    • No, it gives actual answers.

          At least four!

            I think you may be overestimating how invested in this I am.

          • Sorry.

          • TheForRealDeal

            No need to be! Sorry if that came off as defensive.

  • Super duper fan

    I knew it! I’m Emma (even though I’m a guy)! She was alwaus better than these other losers.

  • Alkanarra

    I was disappointed in my result, but then I again I would have been disappointed in any of the results.

  • Taako From Teevhii

    I got Andy, but considering that y’all have bad taste in shoes and only included two actual superheroes, I’m not surprised this quiz is off. PRP is skewed; nothing but old news.

    • Alkanarra

      And they didn’t even include Moon Knight in the superhero section! Like… come on!

      • Mike Hirsch

        I mean, as with any quiz, you have to go with your favorite of the available options, but it’s like, Batman for 90% of us, right?

        • Alkanarra

          I felt bad and threw Cap a pity vote. I didn’t feel Warren Buffet needed the help.

          • BadPlayer91

            I went Cap out of legit love and not pity. I mean, Captain America’s storyline 90% of the time is “He did what is right and morale and just, no matter what.” I know Batman’s got that flawed hero things that people love, but like, Captain America is the embodiment of justice. That’s my language right aobut now…

            Also, I’m pretty sure i’d do some Beatles-era scream-fainting if I saw Chris Evans…

          • Assistant Dragon Slayer

            Oooh, the Beatles playing live. That’s another thing I was born after!

          • Alycia Swift

            Not after I was I think but I was very young.

          • EmAndScoutInBK

            Batman doesn’t get my vote because he’s just really rich.

        • Purplerockmatt

          especially if we are the right age for BTAS Batman to be our defining Batman

          • Mike Hirsch

            Not to get all nerdy, but I am not entirely sure how to pick my defining Batman. Reruns of the Adam West Batman served as my initial point of contact, never really got into the comics at a young age (although A Death In The Family and The Killing Joke definitely were on my radar), and then thoroughly enjoyed the first Tim Burton movie (I was 12 when it came out). But I would probably agree that BTAS was what I’d consider to be the *real* Batman.

          • Purplerockmatt

            this is all basically me, except you are a few years older than me. but yeah reruns of adam west, burton and then btas.

          • Is this the point where I bring up that I wasn’t born yet when Batman 89 was released?

          • BadPlayer91

            ME TOO! YAY BABIES!

          • I mean I was born 5 months later, but still.

          • BadPlayer91

            I was about 2 years and 2 months-ish, later…

          • Oh wow, you are a baby!

          • BadPlayer91

            Thank you! I see my youth as a beautiful badge of entitlement, that tells me everything and everyone was made for my enjoyment.

          • purplerockandy

            No.

          • PurpleTally

            Bringing up that you’re younger than The Simpsons REALLY makes people feel old. That’s one of my faves.

          • I mean technically I am younger than the creation of the Simpsons, but I am just a hair older than the actual show.

          • Purple Rock Emma

            I remember when I was an intern people were all in a tizzy because I’m younger (barely) than The Little Mermaid.

          • Violina23

            You mean you didn’t call up your best friend and sync up your VHS tapes and watch The Little Mermaid over the phone from your respective houses? God, you’re young….

          • Purple Rock Emma

            I mean, no, because that’s weird. But also I still had The Little Mermaid on VHS, how young do you think I am?

          • Violina23

            So you had the penis cover art?

          • Purple Rock Emma

            Never looked into it.

          • Taako From Teevhii

            I was born after the OJ Simpson trial and the Internet going public. I think those are my big ones.

          • indescribable hat

            Oh wow. I’ve come to think of myself as one of the babies around here, but I have actual memories of my dad watching that trial.

          • Mike Hirsch

            Apparently so, yes.

          • Surprise millennial privileges !

          • Assistant Dragon Slayer

            Umm… I wasn’t born yet when the TV series premiered.

      • My actual comic book hero choices would’ve been just as C-list as Moon Knight: New Warriors, Darkhawk, Harbinger, or Guardians of the Galaxy (original Vance Astro flavor).

        • purplerockandy

          Pretty hard to imagine why he’s no longer a fan of comics having come up on those legendary titles.

          • I think X-Force might have been my most mainstream choice. I did read X-Men, but it was never my favorite. And fuck DC; I never read any of their stuff.

    • I picked Harry Potter because he was an option.

