To repent for not being able to make it to any of this weekend's festivities in person, I made you all a silly little gift: a Metafilter Quiz
. 30 questions, 50 points is a perfect score.
Play it at the meetup! Or in the quiet comfort of your easy chair! The link is at the end of the [more inside].
Some quick notes:
-Googling, Wikipedia-ing or even clicking away from the quiz tab or window is of course
frowned upon with extreme prejudice
strictly forbidden in the interest of sportsmanship.
-I tried to tune the difficulty so that it would be impossible for noobs and a breeze for die-hards. You may well disagree.
-It's perhaps understandably biased towards the last five years or so (when I've been around), but I tried to put some old-timey stuff in there too.
-Correct answers are worth between one and three points, and I tried to sequence the questions so that they very vaguely rise in difficulty. This is of course very arbitrary and subjective.
-Something so inside-baseball-ish as this should of course come with specific feedback and background (and links!) per question, but the free version of ClassMarker (which I used) won't allow it. Perhaps if there is interest we could make a page on the wiki or somewhere where questions and answers are explained.
-If you spot an error of any kind, let me know via MefiMail.
Thank you for everything, Metafilter, and here's to another ten years!
