There were 11 questions....

//Do I get partial credit for attendance?

Yay, top 10 for a couple of minutes!

Please ignore that. Not that I'll be on the board for ANY length of time anyway, but meh. I just always take the quiz because it's fun, but intentionally pick the wrong answers so I get a goose egg. Only fair, since I know what the answers are already.

But this week, I screwed up, and got one right. So, please don't hurt me. Doesn't count.
 
2013-03-22 05:07:48 PM
Holy shiate that is by far the best I've ever done on one of those.
 
2013-03-22 05:08:57 PM
9 of 11 for 799 and fifth briefly

/*pffffttt* *clink* yea me!!

I scored poorly on this one. I've been working with closer deadlines and obsessing over the details of Civ V: Brave New World. Not so much time dedicated to Fark.

Wait, nevermind I didn't even know there was an easy version. Guess I've been skipping a lot of class.

Well, there's an Easy EASY Quiz, but it's only three questions.

And each question only has one possible answer.

On the upside, there's no timer.
 
2013-03-22 05:23:16 PM
First time I scored in the top ten in both quizzes.  This, of course, shall not stand.

/also first time one of my greenlights made the quiz
//yay

My boss always comes in when I'm halfway through and ruins my score.
 
2013-03-22 05:35:30 PM
9/11 for 801 points, not too shabby for the first time ever doing one of these after being a member for several years if I do say so myself.
 
2013-03-22 05:43:02 PM
scottydoesntknow: Ditto to ivan, MaxxLarge, and Sinto

Genuinely glad to be able to give something back to the Farkommunity.

Wow. I'm slipping. I just said that without any snark or irony. I actually MEANT it. What's WRONG with me?
 
2013-03-22 06:00:44 PM
I read the blurb.
 
2013-03-22 06:07:01 PM
7/11

not as good as last weeks 10/11

but either these are getting easier or being out of TFD has finally got me paying attention
 
2013-03-22 06:15:42 PM

Hoopy Frood: I read the blurb.


haha
 
2013-03-22 06:16:18 PM
Why are you out of TFD, HH?
 
2013-03-22 06:54:34 PM
10 for 11, 70 seconds, 938. Not bad. Not good enough, but not bad. I'll take it.
 
2013-03-22 07:16:32 PM
10 out of 11 for 919.

The Ice Cream seeking Missourian froze me out.

But I'm in the top 10 for a bit. I guess until the heavy hitters come out at about 1am EDT?

Unfreakable: Why are you out of TFD, HH?


Not sure if connection was made.  I miss this one, myself.

Unfreakable: Why are you out of TFD, HH?


The true depth to the answer to this question is really complicated, but it will suffice to say that I'm not staying out on purpose.

Mudgen: I miss this one, myself.


d'aww.

Don't go making it all cuddly and shiat.  You're dry with a twist.

Jeez guys I got off to a great start with the first three correct.  But that middle section was really tough.
