Silly Trucker - All great answers. I especially liked "the plural of deer is herd" and "I don't do multiples" (good thing). Since YOU are the teacher's pet, I give you an "A+" and a gold star! :)

Jay - 100% A+.

Just Dave - 90% B+.

Canadian Flake - 100% plus extra bonus points for knowing TWO American History questions AND getting the $1,000,000 question!

RWA - 100% A+.

Truckindog - Sorry dude, you missed 4. That's a 60%. But I really chuckled at your answer for the $1,000,000 question. That's what most of the potholes around here look like.

E.Craig - Very true.

Good job, folks.
