The following is a listing of timewasters on our site. We hope you enjoy them, and heartily apologise for sucking out your very soul in the process.

Find out who you really are.

The Glendinning Test
An in-joke gone so far it's almost drilled a hole right through. Two of our illustrious editors live in the same house; which of its inhabitants are you?

The Horrible Affliction Test
You're lovely. We know you're lovely. You know you're lovely. But imagine you were a horrible, noxious affliction. Which one would you be?

The Evil Criminal Test
Grrrrr. Criminals through history. Grrrrr! (Yeah, you've guessed it. You're one of them. But which one? Who can say? The excitement is killing all of us.)

The Colossal Death Robot Test
Imagine you're a giant warlike beast with machine guns for arms, fashioned from metal and looking for destruction. It's an attractive image, isn't it? Find your death robot alter ego here.

What Kind of Drunk Are You?
Yeah, you're a drunk. We've seen you stumble home late at night from the bars and clubs, your chin soaked in beer and your clothes stinking of cigarettes and other peoples' sweat. But that's okay. We're from Edinburgh. Everyone does that in Edinburgh. All we want to know is: what kind of drunk are you?

The Annoying B-List Celebrity Test
Surely you can tell by the title? You don't need a description, do you? I mean. Really.

He's out daily on this site; you know and love him, we're sure. (Yes, you do.) But he comes in many shapes and sizes - which one are you?

Which Famous Homosexual Are You?
Throughout history, many people have made an incredible difference to our culture and the way we live. Some of them were gay - and it's not necessarily who you'd think. Which one are you?

The Glendinning Test v2.0
We enjoyed it so much, we did it again.

The Genocidal Maniac Test
We know sometimes that people can piss you off. It happens to all of us; we just lose control. Most of us don't find our anger directed at entire groups of people - but you're different. Yeah. You're a genocidal maniac.

Are You Damned?
Are you a holy martyr, kissing the feet of all before you and smiling like a good Christian? Or, are you a cake-loving, blood-lusting greed monster with a penchant for knifing children? Are you, in fact, damned?

Which Survivor of the Impending Nuclear Apocalypse Are You?
Yeah, the war's coming. There'll be death, destruction, blood and all the rest of it. Only a handful of people will survive - which are you?

The World Extremity Test
Give yourself the illusion of significance in your world of inconsequentiality.

The Office Moron Test

The Election Test
On November 2nd, 2004, the United States of America faced its hardest test yet. Could they elect someone who isn't a war criminal, a religious zealot or a corrupt adulterer? Well, as it turns out, no. But that's not the true question, the question everyone was wondering behind the furrowed brows and the parsed lips. The question was: which presidential candidate are we most like? The date might be long gone, but you can still find out here.

Fun little things. Play. Play.

The Weapons of Mass Destruction Donation System
