Fair warning. I will be submitting answers for this one as well.

Thanks for running it, Lindsey! These questions look great.

Though I'm sad that you don't want commentary on my answers...

I think most questions will either have decent points for everyone or a ton of aces.

12 entries so far and the current record for Most Number of Aces is 11 out of 20. And it's a two-way tie.

I was making a feeble attempt at humor. I assumed, for the purposes of my statement, that I was one of the people tied for most aces and wrote what might be construed as anti-trash talk to imply that, before the end of the contest, I would have the most aces and would thus take the corresponding award.

Pretty sure it's me with all the aces. This is one of those subjects that I really doubt I would match others on given I tend to answer honestly instead of trying to match the majority.

I do the same thing, why is why I'm firmly in 3rd place just behind the tie.

Yeah, I'm not great at these things, but I don't honestly think I'm one of the tied people. I do try to match the majority.

Y'all are swaying the answers.

I think it would be really easy to get 20 aces, if people were actually trying. But that would be sad.

Just pick Djibouti for every question...except for the one about a romantic spot. That would just be weird.

Copypasta from Shawna. I'm pretty sure I put that somewhere in the rules.
