Fang Talks

Löve the D

I sadly only got five entries to work with, but I’ll take ’em nonetheless.

Yesterday I asked you all to rate your life on a scale of 1 to 10. The results came in, and on average the people who follow my blog (and actually comment) give life a pretty nice 7. That’s pretty good, right? There was a really low one, a 4, but also a couple of high ones, highest being a 8.8.

So what have we learned from that? Well, not a whole lot, since there wasn’t exactly a flood of participants, but Terra Shield had a pretty interesting comment:
“Life (in my own bubble) is 7/10. If we include all the world’s problems then it’s perhaps 4.5/10.”

When looking at her own life and the stuff directly around her, she gives life a 7. However, when she takes the rest of the world into account, that turns into a 4.5, dropping 2.5 points! This may be a bit of an indicator for how bad a situation the world is in, and how fucked up society is. And who knows, one day those numbers may come closer together, be it for the worse or the better.

If you’re wishing to view others’ ratings, the comments on yesterday’s post have now been published. As for the lazy idiot (Jay) who said “you first”, I’d rate life, right now, 6.8/10. Transitional periods are never fun, but I’ve still got a bit of time to live in the now.

Enjoy the last day of your weekend,
~ Fang

    I agree with Shaw.

    I bet if you polled the world the average would be lower.

    If we can only encounter each other rather than stay with each other,then I wish we had never encountered Russia Euro 2012 Jersey

    Of course Mark’s would be the lowest.

    I guess people just weren’t comfortable rating their life though you could always conduct it on Twitter to see if your followers there could add more input into the experiment?

    Wooo I was the lowest. The happiest people are often the ones who don’t take in to account the things around them, and get lost in their own little world. As bad as it may sound, the world would be a better place if more people took stock and factored in the worlds problems. Most people have an attitude of “If it doesn’t affect me, it doesn’t affect me.”
