After having forgotten many weeks, I remembered to check out this week's O'Quiz. Oops. I scored a pathetic 4 out of 10, below even the then average score for the week of 4.71. I am obviously spending too much time adding to GDP instead of cruising the internets.

Post your no doubt superior scores in the comments below.

Guess I watch Fox more than most. I got 8 out of 10. Didn't do that well when I was in school more than 50 years ago! Kappy in the Rio Dulce

7/10. Luck played a role.

8 of 19 avg. 4.97

But, question 4 on which candidate raised the most cash from Wall Street (O'Reilly said Romney) contradicts TH's immediately preceding post.

I saw that as well, JLW III. I suspect that it may have something to do with the breadth the definition of "Wall Street." The WaPo seemed to include all finance, including private equity and hedge fund guys. Not sure what the O'Quiz was relying on, but I know the guy who writes it and can find out.

Page 1 of NYT last week:

Romney Beating Obama in a Fight for Wall St. Cash

"Mitt Romney has raised far more money than Mr. Obama this year from the firms that have been among Wall Street’s top sources of donations for the two candidates."

8/10. Don't read The Slimes, and like the smartest president evah, I consider Honduras as one of our 57 states.

Clearly, I am not reading enough fiction.

An off week for me, too. Only 5 out of 10. And I thought I made some pretty good guesses, too!

8 out of 10, guess I've been watching too much news

8 of 10, only one guess, lol.

I got a 9 on the latest one. Who would have thunk that we'd remove references to Islam in national security training materials? In hindsight it was the obvious choice.

Usually I suck at these. I have narrow interests. On this one it helped that I'm a Yankee fan and have a personal collection of over 100 Barbie dolls.
