You're from Tennessee, so yes, it's that hard to believe. Stick to making moonshine and stop taking tests multiple times to get your score up. :D


one of the best universities in the united states is in Tennessee, Vanderbuilt university

moonshine isnt that big in the nashville area where im from


I'm guessing you didn't attend. It's 'Vanderbilt' ;-)

No, that one was simple. I still don't get the foreman/ladder one though.

I thought it was bullshit too mate. I hate that association that 'y' is an honorary vowel. It isn't. That said I did get it right as it was the only plausible answer having worked out the a,e,i,o,u.

>Timminz. Took me a while to understand the question after re-reading it a few times, though it is actually well written. Off the top of my head it was positions 7 & 13 (the first use of the word ladder and the last use of the word foreman) which when added = 20. Next prime going up = 23.

I'm still kicking myself for getting Q1 wrong, coz like a plonker I thought the odds of rolling a 1 with 2 dice = 1:3 and getting a 1 with the 2nd die = 1:6, t/fore = 1:18 (when in fact it's 1:36 to roll snake eyes, doh!). I should have asked Pedro - he rolls 'em all the time. And I got the one-legged woman wrong even though I knew the root, but thinking 'cut' I went for a slab of meat. And the last one I got wrong coz I couldn't see a question (thought that was part of the trick) and picked the first answer (forgotten the word already) as it had two syllables when all the others had three so I thought it was the odd one out. 17/20. Not too shabby. Was a good quiz.

How were positions determined? I counted letters from the start of the sentence, since it worked for the example. Got 25 and 22.

Where the words came in the sequence. I think it gave 'falls' as 10, i.e. it was 10th word in the sentence(s).

Ah. The 'f' in falls was also the tenth letter of its sentence.

The way this reads (sounds) reminded me of that old joke.

Customer (asking repeatedly): "Oh, and a nice piece of haddock for my dinner"
Fishmonger: "I'm sorry madam, but for the third time of explaining, we have no H-A-D-D-O-C-F-K"
Customer: "But there's no 'F' in 'haddock'!"
Fishmonger: "Exactly madam - and that's what I've been trying to tell you"

You don't seem to be able to keep it. Every time I look you're a Major or a Colonel. :P

[quote"pedro"]I mean, how hard can it be to keep a captains rank? It's not rocket science.[/quote]

Indeed. However, setting it as a meaningful, worthwhile objective, takes pure stupidity. Assuming the score is an indication of intelligence, takes even more.

The score and intelligence, certainly in my personal experience, are on an inverse scale...the more time and energy I put into increasing it, the stupider I am.
Only when I abandon any care in the world for the score, is my decision making and intelligence in any way acceptable.

It is as you say easy to achieve a captains rank, and I would argue much higher than that, however, it takes real intelligence to realize not doing so, is probably the smarter choice.

Ive gone up past 3K several times, always to have fun crashing back down, occasionally to 1200ish...where even I must draw the line. It is not this crash that indicates my intelligence is suffering, but the rise back up afterwards. After maintaining the number one spot on another site for well over 6 months, and knowing full well I could have just held it infinitely, or at least for the last years, I have very much learned how ridiculous the score really is. It is fun, it can be rewarding, and I don't necessarily even regret some of the time I put into achieving higher scores, but I certainly can say that it was not intelligent to do so....again...on a purely personal level.

Im sure your case is different though. You seem to have it all figured out. ;)

I'm pretty sure the answer to this question is no; however, if the answer is yes, then note that my answer can be ignored given that my score equates to a low intelligence.

I'm also not good at Super Mario Kart.

I'm guessing that it's an inverse relationship.
