Via File 770’s roundup of links for the day, in the number (11) spot, we find that:
1. Vox Day cited an online vocabulary test as evidence of his brains, reporting a score of 30150
2. Mike Glyer naturally zipped off to take the same quiz (hey, could *you* resist?) and also got a score of 30150
3. I couldn’t resist either, so I can tell you that apparently the top score is 30325, because that’s the score I got and according to Glyer, he and Vox Day only missed one, so I guess I got them all.
I’m sure you are now curious about this quiz, so here it is. It’s a synonym/antonym test that starts off super easy and does not, in my opinion, get very difficult. There are fifty items. I will add that I only knew “avulse” because of a knack for remembering medical terms. And a stronger knack for taxonomy, but one rarely encounters “Perissodactyla” on a vocabulary quiz, so that wasn’t useful here.
