This quiz should be called “Are you a Bubba?” If I knew anything about NASCAR I would have got a 16 and if I was married to my cousin I would have hit 20.

Take the quiz and find out.

    In other words, you can see through your bubble, but you need to get out more.

    In other words, even if you’re part of the new upper class, you’ve had a lot of exposure to the rest of America.

    My husband is a bubba even though he comes from a wealthy farming family. Lots of advanced degrees in science and served as naval officers in that group. All have also spent 14 hour days on a tractor too. This test does not tell the whole story.

  5. ROFL I got the between 13 and 16 score. I should have gotten credit for having a child in the military lol.

    No bubble for me!

    If the first few questions were less gender specifically male, I betcha I woulda got a 20. I’ve never worked in a factory but I have been a secretary.

  8. WMCB says:

    No bubble at all. I scored at least 17. I did count wearing scrubs as a nurse as a “uniform”. And I counted the VFW as a “rotary, kiwanis, or union hall”. On the “factory floor” question, it only asked for you, not your spouse, so I had to answer no. If it had been “you or your spouse”, I’d have gotten a yes on that one too.

    I know Joe and Jane Sixpack. Well.

    On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored at least 17.

    In other words, you’re so embedded in mainstream America that you need to visit the bubble once in a while.

      13-16, and I counted a small machine shop (secy) as factory, and veterinary hosp scrubs as a uniform and an aching body at the end of the day 😀

      That NASCAR photo was not fair. Some are very recognizable even to non-followers.

    I’m in the bubble. I feel so creative. You know, maybe Obama isn’t so bad after all. LOL

  11. HELENK says:

    i scored between 13 and 16, i do not have a bubble

  12. yttik says:

    LOL, I don’t know how I feel about this quiz. It’s a bit sexist and yeah, it probably should be called a bubba quiz.

    Anyway, I’m so far out of the bubble, I don’t even have a bubble. I think I would have scored different if I had some more money. I’d like to fill my fridge with domestic beer and eat out at Applebees, it’s just not in the budget right now. I can’t afford to go to Nascar, but I do catch the lawnmower races once in a while : )

    • HELENK says:

      If I go to the camel races in Indio Ca next month, does that count?

      • HELENK says:

        I will try again to post this. there really are camel races

        FEBRUARY 2012

        RIVERSIDE COUNTY FAIR & NATIONAL DATE FESTIVAL – RIVERSIDE COUNTY FAIR & NATIONAL DATE FESTIVAL FAIRGROUNDS
        (February 17 – 26, 2012)
        The “City of Festivals” has been home to the National Date Festival & County Fair for more than 60 years, it’s a week long of crazy fun with live entertainment including camel and ostrich races and a nightly Arabian Nights musical pageant. There’s also a carnival, food of all varieties and lots of shopping.
        (760) 863-8247

        • yttik says:

          LOL, you should go!Then you can tell people you’re off to the camel races Just watch out, they spit.

      • HELENK says:

        have you ever been to a donkey base ball game??

        some volunteer fire companies have them in the summer to help raise money.
        Watching a bunch of guys trying to play baseball while riding on a donkey will make you laugh until you cry

        • elliesmom says:

          I’ve played donkey basketball. Each donkey is trained to do something different. There’s only one on each team that will take you anywhere near the basket so you can shoot. There’s even one that’s trained to need a pooper scooper. I’m glad it was for a good cause. lol

    • DandyTiger says:

      I’m not for Obama in any way, but this is so insane I’d probably support Obama sending in troops to take down the state government there. That’s so over the top I can’t believe it.

      • votermom says:

        I think the Georgia judge entered the default ruling because neither Obama nor his attorney showed up at all.
        They could have at least sent a lawyer in with an excuse for Obama being too busy to attend.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m not understanding it either, especially the one parent was born in Africa b.s.

        Jindal and Rubio are children of immigrants and born in the U.S. and both are qualified as Natural Born citizens.

    here is another one.

    DO NOT TAKE THE DOE PEOPLE TO A RACE TRACK,
    you will lose your shirt

    • Lulu says:

      I remember reading that the house legal counsel for the Dept of Energy loan program was an academic from Stanford in between her stints at the World Bank and IMF. Her specialty must be rat holes for money. I think she also wrote the legal opinion that it is OK to pay taxpayers back after political cronies are paid first in bankruptcy. For some reason she does not want to talk to Issa.

  14. kc says:

    I live in Jacksonville, Florida (or, according to my kids, Jerksonville) and there is an anti-newt, nasty commercial on about every 15 minutes. They are really smarmy too–almost enough to make me feel sorry for the Newtster–stressing almost.

  15. kc says:

    I don’t have a bubble either–thank God for my youth.

  16. Three Wickets says:

    Between 9 and 12. That would be my Midwestern roots.

  17. Three Wickets says:

    Latest Romney ad.

  18. Three Wickets says:

    Conservative establishment begins carpet bombing Newt.

    • DeniseVB says:

      It’s like throwing Newt raw meat, I think he likes it. I’ve noticed Drudge going awfully negative on him too … wonder how much ad space the Romney campaign is buying up over there?

    • yttik says:

      This could backfire. Newt’s appeal has to do with him being the underdog, with people perceiving him as being unfairly attacked. They like to see Newt down and fighting back.

      If I were running against him, I think I would have tried addressing his hot headedness, the way he can go off the deep end and implode at any moment. I think that’s a bigger fear that people have.

      “Nancy Pelosi doesn’t like Newt” is practically an endorsment! I wonder who came up with that one? I could be wrong, but I think if conservatives see that Pelosi ad, it would make them more likely to vote for Newt, not less likely.

    Here’s the link to the full how thick is your bubble quiz. On the original quiz I scored 9-12, on this one, I’m a whopping 52. Take it, the quiz is totally worth your time and the quiz starts on page 103 http://www.scribd.com/doc/77349055/Coming-Apart-by-Charles-Murray-Quiz

    I read the long-form of Dr. Murray’s questionairre. I suspect he is confused between economic power-class and social lifestyle-status. Or maybe he is just trying to foster that confusion in the minds of others. So . . . carpal tunnel syndrome does not count as “hurt”? Based on what . . Dr. Professor Murray’s say-so? How about fasciitis?
    How about tendinitis? How about cubital tunnel syndrome? How about
    de Quervan’s area syndrome? I know people who had both hands operated on and could never do their former work again, thanks to unattended-to repetitive motion syndrome. Part of the body-destruction Apple’s Chinese workers endure is repetitive finger-joint destruction. I hope Dr. Murray’s hands fill up with the carpal tunnel syndrome he loftily pretends “doesn’t count”.

    I haven’t been in a parade about something other than Gay Rights and Save The Whales and so forth? So what? I haven’t been in a parade that WAS about Gay Rights and Save The Whales and so forth either. Maybe I’m just an anti-social shut-in.

    I don’t have any mass-market domestic beer in my defridgetator? Well, I don’t have any class-market boutique beer either, foreign OR domestic.

    Serioulsy though . . . I scored 5 on the short form of Dr. Murray’s 20 Questions. I must be RICH! And here I thought I was only making $34,000/ year.
