Did some reading on the Richter scale just recently actually after the terrible events in Nepal. I was interested to find out that the Richter scale is not really in use anymore despite the media using the term. Most use the moment magnitude scale. Not that this information is in any way pertinent to this quiz...

sort of like the 'F' scale with tornadoes. Since the mid 2000s, meteorologists have used the Enhanced Fujita scale. The storms are now rated EF0-EF5, but likely because of the popularity of the movie Twister, media coverage still refers to them as F0-F5 storms.

Coulda sworn First Blood was a Bruce Lee film. Never actually seen any Rambo, although I do like Stallone.

Kris Kristofferson was a Rhodes Scholar, if ya didn't know...
