angelface555

Sorry, try again....but good guess!

Marilyne

#9: What damage did the TV show, Lassie do to the Collie breed? 
Maybe encouraged overbreeding, which then caused health problems and genetic flaws?   

Joy

#3  Bleeding Hearts is a climbing vine plant with flowers that are kind of shaped like a heart.

JOY
BIG BOX

angelface555

Thank you Joy, you are right.

Kelly

Hi Angel
Question 1
Not sure this is the answer you want.

The Panama Canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.  The canal is on the Isthmus of Panama that goes between the Caribeean Sea and the Pacific ocean.

Kelly


angelface555

You are right Marilyne.The worst issue was breeding to get a dog looking like the one on television. Although inbreeding and overbreeding for the distinctive Lassie markings â€" the white blazes and four white feet â€" certainly didn’t help collies, at least the collie was, and is, a gentle dog, with a good family disposition. To have the dog look like the larger dog on TV, the brain cavity was lessened, actually making the dog less intelligent and less able to learn or remember. This did not effect the border collie.

angelface555

Kelly, I had,  "The Panama Canal extends across the Isthmus of Panama from Colon on the Atlantic Ocean (Caribbean Sea) side, to Balboa and the Pacific Ocean." But I agree yours is also correct and its better than my first reaction upon seeing the question elsewhere, was "In Panama"?   :coolsmiley:  ::)

Kelly

Hi angel
Thank you

Continuing;

2.  Whose design is credited for the first windmill?

4.   Why did men orignally shake hands?

5.   What is the Equator and its purpose?

6.   What is the Jib's purpose?

7.   Give me a simple explanation for string theory.

8.   What is a ventricle and why is it important?

10.  Is Asia in the Northern hemisphere?

Andie

#4.   Men shook hands to show that they had no weapons

angelface555

You are correct Andie. It also derived from an older custom of warriors gripping each others forearms. This greeting dates back at least as far as Ancient Greece. ... in Berlin, a funeral stone from the 5th century BC depicts two soldiers shaking hands.

RAMMEL

5.   What is the Equator and its purpose?

       The Equator separates the Northern Hemisphere from the Southern Hemisphere and keeps the widest part of the Earth from bursting due to centrifugal force. It's made of nylon and is very strong.

  Now that Rick, was a hole in one!   ;D  I had "An equator is an imaginary line around the middle of a planet or other celestial body. It is halfway between the North Pole and the South Pole, at 0 degrees latitude. An equator divides the planet into a Northern Hemisphere and a Southern Hemisphere. The Earth is widest at its Equator."

But yours is so much better!
