haha this is like that quiz in grade school where you are supposed to read the instructions before answering the questions. The instructions say skip to the last question which is to write you name and put the pencil down. But everybody dives right into the questions with out reading the instructions (which includes instructions such as barking like a dog).

So who submitted their answers and when? Please don’t provide the answers.

There are some of the questions that the answer could be debated, so this could be interesting.

Ha, short of cheating (which I’m sure everyone else will be doing) I couldn’t possibly win this.

But maybe you guys could throw our brothers up North a little love. They’re basically America Lite. :P

What can you do y’know? A HDTV is on the line, the most I could do was skim the rules. It was never mentioned in the rules anyway. It was between the questions and rules…

As a matter of Fact, year Answer 3 is tied between two but it ask for blockbuster, so that should be easier.
