It's not where you're born it's where you're from. Also, you can be "from" two different states.

Indeed. I consider myself to be from two different states. Ironically, I was born in neither of them. So technically, I'm from more than two states.

Good quiz! I say that as someone from Tennessee but not born there.

Um, am I the only one who thought male for the the well-endowed country singer? Never could come up with an answer...

OK, I'll cop to it as well. I was fixin' to Google it, then did a face palm when I saw Dolly.

Me too, but I'm at work, so Googling that would have been a very bad idea...

I had the same idea. Didn't occur to me to think of female endowments.

please accept different spellings of Michael Oher. In the movie Sandra Bullock even says, "Oher, like a paddle on a boat" or something, so it could easily be confused as Oar or Ore

Justin Timberlake is from Millington. Shelby Forest isn't really a city; it's an area of town.

Right, because 111-game winning streaks just occur while the coach sits back on the bench, hands folded behind his head, legs stretched out, feet crossed, right?

Geno Auriemma: 11 National Championships; .880 winning percentage (991-135) over 32 seasons.

Pat Summitt: 8 National Championships; .841 winning percentage (1,098-208) over 39 seasons.

why does just the last name not work for the Monkey trial question? Unless the question specifies other, usually just a last name is acceptable

And his full name doesn't work, either. I tried John Thomas Scopes and Scopes, and neither worked.

"Scopes" should work by itself.

As the previous comments mentioned, 'Scopes' should work because it is his last name. The last name only works for every other person on this quiz.
