Darn it, especially as I know never to second guess. I second guessed and the first answer would have been correct.

I got the easy ones! The hard ones I got wrong and I could have used a couple of lucky guesses.

Second guesses always seem to be wrong -- I keep telling myself that, when I second guess, I should automatically revert to the first option. I crashed and burned on my inability to do even the simplest math today!

I didn't second guess, I just guessed wrong! Going back to the quiz I realised that I'd totally misunderstood the question, but had I not, my best guess still would have been wrong. That should be an easy one to remember. It wasn't world trivia either, but a fairly specific geographical question.

I didn't second guess either, I just guessed wrong! Not geographical, more history (sort of) so I'll likely not remember and go wrong again next time.

People are away for the holiday, no need to wait until midnight so might as well just record it now at 12 players and call it a day.

I second guessed the first two answers and got them wrong and would have achieved a 10 if I stayed with my original answer

I learned that tornadoes do suck, but they aren't predictable. I watched a lot of Tornado Hunters but I know better than to argue the point; just try to save it for next time.

You mean you get to see failed attempts?

If I'd known that I'd never answer History and Animals just to confirm how little I know
