So, Brainbench holds Brainbench Games annually. Someone held a gun to my head to take a couple of Brainbench tests, so I did. I took 7 of them, and got the top score in one of them. Hellz yeah!! Too bad it's in WWW concepts and not something very useful

I did win a year's subscription to Brainbench. It's a Major Award, I tell ya.. A Major Award!

Congrats Jayesh!

It doesn't matter if its WWW (or 'not useful' ) - my experience (and I have very little of it) tells me that whenever we learn something, it is never wasted. Someday, we find ourselves in the situation where we are happy that we learnt that specific thing.

All the Best!

It's from a movie called Christmas story. The main character's dad wins this ugly looking lamp that looks like a woman's leg. He is incredibly proud of it. He keeps claiming that it's a major award, and displays it in the window, embarrassing his wife.

"Major award" is a reference to anything that you normally wouldn't go and get yourself, but now that you have won it, you are still proud of it.
