.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Doesn't work in linux-opera, mozilla, or firefox. I am not impressed by bad coding.

I got 13.  Nope Mici, it's still only 50.  Hawaii joined the Union in 1959.

The question was hot dog buns in a pack and it is 8

Dare to guess how many hot dogs are in a standard pack of hot dogs?  (hint:  it is not 8)  :-x

OK I went to the other browser and tried it. Now I did get 19 right.... But I knew I had one of them wrong just as I clicked the button. So should I get credit for that one?

22.  But I disagree with the "correct" answer of the number of hot dogs in a standard package.

Was it hot dogs or the buns? Use to be one of them had one number and the other had more or less.

But I have thought of that lately as I have noticed both packages now have the same number.
