Tolkien elf or prescription drug name?


#1

[Read the post]


Used prescription drugs at yard sale
#2

I scored 23; maybe I should have got higher, considering my country was the home of both Tolkien and the National Elf Service.


#3

16 of 30. That was hard!


#4

 20. And yes, the naming scheme is very similar - but I missed prescription elf as option.


#5

I came out about the same. Might as well have been tossing a coin.


#6

Are supposed to click if we’ve taken it before, or just if we know what it is?


#7

27/30.

…I have read The Silmarillion way too many times.


#8

I got a 24, but it would have been a 26, if the webpage didn’t have so many ads that I mis-pressed twice on my iPad. Helps that I’m a pharmacy technician, though there were quite a few drugs I had no clue were drugs, just that they had the right “name feel” for drugs.


#9

23, which I’m quite happy with. It denotes the right amount of passing familiarity with both Lord of the Rings and Prescription drugs, without crying out for an intervention for either.


#10

I scored 18. I suck.


#11

I got 17, which just tells me that it might as well be random, since I definitely knew only a handful, and was equally “pretty sure” about all the rest of my guesses, right or wrong.


#12

I only got 20 too. Some of the elves I recognized, but I don’t think I recognized any of the drug names.


#13

“Silmarillion”

Cuddly and warming in its pronunciation.


#14

I got 23 by oscillating between the choice of elf/drug. The answers weren’t very randomized.


#15

23 out of 30… Not too bad. A fair amount of guessing, mainly based on how I remember Tolkien spelled names.

[ETA] Also, the thing kept hitting on me, between like every 4th or 5th question, or some such. :frowning:


#16

I should try finishing that one of these days… It is good but too much like a history book instead of an adventure tale. I can only read that for so long before getting distracted by some other reading.


#17

Yeah, the names ending in “-il” I generally guessed as Tolkien, though the twin spectres of Gardasil and Vagisil, exiled elf-princesses of ancient Venera, always haunted my every decision.


#18

22, which means I don’t think I need to get a Tolkien intervention.


#19

It hit on me a few times also. I only got 7 in (2 right lol) before I decided I was doing too badly to bother continuing.

Pft. You got over 70% right. Elf-vention, now. :angry:


#20

19 and even if I had read the books I would totally have forgotten all the names by now.
