I wonder how many wrong guessers for #8 chose "It's a totally made up word" for the fun of it.

I only knew it wasn't an interrobang! But upon further reflection, it does seem kind of weird that I know what the symbol *means*, but had never in my life heard or even thought of what it might be called.

I am highly disappointed that only 67% knew that Han Solo killed Greedo. I'm just hoping that the other 33% didn't choose Hermione Granger...

I was taught that there is dispute about whether the panda is a bear or raccoon, but the internet says that dispute has been settled in favor of the bear. I also thought an inner bull's eye was worth 100, but apparently I was wrong about that too. It's only 50.

I'm feeling relatively pleased to be among the 8% who didn't know that Spiderman was bitten by a radioactive spider yet among the 39% who can classifiy a tarsier. Better than the other way round methinks. Jetpunk snob.

I think the eastern catholic churches celebrate easter later. The hint would be better if it said 'Roman catholic' instead of 'catholic living in the US'. It's shorter and more correct, as there are probably a few eastern catholics that live in the US.
