I'm dragging this post over here rather than the Feminism thread, where I originally posted it, since the link is only maybe ~30% relevant to feminism

http://www.reddit.com/r/StormfrontorSJW/
they take quotes, censor out a few words, and then have you guess whether it's Stormfront or tumblr (SJW)


I've gotten a few wrong, gotten a few right

usually there's an obvious tell

for example, a 'social justice' warrior isn't likely to use ableist language, but stormfront/metapedia might, or other times the give-away is that stormfront-media is usually more coherent than tumblr in terms of English mechanics (haha, literal grammar nazis!), or the OP leaves behind something like "{...} appropriation" and lets the guesser fill in the blank with "cultural" to determine that it's a tumblrSJW -- but sometimes that's a trap!

it's pretty entertaining to try to guess

This is too polite to be a SJW. I'm going with Stormfront.

suspecting SJW because they like to hate on bronies, and I don't see the connection to stormfront. Red pillers, maybe

Gotta go with SJW, I can't see stormfront complaining about shit their ancestors did

That, and there's an obvious typo in it.

SO um I posted this in the wrong thread yesterday:

If you refresh it, it gives you 10 new ones: http://guesstheirage.co.uk/ I tried 3 times, got a 55, 55 , and 67. A lot I had no clue for, but guessed on how much older/younger than me I thought they were.

I just tried it and got a 66, which means I was off by an average of 3.4 years. That seems pretty good for guessing ages, to me.

I was wondering how recent the photos are. In the first two, I was trying to guess how old there were in the picture. I think it scores based on their current age.

I had 2 repeats the third time. One was the same photo of Luke Wilson, the other was a different photo of the same person (I think it was Natalie Portman)

Got 73. I missed one because I don't know who Jonathan Rhys Meyers is so I basically put him in the young actors camp and got only 1 point.

This is my favorite thing on Tumblr.

http://medievalpoc.tumblr.com/

Lots of pictures, articles and posts about black people living in medieval Europe. I feel ridiculous because my education about history really fed the impression that black people couldn't be found outside of Africa until the Atlantic Slave Trade happened. But thankfully this is the antidote to that.

If you go here you can see what google thinks of you. Mine ranged from 'creepily accurate' to 'so far out of left field it's concerning' so your mileage may vary. Entertaining though.

Haven't seen that page in a while! Not since the last time The Goog bungled up privacy settings on one of their services. Let's see what they think of me now.


Google thinks I'm bilingual (ha! fooled them, I guess! ?) and interested in ... advertising and marketing? Nope. X'd that one.
Now my primary interest seems to be "Biographies and quotations," since they arrange those things in alphabetical order.
