    Wanted to let you know that the question about the tongue being the strongest muscle in the body is incorrect. I put no and got it wrong.

    "Some think the tongue is the strongest muscle in the human body, but it’s difficult to find any definition of “strength” that would indicate this. There is no one way to measure strength and the tongue consists of eight muscles, not one."

    You also may want to recheck the question about having to have a hunting license to buy a mousetrap in California. The way it is worded is confusing.

    The fortune cookie question is also wrong....

    One history of the fortune cookie claims that David Jung, a Chinese immigrant living in Los Angeles and founder of the Hong Kong Noodle Company, invented the cookie in 1918. Concerned about the poor he saw wandering near his shop, he created the cookie and passed them out free on the streets. Each cookie contained a strip of paper with an inspirational Bible scripture on it, written for Jung by a Presbyterian minister.

    Another history claims that the fortune cookie was invented in San Francisco by a Japanese immigrant named Makoto Hagiwara. Hagiwara was a gardener who designed the famous Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. An anti-Japanese mayor fired him from his job around the turn of the century, but later a new mayor reinstated him. Grateful to those who had stood by him during his period of hardship, Hagiwara created a cookie in 1914 that included a thank you note inside. He passed them out at the Japanese Tea Garden, and began serving them there regularly.

    The 'where is the london bridge' question has two answers in it that are right. It's both in England and the US, but the question only allows the US as being right. Now, it is true that the Tower Bridge is often called the London bridge. But this is mainly because people confuse the two bridges, that are quite near eachother, parallel. London definitely has a London bridge though!

    They Pyramid of Giza is not located in Cairo.

    The Giza pyramid complex (Arabic: أهرامات الجيزة‎, IPA: [ʔɑhɾɑˈmɑːt elˈɡiːzæ], "pyramids of Giza") is an archaeological site on the Giza Plateau, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt.

    This complex of ancient monuments includes the three pyramid complexes known as the Great Pyramids, the massive sculpture known as the Great Sphinx, several cemeteries, a workers' village and an industrial complex. It is located in the Western Desert, approximately 9 km (5 mi) west of the Nile river at the old town of Giza, and about 13 km (8 mi) southwest of Cairo city centre.
