I believe the QWERTY sequence answer must be the easiest one, unless you haven't use a keyboard in your whole life

And yet more people get Superman's planet and Popeye's girlfriend... Maybe it's because in some countries the QWERTY is actually QWERTZ (German-speaking countries) or even AZERTY (France, if I'm not mistaken). Not to mention the countries where, the Latin alphabet is not the main one...

Not everybody realises that qwerty refers to the keyboard? Also no, not all devices come with the "standard english keyboard layout", there are *loads* of alternatives. Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout .

I had forgotten that for more than 40 years, but now that you mentioned it, that's what we called it too, though out of ignorance, some of us called it "bombardament. I never cared for it, because it just seemed unfair and somewhat cruel to the less-coordinated and slower kids. That always bothered me.

Granted, I'm a woman, so it wouldn't apply to me. But I don't believe anyone is required to register for the draft in the US anymore anyway.

I wondered about that - can someone reference a source that the draft is still in effect? I thought it was abolished after the Vietnam War.

Perhaps "Selective Service" should be the answer, and "Draft" should be an acceptable type-in. This would be a more correct way to answer it.

Agree completely. There is no draft, currently. But all young men still must register with Selective Service.

Are we automatically registered at 18? I certainly didn't register. I have never heard of anyone doing that. Also, that description of dodgeball is hilarious and accurate. I never thought of it that way before, but it's a pretty brutal game. Still love it though.

No, you must actually register for the Selective Service. The current army is an all volunteer army but Uncle Sam wants to keep track of you just - in- case!

Yeah, you have to actively register yourself. You need it if you're applying for financial aid, or any federal job, and I don't think you're allowed to vote if you haven't signed up...? I think I remember a line about the SSS while I was registering to vote in CA, but I can't recall fully. There are penalties, like five years in jail if you don't but I don't think it's very strictly enforced.

Netherlands only controls bonaire. Aruba and curaçao are independent countries in the kingdom of the Netherlands (not that one wouldn't get the answer because of knowing this distinction, but still needed to be said)

Please check your facts MORE CAREFULLY. Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao are all within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Bonaire as a non-contiguous state if you will [much like Alaska and Hawaii are to the USA] Aruba and Curacao (& Sint Maarten) are COUNTRIES within the Kingdom. As the quiz master is so fond of reminding us, saying, they are NOT SOVEREIGN nations.
