well I got 8 wrong... but in Canada there are 12 buns in a bag, just enough to cover a bag of hotdogs. And cars now have 4 lugnuts (the vast majority).... but I'm not sour or anything :wink:

But I did remember Bashful... pretty proud of that accomplishment :D

Great test though, really makes you use the ole noodle.

Canadian coins, matches are in a standard pack,

I Disagree with -
18. How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel? ( 8 ) - -
(American Cars & ½ ton Pick-up Trucks = ( 6 ) - Foreign Cars = ( 4 ) – ¾ ton Pick-m-ups = ( 8 ) – One Ton Pick-ups (?) –( 8 ) Big Ones???
