what you should do is see who gets more trivia right than pass the torch to them. So if Bucky got the most right....you dont post the answers till after, then he gets the right to post other trivia questions.........whatchya think?

besides, i'm too lazy to make up trivia questions. and how many questions can certain people make up about saskatoon berries?

truth or crap: saskatoon berries are like blueberries, but harder and less flavorful.

yes, yes, I know! The Canadians also got the worst of it during the Dieppe raid (rehearsal for Normandy), if memory serves.

And let's not forget the participation of the AnZac troops in the Pacific theater.

Didn't mean no offense, Ken.
