    In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.

    I managed to get 39, but it allowed multiple guesses. If not for that I would have probably had about 32.

    You guys are scary. I only got 31 and that was with frantic typing and multiple guesses for some, and the fact that the context of the quiz made some of the answers obvious. Those who missed some for spelling, do you mean you spelled it a bunch of times and still didn't get it? I'd have missed several if I had to spell it right on the first shot. Just curious is some people's browsers were acting differently.

    There was like 15minutes on the quiz timer for me, I don't get the running out of time or frantic typing. Did I play it wrong somehow?
