    Very entertaining, but I don't recall studying any of this in High
    School except the 100 years war.


    "100 years war" is misleading since it lasted over a hundred years AND
    it was not continuous. I think it was Wikipedia that said it was a series
    of separate wars. (Joan of Arc was involved.)

    RE: camel hair brushes, I read years ago they were made of sable fur.
    Checking today I see they can be just about anything except camel:
    sable, goat, badger, pony, squirrel, ox, etc.

    And we couldn't have studied the black box as it didn't exist in those
    ancient times when I was a schoolboy.

    My score, even though I've seen this test before, was only 3. Guess I'll have
    to go back to school. But wait! I don't have a backpack.

    Thanks for the tantalizing test of tortuous trivia, Victoria.
