There are plenty of really fast folks clicking on the mouse. Obviously, the faster you go, the better your score. 'Course, ya gotta answer the question correctly, too.

I remember playing this over at milnet.

Pretty good but you ain't no "E"

I took this quiz the way I took them in college:

1. Read the question
2. Read the question again to make sure you read it right
3. Answer the question
4. Look at the answers to see if any match or an answer better than yours
5. If match or known better answer, select
6. If not, reread and redo 3-5
7. If still no match, skip and return and retry and, if needed, use guess-fu

That slows things down.

Next time, I shoot from the hip

That was the other problem -- I was under-lubricated.  I had just gotten in from a very intense 2-day go-live (we went live).

I am like Johnny Fever -- the more lubrication, the faster I get.

I knew all the answers right away but stumbled through the reading. It was not alcohol or anything. I always stumble throught the reading.  :-)

Like I said, my methodology slows me down.  And some people can read seamlessly while others see words that aren't there (a phenomenon called "semantic inclusion") that match the anticipated sentence instead of the one being read.  This is from a brain that interacts with its environment and engages and anticipates. 

Others are dyslexic -- a 3D brain in a 2D world where the mental rules that hold written syntax together don't attach properly to the process of reading. 

There are many people who suffer from these and some other cognitive difficulties that inhibit and slow the process of reading and comprehending.




The rest are pretty much dumbshits.

Well I took your advice about how to take the test to heart before I started.  :tongue:

However, as much as I'd like to blame you, or the wine, that semantic inclusion thing sounds a lot like me in everyday life. Plus my need to be methodical and competitive for even goofball online test of this sort.  :uhsure:

There are movies that are entertainment and there are movies that are part of our cultural fabric. Casablanca (actually, ALL Bogey films), Peter Pan (and the rest of the Disney "Classic collection -- Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, etc.), the Marx Brrothers, Star Wars IV, etc.











ps: I had to google PP's freaking dog's name.


pps: How many can tell us the name of George Jetson's dog WITHOUT Googling?

Mebbe so, free, but I ain't one to embrace the genre for much more than escapism. One hour, 45 minutes at a whack. Peter freakin' Pan? WTF?

Gimme Samuel L. Jackson in one 'a those Die Hard films. Now THAT'S a part of our cultural experience!  :rotf:

As to your pps above, that would be Astro. (And I didn't look to see if others had responded.)  :tongue:

They should clackity-clack the questions at a constant rate to keep ringers like you from implicitly cheating.

:)

I guess I will have to brush off my old speed reading techniques which I stopped using because they interfered with my enjoyment of reading in general.

I think I'll create a sock puppet to just work on that -- just to see if I can remember how to do it.

It was you!  I am now wondering if it makes sense to do the google for things like #9 today.  My google-fu is pretty good.



Wouldn't that be considered, um.. cheating?


Besides, the less time you take, the better your score anyway. So looking through Google for 10 seconds might screw ya 20 points anyway.

I am trying to determine the threshold -- so far it looks like more correct is better than faster...

As far as "cheating?"  Dunno, there is nothing that says I can't go look it up -- that, I assume, is why the speed of response is part of the total score.
