I had discovered that "trick" of getting them all right, but didn't want to use it because I wanted to earn the trophy for 100% at least one month without feeling like I cheated to do so. (Alternatively, it's just as easy to search the quizzes or forums for most of the answer. Again, I avoided that for me personally.)

For the sake of getting points, it really doesn't matter how many we get wrong. (And to answer your initial question, that was the only reason I was doing trivia daily. Back when I was doing this, I was getting 100+ points every single day - from huddling, doing trivia, reading articles and blogs, etc.)

does anybody do trivia just to collect points?
I have discovered a way to 'cheat' into improving your percentage.
just answer the questions you are sure of, if one comes up you don't know, just go back to spark points or anywhere and start trivia over again. the questions you have answered correctly still count.
ok you'll never learn whose hamburger or burrito has fewer calories....
but thanks for telling me about the coconut oil, I was really beginning to wonder about it!

The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.

3/4 ~ emoticon Completely wild guess on the coconut one and was right! I know there is coconut oil, but that's about the lump sum of my knowledge. So of course ... what is the NEXT question? Miraculously I guessed that one right too. Then I flubbed one I should have known about contributing to low blood pressure.

1) The main fatty acid found in coconut oil is:
= Lauric acid

2) One tablespoon of coconut oil contains:
= 12 grams of saturated fat

3) Which of the following dietary habits does NOT contribute to high blood pressure?
= A low intake of calcium

4) True or False: Antibiotics can treat a cold or the flu.
= False

3/4 ~ emoticon First one was a complete WHA?! moment. I first thought an amino acid, then figured I'd recognize those, then thought an antioxidant, but I thought those were normal vitamins like A and E, so ended up guessing a chemical compound in fats. Oh well, no 100% for October.

1) What is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)?
= An antioxidant

2) True or False: Eggs can absorb flavors and smells from your fridge.
= True

3) To make refined or bleached 'white flour,' what part of the wheat kernel is removed?
= A and B only (wheat bran, wheat germ)

4) Cold and flu season is in full swing! To stop germs from spreading, how long should you wash your hands at each session?
= 20 seconds

Blue, Lethie, or Jennifer May - I answer to them all
