    I found the print view []

    I scored 6 out of 20. I don't care, it's a test of random facts, not a test of skill.

    According to someone who gave me and my housemate a ride home (and some confused looks) after clubbing on Saturday night, we're geeks since we were trying to work out something physicsy from first principles (I don't remember the details) while dressed, essentially, as humanoid robots from the future [].

    It's still just little random facts and trivia. That's not an IQ test. Change the subject from obscure scientists to footballers, from the mechanics of Windows and Linux to bits of cars, and from Heroes to some soap, and you've got exactly the kind of quiz that I would avoid at the local pub.

Information is the inverse of entropy.
