The fam spent much of the day in our Hyundai Elantra going to & from Osage, IA. The kids traveled pretty well, for the most part. While they were watching a movie in the back seat, Allison and I came up with a new version of a game my parents used to play on road trips. Back in the day, when my sisters and I were listening to our Walkman’s and filling out our Mad Libs books in the back of the van, my mom would read Trivial Pursuit cards to my dad. As we got older, they would occasionally ask the kids some of the questions they thought we would be able to answer.
Anyway, with the use of my Blackberry Curve and an unlimited data plan, Allison found a random assortment of trivia questions on various websites. It was a lot of fun…something I’m sure we’ll do on future trips. One question that stuck with me all day, as we drove past 300+ miles of farmland, was:
What percentage of the cost of produce goes to the farmers — 5%, 15%, 25%?
Sadly, the correct answer was 5%.
