Today's Trivia Quiz

jasdipNovember 8, 2012

Yesterday's question had nothing to do with cookware...

If you're older than say 35 or 40 you've probably owned a spider. What was it, and what was it used for?

A: A little plastic disc used in the centre to spin a 45 record.

Today I'd like you to make words using only the top row of the keys.

Interesting! I had many of those adapters, but I don't recall them being called spiders. Was that a regional thing?

Gotta think a bit on today's question.
Pouty, pout, power, quiet, quo, qi, quirt (for a start- sadly, it is a busy day- gotta run!)

Oh. I thought you mean 1234567890!@#$%^&*()_-+= which one is the "top row"?

01134, upside-down on a calculator is hello (actually, you'd have to put a . to make the zero stay put)

Yes, I have a bunch of those plastic thingies, but never heard them called spiders. I even googled it and that did not come up. Oh well.

Presuming you mean the Qwerty row:

Power
Pity
Ripe
Row
Queer
Trip
Out
You
Type
Write
Typewriter

I have a feeling I am falling for a joke.

Yea, see? I thought that'd be too easy. I could likely go on forever as that is something I'm good at. Way too easy.

Never heard the adapter called a spider....always an adapter.

My keyboard's top row is all function keys.

I'm thinking you can't use the same letter twice in a word. Some more...
