    I got 19 right. sheesh. They're not all that easy.
  4. by   live4today
    HA! Guess I'm not as observant of those day to day things as I thought I would be.......only got ten right.
  5. by   babynurselsa
    I got 18.
  6. by   mercyteapot
    Beat by 1... I got 19. How nice of matchbox makers to give you 20 matches to go with your 20 cigs. Why do hotdog buns manufacturers only give you 8 buns for 10 dogs (I know.. it's so you have to buy 2 packs, but geesh...)

    I've wondered that same thing, too, Mercy.
  8. by   leslie :-D
    my hot dog buns come in 6-packs.
    my dh put down 6 too.
    also, i got 5 out of the 6 colors correct for campbell's soup.
    so is that plus 5 or is the entire answer wrong?
    because if the entire answer is wrong, my score is bonafide airhead.
    if i'm allowed to add 5, then it's a bit less shameful.

    I think we should be allowed to add 5 out of 6, Les.

    I missed the color gold.
  10. by   NotReady4PrimeTime
    I got 20. I also missed gold, put down green instead. I do think I should get a point for the slash on the "no smoking" sign, because in Canada it goes upper right to lower left. And maybe bonus points for knowing which hand Liberty holds the torch in!
  11. by   sirI
    I agree, janfrn. You deserve extra points!!!!!

    Good job!
  12. by   Fun2, RN, BSN
    19 here....it surprised me that I got that many correct. I had to guess at several.







    Oh....and let me add...... We always have hotdog buns left over. haha (The kiddos and I cut up the hotdog weiner, smother it with chili, and top that with shredded cheese.) DH is the only one who eats the buns most of the time. lol

    Straight up - 17.

    If we are granting credit for 5/6 colors on soup cans: 18 - I didn't get yellow.

    I also want to argue the VHF tv question. I answered 13 but I included the U for UHF on the dial. The question didn't ask: how many VHF channels on a VHF TV, but how many channels period on the VHF dial. There might not be a "1", but there IS a "U". You can argue that "U" isn't a channel, per se, but it is a separate 'turn' on the dial; it offers the availability of an extra 'channel' at that space on the dial.

    So, I claim 19.

    I thought about the U as well.. but I still guessed 10. It's not like I can pull a TV from my childhood and look at it.
