Hit about 30/50 correct, passed on a dozen or so, went totally wrong on a handful, and answered "my aunt Steve" on the choreographer one. I figured you can't go into tryouts as a Jennings killer, so be upper-middle of the pack. Maybe that fits what they're looking for.

Oh, and I had this playing in the background to get me pumped: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG2_kpSYxXI

Or you can take the test tonight or tomorrow. Since I work at night, I take the Thursday 11 PM test.

Took the Central test....zero sports questions, maybe one history question and slow-ass internet limited my Google/Wikipedia cheating but think I still did OK. Don't know if it was good enough to get invited to an audition, but we'll see.

You should eat a bag of dicks for cheating on an online jeopardy test. Just sayin.

Thank you for your service, though.

What is the point of doing that? Your family and friends will watch you get housed on TV?

Did you read the rules? That was Rule # 2 below "don't cheat."

If you can pull off online research and get a response together within the 15 second time limit then you sir are a better man than I.

Not that hard if you can touch-type (luckily I learned that in 4th grade) and have a fast internet connection. Just keep Google and Wikipedia open in a different window.

First time I took the online test a few years ago I didn't cheat and there was a ton of opera/ballet type questions. The actual show (and hopefully the tryout) tends to have a larger proportion of shit I actually know about--sports, history, geography, politics, and random assorted trivia. And if it makes you guys feel any better, it didn't even really help me that much this time around--got 2 answers from it and lost 1 correct response by doing it (had a guess but wanted to confirm, my guess was correct but I wasn't able to click back over and enter it in time)
