    Take quiz: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/07/25/style/emoji-quiz.html

    NYT: “A guy just asked me out in emoji [wineglass] + [boy-boy faces] + [?],” a friend told me, when I asked if she thought we had reached an emoji tipping point. “We carried on an emoji-only conversation for about 45 minutes.”

    In their short life, emoji managed to find an exceptional cultural range: One Internet wit put out an emoji translation of Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love,” and an emoji-only version of “Moby Dick,” called “Emoji Dick,” was recently accepted into the Library of Congress.

    There is emoji for when you don’t really know what to say, but don’t want to be rude by not responding [Thumbs up], and for when you just don’t really want to respond at all. “I love emoji because I don’t like to make small talk,” one woman said. There are emoji sequences to express real-life concepts, too. “In the wake of the Hobby Lobby ruling,” said Caroline McCarthy, a start-up consultant, “I created an emoji sequence for ‘vasectomy.’ ” It was: [scissors], [eggplant], [screaming face].

    I got an 8 and I don't know shit about this crap. Multiple choice always makes a test easier.

    Sometimes multiple choice is like that but in the fire academy all the choices are similar to each other so it makes it hard because it is almost like trick questions. I can't belive they have stuff out now that is all emoticons.
