open the pod bay door, HAL

You may feel all safe at the moment, sitting there watching daytime TV in your underpants eating crisps, but be warned a wafer-thin 100 kilometres or so of atmosphere separates you from what James Dickey memorably described as the "vast beast-whistle of space". So it'll be useful to know in advance how long you'd survive should you find yourself up there without a space suit or some other protective device.

This handy quiz is brought to you by the people at OnePlusYou, where plenty more fun stuff can be found. This includes various tools for assessing your blog content, including the one below which reveals that despite some sterling work during my occasional forays into the wacky world of religion, I clearly don't swear enough during my regular blog posts. Which is, frankly, a fucking disgrace.
