O'Quiz! 


This week's O'Quiz is brutal -- as of this writing, the average score is 3.71 out of 10. Given that pure guesswork would generate an average of 2.5, we know we are dealing with one nasty current events quiz. I noodled my way to a 6, a rare above-average performance for me. You can do better.

Post your scores in the comments. Honestly.

9 out of 10, but I admit to a couple of lucky guesses (and an unlucky one).

7. All my guesses went awry (3,4,6). Oh well- I will rebound next week.

I missed the standard 3,4,6.

Thought I did better until I saw the answers.  

By Anonymous feeblemind, at Tue Mar 30, 09:43:00 AM:

6 for 10. I should have guessed better than I did.  

By Anonymous Marcellino, at Tue Mar 30, 10:10:00 AM:

I got 10 out of 10. Honestly.  

By Anonymous Patrick, at Tue Mar 30, 10:20:00 AM:

8 out of 10 with only one guess, on number 1. Missed the Sarkozy thing, thought that was decided over a year ago.  

By Anonymous JohnP, at Tue Mar 30, 10:32:00 AM:

8 out of 10. Missed #5 Bravo, and #6 M. Malloy (I had that but changed it!) Had to guess #4 but guessed right.

7 out of 10
But like they said; who ever heard of Mike Malloy outside his own household.
And I was positive members of Congress had to be on drugs or alcohol; it's the only explanation that makes any sense.
And can't they pay for Native American child abusers out of casino profits?  

By Blogger StLCard, at Tue Mar 30, 10:56:00 AM:

6 out of 10 and damn lucky to get it ... but then I'd rather be lucky than good any day!

8 of 10!  

By Blogger Philip, at Tue Mar 30, 11:55:00 AM:

I got nine. I answered A&E to ?5 and Bravo turned out to be correct. Go know. The more absurd, the more likely it is to be (politically) correct.  

By Blogger PD Quig, at Tue Mar 30, 12:25:00 PM:

7 out of 10. Missed Bravo, Malloy and Global Warming.  

By Anonymous Joe, at Tue Mar 30, 12:35:00 PM:

Got 8. And, "pure guesswork" would generate an average of 2.0, not 2.5. It's 10 questions with 5 alternatives to each.  

By Anonymous Moonbatcure, at Tue Mar 30, 12:45:00 PM:

9 out of 10. Not bad. I missed on the Bravo question.  

By Anonymous Anonymous, at Tue Mar 30, 12:51:00 PM:

6 for me  

By Blogger Kurt, at Tue Mar 30, 01:03:00 PM:

7 out of 10, and that would have been 8 if I hadn't changed "Mike Malloy" to "Ed Schultz" at the last minute.  

By Anonymous Prufrock, at Tue Mar 30, 01:04:00 PM:

Scored a 6 with only 1 lucky guess.

Now I am really frustrated that do to aggravating my cervical spine damage, have been able to see well enough to spend my normal amount of time reading and then "messaging" the insightful/informative posts into "collections" to that email list of more than 140 VRWC bloggers.

Due to the above, have actually been listening to the cable nets vs vs only tuning in for items of real interest/import.

I've scored 9's before but never this:

Oh dear!! Typos and left out words illustrate just how bad my vision is right now in addition to control by mind of fingers...sigh...

***due to*** Not "do"

***have NOT been able to see***

Could be more, but right now vision so blurry that I cannot tell....sighs & grrrrrrrrs...

7/10

I confused Ed Schultz for Mike Malloy; thought "muslim veils" was too obvious, after the veils-in-school kerfuffle several years ago; and had no idea about ABC's new Sunday host.

Guessed Randi Rhodes based on her priors.

Missed Amanpour's assignment.

Knew shortage of females caused male violence (see China shortly, but did not know the warmists have put their insane oar into this.

8 of 10 with at least one lucky guess and a couple somewhat-informed guesses.

7 for 10. Dang, thought I'd do better with all the reading I've been doing lately.

Missed 6 and 9. Don't watch TV or listen to left-wing radio...that's my excuse.

8 out of 10.

I'm no genius. I do, however, read daily postings from about a dozen reputable right leaning blogs and most of the questions were covered by them in the last few days.

I got a 6 - missing 3,5,6 & 10.

8/10. The only ones I missed were the ones I guessed. Think I better quit quizzing while I'm ahead for a change.
