I nearly passed! I got three questions right - 2, 6 and 10. I have to confess, however, that I've had this quiz e-mailed to me before, so it may be that the three I answered correctly were the only ones I could remember from the last time I did it :wink:.

The only ones I knew were 3, 8, 10. I knew the black box was orange from watching airplane shows since I was a wee lad. I don't have a clue how I knew about cat gut, and I knew the purple finch because I had some living on my porch as a kid and was dive bombed frequently.

the only one I knew was #3, 'cause I'v read 'bout cat gut before (makes good bow string) sounds like some names need changing, like the 116 years war! :D

Well, you won't believe me when I tell you I got six right then.

It should have been 7, but I'd forgotten just how many more than 100 years the Hundred Years War ran.

But then, I've been known to read dictionaries and encyclopaedia for relaxation.

Then a big congrats goes to you grs! On the 100 years war thing, I also knew it was more than 100 years, but couldn't for the life of me remember how many.

5. Germans

7 you are (we hope)
