1. yes, everywhere has a 3rd, 4th, and 5th of July.
2. One a year :)
3. Again all of them have 28, more have more. Actullay its a rather interesting story behind that..
4. no, I think he'd already be dead.
5. hmm...maybe I'm way off here, but if you divide 30 by 1/2that is the same as multipling it by 2. (help me out here gradbeth) so ...70?
6. 1? (missed te trick there)
7. 1 hour? Then you'll be out of pills?
8. 9 (redundant question :)
9. 1?
10. there are 12 two cent stamps in a set of a dozen.

1. Yes. It's when they mourn the loss of the US.
2. One. I remember mine vividly. Oh the faces of disappointment.
3. All months have 28 days. Except Sleuthember, which has only 10 for subscribers.
4. The man's dead, so I think not. Zombie weddings are still highly controversial.
5. Seventy. Boy do I hate math.
6. Assuming I didn't actually have the three apples to start with, two. Here, have one Snow White!
7. Sixty, from the moment I take a pill. Mmm, pills.
8. The farmer gets rid of the dead ones right? So nine. Rest in peace, poor sheep.
9. By remarkable coincidence, the answer is the same as the number of years Noah spent wandering in the desert.
10. Twelve. There ARE two cent stamps right? Gosh, soon I'll be trying to outguess my second guesses.
(And a pound of lead IS SO heavier than a pound of feathers.)

If you want to be a weirdo, the answer to 10 can also be 6 if you interpret the "two" in "two cent stamps" as a quantity of "cent stamps".

2) Members of what religious sect founded PA?
3) PA is home to what famous forecasting groundhog?
4) What was the name of Ben Franklin's journal?
5) What word is misspelled on the Liberty Bell?
6) What PA sports franchise is the losingest (in terms of most losses) in US history?
7) What famous ice cream treat originated in PA in 1904?
8) The US Articles of Confederation (the preConstitution Constitution) were adopted in what PA city (hint: it's not Philadelphia as named in the document)?
9) At what PA nuclear plant was the first major US nuclear accident?
10) What nickname is associated with the city of Philadelphia?
