    This time, I got 35. (I should have gotten 36, because "guilt" is a correct spelling of the word "gillt"; but the dumb program only accepted "gilt" as the correct answer..:grumpy:)

    I got 33 on my first try and then 41 on my second, but it is a bit of a stupid program. It really does come down to how fast you can get through the first part. If you get longer words in the first part then you will naturally do it slower and get a lower score. Also sometimes you accidentally hit the wrong one when trying to do it too quick.

    It also comes down to interpretation as well. Like how arildno thought it was referring to guilt instead of gilt, so people can get the wrong answer based on their interpretation.

    Overall, it's silly :biggrin:

    I got 30 first try and felt quite good then I looked at the high scores pfffttt!

    gilt and guilt are different things
    guilt is as in guilty
    gilt is as in having the deep slightly brownish color of gold

    smilies aren't clickable????????????

    Welcome back *kia*! :smile:
    Yeah, smilies are clickable for almost everyone but I think you have my problem. Clear your browser, perhaps your problem would be tackled.

    I did but it didn't work for me!:cry:


    :rofl: :rofl: You're right! I just got tired after answering to the first questions and left it. But of course before going to get a rest, I posted here for you! :tongue2:

    I was hoping there was a third part after seeing arildno's score :smile:

    Trial 1: 28

    Trial 2: 36

    Stupid program doesn't recognize "esophagus" as a correct spelling. (mutter grumble "proper english" mutter grumble.)

    It's a Brit game. I think they spell it 'aesophagus'.

    They said oesophagus.

    Good scores, Gokul.

    Yeah I guess that will also determine your score as well. If you use American spellings then you're going to get a lower score. Tough luck on the oesophagus one though 'cause I think that (esophagus) is unfortunately the most common way of spelling it now.

    Yes, that's it. That's how it was spelt in my high school bio text as well. Long time, no see...:redface:

    Tried 5 more times, but just can't beat 47. When I try to go fast, I end up clicking the wrong word accidentally.
