How Hetero is your Twitter?

by Francis_Burdett / July 21, 2009 1:00 AM PDT

Stockholm's gay pride group launched a "How hetero are you?" Twitter analyzer as one of many ways to entice you to stop by for pride, which kicks off July 27.

It goes like this: Enter your Twitter username, and it'll decide what percentage straight your 140 character messages are based on your record of mentioning things like "gay" or "Prop 8."

96% Hetero
"Hetero is your middle name. You make Queen Elisabeth look gay."

84% Hetero
"You're as hetero as black coffee. Bitter, unpretentious and doubtless popular. But what's the deal with that burnt aftertaste?"

78% Hetero
76% Hetero
"You're winnebago hetero. Get the kids, pack the grill and, for the love of God, don't forget the SpongeBob dvd."

68% Hetero
"You're very metro hetero. Hetero. Not hetro. Hetero. Not hetero. Who can know for sure? Probably few but you."

"Not that there's anything wrong with that", Nicholas. Happy I'm not surprised in the least by the findings reported about the hosts.

I wonder if all Apple fans are in the 60s and 70s. Wink

Molly actually had a nice rant against Prop 8
by minimalist / July 22, 2009 11:00 PM PDT

on her personal blog the night before the vote. It was very impressive (and gutsy considering the fact that they go out of their way to not bring up politics on most CNET shows)

I'd be willing to bet most of the hosts are pretty open and supportive people. This is the bay area after all. And what other news site has such a prominent transgendered reporter?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
