Hide your kids, hide your wife!

A word to describe you when you're in a good mood?

The color that you wear the least?

A word to describe you when you're in a bad mood?

Ken is tired from work, he has two kids and may lose his job if he doesn't finish his assignment: what do you do?

Are you a spiritual person?

Would you consider yourself a friendly person?

The color that you wear most often? (this is a pretty boring looking closet, by the way)

Choose one of these random numbers.

Do you believe in true love?

Your best friend of 10 years told you a secret. You promised that you'd never tell it, but now if you don't tell - you will be going to jail for a week in the middle of your vacation. Do you break your promise or do you take the fall?

The World Ender - Botulinum Toxin

The World Ender - Botulinum Toxin

Oh, hey Botulinum! I thought you'd be too busy getting rid of wrinkles to take one of my little quizzes. How are you!? Wait, don't answer, I already know~

It's said that a pure drop of botulinum (YOU!) can kill a whole city. Luckily for all of us it's extremely difficult to extract in a pure form. But you're sure to know one of your "babies" - Botox.

You are versatile, easily able to leave a room in awe if you want to, and absolutely vile when you want to be (and sometimes when you don't want to be!).

The Doctors call you the "miracle" drug, but I'll just keep calling you the ""Face Freezer" - has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Bye, Botox!

Rainforest Grim-Reaper - Batrachotoxin

Rainforest Grim-Reaper - Batrachotoxin

You are natural, down-to-earth, and easy to get along with (if you want to be) (you tend to turn froggish when you don't get your way, admit it~).

Your name is Batracho, the Rainforest Grim-Reaper!

Batrachotoxin is an extremely potent cardiotoxic and neurotoxic steroidal alkaloid found in certain species of frogs, melyrid beetles, and birds. This means that you stop people's hearts, literately.

I'll pretend it's because of your sweet personality, but you and I know the real reason. (wink wink)

The Poison Next Door - Cyanide

The Poison Next Door - Cyanide

I knew you couldn't have been far! It's not like I could escape Cyanide anyway!

Cyanide can be found in apple seeds, apricot seeds, and cherry seeds (to name a few). Don't be worried, a human would have to eat A LOT of apple seeds to be in danger. That being said, Cyanide is almost always around in the produce section and your neighbor probably has something with it too.

Too much of Cyanide (YOU!) leads to headaches, dizziness, fast heart rate, shortness of breath - so get used to taking people's breath away!

You're the type of person that can't be escaped, that is so infectious that you're absolutely everywhere, and is a staple in your friendship circle!

... let's just hope you don't kill them all.

The Royal Death - Arsenic

The Royal Death - Arsenic

Popularize in the Victoria era, arsenic is no J-O or K-E.

Because you have a taste for finer things, fit for any royal court - you're the poison used by the Kings! If exposure occurs over a brief period of time symptoms may include vomiting, abdominal pain, watery diarrhea. Pepto-Bismol is going to be put to work!

The funniest part is that it isn't hard to get your hands on arsenic (YOU!). Now I don't know how you want to interpret that, but either way will be funny.

The Deep and Dark - Maitotoxin

The Deep and Dark - Maitotoxin

Hey Maito! I haven't seen you since the last time I was in Atlantis, how've ya' been!? How's the ol' anchor and chain?

Named after a fish that regularly gets poisoned from eating dinoflaggelates, nasty little poisonous marine creatures, Maitotoxin leads to extracellular calcium channels, leading to an increase in levels of cytosolic Ca2+ ions.

In English this time? People who get too much of you have their cells die faster, MUCH faster.

You are leveled, mysterious, and difficult to predict - which makes you interesting and maaaaybe a little scary.

The Destroying Angels -Amatoxin

The Destroying Angels -Amatoxin

The Destroyer is taking my quiz!? How exciting!

You don't need me to tell you how refreshingly quirky, cool, and downright weird you are - do I? You already know about the wonderful things you have to offer, but the main question is if you wanna offer it?

Second only to the Death Cap, who has an admittedly less fun and exciting name, the Destroying Angels reign as one of the most poisonous mushrooms known to existence. The Destroying Angel (YOU!) damage the internal organs. The worst part is that they're easy to confuse with edible mushrooms.

Just a piece of you in two gallons of soup can kill everyone who eats the soup! I love your quirkiness, but remember - you're dangerous when you want to be!
