Wow, I think I pay attention pretty well, but that was hard. I only got 6/15, and half of those were sheer dumb luck.
Wow a lucky 8....
8/15, and 2 of them I only got correct because I just heard the answers on a podcast I was listening to.
My excuse? I was at UND all week.
9, with a couple of lucky guesses. I could have done better, but I've been too busy writing comments to read everything. ;)
11! Don't think I've ever done that well on the Quiz.
11. Pretty good here, too
You know what we need to do? Create a treasure chest of junk you win at the STate Fair (but don't really want), and then each week -- or whenever I get around to doing this thing -- compete to win one of them.
I scored a "St. Urho."
While I had not heard which Democrat did not vote for soon to be Justice K, when I saw Ben Nelson's name on the list, it was a no-brainer.
Wow. 14/15, using only one hint.
Maybe I should call in to Wait Wait...
9/15 no hints...one of my better quiz scores, I'm ashamed to admit...thanks for the Vikings question Bob, I was flagging at the moment and my confidence was bolstered.
I see my coworker has already taken the quiz. Now I face a dilemma. I can call him on wasting time at work by taking the quiz, but then I'd have to admit my rather dismal showing of 7 (bad second guessing did me in - that and an apparent lack of faith in the good students of Mankato).
12/15 with no hints.
10/15 with no hints but a bit of WAG. Love the idea of State Fair prizes, Bob.
11/15 -- my worst score in a long time. You know that any sports questions are my weak spot.
I have some SPAM frisbees, pork tattoos, and a John Deer hat for the prize collection.
Purposefully waited until Saturday to take the quiz so that I was fully rested and prepared. No luck. ¡Sólo siete lo correcto!
9/15 with no hints
I would have been here more often but I was computer-less for part of the week. I cracked the screen on the 2 week-old laptop that we got to replace our old laptop. I shattered the screen of that one last month. I hope this wins for most creative. Can it be most creative if it is most true? As they say, you can't make this stuff up.
\\SPAM frisbees, pork tattoos, and a John Deer hat...
What kind of prizes are those? We can get all that and a pickle hat in just a few weeks. I can't wait for the fair!
11 out of 15. Should have been 12 but I didn't read one of the questions all the way to the end. (MN Forward question, saw Best Buy, selected Best Buy.)
I wonder if Gus Ferrotte has ever been the answer to a quiz question before?
Gus has never been the answer to anything.
