Sporcle Friday Fun Fact

Hey everyone,

It’s Friday, and that doesn’t mean we’re still listening to Rebecca Black over and over again, that means it’s time for a quick overview of a feature from Sporcle that you might not know existed. Were you aware that when you are on the results page of any quiz, for example Countries of the World, you can click on the link to any answer and be taken to its Wikipedia page? For example, if you miss an answer and think to yourself “I’ve never even heard of that”, you can get a little more (probably true) background info from Wikipedia.

Remember, all you have to do is click the results link after you complete a quiz, and click on any answer on the results page to find out more info.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I love the Sporcle blog almost as much as Sporcle, but your grammar is killing me. I expect better from uber-nerds! =)

    “It’s” is short for “it is” and should have been used the first two times “its” appears (It IS Friday, so It’s Friday. It IS time, It’s time).

    “Its” is possessive (counter-intuitive, I know) and you used it correctly here – “taken to its Wikipedia page.”

    Considering how people get blasted for this kind of thing when they’re making quizzes, I would hope the bloggers would hold themselves to the same standards =)

  2. Yeah, you nailed me. For some reason the its/it’s thing absolutely gets me every time, and I have a 50/50 shot at it.

    If you see these kind of grammar shenanigans again even if it’s (!?) a Friday don’t hesitate to fire with both barrels from the grammar cannon.
