If you skip a question, that provides information about how useful OKCupid users find that question, and increases the likelihood that it will be retired. So skipping the ones you like is an act of civic virtue.

That is excellent news :) (Except I _can't_ skip the one I detest the most! It never shows up with the Skip button!)

I noticed that about the logic/math puzzles. Which one is it you don't like, if you don't mind saying?

The one about flipping 3 coins, and what are the odds they will all turn up heads? I should know this, I really should, but I forget. Probability was way back in high school. I suspect it has something to do with factorials, but I'm not sure.

You could just admit that you don't know... that's what I did.

But I _should_ know. Either I find a way to skip it and move on to other questions, or I find out the correct answer. I refuse to choose "Don't know/Don't care". If I do that, the system wins.

Don't worry. You'll be that system yet!

That may well be the most terrifying thing anyone has ever suggested could happen to me. If I have nightmares tonight, I'm blaming you.

I was being pretty honest with a couple of the math questions - I could recognize under the circumstances that some of them were trick questions, so I was honest in saying what I would respond, but then put down that the Dream Date would actually get the correct answer. *shrug* and then I learned to skip them.

That's when I back-click a screen and when I prompt it for the next question it brings me to a random question, not the evil question I just wanted to skip.

I've tried that trick. Many times over. It. Won't. Give me. A different. Question.

Really? Works for me, unless it's the first question that pops up.

Yeah. The fucker shows up after I've done 40 or 100 other questions, and then I can't get past it! Argh! But now I know the answer, so, no more worries :)

Maybe you're just running out of questions to answer...
