It's odd how hard it is to get zero on it sometimes.

these are getting harder.

bring back the No Farker Left Behind era of Unfreakable writing the questions.

These ARE getting harder. Seriously debated trying for a perfect all-wrong until "mendelez". Oh, and

You answered: She was caught on surveillance camera at the club, tipping her daughter
Correct answer: She was caught on surveillance camera at the club, tipping her daughter


You're kidding, right? I was going for the most obviously offensive and wrong answer there.

Better than last week, but still kind of "meh".
 
2012-03-23 04:52:07 PM
i always try these, even though the TFAs that I actually read (Geek tab generally) are rarely included. So it's generally WAGs for me throughout the quiz.

I got 1 right this time. I think my record is 4. cheers

Unfreakable needs backup to ensure that the Weird News Quiz is ongoing. He's got a lot of other stuff on his plate.

It's my fault. I keep submitting farkbacks asking for cupcakes.

2012-03-23 05:32:18 PM

Got three right, which was a bit disappointing. Was hoping for less, but got the last two right.

Unfreakable: Questions this week are courtesy of MaxxLarge...

If you're telling the truth, explain why none of the questions rhyme.

some_beer_drinker: it appears that i have to actually read the articles to get any questions right. who the fark actually reads the articles on here?


That's just it. We all try really hard to write questions based on information from the ARTICLE, and not from the headline. It's not always possible, but it's what we go for, because that's really what we've been asked to do.

So, blame Unfreakable if you must. He may have some assistance WRITING the questions, but they don't go up unless he posts 'em. And he chucks the duds. :)

One of these weeks, one of 'em is going to.

Hey, I have a reputation to maintain...

I was very tempted to do that myself this week, but figured you should go first.

I didn't understand this so I googled and found this (new window) and one of the comments there cracked me up, which was nice. ...TF'r meme that this liter is too lame to understand I assume...

Woot! I scored a 91!!!

I only got one right. Means I haven't spent enough time on Fark. Oh Yeah!

Do a main page search from the last couple days for "dart" and you'll find the Fark thread on it.
