My pitiful 806 won't last long.

1028- 72 seconds... that should hold.

7 out of 11 correct, total points = 648

Mediocre as usual.
 
2014-01-10 02:13:57 PM  
Hard: 9 out of 11 correct, total points = 846 (94 seconds) NOPE!
Easy: 9 out of 10 correct, total points = 856 (53 seconds) Denied!

Hmph. I genuinely thought I knew 'em all, but nope and nope and nope. Well, XXXXX productivity anyways!

(And thanks again for the quiz. Even when I do manage to get something useful done during the week, the quiz is still fun, so I've got that going for me, which is nice, because I certainly don't feel like I was productive this week...)

LAUGHTER OFAIL one of these questions has the answer that might or might not have the accuracy depending on the manner in which you read the article as I believe there are two interpretations of the written prosimity. I also do the credit taking for the wording of this but will say that there is the 100% guarantee that the other answer is most certainly that which lacks accuracy so do not do the biatching. Also have the best of lucking!

oh, and that's 11/11.

A week? 2 days of cold. Sure it was cold, but it's 54 degrees out there now.

7 out of 11

I was distracted by a meatball.
 
2014-01-10 03:16:53 PM  
11 out of 11 correct, total points = 958

Total time elapsed:
2 minutes (142 seconds)

My first perfect score. I took my time and many were pure guesses.
I've been on a bad luck streak over the last month (in life), let's hope that this is a sign of better times to come.

Sometimes it's the small victories...

Final Score:

Respectable. I thought I'd do worse.
 
2014-01-10 03:31:46 PM  
I did miserably. I'll have to waste far more time on FARK to have any chance of success next week.

harleyquinnical: Bleh..
Hard score - 279

It looks like we are having the same week:

Hard -  3 out of 11 correct, total points = 282

Easy -  9 out of 10 correct, total points = 835
 
2014-01-10 03:55:02 PM  
7... not bad, considering my scores have improved since they installed a public Wi-Fi hotspot right outside my office. I hope my boss isn't reading this.
 
2014-01-10 04:03:50 PM  
7 out of 11     the worst I ever did.

Diogenes: 7 out of 11 correct, total points = 648

Mediocre as usual.

///are they made from real girl scouts?

I continue to run in the middle of the pack, both here on Fark and also on Slate with their Ken Jennings quiz

Dammit.  My best week in months and everyone destroyed it.
