It was stupid-friendly. I can't find 5 answers to monetize in most of the quizzes. And most don't seem to be WAG-friendly either. I can only deploy the Nurse Nancy and Meryl Streep defaults so many times. But I do want to support the quizmasters and possibly learn something, and at least be entertained, so thanks for the chances.

yeah, thanks for that. i was hoping to trade that brain cell for Crispus Attucks, but nogo. Now you have to cope with the Sargasso Sea. Which is funny because it has 'ass' in it :lol:

but then again...if you mean low due in regards to moneyed questions since there will be a lot of right answers, then i guess that could be accurate

Drop what you're doing and go play Stupid Answers!
Well, that was interesting to grade. 30/114 players missed the first question:

James VI of Scotland became the first Stuart monarch to rule England and Ireland when he took the throne in 1603 under what name?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh man, I agonized over that call. I went with the 3 variants from the British Museum website:

1.1 The terms most frequently used are Elgin Marbles, Parthenon marbles, and the British Museum’s preferred term, Parthenon sculptures, or sculptures of the Parthenon.

It's a flawed question. Shoot me. ;)
