    The Official DBR Quiz

    OK boys and girls. Chill out, kick back and prepare for immense quantities of fun. To lighten the mood and provide a different topic of conversation, I present the first-ever Official DBR Quiz. To the winner goes a very, very special prize. Read on.
    First, the rules.
    1) Answer the questions in this thread, but do it in white. That way, no one can read your answers without highlighting. More on that in a second, but you can change the font color by clicking on the "quote" as a reply to this message or "going advanced" off a quick reply, then clicking on the A (to the right of "sizes") and changing the color.
    2) Don't cheat by highlighting other answers. You're only cheating yourself. (Well, and everyone else.) And being really lame.
    3) The person who answers the most questions correctly wins the super-duper prize. If there is a tie ... well ... I haven't figured out how to break a tie, yet.
    4) What is the prize? Glad you asked. The winner gets to ... moderate me for a day! That's right. You can send me on an all-expense made trip to "you-own-me-ville!" Force me to delete or edit anything I post -- I am yours. Do with me as you please. (But be gentle; I am delicate.)
    PM me with any comments, questions or jokes about Jason Evans.

    So I'm not going to answer these, as I already have the power to moderate Jumbo, but I think Jumboe did a really nice job with this, and hopefully once the quiz is graded we can enlighten folks to the stories behind the answers that they don't know!

    Well done, Jumbo. (And yes, that will be the last public comment you recieve from me!)
