I didn't do so good. :'(
It wasn't the "Forestry" questions that did me in...in most cases...it was the otheruns....:'(
I reckon someone else is going to get to wear that hunting hood around town. :'(
I think I'll go home now.....I'm so distraught and depressed. ::) ;)

That was fun. Thanks to google search for bailing me out of some questions I had no idea of.

Like who was the famous diver from Alaska. Or the famous sheep herder from Florida. But the most difficult was the Shortest high jumper to win a metal in the great games. Go figure ;D

O.k. what the heck is the problem here?  The thing ain't that hard. there are 5 different versions of the thing, which come up at random. Each individual version has the SAME 14 questions each time it comes up. that means that if you just simply write down the correct answer when you get it, the next time you see it you will have it.

14 times 5 that means a total of 70 answers to enter all 5 times. If you want to enter just once, just keep refreshing the page till you get the same batch of questions again. that way you only have to learn 14 to enter.

14 Questions! Thats it! thats all!  Charlie, you can keep track on your toes and still enter!

So far I have two entries and that is it!  (Gordon you did the same version twice, it only counts once :) )  almost 2 hundred  members on this boar and only 2 entries???? :) ;) :D ;D >:( :( :o 8) ??? ::) :P :-[ :-X :-/ :-* :'(

After playing this game for a while I have concluded:

It is impossible.  There is no use in trying to win.  There really isn't a prize, Jeff's just toying with everyone.  Do yourself a favor and don't play the game.  Whatever you do, definitely don't win (There's no hope for me winning if I have competition)  ;)

Hey Jeff, I think its Agriculture not Agiculture, but maybe I was taught wrong.  ;D

its not only agiculture its also baslom and fur and mebe a couple of othe southern spellings ;)

I could fix it, but am leary about working on it in the middle of somebody playing. I can just see somebody clicking on the corect last answer as I am replacing the file to correct spelling!  But what do you care! you won't need to be playing it now...

And by the way swamp, Your secret is safe with me!

Ain't no problem Jeff, I cheated and you busted me thats all. It was worth a try to take the super easy way out. I figured it came up and I already knew the answer to the type of sand at a southern Borneo beach and went for it.8) 8) 8)

I will be doing another round of that game just cuz I like it. Oh that idea to write the correct answer down sure was a smart one as well. :D

To all the other members on this board----DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT try to complete the questions. They are way to difficult to answer. The one about the beach sand I had to call a hotel in Borneo and it was very expensive. That was one of the easy questions. I won't even go into the difficult ones.  :P :P :P

Not to mention the less that enter the better chance I've got.

Well, I couldn't even cheat and get anywhere.  I went out to the Yosemite site and it said it was the 1st National Park. So I clicked on it ..... wrong.   I tried again and Yellowstone was the correct answer......hmmmmmm. Wonder why Yosemite is claiming something they ain't.  I'm gonna complain to President Bush about this one.;D Why I can't imagine why our guvment would put out disinformation. :o Then I got to the "How many gallons of sap does it take to make a gallon of syrup?"  I looked at   http://www.mi-maplesyrup.com/howto.html     and it said it takes about 43 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup.  So I clicked on the answer 40-50.  Wrong again.  Of course that was a Michigan site so their information is highly suspect. I'm gonna send them a note and tell them of their error and that they should quit publishing misinformation.;D ;D  Then I'm gonna report them to the Better Business Bureau and to President Bush. :o Oh well, it was fun trying 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Try again Charlie.

I've got it figured out.  It's not what the right answer is....it's what Jeff says the right answer is.

Remember in school  what the teacher said?...you gotta listen to the lecture. :D

I'll bet I can guess what they are before you do. ;D

O.K. !  Yellowstone: http://www.yellowstone.net/history.htm

As for Maple syrup: if you found a site that says "to the gallon" how many it takes (43 was it?) then you have found a site that knows nothing.  The answer the question is looking for is clearly an average or it would not list a 10 gallon swing.

It might take 65 gallons cometimes depending on the sugar content, or it may take less then 30.

As far as I know, my questions and answers are accurate. prove to me they are not and I will change them. Maybe... :-*

I just want everybody to know that Charlie was able to finally win one! Ahd we did not help him, in fact he may have helped a couple of you by listing the answers in this thread.

I Think the Short bus has now picked Charlie up to take him to Tom's house where he can be looked after for a spell. I am sure the tremendous strain of getting entered will reduce poor Charlie to a pile of pulp on Brother Tom's Sofa for 3 days.

hey, no need to pity Tom's wife.  I have found that she is capable of handling a lot more situations than I ever dreamed I could and living through it......and Charlie and I deserve each other.

If the mosquitoes will retreat a little bit, you will probably find us in the back yard with a Jack and our feet propped up on the fire pit cooking steaks over an Oak and Red Bay fire.  ;D

.........well, maybe hamburgers. :-/

 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

I think this is the first thing I ever won in my life.  YAHOO!
I guess my tactics to keep others from playing paid off.

Look out turkeys, you won't know what hit you.  I'll have to wait till spring season, though, our fall season was this weekend only.

Haven't turkey hunted in a couple of years, I guess I need to get the call out and start practicing.
