    Q U I Z - Answers tomorrow! (Tired, beddy bo's calling),

    Apols if its a repost but if so, leave it for those who dont know the answers!

    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.'

    actually - I didn't need to google - I checked out the questions - looked at what others had put and decided if I thought they were corerct or not and then worked out the rest for myself - but hey I dont mind if you think I needed to cheat - I know I didnt and thats all that matters :thumbsup: (quiz nights do pay off if you go to enough)
