I counted; I had 40.000 less than yesterday, so it was a strain to fix 24.

On precisely Oct. 1, my local Wal-Mart put out artificial Christmas trees for sale. Sheesh!

1..Thailand

2..NCor's spelling (Jova) shows his brain cells are intact...at least for Q2.

3..A quartet claim Saleh.

4..Meyers & VTC express "free radicals". If you know any ex-Weathermen, Black Panthers, or SDSers, hide them in your basement, if VTC comes around.

5..Geordi got "manana": those of you who once knew German lost some brain cells. MORGEN

6..Philly means NCor refutes WC Fields.

7..Tim Allen in Last Man Standing. Did anyone watch, besides K9 & Meyers?

8..The 40's works, Meyers with an educated guess.

9..Provides $ so illegals can get a college education. VTC can't help it that his partisanship keeps oozing.
Rbny & NCor with neutral exposition.

10..NCor & VTC with Norway.

11..Mine, mine, I tell you. THAT USED TO BE US

12..Being John Malkovic--SoCal starts 5 of you.

13..The ol' comfy caftan, SoCal & geordi look quite cozy in theirs.

14..Crownfox drops The Big Sleep and runs. Three others hit it.

15..Steppes are short-grasslands in temperate zones; savannahs are in the tropics, with long grass.

16..Hockey's Winnipeg Jets--geordi called for icing.

17..Pap, you divorced the hint from the question. I know if you paused, you'd never offer Nigeria as the 3rd most USA spendthrifts. You're right about Brazil and so is crown.

18..Wisconsin/Indiana are just under 40 points.

19..See rbny who is most complete.

20..So many Streisand fans.

21..Former gov.

22..Geordi has Lake Ladoga.

23..So many Fat Albert citers.

24..NCor took a wild fling and came up with France.

I Beg to Differ: Of course, in so doing, I could be wrong, but I thought the Atlanta hockey franchise became the Calgary Flames, and that the old Hartford Whalers are now the Winnipeg Jets.

My apologies WC for not participating. I lost count and thought this was the old test.

Fair, you were alone in identifying the gov.

VAUC, you had and have every right to disagree...and to look it up.

Nope didn't watch it. Just say about a million commercials for it.

8..The 40's works, Meyers with an educated guess.

More like a WAG.

18..Wisconsin/Indiana are just under 40 points.

Oh, playing each other. Thought it was 2 teams each with a 40 point spread over their opposition.

The toughest part of these quizes is the opaqueness of the questions. Understanding them is an acquired talent over much time. Which is totally unlike own thoughtful and crystal clear answers. :D
