    Goodness, I am WAY behind on my history reading.
    Everiine is a man, and is very manly. This MAN before you is so manly you might as well just gender bend right now, cause he's the manliest man that you ever did see. His manly shape has spurned many women and girlyer men to boughs of fainting. He stands before you in a manly manerific typical man-like outfit which is covered in his manly motto: "I am a man!"

    Pony power all the way, yo. The more Brontaurs the better.

    Looks like the difficulty dial was turned to 11 for that. :o

    Down with "On what date..." questions! Imperial calendar is horrible! *pitchfork
  • KiradaweaKiradawea Member Posts: 1,750 Transcendent
    Question 22 was real tricky, considering that there are two motions back to back at that point. The initial one for 50%, which went 3-4-2 and the one that passed, which went 5-1-3.

    I would've still answered 6-1-2 though.

    Also, since it doesn't show in the list of answers, were they cruel enough to demand the Glomborolum spire be made out of Black Coral, or was Coral a sufficiently accurate answer?

    And do you still have all the answers, since a few of these quiz questions lack the answer.
    Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

    Coal was good enough. IIRC everybody who got points for it answered with coral rather than black coral.
    Any sufficiently advanced pun is indistinguishable from comedy.

    I'm surprised no one got Irshaw Heights or Weeky being a badgerkin though.

    Loads of people got Irshaw. Most of the answers quotes are missing the people who got it right. I think right answers get cleared from the list when the answer is announced, so hard to quote.

    Yes, all the questions should have the correct answers in the spoiler tags, although the questions where I recorded the list of everyone's answers has messier, answer-obscuring formatting thanks to the unique (read: unhelpful) nature of spoiler tags where only the first line is hidden and the rest is plain for all the world to see.

    Sorry for not recording everyone's answers for each question. I only checked ANSWERS intermittently throughout the quiz, and I logged the ones where I thought people gave especially weird or funny responses (e.g., Arcanis not responding at all to the question in which he was specifically named as an event participant). Lots of people did get Irshaw right, although I think only two or three people actually knew Weeky was a badger furrikin. (To my shame, I answered raccoon, and I even do the scholar-empowering quest all the time!)
