That's a little more comprehensive than the info my meme gives you. But then, I tried to make mine give concise information that the average livejournal user would possibly be interested in.

It's still not nearly as popular as the sitcom meme, though. I guess computer-generated random silly mad-lib style memes are more fun than ones that attempt to give meaningful information.
