Oh, how frustrating - I have completely missed a question before now by scrolling through too eagerly.

Why was today's quiz billed as Difficult? To me, the one who makes the top ten once every third day with a score of 9 or 8, this was a piece of cake and I scored 10 and quickly by my standards along with Lizzy.

Heck, I'll take it.

That's what a lot of 9's are from. I miss the first question because I never saw it.

Sometimes all the questions just fit into your knowledge bank. I often get caught out by sports, US history (getting better on that) and movies but others seem to be really good at those. I think Mikelincs and you as our hosts have chosen a good balance of subjects so we all have chances of more and less challenging days, thank you!

I second the kudos to our hosts! It really is pot luck on the topics -- especially as we don't all get the same questions. I often find myself getting a ten on the science and technology day, which makes no sense as I believe I know nothing under that category, and blowing it on history day, which is a subject I love! But don't ask me a question about cartoons, cereals, or TV sitcoms -- I haven't a clue!

Today was a bad day, genuinely didn't know two, and second guessed another, I must always go with my first thought. I love animals and Science and Technology, have had dogs, several, cats, guinea pigs, as a kid, rabbits, many, many, of them, several breeds as well. but I used to show and judge both Dogs and Rabbits.

I would if I could, my bumbling bee. You're getting just a bit too good at this and often nudge me out of the 10th spot this month.

And probably the only thing I remember from Latin class is the verse generations of students had written in the textbooks: Latin is a language, as dead as dead can be, it killed the ancient Romans, and now it's killing me. (Well, that and how to decline amo.)
