Special thanks to the people who wrote the quiz this week, and especially busted ass in the last 48 hours:  phlegmmoSinto, and  meow said the dog. You guys absolutely crushed it; on Wednesday I wasn't sure we'd have enough questions to field a quiz. Everybody who enjoys taking this quiz once a week can appreciate the time it takes for them to put it together. Cheers to you guys.

Using a very cromulent extrapolation of the reverse square root of n and the remaining number of crumbs after eating a pound of bacon.

It's speed reading as much as reading comprehension. I usual;ly do pretty well but have broken 1000 only once in all the years the Fark quiz has existed.

Thanks again Farker Quizmods!

I usually don't read the questions. I go straight to the answers read through and try to decide which story I remember. The only problem with doing this is when it's a "which story did not appear this week" question. I've been burned by that several times.

The questions get scrambled, so when he says #10 it could be any of them, but there was one question without a link, because it  was asking:  What announcement did researchers NOT make this week?
 
Two of the items were really studies that Fark linked to, the third was not. So we can't link to what's not there.
