Feel free to post anything unrelated to wet shaving or men's grooming (I.e. cars, watches, pens, leather goods. You know, the finer things of life).

I got 35 right, and it didn't take me more than about 90 seconds. That's the ticket.

That's a nice little quiz. I scored 25.

29/30

Banalities? Jeez.

A high score, looks like, but I've seen these kinds of tests before and it definitely informed my taking of this one. Seems they only have a limited bag of tricks for some of these questions...

Although, the ones that always burn the most time for me are the word scrambles. I hate those things. Never can figure out an efficient search strategy for those. With PARACHUTE I got lucky and managed to see 'CHUTE' right away..

Also, for the fruit count problem, anyone see a way to do that without solving a 2x2 system? The first row got apples, the second row bananas, but then I had to set up a 2x2 system to get cherries and strawberries (which seemed like too much work..)

That's the way I solved it as well bleeding, I'm pretty sure it's the only way.
