Utter Stupidity

My name is Rachel and I have a MySpace account. With that out of the way, I got a "bulletin" from someone today that purports to quantify how much of a "badass" one is. 100 items are listed, each one worth a point, and the scoring system is as follows:
10-20= goodie good
21-30= a little rebelious
31-40= getting hot baby
41-50= rebel
51-60= total bad girl/boy
61-70= You are a pain in the *ss!
71-80= f**king bad *ss
81-90= cant believe you made it this far
91-100= see u in hell

Okay, let's start by acknowledging the stupidity of most of the "survey" bulletins that go around MySpace. Particularly when they are spread around by people closer to 30 than 20. Not to mention that this particular one was clearly geared toward the young, with items such as:
21) missed curfew
36) wore black nail polish
53) been to a concert
62) seen an R rated movie in theaters
64) skipped school

Okay, fine, it's a stupid, juvenile tame-waster. But let's look at some of the items you get a point for:
17) cut yourself
24) been to a therapist
25) been to rehab
65) had an eating disorder
79) been sexually harrassed

That's right kids, cut yourself, get touched inappropriately, and throw up your meals, and you too can be a total badass! I don't know why, but I'm completely infuriated by this, and by the near-30 guy who passed it along.
