ancient languages

You are Linear B. Even those who can follow you think you're all Greek to them. Which, after all, is true - Linear B being the first known text for written Greek. To most people, you're incomprehensible. But what do you care? You're tough, hard, long-enduring and have greater nobility than most. Naturally, you don't admit to borrowing extensively from your brother Linear A.

This test tracked 4 variables. How the score compared to the other people's:

Higher than 32% on Ideogramatic
Higher than 46% on Syllablic
Higher than 47% on Logogramic
Higher than 34% on Alphabetic

I was Linear B...such a poetic name...but I couldn't find a link to an HTML code to put in. The blog from which I got the link to the test had their results posted and it must have been a widget of some kind...I'm just not quite knowledgeable enough to have found it

okay, found the HTML but had to do some serious slicing and dicing to get it to fit in this blog, then I accidentally erased the href tag for the image for it and don't remember which one it was, and, subsequently, gave up. Here's the info and I feel smart enough knowing vaguely what an href is so I'll quit while I'm ahead!
