If you’ve got a few minutes to spare, take thespark.com’s Purity Test. This little gem has been around the ‘net for years. Apparently it was revived last night in blogIRC. I didn’t arrive until much later, so I missed most of the fun. I did score a 32% on the test recently. That means I’m less pure than 95% of the over 8 million people that have taken the test already. Compared to the bloggers in blogIRC last night, though, I am really bottom-of-the-barrel. Of course, I’m still not as bad as Joe.
