Yes, it would make it harder. Judging by the answers so far, harder is not an issue.

Edit: Incorrect answers WILL be allowed in SheepMate questions.

I put them anyway. For both #9 and #20. Because it's the right thing to do.

According to this, only California had a budget gap of more than $3 billion. Illinois was next with $2.8 billion.

Um... are we debating correct answers before answers are even given? I guess people won't have to google for a couple of possibilities now.

A little help from our friend google proves that you are right. Well, I am screwed unless he meant fiscal year '10.

To duel or to make babies together?

Actually, they would probably duel first, then make beautiful babies together.

The question is FUBAR'ed anyway...

It should be thrown out, replaced, or modified.

Everyone just answer the question and then we (I) can vote on whether it should be counted or not.

Once your answers are final I can send you the page I used as a reference and you can feel free to dispute any of the possible answers with futher data. I'm open to correction.
