All correct today but factoring a quadratic equation slowed me down a bit

Let's just say it is a LONG time since I did them routinely and it took more thinking time on that one question than the other 9 put together. I think part of it was the shock of "What the heck is THAT doing in my quiz!"

LOL, that would be total guesswork territory for me!

Another well deserved top spot for Nutmegger! Well done!

It has been a grim month on the trivia for me. Travelling and answering on my phone hasn't helped, but even without that I think I wouldn't have done much better. New start again tomorrow.

Thank you, lizzyq. After trying to stay in the game during my power outage, I can sympathize with your difficulties -- playing on the phone is very laborious.

But it's a new month -- good luck everyone!

I'm getting really weird results this month, and it's only the 4th. 16 out of 17 wednesday, 1st yesterday, and another rubbish result today, but I disagree with one answer, mainly because I do know a few words in Italian, but not in the other languages they offered, so I answered via the Italian word, and it was correct, but ciao can mean 'hello' and 'goodbye' and apparently the other languages were NOT the answer I gave

I know a bit of Latin and German but cannot converse in any language other than English/American. I really think those type of questions should not be included in any trivia category other than a language category.

Well, kid, thank you for the flower reference. You made me smile this morning.

Ain't got a clue as to the positions but hot damn, yesterday I was #3 and today so far I am #2. Thankfully, I knew my US Presidents and fudged the rest of it.

FYI "salut" is definitely only hello in French which was what put me on the correct track for that question.
