And it was not pretty. Don’t think I’ll be a contestant this year either. Some of the questions I knew pretty quickly, but others, definitely not so much. I think there are certain things you HAVE to study and memorize ahead of time, such as:
- U.S. Presidents and when they served
- Periodic Table of Elements
- Flags (Note from Jan 2020: FUCKING HELL, Hobie. You learned nothing!)
- Capital Cities
Other than that, you had better just be fairly well read and versed in plenty of pop culture, literature, politics, and current events. Seriously though, who the hell knows what Tungsten is also known as? (It’s Wolfram).
If I do end up making it though, I will totally flip out.
In other news, I get to go back to the dermatologist. I went in late last year to get some suspicious moles removed. The biopsies came back finally and in one of the specimens, there were troubling cells within. Not cancerous at this point, but certainly something that could become so if left uncared for. So I go back on Tuesday to have it completely cut out. The previous removals were “shavings” so this time it’ll be more intense and likely including stitches and such. I can’t wait.
