Well that was fun. I got six so I guess that's a pass right? That was kinda neat but I wonder how much of it is factually accurate? lmao.... There I go over analyzing something again. Naw... Not really but I do tend to think too much, happy Mylotting!

I admit I was thinking that too. My smart aleck friend Holly got 10 right. And right after that I got an e-mail from her titled "to my smart friends." lol

Well I only got 6 right and half of them were guesses but I like you I wonder how real they are. By the way there is nothing wrong with analysis and I doubt anyone can think too much. Admittedly I have been accused of being both myself. I think it just comes naturally and what is natural cannot be bad for you. Can it?

The Germany one's wrong, sez my husband who is German!

Curious quiz. I got 6 out of 11 but some of those were guesses. I knew nothing about German attitudes to forks or the reasons. The fish one sounded quite strange as well. I think the easiest one was the ketchup in France, I can almost hear the chef screaming about someone asking for such an appalling thing in his restaurant.

Yep,ketchup in France was a gimme. But my husband's German and he disagrees with that one!

I thought that one was a bit strange as well. I have never noticed Germans cutting their sausages with their forks in stead of their knives.

It was potatoes, but still, they use their knives for everything!

I enjoyed that quiz. I got 4 out of 11, so I really need to get out and see the world. Goodness half of those questions really would suit my Husband as he throws things on the floor and burps often when eating.

I got 8 out of 11, I think I did this months ago, and got about the same score.

Anybody within 5 years of me is NOT old. I'm sure it's because you're smart or widely read or widely traveled or something.

Yeah I love that one. but considering some of the superstitious stuff my mother-in-law comes up with (she's half polish), I should not have been surprised!

I don't know what's more surprising to me really, the fact that I only got 7 out of 11; or the realization that in a past life I may have been an Inuit!

That was a cute little quiz. I reached 7 out of 11. Some I just guessed and some I kind of had knowledge of already. It is interesting to read about all of the different eating habits in the world around us!

Not bad, I only know of 2 people who did better. I got a lousy 5 myself.
