I have no idea what this means.

On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 9 and 12.

In other words, even if you're part of the new upper class, you've had a lot of exposure to the rest of America.

I got the same score. It means little to nothing. Unlike most other countries, America is not so much about where you've been, or who you got born to. America is about where you are going. I'm traveling along in the Objectivist lane of the Libertarian road. We are not going (intentionally at least) to the trendy Left/Right (Dem/Rep) end of America destination.

"you scored between 9 and 12"
....so if I would have watched an Oprah show all the way through, would I have gotten a higher score? :?

I do like to watch some of the old Donahue shows though :oops: Ayn Rand is thought provoking http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bx-LpRSbbeA

9 to 12. I think this is one of those jokes about how to keep a turkey in suspense. Or others along the same line.

Same here tsb. Between 13-16.

I would think that anyone that scored a 20 wouldn't be on this forum at all. It would be completely against their principles. Just the mention of coal would send them into an angry frenzy. :lol:

The only reason I scored that high, I believe, is due to where I live. I don't know anyone religious (I assume that brings the score lower) ....

It means your nickname should be Bubba, and you have an equally-good understanding of those who attend wine-and-cheese parties and those who burn trash in a backyard barrel. :P
