Road Noise: The Allure of the Radio Button (Not That Kind)

Here at VehicleVoice World Internet Headquarters and Day-Old Seafood Buffet, we divide our copious free time among three things:
1) Chair dancing and lip-synching to “Don’t Stop Believing” in an effort to boost industry morale.
2) Impromptu salons, during which we discuss philosophy, world affairs and whether Iron Man was better than The Dark Knight. (Yes.)
3) The Internet. The sweet, sweet, life-giving Internet.


The quiz is one of the Internet’s primo timesinks. Within a few minutes, I can find out what kind of herb or spice I am (sage), which Hogwarts house I would be sorted into (Syltherin) and what type of a geek, dork or nerd I am (modern, cool nerd). And hey, some of the quizzes out there are about cars!

This is the kind of test that’s relatively easy to game. Everyone wants to have an enviable result to post on their blogs or MySpaces or what-have-yous, and it’s pretty obvious that when the MPG quiz asks if you have asthma, the more efficient answer is “no.” I got this quiz off a friend who claimed “motorcycle” personal MPG; it must be nice to run a marathon a week and go days at a time without eating. And when I answered as the stereotypical, mother’s-basement-dwelling computer geek, I found it’s possible to get a score of “semi-truck.” That’s sad is what that is.

I’m a Mazda RX-8!

You’re sporty, yet practical, and you have a style of your own. You like to have fun, and you like to bring friends along for the ride, but when it comes time for everyday chores, you’re willing to do your part.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

I took the sports car quiz more than once, varying my answers each time, and it keeps giving me the same answer. Maybe it’s time to embrace my inner Mazda? I don’t know if we can trust a quiz that mixes supercars and sports cars on the same list, though.
I’m a station wagon? A minute ago I was an RX-8!

Oooh, this one’s all Europey! But it says I’m a Volvo estate (They have a different word for “wagon!” That’s so cultured!), not an Aston Martin, so I’m not speaking to this quiz anymore.

What Type of Car Would You Be?

You are a Mini Cooper. Everywhere you go, you turn heads with your charm and charisma. You’re no deep thinker, but taking life seriously can be such a drag!

That’s more like it! Minis are stylish, practical and…hey, what did it say about me? “No deep thinker?” That’s it, I’m starting to suspect that these quizzes aren’t the hard science I thought they were.