      • Super duper fan

        High five!

      • Taako From Teevhii

        I would pick Harry Potter or Pikachu for a lot of things but not for superheroes.

        • I overlooked Captain America TBH.

        • Diego Armando

          I pick Pikachu because I have a reputation to maintain, although I would probably pick Green Lantern if given the option.

      • indescribable hat

        Where was Buffy, that’s what I’d like to know.

    • Mike Hirsch

      I picked New Balance because I suppose they are closest to my cherished Brooks.

      • Are you a runner?

        • Mike Hirsch

          I try not to be.

          • Same. At least these days.

          • Assistant Dragon Slayer

            Running shoe question: I’ve been running (if you can call it that) on NB for more than 10 years now. I have slightly caveman feet (a bit wide, a bit thick top to bottom) and Nike, for example, are like torture devices. Is there another brand I should investigate? Neutral stride, forefoot strike.

          • If you have wide feet, NB is almost always going to have the most options because it’s kind of their thing. I always found NB to be bulky and heavy.

            I do get the perception of Nike as torture if you have wider feet, though; they run small in general. I always have to buy a half-size higher in Nike to account for that.

            A guy I was talking to recently was a big fan of his Brooks, and he was a neutral striker too. He’s also a larger, more muscular guy than me (which I recognize is not a high bar).

            If you’re into running on a heavenly cushion, Asics Kayanos are/were my favorite.

      • Diego Armando

        I wear Brooks also, because I have weird feet that shoes don’t like to fit.

        • Mike Hirsch

          Liking because, yeah Brooks, not that you have weird feet.

          • Diego Armando

            I am lucky that I live near a great shoe store that will let me try on about 8 pairs of shoes. One foot is wider than the other and I have narrow heels.

    • Max_Jets

      You just need to open your mind about what a superhero can be.

    • Hornacek

      SAD!

  • Taako From Teevhii

    I also got a question for y’all: is it good or bad if Survivor gets preempted tonight for breaking news about Russia/Flynn/Comey/Trump? It’s bad because the Canadians will probably get to watch it normally and not us, right?

    • I didn’t even want to worry about that.

    • Americans don’t care about political news, nerd. No way Survivor gets interrupted unless OJ kills againfor the first time.

      • corndogshuffle

        OJ could never kill anyone. But I am definitely excited about his upcoming novel “If I Did it Again”.

      • Hornacek

        I hope he gets out of prison soon so he can resume his search for the real killers.

    • Maritimer

      Depends exactly how breaking the news is. If its big enough, Global may pre-empt it was well (but otherwise yes, and we will lord over knowing things HOURS before you do, in a non-spoilery fashion of course)

      • Hornacek

        One of the few times I will be glad that Global simulcasts over CBS.

        • Maritimer

          Possibly the one and only time

          • Hornacek

            But then we wouldn’t get to see ads for Permacrete!

    • gouis

      Trump has ruined enough of my nights. LET ME HAVE MY SURVIVOR WEDNESDAY

    • Violina23

      If he’s being impeached, I’m ok with this. (And I’m a political moderate)

      • I don’t remember the Clinton era extremely well, but I think impeachment takes a little longer than that especially if the Republicans still hold a small majority.

        • Taako From Teevhii

          I remember the Clinton Era not at all, but there’s no way articles of impeachment make breaking news and no way they happen tonight. The build-up would be a slow rumble to the point where rumors don’t qualify for special reports and the articles themselves (once submitted) would be foreseen at least a few days in advance.

  • Mike Hirsch

    I got Matt.

    • Super duper fan

      *Mark

    • Purplerockmatt

      join me in the glory of being a clown

      • Mike Hirsch

        I welcome this.

      • Hornacek

    • turgid_legume

      Me too!

    • HBO CEO of Tits

      Matt as well. I think he’s the live blog guy.

  • Maritimer

    I got Emma but I’m mostly concerned by the fact that none of the options for “male survivor you have a crush on” would even make my top 5

    • I was trying to find Colby, but luckily two of the remaining options are in my top 5.

      • Maritimer

        I looked for Jay, then Spencer, then Malcolm before deciding I should pick one actually on the list and settling on Burton

        • Mike Hirsch

          I also went with Burton, because picking Ken seemed wrong somehow. Like I’d be flying too close to the sun.

        • (whispers) I don’t think Burton is that attractive.

          • GET OUT.

