Who else here HATES those on-line job applications?

I have just recently moved from Atlanta to Savannah, so I have been looking around for a job to help me pay bills while in school, but the job applications themselves are more pain than anything, especially the Unicru applications that many of the "big box" companies are using now. I am more than happy to give them job references and what not, but are the inane questions that they ask really going to help the personel department's job easier? The worst of these questionairres was from the Petsmart application: there were 33 pages, each with 5 or 6 questions, ranging from "Are you happy with your life?" to "did you ever feel like commiting suicide in high school?" to others asking are you neat or tidy etc. If someone could give me a valid reason why they would ask those questions, I'd like to hear it.
