This is a question Winning

I once won a gas boiler from The Guardian. Tell us about times you've won, and the excellent and/or crappy prizes you've lifted.

I won a job by fraud
A colleague at work approached me a year or so ago. 'My girlfriend's going for a job this week', he said. 'She's supposed to do some kind of IQ test online for it. Don't suppose you'd be willing to do it for her?'

I've mentioned before my views on IQ tests. I think they're pointless and meaningless, but I happen to be pretty good at them. And I hadn't tried one in about twenty years. So my response was 'Is she up to the job?'. 'Sure, she's just a bit freaked out by having to do this test.'

So with an almost clear conscience, I aced the test, defrauded her employer and won her the job. Got to love the moral ambiguity...

Is the non-functioning link
part of an online IQ test?

All you had to do was check the source, realise I'd used single quotes instead of double and confused the parser, copy and paste the result into the address bar and read the scintillating discussion that followed.

Sorry :) Fixed
