Honk If You Love Taxonomies: Value and Affinity

I'm in a little bit of a tailspin trying to think about What To Do (With My Life); and last night talking to pit crew, I dusted off a few old taxonomies that might be useful for this discussion:

The Munt Scale for Value

0 1 2 3 4 5
BAD NOT GOOD NOT HALF GOOD NOT HALF BAD NOT BAD GOOD

This is for how good you think something is, as opposed to...

The Munt Scale for Affinity

0 1 2 3 4 5
HATE KILE DON'T LOVE DON'T HATE LIKE LOVE

Which is for how much you like something. This affinity scale never quite worked before; but it works now with kile, because... it's best that I don't try to explain why it didn't work, isn't it.

I wish I could promise you that there's a method to my madness, but I fear this is just madness in service of other madness. To be continued!
