    I got 15/27......not too bad, I guess, although it would certainly be a failing grade on any other sort of test :uhoh21:

    I had to think WAY back to when our TV had dials for #12. I was about 9 years old when we got one of those new-fangled TVs with a remote and digital numbers. I vaguely remember VHF and UHF. So of course I got that one wrong. Also, how often do you see radio dials any more?

    Water goes down Counter-clockwise in the northern. (Actually, it depends on how the slots are arranged in the toilet.) (Hurricanes turn in a counter clockwise direction in northern hemisphere.

    Yes, I thought so too. I spent some time in Australia and noticed it was clockwise down there.

    I only got 18, but I'm not too disappointed, given that I don't have a car (let alone changed a tire!) and I've never seen a US penny or a US $20 bill! Damn that Bashful, by the way!

    I got 23/27! I've changed more tires than I care to count. I missed the VHF because I forgot there wasn't a channel for 1.

    I got an 85% THAT is PASSING!!! Can you tell I just graduated from Nursing school?


    In His Grace,
