It's so much easier to remember when the initial thread is updated!  thanks Maggie!

OK, cakewalk one, isn't there an analogy question in it re: the irony of cakewalk being embarced by the europeans whose style was initially mocked by it ? I think the answer I selected had something to do with popular music. like music that parodies popular music is embraced by popular music.

one of the hubble passage questions was a "what's the best way to end the last paragraph?" something about "big bang theory will probably be retained"...?

That's what I put.  

big bang will likely be retained.

Thoughts on the Hubble one (in case it jars anyone's memory):

there was a question asking "what could replace a good bright candle" in reference to the scientists using those stars to measure brightness and therefore calculating Hubbel. I'm trying to remember what the answer was. Was it something like, they were a good measure of true brightness?

Also, was there an answer that said the scientists (or the author?) would likely think that the stars were not sufficient representative group to measure....?  does that ring a bell?

1) Candle: I chose that they were a measure of true brightness.
2) the question you're referring to was something like:  what would proponents of the big bang theory say in response to the evidence from the Ceph stars

I think that I put down that it shouldn't be completely accepted until further evidence...something like that.

got it, now I remember, agreed.

Anyone remember the one with the seedlings that would scatter only if a disaster took out the other trees...... they could not survive with competing plants.  then something saying the trees were about the same height/age in the area.
maybe this was experimental - not sure which section .... :-[

I got that one too, but i had 3 LR.

I think I chose the one where there were no floods that wiped out the seedlings until after they'd become mature trees...

I chose the answer about no seedlings could survive among the full-size trees, thus the size of trees was uniform when the logging company cleared the area.

Candle one--also pretty positive it was true brightness. this should be finalized to (unless there are objetions)

I also put shouldn't be completely accepted until further evidence.

Actually, that sounds familiar too. I may be just remembering the answer choices...

Agreed. It was the longest answer choice. C maybe.
