    This could prove to be interesting.

      I managed to get them all, though two were just blind guesses that I happened to get right.

      Does everyone get the same questions?

      We're all getting Dixie-fried.

        Yes. Everyone playing the NEIP tournament will get the same questions.
        I am also playing in the same tournament through a different board but the questions for that tournament are different from the NEIP tournament.

        ETA: Don't forget it is timed as well, so the most right answers will not always beat less right answers if you take too long.

        Basically you lose 1 point per second and 100 points per incorrect answer.

          Well, then I won't mention the questions specifically, other than to say that I guessed completely blindly on the Aussie football question and the one about Englishmen. I only got those right by sheer dumb luck.

            Odd...I got a question about rappers that I got wrong. I wonder if I'm playing the same game!

              I'm pretty sure there was nothing about rappers in my questions. I think we've got different questions going on here.

                Yeah, we did. I just changed the settings so in the future we will all get the same questions each day. Apparently some people "cheat"...as if a dumb random trivia game is important enough to cheat on!

                    I demand an investigation. I'm at 455 seconds only because I lost internet connection. Or was it that someone, perhaps the host of this little party, doesn't like the idea of me doing well, eh? That is pretty sketchy, Philly, sabotaging my attempt. I'm sure that if you could see your own reflection in a mirror that you wouldn't like it. It's the face of an internet quiz cheater. Shame on you.

                      I didn't realize time had anything to do with it. Nice job of laying out the rules Phillywitch.

                          I missed one and had no idea what the question was even asking.
                          Robert Francis O'Rourke, Democrat, White guy, spent ~78 million to defeat, Ted Cruz, Republican immigrant Dark guy …
                          and lost …
                          But the Republicans are racist.

                            So that means all I have to do is register with another email address in IE and take the quiz there first and then quickly click the correct answers in Chrome?

                            Cool!

                              or Opera, or FireFox...

                              I thought of that

                              Problem is, once we all do it, the 'population' of the participants will be triple the membership of NEIP.
