Ah, ha ha.

Anyone remember the aptitude tests back in the '80s? (Don't know what they're called now).

Anyway, you got these test booklets with a bunch of bull**** multiple guess questions and an answer sheet. With your #2 pencil you'd black out your choice on this test answer sheet in the appropriate slot (1 through 5 I think) for whatever question, they'd feed this sheet into some lame computer and weeks later you'd get results back telling you where you should focus your job/education ambitions based on a calculation of your various basic aptitudes as measured by this test.

Buddy coloured in his test answer sheet to read "Judist Priest" one year. Laughed my ass off until it turned out his results came back indicating his aptitudes were directing him towards architecture and mechanical engineering design or some such thing.

Me? One year I marked my test answer sheet to look like a pot leaf. Results came back indicating my aptitudes were directing me towards farming & horticulture.

I **** you not. How messed up is that?

I remember having to take Career Planning in high school. It didn't fit into my academic schedule so I was allowed to just do the worksheets at my own pace ... which ended up doing the whole thing the weekend before it was due. For a laugh I filled out all the forms from the view of Super Mario. My goal was to save the princess and my obstacles were king koopa. It ended up being about fifty pages of garbage will 'mushroom', 'pipe', 'my brother Luigi', and 'jump on their head' written in all the blanks. I ended up with an A in the class; although, I still wonder if the teacher even bothered to read it.

Its very true. My spelling is terrible, and I can't write to save my life and I somehow got a degree in Computer Science.
