Not a brag and I find it odd that people would assume this. Is bragging about your performance on a 5 minute quiz with an anonymous username to a bunch of faceless people on the Internet you don't know something that would occur to you to do? It's not something that would occur to me. I was commenting on the difficulty level of the quiz as constructive critcism, and a means of showing appreciation, directed at the quiz author.

I'm kind of 50/50, to be fair it does sound like constructive criticism, but it's also a bit smug.

Level 64
Apr 22, 2022
The problem with this constructive criticism is that you're a sample size of 1, just because you found it easy doesn't mean others do (for example I thought Heisenberg was one of the easiest questions in the quiz but given only 33% got it right clearly I'm wrong on that). The stats are a far more useful tool to assess a quiz's difficulty than the experience of one user.

Hi, everybody! So glad to have all you people from around the world on Jetpunk, in this huge community of folks pursuing knowledge! Now please accept that it's an American site, created by an American, and that the questions are going to mostly (but by far not all) reflect American culture, and if you can't accept that, go away and make your own quiz site, ok? We'd love to come over there and take some of your quizzes, too!

Sincerely,

all Americans on this site

PacoGee: You should have quit at Haj, the quiz supplied the extra "j" for you. (Another example of not allowing us to complete the spelling of a word; is it any wonder then that so many never get the correct spelling?)

I think "political party" is being a bit generous in a description of Hamas...

"What human rights organization struggled for the rights of a perceived persecuted population in the American South in the late 1800's and early 1900's?" The KKK.

Level 56

"Political party" is also a generous description for most political parties.

Hamas and the KKK were both political organizations in addition to being terrorist groups.

I know this is probably being picky, But Hamlet wasn't just the Prince of Denmark, His Father was also Hamlet and technically he was momentarily a King when he killed Claudius

As any ful no, all answers to the Heisenberg question are possible, it is only when you have typed "Heisenberg" that it becomes correct. Glad to have sorted that one out.

Calling Hamas a political party at this time seems inappropriate, if not inaccurate, given the abhorrent war crimes committed against Israel and their abuse of the people they are supposed to "rule" as human shields.

Hamas is not a political party. It's a terrorist organization.
