    Not a clue! Though I think the most intelligent animal is up for grabs... Gorillas and chimpanzees have always been up there, elephants have exceptional memory and emotional intelligence (though they do appear to be afraid of mice), dolphins have even been ruled "non-human persons" in several countries, and orcas are probably right there with them.

    Also... the DNA of wheat has a LOT more pairs than ours does. Oddly enough, I learned that in a data management class...

    Mappow is doing good! #2#3#4 are correct. #1 & #5 are incorrect. But still quite brilliant! Particularly since I believe he used no search engines.

    If no one does better by midnight he is still a winner. Even if someone comes up with the correct answers to #1 & #5, then we will have 2 winners and both get a $25 certificate. I believe that will be fair. 4 hours 10 minutes to go.

    We are back. Mappow is the winner.
    The answer to #1. The 1958 Kentucky Wildcats.
    #5 91 years & 12 days. Daniel and Susan Bakeman of New York.. Daniel Bakeman is also acknowledged as the last American survivor of the Revolutionary War. (1775-1783).

    Here is some of that incredible story. A record marriage that may well last forever. On their wedding day in 1772, Daniel was 12 and Susan 14.
