    Here's a quiz that I found interesting. I thought you might enjoy it, too.
    There are 29 questions about things we see every day or have known about
    all our lives. How many can you get right?
    These little simple questions are harder than you think--it just shows
    you how little we pay attention to the common place things of life. Put your
    thinking caps on.
    Mind teasers of COMMON KNOWLEDGE. No cheating! No looking around! No
    using anything on or in your desk or computer!

    Can you beat 18?? (The average is 7) Write down your answers and check
    answers (on the bottom) AFTER completing all the questions.

    REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY
    ARE.

    1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?

    2. How many states are there? (Don't laugh, some people don't know)

    3. In which hand is the Statue of Liberty's torch?

    4. What six colors are on the classic Campbell's soup label?

    5. What two letters don't appear on the telephone dial? (No cheating!)

    6. What two numbers on the telephone dial don't have letters by them?

    7. When you walk does your left arm swing w/your right or left leg?

    8. How many matches are in a standard pack?

    9. On the United States flag is the top stripe red or white?

    10. What is the lowest number on the FM dial?

    11. Which way does water go down the drain, counter or clockwise?

    12. Which way does a "no smoking" sign's slash run?

    13. How many channels on a VHF TV dial?

    14. Which side of a women's blouse are the buttons on?

    15. On a NY license plate, is New York on the top or bottom?

    16. Which way do fans rotate?

    17. Whose face is on a dime?

    18. How many sides does a stop sign have?

    19. Do books have even-numbered pages on the right or left side?

    20. How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?
