Quiz Description

READ CAREFULLY: EXPERIMENTAL FORMAT HERE, FOLKS!

Welcome to my latest venture into experimental formats. Below are 12 general knowledge trivia questions, all of which have multiple correct answers. However, this quiz will be as much an exercise in game theory as it will in testing your penchant for retaining useless facts. Here's how the quiz will work:

1. As stated above, there are multiple "correct" answers for each question.

2. If one particular "correct" answer accounts for >50% of the total "correct" answers, only that one response receives points.

3. In contrast, if no one answer has a clear majority, the most infrequent "correct" answers will receive points up to 50% (including ties) of the total "correct" responses.

So....want to play a game?
