Anyone else "test your yravel IQ?"

Look at today's Fodors question. This makes me feel good that I'm not the only person prone to the occasional typo!

By the way, an overwhelming majority of Fodorites are answering correctly. Good job!!

Oh piffile. I thought Fodors had a new word for us to learn. I feel like I have Yraveled at various times, assuming that it is something like unravel.
If that question tests travel IQ, then I am on the wrong space ship.

It would be nice if it was actually a trivia feature rather than a way to sell those books

I can't believe it! I came to USA as an adult, did not go to a school here, and I got the right answer!!

By the way how one question can test my IQ? And how a HISTORY question can test my TRAVEL IQ?

What is the purpose of this "test" which is not really a test?

The purpose is:
To learn about America's past, hit the road with Fodor's all new Travel Historic America series. The Thirteen Colonies and The Old West guides are perfect for families, history mavens, or anyone who wants to experience America's heritage firsthand.

BigRed, I swear I did not see those book offers, or whatever those colored pictures are when I opened it first time. I answered the question, and thought that's it! Now reading your reply I opened it again. No, I will continue to ignore all commercial pictures. If Fodor's wants to sell something why didn't they say so? If it's camouflaged as a test, for me it's just one question. No colors

Well, at least they fixed the typo and it now reads "Travel IQ" even if it is a thinly disguised attempt to sell a book. Heck, it's a free site so they can do this, I guess.
