August 7, 2008 question


Brett Favre is back. Back in the NFL, but donning non-Green Bay green for the first time in his career. He's a Jet, now, and let me tell you, when you're a Jet, you're a Jet till the end. But when you're in Darfur, the only neighboring countries you have to turn to are Libya, Central African Republic, and Chad. (Not a smooth transition, I know, but neither is the one from Green Bay to New York, so I'm giving myself a break, okay?)

Here's who knew yesterday's answer, followed by the number of correct countries they named and the points they earned as a result:

Heather M (the M stands for Make It There), 1
Karen M (the M stands for Make It Anywhere), 3
Charles, 2

So the standings now, with two days left to make it back into the running for a medal, look like this:

Trivia Olympiad--Geography
Karen M: 4
Charles: 3
Paul K: 2
Karen H: 2
Steve J: 1
Mathias: 1
Heidi: 1
Maridee: 1
Heather M: 1

Whew, baby! It's getting tight! The suspense is killing me. Please, end my pain by answering this question:

Which is longer, the circumference of the earth at the equator or its circumference at the poles?
A. The equator is longer.
B. The circumference at the poles is longer.
C. They're both the same.
D. The earth is flat, silly.

it is wider/longer at the equator than the poles, the earth is a little bit squatty
