So if this is the "Fun Meter" then i am just not that fun.I only got 40/99.... wait i'd probably be pretty happy with that grade in school!!! now i noticed that a lot of these would require one to travel to Europe... gee i wonder who in the family will have the most??? maybe the person that goes to Europe every other day. so this is really easy, just copy and paste and bold or unbold the things you've done or not done!!!
peace out peeps!
