    Dude, I just saw this...wtf.

    Good game but how do you know people weren't busy looking up the answers so they could post? neutral

  10. DJ Funktual profile image85
    DJ Funktualposted 9 years ago

    Sorry, kpfingaz but due to the utter lack of response, I didn't think it really mattered. 

    Not to mention, if you were looking up the answers, then you cheated anyway.  I just wanted to see what people came up with off the top of their head and no one played. 

    i just figured people thought it was too self-promotional so i just blew it off.


    Would you like to play again?  I have tons of questions.
