the test is stupid tho. the results aren't accurate. i don't drive at all so i had to pick something random on that driving question. i call an easy class an easy class and i don't call throwing rolls of toilet paper over ppl's houses anything. lol nobody has a house here. i know what a cruller is but i don't use that word at all because i don't eat them. chocolate frosted all day. crullers can stay on the shelf.
