Or is it going to be a universal thing that doesn't include questions that can only apply to one gender?
We'll go for universality. The current Purity Test seems to strive for that, but overlooks it on the abortion question.

There will probably be more emphasis on nerdy pursuits rather than sex/drugs anyway!

Aha, I will probably score higher since I am new to the superthread and haven't done things like take pics of trains (because someone on the superthread asked) or things like that.

Back in the day, 11OTT worked. On Vertigo, Vertigo x2 was just a bit ridiculous. Especially since they could have just used Native Son instead. That would have made so much more sense, and been bloody awesome.

Keep the sex and drugs in there still, though. To some extent.

He seemed to be one of those easygoing people who's just happy to be alive. The 10 minute wait for the train just flew by. So, yeah, good times.
That is awesome. Go him.

I love trams almost as much as trains! Calcutta is one of the few (maybe even the only) cities in India with operational trams.

And made most of the audience go "WTF?!"

Ack, I was gonna go to bed, but I just started DLing the 13/12/80 Boston show... Then again, it's already 30% done, so if I start saying I'm leaving now, that should work

You say that as if it's a bad thing.

My school's library had the most beautiful copy of Dante's Divine Comedy, and since I was the only person hiding out in that section, its condition was almost as good as new.

Did they open with "The Ocean" often for the Boy tour?

And wow, I can actually make out the words now.

Oooh. I'm familiar with some of the railways in India (and who DOESN'T love the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway?), but not its tramways. It seems most works on tramways, in English at least, are just "yeah, the US and the UK had trams until the fifties then tore them up ... same goes for Australia and New Zealand except Melbourne ... and countries elsewhere have/had them but they speak funny languages so we won't say any more".

Yes, The Ocean was the most common opener by quite some margin. Kind of a weird choice, but I think it worked. It had this weird atmospheric vibe, with Adam's 'fro bobbing in the dim lighting, then they ripped into 11OTT.
