Okay, sorry I haven't had a chance to get on here and post the quiz. I know how much you guys need your fix. So here goes. Each answer will be a specific value, you get zero points if you hit it dead-on, and one point for every increment (whole number, day, etc.) you're off by. The person with the lowest score will be the winner.

1. Diameter of the moon. (km)
2. Land area of Canada. (sq. km)
3. How many feet are in a leauge?
4. How many imperial bushels in a register ton?
5. Year that New York's Central Park opened.
6. Year that the lance was discontinued as an official battle weapon of the
British Army.
7. Acres of pizza eaten by Americans on a daily basis.
8. Number of dimples on a regulation golf ball.
9. Number of ways to make change for a US dollar.
10. Number of misspelled entries in Webster's 1996 Dictionary.

I really didn't consider how long this is going to take to score, but it's already written, so it's my own punishment.
