You scored as Capt. Mal Reynolds. The Captain. You are the captain of the ship, so the crew are your responsibility. You just want to do the job, get paid and keep flying. Why is that always so hard?
Which Serenity character are you?

As an aside, my link didn't work and I had to take the test over again to get the html code for the page. I had originally scored 94% Mal, then a 3-way tie for 2nd with 73, 3-way for next with 68, and the last ones tied with 63 (I think) River, Wash and Kaylee all at the bottom. Kinda bummed about that. Love the Wash character and what the hell kind of mechanic scores the ace mechanic 2nd to last?

When Jason says:
"It's a telling tale of how the media can be led astray because they're too often only half-educated, and lack critical reasoning skills necessary to assess the validity of sources on medical and military stories."
I'm reminded of an observation I heard my mother make once during her hippy days in college. She would shake her head and comment that, "Some people are just educated beyond their intelligence." Jason's quote reminds me of that in regards to many reporters. The lack of critical thinking, failure to fact-check and ignorance on the part of so many reporters strikes me as being a case of almost an entire employment demographic that was educated beyond their intelligence.
PS Oh, and as an aside it reminds me of a favorite quote from one of her professors regarding a female professor. He said she was a, "brass breasted b!^C#, whose piss could etch glass." That one still cracks me up.

Aside from the ability to kick anyone's ass around the world I don't want much from the federals and I want they and the state and locals to ensure the required infrastructure for life in America, but past that I don't want them wasting any more money.
All of his stuff has been witty and funny, and damnably informative.
