First time I've broken 1000. Thanks to the mods who put the quiz together each week. It's almost as if my procrastination is being rewarded!

This was my first 10/10 on easy. Need to take it one step at a time.

So if you do well on the easy but not on the hard does that mean you're not Farking enough again?

(It correlates to deadline pressure again, which is not surprising...)
 
2012-04-27 06:57:24 PM  
I only got one right and it was the only story that I recognized.

Incidentally, the chance of getting 10 out of 10 guesses wrong on that quiz is a little less than 2%, so that's an achievement, sorta.

Man, it's getting tough out there when you gotta break 1000 points to get into the top 10.
 
2012-04-27 08:02:51 PM  
5 of 11 correct has always been my High School average.

Don'tcha hate it when you know the answer and your stupid finger clicks the wrong answer anyway? Guess I shoulda had a beer first. Oh well, 10 outta 11.
