Anyone else notice the image has two aces of spades? Holding both of those cards at the same time could get you severely beaten up (or worse).

A country bumpkin here, but millers make lots of things besides flour, they also produce sorghum and sugar cane.

Don't millers rather produce something FROM sorghum and sugar cane? Those are plants, which then get milled into flour or sugar. But I doubt there's a mill anywhere that cranks out plants....

Everything, but Superman. I had a feeling it started with 'K' and had two parts, but nothing beyond that. I think I only knew that because it came up on another quiz somewhere else on this site.

It is. From Wiktionary:
"Dreamt" is less common than "dreamed" in both US and UK English in current usage, though somewhat more prevalent in the UK than in the US.

"Human spacecraft" sounds like a vessel for transporting humans. Google "craft definition" and the second definition is "a boat or ship". The definition of spacecraft is "a vehicle used for traveling in space," and a vehicle is "a thing used for transporting people or goods". Sputnik 1 was not a vessel, nor a vehicle capable of transporting people or things and, therefore, not a spacecraft of any type, let alone a human spacecraft. (It was transported to space in a vehicle called a Sputnik-PS.) It was the first man-made object to orbit the Earth, or the first artificial satellite.

Yuri Gagarin first orbited the Earth in Vostok 3KA-3, commonly known as Vostok . Glenn was preceded in space by two Americans, Alan B. Shepard Jr. and Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, and two Soviets, Yuri A. Gagarin and Gherman S. Titov. In April 1961, Gagarin was the first man in space, and his spacecraft Vostok 1 made a full orbit before returning to Earth
