Well, are you?

You’ll never believe what happened when Littlefish tested if I was smarter than an 8-year-old

I was just forwarded an IT quiz by the company’s PR team. It appears to be a PR stunt from a managed IT services company, which was labeled “Are you smarter than an 8 year old?” Which, to be fair, is a fantastic headline, primed for going crazy-viral on social media and having a lot of very smart IT people pound their chests. YES! I AM AS SMART AS A CHILD 30 YEARS MY JUNIOR!

Question 1 — A unique question!

Question 2 — That looks anatomically unlikely?

Yes, but not because you were of any help here, mr Quiz.

Question 6 — We live in a post-fact society

Question 8 — You’re getting wormer. Wormer.

Conclusion

So, in this fantastic test where you’re meant to pit your wits against an 8-year-old, who’s the winner? NOBODY, that’s who. Nobody wins, everybody loses, and everyone is just a little bit dumber for having wasted their time on this drivel. Out of the 8 questions, only half of them even make sense. Ugh.
