Pop Quiz Answers Were Right, Despite What Computer Said

Pop Quiz Answers Were Right, Despite What Computer Said

Luckily, 80 percent is the new 100 percent - well, the CURRENT 100 percent.

Just when you think you’ve seen all the crazy stuff computers can do to screw up a perfectly good Pop Quiz, last week happens.

Despite most of you answering all five questions correct, our computer mainframe decided to ignore one of the answers. Luckily, 80 percent is the new 100 percent – well, the CURRENT 100 percent. Next time we’ll insist to our AI future overlords that every answer be accounted for.

If you’re one of the lucky 10 randomly selected from all the mostly-correct entries, congratulations. You’ll be hearing from us about a $10 McDonald’s gift card. If not, well, there’s always another opportunity!

Here’s the lucky winners for this week.
