A Heretofore Unexamined Life

You scored as Friedrich Nietzsche. Well you're an egotistical maniac, and you are so very iconoclastic that you probably are currently lost in a post-modern Jupiter, I mean jungle of self-definition.

Don't let it get you down though, someday, through a willful onslaught of reinterpretation of dated forms and ideas, you will strike on something that passes as remotely new, and people WILL be into it on the basis of how hip it is alone. Also, the average espresso drinker looks up to you.

'Also, the average espresso drinker looks up to you.'

You, my dear, are of the uber cool set. ;)

Ah, thank you. You're among the verrrry few who think so!

Ha! That espresso bit is the crowning gem indeed. I virtually never do these silly things, but youve inspired me:

You scored as Dante Alighieri. According to you most of humanity will spend at least some of their afterlife in hell. You have a high likelihood of being exiled, but anyone as bloody fucking romantic as you deserves what they get. You have an exceptional moral code, overshadowed by the fact that you yourself cannot uphold it.

Your existence bears a definite irony, although of fairly Christian morality, many pagans, satanists, communists, and intellectuals admire you and your works for all the wrong reasons.

Also, the brighest star in your sky is never going to be your lover...

It takes a lot of grief to be the cartographer of hell.

In college my philosophy professor said that Nietzsche was always included in his course "for comic relief." He meant to be enigmatic, and indeed that statement was. Neverless I was drawn to Nietzsche, and even to his sister, Elizabeth. She said, famously: "The fleetest beast to carry you to perfection is suffering."


She said, famously: "The fleetest beast to carry you to perfection is suffering."

That is brilliant! In thinking about it, however, I find that it may be better realized for me like this:

"The fleetest beast to carry you to suffering is the pursuit of perfection."

I also scored Nietzsche...but I also live in Seattle, which is filled with average espresso drinkers, whether they look up to me or not. :b

Hmmm. In Seattle, I hear, looking up can get you a snout full of rainwater!

Hi,
I've seen you added me. I'm not posting much these days, but I'll add you back :-)
