Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

There's something seriously messed up with that test - my blogger twin is (cringe!) Instapundit.
Naturally, I won't be posting the result on my site.

Oh god! If I'd gotten InstaPundit as my blogger twin I'd have slit my throat already.... FWIW, when I'd found this at BSTommy's blog there were three of us who'd done it (BSTommy, Barry of Inn of the LastHome (link in RTB pages if you' want to look him up), and me, and we'd all gotten Wheaton as our blogger twins.

You have my deepest sympathies.

I'm Wil Wheaton, too. I don't even know who that is.

Wil Wheaton played Weasly....uh Wesley Crusher on "Star Trek: The Next Generation". For some unexplained reason Trekkers and marginal Trekkers (myself included) found the character of Wesley to be quite annoying (a wildly popular audio clip that was available on the web for a while was Patrick Stewart as Capt. Picard shouting "Shut up, Wesley!")

Since then, Wil's been doing some acting, has become a fairly popular blogger (to judge from the number of blogrolls I've seen him on), and has published at least one book (on blogging, IIRC). As for myself, I forgave him for being Wesley Crusher when he migrated to Linux a couple years back; don't know if he's still a die hard Linux geek, though.

Fortunately I don't take these tests seriously :)

I don't either, but my distaste for InstaPundit would cause me to temporarily take leave of my senses in that situation (assuming I have senses to take leave of; I can think of a few regular readers who might dispute that... :-) ).

Wil Wheaton's site is pretty fun, though since he's gotten serious about writing he posts less often, reserving stuff for the books. Still, it's on my Regular Rounds.

He's written two books, both are mostly compilations of the stories he's posted on the blog. Some are about learning to adapt to non-fame and has-been status after Trek. Some are about life as a stepfather. Some are cool stories from his past. Two good ones are "William Fucking Shatner" and "SpongeBob Vega$pant$," about a wild weekend in Vegas. He's a very good writer and extraordinarily honest.
