March 4, 2008 question

So this is it, the March 4 must win for Hilary Clinton. I'm pretty sure Barack Obama also would like to win a primary or two today, but more than anything, I just want it to be over. Right now it's really just a question of which 5th grade teacher you're gonna get. Is it the cool young guy who throws all the rules of teaching out the window and makes learning fun? Or is it the strict, scary old hag who thinks even recess should be conducted professionally? One way, you learn things you'd never thought you would learn and you grow as a person. With the other, you detest life, but you're practically ready for college by Christmas.

Of course, in the end you could wind up with hardened military veteran who is funny and tells great stories, but if your homework is late, he'll shove bamboo shoots under your fingernails. Ooh, the excitement. Here's today's question:

What is the capital of Zambia?

Also, mucho kudos to those who knew yesterday's question was a trick. The funny thing was, everyone (no matter what their answer was) based their answers on the suspicion I was trying to trick them. Which I was. But the trick was that it really was too easy. Ferdinand Magellan discovered the Strait of Magellan. Good thing, too, because if you can't find your own Strait, what hope is there for you. Here's who knew:

Karen H (the H stands for How Did That Get There?)
Steve T (the T stands for Tough To Circumnavigate The Globe Without A Strait)

You're all fantastic.
