Just in case you thought you had, y'know, any kind of free will:

Pill changes women's taste in men

I'd like to see more tests done here - they may, after all, be highlighting differences between those people who are more likely/less likely to take the pill rather than people affected by the pill. Still, interesting result.

I rated 30 on the personality test here.

Apparently this means that:
Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.

It's always great to be buttered up by the internet, isn't it? The test is out of 50, where 50 is far too strong a personality and 0 is far too weak and 30 is just about perfect.

I wonder if I can tell my manager that I deserve a promotion because of my perfect scores?

Standard Life has the equivalent to a huge bulletin board system, covering all of the internal groups that need to keep track of things. The clubs also have access to this, and here's something from the Film Club's review board. It's from a review of Raiders of the Lost Ark:

But does it bother anyone else that Indy doesn't exactly win? He pretty much gets his bum kicked by the Jerries and has to rely on God to save him which I can't help but feel is cheating. It's like Moses swinging in on a rope to save Batman or something.
JOKER: Ba-ha-ha! I shall destroy you Batman!
MOSES: Not so fast, Joker! (Moses raises his staff. Nothing happens.)
JOKER: Well?
MOSES: Aha! The Red Sea has parted! Agreed, this doesn't really affect you here in North America but, trust me, it's really amazing.
