I took my test last night. Much harder than I thought it would be, and the 15 seconds they give you for each question sounds like a lot, but when you're trying to recall a name or other fact, believe me, its not.

Needless to say, I'm not expecting a call from Trebec anytime soon.

They still do live tours of cities every spring I think.

I did okay on mine but probably not enough to warrant any kind of contact. 15 secs does seem long; but you have to see the category, then read the answer, then think about the question and finally type it if you know it.

One of my answers was supposed to be 'The Lovely Bones' and I am pretty sure I typed 'The Lovely Boner' by accident since the clock was around 2 seconds.

    • Dude! That guy was awesome! I need to look him up now. I really got out of American Idol after McCreery won. He's somewhat local and all but I don't think he deserved that W.  None of the idols really do much anymore except the country ones IIRC. I think that speaks a bit towards the genericness of pop music and culture.  They need to have a version for each genre.
