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.

Keith Greer, Unicoi County High School, Erwin, TN
George Walker, East Bay High School, Gibsonton, FL
Dwayne Washburn, Guilford Technical Community College, Greensboro, NC

Were Things Better When They Were Simpler?  

Getting nostalgic about the good old days is easy, but many forget the struggles of the day.

Last month, I purchased a 1982 Chrysler New Yorker for $1,500. The car was previously owned by a technician who was moving to Arizona. It had 67,000 original miles. It would be my “beater with a heater” for this winter.

Under the hood is a 318 V8 with a Lean Burn feedback carburetor with a rudimentary engine control module attached to the air cleaner. The system could adjust the spark advance, change metering in the carburetor and even open a solenoid to vent the evaporative emissions from the fuel tank.
