Tuesday’s answers

Monday’s questions were:

1. It’s nieve in Spanish, neige in French and hukarere  in Maori – what is it in English?

2. Who said: ”I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is:  I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute.”? 

3. Who were the first three presidents of the United States?

4. What is uxoricide?

5. What do PR, and SOA and SOB stand for in medicine?

Points for answers:

Andrei got four right and a bonus for correcting my spelling.

David got 2 2/3 with a bonus for extra information.

Bearhunter got three and a bonus for lateral thinking.

Gravedodger – I think an aegrotat is used for illness or indisposition of the student not communications but I’ll give you a bonus for answering under difficulty plus four right.

PDM got 1 1/3 with a bonus for imagination, history, geography and social studies. (Having been to weddings in Argentina, I agree about learning from other cultures).

Adam got two and a bonus for the deputy.

Spud got all 5 and wins the electronic bouquet.

Tuesday’s answers follow the break:

1. Snow.

2. Rebecca West.

3. George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson.

4. Killing your wife.

5. Per rectum, swelling of ankles, shortness of breath. (SOA is given as swelling of ankles in Shott’s Original Miscellany which was my source but I’m accepting seen on arrival).

    My answers for the medical acronyms came from my beautiful Lili who will soon graduate as a nurse and has recently had a placement in ED – which is where she wants to end up working.

    Perhaps the Seen On Arrival reflects the ED experience?

    Is consultation of family legitimate for the quiz? I did acknowledge Liliana in my answer so I guess it is.

    If not I’ll do “an electronic” deduction of one

    Oh no – was my previous comment spam filtered?

    I wonder why?


  3. homepaddock says:

    Oh yes it was spam filtered. I have no idea why but I’ve rescued it.

    Consultation of family is fine – I sometimes consult mine for the questions.

    Good lord HP – if that is Spud from Red Alert you are honoured.

    I wonder why?

    ED is also a medical abbreviation, for a complaint spammers seem to think most of the world suffer from…
