Geography is my weakest, as well. I know just about every country's flag from a stupid matching game I used to play, but move away from shapes and colors into words -- words with... spelling, and I'm atrocious.

That said, I got 9/10 today, but it was mostly luck!

:eek:

10/10 is excellent, Jami, but the 39 seconds just kills me. A lot of times, I haven't even read to question 7-8 by then! Great job and thanks for playing!

As much of a burnout as I am, I'm still a really fast reader. Just don't ask me to do math in my head because it's not going to happen.

I got the first five, and then proceeded to tank on the last five.

7/10 today. Would have been 8 but I stopped one question after "Virtually leveled during World War II..." and picked Dresden. Instead it was asking about a city with one of the largest gothic Cathedrals (Cologne). Oh well. The other two I missed were South American questions that I don't feel bad about missing. Still managed 44 seconds despite using the trackpad- had I known I was going that fast I might've been able to make an educated guess on one of the late South American Qs. That was fun. I'll definitely start playing consistently again.

My history is pretty shabby too. The ones I got right I knew the answers to, and two of them were about literature, so I got those no prob! When is the book day again??

8/10! Although to be fair, I guessed on 4 and picked one just because I was born that year.

Ouch, that was brutal! That's a good strategy, Frex, lol. Tomorrow is literature day, Cashy. And no math Mondays! Although it would probably be easier than today was. :(

I got a phone call right as I was finishing the quiz. Ended up adding 6 minutes to my time.

9/10 streak continues, and I second guessed myself on the missed Stephen King one

One time my computer froze while I was in the middle of it but I went back to see if they would let me take it again and they did so I was like cool! But they never stopped the time clock so my time ended up being like 6000 seconds, lol.
