Test your knowledge with this

Post by Menu_9_Stew » Tue Feb 16, 2010 2:20 am

Soooo... I hope this is a good place to post this. I have come across a rather odd quiz on the internet that involves the question "Army Meal or Airline Meal?". I did not do so well because they have an odd mixture of international rations and some old LRP rations. The airline meals look bad. I have no idea what my score was (it was low).

I got 1500...not too bad, I guess.

Some of those were tricky!

I only got 1300 points myself. But you know you're in trouble when you miss a question and the answer says they took the picture from your own web site. :-)

In fact...now that I look at the "answers" page linked above, I see a lot of pictures taken from my own kitchen counter! Heh heh...that's pretty funny. I especially like how I missed Question 14 - Army meal - Dhingri Mutter potatoes and veg with rice. That's not even an army meal - I bought that Indian entree from a grocery store and added some white rice to it to make that meal. I answered that it was a civilian meal, they said it was an army meal. And I even took the picture! Too funny....

Great quiz, Menu_9_Stew - thanks for passing it along!

Yeah kman, I was only able to get the Ratatouille question right because it looked familiar. That was because it was a Dutch ration picture that I had read about on your website. Also, the Indian food question left me scratching my head because I was trying to figure out if it was an HDR or something- now I know.
