Wait, you think I have gone a little off the deep end with that title post, don't you? No, that is just what I scored on the Quiz of the week's news on BBC!! WHAT! You don't look at the BBC and you don't know the Quiz of the week's news?!! I look at it every Friday. I am usually RUBBISH at it (as they say in England) but I find it amusing. And in the scoring, they usually tie it in with one of the questions. This week, there was a question about the new elements added to the PeriodicTable.
It's the Magazine's weekly news quiz - a chance to prove to yourself and others that you have been paying attention to what's been going on over the past seven days.
There you see, that is what the quiz says before you take the test. It USED to say something like this...
"a chance to prove to yourself and others that you have better things to do than SWOT UP on what has been going on over the past week."(There, does anybody else remember this wording...I miss it!!)
Anyway, I have a link for you because you KNOW you want to take the quiz, right? The link to the quiz is just here!
Now, I just know you will love seeing the giant puddle which went viral! And wait until you learn of the new healthy food for 2016! If you only score 0-3, you will be UNUNREMARKABILIUM, which is my score!
The elements are not named just yet but for now the tempoary names - ununtriuum, ununpentium, ununseptium and ununoctium are based on the atomic number of each - 113, 115, 117 and 118.
(There are strict rules about the proper naming of elements- they may only be named after a mythological concept, a mineral, a place or country, a property or a scientist.)
If you get all seven questions on this quiz, you are UNUNIMPROVABLIUM.
If you get 4-6 correct, you are UNUNKNOCKABLIUM.
And remember my score, I only had two correct, so I am UNUNREMARKABLIUM! That's okay, I have been called worse!
Hey, I have been under the weather this week, so I am dong very well to do all I have done this week, let alone getting any answers correctly on this quiz! Hope to be back soon and able to visit all your lovely blogs!
Just looked at my photos from January of last year and this is the stack of my Daddy's firewood! I hope you are impressed at how perfectly he has this stacked! And he has the same this year too. Stay warm! You know my Dad will!
