There's a Facebook app designed specifically for the New York Times to quiz your knowledge of current events. It's typically five questions. I only got a 60, three out of five. Sad. Only works if you have a Facebook account (and who doesn't?). I'm not sure why it's important to know how many full-blown press conferences President Obama has had, but that's one of those I missed. Seems trivial in the extreme. I put answered it was his fourth and the correct answer was the fifth. Sheesh.
Also ... away from a consistent Internet connection for a few days.
