I just love tests I don't have to study for and don't require my blood or urine.

Who said you wouldn't have to send a urine sample to claim your prize???

Laura said...

I want to play. Do I have to write my answers here or just let you know that I'm playing in the privacy of my own home where my incorrect answers are kept secure, not to be mocked by any passerby?

Mad Hadder said...

Either way. I don't really want to have to "check" your answers. Do it at home and be on your honor. As suspected I have some funny friends who are having a hay day with putting Cokeville women into the bathtub and sending Paco to Switzerland at the end of the day.

I'm in. I'm pretty sure I won't win. What kind of crazy questions are those? I love it, though. Hopefully I'm not too late.

This is Kenna. Is this the 7th grade school test you want me to take? I don't know ANY of the answers! Do I just guess??? HELP! :)

Here's an ironic story about GPS cows. 30 years ago, BI Inc. (the company I currently work for) got it's start hooking up milk cows to an "ankle monitor." When the cows went in for feeding, the monitor would log them in and track how many times a day they would eat and for how long. This would help them determine which cows needed to eat more to keep healthy. Later, they decided to hook them up to criminals (too inhumane for cows I guess). Now, over half of the offenders on ankle monitors or GPS trackers are ours. I have a friend who proudly displays Martha Stewart's old monitor on his desk.

And there you have it. The definitive beginnings of ankle bracelets. For the record it's equals IT IS not the possessive as is so frequently used. And once again my disclaimer: I am a professional. Do not attempt understanding grammar on your own.
