(Fark)   So it rained all day, you got the A/C on full blast, Junior's mowing the lawn because there's no way you're going out in that humidity - sounds like a good time to take the Fark Weird News Quiz   ( fark.com) divider line

Last week's winners:

No 1000 club members this time. As your quizmaster, I shall sit on my throne and consume smoked pork ribs and cheap draft beer alone this week. And might I add the slow-cooked sauce is rather meaty and spicy without being overly salty.

Bear151556 took first this week with 941, followed by zerkalo in second with 935. Denjiro nabbed third with a respectable 897, foo monkey in fourth with 876 and little big man in fifth with 863. Congrats to our top 5, but the ribs are too good and I have none left to share.

The easiest question on this week's quiz was on the number one reason that home ownership is declining. Who wants to loan someone $200k for a home when they're already in debt up to their eyeballs on a loan that the majority of people can't pay off, and that can't be discharged in bankruptcy? Yes, it is indeed student loans that keep most of the newest generation from home ownership. A not insignificant number of people will be discussing retirement while still paying some of their earnings each month for that time Snooki came to their their University to discuss reality TV. Preparation for life, people.

The hardest question on this week's quiz was on how Americans like their steaks. FiveThirtyEight took a years' worth of Longhorn Steakhouse receipts and found that while most Americans don't order their steaks the perfection that is Medium Rare, a plurality of people aren't too off-base and do order them Medium.

On the Easy Quiz, the easiest question was on what arts & crafts store was caught illegally importing Mesopotamian artifacts. A whopping 95% of quiztakers knew that Hobby Lobby owners saw no problem with breaking laws against smuggling, presumably because the tablets they were importing didn't mention women's health care.

The hardest question this week was surprisingly on the demographics of sports viewership. Only 29% of quiztakers knew that Women's Tennis is the only major sport broadcast in North America in which the average viewer age went younger from previous years. It seems that sports fans are all getting older, except those who wanted to catch a peek at Venus Williams' pink bra strap.

As always, thanks for taking the quiz, and please comment below with your thoughts on ground turkey meat in tacos.

It rained all day and you're mowing the grass? There's a great idea.

You're right, going outside and mowing the grass is a horrible idea. Making Junior do it, however...

I, for one, love the Del Taco Turkey Tacos. As a matter of fact I had a regular one a few weeks ago, by accident,  and couldn't even finish half. So I guess what I am saying is yes to turkey in tacos if it's from a fast food chain.

Was it 106 miles to Chicago? Did you have a full tank of gas? Did you have a half pack of cigarettes? Was it dark and were you wearing sunglasses?
 
2017-07-15 10:04:14 PM  
I'm in the top ten!!!
Of course, not many have taken it yet.

With enough seasoning, even the crap Taco Bell passes off for ground beef would taste the same as turkey.

/steak chalupa FTW.

This is the drunkest I've ever been while taking the Fark quiz. So I am inordinately proud of my 398 score. That's, like, almost 2/5 of a perfect score.  Which, if converted to decimals might be my BAC. I'm not sure, too drunk to math anymore.  Whooooo!  In your face sober, test-taking suckaaaahs!!
Go beer!

Tofu is turkey that was smart enough not to be planted in the middle of the road.
