suck it, trebek
i had the same answer ad mrshellion of "manischewitz" before i realized that i actually knew the answer.

i was very happy taking this quiz, but my glee quickly turned to fury when i saw that many of the questions i thought i had correct were indeed incorrect.

dude this sucks
i think you only make these queezes to make the rest of us feel stupid. i'm always like, "how does he ALWAYS know these answers?" but then i remember that you wrote the quiz, and i feel a little better.

yeah, authorship helps
whil ethere are certainly times i dig for obscure info on a given subject or a twist off an idea, the vast majority of what i am puttin in here is stuff i know, one way or another.