          • Super duper fan
          • Maritimer

            He’s cute (or was, haven’t seen any recent pictures) but I wouldn’t even say he’s the hottest on his season. In sheer looks, both Yul and Jeremy are more attractive but I never really had a crush on either and I kind of did on Burton

          • purplerockandy

            Ultimately what the question is asking is “which of these are closest to your type?”

            And I bet we still didn’t cover the options well.

          • Maritimer

            Well enough, I think. Burton fits the general profile for my type, even if he wouldn’t be my pick

          • Super duper fan
          • Max_Jets

            I was pretty excited to watch Pearl Islands because I had seen pictures and thought he was one of the hottest cast members ever. But then I watched and…I don’t know if it’s the way he talks or his mannerisms, but I was let down.

        • purplerockandy

          Emma and I discussed the flaw that we had no young men as options. But decided it had to be that way.

          • PurpleTally

            I’m just surprised Boston Rob wasn’t an option.

          • purplerockandy

            No one would pick him. Not even me if Ken was a choice.

          • PurpleTally

            That is a very good point.

          • Maritimer

            Fair enough. I’m not criticizing, just judging

  • PurpleTally

    Emma. It’s probably the Cochran thing.
    No shame.

    • PurpleTally

      Cochran overtook my super Canadian answer of KD as my ultimate comfort food.

  • BadPlayer91

    I got John, which I was not expecting. I was expecting Emma.

    Also, here is how I would have answer these questions personally:
    1. Don’t watch enough to know specific episode names
    2. Idk the brand names, but I wear a different pair of shoes almost every day of the week…
    3. Michaela (motherfuckingBAE)
    4. Malcolm
    5. Whiskey & Ginger Ale
    6. Chicken Tenders
    7. Actual superhero: Squirrel Girl; Superhero movie character: Mystique
    8. The Strokes
    9. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
    10. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
    11. Theme Park Owner

    • Squirrel Girl all the way!

    • Purple Rock Emma

      For what it’s worth, none of those movies are any of our actual favorite movies.

      • BadPlayer91

        Interesting…how did those 5 options come about then?

        • Purple Rock Emma

          Well Matt and I have the same favorite movie, so we went with movies we really like that also seem representative of who we are.

          • BadPlayer91

            hmmm. Well, if i’m aiming for a movie that I both enjoy and is representative of me…Mean Girls may actually be perfect. Or Wet Hot American Summer…

          • BadPlayer91

            Also, what is your mutual favorite movie?

          • Purple Rock Emma

            The Princess Bride.

          • Violina23

            I would have definitely chosen that over whatever I chose. (I hadn’t seen High Fidelity, and I thought Pulp Fiction was overrated, but I did see it over 10 yrs after its release and after I saw Kill Bill, so the violence wasn’t shocking)

          • Blurry Denzel

            Pulp Fiction overrated?!!! I’m legit saddened by that comment. Pulp Fiction is the best ever.

          • Violina23

            I think I saw it too late after too many of my friends hyped it.

          • Purplerockmatt

            Also neither Me nor Andy could take Die Hard for the same reasons

          • Mike Hirsch

            My favorite movie is a movie I haven’t yet seen. It was released in 2003. I’ll see it in six years.

    • 1. Treehouse of Horror with “The Shinning”
      2. Asics or flip flops
      3. Julie Berry or Jessie Camacho
      4. Ken or Burton
      5. Various cocktails, including the two options above.
      6. Chicken tikka masala
      7. I honestly don’t know. I haven’t read comics in forever, and I don’t generally watch superhero movies.
      8. Kanye (despite the recent album being garbage) or White Stripes
      9. Something non-fiction, probably. But if we’re going fiction, probably ASOIAF (even though books 4 and 5 felt like a slog).
      10. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
      11. Mogul

      • You don’t know which Treehouse of Horror that is? For shame.

        • I want to say 6, but I always forget there wasn’t one in season 1, so it throws off the numbering.

          • Right logic because it is Treehouse of Horror V (one of my personal faves).

      • BadPlayer91

        So, without Hitchhikers being an option, It was a toss up between Harry Potter or ASOIAF. I just recently finished the latter, and thoroughly enjoyed reading it, but felt like it wouldn’t give me as much joy the second time around, largely because it is such a joyless series. I haven’t watched the show yet, but I have an idea of where things are, but as they stand the books are stuck in this perpetual rut of ‘things get worse’ for about 90% of the characters. After 5 massive books, we have only a rare few instances of satisfaction for the reader ( Daenerys using her dragons to burn the slave masters and maybe Arya killing those guys in the Inn? ). So, i chose Harry Potter. Because, like, those books let me smile occasionally…

        • That’s reasonable. Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings were the other options I strongly considered.

