Here's an internet flash quiz that's pretty intensely addictive. Never seen it posted on here before- so here it is.

The Impossible Quiz!

Given that it's impossible, why would I try it?
If it isn't impossible, why would I wanna link to a site I can't trust?

Heh, spent an evening working through that one with some friends at college. I have the answers up to a certain point saved somewhere.

It was fun at first, but it became very apparent that it wasn't actually a quiz but more like "guess what I was thinking." That's not cool - I do enough talking to computer programmer as it is.

You can reason your way through some of them. It's annoying because you can get really far, run into a timed question, and then have to start over.

The only one I didn't get so far is smallest. I think there's one other one I always use a skip for. I just really don't get that one. Um, what did I give up on again? Crap, now I'll have to take it again. The color ones were a lot of fun. Also that arithmetic one. What a punk. Okay, 26. Darn, I already forgot where I used my other skip. I think it was right before 26.

I think this quiz is a good way for a woman to know what it's like being a man in a relationship with a woman.
Oh no, it's reloading again. I emailed it to all my siblings.

I hit a real sweet spot once I got past 27, up to 43 or so.

I got up to "hope you remembered" and apparently I don't. Oh, maybe I'll try one more. It's 10 to midnight, is all.

On the smalest, you're looking for the smallest circle, but think outside the box in you circle selection. If you want me to just tell you I can do that too.

Well, I tried thinking outside the box a bit. I clicked the period by the question number and some stuff like that. I also tried rolling around to see if there was a circle invisible to the naked eye, but I usually die before I run out of skips, so I'm fine skipping it. Can't skip the one I'm stuck on.

My favorites so far are Hammer Time and the one about chicken mcnuggets.

Still stuck on those stupid toenails (#82). I have horrible mouse accuracy.

Yeah that one took me awhile.

I really should stop this. It's been like an hour...

Okay, I'm up to the lazer without any skips. That color one was just mean. Well, all of the color ones are pretty mean.

That's one of those ones that is pretty straightforward, in retrospect. I still don't know why I have a few of them right. Like the Werewolf one.

I'm stuck at the end of the world. Where's the giant's eye?

I used a lot of skips between 66 an 75. Well, I'm moving a box of times between each go.

For the 24-7 one, I believe I clicked each answer, and each of them was wrong. [Confused]
It's okay though, I use a skip on that one.

This is so addicting!

Steve,

If you use a laptop, switch to a mouse. That gave me the extra speed I needed.

Armageddon's got me. Grr. I know all the answers are wrong, but I can't figure out what else to do. I've tried clicking meteors, but I'm not sure if I've hit any or not, they move so fast ...

Thats where I am!!!!!

And I am only stuck there because I can't click across the screen fast enough, not because I don't know what to do!
