Our city is paying to put large dumpsters on the streets for about a week at a time for neighborhood beautification. In preparation we cleaned up all the trash and stuff lying around the back yard today. Shit that has been accumulating for years before I moved into my current residence.
- a rusted out bed frame
- shit loads of Styrofoam
- lots and lots of cans (beer and soda)
- like 4 hoses (who needs more than one?)
- dead soccer balls
- old interior doors
- rail road ties
- empty cigarette packs
- candy wrappers

The Renaissance was a cultural movement that profoundly affected European intellectual life. Beginning in Italy, and spreading to the rest of Europe by the 16th century, its influence affected literature, philosopy, religion, art, politics, science, and all other aspects of intellectual enquiry. Renaissance artists looked at the human aspect of life in their art. They did not reject religion but tended to look at it in it's purest form to create visions they thought depicted the ideals of religion. Painters of this time had their own style and created works based on morality, religion, and human nature. Many of the paintings depicted what they believed to be the corrupt nature of man.
People that like Renaissance paintings like things that are more challenging. They tend to have a high emotional stability. They also tend to be more concientious then average. They have a basic understanding of human nature and therefore are not easily surprised by anything that people may do. They enjoy life and enjoy living. They are very aware of their own mortality but do not dwell on the end but what they are doing in the present. They enjoy learning, but may tend to be a bit more closed minded to new ideas as they feel that the viewpoint they have has been well researched and considered. These people are more old fashioned and not quite as progressive. They enjoy the finer things in life like comfort, a good meal, and homelife. They tend to be more spiritual or religious by nature. They are open to new aesthetic experiences.
Except for the being emotionally stable part I think it's pretty accurate. Go take your own test and see what some random images say about you.
