August Points Giveaway -- UPS trivia contest

Why not try something a bit different? Most everyone knows I'm a UPS guy, so to celebrate UPS's upcoming Founder's Day, I created a trivia contest to test your knowledge of UPS.

Shoot me a PM with your answers.

The winner gets 100,000 points.
Second place wins 35,000 points.
Third place wins 20,000 points.

In case of a tie, the last three questions are the tiebreakers.
If still tied after that, I'll do a coin flip or something like that.


Contest will run until August 11th. I'll announce the winner on August 12th.

Good Luck. Sorry, no hints given.
