    quiz

    The one with the most merit?

    In a cage!

    (a) seize the day

    (c) step aside and hide the peanuts, but (a) is also a possibility.


    When day and night are equal in length.

    That was sooo much fun :) Thanx

    1. Yes.
    2. Definitely. (Behind glass)
    3. No, majuscule means large.
    4. Yes and no. He's coming at full speed. He's not likely to slow down for you so you can hop aboard.

    (They have a new word every day. The first one is yesterday's word now (September 25).)

    Poor Casiopea's answer:

    3. seize the day

    Quiz Master's reply:

    3. No, majuscule means large.

    But..teacher, wasn't majuscule used in Europe, specifically in England, during the 3rd and 6th centuries? Doesn't that make 'carpe deim' the right choice? Hep me, I'm drowning in scule.
