Hahaha. I love this place. You dont get into trouble for being a massive geek: you get in trouble for messing with a bell curve.

Haha, my life is not so existent. Actually, I guessed on a few, but I knew most of them. I too was angered by the use of only four rings instead of seven for bananaphone, but I guessed that anyway.

150 exactly, but I should've scored higher.

I read the question and immediately thought "Dramatic cat is dramatic!" Funny thing is, I didn't know this image actually existed until after I got the question wrong.

92, had no idea what half the questions even meant.

I guess that just means the internet's a big place.

Egh, It's been so long since I've seen half of these, and the other half I've never even heard of. And I troll everywhere :\ Poop, I just got one wrong that I knew the answer to, because I didn't think about it for more than half a second. Damn you, pop-rocks. Hell, most of this shit doesn't constitute lulz. I miss less than half, and I got an 81. o.O hmm.

150.
I guessed quite a few, and it shows.

I love how they use "you're IQ" instead of "your IQ" as they congratulate me on my intelligence.

Apparently the people taking this quiz are pretty high? Not as high as my score, though.

If you're taking me too seriously, you probably are making a mistake.

If I say that this is left purposely blank, then the statement contradicts the reality, which is that the sig space was not left blank, but had the words 'This space left purposely blank' in it.

173. I guessed on very few. If I've seen it, I probably remember it. I have a good memory.

Never seen Salad Fingers though. Or the dramatic animal one. I thought it was a drama llama, but that wasn't an option.
