kenju said...

lime said...

razorbeck said...

hey i got four right though i did think th hundred years war lasted 107 lol

Jemima said...

Didn't get any of them wrong, as I answered not cat, not camel, etc, if I didn't know. And got 4,6,7,9 and 10 right. Which, I think, qualifies me as a genius. Yay me.

To be fair I got to the black box question, realised a trick was a-foot, then went back and thought it through properly. Tee hee.

Rachel said...

I always flunk these things, but who would have thought of some of these answers!! Just not fair!!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Boy, that Jvs! Genius.

Schnoodlepooh: It's okay 'cause you're so cute.

Kenju: Exactly.

Lime: that's two better than I did.

Razorbeck: You da man!

Rachel, honey, life ain't fair. Period. Get over it.

D'oh indeed!

Peter said...

I got them all right, mainly because I got them all wrong when I did this quiz before.

Saur♥Kraut said...

I didn't get a one of 'em. :P

The cartoon reminds me of a book I read recently (that I don't recommend): Wicked.

Lucy said...

Great post TLP - i failed - but i had fun. i'm gonna share this one with my hospital friend....

Minka said...

I thought that tests shoudl reflect our knowledge of what we have previously leanred. I looked through the last few posts and nothing, not a mention of anything that would lead up to this! As a student a normally brain-sized Human being I demand a fair test based on covered material!

AP3 said...

Yeah. I pretty much failed that.

The Lazy Iguana said...

I knew about the black box, and for some reason I knew the October Revolution one too.

Tom & Icy said...

Canary Islands was named after us Dogs? Must have been Old Yeller! Woof!

actonbell said...

I echo tom & icy! Canarys are birds.

puppytoes said...

i knew they were all trick questions and i still failed miserably. so, you know... i really am just...sad. (tee hee!) : D

Pamela said...

Can I just mention that the Canary Islands are in the Atlantic ocean and not the Pacific. Well, I hope they are, otherwise I am very lost - have lived on the largest island of Tenerife for 14 years. LOL!

And yeah, the islands were named after the dogs that were found here. Then the birdies got named after the islands.
