I'm going to blame my perpetual bad scores on this.  It makes me sound too important to do well, rather than just that I'm shiat at these things.

I feel attacked by the fact that you feel attacked, and the fact that you are sharing feelings on the internet.

/also, 650

Man, I'm slippin' these days. I don't even have the excuse of being excessively medicated, at least not for a few more hours, and not unless beer counts as medication. Well-played quizzinators. I clearly need to start studying moar and productivitying less. Or to stop wearing pants on Fridays. That might also help, although I think studying moar is probably the less-disturbing option.

I'm all about the sackcloth this week.
 
2014-08-22 03:21:40 PM  
Once again, I blame using a touchscreen for one I got wrong. Then, while I'm at it, I might as well blame it for the three I didn't know and got wrong.
 
2014-08-22 03:23:24 PM  
no questions about Ferguson, Mo?  those were 90% of the threads this week... go ahead ask me something about Ferguson.
 
2014-08-22 03:32:45 PM  
No questions regarding the new rules/misogyny thread?

Jesus Christ Supertard: No questions regarding the new rules/misogyny thread?


Generally they're questions about articles, not the threads. Although administrative articles aren't particularly off limits if there's a clever factoid in one.


Sofa King Smart: no questions about Ferguson, Mo?  those were 90% of the threads this week... go ahead ask me something about Ferguson.


Similarly, the questions need to be phrased as a fact in A/B/C format so meta-questions that rely on details from multiple different articles wouldn't really work in that format. But again, if there's a clever factoid in one in particular, it might evolve into a question.

OK, here's a question based on a meta thread instead of a regular thread.

Of the modmins who posted in the misogyny thread, the hottest profile pic involves

(a) A woman folded in half
(b) Rainbow Brite
(c) Beer
