    ((Thanks for the post.  Very fun quizz.  I ran it twice – once for the man and once for the woman [I won’t tell you which one I scored higher on]. It is worth getting a few wrong just to see the animations))

    WHAT A STUPID GAME! Everyone got all upset all the time! stupid stupid stupid!



    ((500 points and i played it as i would respond. Born in the wrong time my boys, born in the wrong time.))

    I was a better victorian man than victorian woman…apparently I was born in the wrong gender.

    ((::coughs:: Perfect score as a man at home, one faux pas as a lady at home. Two mistakes as a man at the ball, none as a lady. Man, perfect score on the train, one mistake as a lady. No mistakes in the gentleman’s club, two mistakes in the park. I have nooo clue what this says about me. ::now goes to get them all wrong to see what happens in the animations::))

      What happens in the animations if you answer wrong?  A couple of my tags will give you clues. *grin*

        The winged assault cherubs in the train station were my favorite.

    It might be fun to write one of these based on New Babbage etiquette.  Imagine…  

    Category: Grand Openings

    Question: If you are at the Grand opening of a new establishment and an unidentified, somewhat sinister looking inter-dimensional alien appears… do you:

    a) pull out your Tesla Coil Steam Generated Power Blaster to blow him/her/it to smithereens;

    b) ignore him/her/it

    c) ask /him/her/it to dance

      C! You can suss their motives and have fun at the same time.

    Fun! …Though mildly worrisome if a woman travelling. All the correct answers go against modern safety tips. 0_o

      Exactly.  “Here strange man, carry my luggage!”

    400 points, i messed up at the fancy ball dancing thingy…

    …this is why all dancy thingys in babbage should have a BAR!  So folks like me can sit at the bar and simply get drunk…

  8. Zaida Gearbox Zaida Gearbox March 17, 2011

    Imma perfect little lady.  What?  I am!  Jimmy an’ Bob!  Stop laughing!

  9. Jedburgh30 Dagger Jedburgh30 Dagger March 17, 2011

    The bathroom on the train cost me my perfect score.  I was perfect on the man side.

    *makes note to add a bar for Victor ..

    Hugss for  Book this was  clever :)

  11. Holocluck Henly Holocluck Henly March 18, 2011

    I was the picture of politeness.

    Little do they know I’m afraid of heights

    I went to the men’s club in fancy dress. That didn’t go over well.

    Yes, the bathroom on the train tripped me up too. I also managed to misread the question that involved the meeting at the crossroads in the park. I never knew that ladies shook hands back then. I was always taught that that was considered masculine. Of course most of my education about such matters was thoroughly warped.

    The bathroom on the train messed me up too.  461 as a woman, 500 as a man.  “Boing boing boing…nu nu…hffevva”

    • Jedburgh30 Dagger Jedburgh30 Dagger March 21, 2011

      I feel better since apparently all my friends had the same problem…


      • Tesla Tripsa Tesla Tripsa March 21, 2011

        Yes, we have bathroom problems.
