Too bad it does not convert the raw score to percentile degenerate you are.

Assuming someone's not an advantage player or a trivia Guru, I could probably accurately convert the the score for them.

Had number 9 been multiple choice I would have probably gotten it wrong depending on what the other answers were. I wasn't really guessing since I knew what they were describing was not correct.

I'm almost certain I wouldn't have known one of the questions had RS_ not use the term at some point for whatever reason.
He may have even asked it as a trivia question at some point.


I've never heard anybody use the question number 2 term ever, I just happened to read about it somewhere in the last couple years.



I knew #2 from from watching westerns. It is an Old West term for a cheater.

I missed #2 and #8. 8/10

10/10.
I remembered an old tv show where they called someone a crossroads. Wasn't sure what it was but knew it was an insult. Rest was easy.

As mentioned, I missed #2 the first time.

For shits and giggles, I took it again. This time I missed #9.

Those are the only T/F questions.

So I知 100% on multiple choice. 🤪

For someoneone who plays blackjack, I'd say yes. Too bad they didn't ask about monkeys. I found the quiz easy, that doesn't mean everyone would. I don't play craps but Little Joe from Kokomo is part of a comedy routine Abbot and Costello did. Some people retain valuable information, some retain fairly useless stuff.

I've only ever heard it a few times and that was many years ago from someone I knew. I only remember it because I thought it was a odd dumb term I didn't like.

The Bishop of Blackjack uses it. Perhaps I should have said anyone who studies blackjack. Back when most BJ games were handheld, people would throw down their blackjack , supposedly snapping them.
Monkey is much more popular.
