    I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

    Same old same old for me 8 out of 14. About the same as at school. Seem to have forgotten what little i knew of maths in the first place. Damn you Ms Excel and your convenient formulae.

    7/14 I did it all mentally, and that's still a bit bad considering I just got out of elementary/primary school and got in Algebra in 7th grade...

    Smartarse. I've been trying to find out the results for the teachers but apparently it's only talked about in the documentary and this is part of a teaser for it...

    In your head is impressive. I needed pen and paper for at least half of them.
