Sly, it probably takes me 33 seconds in total just reading the questions, before even reading the multiple choice answers (and deciding which to pick).

When you read a book, are you like Johnny 5 in Short Circuit?

Pretty much :lol:

In the same quiz on the football site I post on I got a time of 28 seconds yesterday :o

Honestly, though, it's more that having done it for so long I recognise some of the questions, while others I skim enough of to know I know the answer before getting to the end.
My face is tired.

Bloody movie questions. 5/10, and mainly through guess-fu, I know jack about bloody films and actors.

It seems to be the only main category I'm consistently good at.

I do love 50s/60s movies though, so I guess I retain a lot of obscure stuff about actors/directors of that era.

Godammit, I got the lightbulb question wrong. I could swear the answer I put was correct though...

That felt more like an 'Easier' batch of questions today, rather than intermediate.

AFAIK the difficulties are determined by the number of people who have got them right vs wrong, ie the more people fail a question it goes up into a harder category, while the more who get one right it moves down into an easier one (probably why the more difficult literature questions seem to almost exclusively be Shakespeare related!)...

I guess for whatever reason a sizeable % of people have gotten those questions wrong.

I wonder if, and this is with the greatest respect to our American friends, world history is perhaps more difficult in general for american users of the site - and this skews the calculation a bit.

What may seem easy for us might be obscure to them?
