This quiz is said to be The impossible trivia quiz,only 15% of people pass it! I took it and didn't quite make it to the passing score.

Take it and let me know how you do!

Note to self:you might need to copy & paste the whole link there,I had to put a space in it because it wouldn't let me do longer than 50 charactors.Sorry it's confusing.

You can try using this link:http://tinyurl.com/9c7etlp . Tinyurl works wonders

I shall now embark on attempting this quiz.

I got 3/10... I suppose the odds are that you'll get about 2/10 from randomly guessing, so I think I did alright. Though I'm glad I didn't know the answers to the vast majority of these since that would mean I know wayyyy too much trivial information.

3/10, one of which (butterflies) I know. I've read about jiffies and the e-less book but I couldn't remember what the exact figures are - I got both of those wrong.

Also, you're a trivia genius, BJ. I bet you get a lot of A+es on Braingle's trivia section.

I got 8/10 right, but I, and my dad, are majoy trivia nuts. I only got butterflies & the mammal question wrong, though I disagree with the mammal one. The others I got cuz my sons are motorheads/engineer wannabees/workout nuts. Would not have gotten as many otherwise. And my wife is a workout nut as well, & knows what is attached to what, and where.

I wish I could sleep... but my mind starts to wander, and well, basically, one sheep, two sheep, cow, turtle, duck, Ol McDonald had a farm... HEEEY Macarena!!!

I got 4/10... two that I got wrong I absolutely was convinced I was right... oh well - maybe that's why I don't win Trivial Pursuit very often.

I got 3/10... towering gloriously above the meer 2/10 of random chance.

3/10, I'm proud of myself. BTW, the 3 I got right were questions I researched for 1 vs 100...

Well they all were easily solvable with common sense and some elbow grease, I chose to get four wrong cause I didn't want to look like a nerd. I think 6 is the true perfect score on this test

Note to self: Generally these aren't addressed to other people.

I got 0/10. :] I've never learnt about any of this, but that's fine as I don't intend to go on Jeopardy. Oh, and that e one doesn't make any sense to me, unless it's a trick question. Unless you're talking about words only if they are in an English dictionary. But are you really supposed to know how many instances of "bathe" and similar words there are in there? Removing the e still keeps a word. Plus, if it is a nonsense word in its original language but not in another, does that still count?

Ah, well. I guess I don't know 10 obscure questions and I can't guess well. I'm glad the useless trivia I know I at least enjoy researching. These tidbits, not so much.

Considering the production of the quiz itself, besides the questions themselves, I personally could have done without the memes, and would have preferred explanations fo the answers. That would have made the subject material more interesting rather than having 50 or so strings to press.

6/10

I knew about butterflies, elephants, flying chickens, the strongest muscle, and the temperature, and correctly guessed the number of questions asked by a 4-year-old. I wouldn't have done nearly as well if I hadn't spent so much time researching animal trivia for my quizzes.

LR, the site puts each question on a different page so that in order to take the silly quiz, you'd have to view their ads 20-ish times instead of twice, so they'd earn ad revenue ten times as quickly. It's all about money these days, isn't it?

I got the WD-40, but thought I knew butterflies & am still disputing with the Russian judge about the elephant one...

I got 8/10.

Missed the "jiffy" as I thought it was not a specified amount of time. Also missed the temp as I put 0 when it should have been ***. I did a lot better than I thought I would!

Guess all those nature shows I watch combined with all the strange shows my son watches really helped!
