I am too hung over today to think. Thank goodness you had the answers there.

I got the first but the second I screwed up on. Pretty fun game.

I like these! I'm not any good at them, but I still like 'em!

So glad you gave us the answers! I would have been going crazy for some time!

Yeah I got the first but missed the second. Pretty cool brain exercise. How do you make the answers appear like that?

Cheeseboy said...

Wow. That quiz was WAY too tough for my feeble mind.

Me too - got the first but not the second one, not until I read the answer. Can I get extra points added to the scoreboard?

I never would have gotten the second one...

I don't have enough brain cells today to figure it out...after reading the answers I felt really dumb.

The funniest thing about these laws, is that they actually made sense to somebody at some particular point of time in the past.

Is there a law against run-on sentences?
