You have definately never lived in a cowtown if you think that cowboys aren't animals :)

Right on the name, but Dawn Wells was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. Who woulda thunk. Wiz gets to ask the next question.

I remember in the 70's there were buyers going thru the cowboy towns and buying a brand new pair of Levi's for cowboys who would trade them the faded washed out jeans they were wearing. The cowboys always did it because new jeans are very desirable to them, for whatever reason. The worn out jeans were sold in Japan for hundreds of dollars a pair.

Good for Dawn. You would think the professor would have demanded that clause too.



Hindsight is always 20/20. Its like Bill Gates saying in 1997 that if you told him in 1990 that McDonalds would have their web address on TV commercials, he would have thought you were insane. In 1964 nobody could imagine the explosion of cable TV that was right around the corner and would need a constant feeding regimen of old TV shows from the 60's. Whats funny is CBS didn't renew the copyright on the first 2 seasons of the Beverly Hillbillies and those 55 shows are in the public domain and anybody can show them without paying CBS. How many millions have they lost over that little gaff.

You are correct sir.

Browns
Cowboys
Packers
Texans
Chiefs
Vikings
Patriots
Saints
Giants
Jets
Raiders
Steelers
Chargers
49ers
Buccaneers
Titans
Redskins



I'm gonna say that this list is incomplete...Being an unfortunate Buffalo Bills fan, the team is named after 1945 AAFC team who had the name Buffalo Bills. This team took their name from a popular barbershop quartet, who in turn took their name from Buffalo Bill Cody.

Reno, wow. Who would have thought such a sinful state could produce such a wholesome pie-baking girl.

Next question: What is the 4th most populous country in the world? I'll grade the answers in about 24 hours time. You may also PM me your answer, if you wish.

Indenosia. I'm 40% confident. I'd have been less confident had I not lost a trivia question on the third most populous country a few years back.

Edit: damn the iPhone spell checker. I won't edit my original spelling, so if in right it's up to the wizard to accept the spelling or not.

I'm guessing Bangladesh.

China -> India -> Indonesia -> Bangladesh

The Professor?

He can make a radio out of a coconut, but can't fix the damn boat, and you expect him to have thought about residuals!?!?
