  1. I watch your program daily so I might have an advantage for such quizzes. I also schooled at Northern Michigan University in Marquette which taught me many such lessons.

    1. Sadly, there are people out there that believe a hat will keep your whole body warm. I can vouch for this; I have seen them in action.

  2. Got 4/5! Who would know that eating fish would warm you up!

  3. 4 out of 5. Didn’t know the one about fish. Probably because I don’t eat a lot of it lol

  4. 3 out of 5..says I must be a warm weather person…very true! I much prefer the warm weather. I actually do eat fish occasionally, and didn’t know until just now that creates heat. Nice to know, especially on cold days!

  5. I don’t know if I’m a true expert (5/5) and I’ll leave it to the real experts (Tom and others). I enjoy the knowledge the everyone on board likes to share with the public.

  6. 4 out of 5 and I live in Nebraska. I think my favorite “season” is autumn after the first frost due to allergies. But when it’s cold and snowy we just “deal with it.” And check of the calendar as one more day closer to spring.

  7. Born, raised, & live in the south. But love to travel to the north
    when our weather gets unbearable in the summer!!!

  8. 5/5 Not bad for someone who prefers summer. But when The Weather Channel speaks, I listen.

  9. 3 OUT OF 5 IM ALL SUMMER BUT WORK OUTDOORS YEAR ROUND AN ONE ABOUT HAT THAT WAS A TRICK ????.THOUGHT THAT WHERE MOST OF BODY HEAT LOST.

    1. Wearing a hat is a key component in staying warm, but it won’t keep your entire body warm. You need to make sure you are as covered from head to toe as you can be!

      1. Brandon, I don’t have a Start button to click to take the test… Wow, my past teenage self is stunned that I WANT to take a test!

          1. There were no questions! Figured out “Ghostery Tracker” was causing the problem… oops. I am now “Trusting this site”. (:
