Don't worry, I think they are used to it by now.

The dreaded 'maintenance cycle' bit me today.  2200 seconds for only 5 right - and no points!

I do know that biological has something to do with washing clothes.  Does nomenclature mean the lack of men cluttering up an area, or women's fashion?  So, perhaps it has something to do with washing women's clothing?

Hokay then. Could anyone please explain question 9 from today's quiz?

THE QUESTION: Jennifer O'Neill did an ad for Off-Track Betting (in New York): 'Jenny and the Bets'.
THE CHOICES:
  Elton John
  Billy Joel
  Rod Stewart
  Buddy Holly
PART OF THE ANSWER:
'Bennie and the Jets'. Close enough.

I actually got it right... I just don't get it.

I got the song as well. Then who sang it?  I think I put Elton John.

Elton John sang "Benny and the Jets".
I'm guessing whoever set the quiz missed out "Whose song was the campaign based on?"

That question about vegetables today...I didn't even understand the question.

Some people come through with lots of different vegetables, but I only put one number in. This is because they got the food from the 1500.

Your Answer: salad bar
For the salad bar, we have to put in different tare numbers depending on what container the people put the food in. That way the customer isn't charged for the container.

I got the right answer by a calculated guess (my other one would have been 'produce man', which would have been wrong.  I still don't understand what '1500' means.
