    Stretch Your Minds

    Hi All,

    I came home from work last night and my daughter hit me up for some help on a quiz she and her friends had gotten hooked on. I had some fun with it and thought I might share with my friends here in the Lounge.

    Hope you all enjoy it.



    Quiz:

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

    2. Name a North American landmark that is constantly moving backward.

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

    4. The fruit with its seeds on the outside.

    5. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle?

    6. Three English words beginning with dw.

    7 Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar (an easy one for the Lounge Pendants).

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

    9. Six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with "s".

    (It is probably too late but I have removed the anwers for future viewing).

    Isn't that part of a country western song, "Dwang Me" by Roger Miller? <img src=/S/sing.gif border=0 alt=sing width=24 height=20>

    I didn't think of that Rudi. I have amended my original entry if it is not too late.

    Re: Stretch Your Minds

    2) Red River in North Dakota - it flows north. (While this may be backwards from all other rivers it is still moving forward from it's point of origin).
    3) rhubarb and asparagus - Correct!
    5)bottle was placed around it when it was very tiny - Also Correct!
    8)lettuce? - Correctomundo!!
    9)shoes, socks, sandals, slippers, skis suede - the first five are correct but the last I think would probably go with the shoes.

    Excellent work!

    #9 - Would a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">pair of Silk Stockings</span hide> count as four S's or just the one?
