Blegh.

I did horrible, even though all I do is hang out on Fark all day.
 
2013-02-08 04:37:20 PM  
778. I'm either getting better at  intuitively understanding the methodology, or I'm spending too much time on Fark.

Of course, I didn't take it this week since I helped, but I really am truly recordbreakingly terrible at these.

Awwww, it's okay. The joy is stumping others who read the headline, and the story, and remember most of it, and STILL get it wrong.

That is my highest ambition.

And this even more: getting Farkers to click on an answer they KNOW is wrong, becuase it's just so much better than the right one.

I got 9 of 11 (wait, isn't that Terry Ryan's number?) and only 77x points, probably for being too slow (170 seconds), but still my better showing this year IIANM

Not bad for me this week, one of the highest I've scored on the hard version:

Hard version:
Final Score: 8 out of 11 correct, total points = 704
Total time elapsed: 2 minutes (129 seconds)

Easy version:
 Final Score: 9 out of 10 correct, total points = 818

Total time elapsed: 1 minute (99 seconds)

And I'm sure this won't last on the top 10 scores list (Easy Version):

That's my absolute favorite thing to do. You had a couple questions this week like that.
