We Still Haven't Scratched the Surface of Knowledge

This is Quiz #16 and I feel like I've only just begun. There is so much information available in books, the television and on the web! I hope you are finding the quizzes interesting and challenging, and will continue to take them as I get each one completed.

I am trying to come up with new questions that you haven't seen (over and over again), and am researching each one with two to three references for each. Remember, you can't believe everything you read on the web, but I hope you will find my quizzes worthy of your trust.

Thanks for stopping by!
