Default i would just like to say . . .

i am smarter than a 5th grader. if this show is to be believed.

the radius of a circle? please. ohio sharing a border with illinois? dont make me laugh. which hemisphere is the US in? density? which planet would a person be the heaviest on?

im batting 1000. though, truth be told the last one gave me a little bit of a ponderance, considering that while jupiter has much much more mass than the other 7 planets, the radius is a lot larger. but then, the radius is much less of a factor than mass, so no question, really.

lets go to the dmv.

No million dollar prize for ya though :(

I didnt think this show would have a chance, yet there it goes, while great shows like Entourage and Arrested Development are ignored.

Euh...

I usually bat 1000 with that show too, but I haven't watched it since the second or third day it was on. One woman didn't even know how many sides a rhombus has (she said 10.....10!!!!). Another didn't know what a trapezoid was. I do realize these people haven't been in grade school in YEARS, but some things should never leave your brain.

I've had to think pretty hard on some of them questions, and I've even gotten a few wrong. It'* been a while since I've had to think about some of that stuff.

but I can't believe the couple of fols who use up all their cheats on the first few questions...

It is interesting but those kids are cocky. LOL It is fun to watch. One question that got me was what constellation is the little dipper in. It has been a long time since I've been in school and I was there for socializing more than learning. (imagine that. Haha)

I do OK at the show. I'm not too good with the years of events and I had NFC what geological era we are currently in.
