    I use braces (also known as "curly brackets") to indicate sarcasm. If there are none present, I probably believe what I am saying; should it turn out to be inaccurate trivia, please tell me rather than trying to play along with an apparent joke I don't know I'm making.

    Yeah, I stopped after getting like five where I was like 'I don't think that word means what you think it means', including the very first question I got. A previous test I did suggested I'm in like the top 15%, which is unreasonable but unlikely (an ESL friend of mine got the same score, which suggests my vocab is 3-5 times as large as hers).

    On Twilight, I have no issue with literature making the point that humans are flawed. But whenever your starting point is a human whatever you end up with is almost certainly going to be similarly flawed. That's like half the reason vampires are commonly shown as creating predatory hierarchies (which IIRC Twiglet vampires still do), and why the augmented in cyberpunk can be even more flawed than those without implants. The point of introducing the inhuman into your story is generally to have them highlight our flaws via their exaggerated behaviour, which Twilight does seem to do despite Meyer's claims (Edward at least is a manipulative and obsessive little sod).
