    I did not know that one. Out on 11. The stupid questions about the voice were dumb. I was just lucky to guess they cut to the guy instead of one of the girls.

    I didn't look at the thread topic before reading this post and getting excited about Cardiac being admitted to the Quorum of the 12.

    Ha ha. Doing clinic today and the 1 PM patient, first after lunch, was a few minutes late. A tender mercy!

    I bowed out on 8 or 9. I totally knew the rest.

    Serious question - Are the questions getting easier or are you guys just getting better? I haven't played for months, but back when I was playing it was very unusual for anyone that I knew to get anywhere near Q12, and 8-9 was even pretty rare.

    I think they're just smarter than we are.

    Crap, I should have stayed on! I lost on 8 or 9 (the one about the president winning the Pulitzer).
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    I took a break for several months because the app was too buggy. Seems like its in much better shape now. It seems like the questions are a bit easier. Especially questions 1-5 or 6, which are just cupcakes.

    He said something like “BYU fans will rise and shout...”

    Must have a Mormon helping write his jokes.

    I got to 12 like the third time I played but then didn’t get there again for quite a while. I really don’t think the questions have changed much, possibly in the middle ranges. I think people have adapted to the game somewhat and have more of a feel for question styles. Mainly I think that now you’re hearing from people who’ve played 10-12 times a week for months instead of 10-12 times total.

    I missed the Where's Waldo question - didn't really even understand the question until only a second was left on the clock and I hurriedly selected Germany just to have a chance. I would have missed a couple of others anyway.

    I could have really used that $0.26.

    Out on 9, the architect’s son question. I didn’t understand that Waldo question in time either, Pelado. Got it right on a complete guess.

    I would have guessed (and missed) question 9 as well. Even though I saw a documentary a couple of months ago that talked about the origins of Lincoln Logs.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    You made it further than I did. I went out around Q9. Don't remember what the question was. I didn't know the bulldog one either.

    Plus, Scott Rogowsky is annoying.
