Do you know how to add? I don't.

Since the beginning of the quiz, I've claimed that a perfect score would be 212 points, amended to 213 when I added a point for the first team to hand in a paper in the Speed round.

No one has ever challenged me on this that I can recall.

Yesterday I had an epiphany. 10 + 20 + 31 + 40 + 58 + 60 = 219. Two hundred nineteen, not two hundred thirteen, which is in fact a different number.

The all-time Top Ten Scores List at right has been adjusted accordingly. The scores look slightly less impressive as a result, but we all already knew this was no quiz for punters.

I take a tiny amount of solace in arriving at this on my own, even if it took a couple of years.
