**I got this from a cousin today...I only got one right!
I'll post the answers later...post your's in the comments, to make it fun don't look at comments before posting your 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 st andard 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

Shoot, does it count that I did them after you posted the answers? I didn't know the answers were posted..It said not to look at the other comments until my answers were completed.

Boxing....now I remember hearing that before, but had forgotten.
There really are more than 2 perennial vegetables....I worked in a greenhouse for over 9 years. We grrew and sold them.

This was a good quiz, Sunny. Thanks for sharing it....

SPATS? Nice! Good one.

Sunny not to be negative but who keeps score in a boxing contest/match? The judges , and how do they keep score? by watching and noting the event. This means that several people know the outcome before the contest is over . The right answer is any type of fishing tournement where the fish are weighed and released at the end of the day. no one knows who won until the weight totals are all entered. sorry to burst your bubble

Botany 101 lesson one ALL vegetables and fruits can , when left in the wild, reproduce every year. That is the beauty of nature it reproduces itself that is why the fruits and veggies grow seeds in the first place! Your question when taken commonly should read what vegetables reproduce from their own rootstock without planting. Rhubarb , being a fruit , is the only fruit that reproduces from rootstock, however when left alone rhubarb will produce some rather large and pretty seed heads in the fall which can be harvested and planted in a different place to start the cycle all over . Asparagrus also produce seed which must be left alone to replenish the root ball or the root system will eventually die off if all shoots are harvested yearly and none are left to go to seed. Wild garlic(not the commercially grown stuff also is a "perennial" reproducing it's small but rather pungent seed bulb underground yearly. End lesson.

Botany 101a the blackberry also has an outerlayer of seeds, the nasty little hard things between the little bulbs of each segment are the seed dycotolydens and the pulpy part is the nourishment to get the seed started after it falls from the plant. The same is also true of raspberries .


Dictionary reading 100 sub section 2 : dwarf (not counting the 6 derivatives ) , dwarfish ( 2 derivatives), dwarfism ,dwarfstar, dweebm, dwell( 4 derivatives), dwelling, dwindle. htis does not includ all the abbreviations beginign with DW.


Keyboarding101b My keyboard shows 18 different punctuations not counting Those above # 2 3 4 5 6 or + = which are not to my knowledge considered punctuation

And a kudo too Please don't make me think this hard again

ALL vegetables and fruits can , when left in the wild, reproduce every year
Sorry Sweetie, they "can" but not as a rule of thumb.Hence they are not considered perennials..And some that do reproduce, only do it for 2...possibly 3 years, Tops. Therefore actually considered semi perennials....

Good point on a few other things though, especially the blackberries and raspberries.
