This is just kind of a general post with an interesting link, a couple-three memes, and a thought I have for a survey/experiment.

First, a link to a video showing a cat who not only swims, but scuba dives. (It's really cool.)

Meme the First:

You're 70% Irish

You're very Irish, and most likely from Ireland.
(And if you're not, you should be!)

(I'm 1/2 least, that's what my parents were told when I was adopted.)

Meme the Second:

Your Power Color Is Red-Orange

At Your Highest:
You are warm, sensitive, and focused on your personal growth.

At Your Lowest:
You become defensive and critical if you feel attacked.

In Love:
You are loyal - but you demand the respect you deserve.

How You're Attractive:
You are very affectionate and inspire trust.

Your Eternal Question:
"Am I Respected?"

(This is remarkably accurate...although I'm not sure I see the color link, the personality stuff is pretty well dead-on.)

Meme the Third:

You Are 7 Up

Understated and subtle, people warm up to you slowly.
But once they're hooked, they can't imagine going back to anyone else!

Your best soda match: Diet Coke

Stay away from: Mountain Dew

(I'm not sure how I came up with this if I answered that I only drink diet, but ok...)

Survey/Experiment Idea:

This dovetails in very nicely from the last meme. I want to do a blind taste test. But I want to test a REALLY broad spectrum: diet cola.

I want to take Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Diet Rite, Coca-Cola Zero, Diet Coke w/Splenda, and Pepsi One (also maybe some "store brands")...and see what the taste differences are. I also want to see if I can identify them by taste. ;) I figure one of these days, I can gather up some cash & hit the local convenience store, buying 20 oz bottles of all of them, and then see from there. I'd have to have help, of course, so I wouldn't know which was which, but I think this would put the old "Pepsi Challenge" to shame. Anyone up for trying it with me? ;)
