|01:18 am - How old am I ?|
Somewhere (probably on LJ), I saw a link to a "RealAge" test, which supposedly works out your "true" age after asking you a bunch of questions about your health and lifestyle.
The content of the test, though, is something like this :
Tell us about your height, weight, blood pressure, age.
By the way, would you like us to
spam you send you information about our products ?
Ok, now tell us about your medical history.
Sure you don't want us to spam you ? Just a little bit ?
Now a bit about lifestyle, transport use, drug/alcohol/tobacco use.
Please ? You'll barely notice the spam ?
Ok, nevermind. So, tell us about your diet.
Pretty please ? With sugar on top ?
Ok, moving right along. Here are your results ! Yay ! You're young.
Very well then. No spam.
Hey, want to send us lots of money for our medical advice ?
Hey, want to send us lots of money for our nutrition advice ?
Hey, want to send us lots of money for our exercise advice ?
... and so on. Oh well, I'm sure lots of people will sign up for it, and good luck to them (and their mail filters).
