I wasn't sure we were going to have a quiz this week, but the following of your fellow Farkers stepped up and finished it. They spent their own time finding stories and crafting questions for you, so I want to let them know that what they do is appreciated. Thanks to Sinto, phlegmmo, Sim Tree and ivan for doing this every week--and doing it so well.

On a side note, we could use one more person to write 1-2 questions per week. It takes the pressure off everybody else. If you like this quiz and would like to pitch in, please drop me an email today.

I'll try to start helping again.  I have been bad and haven't helped barely at all this year; I love the news quiz so it's only fair I help keep it going.

Everytime I do one of these, I am reminded more and more how much I dont even bother to check the main page anymore.

For shame.

9/10 on Easy and 854, just might hang on because my time was pretty good, but I'll never be announced by Unfreakable because I don't do well on that harder quiz!

/stupid last question grumble grumble
 
2013-07-12 03:43:39 PM
Hard: 10 out of 11 correct, total points = 894 (148 seconds)
Easy: 10 out of 10 correct, total points = 952 (48 seconds)

Well, that's better than I've done in the past two weeks. Not that I've been productive over the past two weeks either. But it's always better to slack off and get a reward for it, than to slack off only to find out on Friday afternoon how little you've learned while slacking off. Thanks again, quizzicians!
 
2013-07-12 03:45:41 PM
617  just outside the top ten
 
2013-07-12 03:49:11 PM
739 - enjoying what will likely be a very brief stay in the top ten.

A lot of the time, the top scores on the Easy Quiz are only marginally off, by fractions of a second. This is what they look like most weeks:

Lucifer'sParalegal 949
FrancoFile 946
Parse 946
suziequzie 944
common sense is an oxymoron 943
caddisfly 941
Oliver Twisted 929
Nunpoo 929
Seussie 927
doofusss 924

First to last, the difference between the top and bottom is just a few seconds; everybody on the list go a perfect 10/10, the only question was how fast they managed it.

Yay, I'm King Sh*t of Quiz Island (at least for a little while). Thanks Sharknado©.

10/11, missed the first question and had a couple of lucky guesses on the rest.
 
2013-07-12 03:55:45 PM
Also, since nobody reads this blurb anymore, I'll just say that last night's live Sharknado thread was the most epic thing I've seen in a while.

I can't believe I missed the Sharknado thread!

Wait, maybe it's still going...

I'd love a hummer while enjoying some nitrous oxide

9/10 809 points

first time taking a Fark quiz. Didn't know they existed but will be doing them going forward.

/Now to go and fail the hard one
 
2013-07-12 04:01:16 PM
Yep, 4/11 for 454 on the hard quiz.
 
2013-07-12 04:01:52 PM
Sharknado?

...You know what, I'm just going to ignore this one.
 
2013-07-12 04:02:03 PM
I scored a 455!  I've never scored above 225 before.  I must've been bored this week and studied the headlines. :P
 
2013-07-12 04:04:42 PM
Pol Pot stickers, now that is funny.

I know you are but what am I?
 
2013-07-12 04:06:44 PM
I got 6/10 but that was some good guessing there Lou.  I think I actually knew two of em.
 
2013-07-12 04:07:17 PM
Menses? Really?
 
2013-07-12 04:08:15 PM
Can I just say that this is one of my favorite Fark things and that I am always excited to break the top ten.  Making #1 the two or three times I have done it is a highlight of my week.
 
2013-07-12 04:26:17 PM
11 of 11 two weeks in a row?  Whiskey celebrations now scheduled for after work...

//I only hit the main page when stumped by code errors... it's been a rough month.

Email sent. I wouldn't mind helping out.

I did bad last week and did not thank the quizzinators; a grievous mistake. So, this week's quizzinators,  Sinto,phlegmmo,Sim Tree andivan and  Unfreakable, to you I say many thanks and may your bottoms flow freely and without constipation nor squirty diarrhea.

It was still going earlier today. However, if you haven't watched the movie yet avoid the thread until afterwards. It's a running commentary of the movie, so spoilers galore.

From what I gather, it's a thing AND a joke.

Yep. Sharknado is a made-for-TV movie from The Asylum (the fine folks who gave us such gems as Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, Mega Piranha, etc.). It aired last night on Syfy and the discussion thread on the Entertainment tab has over 1,100 comments.
