  2. Before I try to answer these questions, I need to know what the prize is. Do I get to be a citizen if I get them all right?

    I'm struggling to read past that building. The most phallic? Really? Please don't take this the wrong way, but surely you can do better than that?

  3. @Adullamite - Your answer to #8 is better than mine was, so your answer is now going to be the correct answer for that one. You got a couple others right, but you got the post title wrong, so that probably nullifies Lincoln and Russia. I knew you couldn't get 4 right. You couldn't even get 4 right about Scotland. :)

    @A. - Me? I didn't build it or vote for it. Yes, I can do much better. :)

    Yes, you get to be a citizen if you get them all right. Actually, I thought you already were a citizen. Of something.
