Actually Winnie was the original name...Winifred was a later modification to give it a more "politically correct name" so-to-speak.

Good try though

I'll say the Philadelphia Zoo for #2, but that is just a guess though.

Correct, 20 pts for Dave

Dave can still recieve 100 total, but everyone else is now playing for a total of 50, assuming someone else can get both questions correct.

Eh, I tried. I wasn't positive anyway, so I figured a guess is atleast worth SOMETHING.

I think the penny would reach about 190-200 mph, but that's in a perfect fall, and im not even sure about that...

With the tumbling and wind, etc., it would probably reach about 45 mph i think


im probably wrong.

Wrasslerfan had the general idea so i'll give them the 20 pts. Winnie was a bear found outside of Winnipeg, Canada and for lack of a better name they just called it Winnie.

Still looking for the rate in mph for a penny upon reaching the ground after being dropped from atop the Empire State Building

Now worth 50 points


good try Siehl...close but no cigar
