Ok, I just sent my answers, if it's not too late. I didn't have time to think much about my answers, so I'll probably do even worse than last time. I'll just be happy if none of them are out-and-out wrong.

The Sheep Supercomputer* is compiling the information now. If you'd like to play and haven't, you've got about 15 minutes left before polls close.


*Me and an Excel spreadsheet.

Our referees today will be:


Jay Nady, seen here settling an argument between Venusian and JasonF.



Ľuboš Micheľ, seen here begrudgingly allowing Red Dog's answer of "eye blinking" as one of the inalienable rights.



Tucker Carlson, whom no one likes.

I just want to point out that ONLY JasonF and Pharoh answered, exactly, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. Exactly.
