Hmmm... a few of these were loaded questions:

#10 My radio goes down to 86.1 FM Of course, it was designed for use in Japan, which has a totally different band operation (only goes up to 103.9 FM)

#11 is not true. In the northern hemisphere, water down a drain will flow CCW OR CW. It doesn't matter where on earth you are located, it's a matter of initial velocity and direction. The Coriolis effect does not have enough of "motion" to effect draining vortexes as small as the water coming down a drain. Weather patterns (like tornados and hurricanes) are a different story. People often get the two confused. Therefore, I'm giving myself a correct answer for #11.


#20 what is a 'standard' car? Out of the four cars I currently own, three of them have four bolt patterns and only one has a five bolt pattern.

OK, off my soapbox now...

#4 wrong (4 out of 5 colors, forgot blue)

#8 wasn't sure what a "standard" pack was

#13 forget there is no channel "1"

#15 change it to Michigan and see if people know

#22 Elvis wasn't the correct answer

24 out of 29, if you don't count the three previously mentioned questions above.
