Blog bandit

Saturday, April 16, 2005

I'm a bit under the weather, so have no energy to think something up for blogging. But, the sweet spot of procrastination is 'sleight of hand', misdirection--looking like you're doing something when you're not. It's an art.

Stealing is also an art. heh. So I'm stealing a quizz from Harris' blog. How much more can I give for my art? I've surfed, theived, and posted. ::mops sweat from brow:: It's is a dirty job, but someone has to do it:

This is based on U.S. & Canadian info. There are 27 questions about things we see every day or have known all our lives. No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer! Can you beat 20? (the average person only gets 7)


1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?
2. How many states are there in the USA? (Don't laugh, some people don't know)
3. In which hand is the Statue of Liberty's torch?

I got 17, & damned proud of it in a contest that featured (ha!) Canadian coins, & seven dwarfs I've not only never known but couldn't pick out of a lineup if they mugged me on a brightly-lit Christmas morn in front of FBI headquarters!
(and MY paper clips only have SIX curves, neener-neener!) :-p~~~~

Drat! I only got 15. I was only one color off on the Campbell's soup label, though! And I felt silly for not getting the "loony" answer.

Biddy said...

I got 13... not bad considering

I got 16, not too bad. I haven't a clue about Canadian coins...would you about Scottish ones??

I also missed the one about a woman's blouse buttons as I tend to wear mens clothes, they're roomier and hide my love handles.
