  1. 9 of 10. The one device looked very much like an inclinometer on a ship.

  2. 7 of 10. Amazing what has been invented. When taking the "patent" course work, it was so much fun wandering through all of the thousands of odd ball concepts that creative minds have come up with, including the "Big Mac."

  3. I should have paid more attention. That one thing looked like one of those piano timers (I don't know what they are called); so 9 of 10.

    1. I tried to zoom in on my phone to make sure it wasn't a metronome, but my pastor was starting to get suspicious. :)

    1. Baysider,
      Funny thing about that first one: I got it right away. Then again, considering the situation in this household...not a surprise.

      Glad that you enjoyed the quiz. Too much politics, and we all overdose!

  6. Couldn't find the quiz. All I got when I clicked was an ADVERTISEMENT for Smithsonian! Phooey!!!

    As for the sketch at the head of the post, it looks to me like a CLOCK made to look like a BOMB by some psychotic Islamic Mischief Maker. };-)>

    1. FT,
      If all you see is an advertisement, look for the arrow that indicates "continue to site."

    1. FT,
      Number 1 = a snow board for disabled people.

      The one that looks like a metronome was a device for measuring temperature.

      Glad that you were able to access the quiz, FT!