          • BadPlayer91

            GAWD, I don’t know why I didn’t think of LOTR, i’d put that above Harry Potter or ASOIAF. But Hitchhikers still at the top. Every time i read any of those books again, I find more amazing things to laugh at. Douglas Adams is a genius.

          • Violina23

            I made it through LOTR, and found the payoffs very much worth the effort, but it was still a lot of work. I’m in no rush to reread them.

        • Maritimer

          I would agree with that on ASOIF. I enjoyed reading them waiting to see what happens, but I don’t think I could ever go back and slog through them again. I’m not even sure I’ll buy the new books now that its clear the TV show is going to pass them

          • BadPlayer91

            It already has in many regards. I mean, as noted, i haven’t begun it, but you can’t do 6 seasons of people getting shit on and still be on air. I assume a lot of where the show and books deviate is them actually letting the good guys win once or twice….

        • Violina23

          I couldn’t get through more than half of the first GOT book. I switched to the show and liked it a lot better. There were just too many damn characters.

          Harry Potter is amazingly constructed, and gets more sophisticated with each book as the characters naturally get more mature.

          • BadPlayer91

            Lol, if you thought there were too many characters in the first book, you wouldn’t have loved the rest. By the end of the 3rd book, there are so many characters that he decides one book can’t handle all them. The 4th and 5th books are roughly the same time period, but each addresses a different group of characters.

          • Violina23

            So I was trying to read it on a plane next to my husband, who was reading “The Martian” I was annoyed and confused and frustrated trying to keep track of who was who, and he was cracking up laughing. When he finished the Martian, I grabbed it and couldn’t put it down and finished it in 2 days.

            At the risk of losing nerd cred, I think I made the right choice switching to the series.😉

          • BadPlayer91

            Eh, I get that. I mean, i know a lot of people who really like LOTR but can’t make it through the books. While this makes them heretics, I understand. LOTR is a rough series to make through. I mean, the first 40 pages of Two Towers is just Legolas, Aregorn, and Gimli running across Rohan for days and days. But it’s 100% rewarding. It’s just too perfect.

          • I loved The Hobbit and LOTR, so I tried The Silmarillion and was like “Nah, this is too much, I’m out” within the first 50 pages.

          • BadPlayer91

            I have read parts, but never actually held it and sat down. It’s definitely on my to-do list. But yeah, the Silmarillion is like, nth degree nerdom.

            When it comes to books, I have a really hard time not finishing them. Even when I start reading and know i’m bored, i’ll struggle through and finish it, just because I refused to not. Sometimes I wish I had the same mentality about other things, lol.

        • Diego Armando

          I went with ASOIAF, because I read them recently after last season ended.

    • PurpleTally

      1. Lisa on Ice
      2. the orthopedic brand I wear to work retail or Birkenstocks (I’ve got the feet of a 50 year old lesbian)
      3. Andrea, out of the options given, I guess.
      4. Cochran, Fishbach, or Yul
      5. Rum and Coke
      6. Kraft Mac N Cheese (none of that KD bs–this is ‘Merica.)
      7. Batman, probably. I like the old Adam West series.
      8. The Beatles
      9. Harry Potter
      10. Singin’ in the Rain
      11. Teacher or Librarian

      • BadPlayer91

        SINGIN IN THE RAIN IS THE ULTIMATE!

        My boyfriend saw La La Land but hasn’t seen Singin’ in the Rain, and I give him a lot of shit about it. Cause La La Land is 1/2 homage 1/2 recreation of Singin’ in the Rain…

        • You are forgetting about the Umbrellas of Cherbourg in that homage stew.

          • BadPlayer91

            And the Casablanca, and the American in Paris. Homage Stew really is the best way to put it, lol

          • I will just put this here:

          • BadPlayer91

            Gah, it’s so perfect…

        • Max_Jets

          Aww, I love La La Land. I probably prefer it to Singin’ in the Rain even.

          • BadPlayer91

            I have no words…

          • Max_Jets

            I’m sorry! I don’t like Lina Lamont as a character and the dream sequence towards the end really drags. Everything else is great of course, but I have no issues that big with La La Land.

