Fantastic quiz! Thanks!

I love the quiz. 10 minutes is not enough, though. There are 64 questions. If I got them all on the first try, 10 minutes is probably more than enough. But if I pass on any, there just isn't enough time to revisit them. Please consider adding more time.

Will definitely add some time. Thanks for the feedback!
