Fact or Crap Finale

Fact or Crap


Phantom Facts



Our trivia contest has been a combination of True or False statements from the game Fact or Crap and one or two serious trivia questions that we hope you found challenging and interesting. All correct answers earned one point toward RRHS64 bragging rights and perhaps some yet-to-be-determined prize at our next class event.  To give you all time to get in this last set of answers, your replies must be submitted by midnight Eastern time on Sunday, 9/13.

Answers for 09-07-20:

1.   All living organism on Earth contain carbon.
Fact. Everyone knew that.
2.   St. Clare is the patron saint of television.
Fact. One wrong answer here.
3.   Alpha waves are faster than beta waves.
Crap. One wrong answer here too.

Ed Badstuber - 153 correct answers
Lucy Flynn Schall - 138
Barbara Hendricks Craycraft - 122
Joan Stanbery Holliday - 107
Thanks to everyone who participated. I hope you were at least entertained. And since this is a survey form, we might as well throw out a few questions to everyone. Please see below.

You must be a member to submit this survey. If you are a member please log in first. You can't submit this form until you've logged in.

1)   We're always looking forward to our next class gathering and more impatiently as we age. Our next reunion will be our 60th (yes, you read that right!) and should occur in 2024, which seems a long ways off. We've thought of having a 75th birthday party next year like the 70th party we had in 2016. Setting aside if you can our collective fear of COVID-19, which describes your interest:

  I'd be interested in a 75th class birthday party similar to the last one.
  I'll probably just wait until the 60th reunion.
  I don't care if I ever see you sumbitches again.
2)   We work our old decrepit fingers to the bone keeping this web site running smoothly. Even though some user statistics are available, they're not a great indicator of actual use or levels of interest. Please choose from the following to indicate your typical site usage:

  I check the website daily to stay in touch with our classmates and keep current on class events.
  I visit the site weekly/regularly primarily to chat with classmates and download useful information that can't be found anywhere else.
  You're kidding, right?
3)   Okay, now let us know what you really think. We can take it, or delete it if we can't, so let 'er rip. And thanks again for coming by!
