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.

yclinder: glad to know we're thinning out the herd.

niels: it is constructive criticism. I'm very sorry you are not smart enough to understand this. It is showing appreciation to the quiz author. If I didn't take the quiz, I would not leave a comment. When I make quizzes myself, as I often do, I appreciate the comments people leave me. It shows me that someone took the quiz and were inspired to respond. I like getting comments about what people found challenging or easy and why. It's helpful. I have no idea who you are and COULDNT POSSIBLY CARE LESS about what you think of me. I don't recall ever seeing your name on this site before and imagine if I ever see it again I won't remember this exchange. You have to be some kind of narcissistic maladjusted psychopath to believe that people leave comments here just to brag. If this is the first thing that occurs to you when you read a comment like what I typed above, then our brains do not work the same way.

If you don't care to read my comments, PLEASE DON'T. I can give you a long list of other activities you are welcome to enjoy that don't involve reading comments on this quiz site. They include things like... playing hacky sack in the middle of a busy interstate freeway.. and.. base jumping without a parachute. If you need a comprehensive list let me know. Very happy to help in any way I can.

Could you please add me to your list of narcissistic maladjusted psycopath list? I also thought you were bragging and sadly not the first time. But that's ok, kalbahamut.

I've never once bragged about anything on this site. Seriously I think you people are nuts. I could not possibly care less what any one of you think of me or how impressed you are with my performance on any given quiz. I regularly post to quizzes that I did poorly on sharing the fact that I did poorly. Why would I do that if I wanted to impress you? It would be pretty simple to lie.

Kalbahamut is the only profile I've clicked on just to have his name in purple and find it quickly in the comment section, his contribution is always interesting: it is either a fact I had never had knowledge of, or him bragging and then insulting whoever points out he is bragging.

Still, his comments are always the most interesting, by far

Considering he COULDN'T POSSIBLY CARE LESS about what people think of him, he posts an awful lot of comments about how much he knows, how good he is etc, and how much he doesn't care about the faceless "audience" he enjoys. I admit, it is often interesting to read what he has googled and regurgitated for us.

Ecce do you not realize how sad it is that you've been posting attacks against me every chance you get now for literally close to a year? I mean this is from last March but I am constantly noticing new ones. I don't care what you think of me honestly. But you seem to think that posting means that someone would care. And you post a lot. By your own reasoning you must care an awful lot what people here think of you. And you post almost exclusively to attack me. Not joking, for literally months, maybe over a year, every time I see any comment from you it's like 80% of the time some personal insult directed at me. And that doesn't make you look good. So... I'm just thinking about you.

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.

It is safe to say that on this American site, the word football probably refers to American football. There is nothing wrong with referring to American football as football. If it is European football, then look for the word soccer to be used.

I'm English, but watched some American football on Channel 4 in the 80's, so knew that Heisman Trophy is a good guide to the dominant players of the following decade. As for 'what is college football' or 'who cares', I'd judge that it is to NFL what Championship football is to Premiership, La Ligament, Serie A, Bundesliga, etc. I did feel the quiz was a little too easy. 2:38 to spare.

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

I'm just putting my two pennies worth (or should I say two cents worth) in whilst I am here - I did not get the college football answer, however, I am not offended that it was asked. I have now learned something I did not know. That is the main reason I take these quizzes - to acquire knowledge on subjects I am not familiar with. Admittedly I highly doubt I will ever need to use my newly-acquired Heisman knowledge ever again in my life (except maybe on another quiz on this site) but you never know...

I knew Heisman only because of the controversy over O. J. Simpson's now belonging to the Goldman family. But seriously, given some of the

the outrageous comments made on some of these quizzes, I find it hilarious that the one thing you attack Kalbahamut for is an innocent remark he made about to how quickly he competed this quiz. Get real!

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.
