Default A Thought Provoking Quz For People Who Know Everything

I will post the answers later

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.


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 severa
growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are
the only two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

5. 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?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters "dw" and they
are all common words. Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least
half of them?

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned,
processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the
letter "S."

I know for a fact Asparagus is one of the vegetables. My father used to have an Asparagus patch in the back yard and it came up every year on it's own without reseeding.

I didn't put much thought into these but the only two I got offhand were 5 & 6. I actually just read a book that explained the process of #5 (it was a fiction book, not one about alcohol or anything lol)
