Give me burgers, fries and chile dogs! Chips and dip Something healthy, because I don't want bad food hindering my health/appearance Healthy food during the week, and say, grilled samon, cavier and red wine of weekend outings 5. What does the phrase "nouvre riche" mean? It's a type of French creme they use on deserts It's an age old term for those newly initiated (de facto, that is) into the sociological "lower-upper" class. It's a term used on the street which translates into "ni**er rich" It's a term for those who are referred to as "new money" I don't know, but I don't trust anyone who speaks French 6. In the context of Chapter Three of Descartes "Discourse on Metaphysics" Descartes comes to a consensus with his conciousness, stating "cogito ergo sum"...meaning: Cognito consumes me: Descartes was trying to explain that all people have a type of dual identity That the sum of all problems and inquiries can be defined as the gears of the universe I think therefore I am: he used this point to philosophically prove the existence of God by stating the cause of the existence of thought That every reaction carries an equal but opposite reaction 7. What is your thought on the environment? The environment is the epicenter of the planet's lifeforce, therefore it must be protected, to ensure the health of all who inhabit it. I think the environment must be taken care of, but various environmental groups and legislation such as the Clean Air Act in the end serve to hinder economic progress, the REAL epicenter of human lifeforce I don't care either way, because it is a macro-concern, in other words it does not affect me on an individual level What?!? Who gives? I mean, we all know Global Warming does not exist and never will, so I'm gonna keep driving my truck and dumping cans and wrappers wherever the heck I want! This is America, where it's about the individual, not the environment! We should not spend money taking care of the environment because there is no need to do so, if the average temperature is in fact going up by 1 degree C every ten years, then our grandkids will only have to put up with a climate 5 degrees C hotter. I mean What does the environment have to do with one being what you say is "high class"? 8. In a formal dining setting, which spoon is used for dessert?

New England style silverware arrangements are the real way to go! WHO CARES!?! 9. What are your thoughts on ExonMobile's MasterPiece Theatre? I like it. Yes, it is generated by the very petroleum-industry giant that gouges the Third World daily, but it is good to see they were forced to give back to the community. It is a great way to watch film renditions of David Copperfield, and Bleak House. I have heard of it, I would like to watch it, but I do not have the time What the heck? Never heard of this show, and would never watch it either. British film is so boring. 10. What type of car do you drive?

There is a saying among the higher classes in Europe. It states that "...the middle class will alwayas have an inferiority complex because..." "...they have only money and no class position." "...any of them can become Prime Minister, but none of them will ever be King/Queen." "...no matter how much they make, there will always be someone who makes more." 15. Do you feel this quiz was "class biased"? Yes, because to genuinely score high on it, you must adhere to various tastes and mannerisms that require you to have a high income. Yes, but not in the monetary sense. In many places, such as France, social class has very little to do with how much money you have, but rather it depends on your social prestige. No, I mean, if you don't like the quiz, get out, ya know? No because it largely bases questions on intellectual matters, and it does not take the richest person to be intellectually inclined. Yes, because even though intellectual competence does not always equal monetary strength, it is in itself a form of "class".
