And if the Hard Quiz was too difficult, try the Easy Quiz

The sick part was that halfway through my phone rang so I just started clicking random answers.
 
2012-05-18 03:24:11 PM
I'm actually in the top 10 for now... probably because only 10 people have taken the quiz?
 
2012-05-18 03:25:45 PM
That would be the first time I've ever hit the top 10.
 
2012-05-18 03:25:50 PM

Fair, not great
 
2012-05-18 03:27:19 PM
Hey Sinto, I appreciate your efforts on writing the quiz this week, but don't you think that might give you an unfair advantage when taking the quiz?
 
2012-05-18 03:27:22 PM
10 out of 11 correct, total points = 914

Sinto 1035

Probably won't last. Lately it seems you need 1000+ to stay in the top 10.

9 out of 11 correct, total points = 825

not a repeat of last week. (Sigh)
 
2012-05-18 03:35:38 PM
5 of 11.... Damn work getting in the way of my viewing the Derp that is FARK....
 
2012-05-18 03:37:51 PM
Well, I got to be on top for a few seconds, which isn't the first time I've said that sentence with some pride and some more regret
 
2012-05-18 03:49:19 PM
I should have gotten #1 right - fell victim to the classic SAT trick of slipping "NOT" into the question, and my overexcited clicker got moving.
 
2012-05-18 04:03:49 PM
Damn, this one was hard.
 
2012-05-18 04:05:32 PM
This is the first time I've ever tried the quiz, it was fun....wish I had done it before. 7 out of 10...over 600 points (forget exactly what)

There are several quizzes still open on the Fark Quiz page, the ones for the last few weeks are still open.
 
2012-05-18 04:17:09 PM
I am excited about
7 out of 11 correct, total points = 605

/yay me!!!!!
 
2012-05-18 04:27:41 PM
10 out of 11 correct, total points = 897.

First time I've ever hit 10 right. *shakes tiny fist* I'll get you one day 11 out of 11.
 
2012-05-18 04:49:51 PM
11 out of 11.... even if I get knocked out of the top 10, I'm still patting myself on the back!
 
2012-05-18 04:54:32 PM
I almost clicked the wrong answer for #7, which would have been bad because I was subby for that article.
 
2012-05-18 05:04:12 PM
...and I've been knocked out of the top 10.

/Oh well.
 
2012-05-18 05:11:56 PM
Apparently, I deserve a raise.
 
2012-05-18 05:19:35 PM
I made it to number 10! I will enjoy this achievement for the next three minutes.

I scored 11 out of 11 but not fast enough I guess.

/can't wait til this week's episode of Wait, Wait. Don't tell me on NPR.
//GF doesn't know I'm a Farker and we're driving during the show.
///Thinks she's smrt.
 
2012-05-18 10:40:00 PM
I think the writers of "Wait,Wait,Don't Tell Me" are using this quiz
 
2012-05-18 10:53:56 PM
Huh, I guessed around 5 of them (forgot already), and ended up with 10/11. I guess I'm starting to get the idea of how weird the news can get, even if I miss the headlines.

MitchellX: I think the writers of "Wait,Wait,Don't Tell Me" are using this quiz


Their show predates our quiz by a long stretch, but I'd be flattered if they ever used any of our questions.
