Hello, I Must Be Going

I just stumbled across something called the Cook-Medley hostility scale (Ho). It's a subset of the standard MMPI personality test. The Ho scale measures things like Cynicism, Hostile Attributions, Hostile Aspect, Aggressive Responding, Social Avoidance, and other personality traits, and uses them to predict "health outcomes". In other words, the higher you fall on the Ho scale, the sooner you can expect to die.

I did some serious soul-searching, and estimated my score on the Ho scale. If my calculations are correct - and bear in mind I'm very good with numbers, writing all those speeding tickets and everything - my Ho says I'll be dead in about 20 minutes.

On any given day, I might have passed away a week or so ago....

Tell me you didn't waste that 20 minutes tell me you wrote at least one more ticket.

OMG...I cannot stop giggling at the name...the "HO" scale? Really? I love it.

Oh, wait...you may not see this if you're dead.

Still funny as shit, though.
