-2. Which ancient philosopher said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation”?

-4. Where is the highest non-Asian mountain, and what is its name?
-5. It’s a Studebaker compact model or a small terrestrial bird with an extravagant song and display flight.
-6. Name two vegetables included in the group called “nightshades”.7. What is the name of the Frank Lloyd Wright house built over a waterfall in rural Pennsylvania?
-8. What’s the name of the structure that connects your “two” brains?

Good answers! wave

Other possible answers for #6 are eggplant, tomatoes and tomatillos

And my goofs on the logo puzzle made me take a closer look at this one. Esube answered #7, not 4, so #4 is back up for grabs. crazy
