
            I ain't quiet, everybody else is too loud.

                *Has nine friends and is within five years of his best friend's age.

                I'm blessed in having too many friends to count. I'm 66. My best friend is 9 (Candy - Boston Terrier).

                *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone.

                Don't eat cereal. Don't drink milk. Like Seinfeld, "I'm lactose intolerant, I just won't put up with it."

                *Believes in God and has never doubted His existence.

                Believes? Yes! Doubts? Well, sometimes recent world events (tsunami, earthquakes, hurricanes, war, Republicans ( ), etc.) have had me scratching my head.

                *Eats 25 pounds of candy per year and by age 50 has lost 12 teeth.

                Not much on candy but drink Pepsis with both hands. Have all my teeth although the uppers aren't completely paid for yet.

                *Usually goes to bed before midnight.

                Yes, but with the TV on.

                *Goes to church at least once a month.

                No, but with the TV on.

                *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be.

                  *Has nine friends and is within five years of his best friend's age.

                  I don't have any friends I'd consider close; ie, people I hang with. Mind you, if certain parties lived closer, that would certainly change, but let's face it, I live in the middle of the middle of nowhere.

                  *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone.

                  Depends on the cereal, but usually, yes.

                  *Believes in God and has never doubted His existence.

                  I believe in "a God". I'm not sure of "His" (actually I prefer "Her") nature, but I'm sure it's not at all what we've been led to believe for so long...no flames, please. But yes, I have doubted the existence of a God. Many times.

                  *Eats 25 pounds of candy per year and by age 50 has lost 12 teeth.

                  I'm not much of a candy eater. I still have all my teeth less the wisdoms at 44.

                  *Usually goes to bed before midnight.

                  Usually. But probably less often than most.

                  *Goes to church at least once a month.

                  I don't go to any established church and haven't in at least 20 years. But I can see the work of a deity in just about everything, especially in art and nature.

                  *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be.

                  I'm almost famous, and I definitely want to be more so. But I'd settle for infamous.

                      *Don't eat cereal. When I used to, I would drink the milk.

                      *Believe, yes. Never doubted His existence; well......only in really really bad times.

                      *I eat a LOT of candy. I set the bell curve high on that average, and make up for the rest of you that don't. I have all my teeth, and haven't had a cavity for 9 years. Yay me!

                      *In bed before midnight on work days. Usually up past that on weekends.

                      *Don't make it to church very often. I may be off the mark here, but I have trouble believing that the "average" American goes to church at least once a month. I know way more people that don't then folks that do.

                      *Certainly not famous and don't have any desire to be. Now when I was a teenager, and an aspiring rock star in my own mind, well, the desire was a bit different.

                        Within 5 years? If you count my wife (who is my best friend), then no.

                          I'd be disappointed to learn I only have 9 friends. My best friend is my age.

                          *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone.
                          I don't eat cereal anymore but when I did I definitely drank the milk.

                          *Believes in God and has never doubted His existence.
                          I absolutely believe and I've absolutely doubted over the years. Not just during bad times but sometimes upon reflection. I question the sincerity of anybody who claims otherwise.

                          *Usually goes to bed before midnight.
                          I love to eat but candy is not a weakness. I still have all my teeth.

                          *Goes to church at least once a month.
                          Sadly I don't but my kids do. I need to go more often but I also know that I practice a Christian lifestyle better than many of my friends who go to church every Sunday.

                          *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be.
                          Gotta admit...I like being recognized. I don't think I'd like to be famous but I could see where it wouldn't suck.

                            I have few friends and my wife is my bestest freind.
                            *Drinks the milk in the bowl after the cereal is gone.
                            Absolutely!
                            *Believes in God and has never doubted His existence.
                            I'm agnostic...that about sums up both part of this.
                            *Eats 25 pounds of candy per year and by age 50 has lost 12 teeth.
                            [/i]Probably; lost only baby teeth and wisdom's[/i]
                            *Usually goes to bed before midnight.
                            In what time zone? Virtually never, but I work some wierd, irregular hours.
                            *Goes to church at least once a month.
                            Did I mention that I am agnostic?
                            *Is not famous and doesn't necessarily want to be.
                            Not famous myself, but I work for one of the most famous people in the world (indirectly).

                              You have to drink the milk!
                              I believe in God but have doubted his existence.
                              I probably don't eat 25lbs of candy unless beef jerky counts.
                              I work 2nd shift so I go to bed around 4
                              I don't go to church here in Lafayette, but I visit my parents once a month and always go ot church with them.
                              I only want to be famous if it is because I am the Indy 500 champion.
