"unfortunately I didn't get half of the bonus questions"

Yes, your standards are slipping LOL Embarassed Laughing

Only kidding, 29 is an amazing score

I sometimes think that by me scoring people it turns it into

some kind of competition, which I don't want it to be,

It's just a bit of intelligent entertainment.
