Anyone else taking the online qualifying test for Jeopardy tonight?

I'm hoping they include some questions from Celeberty Jeopardy on SNL.

More details? Thanks!

Alex Trebek: "So, Raisor, I hear you've won several very prestigious awards. Care to tell us more about them?"

No. Maybe I should!

More details? Thanks!

Depends on what time zone you live in, not sure when the deadline is.

I'm getting in a late, 30 minute cram session right now.

Ken Jennings is going down.

I think I hurt my brain.

I probably got 5 out of 50 questions right.

Sorry to hear that...was it the same test for everyone? What was on it?

Time already passed. Thanks though! :)

I knew 8 or 9 questions, took educated guesses at 5 or 6 more, and sat there dumbfounded for 15 seconds at the other 35.

I'm just not as smart as I look, apparently.

I took the test last year and thought I did really well at the time. I didn't hear anything for months and months, however, and forgot all about it. Then, at the beginning of November, I received an email saying I had passed and inviting me to an interview in Pittsburgh on December 7.

Unfortunately, my capstone presentation for my Master's was also on December 7 (I checked, and there was no way around it), so I had to opt out.

I had planned to take the test again last night, but when I went to the site to register I discovered that if you are invited to an interview, you have to wait 18 months to retake the test.

Maybe next year.

Clearly, your priorities are out of whack.

Just finished. Harder than I thought, but I still feel like I got half.

Was thinking the same thing. There would be a streak where I was clueless, then a streak where I would nail 5 in a row. Hope it was enough.

I did get a chuckle out of: "Former Senator George Mitchell recently concluded an investigation into this"

I thought the same thing. Sounds like the tests were the same then.

I'm more of a Wheel of Fortune guy. The new one, Are you smarter than a 5th grader has some appeal to me as well................

They should have since you're a celebrity.

I was always hoping they would do one Celebrity Jeoprady with Ferrell as both Trebek and Bush. I know they would have had to do it taped but I think it would have been hilarious.

In that case, give this (http://www.fox.com/areyousmarter/features/) a try. I'm proud to say that I am in fact at least as smart as a fifth grader.

I did it too, but I have to say, those were easier questions than I see at times on the TV show when I watch it with the kids. They usually have a couple of real curveballs in there, the type you learned in grade school and instantly forgot and haven't had cause to remember since.

"I'll take the penis mightier for 400."

It appears that Burt Reynolds has changed his name to "Turd Ferguson."
