-9 to 0 points: You're as goth as Pat Robertson, Bill O'Reilly, or Tom DeLay. Sure, Jesus might love you . . . but telling everyone He does makes Him hate you.

1 to 8 points: Welcome to Moderate America.

9 to 10 points: You're what's called a Poser Goth. Return the foundation to the Marshall Field's makeup department and stop trying to piss off your parents.

11 to 14 points: You're a Functional Goth. Basically, you dig the scene, but, hey, a guy's got to work, so the makeup is only for after the closing whistle blows.

15 to 19 points: Your boss thinks you're weird but do your job well so he looks the other way, while your parents think you worship Satan and might be gay. Congratulations, you've been ostracized by society.

20 to 22 points: Oh my goth! Check your pulse, Prince of Darkness -- we've got a winner.
