your desk

I missed the back side of the Canadian dime. I thought it was a mapleleaf, but realized it was the penny that had that. What the hell is a Bluenose?

Bluenose is a ship

Had to think hard back to dials on TV, and remembered no #1 and highest was 13...made 12

Damn, son, you shouldn't have posted the answers...

George, if you missed maple leaf and didn't even know what a bluenose was, you must have got 25 not 26?

13 it depends on if she's buttoning it or I'm unbuttoning it.

Here are the ones I missed:
4 Missed one color (yellow)
7 had 24
11 back slash
15 Had maple leaf
19 had 8
21 had 6
24 Had maple leaf

Math isn't my biggest talent, but why would answering one question wrong lead to another question being wrong?

I got 17 right...

This response submitted by marty on 1/10/05 at 9:03 AM. ( )

...missed the two Canadian currency q's (like who cares!). Also missed #21 the hot dog bun question as I chose 10 buns. Which I am arguing this one. I have NEVER seen a standard package of hot dog buns matching the 8 hot dogs. It's always 10. They always have 2 extra. This way you have to buy 5 packages of hot dogs and 4 packages of buns minimum to break even. Check your source. it's wrong. (I'm claiming 18 correct!)

Actually, I think I am wrong about the hot dogs...

This response submitted by marty on 1/10/05 at 9:04 AM. ( )

Darnit! I think it's the other way around - 10 hot dogs and 8 buns. So I'm back to 17. I'm such a MORON!

I only got
