If you look at the animation after the link and see a girl spinning clockwise, then you are a ‘right-brain thinker’ (creative). If you see a girl spinning counter-clockwise, then you are a ‘left-brain thinker’ (logical). If all you see is a set of boobies, then you are ‘male, likely between the age of 13 and 65′.

You’ll probably run face first in to a massive spider web, become entangled, and then get devoured alive by mutant spiders.

Rule 1) no labor is allowed (this includes shaving and bathing), Rule 2) pants are forbidden, and Rule 3) the television must remain on at all times.
