Quiz for People Who Know Everything

There are only nine questions. This is a quiz for people who know everything! I found out in a hurry that I didn't. These are not trick questions. They are straight questions with straight answers..


1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ' dw' and they are all common words. Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least half of them?

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter 'S.'
 


Answers To Quiz

1. The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends: Boxing.

2. North American landmark constantly moving backward: Niagara Falls. The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.

3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons: Asparagus and rhubarb.

4. The fruit with its seeds on the outside: Strawberry.

5. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle? It grew inside the bottle. The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.

6. Three English words beginning with dw: Dwarf, dwell and dwindle.

7. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar: Period, comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe, question mark, exclamation point, quotation mark, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellipses.

8.. The only vegetable or fruit never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh: Lettuce.

9. Six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with 'S': Shoes, socks, sandals, sneakers, slippers, skis, skates, snowshoes, stockings, stilts

1950s  version of an  E-Mail

Long ago and  far away, in a land that time forgot,
Before  the days of Dylan, or the dawn of Camelot.
There  lived a race of innocents, and they were you and me,
For Ike was in  the White House in that land where we were born,
Where  navels were for oranges, and Peyton Place was porn.
We learned  to gut a muffler, we washed our hair at dawn,
We  spread our crinolines to dry in circles on the lawn..
We  longed for love and romance, and waited for our Prince,
And  Eddie Fisher married Liz , and no one's seen him since.
We danced to  'Little Darlin,' and sang to 'Stagger Lee'
And  cried for Buddy Holly in the Land That Made  Me,
Me.
Only girls wore  earrings then, and 3 was one too many,
And  only boys wore flat-top cuts, except for Jean  McKinney
.
And only in  our wildest dreams did we expect to see
A  boy named George with Lipstick, in the Land That Made  Me
, Me.
We fell for  Frankie Avalon, Annette was oh, so nice,
And  when they made a movie, they never made it twice..
We didn't have  a Star Trek Five, or Psycho Two and Three,
Or  Rocky-Rambo Twenty in the Land That Made Me, Me.
Miss Kitty had  a heart of gold, and Chester had a limp,
And  Reagan was a Democrat whose co-star was a chimp.
We had a Mr.  Wizard, but not a Mr. T,
And  Oprah couldn't talk yet, in the Land That Made  Me,
Me.
We  had our share of heroes, we never thought they'd go,
At  least not Bobby Darin, or Marilyn Monroe.
For youth was  still eternal, and life was yet to be,
And  Elvis was forever in the Land That Made  Me,
Me.
We'd never  seen the rock band that was Grateful to be Dead,
And  Airplanes weren't named Jefferson, and Zeppelins were not  Led.
And Beatles  lived in gardens then, and Monkees lived in trees,
Madonna  was Mary in the Land That Made Me, Me.
We'd never  heard of microwaves, or telephones in cars,
And  babies might be bottle-fed, but they were not grown in  jars.
And pumping  iron got wrinkles out, and 'gay' meant fancy-free,
And  dorms were never co-ed in the Land That Made Me,  Me.
We hadn't seen enough of jets to talk about the lag,
And  microchips were what was left at the bottom of the bag.
And hardware  was a box of nails, and bytes came from a flea,
And  rocket ships were fiction in the Land That Made  Me,
Me.
Buicks came  with portholes, and side shows came with freaks,
And  bathing suits came big enough to cover both your  cheeks.
And Coke came  just in bottles, and skirts below the knee,
And  Castro came to power near the Land That Made  Me,
Me.
We had no  Crest with fluoride, we had no Hill Street Blues,
We  had no patterned pantyhose or Lipton herbal tea
Or  prime-time ads for those dysfunctions in the Land That Made  Me
, Me.
There were no  golden arches, no Perrier to chill,
And fish were  not called Wanda, and cats were not called Bill.
And  middle-aged was 35 and old was fifty-three,
And  ancient were our parents in the Land That Made  Me,
Me.
But all things  have a season, or so we've heard them say,
And  now instead of Maybelline we swear by Retin-A.
They  send us invitations to join AARP,
We've  come a long way, baby, from the Land That Made Me, Me.
So now we face  a brave new world in slightly larger jeans,
And  wonder why they're using smaller print in magazines.
And  we tell our children's children of the way it used to  be,
Long  ago and far away in the Land That Made Me, Me.
If you didn't  grow up in the fifties,
you missed the greatest time in  history,
         Hope you enjoyed  this read as much as I  did.

Back in September of 2005, on the first day of  school, Martha Cothren, a social studies school  teacher  at Robinson High School in Little  Rock, did something not to be forgotten.  On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal, and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks from her classroom.

When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks.

'Ms. Cothren, where're our desks?'

She replied, 'You can't have a desk until you tell me how you earn the right to sit at a desk.'

They thought,  'Well, maybe it's our grades.'

'No,' she said.

'Maybe it's our behavior.'

She told them, 'No, it's not even your behavior.'

And so, they came and went, the first period, second period, third period.  Still no desks in the classroom.

By early afternoon television news crews had started gathering in Ms. Cothren's classroom to report about this crazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of her room.

The final  period of the  day came and as the puzzled students found seats on the floor of the deskless classroom, Martha Cothren said,  'Throughout the day no one has been able  to tell me just what he/she has done to earn the  right  to sit at the desks that are ordinarily found in this classroom.  Now I am going to tell  you.'

At this point, Martha Cothren went over to the door of her classroom and opened it.

Twenty-seven (27) U.S. Veterans, all in uniforms, walked into that classroom, each one carrying a school desk.  The Vets began placing the school desks in rows, and then they would walk over and stand alongside the wall.  By the time the last soldier had set the final desk in place those kids started  to understand, perhaps for the first time in their lives, just how the right to sit at those desks had been earned.

Martha said,  'You didn't earn the right to sit at these desks.  These heroes did it for you. They placed the desks here for you.  Now, it's up to you to sit in them.  It is your responsibility to learn, to be good students, to be good citizens.  They paid the price so that you could have the freedom to get an education.  Don't ever forget  it.'

By the way, this is a true story.  And this teacher was awarded Teacher of the Year by the Arkansas VFW in 2006.

Please consider passing this along so others won't forget that the freedoms we have in this great country were earned by U. S. Veterans


Do  You Remember a Time When: 

  • Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?
  • Mistakes were corrected by simply saying, 'Do Over!'?
  • 'Race issue' meant arguing about  who ran the fastest?
  • Catching Fireflies Happily Occupied An Entire  Evening?
  • It  wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best  Friends'?
  • Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a  Slingshot?
  • Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute commercials  for action figures?
  • 'Oly-oly-oxen-free'  made perfect sense?
  • Spinning  around, getting dizzy, and falling down was  cause for giggles?
  • Worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team?
  • War was a card game?
  • Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a  motorcycle?
  • Taking  drugs meant orange - flavored chewable  aspirin?
  • Water  balloons were the ultimate  weapon?

If  you can remember most or all of these, Then You  Have Lived!!!!!!!

Pass  this on to anyone who may need a break from  their Grown-Up' Life . .

Rainbow Bridge

In Memory of Conner, Our Irish Setter and Jesser our Springer Spaniel

Conner

Our California Baby Jesser

Just this side of heaven is a place called
Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
