Game Time!

It’s time to exercise your brain a little bit again. We are going through our games and I found a game that we have with fun questions, so its Game Time! The rules are simple. All you do is leave your best guesses in the comments below. For those who guess the closest to the correct answer there is a prize! Really! But No Googling! Just give it your best shot! I will reveal the answers later tonight.

  1. On average how many ants and termites does a giant anteater swallow each day?
  2. How many bats live in the Bracken Cave in Texas?
  3. In skips, what is the world record for stone skipping?
  4. How many miles can a bee fly in a day?
  5. How many cranberries does it take to make one gallon of cranberry juice?

  2. #1 That depends on how hungry the anteater is. #2 That would vary by the time of the day, there would be more in the daytime as opposed to the nighttime. #3 I’m at a total loss with this one, all of my stones sink on contact and their distance is variable in relation to the size of the stone and the speed with which it is thrown. But honestly, someone actually keeps a record of the distance? #4 As many as it feels like flying. #5 A lot! Thank-you for the diversion and thought provoking questions!

    • Awh! Thanks Gina! That is my object, to make others smile and just forget for a moment the craziness going on right now in the world!
      It was fun to read the guesses and see how close some people actually came! A bee can fly 60 miles in a day! 51 skips with a stone is the world record! I can barely make 5 skips! There are 20 million bats in the cave. I am thinking I don’t want to visit that cave! And it takes 4400 cranberries to make a gallon of juice!

  3. Basest on the lack of any credibility to your questions and answers as a result of almost infinite variables, those who tried hard to come up with numbers for such a futile quiz do not deserve awards.

    1. On average how many ants and termites does a giant anteater swallow each day? That would depend on the type of ants and termites being eaten: the size of the anteater, and the health of the ant eater. Did it have a preference to ants vs termites? What was the mix of ants and termites available for eating? If the anteater was female, then there are other variables.

    2. How many bats live in the Bracken Cave in Texas? How many nuts live in Brazil makes about as much sense.

    3. In skips, what is the world record for stone skipping? I have skipped stones, white lines, paving slabs and many other objects. What child hasn’t tried skipping, but as for a world record? Couldn’t find it in Guinness!

    4. How many miles can a bee fly in a day? What’s the weather? The wind speed and direction? The age and weight of the bee? What is its motivation for flying at all?

    5. How many cranberries does it take to make one gallon of cranberry juice? US gallon? Imperial gallon? Size of cranberries? Any additives/preservatives/sweeteners to consider?

    Awards should be expected by everybody who spent less than 10 secs to come up with answers! As for the “correct answers”? Please validate them, but without the words/terms “based on”, “estimated at”, “in the region of” or similar phrasing.