          • PurpleTally

            How dare you not like Lina Lamont! Haven’t you heard, she’s irresistible! She told me so herself!

          • She’s got more money than Calvin Coolidge put together!

          • BadPlayer91

            <3

          • You don’t like Lina Lamont?

          • BadPlayer91

            I mean, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Though not liking Lina Lamont (who, you aren’t really supposed to like? I mean, she’s the closest thing to the villain…) seems an odd hangup, lol.

          • Max_Jets

            She’s very funny, I just don’t like the way she’s written, if that makes sense. I’m fine with her being a villain but I wish she was a bit more…complex. It feels like we’re presented with the “good” woman and the “bad” woman. I like when the antagonists have a bit more to them. I have the same problem with a lot of Disney movies too, so it might just be the way I watch things.

          • I love the way they deliberately hide her voice for the first ten minutes. It is extremely clever and makes for a fun rewatch.

          • BadPlayer91

            I wrote out this big stupid huge responses, but it was definitely going to be too long a conversation, lol

          • Max_Jets

            Hahaha, I probably wouldn’t have much more to add because I’m sure you know the movie a lot better than I do. I meant to post to support La La Land more than I did to shit on Singin’ in the Rain, but I just ended up sounding really negative.

            Singin’ in the Rain is my all-time favorite movie, and LaLa Land is great too.

          • BadPlayer91

            nah, you’re fine. I just realized i’m probably not likely to change your opinion, and I could easily write 1,000 words that no one wants to read, so it seemed a better option to just agree to disagree. Plus, i’ve got film history on my side, so…

          • Max_Jets

            We’ll close with 4 of the most delightful minutes ever recorded.

          • Roswulf

            You have supplanted Debbie as history’s greatest monster. Lina Lamont is perfect.

            (But the dream ballet does drag)

      • StormofCuteness

        Whoa, we are very close to twinsies. It’s almost spooky. I too have the feet of a 50 year old bisexual though…because I am actually a 50 yr old bisexual. Heh.

    • 1. I came up with a top five a few years ago during the first Every Simpsons Ever Marathon which was Treehouse of Horror V, Marge vs The Monorail, I Love Lisa, Cape Feare, and Who Shot Mr.Burns?. I would probably knock off Who Shot Mr. Burns and go with A Fish Called Selma. Anyway, my new favorite episode is I Love Lisa.
      2. Ballet flats/sandals

      10. Yeah, its Mean Girls
      11. Really, its professional political operative but those are barely a thing in Canada. Or a trust fund baby

      • BadPlayer91

        mmmm, Rye and Ginger is also delicious.

    • I’m glad you exceeded the low expectations you had for yourself.

      1. ? I used to watch The Simpsons all the time as a kid, but I don’t know episode titles and I probably wouldn’t have the same favorites today.
      2. I don’t remember what kind of shoes I have right now, but Sketchers works here.

      2. I have to wear sneakers all the time for works, but TUK/Demonia/Hot Chocolate type brands
      3. Cydney
      4. Yul is awesome, and I still adore Erik (I think Cochran’s condescension towards his occupation made me like him more), and, I mean, Malcolm this season was wonderful.
      5. Fruit Tingle
      6. I don’t think I have a savoury comfort food
      7. Batcow
      8. Australian bands no-one here has heard of, The Wombats/Modern Baseball/pre-hiatus Fall Out Boy

      11. I’d still be a dog-walker/pet sitter, but I’d be earning so much more money.

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        Who hasn’t heard of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard?

        • BadPlayer91

          They have been all over the music sites I frequent, but i’ve only heard their music in passing…

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            They are fantastic! Start with the album “Nonagon Infinity”.

          • BadPlayer91

            What genre would you say they are? I read a review of their latest which said they were getting more metal, which put me off them a bit, as I have to be in a very particular mood (or still in high school) to be into metal…

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            They’re more psychadelic than metal. I wouldn’t call them metal at all.

          • BadPlayer91

            Ah, that sounds perfect. Anything psychadelic is my cup of tea.

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            Nonagon Infinity is designed so that the album can be played in a single uninterrupted loop.

          • BadPlayer91

            That’s cool. The Bosnian Rainbows album is similar, in that it starts and ends with the same sort of sound. Thus when you are listening to it on repeat it seems to seamlessly start playing again. I think the first Cheatahs album is the same.

