I played around with the answers a little. First time through 54. Then I changed 'have you contacted a politician' from yes to no. 36, I emailed one about 8 months ago. Then I went back to my original answers, except I change the Phone answer to all cell. 18!, We have a land line but it is for DSL only, we get phone calls on it but do not call out. Anyway, it surprised me that one answer changed my results that much.

It would be interesting to do a poll on the score and compare it with the real age of E-R folks...

I told my son that I scored 93 (he is a millenial) and he says that I'm not anything like his friends....

Score of 20, age 53 (mid-boomer). What's interesting is that my score likely would have changed depending on when I took the survey (even within the past few months or week). Things like # of texts (I really did only send 2 today, but other days, much more or less), TV viewing, etc. The only thing that will probably never change is tattoos or piercing. No thanks has always been my thought on that!
