Not entirely correct, but guess i didn't do enough research, this was more complicated than i remember from junior high:

1. Union between Norway and Sweden: 1319-1343 (24 years)

2. Kalmar Union, between Norway, Sweden and Denmark 1397-1523 (126 years)



3. Union between Norway and Denmark: 1537-1814 (277 years)



4. Union between Norway and Sweden: 1814-1905 (91 years) correct!

mmmmmmm - K then - thinking cap on.

I might again, as I have done before, try a visual question - making it more a true brain quiz - and not a Wikipedia / Google quiz.

So - not too hard then - so as to not hurt any one's brains : Smile

What do you say to a 3 eyed man, with no arms - and 1 leg that is hitchhiking as you stop to pick him up.

Answer - " Eye Eye Eye, You look armless - hop in."

And this is how he lost his arm - patting a Shark -

The Question is :

What is the type of Shark ??? - Scientific Name and or common Name's will be accepted.

Good idea!

I couldn't install this at my Vista laptop, but this screenshot is taken from one of my favorite games, a gem of an old classic:



What's the name of the game?

( have you tried running it in compatibility mode ? )


I will hazard a guess and say : Civilization IV.

I do not have nor have I played this game - so it really is just a gut feeling.

You got that right.

Need a clue? It's a city-building game set in the roman age. You play as a roman governor, building cities, expanding the empire, and defending it against the enemies of Rome.
