Super Quiz

Postby Warpigs » Thu Feb 03, 2005 1:16 pm

I love questions that challenge the brain and wanted to see just how intelligent some of our cafe bretheren actually are. Pulling questions from various sources, I wanted to challenge the cafe's smartest to a little quiz. How many of these can you honestly answer without looking too much up? If anyone can answer all questions, you'll earn yourself a gold star for effort! ;-D



1 How many ways are there to make change for a dollar bill?
2 T or F – Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated?
3 What is the only fish that can blink with both eyes?
4 Which hand does most of the typing?
5 Two-thirds of the world’s eggplant is grown in what US state?
6 All of the clocks in “Pulp Fiction” are stuck on what time?
7 Almonds are part of what fruit family?
8 What is the only state whose name is just one syllable?
9 Who were Sesame Street’s Bert and Ernie named after?
10 What are the only four words in the English language to end in “dous”?
11 On a Canadian two-dollar bill, what country’s flag is flying over the Parliament building?
12 What animal/creature is known for having the largest eyes in the world?
13 What occupation was on Al Capone’s business cards?
14 T or F After the death of her husband, poet Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein) kept his heart wrapped up in silk until she died.
15 The shortest war in history was between Zanzibar and Great Britain in 1896. How long did it last?

11. although it looks like the American flag, it's really an old Canadian flag called the "Red Ensign", Canadas flag from 1870 to 1965

4. I'll guess right hand. Because if you add in periods and commas and if you use the numbers on the far right.
11. My guess would've been the British flag because a Parliment is a British Congress, I think.
