14. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

0 - Probably somewhere she would like to not be bothered, and we should stop looking for her.
1 - I wonder what would happen if Carmen Sandiego and Where's Waldo got together?... it would be the end of our searching because we'd never find them. My guess, Carmen is looking for Waldo on some crowded beach or supermarket.
2 - Someone like Carmen Sandiego wants to be seen, she wants us to find her. She's probably hanging out with a pygmy African tribe sharing her spoils.
3 - Carmen is a common name of Hispanic descent, as well Sandiego is Spanish. Criminals on the lam often find comfort and help in areas most similar to their background. So, Carmen is likely in a Spanish speaking country somewhere in Central or South America.
4 - She was always a wild girl so probably somewhere epic like the Spanish club scene.
5 - I know exactly where she is... back at my place. What!

15. Who is your favorite supervillain of the choices below?

0 - Norman Osborn/Green Goblin (Spiderman)... Norman Osborn is fighting his insanity, the Green Goblin. "Both" of them want Spidey dead. Even when the Green Goblin dies Norman influences others against Spiderman. That's power.
1 - Magneto (X-Men)... His power is cool but not necessarily amazing compared to others, but he's not crazy. He believes in something, which makes him a real and passionate foe.
2 - The Joker (Batman)... He is a psychopath which literally means he lacks sympathy or remorse. There is nothing more terrifying than someone who can't sympathize.
3 - Lex Luthor (Superman)... He's just a human without any super powers who outsmarts and often gets the better of arguably the most powerful superhero.
4 - Cat Woman (Batman)... Is she a hero? Is she a villain? She is hot, she has nine lives, she'll scratch the shit out of you, and she'll play on any side to gain the advantage.
5 - Loki (Thor)... The Guy Is A God!!! Of Mischief!!! Can't get any more powerful than that.

0-12 Points "The Loyal Companion"
You are modest to a fault. Everybody likes you, but you have trouble believing so. You have many friends because there's nothing threatening about you. You are talented but you're likely to be walked on and never taken seriously. However, many of your friends will stand up in your defense, whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is debatable. The Loyal Companion is important to the community because it fulfills the niche of making everyone around him/her look good. For example, a normal, not particularly interesting kid with a puppy instantly becomes George Clooney. You are the puppy not Clooney. The good news is, there is always room for you to change and gain some confidence to become more sure-footed.
Teams that suit you: Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates, LA Clippers, Cleveland Browns, Everton.
Genres: Pop, College radio, Acoustic coffee shop singer-songwriter.
Notable Artists: Jason Mraz (minus "Song for a Friend"), Plain White T's, O.A.R., Landon Pigg, Jack Johnson.
Notable Athletes: Chad Pennington, Chad Henne, really any Dolphins quarterback since Marino, Gerald Wallace, Jeff Francoeur, Dustin Brown.

13-24 Points "The Sure-Footed"
You are confident but not arrogant. You are comfortable with who you are and you put forth the effort to make everyone around you comfortable. Every community is looking for someone to fill this niche, but the Sure-Footed is probably the rarest of all cool species. Your hard work and talent is intimidating to others, so you might encounter some unwanted conflicts but this soon passes as you will likely make the instigator a companion. You are outgoing and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Furthermore, you make others around you look good. It is tough to consistently stay Sure-Footed because you must always be uniquely nimble and agile. Old people aren't agile.
Teams that suit you: Tampa Bay Rays, Minnesota Wild, Tottenham Hotspur, Oklahoma City Thunder, Tennessee Titans.
Genre: Creative Unique Indie Rock and Indie Rap
Notable Artists: Arcade Fire, Angus & Julia Stone, Tegan and Sara, The National, Childish Gambino, Chiddy Bang, Theophilus London.
Notable Athletes: Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Lionel Messi, Ndamukong Suh, Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Kane, Sidney Crosby, Troy Tulowitzki, Tim Lincecum.

25-37 Points "The Industrious"
Most people like you because you try hard to be likeable. You're outgoing and adventurous. You have worked hard to get where you are. Yet, you are insecure and try to hide it with confidence or sometimes arrogance. You are quite popular and talented, but what worries you most is that you might lose your status. So what you do is paint a picture of yourself for others to perceive you in your best light. By doing this you often cover up the traits that make you most relatable. You have a few really close friends (probably because they really know you) and a lot of social friends. There is always a niche for someone who is willing to work hard.
Teams that suit you: Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Braves, Liverpool, San Jose Sharks, Orlando Magic.
Genre: Start off in Rock, Rap, or Hip Hop and constantly alter their sound or collaborate to stay relevant.
Notable Artists: Alicia Keys, G. Love and Special Sauce, John Mayer, Snoop Dogg, Carlos Santana, Weezer.
Notable Athletes: Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Brad Richards, Wayne Rooney, Derek Jeter, Steve Smith.

38-50 Points "The Omniscient"
You think you know everything, and you are probably quite intelligent. But what you don't know or see is how much you may be getting on people's nerves. You are quick to dismiss those who do not share similar views. Although you can be a bit arrogant, you are quick to respect those you deem worthy. Furthermore, given time, you are willing to accept the qualities and positive characteristics of others you originally found valueless. You constantly try to progress but you won't change just to change, and others respect you for that. You are important to the ecosystem because people need someone to look up to or complain about.
Teams that suit you: Aresenal, San Antonio Spurs, Montreal Canadians, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Jets, New England Patriots.
Genres: Rock, Hard Rock, Orchestra, Anything that expresses your musical talents.
Notable Artists: Radiohead, U2, Foo Fighters, Rage Against the Machine, Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
Notable Athletes: Tim Duncan, Tom Brady, Ashley Cole, Joey Votto, Martin Brodeur.

51-63 Points "The Butt Cavity"
It's true you are an asshole, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Every group of friends needs an asshole because you push the limits and are constantly competing. You make everyone around you work harder. In doing so, you make a lot of people around you look bad (which is not cool) but you also make people look good. Consequently, the asshole needs level headed, modest friends to balance out the ecosystem. Serious issues occur when multiple assholes occupy the same niche in a community because eventually "one-uping" and fights break out leading to the inevitable "tantrum of epic proportion". And Bro, tantrums are totally not cool. You also say "epic", which is also not cool.
Teams that suit you: Oakland Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees, Detroit Red Wings, Miami Heat, Manchester United.
Genres: Anything, as long as it's mainstream and you have the skill and attitude.
Notable Artists: Kanye West, Celine Dion, Jason Aldean (Dirt Road Anthem), Green Day, Metallica.
Notable Athletes: Philip Rivers, A Rod, Jonathan Papelbon, Christiano Ronaldo, Kobe Bryant, Todd Bertuzzi.

64-75 Points "The Mimic"
You have absolutely no clue! You don't know what you like, who you are, or how to behave. There is no secure niche for you in any environment. The only thing you know how to do is imitate what you perceive to be "cool". This "skill" may trick a few individuals into being your friend, but this will never last. Furthermore, you are likely to dump people you don't see as fit to be your friend. You do not understand that everyone inherently is cool in some way or another by being who they are. You constantly try to change and adjust to the media propaganda of cool, but never really discovered what makes you happy and relatable to others. So stop copying everything you see on TV and become a real boy (like Pinocchio) or girl.
Teams that suit you: None
Genres: Dub Step
Notables: Brian Bosworth, Skream!, 2BiT, Sean Avery? maybe?
