Thank you everyone for your help and wishes of good luck. Every little bit helps, and the consensus that this isn't cheese is a huge step forward. I just wish I would have seen it before I spent three hours looking at cookbooks.

Our guess is that we're going to have to identify each of the objects, but the trickiest part of these pictures, is we don't know what the question will be, just that a question will be asked about this photo. It can make you go crazy.

Looks more like chocolate to me.

Looks to me like something was dropped, cause stuff at near the bottom seems to be falling off.

But I have no idea, and it may or not be food, but I kinda doubt it.

In any event if I get any ideas will post them, but I have certainly been bested.

I am going to post this before I read any of the other replies to give you an honest first impression.

#2 Looks like Italian Marble to me
#7 looks like Sphagmum Peat Moss
#8 Looks like Limestone
#9 looks like cellulose insulation (the kinds that's blown in).

#4 and #6 appear to be the same thing (#4 looks like Fiberglass Insulation) but look closer at the righthand-lower area of #6, a layer of it is peeling away. It looks like paper or cheesecloth.

I've run it through every image filter I have and I can't get the picture any clearer. :(

To me, it looks like what happens when different woods (or substandard immitations) are soaked in water. Like maybe a commercial for woods/particle boards that have different sealants on them. Like an ad for "Thompson's Water Seal" saying how much better their product holds up to the elements, while their competitors do not.
How about that for throwing in a monkey wrench?

So far all I really notice is that numbers 1 and 9 are (somewhat) similar, 2 and 8 are similar, 3 and 7 are similar, 4 and 6 are similar, and number 5 is one-of-a-kind. Also, the top ones are smaller than the ones at the bottom that they are similar to. This is going to drive me nuts! I hope you will tell us the answer when it is all over!
