Wow, I ended up doing a lot better than I thought. And I didn’t use any reference material at all! Thumbs up!
But I was hoping I’d rate a Brady or Sutcliffe. 😛

You Are A Sick Puppy

I do actually have several books and compendiums about serial killers currently gathering dust on my shelves — maybe it’s time to crack those spines again, for old-times’ sake. Ha, a pun!

    You Are Pretty Interested In Serial Killers But Unfortunately You Get Most Of your Facts From The History Channel,But Than Again You Are Just Sick Enough To Enjoy The Show.

    You Rate A Carl Panzram

    I scored Albert Fish also. And I’m not that into serial killers really. What does that say about my guessing skillz?

    I don’t know my score. I gave up after page one in frustration and disinterest.

    You need to bone up on your serial killer studies! Ha, a pun!

    Perhaps your mad guessing skillz are Mentat-like!

    zs –
    I guess ol’ Carl Panzram is the middle-rated SK.. I’ve seen quite a few people get him. Which is a weird rating system, cos Carl killed a lot of people — certainly more than Albert Fish did. Albert was just your standard shit-eating, pins-in-his-urethra freak.
    And I agree, the test-maker should’ve had the correct answers someplace..

    Upon reflection, I think that test is dodgily assembled. I’ve seen people on Penda’s Backroom have low scores, but receive crazy percentiles on ‘Killpoints’. And I remember three of the questions were jokey ones, so it’s a bit skewed. I will say that a good portion of the questions had me stumped for a minute or two, though..

    I did mention my disinterest, did I not?
    No boning, unless we’re using the more contemporary colloquialism involving sexual intercourse..
