Jeopardy Kicked My Ass
I said here before that I registered to take the Jeopardy Online Test. I took it last night, and the title of my blog sums up my experience perfectly. I have a newfound respect for the contestants. I consider myself a fairly intelligent guy, but in this test, I felt like Forest Gump. I took 20 questions, and I'm lucky if I got a third of them right. You get 50 questions in all, they're Jeopardy-style, and you have 15 seconds to answer each. So you don't have enough time to cheat by going on Google or anything like that. You really have to know your shit. I didn't, and honestly, in all likelihood, I never will. But that's okay though, not all your dreams can come true.
