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.  The answers are at the end.  There are only 9 questions. 

    

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"

I "thought" I was an idiot BEFORE I took that test.

Now I'm convinced I'm an idiot.

 

I struck out!

I got zero answers even remotely close..........

I managed to correctly answer 4, 7, & 9 and I got 1/3 of 6 (I remembered "dwarf.")

 

Other than that, I failed miserably. 

 

should have managed to remember #3 as I have rhubarb growing in my yard and we eat asparagus at least a few times a year but, I didn't.  It's interesting to see how hard simple questions can get sometimes.

JEEZ,

I got 1,4,5,6,8. Purge Air dwell timers dwindle down. If you work with Ovens or Robots you'll remember that. The others mean I must watch the food channel way to much. 5 out of 9.

Man the ol' nuns would be bustin' a ruler on me. 

 

 Hey Mike, Keep'em 10 an in Bro.

Knowing minor details to life reflects nothing on how smart you are, It just means that you happen to have learned obviously uncommon or things people no longer commonly care about, purely by chance or strange interest.

I shall reveal the truth behind the crap

 

In response to the word "sport" Boxing will be one of the last things thought of

 

there was no relative direction provided, making the second question even more rediculous than the others

 

I'm gonna take a wild guess here and say that 1% of america still grows stuff and would know much of anything about crops.

 

you should be ashamed if you got 6,7and 9 because if you major in english, or history for that matter you will go to work for UPS for a living.

 

I'm just trying to boost moral here, not trying to bust your chops Chris.

Alright the truth is that I... I... well I didn't get any of them, so rather than expose my horrible secret, I thought I would attack the questions themselves.

 

I'm sorry Chris
