The Magic 8-Ball Quiz

Did you ever own a Magic 8-Ball? Inside the ball, there's a 20-sided die called an icosahedron that displayed one of 20 answers to your questions when it floated into the window. "Yes" is a given, but how many of the other 19 possible answers can you name in ten minutes without pulling your 8-Ball out of the closet? That's the challenge of today's Lunchtime Quiz at mental_floss. I never owned one, so when I tried the quiz, my first dozen guesses were wrong and I gave up! Link

I never had one either, the only ones I could get were ones I picked up through cultural osmosis. "Signs point to yes" (from the Seinfeld episode with the fur coat) "Outlook not so good" (a common joke among computer people unhappy with Microsoft's email program) and "Reply hazy try again" (not sure where I picked that one up).
