So Apple TV decided to go with the "let's try to make the audience make the commercials" promotional model for their new movie "Luck". For some reason, they thought it would be a good idea to try to make a "toast drop challenge", in which people would record themselves dropping a piece of jelly toast from above their head to see if lands jelly side up or jelly side down, indicating whether or not they would have a lucky day.

I don't think they thought this one through. As any college-level physics student can tell you, the introduction of any spin at all is going to make it more likely that the heavier jelly side will end up on the bottom. And as anyone who has ever accidentally dropped their jelly toast before can tell you, it's always going to land jelly side down. So why have people do something that's in all odds tell them that they're going to have an unlucky day, and associate this with your kids movie?

And why waste jelly toast? Needless to say this promo went over about as well as jelly toast on the floor. But your Apple TV subscription is still active after you binged "Severance" and you're waiting on the new season of "Ted Lasso" so it's there you're probably going to watch it with your kid anyhow. No wonder they spent so little on marketing.

Anyway, tale the Quiz and come back and tell us how you did and what you consider the proper jelly for breakfast toast.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues.

Huh, I'm briefly #1. Cool. Only other guy on the list was ox, though.

Whoa... I only have a 2 point difference in the scores on my hard and easy quizzes. That's skill, right there.

/it's a coincidence

Heh, Tiki Cat.
Does that mean I'm not the only one that goes, "Oh! Those cans are fun. I bet that tastes good?"
I like to think my cat knows the Tiki Cat cans are a treat. Not a fresh fish or grouse treat, but like the cat equivalent of Mc D's.

I dislike it when I shop for a product that isn't for me and I'm forced to rely on marketing pizazz to make my choice. I'm like a racoon - flashy and shiny trumps all.

I dunno, I buy the cheap stuff and I figure if she's hungry enough she'll eat it, and as long as she stays healthy it's all good. Treats are chicken scraps, except I swear the neighbor's cat can smell them from several hundred yards away and it will come steal them if I don't stand guard with a squirt gun.

I liked the stance on taxing billionaires in the instructions.

I also agree that we should tax billionaires.

But what's with the periods being used instead of commas?

Probably a typo. If you can be a little more specific, I can hopefully fix it.

I'm never sure if doing well on this is good or bad.

Pretty much every question that needed a comma had a period instead.

I've been over every question and I only found one instance. I fixed it.

There are a few questions that have periods because making it a single sentence made it too convoluted, so I wrote it as two sentences.
