This quiz has received an Editor's Award for excellent content. Only the most unique and well written quizzes are eligible for this award.

FalseFingerprintsBooksandScreens Photo Fingerprints are the perfect form of identification, right? Well it turns out that since nearly the beginning of using fingerprints in criminal trials, fictional folks have been figuring out how to defeat the clue collectors.
In 1928 S.S. Van Dine eschewed stories featuring “forged fingerprints” in “Twenty Rules for Writing Detective Stories.” Fortunately for this quiz, that advice was occasionally ignored (okay, the rule was occasionally broken).
This quiz focuses upon books, movies, and television episodes that include defeating fingerprint technology as a trope.
So dust off your keys, hit “Start Quiz,” and remember not to leave any other clues behind.

@ another. If you don't like long quizzes, don't take them. That's why KerBlunks were created. This quiz was informative, as well as challenging.

as usual, editors gave award to quiz with questions too long, too convoluted -- which is to be expected from someone who says something is "most unique."

a good quiz although my score reflects my lack of knowledge in this arena.
