19, fairly pleased but i still can't speel
I didn't know what one of those words meant.
fuck me, i can't even remember properly. I spelt fine, but thought taciturn meant firendly (or something). I actually thought it meant subtle, so i had to kinda guess.
And so I should, given that I write for a living.
Do you think I can put this on my CV?
it can't do any harm, it probably has more value than GCSEs nowadays
IT WAS HARDER WITH THEIR EARLIER STUFF
that the quiz won't even work for me. It just comes up with 'you scored 0/10'
pools panel says 15, internets win
and FUCK THE HYPHEN
this is from 3 years ago.
I'll have another try.
My boss will be so pleased.
now roll on Maths tomorrow :S
it is a few years old this
now THAT is a sentence. And that's a bee! And that's a suction unit!
stupid mistakes. I hate apostrophes
Do I get to write for a living now?
i would be rather worried if i didn't tho
you're not actually clever. because I got it too.
all hail me
Had to guess most of them.
Cathy and Brian winning the lottery, but then splitting it 5:2
WHY STOP THERE CATHY, TAKE THE CHEATING BASTARD FOR EVERY PENNY HE'S GOT
i clicked the wrong button on one. but i'd worked it out right.
it was the laptop one.
Some of them i wouldn't have had a clue without multiple choice
i don't think i've done any algebra since i left school/uni.
but there was one i couldn't really be bothered working out so i took a wrong guess..
you're excuse is invladilated
Which, considering I can't spell my own username properly, is mighty impressive.
just as well considering I make a living from writing BBC billings
how the hell would "I've just found my long lost brother" not have an exclamation mark at the end? of course it fucking would, that question is retarded
but it should definitely have a hymen.
unless you are sadpunk
"i've just bought some beans, cleaned the front room and found my long-lost brother"
Mistook the simile for something else, and didn't get the hyphen
and i'm rubbish at english.
a simile was a kind of metaphor.
except it isn't
One was a bit of a guess though - does 'long lost brother' REALLY need a hyphen?
but at least 5 of those were just lucky guesses :(
The only challenge there was a couple of the synonyms, surely? People really should know all the grammatical stuff.
only cos those are the two i got wrong. still feeling pretty ashamed about that though. i'll claim they teach 'em differently in oz. yeah.
i'm ashamed i couldn't spell fucking necessary.
and the hyphen thing? wankers.
i also got the metaphor one wrong, and for that i feel i must resign from life.
but I guessed what avarice meant
My Editor will be pleased.
I spelt acccommmodation wrongly
