I'm wondering: did anybody submit any answers yet? I have tested submitting an answer myself, but I haven't seen any other answers so far and I just want to make sure that there isn't a problem with regular users submitting their answers to the quiz questions.

Scores updated. I've had a lot of good answers for some of the questions (especially 19), but unfortunately, after some examination, I've decided in all cases that not all the questions' criteria were being met.

Well done everyone...
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.

We have noticed that the current Total Quiz is harder than expected.  As a result, to make the Total Quiz more interesting, to foster more participation, and to give all more time to answer the questions, we have decided to extend the Round One deadline to Sunday, April 22nd, 1pm Eastern Standard Time, or 7pm Central European Time.

Strange that no one has attempted numbers 8 and 13.  Both questions are actually not meant to advance to 2nd round!

Why hasn't anyone attempted 8?  It is not a hard question, at least not as hard as some others.
