I never knew this law existed. Canadians have laws against winning prizes based on random drawing. So they have to answer word or math problems on any type of sweepstakes.

" See Official Rules for mail entry deadlines. Mail entrants from Canada must also answer the following math skill testing question (within 2 minutes, unassisted (e.g., no calculators) and without any outside help) and include it with their mail entry: "what is 2 plus 2, subtracted by 2, multiplied by 2, divided by 2?""

That law is in place to keep the negros and/or poor people from taking over. Good law.

I'd lose ... even something as simple as 2+2-2x2/2=? got me confused. I actually needed the calculator to get the answer :icon_redf

Growing up in Canada this was always the case. For some reason, I seem to see a lot of answers that are 36. I don't know why.
