Does It Matter... A Monday Mayhem

Welcome to Monday Mayhem.

Today's Meme is a reflection of our participants. It is called the Philippines and the Americans. Let's test our knowledge of our country and others.

Answer these questions as best as you know how. You may learn something new....

What is the 'official name' of each country?

United States of America (USA) and the Republic of the Philippines (RP)

Which country has more people living in it?

it's definitely the US...
almost everyone seems to have moved there or is planning to do so

Name a famous Spanish explorer who had a great impact on each country.

Ferdinand Magellan (for RP) and Christopher Columbus (for USA)...
see, i got straight A's in Social Studies and History

Who has the better shoe collection?
  1. Imelda R. Marcos
  2. Carrie Bradshaw
  3. Harriet
none of the above, says the Sheep... hehe

peace, Harriet mltan100.blogspot.com

What is the shape of a football?
  1. Oval
  2. Round
  3. Don't want to stir up controversy.

don't want to stir up controversy but it was definitely not round

What's the difference between a hurricane and a typhoon?
  1. Same damn thing stupid
  2. Where they occur according to the dateline
  3. One is intended to wipe out Florida the other is intended to keep relatives from moving in.
  4. 1 and 2

"Aside from the name, not much. Both are severe tropical systems that have wind speeds greater than 74 mph.

They are called "hurricanes" in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean and eastern Pacific Ocean. But once your go west across the International Dateline and into the western Pacific Ocean, they're called typhoons. And of course, the Australians, who have colorful names for just about everything, have their own term for hurricanes: "willy-willys."

Typhoons generally tend to be stronger than hurricanes, but only because there's warmer water in the western Pacific and are better conditions for storm development."

so there you go... it's no. 4 although i'm sure that many of you wish it's no. 3 as well

What is the proper spelling of the word ' color '?
  1. Colour
  2. Color
  3. Don't want to stir up controversy.
don't want to stir up controversy... does it even matter how color is spelled???
