mind games II

Due to the abounding (2 people counts as abounding, right?) success of last week’s Genius Challenge from mentalfloss.com, I’ve posted this week’s teaser. Instead of state conundrums, this trial revolves around names of countries. A little difficult, but they don’t call it the Genius Challenge for nothin’.

Like last week, I’ll start you off with the answer to number 1. Ok, “No one wins or loses”…Thailand! Get it? Tie-land?

1. No one wins or loses?
2. Sick of ladies’ undergarments?
3. Where the dead live?
4. Land of carry-outs?
5. Where you can hold your head up?
6. It’s not easy being here?
7. It’s the word?
8. “e,” but without the “L”?
9. Home of Alfalfa?
10. Al’s not Down Under?
11. A great place to hang?
12. With or without the Sun God?
13. We are the Third Power?
14. Three Strikes?
15. Sheep, laughs, and mothers?

I’ll post the answers on Friday again – another reason to look forward to the end of the week. I hope the suspense doesn’t do you all in.

Oh, and by the way, I promise this won’t be the only thing I ever post.
