Rules? We don't need no stinkin rules...

I must admit that I abhor the limitations imposed by arbitrary rules. But every game has rules. In the age of instant access, the answers to thse questions can be easily found by Googling. And while that search will help to make you a smarter person for the experience. It violates the purpose of the term "Trivia." I don't ask questions that I don't already know the answer to. So resist the temptation to seek outside assistance. Just because someone posted an answer please don't assume they got it right. I'll give kudos to everyone who got it right. Not just the first correct entry.
1. Palindrome. (KC)
2. Buttermilk. (SusanD)
3. Nellybell (SusanD)
4. The SongBird (SusanD. Spent a lot of time in front of the tube as a kid)
5. Onions (KC, Gigi, Edie. glad to see so many epicurean connoisseurs in the crowd).
6. 206 unless the count includes the sternum as three pieces, then 208.
7. same as six above.
God took a rib from Adam and created woman from it. Not added it to her. Even so the
theory of trait transfer. where the offspring carry the inflictions of the parents was
abandoned long ago. Just because Adam lost a rib is no reason to infer that Cain, Able
Seth and any of us would be missing the same rib.
8. 10 points ( SusanD, Edie, Gigi)
9. 8 minutes.
10. 3.5 million Square miles (3-4 million would have been accepted).
Extra credit: Joe Biden is correct. ( Gigi, SusanD, KC. Kat go the the head of the class).
Thanks for playing...

Global Thermal Nuclear War?...How about a nice game of chess?

Edie said...

I lost again. Ah well. Think I'll go play chess with ADHD-Jo.

I so proud of myself for getting 2 + the extra credit, I feel like I "won." I am not highly educated, nor do I have total recall (or even partial recall - LOL!)

But I love Jesus so I get double extra credit.

Et je suis bien à truquer le français.

I can't wait to play next time. Just don't make any of those questions fifth grade questions. I can't play that game no matter what, and I know they didn't teach us all that stuff when we went to school.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