        • Something Quirky

          Wait, have you mentioned them before? I had deja vu.

          They were playing at a festival I was at, and it was the first time I was seeing them live, and we were betting on how many songs they could fit into a set. The answer was 6.

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            6? Did they play for two hours?

          • Something Quirky

            At times it certainly felt like it =p

            But it was only an hour, possibly an hour and fifteen minutes.

            (I do like them, but I discovered I prefer them on the radio to live.)

      • Purple Rock Emma

        Summer of 4’2″ was my backup answer!

      • BadPlayer91

        What falls under “Australian bands no-one here has heard of”? I’m interested both to 1) see if I know any of them and 2) get some new bands to explore. What genre?

        • Something Quirky

          (I do know that Flume, Tame Impala, and Courtney Barnett are relatively well known now.)

          What genres are you interested in?

          My favourite band is Sugar Army, with The Love Junkies close behind. They’re both “rock”, but sound completely different. (I just queried Hector, and he says SA are like a poppier Jesus and Mary Chain, and TLJ are similar to post-hardcore.) Also Harlequin League (though they haven’t been active for a while.)

          Alex Lahey (singer-songwriter) is wonderful.

          Also, Megan Washington (sometimes just known as “Washington”.). I believe she once did a cover of The Simpsons’ Theme.

          Gang of Youths basically sound like The National.

          The Smith Street Band are kind of like The Gaslight Anthem.

          City Calm Down are like 80’s electro with aspects of goth.

          Violet Soho are super popular. They’re just straight up rock.

          There’s Birds of Tokyo if you like something more mellow.

          Timothy Nelson/ Timothy Nelson and the Infidels/ High Horse are decent indie rock.

          Hilltop Hoods are the best of white Australian rap.

          Big Scary is low-tempo indie rock.

          I may come back with more =p

        • Something Quirky

          SAFIA if you like electronic/indie. ‘Counting Sheep’ is a great song.

        • Something Quirky

          Pendulum!

          (I’m not a big DnB fan, but I really like Pendulum.)

          (Also, sorry I’m not editing this all in the one comment; I’m acessing your post through my email notifications because I haven’t seen the episode yet, and it won’t show me my reply.)

    • Neutral Username

      1. Don’t know the show that well, but let’s say ‘Lisa’s Rival’ because if I think of a Simpsons’ quote I think of “What’s a diorama?”

    • Mike Hirsch

      America’s sweetheart.

  • Max_Jets

    How can we be expected to choose between 3 of the greatest movies of all time and High Fidelity?

    • I like High Fidelity.

      • Max_Jets

        I’ve never actually seen it, but I felt I should specify what the other movie was.

        • BadPlayer91

          At first glance I saw Jack Black and what looked like a video rental store and just assumed it was Be Kind Rewind.

      • Violina23

        I’ve…. Never seen it

    • PurpleTally

      I like the Broadway musical version of High Fidelity.

      • Roswulf

        Upvoted primarily out of surprise.

    • DrVanNostrand

      Almost everyone I know loves that garbage movie.

  • Saturday Night Palsy

    I got Matt. Who in the hell is Matt?

    • gouis

      My arch rival.

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        Who apparently has a thing for Jeremy Collins.

        • Purple Rock Emma

          Nope!

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            Right! Who would pick Jeremy immediately with no time for second thoughts!

      • Purplerockmatt

        oh you definitely got me

  • corndogshuffle

    Woo, I got Mark!

    • Sylvisual

      I’m not alone!

    • indescribable hat

      Me too!

      • indescribable hat

        And I got Mark again with my alternate answers…

  • Blurry Denzel

    I got Emma, which was the only acceptable answer. Now to wait for the which PRP commenter are you quiz so I can get Barbara Anderson.

    • Super duper fan

      People who got Emma = awesome people
      People who got others = mostly not awesome people

    • I honestly hope that this is the next quiz, but I haven’t been asked about it yet.

      • Maritimer

        Question 1: How many spell books do you own?

        • Question 2: Which season is the most overrated?

          • DrVanNostrand

            Nicaragua. If anyone on the planet rates it above 0, it is mathematically impossible to be more overrated.

          • Alycia Swift

            So far we could say that about this one.

          • DrVanNostrand

            No way. This season doesn’t even crack bottom 5.

          • HBO CEO of Tits

            Winter

      • Blurry Denzel

        Me either. Just waiting to give my answers.

        • Your quiz would be Do you like making lists? Do you love Palau?

