Stven, you're way out of touch with the times. You need to phrase your quizzes here in the form of a poll now.... Better yet, get a Facebook account where easily thirty percent of all activity centers on making and taking thematic quizzes!

I think "B" might be the correct answer for each question.

Hmm.... No doubt I should do a Geeklist with each entry being a poll.

I didn't know that about Facebook. That'll give me something to do there if I ever join.

Granted, I am out of touch with the times. It's part of my strategy for maintaining my sanity.

That "would" indeed be easy, but incorrect.

I suppose if I'd realized that polls enumerate automatically I'd have dropped your numbers, not just the letters on the answers....

Wow. How'd you do that? Is there a button somewhere for "Poll"?

Oh, nice Poll #, by the way.

Yes, during your thread editing you now have a green checkmark option between external image and youtube for polls.


The nice thing is that once you have the number, you can embed the poll all over the place just for hell of it, using the [ poll number ] technology....without spaces I'm sure.

Why did you number your poll in multiples of 1.1? And 10.10 should have been 11.... or is this all some sort of software versioning?

Is Spielberg's Duel considered a Road movie? I liked that one a lot.

That was a test to see who would read the note just beyond the poll itself...

See Stven, now you can look at stats to see just what percentage of BGGers aren't really Esther Williams superfans.

I never did well on tests that required reading something at the end of a largish document that I've already read in its entirety. Besides, I was testing you... to... um... well, it's a secret sort of test and I can't tell you what it is without ruining the test.
