Wow I suck even more than usual. That's what I get for neglecting Fark and "working" again.
 
2014-01-31 04:27:37 PM
I'm convinced people must let their alts have a crack at this. The sad thing is I would still suck.

Damn the site slowed way down for me.  Not wanting to accept my answers.

Me, too.  Fark's been doing that a lot lately.  Something on the ad end, I assume.

Hard: 11/11 correct, total points = 1033 (67 seconds)
Easy: 9/10 correct, total points = 814 (97 seconds, and guessed wrong on one of the questions I had trouble with)

/congrats on the 300, quizzyfolk, and congrats in advance to the three who will eventually read those things.

I've done nothing productive but read Fark all week. This is the week, I thought.

Nope. 6/11.

Final Score:
9 out of 11 correct, total points = 845
Total time elapsed:
1 minute (75 seconds)

And I would like to file an objection on the first question I was told I got wrong, because if you Google the "wrong answer" you will see that it is indeed a real thing the military is using.

I wasn't expecting to do well on the Hard quiz, because I never do.  6/11
Despite feeling ill and the room spinning while I'm sitting down, I still scored 8/10 on easy.

Oh wow, I didn't know any of those other things were real. But the quiz technically is on links that appeared here.

I didn't know about the other wrong answer, so I got that one -- when I read the objection, I thought it was deliberate. (The correct answer being the thing that appeared on Fark, in the past week, and with a geographical restriction.)

To reduce false positives, I pre-select "Past week" (or add &tbs=qdr:w to set your google query-date-range to "weekly"). The setting is persistent until you close the tab, so before I open the quiz, I already have a tab open to news.google.com with a 7-day range and have punched in a few random queries into it to make sure it's that any Google-related Javascript has already been loaded/cached in the browser.

My mind's a blur when I take the quiz and I don't remember the wrong answers, so I don't know if this tip could have helped the OP or not, but it may help others in future weeks.

Beat you by ONE point:

Total time elapsed:
1 minute (82 seconds)

Actually, now that I look at it, I'm not sure how I beat you. Maybe I answered one question slightly faster?

I have achieved an unusual result.  I got exactly 814 on both the hard and easy quiz.

//what does it mean?

8      1      4
800 - 100 -400 = 300!!!!!!

It seems crazy but it all fits together... I'm sure it predicts the end times and rapture or something!!!!
