Two Quizzes

It's summer, so that means that Fridays are all about the random quizzes. Although, they're not so random anymore, as I've found a couple of websites that specialize in these sorts of things. (I am looking for more go-to quiz sites, so if you know any, feel free to drop them in the comments.) 

Today I'm giving you two, because some of you have expressed a dislike of one or the other. First up: 

Rhymes with "Ox"

In five minutes, you need to find as many one-syllable words that rhyme with "ox" as you can. There are 42 possible. I only found 29. (Type the words in the box at the top. The quiz will take it immediately if it's a match. If it's not, it'll just sit there. Homonyms count.)

Then, another: 

Kennection #470

For this one, type in the answer to the five questions. (I frequently cheat on these.) If it's right, it'll take it immediately. Then, you have to figure out what the five things have in common. I'll give you a hint for this one: geography.

Good luck. And happy Friday.

  1. I looked over the directions on quiz one and drew a blank before even hitting start. Same with the next one. Living in a brain fog this morn so I would just get myself stressed trying them.....good cop out, right?

    1. No worries. You'd hate the first one as it's timed. You can try the second when the brain fog clears ;)

  2. I'm coping out too, I'm a bit rushed today to get things ready for my son's birthday celebration this evening. Have a great weekend Liz. :)

  3. I only got 28 words that rhyme with ox. I don't get how glocks and tocks can't be in there, though.

  4. I didn't try the rhyme with ox. I don't like to be timed! I only knew the answer to one of the others, the last. I didn't even guess at the others! Still wouldn't have gotten the connection though.

    1. The connection can be tough even if you have all the answers. I cheat to find the answers so I can guess at the connection. I don't always get it.

    1. This is why I encourage everyone to cheat. Google the answers. There's no way to cheat on the connection, but you can only get the connection if you have all five answers.

  7. I've been so mentally lazy and the heat (not PNW quality but hotter than normal for us in New York State) just kinds of drains you. I don't even want to work on a crochet problem I have with my latest project. It will probably sit until fall!

    1. Ah yes, I know how mentally draining heat can be.

  8. I thought about trying the first quiz but I'm fairly sure I couldn't beat your 29, I can only think of a few haha!

    Hope that you had a good weekend :) We had a nice relaxing one to kick off the winter school holidays :)

    1. For the rhyming, I go through the alphabet. Take each letter and the sound of "ox". That gets me the majority.
