Sod that for a game of soldiers. When I was on question 2, my computer decided that "Fun Trivia is not responding"* and took what felt like several aeons to recover itself, by which time it had forgotten that I'd put the right answer for question 1.

******* computers. [Mad]

* Our computer is rather elderly, and it has a habit of doing such things, although it's never done it in mid-quiz before ... [Roll Eyes]
