Ten! Mad about the Northstar and NBC questions, because I SHOULD have gotten them.
A hint-free nine!
I also got a hint-free 9. I refuse to take hints on multiple choice quizzes--I figure I know it or I don't. Or I get a couple lucky guesses. (I had gotten 10 out of 12 on the Pew quiz.)
Hmmmm. Possibly, I didn't make it hard enough this week. Perhaps I didn't pay close enough attention to the news.
4 correct would probably be considered failing. Historically, failing a test has never/would never cause me to ball up in the fetal position.
no hint five...it was plenty hard Bob...
7 - but I got the wall one from the radio - Thanks for the hint bob:)
Hmm, after reading the previously posted scores, my hint-free score of 10 seems downright satisfactory. But then the Bob-O-Meter tells me that I am a "Packer"!! How insulting! It's Friday - be nice, Bob.
7 w/o hints
8/15 same as usual.
Hint-free 10. With at least 4 "swags"
for the record...I would have had six had I listened to the 420 prior to taking the quiz...and I KNEW it was illegal to change lanes in an intersection.
My wife always uses the hints ,so I decides to use them for the first time this week and got 14/15! Though I would contend that it should be 14/14 since the answer provided by your hint for the next 'I' hurricane name (Iota) was not in your list. I even managed to get past the false Lou Dobbs hint. (It led to a story about something else entirely.)
Oh, thanks for catching that. "India" was supposed to be "Iota." Also fixed the incorrect URL for the NBC Nightly News anchor hint. Uploading to server now.
for the record i did not read any of the stories, that the questions were based on-well except for the one on the healthcare bill.
not that it matters
9! Perhaps I was motivated by the challenge that this would be the hardest quiz yet. Perhaps I got lucky. I hadn't heard the story about the muggers in Wisconsin yet. Does that count as a feel good story?
It would count as a feel good story except that a couple of minutes later they found a guy who wasn't a veteran and mugged him.
Thanks for fixing it, Bob. And I finally beat my wife at the News Cut Quiz. I don't think that has ever happened before!
After inspiring my husband to take the hints, I got a 13/15. I would have had 14 without that hurricane question (before you fixed it). But really...we're not competitive or anything. Thanks for increasing our family unity, Bob!
