I notice they time score to adjust for Google-Fu.

Eupher kicked all our butts.

If I was googling I wouldn't have missed two.  I'm also talking with a friend via instant messenger.

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.

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

I feel I did pretty good considering the amount of alcohol in my system tonight.

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.

Well I sucks.  :rotf:

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:
