Quiz Deadline Extended: Try it, You’ll Like It!

Yoda Graph

There seems to be some confusion among the masters about will and its relationship to goal achievement. T.S. Eliot once said, about writers, “For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business.” Yoda, on the other hand, on the question of raising an X-wing fighter out of a swamp with one’s mind, said, “Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.”

My money’s on Eliot. Logically, as the chart above illustrates, one can’t do a damn thing—we’re talking about conscious effort here—unless one tries to do that thing. Probably Yoda realizes the truth, but, confronted with Luke’s incessant whining, was forced to give him a rhetorical kick in the ass. I don’t really know, to be honest. Little guy’s a fucking puppet.

What I’m getting at here is that I want more quizzes! I’ve only got 10 so far. I promise, the next one will be easier. But for now, get the questions you can get, and guess on the rest (friend J. guessed Lion-O and Panthro were Thundarr’s companions). Forget about Eliot and Yoda after all, and embrace the immortal words of Yo Gabba Gabba: “Try it, you’ll like it” [Italics mine].

The Pop Culture Quiz is here.

    I calculate my final score as 12. If I’d gone with me gut and guessed, I’d have gotten 1 and 15 correct, for a grand score of 14. So yeah, you were right. I tried, but my final ranking will decide whether I did, or did not.

    Thundarr/ThunderCats, you should be happy I named two cartoon characters from the same time period. I feel like I deserve 2 points for that.
