What is this boredom trend sweeping the internet with these BuzzFeed tests? Clearly, I have way too much time on my hands because I have participated. The first one seemed kind of fun, the test was, “which city should you actually live in?” I got Paris, which I found oddly satisfying. The next test I took (again, too much time), was “which famous person should you get drunk with?” My answer was Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender. Again, oddly satisfying, because I’m equally obsessed with both of them. Here’s what I’m wondering though. Why in the world are people taking the time to do these retarded quizzes? Do we think we’ll find out something profound about ourselves we don’t already know. Some strange clarity about oneself that you get from say, your horoscope? I know I’m digging deep here, but they are all over, and they are getting crazier than ever. Here are a few of their latest personality, or whatever you want to call them tests:
“What’s your Patronus?” I know! What? This is referring to Harry Potter, which I love. But, it amuses me to know end that I see grown men who are actually taking the Patronus test and proudly posting their results online, really?
Another one is, “What famous work of art are you,” and “Which Bill Murray character are you?” The most random sh#t I’ve ever seen, but still time and time again I see people boasting about their results like it’s their first dance wedding photo or baby’s sonogram shot. I don’t know why I find this so amusing, and I’m just as guilty as everyone else. But, you know somewhere there is a stoner whose coming up with these cracking himself up. Can people actually be searching for answers in these, or are they just bored, and find them fun? The worst is, if I got an answer I didn’t like, I think I’d genuinely be pissed off. You know something is amiss when you are taking these kind of literally.
If you want to see what all the hype is about, or are as bored as the rest of us, then here you go:
I know, you can’t help yourself, can you?
