NBA QUESTIONS

I got another question on minority sport this morning. Fortunately, the correct answer matched where I always put my answer for these really crappy, unfair questions, so i earnted a few points. Whoopee Do, but I did not get ANY KNOWLEDGE from this crappy question. No one in the real world wants to know this rubbish.

Have these people never heard of cricket, both codes of rugby, formula one, moto gp's, speedway, tennis etc etc etc ? Who cares about rounders anyway ?

I'm curious about the phrase the "correct answer
matched where I always put my answer." Where
is that place, or is talking about such things
verboten? I also have a default answer where I
put guesses. It made me a billion points last week.

Or maybe I don't want a discussion lest the
answer randomizer gets changed.

Statistically on multiple guess questions:

The first and last choices are not the correct answer.
The longest choice or the choice with the most qualifiers is the correct answer.

Now, since Sploofus randomly offers the correct and incorrect answers, rather than always offering them in the order the author listed them, most likely the first/last rule doesn't count for much here. I guess some people just have their favorite "guess" number - kind of like wearing their lucky underwear or not washing their socks till the World Series is over.

But the choice with the most qualifiers ALWAYS counts - statistically, at least.

That, and $21.00, will get you a half gallon of Tide detergent.

MAN - went shopping yesterday and I was blown away by how prices have gone up like 30% in the past 3 months!!!!!! I couldn't........oh -

Oh - look - COWS!!!!

If I do not know an answer, then I always select the same number each time for my guess, unless I am sure it is wrong, then I try my second number. At least, doing this, I stand a chance of getting one right now and again

Why don't you opt out of the Sports TQOTD?

I did it because there was too much gridiron or baseball...

I do not opt out of any questions. What is the point, I would just get another USA biassed question about something else.
