I gotta speed up a little - the time-thing is killing me.

You??? Your still number one or right up there close. I've tried reading faster and I make mistakes by misreading, but my time is still 30 seconds or more than yours.

OK. I aced it today in 97 seconds.

That's the first time I've aced it and the first time I've been under a 100 seconds. I must be getting better at this.

It's also the closest to speed reading that I can get. I was going so fast my eyeball have scorch marks on them.

Those on notebooks and laptops must be at a disadvantage with the built-in mouse. I play the Trivias on my desktop.

Yep, no scroll wheel on my laptop, plus a smaller screen than my desktop it does take me longer.
8 right today and one I had right and changed it, the other I thought on to much and talked myself right out of the right answer.

I missed the soccer question. It was after my time in the UK and I guessed wrong.

Hey DS, you whipped through the thing today!!!!

Indeed! And it cost me a missed question. I'm going to go back to a slightly slower pace and try to keep the accuracy up.

OK. I aced it but in a really slow time. My excuse is a very large Scotch and a shared bottle of wine. That tends to make me read very slowly. You think of your own excuse.
