Good guess, but no.

Here's a kind of a hint: Jerry claimed the bank sent him the wrong kind.

Hey! That looks exactly like the pacifier that Bonnie left behind at my house Friday! See, she needs THAT one. You gotta come back, Jerilyn.

This thread has been dormant for a year, so it is high time to bring it back from the vaults and give it a good dusting off.

Name three practical uses for the Kudzu plant.
Have a nice day, unless you already have other plans.

1. Hiding rusted out cars
2. Scaring children into keeping yards properly trimmed and under control
3. Combating overpopulation by regularly swallowing and consuming drifters

You have the right plant in mind, Adam, but there really are PRACTICAL uses for it, as well. And that was the question, after all.

According to wikipedia,

1) Kudzu is edible. The leaves can be put in a salad, you can fry up the flower blossoms, and the root can be used like any other root vegetable. Pretty much all of the kudzu except the stem is edible.

2) Medicinal purposes. They're working on using kudzu to cure alcoholic cravings. Also migraines, tinnitus and vertigo. And there are compounds in kudzu that are anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-leukemic and cancer preventers! Forget Garlique and Ginko Biloba, I predict in a few years we'll be seeing infomercials to buy pills of Kudzoo as the next cure-all for what ails ya.

3) Can also be used to make soaps, jellies, lotions, and possibly cellulose ethanol! There we go, a solution to the energy crisis, kudzu!

Well done, Keri! I was fascinated by this whole thing... in Japan, where kudzu originated, the climate is different, so it isn't uncontrolled and invasive, like it is in the southeast U.S. They actually USE it for stuff there. Here, the climate is perfect for it to take over and overrun (and envelop) everything in its path.

It makes perfect sense to me that its qualities COULD be harnessed and used in a positive way to solve problems, if the right people would make it their goal.

Anyhow--your turn, KMD.

LOL! I defer my turn to AdamOndi, he ought to get credit for his quick wit. :D Besides, I can't think of anything anyway!

Okay. Although, I must admit that I am not very experienced at creating trivia questions. Just answering them (sometimes snarkily). Here goes:

Name five American TV series that were adaptations of or originally based on British TV series. Bonus points if you can name five successful ones that were actually good when they were brought across the pond.

I'm not very good at this either but lemme' give it a shot.

Can you name the Japanese director, who was greatly influenced by American Westerns, wrote and directed Samurai movies that have since been remade into American Westerns? Bonus points if you can name any of the Japanese originals.
