Me according to Emode

Took a couple of Braintests for fun :)
Well, they just confirm my schizophrenic tendencies.


The Brain Test

Soloflite, you are Balanced-brained

That means you are able to draw on the strengths of both the right and left hemispheres of your brain, depending upon a given situation.

When you need to explain a complicated process to someone, or plan a detailed vacation, the left hemisphere of your brain, which is responsible for your ability to solve problems logically, might kick in. But if you were critiquing an art opening or coming up with an original way to file papers, the right side of your brain, which is responsible for noticing subtle details in things, might take over.

While many people have clearly dominant left- or right-brained tendencies, you are able to draw on skills from both hemispheres of your brain. This rare combination makes you a very creative and flexible thinker.

The down side to being balanced-brained is that you may sometimes feel paralyzed by indecision when the two hemispheres of your brain are competing to solve a problem in their own unique ways.


The Brain Teaser Test

SoloFlite, you answered 29 out of 30 questions correctly!

Congratulations! Your score is in the 99th percentile. This means that if one hundred people took the test with you, your score would rank higher than 98 of them on average.

When we analyzed your test, we also discovered that when it comes to visual-spatial ability, you measure in the 100th percentile. This score indicates you have unusually strong abilities when it comes to spotting patterns in the world around you. You're easily able to envision things spatially in different positions, and this allows you to determine what spatial patterns are present. Compared with you, most others lack the creative ability and/or skill to imagine the movement of objects or patterns in time and space.


Okaaay... So first they say my left and right brain have an ongoing battle for supremacy... constantly forcing myself to choose between which one to follow.

The second test says im partially delusional. Just great.

The Dark Angel

Gender: Male
Origin: Greek, Latin
Meaning: Dark, Rich

Gender: Male
Origin: Greek
Meaning: Angelic

check your name's meaning at:


While other kids were named after the archangels, Michael, Rafael and Ariel, i was The Dark Angel...
It was such a cool, cool nick.. Dark Angel.
...i actually used it as a pseudonym, a chat nickname, an email add, a call sign for multiplayer games...
Yeah, Lucifer (the lightbringer) could have been cooler, but i doubt any priest would have baptized me...

I used to like thinking of myself as the dark angel when i was younger
You know, the same kind of pride a little kid would get if he were called Wolverine, Batman or Superman?

Well, that was before James Cameron's series... which changed everything...
you know, the same effect of calling that same little kid... kim possible or buttercup?

I hated the concept so much i didnt even see the show and dropped the nick altogether...

... until i took a closer look at it realized how hot Jessica Alba was :)
Daa... aaammmnnnnnnn...
Suddenly i bought the whole series on DVD and found myself fast becoming her biggest fan

Cute, Sexy, plus her kick-ass, sarcastically witty character in Dark angel...
...she's definitely my long lost soulmate...

Call it providence, destiny, or some weird astrological occurence...
but for me i think there's a connection...
...i mean, how many other Adrian Angelo's are there? :)


oh yeah, btw- this blog post has nothing to do with the unfortunate accident that will befall that bastard she's with right now...

My circle of Friends... sters...

This friendster thing never ceases to amaze me.

Sometime back, at a party, i had the pleasure of being reacquainted with a rather famous sportswriter (lets call him P.A)

Here's how the conversation went after i was introduced...

PA: Nice to meet you.

Me: Actually, we met before...

PA: Yeah, (scratching his chin) you do look familiar...

Me: Yup. We got introduced after the 1999 UAAP finals...

PA: (shakes his head) ...nah thats not it...

Me: (me thinking again)... umm we also met on that Literary awards night in 2000? (He was a guest of a friend of mine)

PA: (thinks about it, then shakes his head) ...nah...

Me: ...ummm one of the UAAP games perhaps? I used to tag along with the photographers...

PA: (cuts me off)... I got it!

Me: (Amazed)...really? (At this point i was quite irritated of having never been remembered.)

PA: FRIENDSTER!!!! ...You're Trina's friend right? :)

Sigh... my profile's more memorable than the real thing...


Ah, the levels of relationships:



Basically, a friendster is anyone you ever said hello to at least once in your life...

...or someone with the same name as somebody you once said hello to way back in the past...

...or someone who once said hello to someone with the same name as somebody you once said hello to sometime in your past life...

...And that is why it stops at the third degree. Otherwise this could go on and on...

...and we wouldnt want to have strangers on our friends list wouldn't we? :)

The only thing i hate about it is how sucky the system is sometimes.
Messages keep getting delayed, friend lists dont show up properly ... just damn crappy...

Oh well, at least now its better than the time Friendster kept changing my profile to "Dating/Serious relationship... MEN".
No wonder my inbox was suddenly full of gay messages...

The top 5 things i like about it...

1) Keeps you in touch with old friends (in case you're too cheap to send a text their way)

2) Its a much more visual Yahoo group thingie... (too bad you cant forward attachments though)

3) Can be a vanity site for those who publish their glamour pix... and befriend all the Chicksters, PrettyGirls and UberSexyBootyliciousImDHottestBabeInManila friendsters out there...

...the other side to this, my hotblooded male friends, is that these sites already pick out the beautiful ones so you dont have to look for them... :)

...and before i get hatemail from feminists... this goes for both sexes as well... ;)

4) Great scam engine for flattering testimonials... ...though in my case, ive deleted so many incriminating ones, ive stopped looking at testimonials altogether...

5) Great way to get to know a friend's pretty friend... "Eeey.... (joey style) hang out with her? Cool... so when r we going out again?"

Fun isnt it? :)

So add me, ok?

...make sure its your pic...
I suck at names but i never forget a face.
No matter how horrible :P
