One quick note: This is probably the last quiz for y'all, I've enjoyed doing it but it's a struggle to get it out every week, and while darkhorse23 and CaptainWes are writing great questions, there's no backup. I love this thing, but I don't have time to invest in this anymore if they get busy, and nobody else has stepped up to offer help to either of them. So in the future, during weeks like this one where they both get pretty busy with things, it just won't come out.

If you've had fun with these and want to be a part of it, let me know.

I only got one right. I suck.
 
2012-02-24 05:55:57 PM
3/11. I obviously need to pay closer attention.

Thanks for the work on these Unfreakable
 
2012-02-24 05:58:48 PM
Awww, I'll miss biatching about my low score every week.

I'd volunteer to help but judging by the fact I routinely am only getting two or three right each week, I clearly don't read enough main page to manage it.

Thanks for making them all this time, though.
 
2012-02-24 05:58:50 PM
Awww, that's too bad. I enjoy them, but I don't think I read enough of the actual news stories to be any help. Otherwise I'd love to.
 
2012-02-24 06:01:46 PM
See? 3/11, lol

(that said, if you think I can still help make these things happen, EIP, glad to try)
 
2012-02-24 06:13:49 PM
My life is a bit too busy and unpredictable right now for me to make a commitment to the weird news quiz, otherwise I would love to help. If things change I will shoot you an email.
 
2012-02-24 06:19:38 PM
446 on the hard quiz, 912 on the easy one.
 
2012-02-24 06:22:41 PM
8/11. I actually remembered two of them after the fact.

suziequzie 736
RocketRod 716

stainedglassdoll 540
Tziva 539
corgic 534
WI241TH 506

That score will not stand long when the liters get a hold of it.
 
2012-02-24 06:35:48 PM
I finally cracked the top 10. But yeah, probably won't last long.

Thanks for the work Unfreakable. Had no idea how the Quiz came to be. Surely Drew can hire some unemployed Farker . . . pay him with Heineken . . . . just brainstorming.

463 - What a terrible way to go out.
846 on the easy one, but who cares about the easy one?

Sorry to see them go. Sometimes I click on ones I know are wrong just because I wish they'd been real headlines.

I don't usually do so well, but I always have a good time playing. Cracked the top ten for probably 3-4 minutes, for the very first time!!

Since Lootie has been kicked outta the Photoshop contests, he should have lots of time. Maybe he can be recruited to help out.

Thanks for all your work Unfreakable. It's been great fun!
 
2012-02-24 06:49:53 PM

Um, are you having a seizure?
 
2012-02-24 07:11:24 PM
hate to see you go, love to watch you leave
 
2012-02-24 07:12:44 PM
So, when does the paywall go up?
 
2012-02-24 07:13:16 PM
aw man...this was the reason I'd come here on fridays when I was "working from home."
 
2012-02-24 07:16:10 PM
I only discovered these quizes last week.

Like so many things I've discovered and loved briefly, this too will be taken from me.
 
2012-02-24 07:23:26 PM
I can't bring myself to take it this week.

- In quiz mourning. Thanks for all the work y'all put into this stuff.
 
2012-02-24 07:31:43 PM
7/11 and this is my first Fark News Quiz.

I heard most of the stories on NPR though, not Fark....
 
2012-02-24 07:34:59 PM
Thanks, Unfreakable.
 
2012-02-24 07:37:02 PM
If ever Fark is looking to hire a writer to compose these things I would be happy too. All I ask is a fair wage and being able to live in Drew's whiskey cellar
 
2012-02-24 07:41:01 PM
Let it die. Move on. I sucked every week even when I was here all the time. Nobody cares...
 
2012-02-24 07:42:19 PM
I would love to help, but my schedule is so inconsistent that I know I wouldn't follow through.

Thanks for your work on this and other stuff, though.
 
2012-02-24 07:43:14 PM
I just clicked on answers, reading nothing and got 5/10.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: I just clicked on answers, reading nothing and got 5/10.


Did you fancy yourself as "intense" while you did it?

DING!

ONE OF ONE CORRECT! PERFECT SCORE!

Unfreakable:

Thank you Unfreakable, darkhorse23, CaptainWes, and anyone else who helped to put these together.

I've enjoyed them, even though I usually suck. If there was a Fark Knowledge Academy, I would be riding the short bus.
 
2012-02-24 07:54:32 PM
A couple people have emailed me to possibly volunteer to write questions. So if they come through, those of you that like this will still get to see it on Fridays (and those of you that hate it will still be troubled with it on your Fark).
 
2012-02-24 07:56:21 PM
I cant post news items, but if I could it would be:
"If Abe Vigoda were still alive, he would be 91 today"
 
2012-02-24 08:36:46 PM
To all who have contributed... Thank you. I have really enjoyed these.

2012-02-24 09:09:55 PM
Subby,
Thank you for your efforts. Every week I would look forward to see just how dismal I would do.
And I enjoyed every second of it.
 
2012-02-24 09:17:56 PM
At least some news related to these three may possibly be considered?
