so that quiz i created on quizyourfriends caused a small amount of confusion, so i thought i would clarify the concept and explain one or two of the obscure answers.

Basically, each question was "offset" by the answers you had to give. The answers to question 1 were actually in the multiple choice area of question 2, the answers to question 2 were in the multiple choice area of question 3, etc. The answer to question 10 was in the multiple choice area of question 1, and i tried to make that question obvious enough that people who knew me would know the answer without actually having to know the question, while at the same time making it obscure enough that maybe they'd think i was asking for my favorite author's age.

The first answer, then was 42. Question 10 was simply: The Answer is: which refers to Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide series.

Question 3 asked which of the following statements are not true?, and the proper answer of the options in question 4 was d). FM stands for "Frequency Modulation", not "Frequency Mode".

Question 4 asked which of the following pairs did not belong together, and the proper answer for of the options in question 5 was B). The pair in A are both creations of Bally/Midway. The pair in C are both creations of Nintendo. The pair in D are both creations of Atari. But in B, Street Fighter II is a game by Capcom and Point Blank 2 is a game by Namco.

My favorite three movies are Memento, The Station Agent, and Unbreakable. None of those have marial arts scenes.

My first screenname was *not* rEoM. rEoM was my third screenname, which was born out of my previous two screennames put together, which accounts for the odd capitalization.

i know that the quiz was mean. i'm surprised that people were able to get even thirty points.

i decided out of boredom to create another one. This one is in a sense easier than the previous one in that it doesn't rely upon knowing Mendel Trivia. On the other hand, it's much more of a mind-frell. The only thing i'll say about it is that it's essential to keep track of one to two levels of preivous answers... both correct and incorrect.

If you're so inclined, feel free to take it. i think it's fun, but i'm a twisted kind of guy. i'm calling it [The "Quiz" Quiz]. Feedback/criticism is welcome.

Well, I like it. I nailed the first 4 no problem. Then I ran into the questions where I needed to be paying attention to the other answers (and options) and remember how they were arranged (in more than a cursory sense), and since I'm was too lazy/eager to do that, I failed. Miserably. Then again, I didn't want to ruin the spirit of it by copy-pasting the answers into textpad as I went..

oh yea, no. 2!
:shakes fist at your bro sitting in the no.1 spot:

damn dude, that was cool, but i certainly wasn't in the right mindset to start. my easily-distracted brain freaked out somewhere there in the middle long enough to drop me to a 'B' status. lame.

still got 80 though, even with a brief moment of retardedness. i guess i'm just that awesome.
