5 out of 11 correct, total points = 474

So, I'm back to my usual level of mediocrity. It was nice while it lasted.

Quizmasters prefer the payment in BIE. This is the secret which has been said.

Wow there are some strugglings of scores this week.
 
2014-03-14 04:18:25 PM
my score sucked but considering I guessed most of the answers, it was no big surprise.
 
2014-03-14 04:21:52 PM
I'm sure the guys with multiple FARK logins are about to go in as usual and score out their a$$
 
2014-03-14 04:24:35 PM
624. My productivity really sucked this week. Good thing there's nothing going on next Thursday or Friday to continue the trend.

One thing I can say for myself this week:  if I read the article, I have a 1 in 3 chance to get the answer right.

Hard: 6 out of 11 correct, total points = 531 (I LOSE! I GET NOTHING!)
Easy: 10 out of 10 correct, total points = 871 (129 seconds)

Frozen pizza for me. I wasn't that productive this week, but I was obviously taking lousy notes and skipping lots of details. Tripped up on the first question and kept failing harder from there. Observation: I was particularly weak on questions that had fewer details, not more. Fewer details in the question, fewer chances to remember the original story, and more fail. Or more details in the answer, requiring more attention being paid to the farking articles. In any case, well done, quizmasters, I haven't failed that hard in months!

You beat me to the bottom! 1 right. I guessed one right, because my parents called me to chat about it. Which might just be a first.

Wossamatter, OP, you never carried a hod?
 
2014-03-14 09:46:17 PM
dang, pretty grim this week.  I was busy doing other stuff and I wasn't even close to knowing a good number of them, let alone guessing them.

/but i cleaned a lot off my slate this week, should be back to farking for real next week.

//what little farking i did, i spent way too long in the same threads.  got to move around more
