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

Also, after reading your answer for #13, I still don't get it. Is there a mistake there or am I just being dense?

I think his answers wrong. I'm guessing its meant to be the Panama Canal or at least that would have been my answer.

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.

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.
