People on the Go 

Analysis for People on the Go

Am I a Globetrotter? Let's face it, there are travelers and then there are "bad" travelers. Some of us wander around the world looking for adventure. Some of us wander around our apartments looking for that bong we had just a minute ago. Do you have what it takes to be an international jetsetter, or are you better suited to a recliner, remote, and a plate of tater tots? Don't sign up for that cruise around the world until you take this simple true/false quiz and find out! Good luck!

Did you answer True to 10 or more of the above? Congratulations! You have what it takes to be a jetsetting, playboy globetrotter! Grab that passport and fanny pack and head for the skies. Globetrotters get along well with OPB listeners, Banana Republic salespeople, and Francophiles. They are hated by flight attendants, and tend to be very good at basketball. Globetrotters who bring back presents have many friends. Stingy globetrotters are lonely and have hepatitis.
