    Fun Trivia contest

    I used to play this on another site I post at...thought it might be fun to start here.

    Basically, you register then answer 10 questions in different categories every day.

    Our Category Schedule:
    Sunday: General Knowledge 3 : Average
    Monday: History 2 : Intermediate
    Tuesday: Music 2 : Intermediate
    Wednesday: Movies 2 : Intermediate
    Thursday: Sports : Baseball : Difficult
    Friday: Science & Technology 2 : Intermediate
    Saturday: Yankees

    What can you win? Nothing but bragging rights here.

    People do not get the same exact questions every day (to eliminate cheating by having someone register with multiple IDs) but over time everyone gets the same questions.

    The categories could be changed if needed. "Yankees" is a custom category, and you can only have one custom category.

    If you're interested, go to:

    http://my.funtrivia.com/tournament/N...via-82555.html

    to sign up and play.

    There are standings based by month, and you can join any time.

    Good luck!

    (I haven't played yet today, if you register and see there are no scores for anyone yet).

    The scoring system...

    1000 points
    - 100 per wrong answer
    - time in second

    So...

    1000 - 300 = 700 - 81 seconds = 619

    Then it ranks you based on that number...easier to see when more people play...

    I got a prescription question and breastfeeding question wrong. Can't blame me for the breastfeeding one.

    7 out of 10 in 93 seconds, good enough for...dead last! I like to think I am a trivia buff but apparently not when it comes to the sciences.

    8/10 in 103 seconds for 696 points. I wasn't sure about a few, but I got them right. Good score considering this will likely be my worst category, other than music maybe.

    I could have very easily only gotten five of those, so don't feel too bad. I'm very interested to see how hard the baseball and Yankees questions are. I hope I remember this tomorrow.

    Score for Tex: 0/10 in 10,000 seconds for a grand total score of a big fat zero.

    That was seriously a joke. Besides the elevator questions, they were all like 5th grade science questions

    New York Yankees :: Yankee Stadium :: Yankees 1980s :: Yankees 2000s :: Yankees 1990s :: Yankees 1970s :: Yankees 1960s :: Red Sox vs. Yankees ::

    So we'll see how that goes...

    OK, I officially suck at science trivia questions.
    Calculating your score..

    Questions correct: 6 / 10
    You took 91 seconds to complete this quiz.
    Total score: 509
    And I didn't even get a breastfeeding question. Maybe I should have...

    I have to learn to answer more quickly.

    But I've got 9 of those coveted trivia bucks, so I'm pretty happy about that.

    And what is the ratio of trivia bucks to Schrute bucks?
