I still say my answer to the last question was *more* correct. (You have to have read the last question to understand my answer choice)

I love how it gets to 99% loaded and then stops! Is this a quiz or a test of patience? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif">

Yeah, that's an unfortunate downside (one I griped about heartily in #avalon last night. ;-) ). It requires Flash, and it takes over your screen. :-P<P>JOSH.<P>------------------

It didn't ask me for anything. I guess I'm up to date? (Me? Up to date? ME??? Pardon me while I sit in confusion for a moment.)<P>Lol. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>I got the oddest questions right, and the ones I thought I knew wrong. Oh well.

I tried opening it in IE and there was no quiz apparent. There were the words CLICK HERE prominent in the middle of the page, but they led to a 404.

Gah! It died on my at question #7. I guess I'll just load it again since I have gotten them all correct so far.

Blast, only 50. I remember the strips with the answers, but not the little details like Pi...

Well, I got a 70, frankly I'm disappointed. :P<P>I didn't quite understand question #10 and I flat out missed question #9. However, I would like to protest the answer to #7 with the following strip.

Besides that fact that it's completely subjective(literal titles) the answer of course is in the strips preceding where you have Alison remarking on the situation.<P>The answer to 10 which I chose the obvious choice(to me anyway, and my answer was wrong), was probably due to the actual physical occurence in the strip. Since that's the number of times that it has made an appearance.<P>-Edited to be more vague.<p>[This message has been edited by Quasispace (edited 11-17-2001).]
