    16/21 hovered around 80% the whole time, not bad IMO since the test is highly physics/astrophysic/gooblegook-centric. Nothing remotely biological in the questions I saw.

    I got 9/13 despite in many cases not having a clue what either title meant. I think their gobbledygook generator is flawed (in particular, it tends to produce overly simple and understandable titles).

    I got 10/10, botched the 11th, and then managed to get a 20/21 before I clicked on the high scores button and accidentally deleted my progress. *doh!*

    Not too shabby for an animator who flunked out of bioscience tech school.

    anything with $ is usually right, and where there are sentences that don’t seem to make any sense, those are usually right as well. The algorithm seeks to make good sentences, which aren’t necessarily what you’d find in articles.

    It’s an entirely different universe – one that has dogs which come in all colors and dogs that don’t look like dogs.

    Not even remotely close to Hawaii, but Haeckel tattoos deserve some kind of shout-out anyway. Or am I stating the obvious here?