        • purplerockandy

          The issue is that apparently you’re all Emma. So another quiz would be redundant.

          • BadPlayer91

            I’m not! I’m John!

            Considering that I was the one who kept bugging John about statistics for the pick 4 pre-season, this is now making a little more sense!

          • I’ll be doing a deep fantasy league stats dive this off season with the help of another commenter here. It may result in some changes to scoring to make it as balanced as possible.

          • BadPlayer91

            Is this related to when you asked for help scoring past seasons for comparison? I wanted to help with that SOO bad, but i’m not yet a completionist, so i couldn’t…

          • It is related to that, yes.

          • BadPlayer91

            Intrigue!!!

          • Taako From Teevhii

            Publicly available fantasy stats!?! Drats! My market inefficiency is ruined!

          • It is, especially because I’ll likely keep the results of my investigation confined to the people doing the research- gotta try to win my way back into Champions League.

          • I have publicized my method and no one has taken me up on it

          • Sorry, but googling The BJ Method did not help me with picking for fantasy Survivor.

          • Not that method.

          • BadPlayer91

            Intrigue!

          • I can’t help that I love Harry Potter.

          • Alycia Swift

            That was the only option but I do note there was no female choice.

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        I hope they just troll everyone and all the answers are Saturday Night Palsy.

        • “If you had your druthers, who would you pick from Worlds Apart as your fantasy league pick?”

          • Alycia Swift

            How many? Mike, Hali and Shireen

  • Other Scott

    I got Andy, which surprised me about 0%.

    Sorry I haven’t been commenting much I really haven’t been enjoying this season lately and haven’t found much to comment on.

    • Fair enough!

    • purplerockandy

      Same

      • Other Scott

        Fitting

        • Alycia Swift

          Same but also bc of work.

  • Assistant Dragon Slayer

    I got Andy the first time, got Andy again with my “had to think about it for a second” answers, then got Emma with my Costanza answers.

    Seems legit.

    • purplerockandy

      Emma is what I get with my backup choices. Which tracks really well.

    • Mike Hirsch

      I also got Emma with my alternate coin-flip answers. Apparently we are all Emma.

      • purplerockandy

        She is very basic.

        • Purple Rock Emma

          Don’t be jealous.

        • Kemper Boyd

          Emma is the universal baseline of Survivor fans. We are all somewhat Emma.

          • purplerockandy

            Emma was very much the “no whammies!” pick here.

    • PurpleTally

      I did it a few times, and it was always Emma.

  • Ms_Woozah

    To absolutely no one’s surprise, I am Emma. The only one here with real taste.

    • Does that mean that everybody in the Praying Mantis Crew got Emma? I mean, it makes sense, but it is kinda funny at the same time.

      • Ms_Woozah

        Hell yeah!

        • We also known for killing men, right? I am not an agriculture major anymore.

    • purplerockandy

      Ironic, given that when it comes to literal taste, she abhors it.

  • Mike Hirsch

    I’m debating over what my actual favorite Simpsons episode would be, and Lemon of Troy, You Only Move Twice, and Homer The Vigilante all are hovering near the top.

    • Alkanarra

      Lemon of Troy and YOMT would absolutely be in my top five. My #1 is probably Lisa the Vegetarian.

      • Mike Hirsch

        You don’t win friends with salad.

        I feel like anyone could make a case for just about any episode from seasons 3-8 and I’d respect that choice.

        • Violina23

          It’s just a little airborne, it’s still good, it’s still good!

    • Violina23

      Wait, there’s a lemon behind that rock!

    • Purplerockmatt

      I almost put You Only Move Twice. I basically told Emma to pick either that or Homie the Clown (Last Exit is probably my 3rd)

    Apparently it’s not sexist, as I am Mark.

    Or there is something one of us is hiding.

    I got a rock.

    • Violina23

      Good old rock, nothing beats that!

    • Kemper Boyd

      was it black or white?

  • the sky is falling

    I got Emma. Is that only because I chose Cochran? Does a Cohran answer automatically make you an Emma?

    • BadPlayer91

      Maybe

    • I think if you answer Harry Potter to either of the applicable question, then you automatically get Emma. I picked Ken and still got Emma.

      • purplerockandy

        We’re not gonna give away the code, but there are no “automatics”. For each answer, we can assign point values of 2, 1, or 0 for potential answers.

        Y’all are just some basic-ass Emmas.

