Won another $40, and an ecobee 4 for $145.

Won $100 tonight. So up to $330 on prizes. Plus another $200 of Amazon net credit, plus $110 for reselling. So, $640 total. Not bad.

Made $20 on an item, $660 total. They stopped using Amazon (or at least for the last few things I bought).

$867. But I just read an article about people getting their Amazon accounts banned for returning too many items, so I think I'm done doing that.

Want to see how dumb people are? Play this game.

Over 11K people just answered that Marie Curie won the Heisman Trophy twice...

Wow.

I haven't quite figured out why there are so many wrong answers on questions 1-3 or 4. My guesses are:
- bots
- accidentally hit wrong button (this has happened to me)
- non-english speakers
- kids
- not trying

And I guess for completeness there could be people actually that stupid

Well, I should have won last night, but I spaced out and clicked too late on the final answer. Missed out on $5 (on trivia)

$5 more on guessing, plus $180 on a drone I bought + resold. Kinda wanted to keep it, but it was a $1,000 drone package, and I really cannot justify it.

Up to $1,112

~2400 accts got the wrong answers on Q1, each bad answer.

The terrible answer in Q2 got ~1200.

I think someone has 7200 bots that just pick randomly.

If I had a bot army, I'd try to mix it up with human assistance, like give the bots 4-5s for a human to answer, and if not, pick randomly

What's worse is they, literally, asked that question 30 minutes prior and showed the answer.

They had a technical glitch and restarted the game after that 30 minutes with the same question and MORE people missed it the second time.

The other night even the host, Scott, stopped to marvel at how many people missed the first, crazy easy question.

I know some of them are simply not paying attention (I've missed a Q1 before cuz I forgot HQ was on and just hit a button)... And 1% of people not paying attention isn't unreasonable, but I wonder about bots.
