2% also. But the way I eat, you'd think I have 3 already....

I like my meat well done; I bet that had a lot to do with it.

I took the quiz for Jelly. She only has a 54% chance of getting a tapeworm. They never asked the question, "how often do you swallow fleas?"

Something I wondered - are all of the questions they asked relevant to tapeworm transmission? For instance, isn't eating rare pork related to another type of parasite infection (trichinosis)?

I'm sure Christina can clear this up for me. :)

I eat raw fish and meat and I've been to a 3rd world country, and my dog *is* a flea magnet. I'm doomed.

Well, I once caught a rodent in my house It was a cute furry mouse, that my bf liked to keep as a house-pet. We decided to release it outside, it took three steps when a cat appeared out of nothing and ate it

Is it normal that a low score on a tapeworm quiz would convince me that I need to get out and experience the world more?

28%.

Probably the "still mooing" answer that really kicked up my chances.

And the rodents I've seen in my house come in in my cat's mouth. Sigh. She's such a good kitty, always bringing home fresh meat .

Theres a 20% chance that I have a tapeworm. Pretty low considering that I have a tapeworm in formaldehyde in the basement. Then I took the sexual experience quiz. Then I told my wife that I had some catching up to do. Then she stuffed a dead tapeworm down my throat.
