THIS... IS... JEOPARDY!!!!

So, I took the Jeopardy Online test on Tuesday. As usual it was seriously hard. And once again I was able to tape it and get the questions. I was unable to make out a couple of words from my video, but I got about 99% of what was there. And if you're interested in seeing how you would have done, check under the cut. Comments will be screened, don't use google or anything, and you get 15 seconds for each question when you take it, so try to keep to that limit.
