Well not quite to the standard of some 'mites', but I am very happy with 10/12. :D Thanks again to Johan for putting these challenges together. :clap: I look forward to the answers though!

I am not sure how to take 'mites' reaction to the previous challenge where a twist in the tail provided some extra incentive to dig for information in parts of books where 'mites never go... The reaction varied from high praise to silent treatment that ignored the extra questions... So, what to do? I have already set the next challenge (#19) to again include another stinger at the end... Should I take it out, or should I post as is and see what you guys and gals make of it?

Hey there Johan - bring it on...... :thumbs_up: My feeling is that this is a great way of expanding one's general knowledge and ability. I "fluffed" up #18 by just getting 10/12 compared to so many that got it all right.....but I am all for learning from one's mistakes. So, please keep the stingers coming.....

Don't take anything out Johan! Although there were many 'mites who got 100% for #18, I am sure all of us had to use more guides and do more reading as well, which is a good thing! :thumbs_up:

Thanks for all your hard work. :D
