A friend just announced that when her time comes, she’ll be going to heaven. A Facebook app told her so.
Her scores are eye-popping:
She is not just 100% generous
(which I could actually confirm) — she is almost six times more
generous than the highest possible score.
My own results are impressive too:
The sort-of-interesting thing is that this not based on questions you have to answer, or on any kind of ex post facto information you volunteer. The app only appears to scan your Facebook page. Then, using mysterious criteria (no doubt pulled from the posterior of a programmer who couldn’t be bothered to give this even 200% effort), you are assigned to the God Club or the Devil Club.
I’ll be shopping for asbestos suits.
P.S. One way to avoid hell on Earth is to block Facebook apps.
P.P.S. My 13-year-old daughter just saw this and told me “Don’t worry daddy, you’re going to be where all the interesting people are.” Love that kid.
