OTOH, my line (thanks to the minions) says "romulan" not "klingon" interpreter

Let's say that I had a good reason not to say a number
I got 16/45 (but don't tell to these guys here!), generally the technical stuff, and random for klingon translations and bill gates' quotes. But I am willing to learn, therefore thanks a lot for the magazine link. I already started reading it from the beginning, and I will read the correct answers too, when I will reach that part. I can't promise I will remember the answers in the future, but reading will be a very interesting activity today!
Thanks again.

Very tough. I was guessing lots & expected ~15 but they said 24. Totally undeserved; the glass of red wine must have helped, it was pretty good. I should try rolling a pair of dice a few times to see how many 12s come up.

After seeing the answers, I was right to 9 questions to which I was sure (technical related, and not those asking differences between processors with 5 digit numbers in their names, which even wikipedia wouldn't know to answer) and I got the other "statistically", that is about 1/4 changes to get right (there are 4 choices, if you select random) in about 36 remaining questions. So, assuming you know a little bit of general stuff, and can answer to at least 5-10 of them right, and do the other random, with a chance of 25% to be right at each, then a score of 18-20, is a "normal", or "average" hit. Even purely random, one should make a score of about 10.

Yes, I know, this pledge is not in my favor