        • Oh…you just blew my mind. Quizzes can be just complicated?

          • purplerockandy

            It’s a science.

            Which is unfortunate since we’re horrible scientists.

      • Alycia Swift

        Me 2.

      • prettyboyprobst

        No Cochran, no Harry Potter, fries and beer and I still got Emma. That doesn’t seem right!

        I saw potential matches in Yul, Parv and french fries in her comment further down though, maybe that was enough to make me a basic-ass Emma. Although Andy’s explanation below makes it sound as if gave too many wrong answers to get somebody more special.

  • Diego Armando

    I got Mark. Honestly the Simpsons question was the only one I had a definite answer to (Marge vs. the Monorail hands down).

    • Sylvisual

      That second sentence almost negates the result.

      • DrVanNostrand

        Homer at the Bat?

        • Sylvisual

          Nah, having any favorite Simpsons episode loses you Mark points.

          • DrVanNostrand

            It must’ve been our mutual love of Yul?

          • Something Quirky

            Then I am also not a true Mark.

  • Ms. Sweaterfan

    I got Matt 😀
    Oh man I spent so long on the girl/boy crush questions (and not just because I was hypnotized by Alexis’ twerking…but kind of because of that). I couldn’t decide how to define “crush” for myself – is it purely someone I find hot? Someone whose personality/mind I’m attracted to? Someone with a combo of both factors? I thought long and hard about those deep existential questions and then chose Morgan because she has the best boobs. Seriously – probably the best looking woman to ever play Survivor, with the garbage-est personality.
    Guy crush was still difficult but at least easier – Yul has the best combo of bod and mind. The only problem there is that he’s obviously way too good for me.

    • Crush was probably not the right way to phrase that question, given the choices.

    • Blurry Denzel

      For crushes I went with who I think I would be most compatible with rather than hottest, though my choices of Aubry and Jeremy also happen to be very attractive.

      • StormofCuteness

        Twinsies! Those were also my two choices. Were you also an Emma?

        • Blurry Denzel

          I’m such an Emma.

      • Alycia Swift

        The only female I’d be compatible with on that list is Aubrey. Guys – probably Cochran but crush is Ken.

      True story: John and I have had a long conversation on how we completely screwed up that question as a staff. What we were originally go for was “what do you find most attractive”. Then we decided to put a Survivor spin on it. Then we decided to not make it too crude, but we still wanted to preserve our answers and how they paired with each of us. Which lead to a question that probably isn’t asking the right thing. Or answers that aren’t aligned to what we were trying to achieve.

      Also, you can stay.

    • Purplerockmatt

      and that paragraph is why you got Matt

    • DrVanNostrand

      That question wasn’t even hard. Aubry and Yul. Next question.

  • Roswulf

    I got Andy, and am filled with an irresistable urge to explain why the test is completely wrong, which of course means that the test is completely right.

      When you come back to complain about this again in a week, then the results will be confirmed.

      • Assistant Dragon Slayer

        He’ll be right on his fourth try.

      • Kingoftonga

        But what do the denizens of r/whichpurplerockstafferareyou have to say about it, and why are they wrong?

        (I kid. I’m an Andy too)

    • Carrots

      After taking the test seven times, I have the same urge.

      For the record, I got: Andy, Andy, Andy, Mark, Mark, Andy, Andy.

      • purplerockandy

        I’m properly insulted that Mark was ever that close to me. I chose to believe you got him by going completely opposite from your regular, obviously VERY COOL choices.

  • DrVanNostrand

    I got Mark! Or was it Matt? (Not even my joke, it was in the quiz!)

  • Tiago

    I got Emma, yess!!

  • True Alainer

    You’re Emma!

  • StormofCuteness

    I am also an Emma which is awesome!

  • Prom King

    John. I guess this is a good thing?

    • It’s an unexpected thing, since the odds are highly stacked against anyone getting me. So congrats on beating the odds!

      • Prom King

        Clearly we are both rare creatures who should be lauded for our originality and unique qualities!

  • Crappy

    i got Matt!

    • purplerockandy

      Never has a user name and a post been better aligned.

  • MsFjordstone

    I’m an Emma!

  • Alycia Swift

    I just got around to posting. I’m am Emma as well. I will say my dream job is not an attorney. It was once.

  • Alycia Swift

    How many Emma’s are there?

    • Most people that take the quiz. She’s the most likely result.
