    Decent time today, but one wrong because I was reading too fast, aiming at a good time.

    I was surprised that the random selection would give me two identical questions in a row; after seeing I got one of them wrong, I realized they weren't actually identical.

    9. What happened in the area we now know as the United States of America between 1775 and 1783?

    The American Revolution
    baseball was invented
    The American Civil War
    all of these answers are correct

    I think this is the first time I've ever made the cumulative score top 10. I'm sinking slowly so I probably won't stay there long but it's nice while it lasts.
    I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.

    It helps to be an obsessive.

    Yes! Play often. I'm still in the running for this game, but I think I'll get knocked out today. Oh well, I'll still come in second for the week.
    It is addictive. It's fun to play against people all over the world.

    I feel silly about missing two days this month already, which guarantees that I'll be out of the top four this month.

    Well...we can't all get 10 every day. I am trying to have a mix of easier and harder questions. We will get to the much hated music catagory soon.

    I actually don't mind the music questions, it's literature that kills me.

    Music does me in. It's all Pop/Rock. I haven't listened to that kind of music since the 1960's. I don't do well in that catagory.

    Actually, it's probably fairer to have really hard questions, because then the results have more to do with knowledge than with speed, as is the case when everyone gets 10s.

    Being knowledgeable can help with getting better times. But so can having a larger monitor so you don't have to scroll as much, or a faster internet connection, or playing more often so that you recognize questions you've answered before and don't have to read the whole thing. Unavoidable advantages given the nature of the game, but not really supposed to be the point.

    Good point. I plan to get back to the General catagory at some point, but not at the level 3. I'm thinking gradually move up to 4, 5 and 6 for really difficult questions. Since we have some new players, I will give everyone the catagories that I have to choose from. Feedback is welcomed.
