Have to kick off the thread with a shout-out to the usual gang. Your quizmasters this week were: Sim Tree, Sinto, phlegmmo, and Do the needful. They made this happen. Thank you.

Lego is a game?

Well, it's definitely  play, and though there aren't any points or "winners" per se, there are rules, but they're more like rules of physics. I would classify it as "toy," but maybe it's a bit like Calvinball.

Hard: 9/11 in way too long.
Easy: 10/10 in 94 seconds, which is probably a little bit too slow to stay on the board.

I was so productive this week I should just take the rest of the day off, but now that the quiz is over, what would be the point?

Oddly enough, I got one question that was a bit confusing. I just flat-out screwed up on the two that I missed. Those two were very well-written. Well-played, quiz creators, well-played. You win this week, quizzinators and productivity. I'll defeat at least one of you next week!

A friend of mine is now hoping to justify his high-end Lego expenditures by telling his wife he's in the senior leagues.

Worst. Showing. Ever.
4/11 :p
 
2013-10-11 04:20:44 PM
3? 

I'm convinced that I'm functionally illiterate and though I'm beginning to wonder about the functional part.

highendmighty: Worst. Showing. Ever.
4/11 :p


high five!  I did far better on the loser's quiz, not that it makes me feel much better.
 
2013-10-11 04:27:04 PM
I did lousy this week AND got nothing done at work. Time to drink lots of beer.

this . too hard. as usual. come on, give us schlubs a break.

For the first time ever, I got 10/10 in Easy Quiz.  In 102 seconds. Knew half of answers and rest I guessed. I may not remain on leader board?  Boo hoo.  Have to go faster next time.  Never came close to perfect on Hard Quiz.  I'm very competitive as you can see.

Back to normal from last week's aberration: 8/11--745.

Thanks quiz-makers.
 
2013-10-11 04:51:51 PM
What is this voodoo . . . I cannot be this high up on the leader boards. That would mean I have no . . . oh wait, that's right. I do have no life. Never mind.
 
2013-10-11 04:58:38 PM
6/11

And what's really surprising is that I had a rather slow week at work.  I can only assume that most of these stories greenlighted after hours.

And LEGO is NOT a game!
 
2013-10-11 05:08:13 PM
9/10 easy, 7/11 hard... and I didn't pay much attention to the Fark headlines this week.
 
2013-10-11 05:11:25 PM
Mild?
 
2013-10-11 05:18:29 PM
I probably could have done better... but I had this weird feeling like there was someone watching over my shoulder the whole time I was taking the quiz... fortunately I didn't have much in the way of brains... so whatever it was left.

Good catch

6 out of 11 correct, total points = 535
Not too badly, considering I guessed on most.
 
2013-10-11 07:24:26 PM
Oh, that was the hard quiz? Where's the easy one?
 
2013-10-11 07:26:16 PM
It would be really cool if we could have some kind of discussion on the questions each week and say only people who have taken the quiz could participate, in order to keep from giving something away inadvertently. I know that there are times when I question my questions and other times I would like to know if people spot something I think is funny. All in the name of better quizzes of course.

Mild inebriation? We can do better than that...

Word.  Or THIS, or whatever.

9 of 11.  I'm number ten!  I'm number ten!  Woooooo yeahhh... me!
