Know-It-All's Test

This is a quiz for people who know everything! I found out in a hurry that I didn't. These are not trick questions. They are straight questions with straight answers. Let's see how smart we are

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.
2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?
3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables?
4. Name the only sport in which the ball is always in possession of the team on defense, and the offensive team can score without touching the ball?
5. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?
6. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle?
7. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters "dw" and they are all common words. Name two of them.
8. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least half of them?
9. Where are the lakes that are referred to in the Los Angeles Lakers?
10. There are 7 ways a baseball player can legally reach first base without getting a hit. Taking a base on balls (a walk) is one way. Name the other 6.
11. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.
12. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter "S."

I will post the answers tommorow.

1. Politics? Oh wait. you said sport. Boxing (TKO!).
2. Anything facing east. Unless it's eroding. Like Niagra Falls.
3. My rhubarb bush is considered a veggie. And I love my neighbor's asparagus...starting even NOW!!!!
4. That's another "ball" (I'm out in left field most the time!)
5. Blackberry...but even further outside...strawberry.
6. Strangest view of orchards lining the Rhone Valley, where Poir Williams is "vinted"...come late spring, all the trees are bedecked with bottles, a bottle for every viable little pear-baby.
7. Don't be a dweeb: variations of dwell(ing)(er) would fulfill the requirement: I used to adjust the dwell on my...carberuator...a while back. But a dwarf would be more adept at getting into today's engine. The prevalence of cars with carburators has dwindled in the past decade.
8. Period, comma, semicolon and colon, exclamation, question, quote, hyphen (em dash and en dash) (OK, I write for a living...)
9. I think that team used to belong to another state and was sold/bought. California has an Austrian governor and a Minnesota basketball team.
10. Eeeh. I've gotten hit by a pitched ball, and my only other hope was when the catcher dropped a pitch. That's two.
11. Let us pray we never have to dine on a salad that had been previously frozen, canned or cooked. Primary ingredient: lettuce.
12. Shoes slippers skis snowboard skates socks...stilettoes...

Answer 'em.... hell I had a hard time reading them ! LOL, except the shoe question [12], sandals, slingbacks, slides, stillettoes, spikes, stockings, silver slippers, sexy stunning sparkling sequin six-inch shiny Simonelli shoes, so I get extra credit for that one. And too many sports questions, no fair

And I think for No. 10 I would seduce the Umpire, 10 times if necessary, that must be the right answer.

Oh and obviously the North American landmark always moving backwards must be Michael Jackson, that one was easy.

Fun questions, plus now I am done thinking for the rest of the day [or week], got that out of the way. LOL
