Are You Prone To Epilepsy? Take This Short Test To Find Out!

EpilepsyI’m pretty sure if you did an academic study, you’d find that there has never been a time in human history where being epileptic has sucked worse than right now.

Everyday we are bombarded with flashing lights, rapidly-changing images, flickering screens and a whole array of potentially volatile visual stimuli that could trigger an epileptic fit.

While I’ve never seen someone have an epileptic fit, if it’s anything as scary as this one guy who had a seizure during an exam at varsity this one time because he’d been up all night schnarfing ritalin, then it’s not something you want to happen to you ever in your life.

The best way to prevent a possible fit is to know your status. Thanks to the wonder of the internet, you can find that out by simply clicking this link right here, and by shaking your mouse cursor like someone on the tail end of a 5-day coffee binge.



I must warn you though, I’m not epileptic but after a minute of furious mouse-shaking my work colleagues found me twitching uncontrollably on the floor with my eyes rolled back in my head.

Admittedly, this could be because it had been four hours since my last drink, but it usually takes at least seven for the twitching to get to that intensity, so I really don’t know what to make of it at all.

All I can say is make sure you have some tongue-depressors handy before you click that link and don’t for god’s sake do it alone.

Yours in epilepsy-status awareness,
