Detailed Directions: A theme is shared by one of the clues from each column (A-D). Type the clue from column A, then the clue from column B, etc. If you are correct, five boxes will fill in. The boxes in columns A-D will tell you what the letters stand for, and one box in the other column will show you what the common theme is. All Caps are used, and punctuation is excluded to make the game more challenging. Some clues could potentially fit into multiple categories, however the quiz can only be completed by using the clue in the category I have assigned it to. Example: If you type: JFK LBJ FDR W, you will see Kennedy, Johnson, Roosevelt, Bush 43. You will also see their relationship “President Initials in Common Use” under the “initials” category. Good Luck, please comment.

WARNING SPOILERS Notes on bonds and clues: Classification into categories was based on my perspective. The celebrity initials are considered common use in that if you Google them, the first entry is the related celebrity. “W” is only a partial initial, but is in common use. FOX is not the “national broadcasting company” of the U.S., but neither is NBC “Letter G” is used to prevent “G” registering as a correct answer.

What a joke. You expect people to guess things like "Bush 43", "F. Roosevelt" and "Dr. of Philosophy" in those exact words??? Then you didn't spell some of it correctly. You need to add a TON of alternate answers. Absolutely terrible quiz as it is now.

Kballs. Read the instructions. All you have to do is type the 4 abbreviations in order from left to right. The word/words that show up are there to tell you what the abbreviation is for. This is a fairly common format.

I don't get it, but aside from that you have a lot of errors. JFK is an acronym for John Fitzgerald Kennedy, so putting only Kennedy as the answer is just wrong. CIA is Central Intelligence Agency, so accepting only US Intel. or whatever you have is wrong. other things should have alternate answers accepted, like private 1st class should also accept private first class. and OMG should accept oh my god instead of requiring that someone type oh my god/gosh because nobody is going to type that exactly.

KBalls: seriously, read the instructions before criticising! It's pretty clear that what you type in are the letters that are in the columns which THEN makes the full answers come up. Nowhere are you required to type anything resembling the 'exact words'.

You have to understand that people these days are extremely lazy. They see a post that long and just skip over it because they don't feel like reading it, thus they will never know what to do and will leave asinine comments such as the ones above.
