    Apparently, the Beijing Olympics have been cancelled because the Chinese are finding it hard to dig up a team....

    (Apologies if that offends anyone. Reprimand expected.)

    thanks for posting that link, the graphics were entertaining! I got 60%, we don't have any experience with earthquakes here. When we lived in nz we had one that woke me up in the middle of the night. I thought it was someone trying to break into the house as the windows were rattling, I woke up DH in a panic and he told me to 'go back to sleep dear its just an earthquake' we still laugh about that.

    Koko, what are we going to do with you?

    I also got 60%, though I would have gotten a couple more right if I'd answered with what I normally do rather than what I thought they wanted. Teach me to try and second-guess a quiz.

    What's an Earthquake?, is it something to do with this Rugby thing I keep hearing about?
