I do pray that this is not "off-topic," but if you ABSOLUTELY feel the need to delete it, go ahead.
This is a completely optional survey, and if you don't want to answer a certain question, then by all means, don't. I just wanted to do this so we could all see the different types of people we have here.

You can either post your answers in a comment, or just email/AIM me with them if you don't feel like commenting. I'd really appreciate it if everyone could do this; call it a scientific survey, if you will. But I think it should be interesting, nonetheless. Please and thanks!
