    Ever have one of those days when you just need like a half-dose of Lothlorien™ (street name=Mirkwood) to get to sleep? Well friend, you’re not alone—I, too, could occasionally benefit from a little over-the-counter Tolkien at bedtime, to ease my troubled mind… If you have any idea what I’m talking about, you’re ready to take the Antidepressants or Tolkien Quiz. It’s short, it’s funny, surprisingly hard, and what else are you doing with the next four minutes of your life?

    (And to the extent that you do well on this quiz you are literally a sad nerd—I got 17 out of 24, so, I maybe?)
