I’ve been seeing a lot of people on Facebook recently taking that BuzzFeed quiz about what town they are supposed to most belong in. As much fun as wasting time like that can be, I never saw much point to it. After all, I’m betting where most people live in is a matter of circumstance as opposed to where they most ideologically or whatever fit. However, a new quiz I’ve been seeing seems even more pointless.
What decade do you most belong in. (Note, I’m not bothering to look up the exact names of these quizzes. I’m paraphrasing.)
After all, if someone really decided BuzzFeed knew better than them what city they should live in (ignoring where they know people, where they own homes, where they can find jobs, and all that other sort of thing), they could move. They could move if they really wanted to live where BuzzFeed suggested they’d be best suited. However, unless someone knows something I don’t, I think they’re stuck on the decade thing.
Portland is the city where you’d be most suited to live? Great. You can move there. THe sixties were the decade for you? That sucks, given that it’s 2014.
I know these are just supposed to be fun quizzes, but still. They all seem pointless to me and I haven’t taken any of them. I just think the decade one is even more pointless than most.
