Okay, I hope you people are happy. I just went through the video capture of the test and entered all the questions below and those answers I knew, or was mad at myself for not knowing and had to look up.

At best, my score would have been a 19. I might have had some brain freezes or ran out of time on some of them. As I wrote in Online Jeopardy Test thread, I discovered that I couldn't enter any answers with my video capture software going.

In making comments with specific answers, please put them in spoiler tags so that others may enjoy the test.

I knew the answers to 13 of them, which is not very good, but a lot better than I expected I'd do (I was setting the over/under for myself at 0.5).

How long do you have to answer each one? I had a couple of "tip of the tongue" moments where it took me 5-10 seconds to recall the answer. So, while I knew 13, I might not have gotten 13.

Also, our knowledge has almost no overlap. Out of the ones that I knew, only two were ones that you also knew.

Seventeen correct, Book of Daniel was the only guess, got that right, I was absolutely sure about the other sixteen.

Anyone have a good Over/Under Line for Teddys when he sees this? I say 40.

Specifically: 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 14, 21, 22, 24, 26, 27 (I wouldn't have known that had it not been for who his opponent was), 28, 31, 35, 37, 42

All downhill on 43-50, can't believe I don't know 43...

Never mind, eighteen correct, I do know #50, got annoyed and gave up reading after 48...lol

Well, I have twelve confirmed correct, and I am pretty sure I have 2 or 3 other answers correct, but am too lazy to look them up to confirm.
For now, I will take credit for 14 until I get a chance to see the correct answers.

Once again it is confirmed that I need to stick to the High School Jeopardy version.

Thought I got 29 of them right but tringlomane's answers reduced that number to 25.5 and I am sure that the 15 second time limit would have made me miss a few more.

Perdition, that answer is correct for $1,000, and that ends 80's Music, please select a new category.

You don't actually get $1,000, of course...



:(

Oh wait supposed to select a new category. Um let's throw a softball to get others involved. Aviation for 1,000.

I got 15.

I am also the only one to get any question right, as you all failed to answer in the form of a question.

Snoopy alone was a $200 question. :-)

Adding Red Baron's plane upped the question value.

Def a tough test. I was surprised that i got as many as I did. Recent pop culture is now hard for me too. I don't care enough to follow it.

I looked up all the correct answers.

We both had the incorrect answer for 35, corrected below.



Thanks for taking the trouble to look up all the answers. Do you mind if I amend my post to include your answers? Giving you proper credit of course.

I confused Triton with Titan. Damn! I consider astronomy one of my strong subjects too. I owe somebody 25 push-ups for that one. Regarding, the Puritans, I forgot about them. Not to say it isn't right, but didn't they kind of morph into the Quakers?

Puritans are entirely seperate from Quakers, who are entirely seperate from the Amish.

Puritans - Very strict religious and social values. Every single thing was about God, and if you don't agree, then leave. Or we'll hang you.
Amish - Strict. Be humble and lose the pride, because God. Or leave.
Quakers - Laid back. Everyone is one of God's chil'lun and there's a hundred different sects, not unlike modern Christianity.

No problem.

And as for the religious groups. The correct answer persecuted the incorrect answer as alluded to by others.
