Here we go, once again! It's the second non-annual Mid-Majority Finals Week. The test is 40 questions long, 10 each in four sections: History (today), Geography (Wed.), Mathematics (Thu.) and Bracketology (Fri.). You'll have 24 hours from the postmark of each message (roughly 7:15 PM Eastern... this is a night class, you know) to complete each portion of the test. Answers will be collected Saturday night, winners will be notified on Sunday, and we'll make the proper announcements in Monday's Boubacar.
What are you playing for? The top three in the class (ties will be broken with an essay question) will get a stuffed Bally, which squeaks when you bounce him. You'll be one of only, like, 10 people in the world to have one. Until mass production hits, of course.
Unlike last time, we have a web form for you to fill out. Put your e-mail address in the top line, and fill out your answers. Tomorrow, enter your same e-mail address and do it again, and so on. Don't worry, nobody else has the same e-mail address as you, so you'll get proper credit for each day's answers. If you try to fill the form out twice, it'll only count your first answer. No multiple choice, no cheating, but plenty of Googling. Like in 2004, I can't stop you from doing that.
After the jump, pencils up.
