Fact or Crap? 2015 Edition
« on: January 01, 2015, 08:54:40 AM »
Happy New Year!
Another year; a new calendar...  A new chance to beat the pants off of PANTS!.... ::)

This is a game of wits with the "Calendar Writer Monkey", known as the CWM.  Each weekday throughout the year, a question will be posed, which is either true or false.  Past experience has shown that the CWM occasionally gets it wrong.  In these cases, if the CWM's answer is demonstrably incorrect, everyone will get credit for a correct answer.  In cases where the answer is murky, or can be interpreted either way, or otherwise inclusive, the CWM's answer will prevail for the purposes of this game.

I'm going to try a different scoring scheme this year; A correct answer will be awarded 2 points, and an incorrect answer will get 1 point.  A no-answer will get no points.

Let's get started, and have fun!

Dammit - how did I miss day one!

Oh well.

Well, 30 inches is quite high for a mouse.
